Fantastic beautiful Location. Surrounding area beautiful as well. The house finished to high standard, yet homely and relaxing. Young kids throughly enjoyed themselves, as well as us adults.

“Idyllic getaway”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a fantastic place in a super location. We were an extended family of 6 that stayed for 6 days using it as a base to explore nearby Alsace sights. The house is a bit off from the main track, nicely secluded but is close enough to "town" if desired.

The house itself is massive and well appointed with a nice mix of historic feel with modern amenities. The deck is great for catching the sunlight entering the glade and the sound of water and the mill wheel is very soothing. We also enjoyed cooking outdoor in the fire pit. Inside, the bedrooms are all comfy and a couple that have deck access. While we didn't use it, the loft bedroom would be perfect for a big family group with a number of kids. The common areas (kitchen, dining, living and TV rooms) are also well done. Playing ping pong in basement and having access to a mountain bike was a nice option as well.

We took a number of walks as the forest area offers a variety of terrain from back roads to forest trails..they are pretty well marked as well. I took out a mtb on a couple of 20-25 mile mixed surface rides (road/gravel/trail) and the routes and scenery was fantastic.

Great for a large group with the 6 bedrooms and lots of common space. Getting in/out is ok although on back roads...the location does show up onGoogle maps though! Lohr, Graufthal and particularly La Petit Pierre are nice places for a lunch/dinner.

Francis and Helene were great hosts, met us at the property at the start and showed us how things worked and were very easy to interact with. There was local info available that was helpful as a resource.

Loved the place...only downside was that we couldn't stay longer!

It was a pleasure to host a nice and respectful group like the family of Diana and Greg. They'll welcome at the Saint Moulin next time in Alsace.

“Heiligenmuhle was great”
Reviewed October 26, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We are just back from our annual sibling holiday - four couples, ages ranging from 57 to 73. The mill was ideal, set in the heart of the forest where the Autumn colours were magnificent and the forest floor thick with fungi. One of the group is an expert on fungi, and led several foraging expeditions which produced edible additions to our meals.

The accommodation was as described, though with five bedrooms on one floor (we only used four of them) a larger group could find the single bathroom and separate toilet on that floor a bit restrictive. There was another bathroom with toilet, and a separate toilet, on the ground floor.

Outside there was the gentle background noise of the waterwheel and fountain, though the description "river" for the stream flowing through the property was a bit of an exaggeration.

Of course, being in the heart of the forest, you really need a car, but there are several excellent restaurants and shops within a few kilometres.

The owner had the wonderful stove lit when we arrived, and we kept it going from the large woodpile all the week we were there, so the house was very warm.

“Feels like Downton Abbey”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed in Le Saint Moulin last July. We rented the house with another family, so our company consisted of 4 adults, 4 adolescents and 1 ight year old boy. We all had a wonderful time. The owners, Hélène and Francis, are very friendly and helpful. They only stay in their part of the house in their holidays, so you have the whole valley just for yourselves! It is amazing to have so much space and beauty around you. We went for walks and biking trips, but also stayed in and around the house a lot, just to enjoy the feeling of being part of some noble family: it really feels like living in some grand estate.The only thing that was missing to fit this picture, was a bunch of servants ;-) This place is probably also perfect for Christmas holidays. Or autumn, or early spring. Oh well, it's just great. If you get the change: go here!

“Wonderful home in a secluded vale.”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

In June 2015 we stayed at the Mill, and for our group of extended family with kids, it was perfect. The Mill is both spacious and cozy, with beautiful views and great natural lighting, clean, comfortable, and fully furnished. The main living space easily accommodated our group of 10 in the kitchen and for dinners at the large dining table, and offered nooks for those who wanted some quiet space to read or to view a movie via wi fi or the DVD player. The bedrooms are well laid out and permitted our three families to choose the most congenial sleeping arrangements.

The outside space was also wonderful. The little vale that hosts the Mill provided almost complete solitude. The kids wandered the large meadow searching for slugs and hoping for a second sighting of the fox kit, while we threw open the doors and windows and enjoyed the bird song as we sat on the patio. There is one hazard the kids need warning off, but outside of that -- with no traffic and few passersby -- we let the kids roam freely, a welcome break from our often-confining travels.

Francis, the proprietor, was helpful and kind, a pleasure to interact with. As always, your mileage may vary, but for our group the Mill was wonderful and I would unreservedly recommend it to a friend.
