Welcome to Moulin de la Placette


Gites in the Loire Valley


At Moulin de la Placette we have 3 cottages and a B&B room, set in 2 acres of land on a hilltop overlooking beautiful countryside on the edge of the village of Faye D'Anjou, amid the vineyards of the Coteau du Layon area of the Loire Valley.


The cottages are ideal for individual lettings of 6, 4, and 4, or for larger groups of up to 14 family or friends. They are converted from buildings around the foundations of an old windmill in beautifully peaceful grounds of mainly grass, shrubs and trees. They are centrally heated, well furnished, and equipped.

There is a large12m x 5m swimming pool, open from June until September, and plenty of space for a game of boules or to find a quiet spot to relax and enjoy the wonderful views.

A 10 minute walk takes you to the village centre with its patisserie/boulangerie, mini-market and bar. A larger supermarket can be found at Thouarce, a 5 minute drive away. Faye d’Anjou is a good base from which to explore the chateaux of the Western Loire.
