About the property

Les Moulins du Daumail

Our three exquisitely furnished, detached guesthouses are located in an old enamel and porcelain mill, at the heart of a 15-hectare estate on the banks of the Vienne River: the Moulin guesthouse for 2-8 people, the Les Cornadis guesthouse for 2 lovers, and the Les Couleurs du Daumail guesthouse, for 4 people. They are distributed throughout the private hamlet that dates back to the 13th century, 15 minutes from the west of Limoges.

The pool area, covered in square glass plates, has a counter-current swimming pool (9x5x1.1) with non-chlorinated treated water. The pool is heated from April to November and is reserved exclusively for the guesthouses 24 hours a day. An infrared 5-person sauna and workout equipment are also available around the clock.

Canoes, kayaks, and a small boat are at your disposal. The river is very wide and quite shallow. There are beaches, but the riverbed is stony, so water shoes are recommended for walks. Table football, table tennis, badminton, and Jokari are available.

We have two baby travel beds, a high chair, a potty, a potty seat for the toilet, and a special little chair for the shower (we provide the bottom sheet for the travel bed, but no comforter or other bed linen).

Electric bikes can be rented upon booking.

All the linen is provided: sheets, towels, and bath linen for the pool.

The beds are made upon arrival.

The Moulin guesthouse for 2-8 people is isolated by the water, on a small island in the Vienne River behind the timbers of the old drying area. Access is via a footpath that arrives at a covered and enclosed terrace that contains the private bubbling spa.

The guesthouse contains, when you enter:

On the right, a kitchen with a dishwasher, a washing machine, a stove, fridge, freezer, and all the necessary cleaning equipment.

On the left, two small bedrooms with a 140-cm bed in one and 1-2 single beds in the other, a shower room with walk-in shower and WC, plus one separate WC

(So 5 adults can fit comfortably, 6 a little more cramped, or 4 adults and 2 children with no problem).

Sleeps up to 8. Detached from the guesthouse, opening onto the interior courtyard, there is a duplex studio apartment for two people with a double bed, shower, and WC available (only rented with the guesthouse).

In front:

A lounge with a panoramic view of the river from the two leather couches. A small desk contains a ratio and satellite television.

To the right, the exit from the dining room also allows you to enjoy a panoramic view of the river.

On your left, there is an independent WC and a large bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom (so, there are 4 bedrooms, 4 toilets, and 3 bathrooms).

The guesthouse is surrounded by a terrace that overlooks the river.

At the riverbank, there is a private garden and a barbecue, with a table, chairs, and sun loungers.

The Les Cornadis guesthouse, a charming cottage for two lovers, is a spacious 90-sq.m loft in a hamlet farm in Daumail at the edge of the forest. it offers a panoramic view of the river, the mills, the fields and the forests.

The guesthouse contains:

A lounge and dining room with a panoramic view of the river, a fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, and a separate WC.

On the mezzanine level, there is a 140-cm double bed, a shower room with a large walk-in shower, and a second separate WC. There is also a private waterside garden and a terrace at the edge of the woods with patio furniture, sun loungers and a barbecue.

The Les Couleurs guesthouse in Daimail sleeps 4 and is located in the old colour pigment workshop at the entrance to the hamlet of Daumail. It offers a peaceful location, delightfully close to the river and mills.

On the ground floor, the guesthouse contains: a fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, a dining room with a wood-burning Godin stove, a shower room and a WC.

On the upper floor, there is a bedroom with a 60x200-cm double bed, a bedroom with two 80x200-cm beds, transformable into a double bed on demand, and a separate WC.

p'tit coin de paradis et de serénité !

  • 5 of 5

C'est bien mieux qu'en photo, cet endroit ne peut être qu'un coup de foudre ! c'est un lieu splendide, plein de charme, entendre couler la Vienne, les oiseaux, et le calme !! le gite est une très belle rénovation le charme de l'ancien avec tout le confort . Nous avons passé 4 jours de sérénité à juste admirer la beauté de l'endroit, ballades juste au départ du gite

et l'accueil des propriétaires est chaleureux, conviviale et discret. nous reviendrons et partagerons l'adresse !!

Moment Exeptionnel

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons choisi le moulin pour notre we familial de l ascension. Nous étions réunis à 7 plus 1 bébé sur 4 générations. nous avons occupé le moulin plus le studio.

La description correspond exactement à ce que nous avons trouvé

le site est fabuleux, la vue de la pièce à vivre est exceptionnelle, les prestations sont à la hauteur, l' accueil charmant, le propriétaire discret mais présent pour chaque demande.

Nous reviendrons c 'est sur

Conseillés par des amis, à notre tour nous recommandons le Gîte du Moulin du Daumail. Idéal pour un séjour en amoureux ou en famille, un cadre idyllique bercé par le bruit de la rivière.Merci à Hervé et son épouse pour leur accueil. Nous y retournons avec plaisir. Maïté & Cyril

Location superbe, atypique, au niveau attendu !

  • 5 of 5

Nous cherchions un endroit spécial, pour se dépayser sur une courte période.

Nous n'avons vraiment pas été déçus ! A 6 personnes de 22 à 51 ans, chacun y a trouvé sa place, son plaisir et un formidable moment de détente.( Même nos 2 chiens avec qui nous avons fait de superbes balades ).

La literie ainsi que l'ensemble des équipements au top !

Je ne saurais que trop recommander cette location et ses propriétaires très agréables et accueillants.

Nous espérons pouvoir y refaire un séjour en été pour profiter de la rivière.

Le Moulin qui nous va bien !

  • 5 of 5

Cela fait déjà 4 ans de suite que nous retournons dans ce gite si atypique.

Pas facile résumer en quelques mots.

Un cadre extraordinaire, reposant et tellement rafraichissant en cas de forte chaleur.

Le Gite est très bien agencé, bien équipé y compris quand on est nombreux. Le salon avec sa vue magnifique est un régal pour les longues soirées entres potes a " refaire le monde "

Du coté activité, il en a pour tout le monde ! Piscine, Jacuzzi, pèche, canoé, baby foot, ping pong, balade à pieds ou a vélo, etc...

Petite suggestion à Hervé ( Le Propriétaire ) Ça manque un Terrain de pétanque et à l'ombre de préférence. A voir pour 2016.

En parlant des propriétaires, ils sont très simple et accueillant. Et il faut le dire très cool aussi, car on a pas toujours été discret. Et dernière chose, en cas de besoin ils sont là.

Vivement l'édition 2016.

Travailleur itinérant, un véritable bol d'air pur avec une vue fort sympathique dans un très joli duplex bien aménagé.

LA piscine intérieur et le sauna sont bien agréable.

Merci a Hervé et Monique pour leur accueil!
