Holiday and relaxation in the French Dordogne!
When you say holiday in France you immediately say "Vacance à la campagne". Then you think of the French sun "Le soleil" the delicious wines "Le vin", the fresh breads "du pain" and then you exclaim; Du pain, du vin et du fromage! The three most important things in the lives of the French. Holiday is a moment in your life of relaxation, recuperation and above all enjoyment of the environment and culture, this together with your partner, your family and perhaps your family or friends.

For the holiday domain "Le Domaine du Moulin Neuf 1605" an idealistic way of thinking and working! It is not possible to compensate for the damage humans cause to nature; there are too many of them in this world for that.

At the holiday domain "Le Domaine du Moulin Neuf 1605", you can go on holiday in a climate-neutral way, e.g. the water from the lake is used to generate electricity by means of a water turbine (Hydro Power 12 kWh) for the outdoor swimming pool, the owner's house and the (auxiliary) buildings, 21 solar panels (400Wp) have been installed for the electricity of the "Gîtes" cottages and the owner's house, the outdoor swimming pool is heated with a special solar boiler and spring water (eau de source) is used for drinking water supply, flushing the toilets, showers and even filling the outdoor swimming pool.
Finally, lighting and electricity consumption is kept to a minimum, for example, only LED lighting is used to light the buildings, the holiday homes "Gîtes" and owners' residence. All outdoor lighting works on the basis of "presence" and in combination with twilight, this allows the lights to switch on only when it is sufficiently dark. In the evening, the lights are left on as little as possible and are automatically switched off at 10 p.m. This is to prevent light pollution and not disturb the night's rest of the animals in the forest.
