  • Comfortable well equipped house in very pretty village
    4 of 5

    We had good weather and were comfortable in this little cottage which was well equipped and close to all amenities. The village is really lovely - not many small villages boast a castle and an wonderful old church all in the meander of a river which has been dammed to form a reservoir lake. The walk around the village next to the river is very pretty and we did it several times in both directions. We were not there long enough to do much other than go briefly into the Mervent forest and into Fontenay le Comte which has an outstanding Saturday market. The local auberge in vouvant is a good basic place for everyday meals complete with what seemed like a strong resident English population frequenting it! Recommended

  • The house certainly has character - probably totally unique!.
    5 of 5

    At the end of an unmade road, with 2 neighbouring cottages, neither of which spoil the privacy. You have your own private estate of many acres with a stream/small river flowing through in a heavily forested area. As paying grandparents we took the modern en suite side upstairs and left son & grandchildren in the original side of the cottage. The house is clearly used by the owner family as it is very well equipped by letting standards. To the right of the hall is a massive comfortable sitting room. It has a large flat screen TV - just be aware that as in many properties in France there are only 3 'English' speaking channels - BBC World is only watchable one. There is as described a DVD player but unfortunately no cables to connect to anything. Bit of a pain because on the very hot days (all of them) it's good to get young children indoors for an hour to chill. Brill kitchen diner with a large modern range. Downstairs toilet / utility - we really wanted for nothing. The swimming pool is smallish but very well laid out & properly fenced in. Amused ourselves for ages with the self operated pool vacuum! Plenty of sun & shade seating options. Bonuses were the pin ball machine, once we had mastered it's idiosynchrosies, and the fig tree once we had won the battle with the wasps. Boulangerie only a few minutes drive away & supermarkets 15 minutes max. You'll have a wonderful peaceful holiday at Le Moulin. It is deep in the country but we did seem to have an exceptional number of flies to deal with. Seemed to win the battle after 2 days & left a fly swat & other aids to help anyone following. Did not ultimately detract from a lovely holiday!
