The 'machine room' which has a stone flagged floor, oak beams and the original (18th century) illuminated mill workings.There are comfortable armchairs and settee, TV/DVD, Satellite, CD player and radio, books and games. A wide hardwood staircase leads to the first floor bedrooms.
The 'Oak room' with the old mill stones embedded in the floor has a comfortable double bed, TV with DVD player & en suite shower room, wc, hand basin and annex 'Millers room' with 2 x single beds which can also be accessed by its own private balcony. A third double bedroom, has a TV video/DVD with en suite Jacuzzi bath, separate WC and host's a four poster bed and a single bed.All bedrooms are equipped with electric fans to keep you cool in the hot summer months.
The covered eating area has just been converted into a "low carbon" (waterwheel electricity, rain water toilet etc..) eating area/lounge with large patio doors that look out across the garden.
A fully fitted kitchen has been installed in the original mill race, indoor fishing! Large work surfaces with double sink, microwave/grill, oven, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, toaster and large fridge/freezer.
The "Green Venice" (Marais Poitevin) is only a pleasant 40 minutes drive. An hour to the south is Cognac with its several distilleries offering guided tours, including the famous Hennessy, Martell and Remy Martin. Wildlife parks, historical buildings, chateaux, museums, aquariums, golf courses and theme parks make this area the perfect choice for that very special holiday that bring returning guests year after year.
We have no children restrictions, we have brought up 3 children here and have rented out to families with children of all ages over the past 14 years.We have done every thing possible to make the property & grounds as safe and child friendly as possible,enclosed gardenaround the pool,electric gates etc..but nothing can replace parent supervision.
