General Description

A charming and handsome mid 19th century converted mill bordering the tranquil river Auvézère. Ideal rural retreat for a group of ten friends or family, or alternatively for just a couple. The mill is arranged over three floors with a vast open-plan kitchen/dining room. It also has a spacious terrace for sundowners, with an outside dining table, overlooking the unspoilt countryside. The river is a source of extensive wildlife and fabulous places for exploring and barbecue pic-nics. The house has been our French base for over 25 years and we can provide you with a mass of things to see and do in the area (ranging from chateaux and gardens to tree-walking and wake-boarding). We have a cordon bleu trained housekeeper who can help take the responsibility of cooking at home. Alternatively, there is a great selection of local restaurants amidst this productive region for Foie Gras, Truffles and Walnuts.

Amazing time at the Moulin
Posted by Fiona
Spacious, very well equipped, beautifully presented, attractive interior. Very good dining terrace as well as an excellent kitchen. Lovely grounds, very good pool and pool toys and river on the doorstep. Delightful and helpful housekeeper. Convenient for local village and local town. An altogether gorgeous family holiday home.

Marvellous Property!!!

The property was all we hoped it would be - it had a very homely feel and there was plenty of space for everyone to find their own corner and a pool to meet up and have fun together. Despite very hot weather, the house was welcomingly cool inside

Amazing!
I have been meaning to write to you since our return at the weekend. We had a thoroughly lovely 2 weeks - the property had the perfect homely feel that I had been hoping for. It suited our guests of the first week (adult siblings/friends), as well as the second week with the family (including 4 young children). There was somewhere for everyone to retreat to for quiet time, and lots of communal areas for meeting up to eat and drink or swim. There was nothing to fault, and Rebecca was the kindest and most helpful housekeeper that one could want. The weather was very hot but we could all find shady spots to while away the mid day sun, and the outside eating area off the kitchen for supper/BBQ was the place we all loved spending time, so much so that we were hardly tempted to eat out at all.
