Overview

About the property

Large gite + two self contained studios suitable for 2 - 15 people. River views

Moulin de Chantegrolle is an old wood mill which dates back to the 1700's. Today it is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Vienne with more than 700 guests each year. We design and host bespoke yoga, art and music retreats but we are also open throughout the year for non-yoga residents searching for the perfect spot to rest for one night or for several weeks.

Feedback from our guests suggests the popularity of Moulin de Chantegrolle is down to the following features that make it stand out from the crowd:

- Unique location benefiting from a glorious riverside, rural setting yet less than 1km to bars, restaurants, cafes and shops

- Lovely renovated rooms in historical old building but with essential modern touches including excellent wifi and coffee machines

- 3 acre gardens and streams teaming with wildlife that kids and couples adore

- Lovely pool open to all our guests

- Weekly yoga classes open to guests in the garden yurt and open air yoga studio

- Super friendly hosts and superb breakfasts

- onsite health food cafe and wood fired pizza oven

Our flexibility also makes us very appealling as we can provide everything from a simple nights bed and breakfast to a three week family vacation or tailor made yoga or art retreat for groups and friends. Just contact us to discuss your requirements and we'll work with you to design the perfect stay.

Our gite is part of the old watermill set in three acres of gardens which are just 100 metres from the beautiful Charente river and surrounded by nature reserves. We offer true rural charm combined with east access to the medieval village of Charroux with its famous abbey, bars, boulangeries, producteurs and restaurants.

- Our gite sleeps 2 to 8 people

- B&B studio 1 sleeps 1 to 4 people

- B&B studio 2 sleeps 1 to 4 people
