About the property


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.

Fabulous gite

  • 5 of 5

The gite was absolutely fantastic and equipped with everything you needed. It is set in a wonderful location - peaceful but close enough to Chalais to buy everything you need. The owners, Jane and David were wonderful and keep the gite complex in immaculate condition. I would definitely return here.
