Watermill | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10

Spacious, beautifully restored water mill in lovely rural setting. Sleeps 10.

Le Moulin d'Echanfray is a completely renovated 18th-century watermill set on a quiet country lane in the verdant valley of the River Charentonne. The mill has been beautifully restored to create a stunning holiday home where original features combine with modern comforts in a stylish design characterised by quality fittings and luxury designer fabrics.

Tastefully done out and supremely comfortable, the mill is laid out over three floors and has five bedrooms fitted with top quality hotel beds and Ralph Lauren bedding, three shower rooms and a downstairs cloakroom, a good-sized fully-equipped kitchen/dining room complete with the mill's original interior water wheel, and a spacious, thoroughly relaxing drawing room with triple aspect windows and a stable door overlooking the weir and river. Outside, guests have a large private garden right on the river and a pontoon perfect for leisurely sundowners at the water's edge.

Le Moulin d'Echanfray is perfect for families (or two families holidaying together), groups of friends, reunions, wedding parties, and family Christmases or New Year celebrations. Bikers are welcome (secure parking is available).

The Mill has been carefully restored and is designed to combine up-to-date comforts with traditional character, and many original features - including the original water wheel - have been retained. Tastefully done out and supremely comfortable, the Mill has a lovely spacious and airy feel and is beautifully furnished and superbly equipped.

On the ground floor, a stable door leads into the entrance hall and a spacious kitchen/dining room, perfect for leisurely breakfasts and convivial dinners beside the water wheel. On this level there's also a cloakroom and a twin room with an ensuite shower, ideal for those who find stairs difficult to negotiate.

Upstairs, the gorgeous drawing room has triple aspect windows and a stable door overlooking the river, and is a lovely restful space, perfect for relaxing, playing games or curling up with a good book or film. Off the drawing room is a shower room and toilet and a good-sized twin room, prettily done out in toile de jouy fabrics and painted furniture.

Under the eaves on the third floor there are three further bedrooms, a double with ensuite facilities, a twin and a single (an extra bed can also be added), all lovely and light with high sloping ceilings and comfortable hotel beds.

Le Moulin d'Echanfray is superbly located in the beautiful Normandy countryside, surrounded by pastureland and set right on the river. Though peaceful, the Mill is not isolated and is within walking distance of the typical Norman village of Notre-Dame du Hamel, which has a shop and a bar, and just a few minutes from La Marigotière, an excellent restaurant recommended in the Michelin Guide Rouge.
