“Wonderful stay at a beautiful Mill on the river”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2015

We really enjoyed our stay. Wonderful, warm sunshine for almost the entire time we were there, which allowed us to take full advantage of the riverside garden. We spent many an hour relaxing and the children loved the weir and fishing in the river. The area is great! Quite rural but this means beautiful scenery and pleasant walks. There are plenty of villages nearby, each with the classic bars, restaurants and French bakers. The patisserie here is really good - I never got tired of the delicious tarts and pastries, or indeed the freshest bread every day that tastes nothing like the stuff you get in the supermarket. We took the children to Cerza Zoo, which is not far and they had a great time with a very safari-like setup. We also took a trip to the coast one day which is not far. All-in-all a very enjoyable and relaxing week spent away from the relentless pace of things back in the UK.
