A brand-new charming accommodation in an old miller's house.


Room Arabella is to be called very spacious, in fact, you could almost call it an apartment. On the 1st floor of one of the old miller's houses you'll find the entrance. This doorway gives you access to the bright living room of approximately 24 square metres. A pellet stove is installed to provide heating convenience for the colder season. On this floor you will also find the spacious private bathroom with a shower, washbasin and a toilet. A staircase in the living room leads to the sleeping loft of about 36 m2 with a double bed sized 1.95 x 1.60 m.

Where is Moulin de Chez Joyeux located?


Moulin de Chez Joyeux is located near a small village named Thiat. You'll find this small village about 400 kilometers to the south of Paris in the department of Haute-Vienne. Besides the Creuse and the Corrèze, this is one of the three departments the Limousin has to offer.


The beautiful nature and the exceptional microclimate in the Haute-Vienne (in the summer the average temperature is 27 degrees Celsius!) is inviting to be active outdoors. And this is not just limited to the summer season, but all year around.
