About Jason

It still gives us great pleasure to share our beautuful water mill with our clients after nearly 20 years !

Jason purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Jason chose Paizay-le-Tort

We bought this watermill as a ruin in 1994. It was it's superb river side setting and the beautiful valley it is set in that sold it to us!

What makes this cottage unique

This holiday let is unique as it's actualy in a watermill with water running through the kitchen. We are in an un spoilt area of France with plenty to do for all ages and only 1hr from the coast !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jim, Nicole, James

When I first saw the pictures of "Le Moulin De La Combe" on the website, I said to my husband, "I don't care where it is, that is where I would like to stay". On arrival we realised that as beautiful as the photos are, they do not do justice to just how lovely the Moulin and it's grounds actually are. Jason & Marie-Laure have done an absolutely incredible job. The workmanship and restoration of the Moulin are superb. Much as I hate to beat a dead horse, idyllic and relaxing best describe our 2 weeks here. Definantly a "home from home" everything we could possibly need (and more) was supplied. The local markets are excellent along with the local boulanger in Melle. We had wonderful meals in La Rochelle, St Martin on the Isle de Ré. Cognac and the Marais Poitevin (Green Venice, hundreds of km's of little canals) are worth a visit and Poitiers is a pleasant, bustling university town. We would definitely recommend the "Moulin de la Combe" to anyone planning to visit the area. The table tennis net is now regulation height! The green direction signs were invaluable in simplifying the last few km's of our journey which we often find is the most difficult part of our trip. The fleches part of the arrows for the dart board could be a little longer for those of us who's eyesight is not what it was. All in all a wonderful vacation in beautiful surroundings with terrific hosts. Un grand merci a la famille

A wonderful peaceful and relaxing gite. Would definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5

The Moulin mill is a perfect location where you can relax or enjoy the many activities in equal measure. We made full use of the outdoor games, even the local tennis court and a bike ride along the country lanes into Melle is recommended.

Thank you to Jason and Marie-laure for making us so welcome and loved the duck eggs. Will definitely stay again.
