We came to stay here and loved it so much we bought the whole place!

The gîtes are set in the mature, landscaped gardens of the old mill. The river runs through the bottom of the garden and feeds the mill stream. A lake is the centre piece of the garden and encourages wildlife. There are plenty of ornamental trees, shrubs and secret places to relax, read and fall asleep in.

There are a number of outside eating areas to share, or not, plus a barbecue of course.

The pool is the perfect place to enjoy the sunshine but we also provide bikes to ride, boules to play and croquet to wonder at.

It’s a mile or so to Verteuil en Charente, a picturesque French town with a 12th Century chateau overlooking the river. Magnifique! Here you can try the local restaurants or café/wine bar, buy your croissants and enjoy the scenery.

There are many miles of quiet country lanes to walk or cycle to discover hidden villages and French rural goodies. French markets, supermarkets and all other amenities are a 10 minute drive away in Ruffec.
