Help the Domaine du Meunier after COVID19

Buy a voucher or giftcard for a future stay in Mortagne sur Gironde!

About the project

Dear future & loyal customers, friends and family,
Faced with the COVID19 crisis, we are going through a difficult period. To assume the continuity of the Domaine du Meunier and its unique events such as the outdoor and indoor Film screenings and the International electro-mechanic Pinball Contest, we need you! We are launching a pre-sale of vouchers and giftcards for a stay in guest rooms or lofts situated on the port of Mortagne sur Gironde. You can also buy a ticket for one of our events.

In 2003, we fell in love with the place that became the Domaine du Meunier, located at the harbour of Mortagne-sur-Gironde in the Charente-Maritime region. Dating from the end of the 19th century, the Miller’s house La Maison du Meunier and the industrial buildings of the flour factory Frères Parias have been restored and converted into guest rooms and lofts. It took us several years of renovation to create a place in which industrial-inspired design and vintage decor meet, all with a view on the Gironde Estuary.

La Maison du Meunier houses 5 rooms and 4 apartments served by a magnificent walnut staircase. A living with library gives you the opportunity to relax, there is also an honesty bar and boutique with local products, a dining room with a lot quirkiness and a Russian biljard. The old factory "Minoterie Parias Frères" is now accommodated with 8 gîtes.

The former flour stockage of the Parias Frères factory has been transformed into a reception hall. By keeping its original wooden vault, the place retains its industrial and authentic aspect. Today, a collection of electro-mechanical pinball machines in working condition gives a retro and quirky atmosphere to this place, which inspires us to organize the Pinball Contest, outdoor and indoor Film Screenings,seminars, concerts, wedding celebrations, birthdays and more!

All around the house and the buildings there is a large country garden where flowers and aromatic essences intermingle with a permaculture vegetable garden and fruit trees. Each week, the rooms are brightened with bouquets of fresh flowers. Natural pools have been cut out of a silo suitable for swimming or aquaponics. Our jams are homemade with the fruits of the garden.

One of our customers has put in a comment:

"Un coup de foudre" means "A bolt of lightning"… the French experience of falling in love is likened to an overwhelming force of nature. Experiencing Maison du Meunier, and the people who inhabit it, is most definitely akin to being struck by an unexpected bolt. You simply can't help but fall in love.  

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams"

Staying in Maison du Meunier to relax, wakes you up to what it is…to feel…to live…to love…to dream.  


Our biggest dream is to continue sharing this place and moments of happiness and magic with you!

What are the funds for?

The presale of giftcards and vouchers for a stay will help us to maintain our cash flow. We hope to make a fresh energetic start and welcome you soon after the deconfinement. We take advantage of this time of confinement to garden, finalize building work and prepare the Domaine du Meunier for a post COVID19 period that we hope will be prosperous. We are changing our dining room, not only will there be a surprise for you under the ceiling .... but we will also replace the large table for several small tables to maintain social distance. Our housekeepers have always been our heroes and will be even more so. Together with them we will ensure the cleanliness of the Domaine du Meunier by strengthening the daily cleaning protocol through new disinfection measures.
