3 hours from Paris in the midst of the Touraine region
Loches, INDRE-ET-LOIRE center-val-de-loire 37600 FR


3 hours from Paris by car via the A10 motorway. 40 minutes from Tours with its TGV train station, putting the French capital just 55 minutes away, and its international airport (90-minute flights to London).
The sub-prefecture of Loches, 15 minutes away, has all shops and amenities as well as two weekly markets. The mill is on the outskirts of a village which has the main local shops as well as a very good restaurant. A little, tree-lined alleyway leads to the gates of this fully enclosed property.


This 19th century property comprises a group of completely renovated buildings set out around an interior landscaped courtyard. A first house is in pristine condition. A second building houses an indoor swimming pool. A gallery links the swimming pool to the mill which forms the main residence and is also completely renovated. This property further comprises a large barn, the outside of which has been completely restored, a little old vine-grower’s cottage and a carport.
These buildings are set in almost 2 hectares of landscaped wooded parklands, crossed by a river.

The mill

This mill, fully renovated in 1998, resembles a long, local farmhouse comprising a ground floor with an upstairs under the slopes of the roof. The facades are made of pointed exposed freestone and stone. The roof is covered with traditional tiles.
Standing alongside a river, the mill still has all of its mechanism which, starting with the wheel, is in perfect working order.

Ground floor
The front door opens into a little gallery leading to an indoor swimming pool installed in its own building. It also provides access to a dining room and a lounge with its dressed stone fireplace, in good working order, and its oak ceiling beams. This floor also includes a fully fitted kitchen, a bedroom with its own shower room and separate toilet, a linen room, a shower room and a toilet with a wash-hand basin. A machine room houses the boiler and the mill’s fully operational mechanism. There are floor tiles throughout this level which has underfloor central heating.
First floor
An oak wood stairway goes up to a landing providing access to a shower room with a toilet, a bedroom with a cupboard and another bedroom with its own shower room. On the left-hand side of the landing are a study, two large bedrooms, a shower room and a toilet.

The guest house

This guest house is totally independent from the main residence. It consists of a house as well as several bedrooms with shower rooms.

Ground floor
One side of the ground floor comprises an entrance door opening into a living room with lounge and dining room areas, a fully fitted kitchen and a toilet. A second entrance door provides access to two bedrooms with shower rooms and toilets.
First floor
Upstairs, above the living room, are two bedrooms and a shower room with a toilet. The second entrance provides access to a second stairway going up via a landing to two bedrooms with shower room and separate toilet, as well as a small linen room.

The indoor swimming pool

Facing east-west, the indoor swimming pool can be reached from the guest house and opens on to several terraces. It measures 7.5x3.5 m and is heated via an economical heat pump. The building, with a central light well and large picture windows, is extremely luminous. It is also soundproofed. Near to the swimming pool is a small, fitted kitchen, a changing room, a shower room and a separate toilet.

The barn

The outside of the barn is in pristine condition as the roof has been redone and the walls re-rendered. It spans a spacious floor surface area for those wishing to convert it.
It is currently used for storage purposes and as an attic. A covered terrace, behind the barn, overlooks the river and is used for storing wood.

The annex buildings

An old vine-grower’s cottage on the property has been preserved and a carport has been created to accommodate four cars.

The parklands

The buildings’ immediate surroundings include a central landscaped courtyard, flower beds, a vegetable garden, an orchard, an islet on the river, a weir, the fully operational mill wheel, enclosed plots as well as grasslands.
This property is immaculately kept.

Our opinion

The exposed beams of the roofing framework and the ceilings bear witness to the age of these fully renovated buildings. The river runs past at their feet. The mechanism and the wheel of the old mill are still in good working order. The only noise to be heard comes from the water flowing past and the wind in the trees. The natural surroundings form a protective companion. No works would be required in order to run a bed & breakfast or a holiday accommodation rental unit business which would, in fact, be enhanced by the current facilities that include an indoor swimming pool, an economical heating system provided by a heat pump, sensor activated lighting, a centralised vacuum system and burglar-proof glazing.
