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. The Gites are set in idyllic countryside surrounded by fields of vines or sunflowers. They have a lovely pool, table tennis, field for ball games, badminton/volleyball net, boules... More

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. They were a bit like the storekeeper in the Mr Ben programmes - just when you needed them they magically appeared! The accomodation (Le Marronnier) was spotless and... More

Just back from a week staying in Les Granges, the largest of the gites on site. We had a warm welcome including an excellent box of staples to start us off ( including dishwasher tablets and all cleaning stuff). The gite was exceptionally clean and well provided for. Phil and Glyn were always around if we needed help but were... More

Gites De Brieve has a wonderful setting among fields of sunflowers and vines. We enjoyed hiring their bikes and cycling around the local villages. The Gite was comfortable and airy with all the amenities you need for your holiday. Our 12 year old son enjoyed the pool, table tennis and badminton/volley ball area. The larger towns of Santes and Cognac... More
