About this property

Peace and Calm Among the Islands of the River Clain. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

Moulin Bois is located in the middle of a large wood, at the end of a tree lined single track lane. It's the perfect getaway for those looking for a calm and relaxing holiday.

The gîte is one wing of the mill house. It has its own entrance and was completely renovated in February 2017.

The walk to the village is along a quiet and pleasant single track lane. The restaurant is rated highly and there is also a great bakery, a shop, pharmacy and bar/tabac.

Moulin Bois is first mentioned in historical records in 1403, although there was probably a mill on this site before that.
