Description of holiday gite in Messac, Charente-Maritime, Poitou-Charentes

Le Moulin de Malineau is situated in the South of the Charente-Maritime, the second sunniest region of France, in the heart of Cognac country.
Within easy reach of the Coast, Bordeaux, St. Emilion, Angoulême and Saintes, we are ideally placed to explore the delights of South-West France.

We have two family friendly quality Gîtes with full facilities each can accommodate up to 8 people comfortably. Matisse offers 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms dependent upon configuration, and Monet offers 3 bedrooms.

We are specifically geared for children of all ages - from babies to teenagers.

Matisse Gite can be configured as 1, 2 or 3 Bedrooms
Matisse has been carefully converted and restored from the original cognac chai storage area, giving a total living area in excess of 100m2. It features extensive exposed stone walls (‘pierre apparant’) and old and new wooden beams. A particular feature is the double height living area, giving a very light and airy feel.

The ground floor consists of an open plan living/dining/kitchen area, with a separate shower/WC room with heated towel rail. There is also a downstairs bedroom with a double bed and single bed with roll-away bed underneath (both with full size mattresses). This allows Matisse to be used as a 1 bedroom property if required.

The first floor has two bedrooms, a double and a twin, thus Matisse can also be configured for 2 or 3 bedroom usage.

The Kitchen is fully equipped with gas cooker and hob, 60/40 fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster and all the facilities one would expect.

The lounge area has satellite television, DVD, Hi-Fi and two clic-clac sofas (that can be used as sofa beds if required). There are plenty of books and games.

The dining area can comfortably seat up to 10 people.

Location description

Le Moulin de Malineau is within easy reach of a variety of attractions and facilities catering for a broad selection of tastes. From historic Chateaux and churches to beaches, water parks, zoos and vineyards.

Situated alongside the River Pimperade Le Moulin de Malineau, a typical Charentaise cream and white stone mill house, is set in extensive grounds which surround a small lake with an island.

The grounds contain apple, cherry, peach, fig and plum trees, willows, roses and many other trees and flowering shrubs.

We are surrounded by the beautiful Charentaise countryside, full of vineyards and sunflowers.

We are within easy reach of Bordeaux, Cognac and the major towns and attractions of the Charente-Maritime. We are also well located for House Hunters. We live on site and will do everything we can to ensure you have a relaxing and comfortable holiday.

The grounds are dominated by our small lake - known as an ‘etang’ - with an island. It is fully stocked with breeding Mirror Carp. The local Kingfishers and Herons take a few of the fry, but there are plenty to keep us going.

A walk around the lake is rewarding, for the plants and shrubs as well as the birds and amazing dragon flies and damsel flies that flit everywhere.

If you’re lucky you’ll see the brilliant green lizards or the resident Moorhen with her chicks. In the Spring the lake is surrounded by a host of irises and arum lillies.

We are regularly visited by the buzzards, hen-harriers and sparrow hawks. We have our resident kingfishers that flit between the lake and the stream, along with the golden orioles that hide amongst the sunflowers.

During the spring and early Summer we have hundreds of swallows, swifts and house martins circling over the lake. Not to mention all the regular garden birds and the more unusual like the hoopoe. We also have exotic mammals such as the Lesser Spotted Gennet.
