Peace and tranquility, lost in France, escape to nature.

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Nov-2016
Mill house on lakeside situation in parkland

This is the place to be if you wish to have a break away from all distractions of the city and prefer to be surrounded by waterfalls, woods, extensive gardens and yet close to a large selection of shops and interesting attractions. Fishing, boating, stargazing, badmington, sunbathing, castle viewing and cycling are just some of the activities which are at the front door. Mega for kids and parents!

We inspected the property on arrival and decided not to risk our health and safety by statying so we left immediatly to check in at a local hotel.

This property gets a star only because the review form does not allow zero.

Location

From the Owner

I tried Canada, USA, then all the other countries in the northern hemisphere across Asia, through Turkey, India, Thailand, China and Japan to find a serious place to invest my millions, somewhere stable, somewhere with culture, and most importantly a healthy climate and after twenty years of searching decided that this property was better in all respects than ANYONE (including the Emperor of Japan) else could offer.

Cleaning £50

Refundable Damage Deposit £168
Stay tax 10.0% per night, per person. This amount will be due to the manager upon arrival. Does not apply to children under 16 years.

The river has been tested as safe for swimming but in order to protect myself from damage caused by irregular behaviour I advise guests that the river and all areas behind the red and white marked "no go" areas be avoided.

Facilities

From the Owner

Stars (for serious astronomers), wildlife (protected species), fish (the French take fishing seriously), cultural artifacts (more castles in this department, than in the whole of the rest France together), food (the French come to this area of the Dordogne for the excellent variety and quality of food), the silence (frightening for city dwellers who have never experienced zero noise pollution) and most importantly - the air. The surrounding forest and waterfall create ionised air which surpasses the quality of sea or mountain levels. Just being here makes you healthy.
