In the heart of the French countryside, stay in large beautifully renovated XIXth century country house. Surrounded by woodland and the river Anglin, you can enjoy beautiful walks, fishing and cycling or just lie by the pool during the day; have a barbecue while sipping wine from the region in the evening and fall asleep to the sound of the crickets and river at night. Close to the Chateaux of the Loire and the Futuroscope theme park, you can also make your stay a cultural one. The pool is available for use from beginning of May to end of September.

The Willow Cottage at Le Moulin Ségère is a beautiful house and Madame Claudine is more than helpful and had all the local knowledge of of the area . The house had everything just as if you were at home. There was a lovely welcome bottle of wine on arrival and a few bits in the fridge which was a nice surprise The kids loved the swimming pool and had a river nearby . I would definitely recommend this accomodation .

Thank you very much to you and your family for staying at Willow Cottage. In spite of the surprisingly poor weather for the season, you put a brave face on it all. Really enjoyed our chats in English and in French! I hope you welcome you all at the Moulin de Segere again soon.

L'endroit est calme, idéal pour les familles, avec une magnifique piscine , une belle terrasse, avec deux poêles à bois que nous avons fait fonctionner le soir pour dîner ! Excellent acceuil de madame Scott. C'est appréciable de trouver , une bouteille , confiture, lait, beurre, œufs, gâteaux!!!! Nous n'avons pas profiter de la piscine tous les jours à cause de la météo !!! Je recommande cet endroit, et j'y retournerai !!!!

The gite was situated in the countryside, 10 minutes from supermarkets and all amenities in the small town of Le Blanc. There was a very well-managed completely fenced swimming pool for the sole use of the gite and a rowing boat was provided for use in the shallow River Anglin running alongside the property. Bicycles were also provided. The gite was very well equipped and easy to manage for a family of 4 adults and 3 children. Sitting out on the large terrace at night was a delight, especially at the time of the meteor shower, when the lack of light pollution provided a beautiful dark sky. The children were fascinated by the robot which automatically cleaned the swimming pool every night. We would strongly recommend a trip to Chauvigny for a ride on the VeloRail - a great experience for all the family. The chateau museum in Le Blanc is well worth a visit. All in all, we had a wonderful two weeks in this gite and regretted having to leave for a further week in a different gite. We can't finish this review without describing the star of the show - Madame Claudine - who was so kind to us all and understanding of our every need, even providing us with a very welcome "welcome pack" including a lovely bottle of wine. Madame Claudine speaks perfect English and was very gentle with helping us with our very modest French. We definitely wish to return again to enjoy every aspect of this great gite.

Amazing location, with beautiful countryside views. The accommodation had everything we needed and more, the pool was perfect as where the grounds the house was set in. Claudine was a fantastic hostess and very knowledgable about the local area, she can’t do enough for you and provided everything we needed including a lovely welcome pack, plus bread and pastries for the morning after we arrived. The area is rural, but we found this perfect and it adds to the charm. We had such a lovely time we are hoping to book again next year.

Ondanks een probleem met de wi fi, heeft Claudine er echt alles aan gedaan om ons verblijf perfect te maken. Heerlijk rustige omgeving, prachtige natuur, lekker zwembad. Jammer dat het zout water is en dat er pas vanaf ca 16.00 uur wat schaduw op het zwembad valt. De bedden waren helaas wat aan de kleine kant.

This is the third time my family and I have visited this beautiful property and it’s lovely surroundings. The house is lovely and the pool for both children and adults amazing especially as the region is hot, 30+ degrees every year we have visited. The house is set in some amazing grounds with a pasture at the rear and the river d’anglin at the side of the property making for a tranquil and relaxing stay. In addition, the town of Le Blanc is only 5k away and you can find everything you need there including supermarkets, bars, restaurants and a lovely outdoor market. The owner of the property - Mrs Scott is fantastic and incredibly welcoming. Mrs Scott has so much knowledge and advice about the area and is so hospitable which adds to the amazing stay. This property is a must, no wonder we have been back x3 times in the past x6 years. We will definitely be back! Thank you Mrs Scott for a lovely holiday once again.

Nice pool, good and clean house and peaceful place for staying. Mrs Claudine is very polite, helpful and charming lady. She is living on the property, so the help is near, if you need it. Sun is shining to the pool from morning to 4 p.m. There is lot of big trees and small river with own small island and lawns to walk. Le Blanc is nice small town only 10 minutes by car. Thanks Claudine, including those of fine pastries!

We recently stayed 14 days in the lovely Willow Cottage and we had a wonderful time. When we arrived we were greeted by mrs Claudine Scott (the owner) . She is very hospitable and always prepared to help you if you want so. The cottage is very well equipped and the scenery is really wonderful. We loved our stay and we hope to come back in the future.

We had the most wonderful stay at Willow Cottage. It is situated next to a pretty river. We even had the opportunity to go on a rowing boat. The owner Claudine was just wonderful and extremely hospitable. She made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and even was kind enough to get lovely fresh pastries for our first breakfast. The house is lovely and extremely clean and well kept. We will visit again!

About the neighbourhood
The region can cater for a variety of tastes but prides itself on its natural beauty. The Moulin de Segere is located inside the Natural Park of the Brenne, also called the Park of the 1000 ponds, that has diverse wildlife and unspoilt beauty. We also recommend you visit the beautiful city of Chauvigny or Angles-sur-l'Anglin and its beautiful ruins. The region is close to the Chateaux of the Loire and the Futuroscope theme park if you want a nice daytrip.
Getting around
The best way to get around and visit the region is either by car or by bicycle. We would be happy to lend you a bicycle during your stay.
