You arrive to the enchantment of authentic old stone walls and wild rushing water. 1737 is engraved over the door of the mill, the wheel and millstones lie intact, to be remounted “sometime”. Alongside the river, the big meadow begs for deckchairs and ball games and good timber furniture beckons from the barbecue terrace. The recently decorated house is generous and relaxing inside: white, soft blues and greys with an attractive mix of old and new furniture, two superb stone fireplaces (logs provided) and a good-sized kitchen/diner. You’ll find a bottle of grape juice made by the friendly owners who live nearby. In the sitting room, a big drawer holds plenty of board games, there are books and DVDs and a long inviting sofa. The double room is beyond, as are the big shower room, laundry and wc. The single bed is up on the wide mezzanine leading to the twin room; this could be the children’s floor. Swim in the millpool, fish from the weir, canoe up to Quissac, watch kingfishers… and there are masses of outings: the Cévennes, the Camargue, Roman Nîmes, lovely and lively Montpellier.
