What a perfect place to spend a week this place has everything. The Moulin itself is comfortable and well equipped but it's the outside areas that really make it special. A really beautiful location with water on every side, good fishing literally on your doorstep and some special wildlife. We spotted the Beavers most evenings, Deer in the garden, countless birds and one night a family of Wild Boar came down to the river. If you can drag yourself away from the Moulin there are so many places to go to in the area with just a short drive, chateaus around every corner some lovely villages and markets and the Musee Beaux Arts in Tours is well worth visiting. We will be back.
We arrived to find a beautiful, country style house set in wonderful surroundings and backing onto the river. The location is well placed fo all amenities and for exploring the incredible Loire Valley region.
Maryse was a charming and delightful host who met us and showed us where to park - which was in the Hospital grounds opposite the house; literally, yards away.
Inside, Maryse showed us our suite which was enormous and perfect in every way. There was a huge living room with massive windows that allowed light to stream in and looked out onto the garden at the back and all the countryside. Maryse said we were free to use the garden at any time, if we wished.
The kitchen was modern, spotlessly clean and newly fitted . Lots of room to store your essentials, a breakfast bar, ceramic hob, oven, dishwasher microwave and plenty of utensils. Also a holiday essential - a washing machine.
Beyond that was the bedroom which again, was lovely and large. It contained a superb, double bed and a wardrobe. The bed faced the wonderful back windows which again were open and letting in the sunlight and sounds of birds and the gently flowing river below. There are shutters on all the windows for closing at night.
There was a second bedroom with twin beds and a superbly fitted out bathroom with shower and heated towel rail. it was a little on the small side but we had no issues as we could use the adjacent little bedroom to get changed in.
The house is very close to the town centre; I am talking about 5 minutes away. The town is a medieval, traffic free and with delightful places to eat and drink outside, as always in France. We loved exploring the old town and buildings in this picturesque setting. In my opinion, it is as lovely as Sarlat but without the crowds. There is the most adorable public park between the town and the house and my one regret is that we only had time to visit it on the last evening.
Just one or two niggles came to light: there was no plug for the bathroom basin so it could not hold water and there was quite a hole where the plug should be, only one bedside table and lamp. Also, you will need to supply your own washing up/laundry materials but the supermarket is very closely situated.
This is a wonderful, highly recommended location which I would love to visit again.
