Where the borders of the French provinces of Maine and Touraine meet, some forty kilometres from Le-Mans and from Tours. Tours-Val-de-Loire airport is 30 minutes away. Motorways from these urban centres. TGV train stations in Le-Mans, Tours and Vendôme (50 km away).
Five kilometres, from a small town with all amenities (market, shops, schools and a sixth form college as well as cultural and sports centres).
The Loir Valley has a mild climate; the soil and vine varieties encourage the production of wines such as Coteaux-du-Loir (with an AOC appellation since 1948) and Jasnières (with AOC appellation since 1937). Twenty kilometres further north is Bercé Forest, a national forest spanning more than 5,000 hectares, renowned for its oak plantations.
This rectangular mill, spanning three levels, is accessed via a metal stairway. The roofs are covered with Trélazé slate and feature copper crockets and guttering.

Wood and iron skylights. The openings let in copious amounts of light. Underfloor heating is provided courtesy of a heat pump. A lantern is suspended on the south gable wall, at the entrance to the property. It is a replica of those in the Royal Palace at Reims. A greenhouse adjoins the west side.
The rectangular orangery spans two levels, facing the meadows, the millrace and the rising sun. This area can be used for independently accommodating friends or family.

The garden, the orchard and the millrace
The water is deviated on the east side, coming from the meadow, in order to supply the mill via its millrace. Said deviated waters form an island on which are the garden and orchard. It is accessed via walkways. It is relaxing to take a break by the side of these flowing channels. Thick hedges of horse chestnut have been planted on the property. Morel mushrooms are there for the picking in the springtime.
A discreet, colourful haven amidst verdant grasslands. This superb, rural property appeals courtesy of its climate, plant and architectural features. A natural refuge with controlled, flowing water and a magical light. An ideal setting for horse-riding enthusiasts who have a wooden farm shed and a meadow for letting their mounts roam freely and can go trekking through the surrounding countryside. Structural works and those to install modern-day comforts have been carried out according to good trade practices. The choice of materials and facilities was made in consultation with heritage craftsmen with quality as a priority. New owners can move into this property straightaway without having to schedule any works. This authentic countryside is less than two and a half hours from Paris.
