Moulin du Merle

Spring 2024 - Moulin du Merle - gîte in Burgundy, France



Group accommodation 
In Burgundy, two hours below Paris, lies the picturesque Moulin du Merle. An old water mill with 8 bedrooms that can accommodate around 15 guests. There is a spacious garden all around with a small river and pond, ducks and a vegetable garden. 

Nature, yoga & good food 
During Easter and Pentecoast 2024, the Moulin will host two four-day packages. Great food and drinks, make new friends or reunite with family, yoga in the morning among the trees, a long contemplative walk or helping out in the vegetable garden: it's all possible!

Guests and rooms
For this package, there is a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 guests. There are 8 bedrooms with 2, 3 or more beds, below on this page you can see a picture of the rooms per floor. A single room is available (limited). There are 3 bathrooms and several toilets in the house, so you do not have private sanitary facilities. The living room, dining room and kitchen are also at guests' disposal during their stay.

Saint-Germain des Bois is located in Burgundy (Nièvre), about two hours below Paris. It is easily accessible by train (Eurostar to Paris, then train to Clamecy). By car, it is about 8.5 hours from Amsterdam. On the Moulin du Merle website you will find all information about the route, the surroundings and the house.

To book for the Easter or Pentecost package, please email me at If you want to come with a group of friends, it is best to let me know right away so you can participate together! Please also state if you would like to have dinner at the Moulin on Saturday or Sunday evening.

Would you like to take an option? Then I ask for a deposit of €100 per person (payment request via Whatsapp). I will invoice the rest two weeks prior to your arrival. You will receive an invoice. You can cancel by 16 February (Easter package) and 5 April (Pentecoast package) at the latest. Then I still have six weeks to recruit new participants. 

*This is a trial package, which is why we can offer it at a one-off reduced rate.

The Moulin du Merle is perfect for groups of (art) students, colleagues, friends and families. On this website you will find all information about the accommodation, the surroundings and booking.
