We have just returned home from our second stay in La Grange at Gites de Brives. Our fortnight was spent with a mixture of relaxation and activity at this beautiful base in the heart of the French countryside. Delightfully rural yet with fast, easy access to lovely towns such as Cognac (we would thoroughly recommend the Martell tasting tour), Saintes... More

Gites de Brives was great value, well equipped and a real pleasure to stay at. The owners were friendly and very helpful without being intrusive. The local area offers something for everyone, great tourist attractions, river adventures, beaches and great local activities. Do hope we have the opportunity of returning!

Lovely quiet country location. First class welcome. Tastefully decorated rooms (we booked 4) with en suite bathrooms and access to a sitting room with books, games and television. We would definitely recommend this B&B for demanding travellers.

We stayed at Gites de Brives for two nights during our slow trip from Paris down to Spain. We found the location easy to find and handy to many of the nice little local towns. We stayed in one of the upstairs double rooms and found the amenities second to none for a B&B. We had open access to all... More

Lovely, redeveloped property in rural France. Hosts were very welcoming with some excellent advice/info on local places of interest, especially from Glyn. We arranged the booking on-line some months ahead, Phil was very helpful in providing directions and responding to all our questions Our room was a double, situated at the top of the house. Spacious, with huge, modern, on-suite... More

Hi Clive Glyn and I are really glad you enjoyed your stay with us. You managed to choose one of the hottest weeks of the year! We wish you had said to us that sleeping was a problem as we provide electric fans if guests request them..... More

We managed to book B&B just a day in advance as we travelled down from Calais and so pleased we did. Communicating with Phil and Glyn by internet and phone, for the booking and final directions, was excellent and a sign of things to come. They are very welcoming hosts who were kind and helpful - nothing was too much... More

We found the Gites de Brives charming; great facilities (pool, table tennis, badminton, boules etc) with hosts Phil and Glyn striking the perfect balance of being helpful (nothing too much trouble) but not invading our precious holiday time too much. We cycled, swam in the river, toured distilleries, canoed (down weirs!), walked, played tennis, and spent time on the lovely... More

We have just returned from two weeks staying in La Marronnier at Gites de Brives it was the best accommodation we have stayed in in France, clean, well equiped, comfortable and spacious.

We visited Gites de Brives for a week before travelling further north for the 2nd week of a our fortnights holiday. Phil and Glyn were exceptionally friendly and helpful, but never intrusive.
