Fab property - Fab location - Fab everything!

  • 5 de 5

We have stayed in La Principal twice now (2008 &2009) and have amazing memories of both holidays.

The gite is a real home from home with everything you could want and incredibly well maintained.

The location of the gite is simply breathtaking and so peaceful. We took our bikes with us, although there are bikes on site you can borrow, and spent many afternoons cycling with our 2 young sons along the quiet country lanes spotting birds of prey.

The grounds are perfect for kids - cricket, badminton, table tennis, table football and of course the lovely pool. The river running through the grounds was a total hit with our boys who spent many hours with a cheap fishing rod bought at the local supermarket. We also borrowed the canoe and went on adventures along the river. The river is very shallow though and safe for children.

When we wanted to go further afield we drove to the coast about an hour away and found some fantastic beaches, particularly at St George de Didonne. Cognac is the nearest town and beautiful. Hiring a boat to go along the river there is also worth doing.

Finally, I just have to mention the owners Bob and Jane who are simply perfect hosts. If you are lucky, Bob may even let you have a drive of his tractor!

An amazing holiday and we will return. Last year we thought we would have a change and had a beach holiday in Spain. We spent the whole time reminiscing about La Principal!

Resposta do proprietário: Thankyou Kate & Alex. One of the real perks of this job is being able to see some of our holidaymakers returning for several years. We get to know most of our visitors pretty well so it's always great to welcome them back after a gap of a year (or more) and to catch up on all that's happened since we saw them last. This is particularly true with youngsters who have often grown up amazingly too - it's a sort of time-lapse friendship!

Stunning Location Beautiful Gites

  • 5 de 5

It was simply fantastic in every aspect from the location/setting which was idilic to the standard and cleanliness of the Gites. They were undoubtedly the best Gites we have ever stayed in the quality of the finish was execeptional and spotlessly clean. As Hosts Laura & Rowan were fantastic and didn't bombard you with info, rules & regulations and let us settle in at our own pace. The welcome basket was superb in particular Laura's home made chocolate brownies !!! We were very sorry to leave Moulin de Chazotte and will definitely be returning ASAP and have no hesitation in highly recommending it as a holiday destination

Blues but no blues!

  • 5 de 5

If you'd had the fabulous two holidays that we had in 2008 and 2009 the title of our review would be obvious. From the moment we arrived (in 2008) Bob and Jane were the most fantastic hosts you could wish for, and when we discovered that our stay coincided with the famous 'Blues Passion' event held in Cognac, the holiday turned into a real experience. It was so good we returned in 2009! We stayed in La Principale which is really lovely and has everything you need. Every part of the site was immaculate and well laid out. (Bob even gave us a tour of the old part of the mill - his enthusiasm is so infectious!) There's a great pool, areas to relax, even a chance to do a bit of canoeing, and lovely walks. There is lots of space for the kids to run around too. We took a couple of trips to the beach at St Georges de Didonne - a lovely place. We barbecued a lot of the time, or went into Cognac and there's a fabulous restaurant in Mesnac where they serve the most wonderful food. The Blues Festival was something else. It was organised so that you could tell who was playing where, so most nights and during the last Saturday, we saw loads of bands, and all absolutely free! (You paid to see the main acts.) Our lasting memory is of walking back to the car around midnight one night passing one of the main arenas, and hearing BB King going full blast - brilliant! We would definitely recommend the Moulin Chazotte to friends because, as we discovered, it's a place that offers everything. The owners, Bob and Jane are to be congratulated for all their hard work in helping to make our holiday something special.

Resposta do proprietário: What a great review! Thankyou so much. There are masses of things to do in this part of France during the summer and if you have a particular hobby or passion then you might find an event or two to really make your holiday extra-special. The Cognac Blues Festival each July is amazing and yet it is only one of dozens of musical festivals going on in different towns in Poitou-Charentes. What about the Classic Car tour of the ramparts at nearby Angouleme each year for veteran/vintage car buffs? What about the Tour de France? Every year we get a stage of this world-famous cycle race going on in the vicinity. All this and wonderful weather too!!

Holiday at Moulin de Chazotte Summer 2008

  • 5 de 5

Great place to spend a holiday and to make friends with fellow guests. Property very clean and well maintained.

Lot of evenings spent playing ball games on the large field. We also enjoyed the swimming pool and made good use of the bikes which were available.

Plenty of places to visit - Cognac, Royan, Saints, Ile de Re, to name but a few; make sure you visit the local distilleries!

Our eldest son's favourite moment was the tractor ride.

Will always remember the wonderful sight of the sunflowers!!

Make sure you get directions from the owners beforehand for the last part of the journey, who were always helpful and available.

Resposta do proprietário: Many thanks for your review. Ahh....the tractor rides! It appears that Hector (the tractor) is a firm favourite with not only the children but the mums and dads too. I can't promise that Hector will be out working in the grounds but, if he is, there will be tractor driving lessons for young and old alike at some point. With 11 acres of "estate" to maintain there is usually some work for the tractor to do around the place and before now I've been helped with the chore of mowing the 7 acre playfield by enthusiastic newly-trained holiday tractor drivers!

La Principal, Moulin de Chazotte

  • 5 de 5

We stayed in the Principal which was beautifully decorated and furnished and far exceeded our expectations. The property was clean and well maintained. Bob and Jane were excellent hosts. They organised a barbecue at the beginning of our stay, allowing us to get to know other guests. They were also available to answer any questions or offer advice. We enjoyed rowing upstream in their canoe, playing table tennis and table football in the barn and swimming in the pool. We also borrowed bikes to cycle around the lanes locally. The mill is set in beautiful surroundings and is probably one of the most peaceful places we've visited. However Cognac is only a short drive away for supermarkets, shopping and attractions. We visited with our three children the youngest was ten and the oldest fifteen. We also stayed in Paris and the Loire during our holiday, but our stay in the Moulin de Chazotte was their favourite part of our visit. I would have no hesitation in recommending the mill to friends or family.

Resposta do proprietário: Many thanks for your kind comments. Some of our guests stay with us for one rather than two weeks because they are slightly doubtful that there will be enough to do at one site, especially for youngsters. Others plan ahead with a detailed week of excursions to keep everyone busy. Our advice, based on five years of welcoming holidaymakers is that wherever you decide to stay, if your budget will allow, stay there for two weeks. A two week holiday allows everyone to really unwind properly yet gives you plenty of time for trips to the seaside or markets or whatever takes your fancy. We're fortunate enough to have folks coming back on two or three sucessive years and still not running out of interesting (or relaxing!) things to do!
