The villa has 5 stylish decorated rooms, with large windows, facing the garden and the water. Moulin du Merle is available for groups and can sleep up to 20 people, or even more if you decide to camp on our grounds. There is plenty of communal space but also plenty of private space to retreat.
There are books to read, trees to climb, a swim hole to swim and lots of spaces to relax and enjoy the lazy french country life.
If you need a peaceful quiet place to read, write or relax, there is plenty of space to retreat. The salon, the garden with it's huge trees to sit in the shade. The porch, little terraces. Or the fireplace (inside and outside) to spend time with the other guests or your family.
For the ones who like a bit more activity:
during their holidays: cycling, kayaking, climbing are among the possibilities. There are wines caves and monasteries in the areas and plenty of markets, secondhand markets or museums to visit. The Mill is on the Santiago de Compostella route and we host pilgrims on a regular basis.

Nous aurions tant voulu rester plus longtemps !
Des hôtes discrets, efficaces et sympathiques.
Un très bon repas concocté par notre hôtesse propriétaire.
Un lieu parfait en nombre de pièces et de chambres pour les réunions de grandes familles.
Un jardin superbe que nous n'avons pas pu exploiter malheureusement car le temps ne s'y prêtait pas.
Un endroit où nous voulons absolument retourner.
Comme son nom, notre séjour a été idyllique
Nous avons séjourné au moulin du merle pour le week-end du nouvel an, le cadre est magnifque et notre hôte Gilberthe tout simplement adorable. Je recommande vivement cet endroit autant pour la générosité de son hôte que pour l'enchantement de la maison.
Tout s'est parfaitement bien déroulé pendant ce weekend de nouvel an,
grâce à la bonne communication et la positivité de Barbara, Chloé et
de leurs amis. Je suis toujours heureuse d'héberger un groupe qui
profite un maximum de la maison.
Avec le plus grand plaisir à une prochaine fois
The villa is located in a avery rural area, to which the closest town is 10 kilometers (Clamecy). The Beuvron river runs through the property in which you can swim on warm summer days.
The accommodation is perfect for biking around, walking, discovering the nature, and most of all, relaxing in the garden.
However, there are a few attractions in the neighborhood. In the summer there are flea markets almost every day, and you can go kayaking on the Yonne.
