Additional Location Information

The mill is situated on the River Combade in the hamlet of the 'Pont du Rateau' which is where the river Combade joins the River Vienne which in the days when timber was floated to its destination was a marshalling point with posts across the river like an upturned rake (rateau) giving the locality its name.It is also the point of departure for amateur guided canoeing descents of the Vienne.
The triangle formed between the rivers Vienne & Maulde, with the Pont du Rateau was the site of the 'Oppidum de Villejoubert' the largest Celtic settlement of its time, only recently discovered, and whose boundaries can be walked easily from the Mill
The train halt of St Denis-des-murs is a 10 minute walk from the mill with trains to Limoges via St Leonard de Noblat and to the Auvergne via Eymoutiers.
The setting is peaceful with easy access by car to the market towns of St Leonard, Chateauneuf la Foret and Eymoutiers.
The village of Masleon ( 3kms) boasts a bakery,grocery store and farm restaurant.
Limoges, the capital of the Limousin area with all its history and attractions is within 30minutes by car or train.
