Looking for a memorable top-quality holiday with a touch of luxury in a charming French cottage gite whilst carp fishing beside a beautiful lake in the Loire Valley? Even better, want to bring along your family or angler friends - so they can enjoy a great time too? Well, you’ve just found the perfect place!

Spend idyllic days fishing on our glorious private two acre lake for carp (mirror & common 15-40lbs), plus roach, tench and others, while your family relax around a sparkling, heated 12x6 metre swimming-pool and play area, sit in the hot-tub spa or explore the 15 acres of magnificent tree-lined grounds, fields and woods surrounding this peaceful 17th century watermill.

This is a very special place in France and with our own bait-shop/service and English-speaking assistance on our source-fed lake and six swims, we are certain you will not be disappointed.

Le Moulin de Boutineau and its three fully-restored and equipped gites lies in the tranquil countryside heart of the picturesque Loire Valley Chateaux and Vineyard region, but importantly for a great holiday it is not too remote - just 2 kms from the famous medieval city of Loches, with its own chateau, restaurants, café’s, bars, shops and lively twice-weekly market packed with mouth-watering rural produce from ‘The Garden of France’.


Perfect after a hard days fishing - a swim!

The three delightful cottages (for either 6, 4 or 2 people) can also accommodate an exclusive party of 12, and all have their own garden/patio and barbeque area, as well as cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, TV/DVD/stereo CD, full central heating and access to washing/drying facilities.

The weather in this central part of France is usually wonderfully balanced with gorgeous, colourful Spring’s starting in March/April, while in the long summer months temperatures are often in the 80’s, and the golden ‘Indian’ Autumn’s can sometimes last until November.

We are only three hours drive from Caen or St Malo ferries and about four from Le Havre, or you can fly from Stansted with Ryanair to Tours, hire a car and arrive at the Moulin in 40 minutes. We are an English family who pride ourselves on attention to those details that help make your holiday memorable - including dinner cooked for you - so don’t hesitate to telephone on 0033-247-915855 or contact us online.
