Description

This Mill House is a rustic rural retreat in the form of a spacious and comfortably furnished gite. It is situated on its' own small river island and is set in a truly peaceful paradise. It can only be accessed on foot by crossing a narrow causeway bridge [this is original and made from old stone and being uneven it is not suitable for people who are unsteady on their feet or infirm]. This individual property has a private terrace overlooking the River Dropt and is perfect for al-fresco dinning and relaxing whilst admiring marvellous and idyllic view and sharing precious moments with your family or friends over a nice glass of locally produced wine

The Mill House can sleep four, plus one. We have a double and a twin bedroom. Generally the gite is set up for four people; for example there are only four chairs around each of the dining tables. But we can sleep an extra person if required as there is an extra put-up bed in the twin room

Please note this property is not suitable for people who are unsteady on their feet or infirm due to the uniqueness of the Mill House's location being sited on a river island and only accessible across an old stone causeway. There is a lot of deep water around so younger children (under 10 years) would need close supervision

The gite has many original and beautiful features adding to its' rustic and special charm. The old stone walls, original windows and shutters, the large open fireplace and exposed beams enhance the character of the old water mill which together with the tastefully decorated and comfortable soft furnishings creates a warm, welcoming and beautiful ambiance

The mill house front door opens onto a large lounge area with lovely oak beams and grand stone fireplace. There is both a separate dining room, outside dining terrace with spectacular views over the river and a well equipped kitchen in true French style. Outside the kitchen is a small patio area with a BBQ. Upstairs are the bedrooms and a family sized bathroom with separate WC. Please note caution must be taken with using the oak staircase as it is original and very steep. The ground floor is fully tiled, whilst the upper floor has old wooden floors [no heals please]. The Mill House is independently sited approximately 100m from “Le Grande Maison” which was once an old barn, and is now occupied by the owners. The heated pool is situated at the rear of "Le Grande Maison". The owners may on occasion use the pool but as guests you will always be given priority and privacy

This very tranquil and beautiful location is perfect for getting away from it all. It is an ideal retreat for couples or families with older children, people who enjoy fishing or the peace and quiet of an authentic and unique French Mill House on a river

The river attracts abundant bird and wildlife including river mammals and birds, red squirrels, many beautiful butterflies, moths and fascinating insects. The River Dropt has an excellent reputation for fishing and has some very large, prize-winning fish to ready to be caught from your own island garden! Wild flowers, flowering and fruiting trees and shrubs provide a colourful backdrop most of the year

On the island, you will find the lock keepers cottage, which is now a games room for your use containing table tennis, darts and swing ball. You will also find picnic blankets and hammocks for use on the island. We also have a two-man rowboat (and life jackets) you can use

Ce moulin est un spacieux refuge champêtre et rural, confortablement aménagé et meublé sous la forme d’un gîte. Construit sur l’île de sa propre rivière, il offre un véritable paradis de tranquillité. Le seul moyen pour y accéder est de traverser à pied l’étroit pont de pierre qui sépare la propriété de la chaussée (étant d’origine et irrégulier il n’est pas conseillé aux jeunes enfants, aux personnes âgées ou celles souffrant d’une quelconque difficulté à marcher de l’emprunter). Cette propriété individuelle a sa propre terrasse privée avec vue sur la rivière du Dropt qui est idéale pour des dîners en plein air, se relaxer tout en admirant la vue idyllique, ou encore pour partager de merveilleux moments en famille ou entre amis en dégustant un bon verre de vin localement produit. Vous pourrez également profiter de la grande piscine chauffée, commune avec les propriétaires et de la terrasse ensoleillée au cœur du magnifique cadre privé de la maison de ces derniers, avec vue sur le jardin, la rivière et les bois et paysages environnant
