Wonderful Relaxing trip in the Countryside

  • 5 of 5

We recently travelled to France for the first time from Australia. Our last week of our holiday was spent in this wonderful home. We are a family with 4 young children and found this accommodation a dream. Everything you could possibly imagine was provided in the house from descriptive tourist information to a good selection of DVDs. The kitchen was very well equipt. There was even fruit on the fruit trees! The pool was just lovely. The owners have put together a great manual of the operation of everything in the house as well as places to eat and shop. Communication between the owners and ourselves was prompt and informative. I could not recomend this house enough and it was a highlight of our trip.Thanks Trefor and Maureen,

Le Moulin Des Ances

  • 5 of 5

The house and the grounds are wonderful in fact the photographs do not do the place justice. Clean and comfortable and very welcoming we felt instantly at home. The pool is astounding and the private patio areas are in sunshine all day and not overlooked. The location of the house is good and easy to find. We were in constant contact with the owners who were extremely friendly and helpful. All in all a great holiday experience. We would have no hesitation in recommending.

Le Moulin des Ances

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property in excellent order. All mod cons including internet. In 10 years of visiting various villas in France this is the best we've found yet. The description is accurate and the owners very helpful throughout our stay. Highly recommended! A+

Would recommend dining out at La Rochelle by the old port.

A very relaxing break!

Property 94733 Villa - Nr. La Rochelle, France

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time during our stay at this beautiful villa near La Rochelle. The house is superb - it has been furnished/decorated to a high standard and every detail has been thought through with great attention to detail. We had such a wonderful time swimming and relaxing in the grounds that we went sight-seeing reluctantly! We hope to return again next year and would thoroughly recommend this accomodation highly to both sightseers and those wishing to indulge in complete relaxation.

Rhonda & Steve, Buckinghamshire.

excellentes vacances dans une très belle maison

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passe deux semaines dans la maison. Un couple avec deux ados. La maison est très belle, très confortable et bien équipée, comme si c'était votre propre maison de vacances. Très belle cuisine donnant sur la terrasse avec la piscine un peu plus loin. Les chambres sont immenses, les lits très confortables (160 cm). La piscine est parfaite, chauffée très propre très bien entretenue. A notre disposition aussi la table de ping pong, les raquettes de badminton. Les propriétaires ne vivent pas sur place mais sont très disponibles par mail en cas de question et la voisine qui nous a accueilli est discrète et efficace. Le jardin est grand et agréable. Nous avons pu profiter des mirabelles également. Linge fourni et en grande quantité, maison très bien tenue. Seul petit défaut de la maison, la route qui passe en bout de jardin est assez circulante et bruyante ( axe Surgères/Rochefort). Mais sur la terrasse et dans la piscine on est de l'autre coté donc ça nous a peu gêné. Merci très sincèrement de nous avoir donné l'occasion de passer de très bonnes vacances dans cette maison.

Le Moulin des Ances provides a perfect centre for visiting the region. The picturesque port of La Rochelle, the beach resort of Chatelaillon and Le Marais Poitevin (Green Venice) are half an hour away. Inland you can drive to Saintes and Cognac in an hour and to the Futuroscope at Poitiers in less than 90 minutes.

The villages of Saint Germain de Marencennes and Muron are both five minutes away where you will find bakers, general stores and bars.

The attractive market town of Surgeres with its chateau and park is 10 minutes away. Here you will find a covered market, supermarkets and a wide range of local specialist shops.

The nearest large town, a 20 minute drive, is Rochefort near the mouth of the Charente river. The town was originally built by Louis XIV as a centre of ship-building and a naval arsenal and many historical sites and buildings remain.
