Description

La Merlerie is millers cottage with adjacent water mill built in 1896 which was working until the 1970's milling flour & feed for local farmers. Since then it was purchased by a French artist from Paris and converted to a holiday home. La Merlerie is now owned by a British farmily who have finished the pretty cottage to a high standard with en suite bathrooms, new kitchen kitchen & dining facilities. Below the house and overlooking the water meadow is a large terrace area with sun loungers and tables, 10m x 5m salt water pool (no chlorine) heated if required at extra cost. There is a cellar/games room with pool games table and 5 bicyles for residents use.
The grounds surrounding the house include the mill pond, formal gardens and water meadow running away to the boundary stream that is the river Oeil. This is a truly rural and peaceful location. Within 2 kilometres we have a boulangerie. A country town which has supermarkets, banks, pharmacy & most useful

Location description from owner

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region

The Limousin & Auvergne regions are of the least populated areas of France - however, it is also one of the most beautiful, with rolling hills and valleys, small grazing meadows, many Charollais cattle & country lanes with virtually no traffic - ideal for cycling and walking.

“Very relaxing holiday”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

We had a lovely holiday at this property. The property itself is extremely well equipped and provided everything we needed for a great stay. The owners were very accommodating and helpful. The area it's self is very quiet and rural, which suited us we wanted a quiet holiday. It was lovely every morning to be able to open all of the downstairs windows to a beautiful view.
