Set in its own beautiful and secluded grounds, The Millhouse provides exceptional accommodation in the heart of the Charente Maritime countryside. The relaxing surroundings combine with the charm of this historic mill to provide you with the perfect way to unwind.

The home has ten ensuite bedrooms in total, Wi-Fi throughout and beautiful grounds featuring a stream and rivers, landscaped gardens and wild flowers. There are nine bedrooms in the main house, one including a sofa-bed, available for 18-20 guests whilst a self-contained one-bedroom apartment with a sofa-bed in the lounge sleeps a further 2-4 guests, bringing the total capacity to 20-24 guests. 

Memorable evenings can be spent in the beautifully lit dining room where you can gaze at the cleverly designed glass feature overlooking the stream running through the room towards the waterwheel. In the summer, head outside and relax by the poolside cabana, enjoy meals together by the stone-built barbecue or prepare pizzas in the traditional bread oven.

Families are made to feel especially welcome with a wealth of facilities from board games by the cosy fire to table tennis and football, not to mention the lovely children’s play area outside. Then of course there is the glorious heated swimming pool with its own kids corner and ample space for grown-ups to relax on the poolside terrace.

Close to the historic towns of Saintes, Cognac, Taillebourg and St Jean D'Angely, the Millhouse is in a wonderful location. It’s only forty minutes from the coast where you’ll discover wonderful sandy beaches and a strong sense of the region’s maritime history. Nearby you can also visit beautiful vineyards and market towns selling local fresh produce and seafood. The Charente Maritime region has an exceptionally sunny climate and is a wonderful area to visit.

The Millhouse, which was voted one of the 25 best villas in Europe by Conde Nast, is the perfect venue for your holiday and the enthusiastic owners will be at hand to help you have a memorable stay.

Close to the historic towns of Saintes, Cognac, Taillebourg, St Jean D'Angely and only 40 minutes from lovely beaches in the area, the Millhouse is in a wonderful location. There is easy access to Angoulême, the capital of the Charente, the major train stations, international airports, and only 4 hours from St Malo ferry port.

The Charente Maritime region is exceptionally sunny, and has its own micro climate as a result of the Azores' anticyclone, making for mild springs and pleasant autumns. Along its 470 kilometers of coastline, the Charente Maritime has around 110 beautiful sandy beaches. Needless to say, seafood is a speciality here. It is steeped in culture and history and boasts 500 years of Maritime history from the imposing outline of Fort Boyard to the stocky coastal fortifications of La Rochelle. Inland and around the area it boasts over 400 stunning Romanesque churches. It is a place where the land meets the sea and is reflected in the beautiful shades of the wooden shutters adorning the honey coloured sandstone houses.

The house sits among the farms and vineyards that produce the famous Pineau Charente aperitif grapes which produce a sweet wine and is located approximately 14 kilometers from the main Saintonge city of Saintes (saintonge means saintes area). Saintes was originally a roman town situated on the banks of the Charente river. At most times during the year there are various festivals and markets selling local produce, fresh fish, seafood,poultry, fruit and vegetables.

The nearest major airport would be Bordeaux (Merignac Airport) which is about 1-1/2 hrs drive away.  La Rochelle a slightly smaller airport is located 45 minutes drive away and there are many budget airlines flying from the UK to La Rochelle.
Paris is about 4-1/2 hours drive from the mill.  The mill is also accessible via TGV trains from Paris and the nearest station is Saintes or St Jean D'Angely. Both towns are about 15 - 20 minutes drive away.

This is a great area for kids with plenty of activities across the region. There is a playground by the river in nearby Saint-Jean-d'Angély, about twenty minutes away, as well as horse-riding just a short drive away and some lovely footpaths and trails to follow for keen walkers or cyclists in the family.

Explore fairy-tale châteaux such as Chateau de la Roche Courbon with its prehistoric caves whilst comic-lovers will enjoy the excellent National Comic Strip and Image Centre in Angoulême, just over an hour away.

There are beaches within an hour along the Atlantic coast, some fantastic spots can be found along the Côté Sauvage, popular with surfers. More family-friendly beaches can be found at Royan, a delightful seaside resort home to the Planet Exotica animal park, a go-karting circuit and a charming harbour.

A family day out on Île d’Oléron is also a must, connected to the mainland via a bridge. With nature reserves, forests and huge sandy beaches, it’s fantastic for walking, cycling, horse-riding or simply building sandcastles.

  • We recommend to all!

    on 16/07/2019

    I believe our vacation at The Millhouse will always remain one of the most memorable in my family history. Why? It had everything: comfortable bedrooms, a kitchen that could handle our hungry group of 17, and our own pool. We played Wii, ping pong, tetherball, drank wine, cooked out on the grill, and took long walks past corn and wildflower fields and fun day trips. We had a delicious meal that your own chef cooked. From 5 months to 70 years in age, we were all happy! Thank you for your hospitality and spotless historic Millhouse. We recommend The Millhouse to all!

  • Perfect relaxation in a beautiful house & gardens

    on 20/04/2017

    Spent a week staying at The Millhouse in celebrating two 60th birthdays within our family group of 14. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who even opened the outdoor pool early for us as we were lucky enough to have fabulous, warm spring weather! All bedrooms very comfortable & there is masses of space to spend time relaxing throughout the house and garden. We hired bikes for 5 days and the local cycling is leisurely and on very quiet roads. The highlight of the week was being catered for by local chef Sebastien's team on two separate evenings in the very large dining room - pure luxury!

  • Stunning house with friendly, helpful owners, great pool

    on 18/04/2017

    Brilliant holiday with extended family aged 2-64 years. The Millhouse is a beautiful, comfortable house with plenty of space and lots of places to relax, eat and drink both inside and outside. Lovely pool. The owner helped for several months before we arrived with wonderful recommendations and bookings - loved the pain au raisins from Taillebourg, Le Scorlion in St Jean d'Angely, The Garden Ice Café and Clos de Cors in Saintes. Enjoyed the daily arrival of the boulangerie van bringing breakfast - and had 2 fantastic catered meals from Sebastien's team (again all sorted with Manisiah's help). Would love to visit again!

  • Thank you so much for being so attentive

    on 29/01/2014

    Where do we start ! Our holiday has been fantastic from the minute we got to the Millhouse. Manisiah and Steve have been wonderful.
    Our wedding was perfect and we couldn’t have found a more perfect setting. We couldn’t have done it without you. The house and grounds are beautiful, it definitely feels like home – we’re so sad to be leaving !

  • We recommend The Millhouse 100%

    on 29/01/2014

    Thank you so much for making our daughter’s Wedding dreams come true. I must say we were completely nervous knowing she had booked a Wedding overseas and without seeing the venue, however can honestly say that the day was flawless and we would recommend you 100% to any couple wanting to tie the knot with you.
    You were completely professional throughout their stay, extremely knowledgeable and are a real true asset to the Wedding business. Both Otto and I wish you the very best for your future.

  • We are looking forward to our next trip already !

    on 29/01/2014

    Stuart & I had our wedding blessing at the Millhouse and we had a wonderful day & holiday. Attention to detail was fantastic and everything we could think of was available. Manisiah, Steve and Jenny were a great help in organising our blessing, liaising with suppliers and even decorating the mill & grounds. Thank you so much for your help, fantastic facilities and ‘can dp’ attitude !

  • We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

    on 29/01/2014

    When we decided to hold our Wedding here with you all at the Millhouse, never did we believe the wedding would be so perfect, from the reception we all received on arrival, the personal touches, the catering, flowers, entertainment and the lovely celebrant we can honestly say we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
    The venue, Steve and Manisiah as the owners and Jenny as the Wedding planner ensuring that we had the best suppliers available you all really pulled out all the stops to ensure everything was magical.
    We are so appreciative you managed to get a supplier to erect a Mandap and the Indian feast we had was one of the best we have savoured – all these in France !
    We shall cherish our stay with you all forever and hope dearly one day that we shall meet again.

  • All our guests want to come back !!

    on 29/01/2014

    Where do we begin? The venue is just gorgeous, everything we had hoped for and far, far more !
    Steve & Manisiah you have gone above and beyond and this special occasion would not have been possible without you.
    Everyone has complimented both yourselves and the house and grounds. We will never forget this truly magical occasion. Look forward to returning !!

  • Great attention to detail

    on 29/01/2014

    Our heartfelt thanks to you all for making our Wedding day perfect. Having spent weeks searching for the right venue you really did pull out all the stops to ensure that we had the best day imaginable and we can’t thank you enough to this.
    The attention to detail in the millhouse is first class, the hospitality we received was superb and not only did this make our Wedding stay extra special but every single one of our 90 guests wished they could have stayed longer.
    We will be back, there’s no doubt about it and really look forward to seeing you all again.
    Much love

  • The dream wedding

    on 29/01/2014

    Both Lee and I want to thank you so much once again for everything you have done for us to make our dream Wedding come true. Many of the guests have already told us that this was by far the very best Wedding they had ever attended and I can truly say this has been down to you for making everything run so smoothly on the day.
    I must apologise for being such a bridezilla, yet you seemed to take everything in your stride, even my panic phone call to you at midnight two nights before we arrived.
    Jenny you were without a shadow of a doubt the best wedding planner we could have ever picked and words can’t express our heart felt thanks enough to you.
    Please do stay in touch with us and we promise to send you a post card from Bali.
    Loads of love

  • We would love to come back

    on 29/01/2014

    A massive thank you to you all for such a wonderful Wedding we had. We were overwhelmed by the luxury of the Millhouse and how you all made our day simply perfect. Our Wedding superseded any expectation we had and can’t thank you all enough. You all really gave us a 5* Wedding and we are so happy we chose to have our Wedding there with you. The food was exquisite, the music was perfect and the attention to detail throughout our stay – well what can we say. Thank you all so much and we would love to come back for an anniversary holiday in the very near future.

    Wendy and I can’t thank you all enough for such an amazing Wedding. The professionalism, the luxury and the warm approach from you all really made our Wedding at the Millhouse extra special.
    The Wedding planning service was exceptional, nothing was missed and even though I am the most stressful person imaginable, Jenny made certain that the entire Wedding was stress free for us all and really pulled out all the stops to make our day magical. How on earth you manage to get a dragon dance organised for us is unbelievable ! Thank you all so much and thank you also to the suppliers who again were perfect.

  • You are worth your weight in gold thank you!

    on 29/01/2014

    I wanted to take a moment to drop you a short note to express once again our genuine and heartfelt thanks for everything you personally did to make the event an immense success. Your combination of professionalism, organisational prowess, 'can do' approach and personal warmth went a long way towards making the entire project enjoyable and that bit easier to manage.
    When we arrived, you very much came into your own (not to mention all the pre-arrival work you undertook) and nothing seemed too much trouble from the important stuff (timing of the ceremony, making guests feel welcome, etc) to the mundane (My inability to open plugholes in baths without adult supervision springs to mind). We both came away feeling that you are worth your weight in gold.
    I feel we should take you up on your offer to stop in for a coffee or a glass of wine when we are next in the region.
    With a project as complex and as emotionally charged as a wedding, you personally delivered a flawless result for us and we are very grateful that you gave up that high paid job in Britain and chose to run a well-hidden (and very beautiful) wedding venue deep in the breathtaking French countryside. Until we meet again, best wishes to you for the future.

  • Best Wedding imaginable

    on 29/01/2014

    Back to earth with a bump from what can only be described as the best Wedding imaginable. Our daughter and son in law were overwhelmed with everything you did for them.
    Thank you all so so much for such a memorable stay. You should all be so proud of what you have achieved and the Millhouse really is a hidden gem.
    Luxurious goes without saying, even to all the fine details and you should really promote your Weddings as nothing short of 5* luxury.
    Continue the superb work and wishing you many many years of undoubted success.
    Best regards
    Christine and Robert / Parents of Bride and Groom

  • A truly amazing venue !

    on 29/01/2014

    Thank you Jen, Manisiah & Steve. You gave us the most memorable wedding day with such a beautiful backdrop. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrive to the day we say our goodbyes. Ever so supportive and nothing was too small for us to request. You are the best and we could not ask for more. Thank you, Thank you and Thank you again !

  • Fairy tale wedding

    on 29/01/2014

    Thank you so much for making our day the most wonderful day of our lives, it was perfect, just like a fairy tale…. Not only that, you made our whole stay at the Millhouse perfect. Right from the start you were all so helpful. I didn’t even know where to begin planning a wedding, maybe that’s why I kept putting it off but Jenny made me feel at ease throughout! Even from early Skype conversations, where you asked me what kind of wedding I had in mind, slowly piece by piece it came together. With your experience and knowledge, I discovered what was right for us and what wasn’t.
    We wanted a smallish wedding with just 50 people but there was a part of me that was worried that I would regret that decision. That it would feel a little less special or spectacular, that it would miss the magic and ambiance that I wanted it to have. I need not have worried, the day had it all and more.
    On the big day, we did not have a single problem. You ensured it ran smoothly and was stress free for us. My maid of honour was shocked at how relaxed I actually was! Everything was perfect, down to the smallest details. When we had a question you were there to answer it…. I cannot praise you all enough!!!
    Our main advantage was not to have all of the guests on site with us, this made the whole experience even more personable and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get married – keep the Mill for just immediate family and friends.
    Thank you all so much! I cannot praise and thank you the three of you enough….We wouldn’t change a single thing!!!
    I wish you all every success for your future, as I am sure that you will make hundreds more brides the happiest in the world!!
    Very best wishes,

  • Such an amazing place!

    on 29/01/2014

    Thank you very much for having us this weekend. You have all been fantastic. We were given such a warm welcome being collected at the airport. The Millhouse is such an amazing place we are both so glad we chose there to get married and between the 3 of you we couldn’t ask for anything more. We are super excited about April next year and can’t wait to see you guys again.
    Once again Thank You, all our love Vikki and Martin

  • Memorable Christmas

    on 22/07/2010

    More than a luxurious manor house, we were hoping for a space where a family of 15 aged from 3- 73 could relax individually as well as come together as a family. The Millhouse enabled us to do all of that. The amenities are comprehensive and luxurious but the design and configuration of the space means a large and diverse group can relax and celebrate together. However the defining difference between The Millhouse and other places we have stayed is the passion and competence and hospitality of Steve and Manisiah. Thank you Manisiah and Steve and of course The Millhouse for a memorable Christmas.

  • An absolutely fantastic house
