About the Owner

Hi there,

My name's Laura. I am the owner of Le moulin de Launay.

I fell in love with the place the moment I laid eyes on it and spent 15 years living in France while I renovated it with my husband.

When my daughter was born we moved back to the UK, so now I have wonderful caretakers over there to look after the houses and the animals.

It's a gorgeous part of France. I hope you have a wonderful time there.

Kindest regards,

Amazing property with great character and a lovely feel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in The Oaks for a week, June 2016. It's was a family holiday with 6 adults and 2 babies, but the house was so spacious it certainly didn't feel like we were in each other's way, and the rooms are such a generous size. The kitchen was our favourite place, so homely and a good gathering spot, with easy access to the garden area. It was only a short drive to the nearest town, but when you were back at the house it felt like you were in the middle of nowhere, beautiful silence, perfect for relaxing. The house had everything we needed and if there was anything extra the on-site host was so friendly and helpful. We took our dog and having a secure french meant she could run wild and we didn't need to worry. A great stay was had by all and I would definitely return if I had the chance.

In addition there are ferry services that take passengers, vehicles and freight to the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the Channel Islands.

Our quaint village is only a short stroll away along the pretty lanes that run through the rolling countryside. The village has a small bar. 20 minutes walk.

For seafood lovers Cancale is a must. The pretty coastal town is dedicated to fabulous restaurants selling the very best seafood in the world.
