The Moulin Chaillou and its gites/cottages are located on the banks of the River Seugne, in the centre of the beautiful medieval town of Pons in the Charente Maritime. It is a calm and peaceful river fronted property but within 25 minutes of the south west coast of France, and 20 minutes from Saintes and Cognac. The property boasts 7 small islands, private access & only 5 minutes walk from the centre of town. We are family friendly, & offer a wide range of toys, games,& baby/child equipment.

The space

Our watermill and gites are situated on the largest of 7 small private interconnecting islands on the River Seugne. Each gite/cottage is private and self contained with private decking/entrance and parking.

Guest access

All the islands are private and easily accessible, providing picturesque river walks and a 3 minute stroll to a wonderful bakery, under a shaded fig tree, across an ancient stone bridge. There is a spacious hangar with gym, basketball, washing machine, large box freezer and drier, bicycles and beach equipment.

Interaction with guests

We are always happy to help with any queries or tourist information. Many of our previous gite guests are now frequent visitors and we are very relaxed and sociable people, happy to help and be on hand.

Louise was a great host and very friendly. She even had breakfast items available for us to eat. The sound of the running stream next to the property is so relaxing to your ears. I will be visiting this property again on our next visit to Cognac.
