“A beautiful property with stunning grounds. Paradise”
Reviewed September 12, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Really helpful and friendly owners. We received a very nice hamper and fresh flowers when we arrived. The property is quite querky and its history is fascinating. The owners have made it a really lovely place to sit and relax. The wild life in the garden was fantastic, including red squirrels and eels swimming into the kitchen. There are lots of activities at the property including bikes, swimming pool, table tennis etc. Loads to do in and around the area. A very pretty little corner of France.

Stayed at the restored water mill in May and the weather was kind to us making the whole trip very enjoyable. The property is down a lovely leafy lane in its own grounds and very imposing. The family are really welcoming and knowledgable about the area and recommended some great days out. Isle De Re is an absolute must! Overall, the accommodation, location and holiday was first class - highly recommended!

“A truly French experience”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a weeks holiday in this former water mill and it was just what we were looking for.
My husband and I have quite stressful jobs and we were looking for a get away from it all leisurely sejour and we found it the Deux Sevres region of Western France. It was a lovely setting and as a previous review states, a sympathetic restoration to the property which has left the heart and soul intact. The owners informed us that the property dates back several hundred years and we loved the old charm with a splash of the contemporary.
The large and private grounds ensure privacy.
We liked...
Lovely, typically French feel to the place.
The pretty village of Paizay le Tort
Silver mines at Melle
Restaurants and market in Melle

Thanks again, can we come back next year ?
