The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
With a climate that is not as hot as the South of France, but where temperatures regularly reach the late 30's to early 40's in the summer yet it is green. The location is generally equidistant from Bordeaux, Angouleme, Cognac and St. Emilion, being north of the Bordeaux wine region, south of the Cote du Blaye and Cote du Bourg region. Not only known for its wine, this area is close to the Gironde estuary, and many historic sights connected with the pilgrims route to St. Jacques de Compostella, with many old churches, pilgrim's hospitals, and the like. The Dune du Pyla (by Arcachon) and Palmyr Zoo are also within driving distance.
The local area is a farming community just North of the Bordeaux region and at the southern end of the Cognac region. Cercoux is a small village with a bakery which delivers to Le Moulin, two garages, a small shop and two hairdressers. Montguyon (10 minutes) has banks, a large supermarket, butchers (one of whom delivers to Le Moulin) and all other necessities for your stay.
Apart from the 90kms of cycle / walking / riding paths we are also close to stables for riding. For a local day out there are two converted quarries with swimming, sandy beaches,pedallos and cafe/bars. It is also possible to hire bikes by the week and they can be delivered to and collected from Le Moulin.
Local markets take place all round here, in Coutras, Libourne, Montendre, Riberac, Blaye and a smaller one in and Montguyon.
