Bienvenue. Welcome to Le Petit Moulin

Sara and ​Simon would like to welcome you to Le Petit Moulin, their beautiful French chambre d’hote with self-catering gites. This delightful property is situated in the Deux-Sèvres department, 10 minutes from the main N10 Poitiers to Bordeaux route. It’s also close to the historic port of La Rochelle, and under an hour to the amazing Futuroscope park in Poitiers. Because of its close proximity to the French Atlantic Coast, this area is extremely popular with visitors from across Europe.

Located in the picturesque village of Sainte Soline, Le Petit Moulin is a 5 minute drive from the popular market town of Lezay. Every Tuesday the town is buzzing with locals and visitors attending the farmer’s market, and Lezay’s is one of the largest in the area. For visitors, the markets are probably one of the most authentic French experiences you could ever find. Typical French outdoor markets are a mix between a farmers’ market and a traders’ market. So as well as stalls offering local produce straight from the farm, you can also buy fresh bread, wine, dried fruits, and cheese.

Relax and unwind

During the summer, the fields surrounding Le Petit Moulin are ablaze with sunflowers. But it is the peace and tranquillity here that provides a wonderful respite from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Le Petit Moulin is the perfect place to relax, unwind and recharge your batteries.
