Attractions around Brossac Village
Lake: Lac Etang
Etang Vallier
16480 Brossac
brossac lac etang

The main attractions just by Brossac village are the two neighbouring lakes- one for leisurely sunbathers and swimmers, while the other sates the thirst of those who want more excitement and want to jetski.
The first lake is located in Etang Vallier, or fondly known as the Village de Vacances, ('Vacation Village'). Indeed, on a sunny day, you will find that you hear more English than French by the beach. Normally, lakes do not have beaches, but this beach has been artificially created. So not only is the sand soft, it remains impeccably clean as smoking and littering is not allowed on this beach. With lake waters and a gradual shoreline, you can choose to soak up the sun on their towel or enjoy a soak right by the edge without getting water in your ears.

For those who want more activity, you can rent small boats and other bouyant crafts for excursions onto the lake. There is also a rope swing for those who want even more excitement. This is no ordinary rope swing though. If you walk up the side of the lake, or swim to it, you will find a sturdy metal chain with a leather strap at the end to assist in making the smoothest slip or the biggest splash. Someone even added a sock to help in the acrobatics. Just a word of warning to those who are no longer of child height: lift your legs up high or you may find yourself body slamming into the lake! The sand is soft though, so no matter what, you'll have fun.
If water sports do not excite you, or lake water causes you hesitation, there is a recreational and sports facility right by the lake. There, you can do laps at the pool, escape to the sauna, or hit a few rounds of squash with your buddies.

Last but not least, do not worry about having to lug heavy bags of food and drink to this lake. There is a clubhouse with a full bar right by the shore, and walking a little bit more will bring you to restaurant bar Quai Sud.
Whether you come in the afternoon or night and whether you want to lay in the sun or take a swim, there is definitely something for you to do here. What are you waiting for?

Facing the Lac Etang is the Clubhouse. Please note that there are two sides to the Clubhouse and that they are run by different owners. There is the snack bar/restaurant side. This side which houses entertainment facilities as well as a kitchen that is open all day until 22:00, so whether you fancy a meal or just a snack the
cooks at the Clubhouse snack bar will be happy to oblige! In the side of the Bar and Restaurant there is a room containing a pool table, football table and a ping pong table. This is also where you can join some friends in a game of crazy golf. Get your putter ready and send those balls careering through tunnels and over bridges and into the hole before your friends do, or you'll have a lot of boasting to listen to. Either way though, you'll have a crazy time! For Americans, this is called miniature golf.

If this isn't enough to send you racing down there right now, you can also play in the bouncy castle, swings, and trampolines with admission into the minigolf course! Of course, if you are a little kid only at heart, it is worth bearing in mind that the bouncy castle and trampoline can only hold one at a time.

In addition to these, the clubhouse now has further activities to keep you entertained. If you like to work on your patience fishing is available both day (until 20.00) and night (from 20.00).
There are passes available for regular fishermen. Please note that the use of bait is forbidden.
If you are more into active sports the clubhouse offers you squash courts where you can challenge your
friends to a match. Do not worry if you did not bring your rackets! You can rent them onsite.

Lake: Lac de Beauvallon
Rue du Lac

26800 Beauvillon
PHONE: 05 46 04 22 99

Nestled in the heart of a pine tree forest you will discover “the Double Saington”, this leisure park comprises a
lake with an artificially created beach available or swimming and free time activities. There are plenty of activities for the family such as: pedal boats, a small harbour, games for children, water bikes, etc. After a swim you can enjoy some refreshments in the restaurant’s terrace or a good meal at lunch or dinner times.

Close by you will find the walking trails right in the heart of the forest and the home to the Maison de
la Forêt. Dedicated to the trees and to human activity, the Maison de la Foret is a historic heritage site
for Montguyon and its surroundings dotted with castles and Roman churches alongside the night markets and various summer events. In the vicinity, you can discover the Dordogne region, the truffle capital; the river Blaye and the Gironde estuary, the village of Aubeterre, one of the most beautiful towns in France. 

Chalais Market and Castle
Chalais Market
Another attraction near Brossac village, though not within walking distance, is the weekly Monday market at Chalais, the city with the nearest train station! Not quite a Farmer's Market, nor a Flea market, you can find all sorts of knick knacks early Monday morning from 08:00 until about mid-day. Perhaps you want some fresh produce, fruit, or meats or perhaps you're more interested in some traditional French hot food. Vendors sell chichis (churros), crêpes, paella, moules (mussels), and other assortments of delicacies. Or if you want a pet, you can buy chickens, roosters, parrots, and even guinea pigs. Or course there are clothes, accessories, and other goodies for the house, like collapsible food nets to keep the flies away from that fragant French cheese you just bought. The vast array of scented soaps and jewellery make excellent gifts.

Chalais Castle
At one end of the market, a steep incline leads you up to Chateau de Chalais, or Chalais Castle. Though no longer functioning as a castle, you can still cross the drawbridge and wander the courtyard and get a glimpse of the rolling hills that make up the Charente region.
Owned by a well known French comedian the castle is in living condition and guided tours of between 1 and 2 hours, sometimes in English, are carried out by very enthusiastic volunteer guides representing the "Association for the Safeguarding of Chalais Country Heritage".
The price of the tour is 8 Euros and it is a very comprehensive tour, which will take you to all the rooms that are in a safe condition to be visited. For example, access to the third floor is restricted as the stairs have not been restored to allow access. Having said that, if you do decide to  visit you will find that most of the other rooms contain something of interest, including much beautiful period furniture. Please note that photography is not permitted in much of the inside.
Every weekend and Bank Holiday
15.00 -18.00
Tuesdays to Sundays
15.00 – 18.00

In addition, there is a restaurant cafe right up in the courtyard. So if you want do as the French do and sip some coffee or tea, order up a drink from the friendly owner and sit in the shade and watch as the sun's rays warm up the day. They also have a set menu for lunch.
