Change [at] to @

A short drive will take you to the medieval village of Vouvant, (designated one of the prettiest in France) and Mervant Forest with it's walks, cycle tracks, large leisure lake and various other attractions.
This romantic hide away windmill is set just outside a small village. The only noise comes from the church bells that chime hourly.The sound of sheep and a couple of cows in the surrounding fields really emphasises the tranquility of the area.

Built in 1885, this charming property has character and comfort. In 1975 the original workings were removed and the building was changed from a working Windmill into what can only be very loosly termed a residence.

The full renovation includes, mains electricity, mains water, septic tank, new roof made from hand crafted Chestnut tiles, Oak floors, Double glazed Oak windows and shutters, Granite work surfaces in the kitchen and a modern bathroom with large shower cubicle.

The windmill is arranged on four levels, kitchen on the ground floor, upstairs is the cosy living room with wood burning stove, a well equipped bathroom is on level three and the romantic bedroom on the top floor.

There is a good sized garden shed and Barbecue Area (with exterior lighting) from which the wonderful sunsets can be enjoyed. The Moulin is classified as a "Monument Historic" and as such cannot be extended or externally modified.

Situated approximately an hour south of Nantes and an equal distance inland from the seaside town of La Rochelle where you can sample the renowned fresh fish and seafood in the many restaurants located by the beach front. The nearest town to the Moulin is Fontenay Le Comte, the ancient capital of the Vendee.

Paston, Norfolk Coast

R.F.Hough.  Tel: 01263 720298

Price:  £550,000

Stow Mill, situated on the North Norfolk coast, is 500 yds. from the sea in the historic parish of Paston. Within walking distance of Mundesley, it is 20 miles north east of Norwich which has direct rail connections into London.

This property is for sale with the option of a planning permission to convert the mill into a 2 bed ensuite holiday let attached to the existing 3 bedroom house. The purchase price includes the windmill, the house and the established small gift shop at the front of the house which sells souvenirs at this recognised tourist attraction.

3 reception rooms, including sitting room with gas ‘living flame’ fire, dining/day room with multi fuel stove, and a beautiful sun lounge (south facing), plus a study. The kitchen, well fitted with maple Shaker style units, has access to the shop at the front of the property. There is also a shower/cloakroom off the central hall area.

At first floor there are 3 bedrooms, the master with an ensuite, another family bathroom, and a laundry room.

UPVC double glazing windows throughout. Hardwood front door. Gas central heating.

The grounds extend to approx half an acre surrounding the property. There is also a timber constructed fully connected and insulated workshop/office of 370 sq. ft. plus two other sheds.

The windmill was built in 1827 and worked for over 100 years. The building itself has undergone much restoration and is in good order. The planning permission allows for the windmill to be connected to the house, utilising the current kitchen for the use of the mill with the conversion of the shop as a second bed ensuite. The link itself would provide a glazed dining area and lead to the sitting room area within the ground floor of the mill. A new kitchen/diner would be established.
The proposal would return a very sound rental.

Molino del Rey, Andalusia, Southern Spain

Molino del Rey is ideal for all kinds of holidays, workshops & retreats e.g. Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation, etc. With 15 years of dedication, it has been totally hand built by the owners from two ancient water mills, into probably one of the most beautiful venues in Spain.
Set in the still undiscovered wild beauty of Andalucia, the hamlet of Jorox is in a fertile green valley, flanked by orange groves in the Nature Reserve "Sierra de las Nieves", only 50 min. from the tourist resorts of the Costa del Sol and the magical city of Ronda.
A spring of the river "Rio Grande" is born at the entrance of our hamlet. From it the purest of waters pour through our centre, offering bathing facilities whilst surrounded by the wonderful fragrance of mountain flowers.
MAIN HOUSE: 1 Single Room and 7 Twin Rooms (one of which has a double & single bed,) all en-suite, with balconies &  air conditioning.
TWIN DOME & TWIN CABIN: Set in an exclusive little environment in the bottom garden, away from the main living area. These rooms have air conditioning, "Tempura" memory foam beds, terrace areas, and share a large shower plus two WC's.
A single room (fan) next to the restaurant. Use of this room would require using the WC outside the restaurant and sharing a shower in one of the other rooms.
An imaginatively designed pool, has been constructed in harmony with the natural environment of our centre.
Pool-side 14 seater sauna.
The studio is 100m2 with wooden parquet flooring and occupies and extraordinary position, hand-cut out of the mountain, floor to ceiling windows with views across the valley and a door leading into the inner stillness of the caves. The latter serves as natural air conditioning in hot summer months. The studio has incredible acoustics for working with sound, and is fully equipped with yoga props and training materials.
Besides our lovely yoga studio, there is also an aprox. 60m2 wooden decking area.
We are extremely fortunate in having our own caves, particularly appreciated by meditation groups, and for chanting, overtone, Didgeridoo etc. In fact the whole mountain is honeycombed with caves.

MOLINO DEL REY is well situated for day trips by car to Granada with its famous Alhambra, Sevilla one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, Nerja with its famous caves, Cordoba, Gibraltar, Marbella, and of course the delightful city of Ronda. Beautiful walks, hiking, horse riding, closely situated in one of Andalucia's most impressive natural reserves. This huge natural park "Sierra de las Nieves" has been designated a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, and contains the Abies Pinsapo Boissir, the oldest known species of fir tree found in Europe, just five km from our centre.
A spring of the river "Rio Grande" is born at the entrance of our hamlet. From it the purest of waters pour through our centre, offering bathing facilities whilst surrounded by the wonderful fragrance of mountain flowers.
