Le Four a Pain: Centre-Loire Valley Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 64791ha
'The Bread Oven' is a romantic, picturesque old stone building set away on its own complete with masses of character, including oak beams, a terracotta tiled floor and the beautifully restored original oven. No, you don't have to cook in it, just turn on the feature lighting! Outside, the lovely terrace/garden is centred around a mysterious 'roll-right stone' and has a BBQ, table, chairs and parasol.
The Ground Floor has a picture window overlooking an orchard and the swimming pool and the comfortable living/dining area has a cafe table and chairs and a sofa to watch DVDs on TV or listen to the stereo CD. The adjoining kitchen has an electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. The shower-room is compact and newly fitted.
Set above on a galleried wooden mezzanine floor, up some fairly steep steps is a double bed with a window overlooking a magnificent, mature walnut tree. The cottage has full electric central heating and is an ideal and extremely popular choice for two people.
About the Property
1, 3 & 3 bedroom self-catering cottages with shower-rooms, sleeps 12
Spend idyllic family days relaxing around a sparkling 12x6 metre heated swimming-pool with nearby children's play area or explore the 15 acres of magnificent tree-lined grounds, fields and woods surrounding this peaceful 17thC watermill. If you want to fish there are carp (15-40lbs) in a glorious private two acre lake. The three delightful oak-beamed cottages sleeping 6, 4+1 and a romantic 2 can also accommodate an exclusive party of 12 and all have their own garden/patio and BBQ area, as well as cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, TV/DVD/stereo CD, full central heating and access to washing/drying facilities, the swimming pool, hot-tub, bicycles, petanque court and table-tennis.
Fishing at Le Moulin de Boutineau: There is a glorious, private two acre lake where you can fish for carp (mirror & common 15-40lbs) plus roach, tench and others. It has level, easy walking access around the entire perimeter which is lined with a wide variety of mature trees, flowers and the abundant wildlife includes kingfishers and red squirrels. It is an idyllic, tranquil setting for fishing. There are six marked swims (max. 4 anglers) and we also have a range of all the correct carp fishing equipment for hire as well as a selection of quality baits available. Our beautiful, pristine fish will give you quite a fight, but are just for catching, photographing and releasing again - NOT for eating!!
Cost of Fishing: During the peak 2014 holiday season from 12 July to 30 August the cost is 160 euros per angler per week or 50 euros per day. During the rest of the rental season (1 March to 12 July & 30 Aug to 8 Nov) the special price of a weeks fishing rights is only 80 euros per angler per week, making it a great combination of value, comfort, accessibility and privacy. Please contact us for details on our special loire fishing holidays website which has much more information and many photographs of the fish and lake.

Le Moulin de Boutineau lies in Indre-et-Loire, part of the 'Centre' region of France. This is the royal historical heartland of Touraine renowned for its fine wines, delicious goat's cheese and near-perfect French accent!
The nearest major supermarket and superb patisserie are just 5 minutes drive while equally close, Loches (just 2kms away) with its maze of cobbled streets, dungeon & chateau is a magnificently preserved medieval town with big, colourful country markets every Weds & Sat with amazing selections of cheeses, breads, pastries, sausages and fresh local produce.
Most of the prettiest and most rewarding Loire chateaux are within 30 minutes drive including Chenonceau, Chinon, Valencay, Villandry, Amboise, Usse and Azay-le-Rideau and many hold summer 'son et lumiere' or music shows.
Also within easy reach are golf, tennis, horse-riding and walking or cycling in the beautiful Indre valley or extensive Loches Forest, while the zoo with its pandas at nearby St Aignan is arguably the best in France.
Other Activities: micro-lighting
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We moved to France with our then 6-year-old daughter Saskia in 2005 after falling in love with Le Moulin de Boutineau a year earlier, a wreck of a watermill and overgrown grounds left abandoned for 10 years. It was a huge step and massive change to permanently leave rural Leicestershire in England for a French countryside lifestyle near the medieval market town of Loches in the beautiful Loire Valley, but we have never regretted it for a moment (well possibly for one or two moments during the lengthy restoration work when some thought we were completely mad!). However, we had a vision of what it all could be and thankfully our guests - many of whom keep returning - seem to love it too.
Why the Owner Chose Perrusson, France:
"It's just all so much better than in the photos - they can never quite convey the lovely atmosphere of the place" is probably the comment we have heard from our guests most often over the years. Our aim was always to offer a really good quality holiday cottages where the men had an option to carp fish - and catch big ones - close-by on a picturesque lake, but it would still be a great holiday for their wives/partners/family & friends who would enjoy the sunshine, large pool, BBQ's, lovely grounds and nearby town and chateau's equally as much.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Beautiful grounds - a wonderful specimen carp-fishing lake with 12 acres of accessible, peaceful woodland, mature trees, orchards and streams shared with kingfishers, buzzards, red squirrels and deer. The clear air and warm, starry night skies with owls but no light pollution. We added the sparkling 12x6 metre heated swimming pool and can provide that special bottle of much-underrated Loire wine that makes an evening meal in the courtyard a perfect memory for so many of our visitors.
