Welcome to le Moulin de la Plaine

A two bedroomed gite for 4-6 people, with an 10m x 5m swimming pool, in the Dordogne/Charente border area in the heart of the Perigord Limousin Parc Naturel.

Le Moulin de la Plaine

In an idyllic setting, nestling in a river valley in 15 hectares of meadows and woodland, the group of buildings at La Plaine, c. 17th century, were built as a mill, foundry and forge. The old mill building and millrace are still intact, as is the barn where charcoal was stored and horses were stabled. The forge owner's and manager's houses have been converted into one home. Adjoining this, to the right of the main house in the picture above, is a smaller building which has now been tastefully converted, using traditional materials, into a comfortable holiday home.

La Plaine is totally secluded and and not overlooked. The gite has its own garden area, overlooking the pool, lake and woodland.

There is a 10m x 5m swimming pool, fully alarmed and with a deep end for diving, which gite guests share with the owners.
