The Moulin is set, just outside a small village. The only noise comes from the Church bells that chime hourly. The sound of cows and a couple of sheep in the surrounding fields really emphasises the tranquility of the area.
St Cyr des Gats has a Cafe / Bar, Restaurant, Depot de pain (bread), Post Office, Church and Hairdressers. A small Supermarket (Spar), Cash point, Butchers, Chemist and Boulangerie / Patisserie can be found in La Calliere, 6 kms away.
Situated within an hour of La Rochelle, you can sample the renowned fresh fish and seafood in the many restaurants located on the beach front. The nearest town to the Moulin is Fontenay Le Comte, the ancient capital of the Vendee, with it's weekend market. Spend your hard earned cash in the delightful shops and boutiques.
The Windmill is arranged over four floors, a lovely modern kitchen with granite work surface, ceramic hob, grill / microwave, fridge / freezer and a breakfast table is situated in the basement.
A curved wrought iron staircase leads up to the living area, furnished with two leather easy chairs and houses a wood burning stove to warm up chilly spring or autumn evenings.
The original wooden staircase rises to the second floor landing and a beautiful modern bathroom, with large shower cubicle, basin and WC. Onwards and upwards, a wrought iron staircase rises, quite sharply, to the bedroom with double bed and a beautiful view.
Outside there is a BBQ area with a sheltered table and chairs, the outlook from the patio is of farmland with distant treelined views. The evenings provide stunning sunsets and clear starry skies.
