Perrusson Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1, 3 & 3 bedroom self-catering cottages with shower-rooms, sleeps 12

Le Moulin de Boutineau and its three charming fully restored cottages (for gites or chambres d'hotes) lies in the tranquil countryside heart of the Loire Valley - but is not remote, just 2 kms from the famous medieval town of Loches, with its own chateau, restaurants, café’s, bars, shops and lively twice-weekly market.

Spend idyllic family days relaxing around a sparkling 12x6 metre heated swimming-pool with nearby children's play area or explore the 15 acres of magnificent tree-lined grounds, fields and woods surrounding this peaceful 17thC watermill. If you want to fish there are carp (15-40lbs) in a glorious private two acre lake. The three delightful oak-beamed cottages sleeping 6, 4+1 and a romantic 2 can also accommodate an exclusive party of 12 and all have their own garden/patio and BBQ area, as well as cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, TV/DVD/stereo CD, full central heating and access to washing/drying facilities, the swimming pool, hot-tub, bicycles, petanque court and table-tennis.

Fishing at Le Moulin de Boutineau: There is a glorious, private two acre lake where you can fish for carp (mirror & common 15-40lbs) plus roach, tench and others. It has level, easy walking access around the entire perimeter which is lined with a wide variety of mature trees, flowers and the abundant wildlife includes kingfishers and red squirrels. It is an idyllic, tranquil setting for fishing. There are six marked swims (max. 4 anglers) and we also have a range of all the correct carp fishing equipment for hire as well as a selection of quality baits available. Our beautiful, pristine fish will give you quite a fight, but are just for catching, photographing and releasing again - NOT for eating!!

Cost of Fishing: During the peak 2014 holiday season from 12 July to 30 August the cost is 160 euros per angler per week or 50 euros per day. During the rest of the rental season (1 March to 12 July & 30 Aug to 8 Nov) the special price of a weeks fishing rights is only 80 euros per angler per week, making it a great combination of value, comfort, accessibility and privacy. Please contact us for details on our special loire fishing holidays website which has much more information and many photographs of the fish and lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed our stay at your beautiful Pecheurs gite last week - although one week was not enough! On arrival it looks so beautiful with all the flowers, and the fact you came out to welcome us rather than just leave a key made such a difference. You were always there with great advice and suggestions if needed, but never intrusive. Jude, the meal you cooked for us was the best meal we had all week - absolutely superb! We have some great memories of a fabulous holiday, and hope to visit again.

Awesome Holiday

  • 5 of 5
One of the best holidays we have ever had. Julian and Jude are great hosts and looked after us brilliantly.

The fishing was great and with the mix of the lake and the pool there's something to suit everyone.

The cottage was perfect for the 5 of us clean and well equipped.

We had a few of Jude's fabulous meals during the 2 weeks and would thoroughly recommend them.

All in all we had a fantastic time and will definitely return.

A perfect week.

  • 5 of 5
Whilst planning the review of our holiday we have browsed through previous comments and found that our words have already been emphasised very clearly. Those of you considering booking a holiday at the Moulin - it really is as good as people have described.
The welcome was warm and genuine. Jude and Julian truly want you to have a good holiday and will do whatever they can to make sure that you do. At the end of our holiday we both agreed that we couldn't have improved our holiday in any way. We had 2 fantastic meals cooked by Jude and can't recommend her hospitality enough. We chose to eat on Jude and Julian's veranda at the back of their house overlooking their garden making it a very special occasion. The delicious aperitif from Julian has resulted in us bringing back 3 bottles of Giffard liqueur! We also asked for a restaurant recommendation in Loches, and Jude not only recommended a great place (The Gerbe d'Or), but made the booking for us ensuring that we had the best table and excellent service.
The Moulin is set in a peaceful rural area, but just 5 mins from Loches where there is easy parking, a street market and lots of historical things to see - the Keep is highly recommended. The pool is amazing, meticulously maintained with ample shade under the apple trees for those really sunny times. Jude described the Four a pain as a wendy house for adults, and that is a perfect description. It is small and compact but plenty big enough for 2. The steps up to the mezzanine bedroom are not for the faint hearted, but totally manageable and in keeping with the property.
Overall, the property is peaceful and a treat to stay in and we look forward to a return visit.

Great Holiday Had By All.

  • 4 of 5
We were a party of 6 fishermen(I use that description lightly!)so in fact we rented both the Pecheurs and Jardinier Gites together.

The location is fantastic near the picturesque town of Loches and surrounded by beautiful ,tranquil countryside.
Our main aim was to fish the beautiful lake,and although not prolific,we did have a couple of 30lbs+,the largest being 37lbs,4 carp in the 15-25lbs and a couple of reasonable Tench and Roach.

The proximity of the lake to the gites and the ease of access to the water made the fishing very easy and comfortable,and I am sure we would have had more success if the weather conditions had been a little more favorable or perhaps our skills a little better!!!

Julian and Jude are excellent hosts,nothing too much trouble.,We enjoyed two delicious meals cooked by Jude and some sublime local wines selected by Julian.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay,relaxing in the beautiful courtyard with a beer or two,sitting fishing by the lake watching the local wildlife or swimming in the wonderful pool...

A great place for a holiday,heartily recommended for all.

Le Moulin de Boutineau lies in Indre-et-Loire, part of the 'Centre' region of France. This is the royal historical heartland of Touraine renowned for its fine wines, delicious goat's cheese and near-perfect French accent!

The nearest major supermarket and superb patisserie are just 5 minutes drive while equally close, Loches (just 2kms away) with its maze of cobbled streets, dungeon & chateau is a magnificently preserved medieval town with big, colourful country markets every Weds & Sat with amazing selections of cheeses, breads, pastries, sausages and fresh local produce.

Most of the prettiest and most rewarding Loire chateaux are within 30 minutes drive including Chenonceau, Chinon, Valencay, Villandry, Amboise, Usse and Azay-le-Rideau and many hold summer 'son et lumiere' or music shows.

Also within easy reach are golf, tennis, horse-riding and walking or cycling in the beautiful Indre valley or extensive Loches Forest, while the zoo with its pandas at nearby St Aignan is arguably the best in France.
