We had a wonderful stay at Le Moulin de Lusseau earlier this year. I stayed with my husband and two boys for a week and we all had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay. Plenty of room for my children to play and not disturb anyone, plenty of lovely places to walk, river to paddle in, close to good local attractions such as Le Vallee des Singes and Futuroscope which was fabulous. I can't speak highly enough about the warm and friendly welcome we received from the owners. Will definitely be returning again soon. Thank you for your hospitality.

My wife and I stayed at the mill for four days in June 2012. We happened to share our stay with another couple who were house-hunting in the area, so we met at the breakfast table and shared our day's experiences. We enjoyed a good breakfast before we set off for the day. It was very helpful to have the option of an evening meal too. we stayed in the room called Higgledy, with a comfortable bed, clean room and bathroom. We enjoyed the relaxing walks all around the area. We look forward to another visit.

Lovely B&B, rooms are spacious, well equipped and the hosts so welcoming. Great spot to discover the marshes nearby and we also had an excellent day trip to Futuroscope. We'll be back!

I had the distinct pleasure of staying at Le Moulin de Lusseau in mid April of 2012. The grounds were lovely and the hosts were very friendly and an absolute delight to visit with. They were helpful in orienting me to the area and the culture and provided excellent recommendations of things to see, places to eat, etc. Breakfast was delicious and generously sized in their tea room. Interestingly, the tea room has a window through which one can see the old water mill. The room I stayed in was spacious and immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. A full-sized adult can freely move around the bedroom, bathroom, and shower stall. I hope to return to the area again and will, without hesitation, stay at Le Moulin de Lusseau. -An Adventuring American

Stay on the D948 for 20 Kilometers until you come to a crossroads in a small area called Cerizat and take the left turning to Chef-Boutonne on the D737. Follow this road to the end, it ends in a T junction (about 10 miles/15 kilometres). At the T junction turn right towards Brioux sur Boutonne (away from Chef-Boutonne). Follow this road (D740) through Lussais and then approximately 100 meters after you have left the village of Lussais, there is a small turning on your left which is the entrance to the Moulin de Lusseau. Enter property by going through the farm gate and porchway. From La Rochelle: Take the N11 towards Niort, then follow the by-pass around Niort towards Limoges. From the by-pass take the D740 to Aiffres (and Limoges) and follow this for approximately 30 kilometres until you come a large crossroads to the right is signposted Melle and to the left is Brioux.
