Hidden Haven

Completely renovated in 2011-12, Manoir du Moulin is a hidden haven of tranquility and relaxation created by Canadians Warren Coulson and Shari Swan.


Every suite is furnished with custom made furniture, luxurious king size beds and crisp white linens.


The architectural features of the suites have been preserved with original high ceilings, stone walls and solid hardwood floors evoking comfort and charm.


A bountiful Canadian breakfast highlighted by freshly made, organic, off-the-tree preserves, fresh baked bread and pastries, local cheeses and meats and organic eggs awaits in the Conservatory.


Situated in the heart of the Vendée region, Manoir du Moulin is 40 minutes from Nantes, La Rochelle and the beautiful Vendée beaches.


As well as offering offering upscale accommodations, MDM is also a ‘Live Lab’ innovation think tank and event centre for the couple’s International Marketing and Insight agency-Streative Branding.


Built in the 18th century, Manoir du Moulin is one of the oldest homes in Sainte Hermine and retains much of it’s original character and charm.


Manoir du Moulin features over 5000 square meters of private enclosed gardens filled with flowers and fruit trees including cherry, kiwi, fig, pear, plum, apple, quince and grapevines.
