It’s just plain lovely, this little group of stone buildings with a wooden footbridge over the rushing river, ancient steps, moss, trees, a fine garden with flowers and hens. The age-old converted mill is for the family, the charming hunting lodge is for guests. Patricia’s talented decoration weaves nostalgia with designer tones; the spiral stair winds to an enchanting dayroom with guest kitchen and homemade preserves (superb fig jam); sun pours into the bedroom at the top. Woods for nut-gathering, beaches nearby, table tennis and that playful stream. Your hosts are sweet and love having families.
