General Description

A charming and handsome mid 19th century converted mill bordering the tranquil river Auvézère. Ideal rural retreat for a group of ten friends or family, or alternatively for just a couple. The mill is arranged over three floors with a vast open-plan kitchen/dining room. It also has a spacious terrace for sundowners, with an outside dining table, overlooking the unspoilt countryside. The river is a source of extensive wildlife and fabulous places for exploring and barbecue pic-nics. The house has been our French base for over 25 years and we can provide you with a mass of things to see and do in the area (ranging from chateaux and gardens to tree-walking and wake-boarding). We have a cordon bleu trained housekeeper who can help take the responsibility of cooking at home. Alternatively, there is a great selection of local restaurants amidst this productive region for Foie Gras, Truffles and Walnuts.
