Le Moulin d'en bas - Souesmes - En Sologne

ROUTE DE PIERREFITTE 41300 SOUESMES

The MOULIN D’EN BAS, Souesmes is an authentic watermill dating from the XVII century. In the splendid forests of Sologne, the mill is on a little island surrounded by a shallow river flowing into the moat . The local area is ideal for ramblers, hikers and cyclists alike. We are located just 50 minutes from the historic towns of Orléans, Bourges and Blois, from some of the most magnificent  châteaux of the Loire such as Chambord and Cheverny,and in the heart of the hunting region founded by par Napoléon III 200 years ago. For wine lovers, the vineyards of Sancerre, Pouilly sur Loire, Quincy and Mennetou-Salon are nearby,and you can enjoy wine tasting among the vines !  The atmosphere at the mill is very cosmopolitan, with guests from all over the world, and communication is always easy as  we speak fluent English, French and German, some Italian and even a bit of Swedish!

The mill is just 86 minutes by train  from Paris Austerlitz, and Salbris station is just 6 miles away and the station at Vierzon is 15 miles away. By motorway we are 2 hours from Paris, or 4 hours from Calais, and the nearest exit being Salbris on the A71, which is 7 miles from Souesmes.

On Tripadvisor our guests have given us the maximum mark of 5/5 and for that we thank you very much!


The mill with its historic atmosphere is set in wooded, rural countryside just on the outskirts of a village. It is built on the river Sauldre, clear and full of pike, trout and zander, where you can go fishing while you eat your breakfast! There are also a wide variety of species of birds that nest and feed at the mill throughout the year. We have osprey, herons and cranes, robins, kingfishers, bluetits and nuthatches. For those of you interested in game, we often see deer and wild boar, as well as pheasants, partridge and woodcock.
