Heated Pool & Spa

Our sparkling heated swimming pool is simply fabulous.  Measuring a huge 12 x 6 metres it is usually open from late-April to early-October for the complete enjoyment of everyone - you and your partner, your friends or family.

The Moulin pool is securely alarmed and has three wide non-slip Roman steps – perfect for any younger children or for just sitting with a book when it’s hot - plus a terraced surround with plenty of sun-loungers, deck-chairs and parasols.The evening sunset is fantastic! .

If it’s a bit too cool for the pool, or you just enjoy star-gazing into the amazingly clear night skies, we also have a six-person hot-tub/spa in a terraced corner of the main courtyard. At 38 degrees, the hot-jets – cooler in the summer! - and bubbles provide wonderful relaxation at any time of year. Children are welcome but must be supervised.

Carp Fishing in France at the Moulin Lake

Moulin de Boutineau is home to the beautiful Moulin Lake, stocked with some 60 immaculate carp up to 45lbs. Spend idyllic days carp fishing in France while others with you have a proper holiday too.

Our glorious private 2.5 acres Moulin Lake contains some 60 immaculate carp (mirror & common 15-45lbs), plus a pair of sizeable grass carp – all offering a great challenge.

Only 35 metres from the courtyard cottages, there’s flat, easy-access all around the lake. With 5 decked swims, as well as other good spots and an accessible island, there’s a range of different open water areas to fish into.

Carp fishing in France on your doorstep has rarely been so appealing!

The Gardener's Cottage is available for carp fishing during the July & August high season period - However there are now 24 weeks when the Moulin Lake CAN be booked exclusively for 2-4 fishermen during April/May and September/October and also late-May to early July but ONLY by renting the Fisherman’s Cottage.

Set in 15 acres of lush meadows and woodland, the Moulin Lake is stream-fed with fresh water, while an overflow ensures good circulation and oxygenation all year. It is also fed by a natural spring beneath the waters, so it never dries out, even during hot summers.

There are three decked swims on the nearest bank. Two overlook the deeper area of the lake – around 5 feet – and the third is between some large willows, near the feature island in the centre – another popular fishing spot.

The two remaining swims are on the opposite side of the lake which tapers to around three feet deep at the shallower silty-bottomed top end where the stream water constantly enters the lake.

Carp fishing for up to four anglers is comfortable if everyone is respectful – we’ve had some cracking competition and banter. There are no outside ‘day tickets’. Only those booked into a cottage can fish.
