“Peaceful and Elegant”
Reviewed 18 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have holidayed in France over the past 20 years but had never visited the Charente. Arriving at Le Petite Maison we soon realised that we had discovered a real gem. It is beautifully decorated, really well equipped and has the most amazingly comfortable bed. And then there are Les and Christine who are the most incredibly friendly and helpful hosts you could wish for. We had a wonderful week and wish we had stayed another

“5 * Accomodation & 5* Hosts”
Reviewed 15 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at La Petite Maison.
It had everything we could possibly require - as described in the property information .. & all was fully functioning. We had a beautiful, comfortable bed & linen, big fluffy towels, walk in shower... - home from home! The view onto the pool was very special & we had very enjoyable breakfasts, lunches & late night drinks there.
Christine & Les are professional, welcoming hosts & nothing is too much trouble for them.
This is an ideal place for a get-away-from-it-all break, a tour of the Cognac area or a family/friends reunion (the complex of 3 gites can be block booked).
Many thanks for a wonderful time!

“Perfect rural retreat”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at La Petite Maison.
The gite exceeded all our expectations, it is beautifully situated in the small hamlet of Chadeuil a few KM off the motorway running from Angouleme to Bordeaux. The accomidation is extremely well kitted out with more than enough glasses, plates, cutelery, pots , pans etc. While ther is no washing machine in the gite, Christine iallows you to use hers when you want. The standard of decoration is very high and quality of furnishings linen. towels etc excellent. We felt the bed was probably one of the most comfartable etiher of us have ever slept in!!
Les & Christine are fantastic hosts, really making a huge effort to ensure everyone staying at the gites is enjoying themselves - they even threw a drinks party on their terrace, for all guests, one evening while we were staying!!
As we were staying 2 weeks Christine allowed me to see all three gites - and I have to say the other 2 were equally as nice as ours
The area around Chadeuiil is great - rolling countryside with fields of vines and sunflowers. There are plenty of toens and villages close by, and lots great restaurants if you dont fancy cooking. All amenities can be found in nearby Chateauneuf, (complete with railway station conecting to Aungleme, Royan, Cognac etc) a few minutes away by car or about 20 by bike. We loved going there in the morning for coffe, and to shop at the local market - I'd expecially recommend the fish stall.
If you don't feel like going out, then the pool area and gardens are great to chill in. A lot of thought has gone into providing different zones for guests to use
All in all I have no problem highly recommending these gites if you are looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of France - you will come back completely refreshed!!

“Amazing, relaxing week”
Reviewed 20 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed at the La Petite Maison after getting married in the Charente and we had the most amazing, relaxing week.
We had planned to visit lots of places around France and use the Maison as a base, but we felt so comfortable there we just decided to stay local and only going as far as Cognac.
Christine and Les are brilliant hosts and very welcoming, sharing lots of interesting places to visit. whilst we were staying with them they invited us to the local village fete that was being held in their orchard, we joined in with the locals and their families and had a wonderful evening, everyone was so nice!
We would defiantly come back and visit, this time stay for 2 weeks.

“Tranquility, comfort and thoughtful and welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 31 January 2012 for a stay in September 2011

What a great holiday and what lovely accommodation!

We were made so welcome and every need provided for. The home grown figs walnuts were very special. The gîte was lovely, the surroundings really peaceful and the bed – oh so comfortable! We couldn’t have wished for more. Would love to come again and definitely recommend the accommodation at Maison du Ruisseau.

“Accommodation is faultless, truly, we discussed it, and there’s nothing we would change.”
Reviewed 27 January 2012 for a stay in August 2010

One week in the Petite Maison, Charente, what could be more perfect? Well, certainly, two weeks! Accommodation is faultless, truly, we discussed it, and there’s nothing we would change.

Christine and Les were perfect hosts, helpful, kind, informative, the list goes on…..

The Charente is a beautiful region, with lots to see, more than we had time for.

We return home relaxed but reluctant. Many thanks.
