Full Description

They always say 'Location, Location, Location' and never could this be more appropriate for this idyllic former water mill perched on its own private island with the river Charente gracefully passing by over two weirs and through its sluices. The workings of the mill are still in place and are actually in working order. Accessed via a private lane and over a stone bridge the property boasts 5 private islands as well as a garden, courtyard and even a shady, cool glade all on over four acres.

The mill house has been tastefully restored to include a fitted kitchen, sitting room, 4 large bedrooms with a shower room and WC on each of the two floors and a fantastic ground floor, attached art studio of 60m2. Centrally heated by a wood burner with a radiator system and with a mains water purifier offering crystal clear, clean drinking water.

Attached to the mill is a useful storage barn and across the courtyard is covered parking for 2 cars.
2 river races for the mill, 2 weirs, riverside gardens to remind you that you area in heaven, 4 islands offering the utmost privacy and a haven for wildlife and nature. Generating electricity would be a possibility from the river's flow. Despite the feeling of remoteness and being at one with nature the market town of Aigre is only 6kms away and 3kms way is a village with 2 restaurants, a baker and convenience store.

The department of Charente is located in the centre-west of France and is part of the Poitou-Charentes region along with Deux Sevres, Charente Maritime and the Vienne department.

Its name as is often the case comes from the river Charente which snakes through the department. Two local dialects are spoken in the area, Saintongeais in the west and Occitan to the east.

Charente is a thriving department for several reasons, Cognac production is one of the most interesting and profitable industries, the export level of approx. 95% is a success, the consumption in France being only 5% (some say they keep the best 5% in France!).

The department has many typical towns, Angouleme in the south east for example hosts an international festival that attracts hundreds of visitors and is not to be missed.

The region is popular with hikers, bikers and nature lovers who like to discover the woodlands, lakes and streams that are part of this amazing landscape.
