Le Moulin((is located in the Charente - (South West France.)
It lies in its own tranquil, soothing valley surrounded by green fields and woodland.
The rolling meandering, winding river which not only passes the side of the house but runs around the gardens and has paths and bridges to take you over to other parts of the garden.
This winding river is not fenced off, but over the years i have had families not just once but twice and they have brought their young and loved ones with them and not found it a problem.
There is a feeling of isolation at the mill as not a single house can be seen from its grounds which is about 5 hectares of garden, woodland, river, mill stream (including small waterfalls depending on rainfall.)
This residence would also make a wonderful wedding venue. We have the land to put a Marquee up, also enough sleeping arrangements from 4 – 20.
The woodland, river and bridges do make magical and enchanted backdrop for Photographs.
When you rent Moulin you not only get the house as one of your private abodes but you also have in the price the 2 Gites for the length of your visit.
The whole time that you stay at Moulin it is your own private restful sanctuary, where you forget the world outside and just have a dreamlike experience for a holiday.
If you are taking children out with you although Moulin is very quiet the city of Angouleme has many attractions not only for children but adults.
There are all kinds of markets in various locations where you will see not only veg, fish, meat for sale but a lot of animals which you have to resist if you can.

Le Moulin is a place I cannot give full credit to in words it is a place that you have to visit and feel the enchanted, mysterious and magical so come and experience all that Moulin can offer.
Due to having no street lights the night stars are clear, bright and so easy to see if you have knowledge of the stars spot the Plough, North Star etc.
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.
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, books, sketch book and pens etc.
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, we also have an Archery set for either left handed or right handed people. (THIS MUST BE SUPERVISED BY AN ADULT.)
I must state that Moulin is in a very rural position although very beautiful expect all the country life sounds day and night. We sometimes get deer coming to the water to drink, you can also hear the owls of the evening, the calling call of the toads, watch the lizards run across the balcony or footpaths, Kingfishers diving in the river , the birds singing their songs.
All this awaits you.
