Le Beau Paysage is a private 2 bed-roomed Gite, that sleeps 5 plus cot, situated in a rural hamlet outside the town of Ruffec in the Poitou -Charente region of France. Re-opened this year with new owners it offers a tranquil setting to enjoy your vacation. Guests can use the fenced private outdoor pool sharing only with the owner. There are many picturesque villages and historic towns to visit nearby and fishing and canoeing opportunities in the nearby Charente river.
Le Beau Paysage is set in the quiet of La Paiziere predominately resided in by French citizens and therefore we respect the fact that rural French life is an early day with an early finish.
If you are looking for a tranquil setting to explore this beautiful and historic region then this is it!
We are rural but the N10 is nearby for access to Futuroscope, Poitiers and Angouleme for days out and town amenities of Ruffec are just 4 minutes away.
The gite is semi detached to the barn which in turn attaches to the owners house. The gite is self contained and private, and has its own dedicated patio for barbecue's and outdoor dining. Parking is available in front of the gite and the gardens are enclosed and the driveway has gates.
The terrace to the rear of main house is for the owners use but guests may use the rear gardens which are mostly lawned, there is a front garden with fruit trees and flower beds in front of the gite which guests may use. The barn is out of bounds to guests due to items stored therein.
Interaction with guests
The owner lives on site and is available if needed but will leave you in peace if desired.

There is a walk-in department in the local Hospital in Ruffec some 4 minute drive away.
