Le Moulin de Chazotte – Le Hibou - From €540 - €980 per Week
This beautiful 15th century converted French watermill offers beautiful, family friendly self- catering holiday accommodation in the Charente. The four exclusive gites are brimming with charm and character whilst offering all the modern comforts and facilities to ensure you have a relaxing and rewarding holiday.
La Maison de Hibou, translated as “The Owl House” and so named after the magnificent barn owl which was found roosting in the roof beams during the renovation. Split over two floors and with two bedrooms this gite can comfortably accommodate four people.
Le Hibou forms half of the grand, main building which was built in the mid 1890s and adjoins La Principale. This charming gite has many original architectural features, including traditional Charentais roof beams and beautiful exposed stonework. From the master bedroom you look out over the vineyards and from the rear windows, watch the river and its wildlife flow by.

Le Moulin de Chazotte is nestled amongst the vineyards and sunflower fields of Cognac country. The mill sits astride the river Chazotte, which was once used to power the mill on the site. With 12 acres of land mixed between woodland, fields and gardens, the mill is blissfully remote with the only other inhabitants being other guests and the local wildlife – from occasional deer and wild boar to the many birds of prey circling the blue skies above.
If you wish for a bit more action during your holiday, the nearest village, Cherves-Richemont, is just a short drive away (2 km) and offers a local bakers, butchers, pharmacy and restaurant.
A little further afield (7km / 10 mins drive) is the historic town of Cognac.
The surrounding towns of Angoulême, Saintes and St. Jean d’Angély are steeped in Roman and Medieval history with fascinating architecture and bustling markets.
The beautiful French seaside towns of La Rochelle, Ile de Re and Royan are close by offering a great day out at the seaside with family-friendly sandy beaches.
The famous vineyards of Bordeaux are also well worth a visit and only an hour’s drive.
The owners live on-site at the Mill so are there to help with any questions, advice or recommendations during your stay.
In addition to Le Hibou, we also have three other gites on-site of varying sizes or you can even rent the whole house exclusively for up to 20 people. Find out more by visiting the website www.moulindechazotte.com, or contact us directly using the contact form to the right.
