With its central location in the village of Sainte Hermine, Pays de la Loire, Manoir du Moulin finds itself just 40 minutes from both La Rochelle and Nantes (both feature international airports) and just 5 minutes from the motorway to/from Bordeaux, Nantes, St Malo or Paris. Also 40 minutes away is Puy du Fou, the famous theme park featuring a Roman Coliseum, nightly spectacles and period villages.

Sainte Hermine itself has retained it’s rustic French charm and there are two small bars, one an English Pub serving food. There is also Le Macis restaurant, three boulangeries, a supermarket and even a small movie theatre, all within easy walking distance of MDM. Every Friday morning there is also a market featuring local fruit, vegetables and seafoods. During the summer months there is an outdoor municipal swimming pool just down the road for everyone to cool off in.

Within a few minutes drive is the village of Thire which hosts the annual William Christie Baroque music festival in the gorgeous gardens of William Christie’s home.

The location is perfect for any number of activities whether it’s a day at the beach, a visit to local chateaux, wine tours (this is Pays de la Loire after all), canal boating in the Marais Potevin or a trip to the zoo with the kids.
