Amazingly beautiful old mill with functioning water wheel in the lounge!! The owners are helpful and friendly. The living area is basic but adequate. The bedrooms are tastefully furnished all with shower/bathrooms. The garden is beautiful and very big with tables, chairs, washing line and bbq. The pool area is fenced off and is equipped with sun loungers and chairs. The route to the garden is interesting as you have to walk across the little bridges over the stream that runs under the house. There are pretty dragonflies, frogs and small lizards in and around the stream.
The farm next door sells its own butter, milk and cheese - twice a day you can watch the cows walking along the road past the front of the house to be milked!
Although there are no shops in the village of Annepont, the 2 neighbouring villages - Taillebourg and Saint Savinien do have supplies and facilities.
The property is not great for anyone with mobility problems as there are a lot of steps and uneven surfaces.
Overall though it is a wonderful property and we had a fantastic holiday.
Lovely former bake house in grounds of historic water mill. One room with shower room, beautifully renovated. Outdoor space in grounds of mill, private seating and barbecue area next to mill stream - enjoy a drop of the local tipple while watching the dragonflies feeding. Owners resident on site, very helpful and willing to make suggestions for local facilities although they have limited English. Only drawback traffic noise from road close by, screened by trees. Not a major problem, we soon got used to it. Overall verdict - lovely!
