Le Moulin de Chazotte is nestled amidst the vineyards and sunflower fields of Cognac country. The mill sits astride the river Chazotte, which was once used to power the mill on the site. With 11 acres of land mixed between woodland, open fields and gardens, the mill is blissfully remote with the only other inhabitants being other guests and the local wildlife - from occasional deer and wild boar to the many birds of prey circling the blue skies above, or even the elusive kingfisher whistling down the river.
If you wish for a bit more action during your holiday, the nearest village, Cherves-Richemont, is just a short drive away (2 km) and offers a small selection of local shops and services. A little further afield (7km / 10 mins drive) is the beautiful, historic town of Cognac. The surrounding towns of Angoulême, Saintes and St. Jean d'Angély are steeped in Roman and Medieval history with fascinating architecture and bustling markets. The gorgeous French seaside towns of La Rochelle and Royan are just over an hours drive and the famous vineyards of Bordeaux slightly further but well worth a visit. You can find some of our recommendations for things to do and places to see here...
Because of its location, a car is highly recommended for guests. Of course other forms of transport are also an option, particularly bike hire which is very popular in the area and something we can help you arrange for your stay.
