The Mill at Moulin Drap is a newly renovated stone watermill featuring the original millstone in the lounge area. It is in a beautiful, private setting beside the river and very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern conveniences. There is a private Patio area with a Gas Barbeque and is a sun trap in the afternoons with shade from the trees that line the riverbank.
The Mill would suit a family of four or two couples.
There are two properties on the site but they are approx 200 metres apart so each retains wonderful privacy.
The Mill is a two bedroom Gite that sleeps four people. The downstairs is a large open plan area comprising a kitchen/diner and lounge. There is also a shower room and WC. The lounge area is spacious and comfortable. Equipped with a stereo and a selection of CD's it also has an MP3 player port so you can plug in your own music (ipod etc). There is satelite TV that plays most UK freeview channels. The lounge also has a wood burning stove and the original mill stone, with stairs leading up to the first floor.
The first floor has two bedrooms and a WC. Bedroom one has a queen size (200x160cm) bed and bedroom two has two singles. The Mill is adjacent to the river with access to the island created by the millstream. There are French doors from the lounge to the outside with a very private patio area that overlooks the river and old paddock. There is a gas BBQ, parasol, table and chairs for al fresco dining.
The Mill and the other property, the Miller's House, are ideal if you want to share your holiday with family and friends - take the two houses together to provide accommodation for up to 12 people in un-crowded, private and spacious surroundings.
The mill is set in the Brenne National Park, with hundreds of lakes for fishing, swimming, watersports, cycling, horseriding and walking. The Creuse valley is delightful with many local attractions. There are Chateaux and museums to visit and the Loire valley and Futuroscope are only 1.5 hours away.
The Village (Prissac) has a wonderful Boulangerie, a small Boucherie, a Pharmacy, a restaurant, cafe/bar and a post office. The nearest supermarket is 10 minutes away in the beautiful medieval town of St Benoit du Sault. Argenton sur Creuse is a 20 minute drive and boasts a fabulous Saturday covered market, numerous restaurants, bars and shops. Also within a 20 minute drive is Le Blanc which is a bustling market town adjacent to the Creuse river where you can hire canoes and catch sight of the lovely rural countryside and if you're lucky, one or two playful kingfishers.
