A comfortable and relaxing retreat in the heart of the Cognac region

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Le Petit Moulin. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, and well equipped for self catering. The garden was an added bonus after a long day touring the neighbouring villages. Christian made us very welcome and ensured that we were comfortable by making contact each day. Monty the dog was also very friendly and loved a game of fetch the ball!

Petit Moulin is very well located for touring the region, being a short distance from Cognac and Jarnac. We also followed the recommendations in the house book and went to La Rochelle(well worth the trip), Saintes( a lovely town with lots of history) and Aubeterre(great for wandering and finding hidden gems). Another village we found interesting was Jonzac.

We would recommend this property to others, but they need to be aware that traffic/train noise can be a hindrance while in the garden. Inside it was not a problem. We found the bed a little too hard for our liking, though still managed to get a good nights sleep after busy days.

Beautifully converted water mill gites

  • 5 of 5

The owners Anne and Christian have thought through every detail in these Gites. We stayed in the smallest one, Esprit, which is perfect for two adults. There is a large bed with high quality bed linen, massive bath towels (rare in French accommodation!) sharp knives and a set of good pans in the kitchen. These tick all our boxes for a self catering holiday home so within a few minutes of arriving we were settled and very happy with our choice. There is a large shared garden by the water which has lots of different seating and tables, perfect for anytime of day and all safe and secure behind electric gates. Anne is very welcoming and on hand for any queries about the property and the surrounding area, Christian is so friendly and very gracious about our rather pathetic French. Petit Moulin Gites were perfect for our first visit to this area of France.

Very comfortable and charming

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this gìte it was very comfortable and had everything we needed to fill our needs. A very picturesque garden with a river running through it made a relaxing place to have a glass of wine (or two).

We had our own parking space and easy access to a local bakery.

Ann and her husband were perfect hosts extremely helpful and available to offer information.

We were greeted with a bottle of wine and very nice goodies in refrigerator to start our stay.

Very much appreciated and highly recommended.
