Welcome to Le Maine Meunier!

Le Maine MeunierMike and Paula Cragg welcome you to their Ferme Auberge at Chavenat, just outside Montmoreau-St-Cybard, set in the rolling countryside of south Charente.

Not sure where we are? See our Location page.

A Ferme Auberge is a working farm where you can have a meal and a place to stay if you wish.

The ethos of a Ferme Auberge is that up to 80% of the food you eat here is produced on our farm.

Fresh from Gate to Plate!


Une ferme-auberge est une ferme en exploitation où vous pouvez prendre un repas et séjourner si vous le désirez.

Une ferme-auberge se doit de produire 80% de la nourriture que vous y mangez.
