Message From The Seller

Le Vieux Moulin

It was certainly a serendipity moment that led us to buy our dream home 19 years ago. We had spent a few days viewing properties but we hadn’t seen anything that was right for us. At the end of one of those days, we had a chance conversation with a couple at the checkout in a supermarket who told us that their house was on the market. The next day we made arrangements to view it. As soon as we turned the corner and the house came into sight we knew instantly that this was the one! It was definitely le coup de foudre. People who have visited or stayed here comment on the tranquillity of the surroundings and the warm, welcoming, comfortable and cosy feeling of the house. We have been so very happy here and have made some wonderful memories in our little corner of paradise. We hope that the future owners will be as happy as we have been.
