The Moulin was the perfect place to stay for an ultimate surprise 9th wedding anniversary package I arranged for my husband. Before even booking rooms, I emailed the owner, Isabelle, and she went out of her way to help me make plans that rivaled 007 secrecy: She picked us up at the Auneau train station (55mn from Paris Austerlitz); two nights in her GORGEOUS B&B; a hot-air balloon ride for two (lift off is just down the road - 3mn on foot); two in-room massages; a catered romantic dinner for two on the premises; and contact numbers for round-trip taxi rides to see "Chartres en lumières" (NB: one-way costs about 60eur which is cheap compared to Paris!). It was all perfect.
The Moulin property is a piece of paradise and the perfect romantic getaway from stressful city life. The breakfast was lovely with homemade bread from the Moulin. Being that my husband's a engineering buff, he was like a kid in a candy shop watching the water mill grind flour.
Isabelle also lent us the electric bikes - with which my husband buzzed around while I napped in the chaise lounge in the sun-bathed garden. Pure bliss! Thank you Isabelle for your help in making this one of the best anniversaries ever!More
