Castle Vieux Moulin to Vielmanay

Concealed in the hollow of a wooded valley traversed by a small tributary of the Loire, Château Vieux Moulin was its origin, at the end of the 13th century, a fortified House surrounded by a moat, which ensured the protection of the Abbey of Bellary.

History

Bear witness to this distant medieval past, the trace of the old moat, the more trees in its Park and the strength of its image which seems frozen out of time. The hundred years war helped ruin much the strong House, which was rebuilt at the time of the Renaissance by Guillaume de Marafin, coming from a family tourangelle, close to the royal power.

Old mill did not long remain away from religious quarrels that ensanglantèrent at the time across the banks of the Loire region. The former medieval strong House, it remains the massive North East Tower, the base of the South West Tower, and part of the square Tower entrance and moat.

In the 17th century, large windows were opened in the two fronts and two rectangular pavilions were built and part of the porch as well as on the basis of the first constructions of the speaker of the 13th century.

Nowadays

Elective late 2014, old mill began a renovation stage, which will give birth to 5 guest rooms which immerse you in the middle ages while combining the current comfort, table d ' hôte will be and that is how we will share around a large table a feast worthy of the name. A website was opened in order to follow the progress of this new adventure that begins at old mill, the opening of the establishment is scheduled in the spring of 2017.
