We had a room on the first floor of the hotel: the cheapest rooms they offer are on this floor. Our room was extremely small (the only place where we could open our small suitcases was on the bed), with a low ceiling and a small window. The bathroom was also small, with some kind of bath tub (but too... More

I don't think so. After the inevitably stressful drive from the coasts, north or south, the enfolding greenery and the rushing torrent of the River Cousin are the perfect antidote. The mill, now over 800 years old, oozes character. The family who now run the hotel offer a friendly welcome and fairly priced meals. The locality is full of unspoilt... More

This inn is located on a rushing river, the Cousin. Being a winter visit the sound of the river was very soothing. I stayed here thirty years ago and not much has changed. We arrived in the evening and it was cold and rainy. We were the only guests registered. There is a very generous parkimg lot. Our room on... More

Le Moulin des Templiers is at an very tranquil enviroment next to a river in the outskirt of a small town. The people are very friendly and serviceminded and the breakfast here was memorable! Simple standard but cozy and very good value for money. Don´t miss out on breakfast!

We used this charming little hotel both on the way to and way back from Provence. It is a little tricky to find, there is a large sign on the road initially but then the sign for the turning is much smaller and we missed it the first time. We booked 2 rooms for 2 adults, 3 teenagers and 1... More

A beautiful little hotel by the river. Very friendly welcome following a few e mails, as the only room free was a single room with double bed and a shared toilet along a narrow corridor, but this was perfect for an overnight pit stop en route south. The food was simple, with no choices, but as arranged in advance my... More

I spotted this hotel while exploring Burgundy with my husband some 25 years ago, and enchanted by its appearance and setting -(just as described by your other reviewers)- determined to stay there one day.We managed this for one night in July. I think our disappointment was mainly down to the weather being cold, grey and wet, rendering the lovely terrace... More

My wife and I returned to France for our 30th anniversary. We stayed at Moulin des Templiers on our honeymoon and a nostalgic trip back was a must. This is a simple inn on an amazing site, right on the Cousin River on a quiet road near Avallon and Vezelay. The river was full this June because of all the... More

Nested alongside the Cousin river in the Avallon region (Department of Yonne, in Burgundy), 200 km from Paris and 100 km from Beaune, this charming water mill is a romantic hideaway. Family managed, the young couple running it is smiling and helpful, and the food is suprisingly far above expectations. This very simple 2 star hotel is fitted with comfortable... More

A beautiful property, right on the river cousins which you can hear rushing by from your room. The location was absolutely perfect and the hosts lovely. A cute dog as well :). Breakfast was good. The rooms aren't big and the shower is a small bath thing, but if you aren't staying for longer than 2 days this isn't a... More
