Description

This Mill House is a rustic rural retreat in the form of 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 young children or 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

Although the Mill House can sleep four, please note we cannot accept children under the age of ten years old, people who are unable to swim or 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

The Mill House is located just outside a small hamlet called La Sauvetat du Dropt [1km], & very close to the touristic and beautiful bastide town of Eymet [4Km]. Both Bergerac and Marmande are a short drive away [30 mins]. This is area is famous for is vineyards and there are multiple “degustation” places to sample the locally produced wines of Duras, Bergerac and Monbazillac. The famous wine regions of Bordeaux including St Emilion and Sauterne are within one hour's drive. This truly special place is not isolated, being close to many tourist hotspots with all local amenities

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 ambience

The Mill House consists of two bedrooms with one double bedded room & two single beds in the other room [an additional foldaway single bed is available on request if you have a fifth guest in your party]. The 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. There is also 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, sometimes this is occupied by the owners. The heated pool is situation at the rear of "Le Grande Maison" hence it is has shared use with the owners when they are at the property

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 and 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
