A lovingly renovated 19th century windmill in the Vendee region and an ideal setting for a romantic honeymoon or special occasion.
The Moulin is set 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 tranquillity of the area.
The Windmill is arranged over four floors, a lovely modern kitchen with granite work surface, ceramic hob, grill / 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. Onward and upwards, a wrought iron staircase rises, quite sharply, to the bedroom with double bed and a beautiful view.
Outside there is a BBQ area with a sheltered table and chairs, the outlook from the patio is of farmland with distant tree lined views. The evenings provide stunning sunsets and clear starry skies.
St Cyr des Gats has a Cafe / Bar, Restaurant, Post Office, Boulangerie, Church and Hairdressers. A small Supermarket (Spar), Cash point, Butchers, Chemist and Patisserie can be found in La Calliere, 6 km away.
A short drive will take you to the medieval village of Vouvant, (designated one of the prettiest in France) and Mervant Forest with its walks, cycle tracks, large leisure lake and various other attractions.
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 its weekend market.
