Phil and Glyn are the perfect hosts - always friendly, helpful and accommodating to the point of booking us a meal at an excellent local restaurant for our first night in case we needed it - which we did as we were exhausted after a long drive. They were always available to recommend interesting and beautiful places to visit which... More

We booked the family holiday hoping for a perfect break, and we weren't disappointed. Glyn and Phil were great hosts from when we arrived until we headed home. The Gite was perfect, surrounded by fields of Sunflowers and Vineyards, the pool was as mentioned in other reviews spotlessly clean and warm. Many interesting places to visit in the area, great...

Made so welcome from the start, we were delighted by all aspects of this holiday and gite! Phil and Glyn are perfect hosts who cannot help enough, yet have the knack of showing up only when you need them. They provide a lovely box of food on arrival - teabags, coffee, milk, bread, local butter, wine and a delicious pot... More

We stayed in the Studio flat in July and were pleasantly surprised as it was nicer than in the video, and the views from the windows were much greener. We found it well equipped and comfortable and we had plenty of space for 2. The fly screens on the windows are a real boon! We didn’t miss an oven and... More

Wonderful week in very relaxing surroundings! Lots to do in the area. Close to Cognac and Saintes as well as the coast. The gite was beautiful - kids loved the pool. Lots of space to run around. Phil and Glyn were very friendly and helpful, giving advice on local events, restaurants etc. We also loved the croissants in the morning!

We have just returned home from an excellent holiday at Gites de Brives. Although we had viewed the video tour that Phil has posted online, we still found that our gite (Le Figuier) and the grounds as a whole far exceeded our expectations. Phil and Glynn were perfect hosts, they are always available when required but also go out of... More

What a wonderful place! We all had a lovely holiday at Gites de Brives and do not have a bad word to say - infact we are thinking about returning in a few years time. The gite (Le Marronnier) was spotless and very comfortable with everything we needed for our holiday. We thought it was well laid out and very... More

We have just returned from a week staying in Le Figuier at Gites de Brives. The gite was spotlessly clean and thoughtfully equipped with just about everything you could need and more for a comfortable stay. It had a large private patio area which received the sun all day, (a large umbrella is also supplied) and was a great place... More

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
