“The most fantastic place to stay, a unique experience”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here for a week in July with our 2 children, 5 YO and 7YO. We LOVED it. Just to wake up surrounded by water with the tide rushing out from beneath the lounge was incredible. Isabelle was very friendly and welcoming. The Gite is beautiful and very well equipped. It is a converted mill and very unique. We spent evenings on the terrace watching the water and all the wildlife, so relaxing! The location is perfect overlooking a small oyster fishing port, great for strolls looking for crabs and fish. Also perfect for exploring the Royan area but being away from the crowds.
I would not recommend for kids who cannot go down stairs safely by themselves. The Gite is up stairs and the terrace for eating is down.
A very memorable holiday is a lovely area in perfect accommodation. THANK YOU.

“We loved it”
Reviewed 15 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a great, peaceful place to stay. We loved the apartment, comfortable, spacious and well equipped to a high standard. The mill is in a great location, fantastic views of the marshes, birdlife and the ever changing tides was a highlight for us. Isabelle & Jean were perfect hosts, a warm welcome with good tips and maps on the local area. Don't miss the oysters, walks along the unspoilt coastline & marshes, and a quick evening game of ping pong.

“A stunning location, we would have stayed all summer...”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We love the Charente Maritime, and in particular the presqu'ile d'Arvert, with its fantastic array of beaches on the Atlantic coast and the bustling oyster industry all down the Seudre. Chartressac is located in the oyster beds and Le Moulin gives amazing views over the beds and out to the Seudre. the gite itself is beautifully appointed and M et Mme Elias are always on hand to offer advice if needed.

We have been staying in gites in France for 30 years and without a doubt this is the best property we have ever stayed in. The accommodation is first class with good furniture and an excellent pool.The owners are the nicest people you would wish to meet. The property is perfectly situated with a bar and small supermarket 2 minutes one way and a cabane serving fresh oysters and seafood two minutes in another direction.It was a pleasure to sit in the evening with a glass of wine watching the river estuary rise and fall with the tides.One thing to point out is that the accommodation is on the first floor so you need to be able to climb 13 stairs to get in or out.
