Le Moulin de la Tuilerie

Impasse de la Tuilerie
Gif-sur-Yvette, France
Before there was William and Kate or even Charles and Di, there was the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, who were the media sensation of their day. Re-opened in 2011, the couple’s private estate is available for rent. Run by the British Landmark Trust, the 18th-century former mill is set on two lush acres and includes two stone cottages used by the Windsors’ close friends—Maria Callas, Marlene Dietrich, and Elizabeth Taylor, to name a few. Cobblestoned paths and meandering streams wind through the original gardens. Inside, you’ll find English-country furniture (antique beds; rush-seated oak chairs) and fireplaces that make it the perfect place to curl up with a classic from the library.
