Mill house in Charente Maritime - Chez Moulin

Welcome to Chez Moulin de Beaumont's Guest Book

We'd like to thank all our guests for the comments they make in the guest book, the letters and emails they send us, along with the reviews they leave.  Here is a chance to share some of them and bring a visit to the mill house, Le Moulin de Beaumont, to life.

"We had a wonderful holiday at your beautiful house. We have stayed in many holiday properties but have never seen one so well-presented inside and out. And the garden is just fabulous. We spent hours playing boule and laying under the trees on sunbeds, reading. We re-visited some favourites - Rochelle, Cognac, Saintes, and shopped in Royan - such an attractive town. All in all a truly memorable holiday and so relaxing - just what we wanted. We hope that your lovely home from home will continue to provide outstanding holiday memories for visitors for years to come."

Philip and Liz

"Well worth the 2 day drive! Photos didn't really do it justice - we immediately felt at home. Such a peaceful place.  Whether it's a swim in the pool, watching the hoopoes on the lawn, photographing the dragonflies by the bridge or watching the sun go down with a cold beer, it's all here. Morning cycle ride for bread and crossaints set the scene for the day. We wanted a quiet, relaxing holiday which could provide plenty to do and see if we so wished - this did it! Memorable."

Kath & Vin

"We had a lovely holiday and all loved your house. The 2 weeks just flew by with lots of good memories to take us through the winter. Thank you also for the welcome basket and card, it was very kind. During our stay the weather was generally very good with a few days getting right up to the mid-thirties. The thunder and lightening was, however, like something from a Hollywood movie! We had some interesting visitors at the moulin - deer grazed outside the property, birds of prey regularly flew over head, loads of insects, birds, butterflies and my boys loved watching the little bats fly overhead towards the trees at dusk. We loved our whole experience and got to see lots of little towns, beaches and visited the zoo too."

Wilsdon family

"Thanks Siân and Richard for providing such a beautiful and tranquil hideaway for our holiday! Surmounted, surpassed, exceeded all expectations - we were truly happy for our week here. Our 2 and 4 year olds loved the Zoo at Palmyre - feeding popcorn to the giraffes - a surreal and joyous experience!
Otherwise we just swam, barbequed, played boules and cricket and simply ran around the garden endlessly. I am sure some happy childhood memories were created here for our children. We really hope to return. Many thanks."

Glossop Family

"We've had a really perfect holiday here.  The house, garden and particularly the pool have been so lovely and have really created a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere for us. We were thrilled when we got here as it is actually much nicer than it looks on the website.  We feel sad to be leaving and will return as soon as we can."

Ryan family

"We had a fab time at the house and hired extra bikes from the company you recommended who were brilliant. Really got to know the local area. Kids discovered they love oysters which were plentiful and cheap! Lots of wildlife for my son to enjoy and relaxing places for my daughter and husband. All in all something for everyone."

Paula and family

"We've had a really enjoyable and relaxing time at the moulin, which we found well furnished and exceptionally clean.  The visitor's book and Moulin information book were really useful for restaurants and advice - thank you.  Beaches around this area, especially the Grand Cote, are beautiful and we will be very sad to leave this beautiful house and area."

Carol, Keith & Hannah

"We have really enjoyed our stay here. The weather has been fantastic with the pool giving welcome respite on the very hot days. We loved the house, especially the big room downstairs and felt very much at home. The 'book' has given us plenty of ideas for trips out and good pointers for restaurants. Would definitely recommend to others."

Terri and Vernon

"We had a wonderful week in the gite, which was perfect inside and out.  The welcome pack was the best we found and the property is light. We managed to catch many crayfish which we dutifully returned to the stream, as it seemed churlish to eat them once the children had ascribed them both names and personalities!"

Woodford Family

"Our first trip to Le Moulin and all we can say is FANTASTIC!  The setting is so peaceful.  Our teenage boys went fishing and enjoyed the catch of the day on the barbeque in the evenings.  A perfect getaway from the rat race."

Eldridge and Edwards Families

"Location is excellent.  We dragged ourselves away from the pool to make various trips - highlights were La Rochelle and Saintes. Sad to be leaving but we will definitely be back.  Exactly what a holiday should be."

Frost family

"We have had a magical holiday at Chez Moulin.  The charms of the house, garden, pool and local area have kept us all busy and happy.  Thanks for sharing this beautiful spot with us."

Noble Family

"Although we stayed in one of the coldest winters, Le Moulin de Beaumont was as warm as toast! Highly recommended. We will definitely return."

Jonathan & Sue

"We have visited the area on many occasions and can say that this is definitely the best house we have ever been in.  The peaceful country setting has ensured a very relaxing, tranquil 3 weeks."

Irene and Alan

"We have ALL enjoyed our visit to Chez Moulin - it is truly a beautiful house in an excellent location.  We have managed to visit a few new venues this year, plus re-visited old favourites (the Zoo)!!  We look forward to coming again." 

Best Family

"Thank you for all the thought you have put into this house as a holiday let.  We especially appreciated all the info in the folder."

Chris & Roger

"After many years of searching for the perfect gîte that provides good facilities, privacy,  a lovely pool and excellent flat cycling, we have finally found it.  Thank you for providing us with such a lovely holiday home.  Sorry for all the questions, but it was worth it - this was our sixth gîte and the first one we have booked for a second visit."

Lorrie & Phil

"Twenty three years of visiting/travelling through France and 12 years of staying in gîtes of which this is tops.  Brilliant holiday in the most relaxing location. Wonderful facilities - everything we needed. Looking forward to a return visit."
