Lovely mill house in a very peaceful setting

By Elizabeth Delannoy Tester on 24-May-2022

We loved our stay in Le Moulin de Lapouze. The house is very comfortable with everything we needed. The setting is wonderful, so peaceful. We loved all the bird song and wildlife pottering about. The pool was also very refreshing on the hotter days. Would not hesitate to return one day.

If you looking for luxury with a peaceful setting, then this is the place. The home is set in a beautiful area in it's own grounds. The owners have obviously taken care to make sure you have everything you would need and more. The house is fully equipped for all our needs inside and out. On arrival we could see that we were in for a great week. The house was very clean and ready to start our holiday. The directions given were spot on and easy to follow. Great place for families and for couples. Pool had all we needed and was warm throughout the day. Kids loved watching sunsets then waited to watch bats in garden or balcony. Would love to go back again and hope to soon.

A beautiful gem tucked away in the countryside! The property & home were beautiful -lovely pool, yard, stream with waterfall, all well-maintained. The house was very comfortable -good sofa, good beds, kitchen with good appliances. We cooked most nights. The owner was helpful and easy to work with. The weather was unfortunately not very warm and yet we had just enough to do during our week stay, including canoeing on the river out of Brantome, exploring the Château de Bourdeilles & palace, visiting a few villages that are part of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France (Aubeterre-sur-Dronne with its church carved into the rock cliff, and the picturesque Saint-Jean-de-Cole). There were beautiful sunflower fields in the fields surrounding the gite. A few local shops for food & drink (baguette!) are within a 10-15 drive. Same for restaurants. Wifi was fine for our purposes. Was a really nice place to thaw out with our teenaged kids. During a sunny week, we would have spent loads of time poolside. We have fond memories of our week at this property and would certainly return.
