A Lovingly Renovated 19th Century Windmill
In The Vendee Region of France...

An Ideal Setting For a Romantic Honeymoon or Special Occasion.  1 Bedroom.
The Moulin is set, unusually, just outside a small village. The only noise comes from the Church bells that chime hourly.The sound of sheep and a couple of cows in the surrounding fields really emphasises the tranquility of the area.

The Windmill is arranged over four floors, a lovely modern kitchen with granite work surface, ceramic hob, oven / microwave, fridge / freezer and a breakfast table is situated in the basement.
A curved wrought iron staircase leads up to the living area, furnished with two leather easy chairs and houses a wood burning stove to warm up chilly spring or autumn evenings.
The original wooden staircase rises to the second floor landing and a beautiful modern bathroom, with large shower cubicle, basin and WC. Onwards and upwards, a wrought iron staircase rises, quite sharply, to the bedroom with double bed and a beautiful view. Fold up bed available if required.

Outside there is a BBQ area with a sheltered table and chairs, the outlook from the patio is of farmland with distant treelined views. The evenings provide stunning sunsets and clear starry skies.

Perfect for year round rentals all seasons with cosy rooms and beautifully clear winter skies.

The Windmill sleeps TWO adults. Unfortunately, because of the layout of the building, it is unsuitable for children or pets.....SORRY!
We fell in love with the property and had a fantastic holiday. The Windmill exceeded our expectations and is in a great location. So much to do in the area. We will definitely be back.
Thank You.   September 2010

Just got back home from our week in your windmill, one word WOW!

We had the most wonderful week, so relaxed, we were just happy to sit in the garden and just read, what a place to chill out.  I will recommend the windmill to anyone who wants to relax and unwind.
Thanks again....   P & D - Waterlooville, Hants.   23-30 July 2011

What a fabulous place for a wedding anniversary! As said before, by many, the windmill is wonderful - so well restored, in such a peaceful location and yet ideally located for visiting the local area.

All in all we have had a wonderful week - it was a surprise trip for my husband and from the moment his face lit up at the first glimpse of the windmill, our smiles have been firmly fixed.
We have been blessed with glorious weather and have loved sitting outside with a bottle of wine, watching the sun go down. There is nothing more relaxing.   23 - 30 April  2011

Situated within an hour of
La Rochelle , you can sample the renowned fresh fish and seafood in the many restaurants located by the beach front. The nearest town to the Moulin is Fontenay Le Comte, the ancient capital of the Vendee, with it's weekend market. Spend your hard earned cash in the delightful shops and boutiques.

A short drive will take you to the medieval village of
Vouvant , (designated one of the prettiest in France) and Mervent Forest with it's walks, cycle tracks, large leisure lake and various other attractions.

Beaches in the Vendée are excellent, clean and sandy. The nearest are approximately 40km away and take a little under an hour to reach. There are three resorts next to each other on the coast, la Tranche-sur-Mer, l'Aiguillon-sur-Mer, and la Faute-sur-Mer .

Nearest airports are La Rochelle, Nantes and Poiters, served by Ryanair and Flybe. Nantes is very easy and probably the most direct way of getting to the Windmill by air. Hertz and Avis car rental offices are situated at the airports and staff speak English!
