“Moulin de Courcueil” is situated on a quiet dead-end country lane one and a small 2 miles from the village of Ecueillé, where you can find all the necessary supplies. The originally medieval village still prides itself on an old Romanesque church. You can fish in the little river on our property but there are also various lakes (fishing, surfing etc.) at a few miles distance. Walking and cycling routes can easily be found, even starting from the mill. One of France’s largest Zoo is only 12 miles away and the magnificent bird sanctuary “de la Brenne” (park of a thousand lakes) 21 miles. Splendid 18 hole golf courses at 21 and 29 miles. The area is scattered with magnificent small, medium and king size castles, like Valencay, , Chambord, Cheverny, etc. Historic towns like Tours and seaside resorts like La Rochelle at a 1 to 2 hours’ drive. For those who enjoy a good glass of wine there are dozens of vineyards. If you like French cheese, don’t forget to taste the many goat cheeses.
