    Description

    Fifteen years ago, I left the heart of Amsterdam to go live in the French countryside. The number of inhabitants of the moulin varies from one to twenty (family, guests, pilgrims, volunteers).

    Our place does not go unnoticed in Burgundy. The picturesque balconies, 1.7 hectares of land, set apart by a gentle river, its own water source, and an organic herb and vegetable garden all come together to create a harmonious cinematic setting.

    Situated in rural Nièvre, valley of the Beuvron, alongside the river Beuvron, the former watermill offers a quiet atmosphere, where concentration and relaxation can be alternated in order to reach thorough productivity.

    If eventually you tire of swimming and reading (in a hammock in the shade, on the balcony with a glass wine, or in front of the fireplace with a hot chocolate), there is still much to discover in the surrounding area.

    Closest train station is 10 km away (Clamecy).
