We are really happy that you enjoyed your holiday at Le Moulin; as you have said, it is a great place to spend time with large family groups and indeed, a group of friends. Le Moulin is in a rural setting so it does take a little bit of effort to do the things we are more apt to take for granted; with this in mind, we provide all our guests with a comprehensive Welcome Pack with ideas of places to visit, things to do and indeed, directions and details of nearby shops, supermarkets and restaurants to try out. There are guests who have chosen to stay with us at Le Moulin year after year and we are happy that, like them, you have taken the time to give us such a positive review and have given us such a high rating. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
