Thanks all of you for a wonderful stay!

 Ouroroginal overnite went to two days of relaxation. Your home is truly a home for all. It is so quiet here and we loved the dogs. Your resident chef was terrific, as was his skills as a gardener, farmer and auto mechanic. Thank you so very very much for such a nice stay. If we come this way again we will stay here!
And we mustn’t fail to mention the two Sarah’s who made a wonderful team.
Thank you again

I’ve had a wonderful time here at Le Moulin

Fantastic hosts, brilliant food, wonderful countryside with plenty of farming and wildlife.
I’d heard a lot about Le Moulin, but the week has blown my expectations away.
Many thanks and I hope the business goes from strength to strength

What a delightful time we have had this week.

Dear Sarah, Sarah, Vince and the dogs
What a delightful time we have had this week.
Thank you for all the thoughtfulness and kindness this week. Le Moulin has magical qualities. I have benefitted hugely from the relaxed atmosphere, plentiful good food and encouragement to do what is best for the day.
Nature has surpassed herself too!
Wonderful to be here at the beginning of the autumn – still warm and sunny, with coolness for walks and many amazing things to forage including the chestnuts and walnuts.
Wishing you all the very best for the future

What a fantastic week at Le Moulin du Chemin

Thank you very much for hosting  so excellently

Sarah, Sarah, Vince, Julian, dogs and family
Thank you very much for hosting  so excellently after my rocky false start giving you the wrong time for my train arrival in Niort.  Loved the Marais, La Rochelle and Vouvant,tagging along on expeditions, and it was also a great place for solitary walking, fantastic views, wildlife and mostly friendly locals – (the sheepdog at La Cretiniere is the exception!)  Best breakfasts of any place I have stayed, best combination of OJ, muesli, peaches and croissants and a willingness to serve lunch at any time.  I now need not to eat for a few weeks.
Thanks to all and enjoy your busy season and even more the lovely dogs.
Best wishes Jen

We had an amazing time here

We came to stay a couple of days to have some rest in a beautiful place.  What we got was much more.  We instantly felt at home, like we had known each other a long time.  We were really laughing, we played, we ate delicious things, we had meaningful conversations.  We learned to love the dogs, they are the cutest!  We created memories that we will keep with us forever.

Thank you

All the food was fab.  We felt so comfortable and every expectation was surpassed.

Lovely accommodation and nothing was too much trouble.  Saw a lot of the surroundings whether this was on walks or from being driven on excursions.  Nothing was out of reach and you catered for every whim. I’ll miss you all so I’ll be back!

Last day of what has been a wonderful getaway

Last day of what has been a wonderful getaway – away from pollution, humdrum and a busy life.  Love France and Le Moulin du Chemin is a distilled version of the best France has to offer – the outdoors, cuisine and an easy pace.  Met wonderful people, heard amazing stories which I will treasure and process gradually on my return to Dublin.  A special goodbye to Marie who has been the best walking companion and halved the length of every ‘trek’ with her delightful conversation.  Thank you all.



Dublin July 28 2023

Thank you for an amazing 6 days.

Dear Sarah the Y, Sarah the O and Vince
Thank you for an amazing 6 days.  It’s been on my bucket list to visit Le Moulin for over six years and it’s exceeded all expectations.  The food, the wine, the company, your hospitality and the diverse range of daily activities all add up to an incredible experience.  The enjoyable company and laughs with you and the other guests waas the icing on the cake.  Until my next visit.

Beautiful fields of sunflowers, picturesque villages, …

What can I say…my memories of Le Moulin – beautiful fields of sunflowers, picturesque villages, a lovely boat trip on the ‘Green Venice’, Vince’s Creme Brulee… and the special dogs which were a surprise and unexpected.



Edinburgh July 30 2023

I am so relaxed now that I don’t know what day it is!

Le Moulin is a remote, very different (in a great way) place.  It’s very well decorated, all the rooms are different and we all enjoyed our sleeps.

The hosts, Sarah, Vince and Sarah took time to find out what we wanted to see, to do, to eat… with a delicious cake every day.  The food was lovely… more pounds now to be reckoned with.  The walks we did were lovely, the Marais Poitevin was a lovely experience.  Sarah Plant drove us anywhere we wanted to go… thank you.

I was also delighted to meet Julian, he also anticipated our needs before we even knew them…

Thank you

I don’t think there’s much more I can add as it’s all been said by Grace, Roisin and Kathleen.  However I would like to say a big thank you to all of you for making my return to France and its lovely countryside most enjoyable. Being a foodie I have enjoyed being waited on with lovely food, especially Vince’s delicious cakes. Starvation diet next week!

I am grateful, happy, relaxed, renewed and well rested

A much anticipated and very much enjoyed week at LMC.  I’m enjoying the fresh air, singing birds and frolicking puppies as I write this.  The delicious coffee is brewing and I’ll be off soon – so sad.  But mostly I am grateful, happy, relaxed, renewed and well rested after a wonderful stay with new friends and with so many happy memories of this beautiful part of France. Vince, Sarah, Sarah and Julian, thank you for all of the things, big and small, that you do to make your guests feel so welcome and happy.  Thank you for delicious and big vegan meals… thank you, thank you, thank you.

Sarah, Vince and Sarah have been very attentive to us over the past week.

As I am writing this I have just finished another piece of one of Vince’s wonderful cakes and he really is a fantastic cake maker and also produced beautiful meals for us every evening.

Sarah, Vince and Sarah have been very attentive to us over the past week, we ate wholesome home cooked meals, vegetables grown in their garden and enjoyed a variety of local wines.

Sarah Pllant went out of her way to explain where we could go to do some walks and brought us to some beautiful local markets and villages.  A very relaxing week.

A delight to ‘veg’ out for a week

After weeks of travelling through Europe it was such a delight to ‘veg’ out for a week, ensconced in a beautifully restored old farm and mill, enjoying walks through quiet green countryside alive with birdsong.  The walks were bookended by meals to die for, and if we had enough walking we ended our day by swimming in the sparkling blue pool.  Altogether the most relaxing time we have had in a long time.  Thanks so much


Nick Shepard


June 23 2023

What a special place this is.

We loved the birdsong: chiff chaff, chaffinch, blackcap, white throat, linnet, cirl bunting, song thrush, golden oriole, the sound of frogs and watching a kestrel dive-bomb a buzzard.  We enjoyed the comfortable airy Des Poutres and the convivial company of other guests.  Not as much walking as anticipated because of thunderstorms, but we look forward to some lively table tennis this evening before we leave.

Best of luck to Sarah, Sarah and Vince in taking on this new venture

Dear Sarah, Sarah and Vince
Thank you so much for all you did to make this a memorable and very enjoyable week. You all went out of your way to make it feel like home.
The environment is so beautiful, peaceful and nurturing. The walks (and I did 5 from the book) were a highlight for me. I especially liked Les Jincheres Loops and Les Cinq Communes.
The food was sensational. Thank you Sarah and Vince for going out of your way to provide me with vegetarian options.
Your efforts to provide individual attention to people’s needs and your willingness to be flexible were very much appreciated.
I would love to return the next time I am in France

Our second visit and we managed to spend some time around the pool which was amazing.

We had dinner the first night and I’m a picky vegan, but a meal was made especially for me and it was the best meal I have had in ages.
I felt comfortable the whole stay and we were made to feel so welcome.
We will often visit Le Moulin. Thank you for everything.

This is a home stay PAR EXCELLENCE and is very special.

Dear Sarah, Sarah, Vince and Julian

The first thought that came to mind when I read Le Moulin ramblings and its reference to Feng Shui was indeed Le Moulin du Chemin as you all, the ambience, the atmosphere, the generosity and the quality, make up all the elements Feng Shui purports to represent and more.

This is a home stay PAR EXCELLENCE and is very special. Do not change a thing!

Special mention must go to my fellow countryman, Vince, his passion for cooking that manifests itself in the quality of all the food.  He really is the best cook boy I have ever come across!

I hope to see you all next year for lots more yoga, walking and cycling.  This lace blends itself for meditation and yoga, both of which I look forward to

Many, many thanks

Un grand merci à Sarah, Sarah et Vince pour une semaine très spéciale. 

Je ne peux que répéter les superlatifs des clients précédents – une excellente cuisine, un hébergement charmant et bien sûr le soin et l’attention de l’équipe qui souhaite vraiment que vous passiez les meilleures vacances. Vous y parvenez avec des seaux et des piques.

Nous avons passé des vacances fabuleuses et découvert une partie de la France que nous pensions connaître et que nous aimons encore plus.

Nous espérons revenir si possible même si le temps n’est pas de notre côté, mais nous nous souviendrons et nous nous souviendrons et ennuyerons tous nos amis de notre séjour au Moulin du Chemin, un excellent emplacement

C’était si bon de revenir au Moulin après plusieurs années d’absence.

Il y a eu de nombreux temps forts lors de cette visite. La nourriture – surtout le sanglier bourguignon, le barbecue, le pique-nique avec des boules impromptues et sans oublier la merveilleuse campagne des Deux Sèvres et ses gens sympathiques.

Un grand merci à Sarah, Sarah et Vince pour un accueil vraiment chaleureux et aussi pour avoir organisé la location du vélo électrique (qui a certainement amélioré nos randonnées à vélo) et les massages curatifs offerts par Gemma.

La semaine est passée si vite

Nos meilleurs vœux à tout le monde au Moulin

PS Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la « Grande Finale » à la Petite Noisette, merci encore. J’attends déjà avec impatience notre prochaine visite.

Quels beaux jours nous avons passés ici avec vous. Bonne nourriture, bonne chambre avec un lit confortable et toutes les installations.
C’est un excellent emplacement et dans la partie “réelle” de la France. Nous avons aussi aimé passer du temps avec les chiens et nous les aimons tous.
Rien n’était trop demander pour vous, nous n’aurions pas pu être mieux soignés nulle part. Dave a également apprécié la piscine. Certainement les meilleurs hôtes et hôtesses de 2023 et nous reviendrons j’en suis sûr

From the minute I got into the car with Sarah, when she picked me up from the station, the magic began.

SarahSarah and Vince have a special way of making you feel like you’re old friends getting back together from the moment you meet them.  They make it look and feel effortless as they tend to every last detail.

I will always remember the table talks with Vince, listening to stories of South Africa, the great music. the friendship, the laughs and the few tears as we parted.  Oh, and of course, the “twist”.
Thank you for all those memories and more, it was peachy!
PS  If Vince asks if you want creme brulee… say yes, yes please!”

My week at Le Moulin du Chemin has been full of wonderful surprises.  

The welcome from Sarah, Sarah, Vincent and the dogs has been amazing.  My time has certainly been ‘en famille’, cozy, entertaining and kind.  Nothing has been too much.
My room was lovely, the meals were delicious, and the wine was plentiful.
The February weather has been unexpectedly sunny and warm and the walking peaceful and pastoral.  I’m so glad I came.
Thank you all so much for your company and kind attention, and for all the doggie cuddles.  I wish you all the best as you develop your ideas for Le Moulin as a Chambre d’hote retreat centre and sustainable small-holding.
Kindest regards from Sarah 3

This has been a wonderful week.

“The dogs that reside here are angels reincarnated that decided to come and have a look at the visitors!  They are so sweet. The room (Clochard) is great and Sarah, Sarah and Vince go the extra mile to please their guests.  
When I told them I was looking for some particular herbs and I couldn’t find them, they even went out and bought them for me.  The area is very beautiful with wide views and clear streams and almost no traffic.  We have seen deer, coypu, buzzards and lovely song birds.  All in all a wonderful stay for us and also for our dog who made some new friends.”

We will be sure to recommend you!

A return visit after honeymooning here in July 2009 and delighted to say very little has changed.

We love the challenging, picturesque cycling around here and having Le Moulin as our base camp. Feels like a home from home.
Vince is pack leader and fed us so many wonderful meals. More than that I enjoyed so many chats with him and hearing about all the exciting future plans at Le Moulin. Nothing is too much trouble for Le Moulin Sarah 1 and Sarah 2 and the dogs made our stay complete. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and communal meals reminded us that this is how food should be ejoyed… over several hours with good company.
We will miss the Moulin crew and will definitely be back to celebrate another anniversary

PS Raclette night was a hughlight along with all of Vince’s deserts!

We came from far away to find a beautiful place

We came from far away to find a beautiful place, small but with everything – and more – than you find at larger places.
It’s unforgettable how the Moulin family embraced us with hospitality, and accepted us as family membeers.  And they shared with us all the best they are and they know: the delicious food, lovely company, their time and their life’s experiences.  And of course their beloved dogs, really wonderful creatures.
We walked in the picturesque and tranquil countryside with all these beautiful fields, woods, rivers and lakes hearing birds and enjoying various colours and sounds…
We say farewell to you dear Sarah, Sarch, Vince, Julian, Lara, Sm and Georgia… with a warmess in our hearts.  We wish you all the best. USE DOBRO

Les “patrons”, ainsi que Shara, nous ont mis à l’aise, et autour de la cuisine du “Chef” (cuisinier) et d’un bon Fitou, nous avons conversé longuement.

The very helpful and creative book of hiking recommendations, most of them starting at the lodge.
The sensational food prepared by Vincent and his colleagues.
And the welcome into Le Moulin family – meal times gave us an opportunity to interact with Le Moulin family and their other guests, something you rarely see at guest lodges. We got to know everybody – guests, owners, staff, dogs – most unusual and well-received
Thanks to all the team at Le Moulin du Chemin for a great holiday

But we weren’t expecting what we found here

Our unplanned journey took us to Le Moulin du Chemin. We were drawn to this place by the beautiful pictures on the booking site… but we weren’t expecting what we found here. Of course the property is as beautiful as it seems – and yet still that is the less special feature of this place.
Here we got to know Vince, taste his amazing food, and enjoy his not-less-amazing conversation. Saah, always helping us to make the most of our trip and making us laugh with her witty banter. Sam and Logan, the loveliest mother and son you’ll ever meet (although they need to improve their water gun skills!). Georgia, always helpful, and always with a smile on her face. The two Kiwi Sue’s that feel like family already.
And of course the most important guests of all – Bobb, Flora and Sophie. We really had to fight our urge not to kidnap one of them and take them home with us… amazing dogs. We can’t wait to be back with our little Samuel so that he can meet everyone… and hopefully meet Flora’s babies too
Thank you so much for everything

We felt as though we were in our family house

We came expecting just a few relaxing days but we were so glad to get so much more than that.
We felt as though we were in our family house. Sarah, Vincent, Georgia and Sam were just amazing with us, they treated us as part of their family. We are literally so sad to be leaving. I will miss the dinner chats, the pool with Logan, and of course the most amazing dogs ever! I wish I could have met Flora’s puppies but hopefully next time we will see the whole family again
Thank you so much for everything

After originally booking to visit Le Moulin du Chemin two years ago, finally getting here was certainly worth the wait.

Sarah, Sarah and Vince are marvelous hosts and have made our stay so much more than we could ever have imagined. Nothing has been too much trouble for them and they ensured our week here has been something we will never forget.
The food was truly fabulous as was the wine and cocktails. Chats around the table with our hosts plus Howard and Becky were great fun.
We very much enjoyed the surrounding area – so beautiful – with a myriad of walks and activities to enjoy. We loved relaxing by the pool on our return from a day out.
You’ve made us feel at home here – we’ll miss you all, and of course we will miss the dogs.

You have a true gift in hospitality from creating ambiance for us, supplying creative and delicious vegetarian meals, to warmth, laughter and then the next morning – beauty again appears on the table. You all have a generosity of spirit, a willingness to go the extra mile and created a very special experience for us. Congratulations, Felicitations. You have pulled off a remarkable venture with grace, elegance and style. Much love and gratitude.

Great company

I have been looking forward to my stay at Le Moulin for two and a half years and it was everything I expected and more!
Great company, relaxed and welcoming ambience and truly great cooking accompanied by excellent wines.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to my wonderful break. I wish you all well in your new venture. Good luck – but I’m sure you won’t need it… your hospitality speaks for itself.

Thank you

Thank you. You provided so much for a perfect, peaceful holiday. Thank you for your generosity of spirit, laughter and hospitality.
The gorgeous pool, books, lounge chairs, maps – I couldn’t ask for more. Thank you Vince for working with our diet with such willingness and alacrity. Much love to you all.

A superb stay

Well sadly our holiday at Le Moulin has come to an end. We will miss the companionship that you (Sarah, Sarah, Vince and Becky) have shown us during our stay.
The location and comfortable rooms are superb, and we have been looked after like royalty during our stay.
We have had some very interesting cycle rides using the well-described pre-planned routes presented in the room folder.
The food and wine have been excellent and Vince has done a fantastic job with preparing all the lovely meals we have eaten during our stay.
We will miss you all but hopefully meet again in the not too distant future.

Very peaceful

What a wonderful stay we have had. Sarah, Vince, Sarah and Becky have treated us like members of the family – nothing was too much trouble and we’ve loved having the dogs here too.
It is so peaceful here, listening to the birds with no traffic.
Vince has provided us with superb meals, every meal was delicious.
Many many thanks for looking after us so well.
We have loved it and look forward to coming back in the not too distant future.
We also loved the character of the rooms – so individual – what a joy it has all been.

Un hébergement vraiment très chaleureux

Le moulin du chemin est vraiment très chaleureux. Deux jours n’étaient pas suffisants pour profiter de tout ce que cet endroit avait à nous offrir. Que se soi la piscine ou le bon petit déjeuner, nous avons passé un super séjour. Vos chiens sont aussi très amicaux, quel plaisir d’avoir été accueillis par eux ! Les chambres sont confortables et lumineuses.
Merci pour ce séjour !

Excellent meal and good week

Many thanks to Sarah, Sarah, Vince and Becky for an excellent week in a picturesque relatively remote location. Lovely food, good company and a week cycling on what I must say is fairly challenging terrain!
Sarah and Vince and Sarah have been really helpful with a minor crisis caused by Easyjet who cancelled our flight. A sign of the times unfortunately.
I feel more able to battle up steep slopes on one of the centre’s bikes but fear I may well have added a few poundss as a result of the excellent meals and many beers!
This area of France is very different from Provence where my stepson lives but it’s always good to experience a new area.
Yet another experience to add to the numerous adventures I have had after 75 years on the planet.

A beautiful place, and exceptional people

What has impressed me is the way the 2 Sarah’s and Vince have gone out of their way for us. Nothing was too much trouble. We were treated like family and friends and thoroughly spoiled.
Such a beautiful spot, the birdsong is enchanting. We’ve loved everything about it. Not only were the people special, the dogs added to the friendly accepting ambience.
As for the food, my only complaint is that it was so good I ate too much and all the effort I put into burning calories by cycling was lost by the impossibility of not gorging on glorious food!
I could go on and on but I have to leave something for all the others to say. Anyway it was marvellous !

A good stay

It was an experience spending my time at this hidden gem.
Especially that during my stay I fell in love with these cute and friendly dogs.

A very pleasant welcome

Very pleasant stay, with a warm welcome for the 3 guest.

Thanks Sarah(s) and Vincent for the time and dinner.

Enjoy your new life.

See you soon.



Nice bike rides

Well I don’t know what else I can add to the comments from my Cycle Somerset colleagues except to say that I asked for an electric bike  which Sarah and Vince arranged effortlessly. And it was a super bike which meant I could float up the many hills around this area.
All our rides were lovely, each one different and enjoyable.
We have had great days out, been so well fed and watered that, despite the miles (kilometers) cycled my clothes seem to have shrunk!
Many thanks to both Sarahs and Becky with special thanks to Vince the chef for superb meals

The perfect country retreat you didn’t know you always wanted! Rich in nature, frog song by night and busy lizards by day. Great hosts and excellent red wine.

we had a short stay and it was exactly what we needed. A beautiful escape. The grounds and neighbouring lands were like a dream with meandering streams and sunny meadows. The hosts were very accomodating, so friendly and helpful. I’m a vegan and the food they made me was amazing. Great company, great food and the most beautiful surroundings. We even went for a morning dip in the pool!!
