A Quick Overview
Moulin de Boutineau is home to the beautiful Moulin Lake, stocked with some 60 immaculate carp up to 45lbs. Spend idyllic days carp fishing in France while others with you have a proper holiday too.
The Moulin Lake is only 35 yards from the courtyard cottages, so while you enjoy carp fishing and maybe a cold beer, your partner, friends or family can relax around a sparkling, heated 12x6 metre swimming-pool and orchard play area, sit in the hot-tub spa or explore our 15 acres of magnificent tree-lined grounds, fields, woods and wildlife surrounding this peaceful 17th century watermill.
Moulin de Boutineau and its three charming, fully-restored and equipped gites lies in the countryside heart of the picturesque world heritage Loire Valley Chateau and Vineyard region.
However, most important for a great holiday it’s not too remote - just a couple of kilometres from the famous medieval town of Loches, with its own chateau, restaurants, café’s, bars, shops, supermarkets and lively twice-weekly market packed with mouth-watering rural produce from ‘The Garden of France’.
The three delightful cottages (for either 6, 5 or 2 people) can also accommodate an exclusive party of 13, and all have their own garden/patio and BBQ area, as well as cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, TV-DVD combo, USB music tower, free WIFI, full central heating and access to washing/drying facilities. Everything you need is provided and all beds freshly made-up.
The weather in this central part of France is usually wonderfully balanced with gorgeous, colourful Spring’s starting in early April, while in the long summer months temperatures are often in the 80’s, and the golden ‘Indian’ Autumn’s can last until early November.
We are only three hours drive from Caen or St Malo ferries and about four from Le Havre and Cherbourg, or you can fly from Stansted with Ryanair to Tours, hire a car and arrive at the Moulin in 40 minutes.
