Self Catering and Bed & Breakfast Holidays in a beautiful setting with a lovely pool. Petit Moulin is approached along a drive lined with lawns and Walnut trees with a sunny central courtyard giving plenty of parking. The following pages will show you around the property as a customer sees it and below is a brief run down of the home and gardens.

Conservatory overhanging the river. 3 Acres Website The setting is an old farm with watermill (to be renovated) The barn and buildings have been converted to give good quality accommodation. Poitou Charente is famed as the second sunniest area of France. The Main House has a large front terrace with central front door leading into the large open plan kitchen, dining and living room, the utility room off the kitchen (with WC off it), leads into the large conservatory which overhangs the river and has stunning views along the river and across the fields, where you see Kingfisher, deer and wild boar. Upstairs are 4 good sized bedrooms, bathroom and WC. We have a very large Workshop / garage attached to the end of the house. There is a large south facing terrace on the back of the house which looks along the lawn towards the orchard and to the side is the swimming pool. The 2 Gites face the front of the property and have there own gardens. The 3 bedroom Gite has central patio doors leading into the dining area with the kitchen to the left and sitting area on the right, straight ahead is the woodburner fire and a door leading into the hallway with a double / family room with WC and shower room on the right, on the left is a door to the barn, upstairs is an ensuite double room and an ensuite twin room. The 2 bedroom Gite patio doors open into the open plan living room with kitchen area, Dining table & Sitting area, 2 doors lead off into the family bedroom (Double bed & bunk beds) and Double room with doors leading onto a small terrace with views towards the walnut trees and river. Another door from the main area leads into the shower room and WC. The gites have gas cookers, dishwashers, fridges with small freezer compartment and all the usual kitchen utensils. The Bed and Breakfast rooms have been converted from the old Bergerie (sheepfold) and have separate ground floor entrances with their own individual terraces. One b&b room is a double room with optional extra single put up bed, door leading into Shower/WC room. The other room is a family room with a double bed and bunk beds (by popular demand) The very large barn is used as a games and meeting room and has in the past been used for wedding receptions and party's. It also houses the linen and general stores and washing machines. The Grounds, nearly 3 acres, are mainly laid to lawn, we have an orchard with apple, pear and fig trees, there are also nectarine, peach, kiwi, Walnut and other fruit trees dotted around the premises. There is a wooded area, paddock, and large river fed pond with Trout, Perch, Bream and other fish in it. The business has seen good growth since we opened 2 years ago and also benefits from very little competition with few gite complexes set in such beautiful surroundings and giving a wonderful lifestyle opportunity. We have a website (included) and any help needed will of course be given to help the new owners. The sale price includes the business fixtures & fittings, cookers, washing machines, Dish washers, fridges. bedding etc. (approx. 20,000 Euros) and also the sit on mower and other tools needed to keep the gardens 'together'. It really is a walk in and operate business with no further outlay needed. There is further potential for increasing income by converting the Mill into a luxury B&B suite and also converting part of the barn into a 2 bedroom Gite. There is also potential for using the Meadow as a camp site. If you are interested want to chat about Le Petit Moulin, please don't hesitate to give us a call.
