  • Private garden

The property is approached by a private track from the pretty village of Montpollin. Documents for the Moulin date from 1432 but the present building dates from C19th and is solidly constructed of tuffeau and brick under a slate roof. With high ceilings and big windows the house is full of light. The thick walls and carrelage floors throughout keep it cool in the hottest weather.

All the principal rooms open on to a wide gravel terrace which is separated from the lake by a low retaining wall. The heart of the house is the 50 square metre salon with its handsome (working) fireplace and wonderful old furniture giving it more the feel of a family home than a rental house.

The spacious and well equipped kitchen leads off the dining end of the salon. It too is large and light and has a table for informal eating and a door leading on to the terrace.

A palatial double bedroom leads off the sitting end of the salon.

An attractive staircase rises from the salon to a wide mezzanine, furnished as an additional sitting room from which lead off 3 further large bedrooms, 1 small double, 1 large double and 1 "dormitory", currently furnished with 4 single beds to accomodate Polovy young stayovers. There is a bathroom with bath and shower over and a separate toilet.

The Moulin has capacity for more beds than are offered but as there is, as yet, only 1 bathroom, it is thought better to restrict it to 6 or possibly 7. Because of the lake, children must be over 6 years and able to swim.

The terrace offers a handsome teak table (with sun parasol) and chairs and a BBQ.

Further details outdoors

The Moulin is surrounded by a simple yet delightful, informal garden of rough cut grass, mature trees, several climbing roses and lavender. There are several weeping willows for shade and plenty of room for games. The pool (12.50 x4 metres) is situated about 300 metres from the Moulin. It is shared only with the owners. Wildlife is prolific. A heron fishes the lake, as can you from the wall or from the small rowing boat provided. There are also ducks, pheasant and roe deer and wild boar it the woods.

Further details

The Pays de la Loire region

This forested area north of the Loire is a beautful land of farming, orchards, rivers and a little further south, vineyards, where you will be welcomed to taste and buy wine. Many lovely cities such as Angers, with its chateau and fabulous tapesteries of The Apocalypse, Saumur, chateau and Cadre Noir, Chinon, the chateaux of Azay le Rideau and Usse, the Abbe of Fontevraud and the gardens of Villandry are all within very easy reach.

The Loire offers boat trips of various kinds, including bird watching and canoes may be hired. L a Fleche offers a world famous and most sensitively housed zoo.

Bauge

Bauge was once a capital city and the preferred residence of Good King Rene (of Anjou). His chateau may be visited and there is a fascinating Apothecary next door. There are many beautiful mansions, some excellent restaurants and a full range of shops, including a Super U market where petrol is available 24/7 with a card.

The celebrated Opera de Bauge (operadebauge.org) takes place annually the last week in July/first week of August, in the town theatre. There is a splendid market in the Place du Chateau on Monday afternoons.
