Le Figuier has two bedrooms upstairs and a shower/toilet room. Downstairs, there is a large lounge/kitchen/diner with a washing room and an additional toilet. With one double and one twin bedroom and a new sofa bed, the gite is ideal for families. The gite benefits from having mosquito blinds to all bedroom windows. The gite enjoys shared use of a large, floodlit swimming pool, safe children's play area, table-tennis table, boule and badminton courts and gym.

Le Figuier enjoys fast and free WiFi throughout the gite and even on the patio. Le Figuier is located in six acres of well-maintained, landscaped grounds on the outskirts of Brives sur Charente, just ten minutes' drive from Cognac. Quiet and peaceful, the gite has easy access to all amenities, including local markets for bargain hunting, and many excellent restaurants for eating out. We are minutes away from a superb choice of local restaurants and some thirty minutes' drive from the superb beaches of the Cote Sauvage. There is a mouth-watering choice of places to visit locally (the beautiful beaches of the Cote Sauvage, Royan, La Rochelle, Cognac, Pons, Saintes, Angouleme, Bordeaux, La Palmyre Zoo and sleepy villages) and a host of activities, including walking, cycling, fishing, canoeing, horse-riding, golf, tennis, swimming and surfing. You can enjoy a relaxing walk or cycle ride to the nearby villages for your breakfast croissants or bread. We hope you will choose Gites de Brives to savour what France has to offer the discerning visitor.More

Stunning rural location. Got a taste of real France. Very well equipped and tastefully decorated gite. Relaxing holiday, with plenty to do around and about if you wanted to. This was a great family holiday. I travelled with my husband and 3 children aged 11-17....More

About the neighbourhood
The surrounding area has a great deal to offer from the buzzing town of Cognac (lots of cafes and boutique shops, not forgetting the world-famous distillery tours - Hennessy, Otard, Remy-Martin, Martell and Camus!), to the beautiful ancient towns of Pons and Saintes. Weekly local markets are held in Cognac, Pons and Saintes. There are a multitude of local restaurants and bars all within an easy drive. Some are (luckily!) only about 15 minutes by bike. The beautiful beaches of St George-de-Didonne and St Palais-sur-Mer are a 30 minute drive way and La Palmyre Zoo (one of the biggest zoos in Europe with over 1600 animals to delight all the family) is about an hour's drive. Other 'bits': Post Office: Brives sur Charente. Local shops: Salignac, Perignac, Dompierre and Rouffiac. Supermarkets:...
How to get there
We are 12 mins from Cognac and 12 mins from Pons - with Saintes 20 minutes away. Getting to Brives sur Charente is easy - exit the A10 at junction 36 (Pons). We are 4-5 hrs drive from St Malo and Caen; 6 hrs from Cherbourg, Le Havre and Roscoff; 7 hrs drive from the Tunnel, Calais and Boulogne (Brittany Ferries & LD Lines offer good services). You will enjoy using your car while you are here because there is so much to see and do! Train: TGV (Paris to Angouleme or Saintes, 2.5 hours -ish). Connexion to Cognac (local station). Local Airports: Angouleme 30 mins, La Rochelle 1 hr 10 mins, Bordeaux 1 hr 15 mins. It is also possible to fly to Nantes, Poitiers or Limoges but the airports are almost a two hour drive away. Try Ryanair, Easyjet, BA, Flybe, BMIBaby and Air France. You ca...
