Brossac, Charente, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Why Brossac? Why indeed? Why choose a village, instead of staying in remote countryside?
Well, for a start, imagine popping out for fresh croissants while the kettle is boiling, or even stepping out for that forgotten bottle of wine! And no need to worry about drinking a few glasses of wine with your restaurant meal!

Join us and experience real life in France.
Sorry - the gite is not suitable for children under 8, due to an unfenced goldfish pond in the grounds. Babies are fine, and we have a travel cot, baby bath and high chair available.

Management response:

We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back. I know it's of no consolation to you, but the wake boarding is back up and running now after fixing their technical problem that meant they could not operate for the past few weeks.

The pool house is just right for small families - we went with our children of 13 and 11 who loved the pool and made good friends with the owner's dog. The house and pool are in a large shared garden. Susan and Dennis went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable, suggesting places to visit...

Management response:

Thank you for a wonderful review - we're so pleased you enjoyed your holiday!
