Description from owner

Description

The property is approached by a private track from the pretty village of Montpollin. Documents for the Moulin date from 1432 but the present building dates from C19th and is solidly constructed of tuffeau and brick under a slate roof. With high ceilings and big windows the house is full of light. The thick walls and carrelage floors throughout keep it cool in the hottest weather.

All the principal rooms open on to a wide gravel terrace which is separated from the lake by a low retaining wall. The heart of the house is the 50 square metre salon with its handsome (working) fireplace and wonderful old furniture giving it more the feel of a family home than a rental house.

The spacious and well equipped kitchen leads off the dining end of the salon. It too is large and light and has a table for informal eating and a door leading on to the terrace, close to the pond. Children must be over 6 years and able to Swim. The pool is 300 mètres from the Moulin. It is shared only with the owners.

A palatial double bedroom leads off the sitting end of the salon.

An attractive staircase rises from the salon to a wide mezzanine, furnished as an additional sitting room from which lead off 3 further large bedrooms, 1 small double, 1 large double and 1 "dormitory", currently furnished with 4 single beds to accomodate young stayovers. There is a bathroom with bath and shower over and a separate toilet.

The Moulin has capacity for more beds than are offered but as there is, as yet, only 1 bathroom, it is thought better to restrict it to 6 or possibly 7. Because of the lake, children must be over 6 years and able to swim.

The terrace offers a handsome teak table (with sun parasol) and chairs and a BBQ.

“Unique Mill House in exclusively quiet location”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2018

My wife and I stayed at this lovely Mill house for six nights in July 2018. Le Moulin at Montpollin is an absolute delight with stacks of character, charm and the ideal peaceful retreat. Inside the downstairs drawing room is much larger than we imagined from the photos online and, when you walk in, it feels like a family home. With comfortable sofas, fireplace, tables for playing games, traditional French furniture, pictures and ornaments including a surprising number of ducks (we discovered Helene loves ducks!), it was also the perfect place to escape the afternoon heat for a siesta. We also loved the kitchen which had everything we needed for cooking and we could have happily fed a huge family if needed with the generous amounts of crockery and cooking equipment. The downstairs bed was fine (although we would have preferred a larger bed because I am pretty tall). No matter. The little upstairs bathroom was a duck delight with lots of little blue duck tiles on the walls. But the property really comes into its own when you are sitting outside next to the mill pond. We ate outside under a parasol, read books and I drew some pastels and acrylics (not very good art from me). We also took our binoculars and had the best time watching the many ducks, moorhens and frogs. Plus a beautiful kingfisher and we also spotted a large coypu with long whiskers that was building a nest – pretty cute – although in France these are treated as vermin! We followed the progress of the ducks and their flotillas of ducklings with great interest every hour/day. The pool is in the owner’s garden but it is only a 2 minute drive away. This really was not a problem for us. It’s a beautiful pool in a stunning setting with the owner’s chateau as the backdrop. On the rare occasions we managed to tear ourselves away we explored the pretty town of Baugé (good wifi in the tourist office) and also found a fabulous little restaurant in the village of Fourgeré (La Petite Folie Gourmande). The lambs’ kidneys in mustard were superb… However, the best thing about the Moulin at Montpollin is the owner – Helene and her family, so welcoming and so kind. When we arrived late and exhausted on a Sunday (no supermarkets open), she gave us wine, milk and a collection of bread and other essentials for us to make our own light supper. Thank you Helene for all your hospitality and providing us with the perfect place to unwind! We will aim to return and see you again.
