Set in 25 acres of unspoilt countryside in the pretty parish of Brie-sous-Mortagne, nestled in the heart of the enchanting province of Charente-Maritime. The region is characterised by sweeping uncrowded beaches, pine forests, fields of sunflowers and vineyards.
There are plenty of walking and cycling routes in the surrounding countryside for outdoor enthusiasts. Bikes can be hired from a local company and delivered and collected from our gite complex, so you can explore the beautiful countryside. Pack a picnic and go explore! 

At Bel-Air Gites we’re located just 20 minutes from the seaside resort of Royan and the stunning Roman town of Saintes, which combines culture, art and wonderful shopping. Just 7 kms away is the market town of Gémozac, here you’ll find delicious local produce and  provides all you’ll need to have a go at cooking up some rustic French dishes, or exquisite meats to put on the barbecue.
Head out in the opposite direction and you’ll find yourself portside in the tranquil village of Mortagne, which sits on the Gironde estuary, the largest in Europe. Enjoy lunch at one of the lovely quayside restaurants, with a lovely outlook across the port.
