The property sits in a 1-acre field leading down to the River Gartempe, where you can fish, or just sit and watch the wildlife, including coypus and kingfishers, and the river flowing by.
Overlooking the river is a large patio with furniture and a BBQ. This can be directly accessed from the day-room comprising kitchen, dining area and lounge. Wi-Fi. There is a separate sitting room which leads to a ground floor double bedroom with shower room en-suite.
Upstairs there is a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a second shower room.
Accessed from outside there is a utility room with a sink and laundry facilities.
A 5-minute walk takes you to the village of Folles, with its bar/restaurant, hairdressers, church and post office, while a short drive takes you to the towns of Bessines sur Gartempe and La Souterraine with their many facilities.
About a 10 minute car drive will take you to Pont Lac de l’Age, a lake which is good for walks, picnics and fishing. Further afield, Saint Pardoux is a very large lake, where parts have been turned into beach areas, with many facilities such as pedalos, swimming and cafes, but also canoes, sailing boats, water-skiing and windsurfing are available.
Limoges is approx. 40 minutes drive from the house. The old town is full of character. Wander through the famous Meat Market, and then visit the museums and world-famous porcelain shops.
This property is not suitable for unsupervised young children, as the river bank is not fenced off.
Although there are 2 showers, there is no bath.

Loved the privacy and peace and quiet

By Paul Dwyer on 27-May-2024

The house was easy to find and in stunning order, Everything we needed was available. It was comfortable and relaxing. We did have neighbours but they were very nice and accommodating. We would love to come here again and I would recommend Le Moulin De Boirot to people who just want to get away.

Such a lovely quiet location

By Paul & Nethan on 04-Aug-2023

We stayed with our four children, ages 13,10 and twin 5 year old girls. They loved playing in the field and we loved taking them for walks and to the water park lake at saint perdoix. Such a great location and really helpful owners and they had a great lady who was on hand for anything we needed. We got very delayed and she met us close to midnight to let us in. Five star service. Thank you for letting us rent your lovely holiday home… it truly was kitted out with every spoon, fork, glass and utensil you could ever need.

Summary of Stay - excellent

By Claire Conington on 14-Jul-2023

We stayed here for 12 nights in July and loved Moulin de Boirot - very peaceful setting, lovely scenery all around and friendly neighbours. The house was very roomy, well equipped and clean, nothing to fault and the garden was huge! We hired bikes and cycled along the lanes to little villages and ate out at the local bar in the village. Would recommend for a quiet, away from the bustle stay, but with plenty to do and visit. The owners were also very helpful.
