What a lovely place, the grounds were fabulous, with a stream and a river. It was a peaceful setting, and sitting in the garden with a cup of tea listening to the water running an the birds singing was very relaxing. We were made so welcome by Jason and Marie-Laure with fresh flowers fruit and a welcome pack with a much needed bottle of wine.
The restorationof this mill has been done really well and parts of the old workings are all around. Would we go back most definitely and we were there in a nippy March, I can only imagine how much better it would be in the summer.
Beautiful location, stunning property set in gorgeous grounds. Easy to get to interesting places like Poitiers, Niort, Futuroscope, the zoo at Palymre; highly recommended.
Stayed for 2 lovely weeks in June. The location is peaceful, the gardens and surrounding are thoughtfully designed to provide areas for relaxation and areas for activity. I loved lounging on the hammock beside the stream and exploring in the woods. The owners were very friendly, not only did we get the welcome hamper when we arrived they gave us bowlfuls of cherries and lettuces from the garden, we couldn't have asked for more. Jason was very knowledgeable about the local area and gave us plenty of tips of places to visit, wish we had asked him earlier in the holiday. The Mill is as described by the owner and all other reviews but none of them can really describe how idyllic it is until you have stayed there.
The beutifully restored watermill is comfortable & well equipped. There area and grounds are tranquil only interupted with the sound of bird song and running water.
The welcome pack is extensive and was greatfully recieved
Jason and Marie-Laure were on hand if needed and were very helpful, they have done an amazing job of restoring this old property and have a welath of knowledge on the local area.
We had a restful time at Le Moulin Combe and will hopefully have the oppertunity to visit again
first impression were excellent and from then on in it just got better Jason the owner was fantastic couldn't of wanted for anything more superb house and fantastic grounds and garden ,stream river plenty of fish and wildlife and just an hour from la Rochelle saintes Angouleme niort a lovely welcome pack what a lovely touch ,such a lovely feeling and vibe to the whole setting with so much to do with badminton table tennis cricket not forgetting playing pooh sticks in your our garden by the fantastic seating bar b q area 10 out of 10 thank you for a wonderful stay
Stayed here some time ago and hoping to come back. So chilled great for kids and fab location with so many attractions just a short drive away. Lovely stay and accommodation.
We were looking for a short break in France in an area that we hadn't visited for a little while. We certainly chose the right cottage. When you go down the short drive you see the cottage exactly as you see it in the website.
We were met by Jason, who gave us a short tour of the cottage and grounds and also showed us the very inviting welcome pack of French products.
We quickly settled in and enjoyed a very relaxing holiday doing very little, with the odd trip to the local attractions.
This is one of the best cottages that we have stayed in and recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday.
