Rental description

Visit an old 75sqm watermill in northwestern France that has found second life hosting travellers with a high sense of respect for the environment. Set on 5,000sqm of land, you will be able to lounge on the sunny terrace overlooking the Trézenne River while the younger ones can enjoy the sandpit and the swings. The whole family will also love to wander along the banks and discover kingfishers, salamanders and squirrels looking for hazelnuts! Together with a renovation meeting ecological standards, Cécile and Christophe have brought their own personal touch to this charming, comfortable gite which is ideal for a family holiday. Step into your new holiday home and appreciate, upstairs, one room with a double bed plus two bunk beds behind a partition, and another with a single bed. There is also a 2-seater sofa bed in the living room, to accommodate two extra people if necessary.

Sustainability criteria

Your hosts have opted for eco friendly solutions whilst renovating in 2011 – e.g. wall covering in lime mortar and wood shavings. Perhaps one of the more original solutions is the roof insulation made from duck feathers, an energy saver!

It was unthinkable to install classic heating systems in the mill. It is equipped with a solar water boiler and a pellet stove instead. The grey waters are distilled through treatment plants.

Finally, the task of recycling green waste is left to Fleurette and Marronnette – the two hens that are only too happy to gulp leftovers and peels. In the morning, you’ll be happy to find one or two organic eggs in the hen house! And regarding wild animal life, the site is engaged with the Ligue Pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO – League for the Protection of Birds), making the place a sanctuary. You will also notice little bright flowers dotting the grass here and there: they are fritillaries or “mission bells”.
