Rarely have I seen such a quality of restoration; simply outstanding. No expense has been spared and the result is an amazing property offering a great use of space in an idyllic location. The Moulin is divided into 3 dwellings, which can also be one complete dwelling if required, with an overall habitable surface of 335m2. The principle apartment benefits from windows on all aspects which capture the light and the river views perfectly, with a vaulted open plan kitchen/living area (85m2) and a marvellous bridge which links the upstairs mezzanine to the 2 bedrooms. There is a further bedroom en-suite on the ground floor. Gite 1 follows on and has a 75m2 open plan kitchen/living area, with wc on the ground floor and two large bedrooms with bathroom on the first floor, and the second gite follows the same layout albeit with a smaller floor surface (50m2). Added to this on the lower ground floor there is an open area measuring 85m2 which houses to one end the completely renovated water mill wheel and mechanism, which generates electricity and an income from EDF in the region of 20k euros per annum, plus a reduced rate for personal consumption making electricity bills very manageable. The further income generated by the gites (30k euros per annum minimum) makes this not only a beautiful place to live, but also a solid business opportunity, with the added bonus of a large reception room that is used for wedding receptions, birthday celebrations, and all family venues which generates further income. The Moulin is set on 5200m2 of land, and there is also a small island with its own small beach on the water's edge which is just idyllic. Located 10 minutes from a château market town offering all amenities, 40 minutes from Tours airport, and only 40 minutes from the city of Le Mans. This is set in an ideal location that give easy access to every day essential living.
10 Minutes from the market town of Le Lude
The town of Le Lude is a typically French market town lying in the elegant winelands of the Loire. It is especially renowned for its fabulous castle, the Château du Lude. The Château du Lude is an absolutely superb example of the fairytale castles of the Loire, and is really worth a viewing. Le Lude benefits from a good climate, with moderate temperatures and plenty of sunshine in the summer time. It is a lively town with a good collection of amenities. There are all the shops you could hope to find, including wonderfully French boulangeries. Then there are supermarkets and all the usual service industries too. Every Thursday sees the arrival of a traditional outdoor market, and on certain summer evenings the town also puts on atmospheric night markets. Situated close to the famed Le Mans motor racing circuit, and also to the city of Angers, this of course is the famous Loire valley wine domains and vineyards, and only 40 minutes from Tours airport, just perfect to come and see and to taste the wines!

MORE ABOUT THE AREA:
Pays de la Loire and the Sarthe Valley
Located in the Western part of the department of Sarthe, lies the wonderful Sarthe Valley, which offers charm, tranquillity, good wine and food in abundance. The Sarthe region needs very little introduction, everyone will know of 'Le Mans 24 hours', but the Sarthe has so much more to offer than speed and cars. The overlooked Cité Plantagenêt (Old City) of Le Mans, the Benedictine Abbey of Solemsmes, the town of Sable with its 19th century castle and marina, the small character town of Parce-sur-Sarthe, the stunning earthenware town of Malicorne-sur- Sarthe, and the impressive château at Le Lude. The Sarthe and the Loir Rivers run through the picturesque countryside, and there is a particularly rich and varied architectural heritage to enjoy. The Sarthe Valley offers everything in step with your lifestyle, whether it be golf, cycling, swimming, restaurants, fishing, theatre, Le Mans 24 hours, manmade beaches, country walks, forests, or just relaxing, it has everything for everyone. Sarthe specialities are really worth tasting! The wines from The Loire Valley remain relatively undiscovered and are absolutely delicious, try these with the local specialty 'rillettes' and perfect crusty bread!
These are all the reasons to come and discover the Wonderful Sarthe Valley!
