A most beautiful and unique water mill where you can simply relax and chill or partake in one of the many activities provided. Hosts are very welcoming and encourage you to explore and make full use of the grounds and facilities without making you feel intrusive. We cannot overstate the true beauty of the place and would definitely visit again.

Management response:

Dear Frank & Deborah Thank you for your kind comments. It was an absolute pleasure having you to stay and wish you all the best for the future. Kind Regards Jason & Marie-Laure
