Stay in a watermill, the Moulin de la Roche in Tiffauges

Le Moulin de la Roche - TiffaugesGîte and guest house - 5*

Philippe and Catherine Maindron decided to transform an old watermill that had been abandoned for years into a luxury gîte and guest house. Inside is a combination of old and contemporary stones with one or two very modern touches. New York City is the new beating heart of the mill. A monumental mural of Times Square decorates the stairwell in industrial metal. The round bed is perfectly located in the king-sized wedding suite...

The exterior is a small corner of paradise. Nature has been generous... a harmonious river meanders lazily... Crossed by a small Roman bridge...  A wooded hill offers a pleasant setting for the complex.
