About Ian and Val
Ian and Val both met in the South of France 26 years ago and after living back in the UK and having two children, decided to leave the corporate life behind them to settle in this beautiful area of the Charente, the Grande Champagne region with miles of vineyards and sunflower fields. Maison du Ruisseau being the main house, is a beautiful restored Charentaise building dating back to 1838 with three gites, two separate from the main house, and one gite attached to the rear of the house. It is set in 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 Bellevigne
Beautiful gites in the Chateauneuf sur Charente area near Cognac and Angouleme, all private and secluded within the premises with a shared swimming pool. Peaceful location amongst vineyards and fields of sunflowers. Excellent access from Bordeaux airport 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.
