A beautiful open plan cottage set in a very relaxed, tranquil location. Very conscientious owners who are so lovely! The new pool was also a very big hit with our girls! We had a perfect holiday! Thank you!

This was a beautiful relaxed location. The cottage was just as advertised... all very pleasing and easy going .... nothing to fault . Spacious and extremely well equipped ... but what made it even more special were the owners whose sheer niceness and genuine welcome topped it all... thank you !

Beautiful cottage and location. You simply won't find any better cottage to stay in - everything you need, clean, comfortable and quiet. The most noise we heard all week was the crickets (oh and our young children of course who really enjoyed the swimming pool - a real bonus which and bath like thanks to the solar heating. Thank you for a lovely stay. We'll be back!

The location in this part of France is beautiful and very quiet. Close to lots of places to visit especially Angouleme and Poitier. The property is in a lovely spot and is superbly appointed. Everything you will need is there. The decor and quality of the rooms is second to none. In fact it's quite difficult to want to leave the gite to go out as its so relaxing. The pool, sun beds and table tennis are all great and we borrowed their bikes and there are some lovely rides all from the gite. Sauze Vaussais and Montjean both have boulangeries and the former has a supermarket and other shops.

A wonderful rural retreat! So peaceful! Alison and Francis are so helpful and provide everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stress free holiday for all ages. Thank you!

If you want peace, go here. The location is beautiful and all you need is included. Perfect to chill out and let the world go away for a while. The owners are truly interested in you enjoying your time there. We have stayed in their other gites and have always been completely satisfied by their attention to detail. Nothing is too much trouble and I highly recommend a visit.

Le Ruisseau Perdu is a real gem hidden away in the midst of the beautiful Charente country side. However not too far away from the coast for a day trip. Francis and Alison have a wonderful eye for interiors and have collected a enviable range of shabby chic French furniture for the house. The rooms were really comfortable with enough room for four adults and four children. We loved the personal touches of homemade Pineau, and jams. The children loved the table tennis and games. They would have loved the pool too, only it was a little early in the season. All in all we had a wonderful stay.
