About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Ian John Shufflebotham

Ian and Val both met in the South of France 25 years ago and after living back in the UK and having 2 young girls, decided to leave the corporate life behind them for a less stressful, peaceful rural lifestyle, in search for a better quality of life.

Year property purchased 2015
Why this location? It is ideal for walks, cycling, mountain biking, photography, art, fishing, history, Cognac tours etc.
Set in a beautiful area of the Charente, the first region of the Grande Champagne with miles of vineyards and sunflower fields.
Maison 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.
Unique benefits of property Rural for peace and tranquility while not being too far from local amenities, such as supermarkets etc. Maison Ruisseau has a private pool but shared between our 3 gites, it is an in ground 9 x 5 metre swimming pool with a large surrounding terrace area. It gives our guests plenty of room, even with full occupancy of max 10-12 people, although we do normally only have 6 people in 2 gites. We also find that with all the gites occupied most people go out to explore the area and the region. All of our gites are well furnished to a high standard and each of them light and airy. We have a beautiful walled tiered courtyard garden with a fig tree and numerous lovely flowers.
It is ideal for walks, cycling, mountain biking, photography, art, fishing, history, Cognac tours etc.
