A home from home... 

Set in the beautiful countryside of the Pays de la Loire in France, Le Moulin de la Quentiniere comprises three properties - Le Moulin with its huge bedroom suites and spacious bathrooms; La Petite Maison, a traditional 5 bedroom property with pretty interior and Le Petit Gite, with its cosy 2 bedrooms. The site is complemented by a fantastic leisure complex (shared between our 3 properties), complete with indoor heated swimming pool, gymnasium and games room. 

Yearly Planner 

Easter goodies 

With the long weekend meaning that you have 'free' extra days to spend with your friends and family, come and enjoy an Easter egg hunt with the children, a game of boules on our terrain or fire up the bbq, the choice is yours. 

Come and herald May Day 

The beginning of the month of May conjures up images of delicate lilies and baby lambs, signs of the beginning of spring. Our little area in France is a wonderful place to experiene Mother Nature at her finest; breathing in the crisp air while you enjoy the beautiful countryside walks, the crystal waters of our many lakes and partake of our great wines and fine french food. 

Summer sunshine and the Olympics in Paris 

If you've enjoyed a stay with us before or you are looking forward to experiencing the delights of Le Moulin de la Quentiniere for the first time, summer is another great time to visit especially as we're only a drive away from the excitement of this year's Olympics being held this July in Paris.

Nous venons de quitter votre sublime gîte. Nous tenions à vous remercier pour votre accueil, votre réactivité et votre sympathie ! Notre séjour a été parfait. 
More like a 5* spa hotel - five stars 
Fabulous place to stay. We were a party of 8 adults & children (although we only saw the children when they were hungry ✊) This enormous 5* let is more like a 5* spa hotel! Furnishings and decor are to a high standard, everything was clean and comfortable and the owners and manager were more than welcoming and helpful. Hoping to return one day.
