What a beautiful place to stay. So much to do for all ages, from the very young to the oldies. We were there for 2 glorious weeks in August with 2 teenage boys. There is more than enough to keep everyone occupied and happy.
There is a decent size swimming pool with loads of inflatables, plenty of sunloungers, some in the shade if needed. In the Games Room you'll find a full-size pool table which flips over into an air-hockey game, a football table, board games, books galore for all ages, a PS with games, lots of toys, boules with a great area to play on. Outside of here is a large field with a football net, badminton net and a couple of trampolines, lots for the youngsters.
The accommodation is beautiful, very comfortable and enough room. Everything you could need for a self-catering holiday. Each Gite has an outside area with table and chairs and sunloungers, also with a barby.
There are bikes available to use, they even provide helmets and hi-viz vests.
The owners are 2 amazing people. They are very welcoming and nothing is any trouble. They arrange a 'welcome' Barby on your second night so everyone gets to know each other. They have a great knowledge of the local area and full of recommendations. Lovely couple.
The views in the area are amazing, lots of sunflower fields and open countryside. You're not too far from supermarkets either.
Highly recommend this place, perfect for any age group and for larger groups holidaying together. Thankyou xx

A wonderful accommodation matched by the owners' genuine care for their guests and attention to detail.
Our third (and not last) stay in Brux.
Ideal setting for families with children and looking to unwind. Very well equipped and private set up with everything you need to relax and enjoy a peaceful break.
Only 40 minutes ' drive from the lovely city of Poitiers and easy to get to from local airports.
Well stocked supermarkets within 15 minutes' drive and good convenience village shop within walking distance.
Plenty attractions around too.
Would definitely highly recommend!

What can we say !! we throughly enjoyed our Holiday! Brian and Dorothy were amazing hosts and nothing was ever a bother.
They put on a BBQ for all the gites and we all had a lovely time and all got to know each other, we were treated like family.
The facilites for children are all enclosed and everything was safe and there was lots for the children to do.
The Pool again was enclosed with an alarm system too - we had great fun here and lots of inflatables were provided.
There is a games room and gym again great fun.
Brian and Dorothy also gave us a welcome pack upon arrival this was such a lovely touch - fresh bread, cheese, jam, tea, coffee milk and for the adults wine !!
the gite itself was lovely- home from home.

We will be coming back , massive thankyou to them x
