About the property
Le Moulin du Chemin is a 16th-century former mill with feature beams and stone walls throughout. The main building is wrapped around a beautiful heated swimming pool area with a BBQ feature. All the rooms are en suite and our rates are for shared accommodation.
Le Moulin is at the end of a no-through lane at the end of a valley so there is little, if any, passing traffic. The loudest noise you will hear is one of birdsong.
The 15 acres of organic pasture and the ancient forest are divided by a bubbling steam with stone bridges, an orchard and special yoga and meditation areas where you will truly learn the meaning of nature.
The venue is surrounded by medieval villages, some wonderful sightseeing, and local markets where you can enjoy locally sourced fruit and vegetables, cheeses, fish and meat.
All rooms are en suite and are full of character – whether they have ancient beams or feature stone walls. Each room comes complete with tea and coffee-making facilities replenished daily. A selection of herbal teas is available if preferred.
Bath and hand towels, swimming towels, a hair dryer, soap and shower gel are all provided.
There’s a well stocked guest drinks fridge available 24/7. The water at Le Moulin is safe to drink, but we can offer still and sparking bottled mineral water when preferred.
Pool is heated to between 22°C and 26°C when necessary, and open from May to October.
