We spend about half our year in England and half in this wonderful property in the Loire Valley. The minute we saw this property we felt total peace and tranquility.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Owner chose Monts
We had been holidaying in this region of France for over 20 years. We took over a year looking at many properties but when we saw this one, there was no doubt in our minds. No amount of photographs can possibly describe this wonderful hideaway. The minute you step foot inside the gates the outside world just fades away.
What makes this Apartment unique
You can be very active, this is an ideal base to visit the nearby chateaux and the great wine trails, but you can also relax and unwind in the beautiful grounds of the property. The adventurous can kayak up the River or take the bikes on the many cycle routes in the area.

We loved it too!
We stayed just over a week in late July in the downstairs apartment which is very comfortable and has everything you need. Each of the two apartments has its own outside furniture, BBQ etc, which you can set up anywhere in the grounds.
One of the things that could have been a problem was insects. With the amount of water you would expect mosquitoes. But not a one. It seems the swifts, bats and dragonflies hoover them all up.
Other reviewers have said it all so we just want to repeat: Alison and Peter are wonderful! You arrive as tenants and leave as friends. The grounds are astonishing, well worth exploring either during the day or in the evening, searching for wildlife. Lots to do in the area, including a number of lovely walks, details of which were supplied by the very good Tourist Office in Montbazon.
Like the previous reviewer, we too have never stayed anywhere like this before and we will certainly be back!
A perfect holiday.
Alison and Peter were wonderful hosts and their property has the most relaxing and interesting grounds of any property we have ever stayed in during 45 years of coming to France.
The Mill on the Indre
This property was even better than its description. Very peaceful and beautiful but not isolated. The accommodation was clean and very comfortable with a number of outside sitting and eating areas both in shade or sun, whatever you wanted. The owners were always willing to help you enjoy and get the most from your holiday, having a wealth of local knowledge. We enjoyed Tours on flower market day and the many beautiful villages along the Indre. And of course we enjoyed exploring the islands and bridges on the property and looking out for wild life. It is a very special place.
Location, location , location !!
Such a beautiful property in the midst of so many great, beautiful chateaus and wineries. Visit the market and indulge in all the yummy local fare. Or just hang out on the grounds. Lots of walking paths and the family border collies for playmates. As the Moulin is (obviously) on the rive there is also plenty of water recreation available. Restful or adventurous; take your pick. Lovely vacation spot!
Immer wieder hin!
Wir waren schon mehrfach dort. Es hat uns immer sehr gut gefallen. Wir werden wieder hinfahren. Das Anwesen ist bestens geeignet für diejenigen, die dem Trubel entfliehen wollen. Für Familien mit Kindern sehr geeignet . Es gibt immer irgend etwas in der Natur zu beobachten, daher Fernglas nicht vergessen. Die Chefin verrät Ihnen auch, wo es das leckerste Baguette gibt.
