Le Bruet Cottages, Yviers, Chalais, Poitou Charente, France - Edge of pretty village of Yviers, just 4kms from the market town of Chalais

Le Bruet is a farmhouse and four cottage complex set in beautiful countryside ideal for walking, cycling or just relaxing. There is a large shared (12m x 6m) solar heated and fenced swimming pool. The games room has table tennis, tv/video, selection of books and games. The atmospheric old barn is set up for guests to gather for drinks or bbq (David and Jane usually organise a weekly bbq evening for guests). The market town of Chalais (4kms) has an abundance of restaurants, bars, shops and the Monday morning market has real French character not to be missed. Close by (4 to 15kms) there are great river/lake sandy beaches suitable for all ages. Bordeaux, St Emilion and Blaye are all easily reached for restaurants, shopping and wine tours. David and Jane have lived at Le Bruet for 13 years and know the area well. We are happy to help with suggestions for days out and restaurant bookings to suit your party.

Sunny seclusion, with all mod cons!

  • 4 of 5

We chose Chez Bouton , for the wi fi, and pool, and individuality of the gites. We were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful area surrounding the properties ,and the warm reception from David and Jane; they could not have been more helpful or kind, providing all we needed, and a relaxing atmosphere in which to unwind, which we did. The gite was well designed, though an additional back garden would have made it perfect. The other families were a huge bonus as we spent many warm evenings drinking wine together , exchanging experiences, together with our hosts! The area is interesting and varied, and we returned home relaxed and refreshed, and wanting to go back! Thanks Jane and David for a memorable holiday.

Owner's Response: We're very happy that Amanda so much enjoyed her stay here. With 5 gites Bruetgites is an ideal place to socialise just as much or as little as you like - (for more privacy we do have other gites with gardens to the rear as well as the front). We hope to see you again soon. David and Jane.
