The Etang Vallier Resort is a fabulous (huge) holiday resort and spa on the edge of a very lovely village called Brossac in the Charente. A few weeks ago we were approached by the manager of the Resort Clubhouse and asked if we would like to perform at their re-opening party… and we thought it would be rude not to accept.
The holiday village is spread over many acres and in the centre is a fabulous lake, edged by sandy beaches. In the summer it’s a hugely popular place to visit and when we arrived yesterday afternoon, in the April sunshine, it felt like a hugely popular place to be in spring too.
The Clubhouse is huge! There’s a main bar and eating area, which opens into another large hall with a pool table and comfy seating and upstairs they have another huge room. The bar opens onto a great terrace with views over the lake; its a lovely place wth a great welcome!
They were expecting a large crowd of locals and visitors alike, so we set up in the corner of the main room and waited for folks to arrive… and arrive they did! The clubhouse was packed… standing room only at the back and lots and lots of people singing and dancing along with The Candies.
It was our first night out with our new set and it was so heart warming to have so many folks loving our songs as much as we do… and great to know that French, Dutch, Spanish and British all seem to love these classic tunes. We’ve had a few messages sent today; here’s a selection
Great night, great music!
Well done to you all – the music was really good fun and everyone had a great evening! x
What a Night! Congratulations!
What GREAT FUN! We had an amazing night!
Best night out we have had for ages! It was brilliant from start to finish but ‘Hey Jude’ was the highlight of the night it had the whole club singing along na nana na!
You ladies were amazing, such a brilliant fun night at Etang Vallier Brossac Club House, Thank you! We danced and sang along all night.
We did have a wonderful evening and we thank everyone for their support and the best news is that Etang Vallier loved us so much they want us back in the summer… so maybe we can have a little al fresco Candies by the lake!
