The warmest welcome from great hosts and it just gets better from there. We had the most wonderful welcome basket which was very thoughtful and some stunning flowers. It’s been our third stay in this top quality property and each time the hosts have done more work and made it even better. The mill is steeped in history but has been converted so that is is super comfortable and done to the highest quality. They’ve really thought of everything, the garden is fully landscaped with a pool and is truly delightful. There’s a massive family room which is tastefully appointed and wonderful to relax in. There are goats, ducks and chickens in a contained area so you can mix with them if you love animals or keep your distance if you’re not sure. There are books and magazines for you to borrow, games to play, or just sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Lots of places to visit locally and Jason and Marie-Laure are happy to help with suggestions. The house is spotlessly clean and the grounds are very well maintained, it’s lovely to wander round them and appreciate everything that has been done. We’ve only just returned home and are already planning our next trip. Read less Visited May 2022
Shamefully we did very little. We had great plans to explore this beautiful region of France, but the tranquil paradise was so enthralling we just didn’t want to leave it. The tropical gardens, feeding the goats, ducks, hens (and feeding the fish in the Mill Race), playing with the security cat, and of course the beautiful pool. You are spoilt for choice of where to relax, sun or shade, and inside the luxurious lounge is so comfy with a huge TV. However, we very rarely used it, choosing to be outside from dawn to dusk. No review can capsule the beauty of the place, and the lavish welcoming basket plus the fresh produce that arrived on our doorstep mid week was more than an added bonus. Jason and Marie-Laurie are the perfect hosts with the right balance of being available but also unobtrusive and so very laid back and helpful (even to the point of providing last minute oil for the car which would have broken down on drive back without it!) The bed was super comfy, the bath luxurious, everywhere so tastefully furnished. We couldn’t fault a thing. We have stayed in so many rentals over the years I can can honestly say this far surpasses anywhere else. But hey don’t take my word for it…. See it for yourself. We will definitely be back, and next time perhaps we will be a little more adventurous. Thank you so much to you both for such a wonderful week. The place and yourselves are awesome. As Alison said… you have nailed it! Read less Visited August 2022
We have recently returned from a weeks stay at Le Moulin de la Combe and what a great week we had! The converted water mill is a superb place to stay.There are three bedrooms,one with a four poster bed. The accommodation is comfortable,practical and also very interesting with its waterwheels and collection of antiques dotted around the rooms. The beautiful garden is a lovely place to relax,reading a book by the stream in the sunshine was an ideal way to spend a a lazy day. We visited the nearby market town of Lezey and had a day at the beach on the Ile D’Oleron.The silver mines in Melle are well worth a visit too. Jason and Marie-Laure who own the property are nearby and are a great source of local knowledge and are excellent hosts.The massive amount of work that they have put into this property over the years really shines through.The lovely welcoming basket of goods and the chance to purchase selected bottles of wine at the property are nice extra touches. We think that this is a special place to stay.It was only my wife and I who visited but the property would easily accommodate six people. We will definitely return to this property on our next visit to the Poitou-Charantes area of France.
