Moulin de Fontas

This water mill situated on the banks of the River Dronne not far from our offices in Bourdeilles the project was the renovation of the mill and its conversion into a spacious holiday home with swimming pool and tennis courts.

The existing mill house and mill were renovated to a high standard creating riverside terraces along the old mill race accessed from the new kitchen and dining rooms and first floor with the old wheat store five bedrooms with contemporary ensuite bathrooms were created.
