Le Moulin (in the Charante - South west France) lies in a tranquil valley surrounded by green fields and woodland. The meandering river in the summer flows over the banks and fills the surrounding fields on one side and our own water meadow lawn on the other side.
There is a feeling of isolation at the mill as not a single house can be seen from its grounds which about 5 hectres of garden, woodland, river, mill stream (including small waterfalls depending on rainfall.)
When you rent Moulin you not only get the house as your private abode for the length of time you are visiting but you also get in the price the 2 Giites.

2 double sofa beds
3 Kingsize beds
1 Double bed

Le Moulin is a place i cannot give full credit to in words it is a place that you have to visit and feel so come visit and see us.
You will sit out side of an evening just staring up at the sky because there are no street lights you will be amazed at how bright they shine, also bring a star book so you can name them or maybe you know them.
Le Moulin can make you feel like you have stepped back into the Victorian era have tea, sandwiches,and cake on the lawn play croquet and archery pull out a large Drafts game and let the afternoon slip by.
Just come and feel all your tensions and worries slip away,
But mostly go to Le Moulin and have a holiday to remember.
Le Moulin is a beautiful wonderful place to visit for adults (teenagers) may find it a little boring. I have put a games room in for them this consists of a P.S.P, jigsaws. There is also a small row boat which you can row up and down the river there is also a canoe which will go in the river, there is an Archery set for either left handed or right handed person. (THIS MUST BE SUPERVISED BY AN ADULT)
I must state that Moulin is in a very rural position although very beautiful expect all the countryy life and wildlife to be around you. Within a 40-45 minute drive there is the city Anguoleme which has lots of facility's.
