Conveniently located close to the large village of Brossac with shops and restaurants in the sunny southern Charente, Chez Sarrazin comprises 2 family-friendly gites. Each gite has a capacity of 8; they are completely separate from one another and the owners' accommodation so high levels of privacy can be enjoyed. There is an excellent, in-ground, full-depth, secure 12 x 6m pool with outstanding views of the stunning countryside.
The south of the Charente, bordering the Dordogne, offers beautiful countryside, a wonderful sunny climate and an opportunity to see France at its best. The quiet lanes are ideal for touring around by car, bicycle or on foot to explore the countryside, historic villages and towns, the lakes and the authentic local character such as markets, good restaurants, vineyards and cognac distilleries. Chez Sarrazin provides an excellent base to explore the many attractions of the Charente and Dordogne. It is a short distance from the village of Brossac with its old stone houses set around the 12th century church. There is a good range of facilities including restaurants, tennis and bocce courts, bakeries, grocery stores, a pharmacy and a butcher. A tourist office is located in the town hall. The pretty town of Chalais, dominated by its 16th century castle, is located 10 minutes drive away and has many shops and a supermarket as well as a colourful and lively market on Monday mornings. One of the highlights of the summer is an international show and during the year there are concerts and exhibitions in the castle and its gardens. Also within easy reach is Aubeterre-sur-Dronne which boasts an exceptional cultural heritage which, combined with its beautiful natural surroundings and the famous French “art de vivre”, makes it the perfect place to visit. Officially listed as one of The Most Beautiful Villages in France it has welcomed tourists, visitors and pilgrims on their way to Spain for over 1000 years. Visitors today can enjoy meandering through the narrow streets, popping in to admire the many specialist shops, including a leather worker and potters, and then settling down in the village square at one of the cafés or restaurants, comfortably shaded by ancient lime trees. Also within easy reach are: Royan on the Atlantic coast; Bordeaux, the historic and cosmopolitan city; St Emilion and Cognac, known worldwide for their famous wine and cognac; Périgueux; Bergerac; Riberac with its famous weekly market; Poitiers with the famous Futuroscope and the Vallée des Singes monkey park; and Angoulême, the walled capital of the Charente with shopping boulevards and historic buildings.
