Photos and Description of this Mareuil holiday house
A historic and unique holiday home in the Perigord Limousin National Park

Upper Floor:

The Mill has three spacious bedrooms, suitable for up to 8 people. The master bedroom is the former grain storage and milling area. With oak beams and a four poster bed and en-suite bathroom, it spans the house, with large windows looking out out on woods and waterways on both sides. The second double bedroom room features a stone fireplace and traditional stone cupboard. The third bedroom, the 'childrens' room' has room for four, and again features a large fireplace and original oak floors. A new bathroom has been installed with a great shower and a view on the river.

Downstairs: There is a large and recently installed open plan kitchen / living room that opens onto the back terrace and meadow of the Mill. This is the heart of the house. There is a big family table, a comfortable sofa, window seats looking over the river, shelves of books about the area and a well equipped kitchen. Adjoining this room is a library with television, DVD player and cupboard full of board games, that leads in turn to the conservatory. This is a nice place to sit in the evenings or when the weather is bad. Off the kitchen is a music room, with a more formal dining table and sofa. This is a cool quiet room where we often keep a jigsaw puzzle on the go! In addition there is a utility room / cave with 2 washing machines and a tumble drier. There is a downstairs toilet.

Garden & Other Buildings:

The beauty of the Mill is that you are surrounded by water. The small river and mill stream run around the side and under the house. The garden includes an 'island' lawn looking out on the local château, caves, a small lake and wood. There is a barn where we keep bicycles and a smaller mill. The Mill pond is deep enough for a refreshing swim and the small rivers and mill streams are fun for paddling and looking for 'treasure'.

The local bakery which also stocks basic food items (as well as being a great source of info about everything going on in the area!) is a short walk or bike ride away in the nearby village of St Sulpice de Mareuil. The house is in a conservation area (see www.parc-naturel-perigord-limousin.fr) with oak, chestnut and pine woods: home of badgers, foxes, deer, otters and kingfishers. There are many lovely walks in the vicinity and we have lots of maps and guide books available in the mill.

The Dordogne is one of the richest historical areas in France. There are 4,000 châteaux in the Dordogne complete with medieval jousting, archery and games, with the beautiful towns of Brantome, Perigeux, Nontron, Riberac, Verteilac, Bourdeiles, and the city of Angouleme nearby.

There are also numerous prehistoric caves, such as the world famous caves at Lascaux and brilliant crystal caves at Le Grand Roc. There is canoeing, horse riding, rock climbing, hot air ballooning, paragliding, go-carting available in the area. If this is too much for you, just enjoy eating out or wandering through the area’s numerous markets and vineyards where you can enjoy some of the world’s best food.

We have a comprehensive guide to the area at the Mill so you can make the most of your stay. There are bicycles in the barn (for 2 adults and 3 children) which you are welcome to borrow.

Stunning place in a really great French location.

Genuinely lovely house, with lots of great features. The rushing water of the mill-stream, swimming in the mill pond, lovely garden for kids to rush about in, and surrounding villages and towns offering loads to do - this really is a great base for a stay in the Dordogne.
Kitchen area is huge and excellently fitted out, and lounge areas are very comfortable, all retaining great French character. It's a real family home, and a very relaxing place to be. Loved it.

You couldn't really ask for a better family base for exploring the Dordogne. Located in beautiful countryside, on a stream, the house is huge, tastefully restored and well equipped. There is masses to do in the local area, the owners were very helpful and we will definitely book again.

Excellent place for exploring the Perigord Vert!

Le Moulin de Connezac is a house that has the charm of centuries of history, whilst equiped with all the amenities you expect of a modern house. Each room in the house has its own atmosphere, and if you like cooking (as we do) the beautifully big kitchen is equiped with all you need. You can sit outside inner garden enclosed by little streams, or by the natural swimming pool on the other side and enjoy the weather and the birds in the garden. The area is close to a natural conservancy, and there are many interesting birds to spot (such as the almost-resident black woodpecker and the honeybird hovering overhead).

From the mill, we undertook many day-trips in the neighbourhood. This side of the Dordogne is less-travelled than some areas more to the south, so the sites were never too crowded.

If you are looking for a quiet but comfortable place to wind-down from a busy city-life, you will love the Moulin de Connezac!

We arrived to be greeted with wine and elegant little Christmas decorations around the house. Everything was clean and the house just as described. The wood stove soon warmed up the snug but the heating was perfectly adequate. The house was a wonderful retreat and great walks around. In summer the place would have offered us much more to do so we would love to go back again in summer. We thoroughly recommend this lovely holiday home with the added bonus of the mill stream under the house and through the spacious gardens. Beautiful even in winter! The caretakers very helpful when our son fell ill and local doctor soon put him right, have no qualms, come and enjoy this unique home that feels like a home from home.

Wonderful spacious property full of character

The pictures on the internet do not do this property justice. It is a fantastically spacious old property full of charm and character with every 'home from home' convenience. The setting is idyllic with a secluded garden surrounded by the mill stream which is ideal for sunbathing all day long.
The owners were very helpful before our stay and the caretakers who live in the next village were very welcoming and helpful when we arrived.
The property is a great rural retreat for those looking for peace and quiet and yet only 20 minutes drive from the beautiful town of Brantome.
We enjoyed exploring the local area by bike and some bikes are available in the property for guests use. We regularly cycled to the friendly local bakery ( about a mile away) for fresh bread and cakes.
Overall we had a great holiday. This house is one of the best we have ever stayed in and I would thoroughly recommend it.
