Overview

Property

Updated: 22-Nov-2016
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.

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Cour which was perfect for two people with excellent facilities for a lovely relaxing holiday . We found the gite to be very clean, the grounds, gardens and good size swimming pool were all very well maintained - in fact online photographs really do not do this lovely complex justice. David and Jane do a wonderful job here. Their hospitality, helpfulness and friendliness was much appreciated - the bbq nights in the lovely barn were really enjoyable - especially enjoyed by all the children there. I would highly recommend Le Bruet gites if you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday in a small complex with very good comfortable accommodation yet only a short drive to supermarkets, restaurants and sightseeing. A delightful holiday it was for us - thank you David and Jane.
