The Moulin de Lusseau is in the south of the department of the Deux-Sevres in the Poitou-Charentes region of France and is just a one hour drive from either Poitiers or La Rochelle airports (both of which are served by UK low-cost carriers)
For the red wine drinkers we are two hours north of Bordeaux. If you prefer a white wine we are just two hours south of Tours and the Loire, but if (like Grahame) you prefer a brandy, the beautiful area of Cognac is just under an hour away!
Family days out at the Vallée des Singes, with its 350 plus monkeys, the Marais Poitevin, Futuroscope and the Puy de Fou are all within easy access.
From beaches, isles and theme parks the Poitou-Charentes has it all.
