On the banks of the River Clain in rural France
Come and join us at our 18th Century renovated watermill which sits alongside the River Clain. We are in the heart of the Vienne region of France, 5km from the Vallée des Singes.
Nature at its best ...
Nestled between woodland and it’s own wild island, come and breathe fresh air, enjoy home cooked vegan meals, star gaze on a clear night. Sit back and relax in one of the riverside clearings with a deckchair, and listen to the rippling water and bird song.
Lots to see and do ...
In addition to the places to visit shown below, why not explore one of the many local pathways on foot or mountain bike. Take out the boat and row gently down the river. For the more courageous, take a refreshing dip in the most natural of pools, the Clain.
Environmentally friendly ...
We aim to provide an environmentally friendly stay, with natural and upcycled decoration, organic bed linen and towels and healthy plant-based wholefood made from locally sourced organic produce.
We welcome guests who care about well-being for all, people and animals, wildlife and the environment. Those who want to experience nature at its finest and enjoy the various activities offered in the Vienne.
We had a wonderful stay at Moulin de la Cueille. The site is exceptional, calm, in the heart of nature. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. Linda and Russell are fantastic hosts, available, caring and always happy to discuss many topics. The breakfast if generous and varied. Linda cooks very well, both sweet and savory, and uses many fresh ingredients, notably from the garden. A stay 100% respectful of animals and the environment.
We will definitely go back!

A Vegan/Vegetarian Nature lovers' paradise.
"Linda and Russ are the perfect hosts, both warm and very welcoming, and we spent a wonderful fortnight at this charming and characterful old mill, set in the beautiful French countryside and surrounded by nature.
It was a very relaxing, therapeutic and much overdue holiday where time spent on and in the river was great fun and yet was very calming.
The freshly prepared and healthy meals, using locally sourced ingredients never failed to impress, both delicious and nutritious.
In addition, the weather and local attractions made for a truly memorable and enjoyable holiday and we are looking forward to a return visit very soon".
