Our favourite is at Etang Vallier Resort where you can come for a holiday, come to live in Brossac or simply make an investment in Brossac!

Etang Vallier Resort has 3 areas- one for residential living, one for holiday homes, one for camping in wood chalets. They are spread out and offer great personal space and terrific value. I've combed the countryside and can't find a better value with nicer people!

Etang Vallier Resort hosts open house days for their new build homes every 1st Saturday afternoon of the month. You can meet the builder, visit the homes and find out all about Brossac lake from English speaking hosts.

mayor brossac villageOn first glance, Brossac Charente will appear to be a sleepy little town with a few locals and an old roman church....Look a little further and you'll find a multinational population where you'll overhear conversations from "locals" speaking French, Dutch and English- together planning local events and going about their daily business!

The sleepy town is home to some big developments- both in tourism, nature,services and habitat. Since the spring of 2008, the town is led by Mr Rousselière who is seconded by Mr Baudet- former director of the Chamber of Agriculture - Charente. The population of Brossac is now nearly 600 and the village has the most businesses in the county.
