Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

A very special place.
What a wonderful place to holiday and relax in. Set in beautiful countryside, lovingly restored by owners, Les and Christine, who are the perfect hosts, Maison du Ruisseau has everything for the perfect holiday experience. We were made feel at home from the minute we arrived, with a thoughtful welcome pack set out for us. We loved our accommodation: comfortable, spacious and fully equipped. A very special place.

Amazing venue for peaceful holiday
Maison du Ruisseau was just the most wonderful, tranquil venue for our family get together while attending a wedding. Very well presented. immaculately clean, wonderful garden and swimming pool. Home from Home. Les & Christine were extremely welcoming and most helpful. The village itself was unforgettable, tranquil and just the place for a very relaxed holiday yet within easy access of all motorways and rail terminals. Would highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

Fantastic accommodation
My husband and I stayed at Maison du Ruisseau with our 2 year son, 4 week old baby and the in laws. We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival and lent lots of useful things for the baby. The accommodation was spacious and of a very high standard and worked well for the children and adults. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Maison du Ruisseau to friends.

Excellent
We stayed here with several friends who were all part of a large wedding party staying close by to La Maison du Ruisseau. The accommodation was amazing. Everything you could possibly wish for your holiday. Every little detail was catered for. Christine and Les were so hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. The property is spotless and very spacious. We would have no hesitation in recommending this to our friends. We couldn't fault it in any way - wonderful. Nick and Val Hill, Devon

magical beautiful restful house
La Maison du Ruisseau is a truly enchanting place and is everything the owners Christine and Les said it would be and more. We were greeted very warmly on arrival and felt an instant friendship with our hosts. We were all very impressed, our party included 4 adults and a teenager , we all felt the same. Everything was to a very high standard and having a pool was excellent to relax around and very welcoming in the hot sunny days we spent there. Christine and Les were very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas and offered advise on places of interest and where to eat, they even booked us in a restaurant one night, which was excellent. It is truly home from home and we will be returning.

A Hidden Gem with First Class Service
My Fiance and I stayed at Maison du Ruisseau with my parents at the end of March. We had only booked the one night as we were in the area coordinating details for our wedding, but I wish we had booked for longer! This is quite honestly the best B and B I have ever stayed in, and my parents felt the same and did not want to leave! We stayed in Apartment du Ruisseau which is a two bedroom apartment with kitchen lounge and bathroom. The decor of the apartment was beautiful, so many finishing touches and little details that made you feel instantly at home. Christine and Les who own the accommodation gave us a warm greeting and could not have been more helpful or welcoming throughout our stay. We were shown around the rest of the accommodation and every room has the same high standard, with beautiful interior and immaculate finish- I really cannot sing the praises of the hosts or the accommodation enough! It is in a peaceful and picturesque area of Chadeuil, which is only 5-10 minutes from Chateauneuf so whilst you have the peace and quiet you are not too far away from lovely restaraunts and local attractions. I will definitely be back to Maison du Ruisseau, it was a lovely highlight to a happy trip, and is a hidden gem that cannot be missed!

5 Star accommodation and facilities provided by superb hosts
This was our third trip to Maison du Ruisseau underlining how much we feel at home here. All the accommodation is appointed to a very high standard; the warmth of the welcome from the Sheldons is excellent and they will go out of their way to address all reasonable requests and ensure that your stay is really memorable . Set in the heart of the beautiful Cognac producing area of Charente , Maison du Ruisseau is ideal for comfort , peace , tranquility and service and we give it our highest possible recommendation
