About The Owner
We spend about half our year in England and half in this wonderful property in the Loire Valley. The minute we saw this property we felt total peace and tranquility.

Why The Owner chose Indre-et-Loire
We had been holidaying in this region of France for over 20 years.
We took over a year looking at many properties but when we saw this one, there was no doubt in our minds.
No amount of photographs can possibly describe this wonderful hideaway.
The minute you step foot inside the gates the outside world just fades away.

The Mill on the Indre
This property was even better than its description. Very peaceful and beautiful but not isolated. The accommodation was clean and very comfortable with a number of outside sitting and eating areas both in shade or sun, whatever you wanted. The owners were always willing to help you enjoy and get the most from your holiday, having a wealth of local knowledge. We enjoyed Tours on flower market day and the many beautiful villages along the Indre. And of course we enjoyed exploring the islands and bridges on the property and looking out for wild life. It is a very special place.

Such a beautiful property in the midst of so many great, beautiful chateaus and wineries. Visit the market and indulge in all the yummy local fare. Or just hang out on the grounds. Lots of walking paths and the family border collies for playmates. As the Moulin is (obviously) on the rive there is also plenty of water recreation available. Restful or adventurous; take your pick. Lovely vacation spot!
Immer wieder hin!
Wir waren schon mehrfach dort. Es hat uns immer sehr gut gefallen. Wir werden wieder hinfahren. Das Anwesen ist bestens geeignet für diejenigen, die dem Trubel entfliehen wollen. Für Familien mit Kindern sehr geeignet . Es gibt immer irgend etwas in der Natur zu beobachten, daher Fernglas nicht vergessen. Die Chefin verrät Ihnen auch, wo es das leckerste Baguette gibt.
An absolutely ideal location for a relaxing holiday. Fish, read ,or just let the world drift by.If you feel energetic you can walk, canoe,cycle, or jog. Situated close to all the major chateaux, and most of the smaller ones, the Moulin is an ideal base for touring, come and go as you please. Alison is very knowledgeable about wine and will offer advice and directions to many local "caves" and also about localfacilities and markets etc.
Peter is also very helpful, and a great raconteur, full of bon homie.
Poppy and Will are also great characters and full of fun.
I called this review " Paradise, as it has all the attributes , location,ambience, wine but bring your own virgins!!
I am so lucky to visit here every Summer. I just love it! It doesn't take the usual few days to unwind. It's so beautiful and peaceful, you simply relax and are able to enjoy your holiday as soon as you arrive. I have stayed in both properties. They are very clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. Nothing is too much trouble for Alison and Peter. They are so welcoming and knowledgeable about the area, which helps enormously to get the best out of your holiday. I love the tranquillity and beauty of the property and can easily leave my hectic life behind! I so enjoy the 'French way of life', cycling to the bakers for fresh bread, going to the wonderful markets, and of course sampling the wonderful food and wines on offer. There are plenty of places to visit in the area from gorgeous chateaus and gardens to shopping in Tours. There really is something for everyone!
