Well equipped accommodation, lovely outside space with barbecue, beautiful surroundings with opportunities for walking and cycling. A truly relaxing holiday in the unusual setting of a wonderful restored windmill
Well what can i say? An absolutely fantastic property, in a stunning location. We turned up late afternoon and was blown away by the beautiful property we found before us, very very peaceful too. once inside we found it to be perfectly decorated, but keeping within the original detail of the building, we was absolutely blown away at the whole property it really was the perfect honeymoon for us, it really made the whole fairytale experience for us both, and was gutted to leave on our last day.
We have reccomended this property to anyone who has asked about our honeymoon to be fair, and we are looking to come and stay here again for our first wedding anniversary. Only on the motorbike this time. Thanks again to Sally and the team at Moulin 85.. Bam
We stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary in August. The windmill is beautiful, peaceful and in a perfect location, within easy reach of Fontenay Le Compte which is a lovely town with loads of amenities. There were loads of interesting villages and lovely walks nearby, and it is a drivable distance from the stunning Vendee beaches.
There is no tv, but there is a DVD player provided with numerous dvds, though we never used it as the garden and house were both so peaceful we just chilled out and chatted or read. It is such a quiet location we slept really well, not even disturbed by the occasional cow mooing in the distance.
Tha whole place was spotless and had everything we needed, including a bottle of welcome wine which was a lovely surprise.
The Vendee skyline is quite incredible and we spent hours lying outside on the sunbeds late at night looking at the stars. I have never seen such a sky, and my husband took some amazing photos of star trails above the windmill.
If you want a peaceful, romantic retreat I would definitely recommend the windmill and we were so taken with the Vendee it's featuring in our retirement plans!
The windmill is an absolute delight-exactly what we wanted. Beautifully restored and in a fabulous location-lots to see only short drives away. The windmill is very comfortable and has everything you need. Peace and quiet and fantastic sunsets are provided for free!
We had a wonderful stay at the Moulin. Everything we needed was there and it was comfortable, relaxing and beautiful.
The outside area is quiet and there is nobody close to disturb you, it is only a short walk to the village where there is a small restaurant which we didn't have time to visit.
We would thoroughly recommend if you want to stay somewhere away from crowds and heavy civilisation. However you need to prepared to travel to get anywhere.
