Travelling to Le Moulin de Beaumont

There are several ways to reach the mill house. You can arrive via the ferry, train or aeroplane to this beautiful part of the Charente Maritime.

The nearest airports are Bordeaux and La Rochelle, both of which are about an hour away, and Poitiers about 2 hours away.

From the ferry ports, the mill house is approximately 5-6 hours drive from St. Malo, 6-7 hours from Caen and Cherbourg and slightly further from the Channel Tunnel at 7-8 hours. 

Should you decide to take the route from the Channel Tunnel at Calais, the best route is via Boulogne, Rouen, Le Mans and Tours.  It is motorway virtually all the way and the brand new roads make the drive a pleasure, plus the fact it is quicker than the route via Paris. 

Our mill house in the Charente Maritime is conveniently situated just 15 minutes from junction 36 of the A10 autoroute.
