In France there is a healthy supply of mills for sale and, similar to the UK, the type of accomodation offered by the two different types of mill differs greatly.
Often, old watermills provide the grander and more spacious accommodation but these mills can vary greatly from tiny, unassuming buildings to huge properties of which the watermill is just a part.
There are also plenty of old stone watermills ready for renovation, often in remote and country locations and with the original machinery and water wheel.
Surrounded by peaceful countryside, some mills also have their own stretch of river enabling you to while away lazy sunny days swimming or trout fishing.

Many are extremely picturesque, but others can be more industrial in nature, and so need a healthy dose of vision and design flair to transform them into comfortable and desirable homes.
Windmills too have their own certain characteristics, and are defined by their shape which begins with a roundish, wide base narrowing to a small space at the top.
The views from the top are often spectacular, and offer perfect compensation for the climb and cramped conditions in the uppermost rooms!
Unconverted mills for sale in France are not plentiful and will normally require considerable work and even those in a state of complete disrepair can command prices of around 250,000 Euros.
There are mills for sale in some of the most stunning and remote areas of Europe and for the wise investor, these unusual properties can provide an excellent investment opportunity.
