Fantastic stay at Le Moulin de Buchaud
My husband and I spent four wonderful nights at Le Moulin de Buchaud in October. The house made for the perfect spot from which to explore the beautiful countryside and to visit some of the interesting destinations in the area. Peter and Rebecca have done a remarkable job of restoring the farm with every attention to detail while retaining the historic charm--old-world ambiance with every modern convenience. Excellent Wifi reception, satellite TV with English-speaking channels, and good selection of dvd's. We loved the extra details such as the towel warmer in the bathroom, welcome basket upon arrival, cozy woodstove, binder with suggestions for towns, restaurants, and super-markets in the area, and brochures of local attractions . The house was roomy, well-appointed, spotless, and very comfortable. The hosts offered peace and solitude, knowing just when to appear with helpful advice. Communication was excellent, with super-fast response time. Highlights of our stay included walking along the river at the base of the property, visiting the quaint medieval town of Fougeres, finding some treasures at the brocante/antique market in Bagnoles de l'Orne-Normandie, and going to the Cadre Noir equestrian show in Saumur (thank you, Rebecca, for helping us book our tickets!)--we even visited the very unique Musee du Champignon ('mushroom museum') in Saumur before the show. Tip for arriving at the house if your navigation system is like the one in our rental car and has trouble recognizing 'Le Moulin de Buchaud': enter in 'Le Petit Buchaud' or 'Le Grand Buchaud' instead, and that will bring you right next door to your destination.
We will forever treasure our time at Le Moulin de Buchaud--many thanks for a truly memorable and relaxing visit!
