Country house overview - owner's description
At Le Moulin, you will find peace and tranquillity, yet you are within easy reach of the Normandy beaches, Swiss Normandy, with rock climbing, paragliding, riding, water rafting, fishing etc,
Monet's garden, Paris and Eurodisney are all within a 3 hour drive.
The House - From the front garden you may enter the house through the breakfast room which comfortably seats six, the breakfast bar a further four. French doors to the South offer an open aspect across the fields to La Dives - a National river which forms our easterly perimeter. From this room, a spiral staircase serves the private bureau of your host. There is a large hot water tank in the anti room leading from this room. The water is heated by electricity at night; it can be supplemented during the day.
The adjacent kitchen is fitted with electric hob, oven and microwave. In typical French fashion the extractor hood protrudes over the kitchen units; it is made of hardwood and is somewhat heavy on the head! There is a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and all normal small appliances and kitchen utensils. User manuals are in small cupboard adjacent to the broom cupboard.
The dining room has a double aspect over the front garden. It easily seats eight. In the sideboard are table-cloths, place mats and dining utensils. The wood burning fire is seldom used as the central heating is more than adequate. Through the exit door, steps lead down to patio 'apéritif' and the front garden. There is a gate leading to our private river, jetty and the start of the 'Beat the Bounds' walk.
The sitting room, with French doors, is a beautiful place to while away a few hours listening to the river cascading over the mill. In colder weather there is nothing more homely than sitting by the log fire. Logs can be found behind the walled garden (kitchen side) and sticks in the cycle store beside the garage.
For the more active, the games room offers snooker and darts; backgammon, chess, drafts, pinball and cards are also available. If you do take from the bar - we suspect you will prefer not - we ask you to replenish accordingly. A thermostat for controlling the (LPG) central heating is located here.
On the first floor there is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each with double aspect to the front garden. A further double bedroom has its own shower/WC, and another double bedroom has an inter connecting dressing room. Duvets and pillows are supplied, not so bed linen. There are two fully fitted bathrooms on this floor.
The Outdoors - The fenced garden is for your sole enjoyment; beyond the Country Code applies. The front garden enjoys the mid day sun. The barbeque is located on the patio within the rear, larger garden. The fields are for your enjoyment although you may have to share them with the cows. Treated kindly they will not impose upon your freedom to enjoy the rest of the island. If in doubt, you may wish to ‘beat the bounds’ on the river side of the bared wire fence; be cautious because the walk is narrow in places. However this is something not to be missed. You may also wish to cross the weir at the southern end of Riverside Walk - beside the green gate, across the field and along the tow path between the two rivers. Here you will find our wilderness; in season it will be full of Snowdrops.
Access to the garage is outside to the rear. Bicycles are for your use, also gardening tools for those with green fingers - you are welcome to potter.
Le Moulin loves people. Many guests return time and again - our greatest compliment? It's like coming home again! (Mr and Mrs L Pyper)
