Relaxing, Chilled Holiday With Plenty Of Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7 (4 adults & 3 children aged 7-11) and found the chalets clean, comfortable and spacious. Our chalet was within easy walking distance of both the clubhouse, lake and outdoor swimming pool. We had a fabulous time at Etang Vallier - the moment we arrived onsite, we were greeted by Nina who was extremely helpful and she went above and beyond to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. The Clubhouse was the perfect place for food and drink and the kids were kept entertained with the indoor games room, the bouncy castle, crazy golf and swings. The lake was used by all of us and even though the two youngest children weren't great swimmers, we were comfortable with them swimming in the lake as it is not too deep. The outdoor pool was clean and there was never any issue with getting a sun lounger. There was plenty of entertainment at night with live music several times a week.

Our chalet had a balcony overlooking to road to the Clubhouse and we had our own private BBQ which was used at several stages during our holiday...we didn't even need to buy any charcoal. The kitchen was fully equipped and the dishwasher was a useful addition. The pièce de résistance was having fresh croissants, pain au chocolat and baguettes delivered fresh each morning to our chalet - yummy!

The resort is only minutes from the sleepy village of Brossac but there is a good sized supermarkets not too far away in Chalais and Barbezieux. Chalais also had a great market once a week. We also visited the water park at Jonzac, the lake at Beauvallon and a day trip to Bordeaux. All suggestions courtesy of Nina! Everyone we met was friendly and plenty of people had been returning to the resort for years...and we could understand why.

If you're looking for a family friend, relaxing holiday, then you can't go wrong with Etang Vallier. We can't wait to return again when the indoor swimming pool and spa will be open.

Etang Vallier, we will be back!

What a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in a luxurious villa. It was well equipped and comfortable for a large family. The terrace was beautiful, the lake warm and the resort in good, clean condition. It is a little oasis. We will definitely be going back.

Car: recommended

Brossac is located only 40 minutes from Angouleme, 45 minutes from Cognac, 1 hour from Bordeaux and 1h15 minutes to Royan (St Georges de Didonne) on the Atlantic coast. Bergerac airport is only 1h 30 minutes.

Take advantage of the location to make a couple of daytrips during your stay. The roads are good, and you aren't far!

Close at hand is the north of Dordogne and one of the most beautiful villages of France - Aubeterre. The area offers also many farm visits, markets, vinyard tours and only 5 minutes from the resort is a lake reserved for jet skis and moto quad activites. Just 10 minutes away you will also find the well hidden Circuit of Haut Saintonge which offers auto moto racing and go carting.

There are numerous equestrian centres, historic sites, hiking paths, farm visits, wine and pineau tasting and much more... Great for a quiet, but not boring trip to the country.
