About Ian and Val

Maison du Ruisseau is a beautiful restored Charentaise house dating back to 1838 with a beautifully matured open courtyard garden of wild flowers, lavender, wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle and a beautiful fig tree.

We took over this business of 3 gites, each with it's quality, charentaise style and individuality, and to increase it's popularity as a home away from home in one of the most beautiful regions of France.

Ian and Val purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Ian and Val chose Malaville

This property and our two other properties are equipped to a very high standard, but most of all, we are very proud of the quality of each of our gites and how we look them and after our guests. We want you to feel at home and offer a welcome pack of essentials on arrival including a good bottle of local wine. Nothing is too much trouble. Many other gites we feel do not come up to this standard.

So come stay with us in these beautiful gites in the Chateauneuf sur Charente area, near Cognac and Angouleme, all private and secluded within the premises with a shared swimming pool. .

Excellent access from Bordeaux airport and other regional airports nearby. Many local good restaurants and not far from the coast in Royan.

What makes this cottage unique

Maison du Ruisseau is "a real get away from it all location" set in the heart of the Charente. Originally a farmhouse built in 1838, it has been tastefully and lovingly restored by the previous owners maintaining many of the character features of the region and equipped to the highest standard. The 3 gites may be rented individually or as one unit. It is set within a very pretty walled garden with complete privacy. Each property has its own individual style complete with its own terrace. The swimming pool is to the rear of the property and is fitted with a safety alarm in accordance with French law. The Charente is a beautiful unspoilt area of France, set in the heart of the Cognac vineyard region. It is an excellent location to access many of the local towns and surrounding areas. The landscape is rich and varied with acres of sunflowers and vines. Cognac is 30 min. drive where you can visit many of the famous distilleries. Or, the picturesque vineyards of St Emilion which are a pleasant hours drive away. There is also the picturesque town of Angouleme with its impressive views and lots of shops in its historic centre.
