About the Owners


Welcome to Chez Sarrazin!

We are Sarah and David and only moved to France in early 2015 to 'start a new life'. Previously, we ran our house in Devon as a highly successful B&B and do hope that we can continue to provide the same high level of service to our gite and campsite guests in France as we did in the UK! Between us we have six children and a growing number of grand children who we expect will be visiting us very regularly for long family holidays. We look forward to welcoming you to France too!

Year property purchased: 2015

Why this location?

Sarah likes nothing better than a hot and sunny climate and as Poitou-Charente is the second sunniest region in France, she is now in heaven. The area is just stunning having the most beautiful rolling country-side, historic towns, villages, chateaux and outstanding food and drink. This is truly the centre of the wine, cognac and pineau world - yum! Chez Sarrazin also offers us peace and quiet in its rural setting but just a mile from the lovely village of Brossac with its shops, restaurants and facilities.

What are the unique benefits of the property?

In trying to find the perfect property, we wanted to have our own space. So many gite properties we saw were all side-by-side in a single converted building. The beauty about Chez Sarrazin is that both of our family-friendly gites are each very private and are separated from the main house. The small and intimate campsite is quietly located in a valley below the property so everyone enjoys peace and privacy. And, we are just a 25-minute stroll to a lovely village with 3 good restaurants. Lastly, the swimming pool and its adjoining garden are truly magnificent with wonderful views across rolling Charente countryside.
