We have just spent a few days at this hotel, tucked away down a short drive. although only 5 minutes from Brantome. The only sound we ever heard was the water at the mill. Our accommodation was spacious and stylish and beautifully designed. Our welcome by the owner's son was outstanding, even if we did get lost, plus he spoke excellent English. Both he and his parents (his Father is the chef) were on hand all the time, working hard to ensure all their guest were happy and they could not have kinder or more helpful. My Husband is on a walking stick and everyone went out of their way to help him - mind you it is very easy to get around, with no nasty steps and crags. The property is divided into four buildings, one with reception, one with just two rooms, another with six rooms and then the mill itself, which houses the restaurant and two further rooms. The whole area of the mill is surrounded by water, it is almost an island and then to one side is the wier and River Dronne. We expected to suffer with mosquito problems, but I never saw one, even though the weather was very warm indeed. You are surrounded by glorious trees and there are flowers everywhere. Plus more butterflies than I have seen for years. There is an excellent pool with easy access and very stylish seating umbrellas for everyone - it was always quiet, as so many people went off for the day to see the surrounding towns and villages, which are very impressive. But it was marvellous to come home to the hotel and delicious food. Not over fancy, but with lots of fish and sea food and beautiful salads, all very fresh and brought in everyday by the Patron himself. All in all a fabulous find and we will definitely go back soon,
