It was clean, comfortable with a beautiful garden that we could use. The owner Huges was kindness its self. Anything we needed, he helped. The surrounding area is quite beautiful , but you do need a car. The only thing we found difficult were the restaurant times. Its ok if you like a 3 course lunch only between 12.30 & 2pm. You are very lucky to find restaurants open in the evenings, especially earlier in the week. Also ALL the shops close during the lunch break. Having said that we had a lovely restful time, with really nice sunny weather.

The garden setting (complete with occasional red squirrel) was delightful and an oasis of calm after a day out. Everything was very convenient with several lovely beaches within walking distance, as well as a local supermarket and boulangerie. We used local restaurants in the evenings and also cooked at home on the terrace. Thank you Daniel and Danie for making our stay so enjoyable. We would be very happy to return here and recommend it highly.

We had a wonderful, relaxing time. The hosts ensured we had everything we needed and ewre always available for answers to questions we had. It takes a couple of days to get used to the stairs despite being warned, however it did not detract from the gorgeous originality of staying in an old wind mill (plus it helps wit fitness a little)! Our little one had use of the swings etc in the shared garden and we visited the chickens and sheep. there is even a peacock who wonders past at times.. Location wise we were 30 minutes from Nantes which is a stunning city to visit. Geurande also was interesting. We experienced a heatwave so visited different beaches, the best was St Michel Chef Chef as not as busy as La Baule/Porniche etc. Overall we would definitely recommend as a lovely holiday location, in an original building with lovely hosts!
