“A tranquil hideaway not far from a bustling town”
A beautiful old mill complete with mill-race, mill ponds, and weir. Located a few kilometres from the busy little town of Monsegur and the shops in larger La Reole. It's a large, airy building with big rooms and high ceilings, all the bedrooms being en-suite. There are numerous areas to sit outside, providing perfect sun bathing or shade as one chooses. There are kayaks and small boats with the necessary life jackets and a plunge pool for cooling off making the whole place an ideal family venue. The owner, Victoria could not be more welcoming and helpful - we loved the fruit and vegetables that she gave us from her garden. There are plenty summertime day and night markets in the local area with night market at Duras being especially lively. Local vineyards and the Minsegur wine cooperative are excellent visits for wine lovers in this area where wines of all types can be found in abundance. Bordeaux, Bergerac and St Emilion are all within an easy days visit. As a family all of whom are adults we had a marvellous holiday with plenty to do and see but with space available to be separate if we wanted. We would definitely return.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking time to write a review.We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the mill and look forward to you returning.
“A truly unique and peaceful holiday experience”
Despite the weather being unseasonal for July we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Le Neuffons. The Mill is fabulous and remains traditional to it's roots. What you see in the pictures is definitely what you get. It was great to be able to get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life and retreat to tranquility provided by the Mill and it's setting. The constantly flowing water in every direction added to the peaceful environment and we often just found ourselves daydreaming whilst watching the sunset from the balcony. The kitchen is the best equipped kitchen we've seen in a holiday rental and despite a couple of teething problems with the hob, some helpful guidance by the owner on how to use it meant we experienced no further problems. The dishwasher was a great bonus meaning no holiday time was lost to washing up :) and the big American style fridge with built in ice maker was great. Locationally the Mill is set well for visits to all the main attractions of the area with Bordeaux, St Emilion, Bergerac all within an hours drive, and plenty of smaller towns, attractions and vineyards even closer. We would definitely recommend a trip down to the market in Monsegur (the night market in particular was a real treat). The owners welcome and hospitality was great throughout or stay with the added gift of fresh vegetables from her garden most days. There are books and board-games a-plenty throughout the property, plus maps of the local areas should you want to venture out on foot, bike or canoe. The only improvement we could suggest would be the addition of a second sofa to the top floor living area, giving more options for lounging after too much cheese and wine, but that's just being picky!
