Villa overview - owner's description
Hidden among vineyards, next to a flowing brook, and only 10km from the medieval town of Uzes, sits Le Moulin Neuf chateau. A large chateau of 5000m².
Hidden among vineyards, next to a flowing brook, and only 10km from the medieval town of Uzes, sits Le Moulin Neuf chateau. A large chateau of 5000m², it is made up of five independent living areas with fully-equipped kitchens, 14 double or triple rooms, nine bathrooms, 12 WCs and sofa beds for up to 10 extra people, if required.
The beautiful garden grounds contain picnic tables, a barbecue and children's playground, all surrounded by cypresses, mulberry trees and umbrella pines. Within Le Moulin Neuf itself, there is a central courtyard with a circular swimming pool (8m diameter and with central alarm so safe for children) and tiled terrace with lounge chairs. Private parking and bike room are also provided.
Le Moulin Neuf has a rich history. It was built as a water-mill in the 18th century and later turned into silkworm breeding and wine-growing farm (look out for the hundred year old mulberry trees which once fed the silk worms!) Renovated and decorated in 2002, the house is perfect for large groups and families all year round: with a mezzanine living room overlooking the pool and terrace, central heating throughout and a semi-industrial kitchen, which enables cooking for 40+ people.
