Le Moulin de Beaumont is close to the village of Cravans, with a bar/restaurant, boulangerie to walk or cycle to and just 3kms from the town of Gemozac with its shops, supermarkets, outdoor swimming lido, tennis courts and regular Friday market. Situated on its own, with no owners on site, and set in over an acre of garden, with a secluded walled and terraced heated pool, it is a typical old stone Charentaise mill house which has been renovated to provide a light, airy place to stay. All its facilities are for the sole use of the guests and so they are not shared with anyone.With 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 ensuite shower room, open plan well equipped kitchen, sitting room with wood burning stove, TV, sofas and second sitting room with French 'day bed' for those afternoon snoozes, there is ...Le Moulin de Beaumont is close to the village of Cravans, with a bar/restaurant, boulangerie to walk or cycle to and just 3kms from the town of Gemozac with its shops, supermarkets, outdoor swimming lido, tennis courts and regular Friday market. Situated on its own, with no owners on site, and set in over an acre of garden, with a secluded walled and terraced heated pool, it is a typical old stone Charentaise mill house which has been renovated to provide a light, airy place to stay. All its facilities are for the sole use of the guests and so they are not shared with anyone.With 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 ensuite shower room, open plan well equipped kitchen, sitting room with wood burning stove, TV, sofas and second sitting room with French 'day bed' for those afternoon snoozes, there is plenty of space to enjoy the charms of this property. Situated in over two acres, and bordered by the river Beneguisse (actually, more of a stream with small waterfall), Le Moulin is surrounded by open countryside, where farmers are busy growing fruit and vegetables, along with sunflowers and vines. The garden has proved to be a wildlife haven; the gentle stream often being home to families of ducks, moorhens and coots. Kingfishers and herons are regular visitors and if you're up early enough, you may well see the deer who come to drink from the stream too. As well as being a wildlife haven, the garden provides hours of fun 'pond-dipping' for crayfish, tadpoles and small fish. All we ask is that everything caught is carefully returned to the stream or mill pond opposite the house. The moulin's interesting garden is large enough for ball games to be played, endless running around or simply finding a quiet, sheltered spot to tuck yourself away in with a good book or just your thoughts .As well as spring and summer breaks, why not try an autumn or winter break too and witness the grape harvest, Christmas markets, as well as this beautiful peaceful area. With central heating, it really is the perfect place all year round. Please contact us for further information and photos on the mill house and its surrounding area.More

Interaction with guests
The beauty of staying at Le Moulin de Beaumont is that all the facilities are for your sole use. This means that we do not live there, nor does anyone else. However, we do have managers close by who are at hand should you need them. They will also visit you during your stay to maintain the pool and garden, but will always be discreet. Please do contact them during your stay if you need to or would like any information, which we are unable to provide; we are all happy to help in order to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

About the neighbourhood
The River Charente flows through the nearby historic Roman towns of Cognac and Saintes with its amphitheatre. The brandy houses of Hennessey, Remy Martin and Martell are based at Cognac and provide guided tours of their distilleries, offering a sample or two of the amber nectar to taste or take away. The islands of Ile de Re and Ile d'Oleron, famous for their oyster beds and wildlife are also great for cycling with many cycle tracks meaning residents rarely use their cars and watersports with many picturesque whitewashed cottages to see along the way. The main port of La Flotte has a lively, family friendly quayside where you can enjoy the delicious local ice cream. La Palmyre Zoo, just beyond Royan, is a must see for adults and children alike. With a world renowned breeding programme, ...
