Cravans, Charente-Maritime, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Le Moulin de Beaumont is close to the village of Cravans, with a bar/restaurant, boulangerie to walk or cycle to and just 3kms from the town of Gemozac with its shops, supermarkets, outdoor swimming lido, tennis courts and regular Friday market.

Interaction with guests
The beauty of staying at Le Moulin de Beaumont is that all the facilities are for your sole use. This means that we do not live there, nor does anyone else. However, we do have managers close by who are at hand should you need them. They will also visit you during your stay to maintain the pool and garden, but will always be discreet. Please do contact them during your stay if you need to or would like any information, which we are unable to provide; we are all happy to help in order to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

About the neighbourhood
The River Charente flows through the nearby historic Roman towns of Cognac and Saintes with its amphitheatre. The brandy houses of Hennessey, Remy Martin and Martell are based at Cognac and provide guided tours of their distilleries, offering a sample or two of the amber nectar to taste or take away.

The islands of Ile de Re and Ile d'Oleron, famous for their oyster beds and wildlife are also great for cycling with many cycle tracks meaning residents rarely use their cars and watersports with many picturesque whitewashed cottages to see along the way. The main port of La Flotte has a lively, family friendly quayside where you can enjoy the delicious local ice cream.

La Palmyre Zoo, just beyond Royan, is a must see for adults and children alike. With a world renowned breeding program...
