Moulin de la Ronde with its toes in the river Vienne is an outstanding place of natural beauty and a haven for wildlife. It is 5 kilometers from the medieval town of Chauvigny and just 20 kilometers from the well preserved city of Poitiers. Moulin de la Ronde is an historic flour mill and guests will be accommodated in the Old Grainstore, a large, open plan space with oak floors and an oak beamed ceiling. It is furnished to a high standard reflecting our time in Asia. You will have open access to our beautiful private island in the river and all the grounds of this place of outstanding beauty. If you are looking for will find it here. La Ronde is especially good for couples or solo adventurers /business travellers. Children are welcome but you must be very mindful of the river. We suggest it is less appropriate for people with walking disabilties.

The space

This is a fully converted grain store with oak floors and beams. It is a very spacious apartment and is furnished to a high standard reflecting our time in Asia. The general reaction from our visitors over the past ten years is ' wow' when they walk in. It overlooks the river, our island and the courtyard.

Guest access

We make the entire property available to our guests staying in The Old Grainstore...island, courtyard, riverside locations, swimming in the millpond, canoe, kayak, picnic tables, gas BBQ and meadow.

Interaction with guests

We meet the guests personally and as we live in the Old Mill Cottage we're normally available if guests need any kind of help. Otherwise, we stay out of the way:)

Other things to note

We have some lovely walks, excellent restaurants, delightful markets and great food in abundance. The fishing in the millpond is without charge. We guarantee there are plenty in there. We don't guarantee that you'll catch them:) They're crafty!

I'm a retired high school Principal, Headteacher , Director...we get called different things in different places! Gill, my wife, and I live in an old mill in France. We're busy renovating it. I enjoy DIY, watching sport, playing a bit of golf and travel. Gill likes gardening and crafting, reading and she sings with the local choir . Gill's an excellent cook so we enjoy food and drink. Hard not to in France! Both our children are married to. Americans, one living in London the other in Dallas. We've got a gite at our French place and an apartment in Salisbury, England in addition to Koh (URL HIDDEN) we like travel and different cultures. We've got over 10 years experience of letting properties and providing holidays...but we're new to Airbnb so thought we'd give it a try. We hope you'll give us a try too and we promise not to let you down!
Ps Did I really forget to say that we have two adorable grandsons! Love those boys.
