A good sized gite in pristine condition, fully equipped and perfect for a couple wanting a beautiful and tranquil setting. The property is located in the rural village...

This was our second year at La Maison du Ruisseau and why I didn't write a review last year I have no idea, so here goes. This gite complex is without a doubt, the best place anyone could wish to spend a holiday. My husband and I have been in two of the gites and they are beautiful, very tastefully...

Chateauneuf sur Charente is our closest town built in the plains and hills bordering the Charente with 3500 inhabitants. On market days Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays it is a place where people gather to sit and catch up in the local bars and cafes whilst leisurely shopping. There are two large supermarkets, three banks, chemists, bars, restaurants, doctors and a hospital. In the opposite direction is the town of Barbezieux St Hilaire which is larger than Chateauneuf with more restaurants a larger market and a hospital with an emergency department. Jonzac is just 15 minutes drive away where there is a large leisure complex with indoor and outdoor swimming, gym, solarium and spa. This pretty village has a market on Fridays and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to explore.
