Full description:

A magical property & the perfect romantic holiday retreat. The Moulin is set, just outside a small village where the only noise comes from the Church bells that chime hourly.

St Cyr des Gats has a Cafe / Bar, Restaurant, Boulangerie, Post Office, Church and Hairdressers. A small minimarket, Cash point, Butchers, Chemist and Patisserie can be found in La Calliere, 6 kms away.



Ideally located with lots of options for easy access to and from the UK. Year round low costs flights go to La Rochelle (45 mins) Nantes (1hr) or Poitiers (1.5hrs) The ferry ports of St Malo or Caen are just 3 hours and 3.5 hours drive respectively. 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. Medieval Bazoges en Pareds with Donjon castle tower and herb gardens used to host summer jazz events is 10 mins drive while the bustling former capital and renaissance town of Fontenay le Comte has a year round weekly market and lots of restaurants, shops, hospital and summer time festivals.



An early viewing is essential to fully appreciate the setting and uniqueness this beautiful home represents.


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. Onwards and upwards, a wrought iron staircase rises, quite sharply, to the bedroom with double bed and a beautiful view.



Outside the gardens and grounds extend to approx. 1000m2 or quarter of an acre. Approached via a long drive with gated entrance and parking for 2 or 3 cars. There is a BBQ area with a sheltered terrace with plenty of space for table and chairs, the outlook from the patio is of farmland with distant tree-lined views. A great spot to sit relax and enjoy stunning sunsets and clear starry skies.



The property benefits from having been totally restored to retain charm and character all to a very high standard and with no expense spared. The property is double glazed, has electric wall mounted radiators, plus log burning stove for cosy winter evenings, modern sanitation system, re-wired and is ready to use with no work required.



La Rochelle



La Rochelle is France's 2nd largest boat building area and the historic Vieux Port remains largely unchanged. A daily fish market can be found in the old town until 12:00 midday. The port is very attractive and waterside cafés and restaurants offer a relaxing break. The seafood platters are their speciality and are excellent.



Vouvant



Vouvant is a quiet historic town with a church overlooking a valley and river. There is a very good crêperie and pedalos can be hired out by the hour.



Mervent



Mervent is only a short drive ride from St Cyr Des Gats, it has a dam and a large reservoir. The area has been developed with tourism in mind. There are large wooded areas ideal for walking and particularly mountain biking.



Venise Vert



Venise Vert is the canal system the Vendée is famous for. There are numerous places (Maillezais is one of the best, 20 min drive from St Cyr Des Gats) where small rowing boats can be hired (with or without guides). Maps are provided and you can navigate round canal systems to set routes. The canals range from 20m wide to narrow stretches barely wide enough for the boat. All the canals are completely covered with a very distinctive weed giving them the appearance of flat green land, hence the 'Venise Vert' name. At Maillezais there is also a restaurant, souvenir shop and crazy golf course.



Puy de Fou



Puy de Fou is well worth a visit, by day there is a theme park which includes medieval jousting, villages with traditional crafts and actors dressed in the period of the day. The highlight is a twice daily display of falconry. The display is held in an amphitheatre with hawks, falcons and eagles swooping over the crowd and collecting food from the falconers who are dressed in traditional costume.



Île de Ré



Île de Ré is a quiet island off La Rochelle, a new road bridge makes it accessible by car. It is picturesque and has numerous beaches, cafés, towns and parks.
