The tell tale sound of the running mill race stream, soothed us to sleep like only the arms of Morpheus can. That and Pascal's lovely house white wine. We booked for a self catering apartment. But by the time our marvelous hosts had cooked our pizza, served us coffee on the terrace and generously sampled a litre of their house wine, we were almost half board. Next trip we will go the whole hog, B&B!. We had 3 idyllic nights at Le Moulin and 3 great days cycling the local canal and old railway tracks. All very easy going. Just like Le Moulin. Thank you very much. Loved our stay with you.
The rating is based on the location and grounds- magnificent in its beauty. The nature and environment is simply breathtaking and for this alone the place is worth a visit. The hostess, Isabelle, despite language barrier, tries very hard to communicate, is amazingly welcoming, kind and very sweet. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome during the brief time we had with her. The rooms that are not in the main building are very musty because these are stone structures that keep dampness. They are very clean, with a mix of furnishings that may be a bit too much for some, and charming to others. Simply be aware of the damp smell at lower level. A few concerns that do not deter from the property and may not be an issue for most, but that we noted: Perhaps due to hard times, there is too much of a nickle and dime attitude at this establishment, and the assumption is that the guests are idiots who cannot do math, or that the only option is to 'cancel if you are displeased' with inappropriate overcharges, as suggested by the owner in response to our review of discrepancies in pricing after our stay here. This kind of attitude is unfortunate. While I understand the need to survive in hard times, an extra charge of 25 euro for use of a bed that is already a permanent feature and part of the furniture in a room we rented, in all the photos, and which is clearly listed on booking-dot-com as part of this room - whether booked with 1 person or 3, was in poor taste. The cost of this room, for 2 individuals, clearly listed on the website used to book, is not what were charged. Instead, per the rates listed on those dates, we were charged as if 3 people had stayed in this room, consumed breakfast, etc SIMPLY BECAUSE WE SENT AN EMAIL CONFIRMING THE PRESENCE OF 2 beds. We essentially booked a triple with only 2 people, and yet got the surcharge added for 3. Had we not queried the existence of this bed in advance of arrival, we would have paid the ACTUAL cost of this room for 2 people. We didn't argue this clearly inappropriate surcharge, it didn't seem worth it, but the fact that we accepted to pay it after it was communicated appears to be an argument that it was appropriate, The host stated "if you were unhappy with it, why didn't you cancel" -- we selected to agree to pay it, as it is a small amount, simply because we were asked to do so. This doesn't mean it is RIGHT. This response, however, was par for the course with the hospitality of the male host at this property, who despite full English abilities, appears to have little interest in guests, or, perhaps, particularly, guests from certain countries, as small side comments may indicate. This could also be a function of just a moment in time. We are well traveled enough to know when we feel welcome, and when we are merely a necessity endured, albeit politely. Again, the details of the small interactions that make one feel uncomfortable is not the matter -- but the assumption of the excuses made in response to reviews of said behaviors is that the guests (or readers) are simple-minded enough to be appeased by ridiculous reasoning -- adding insult to what would otherwise be very slight injury. Perhaps there is more to be learned in the manner in which a posted review was responded to.... In any event, the subtleties of the interactions here would perhaps be a nonissue for the average French guest, as indicated by the overwhelming positive reviews -- or the beauty of the location would trump all else. It is certainly a lovely place, and we are glad to have seen it - and 25 euros is NOT the basis for the parts of the stay that we didn't find as positive.…
We are now regulars and stayed at the Moulin for a couple of nights or more in the last few summers. The Moulin is extremely conveniently located for us, but we wanted to shout out loud how Pascal and Isabelle keep on improving and working so hard in making sure everyone is having a great time. They are the perfect hosts, juggling outside responsibilities as well as the running of a substantial house, nothing ever seems too much. And they do love speaking English, quite unusual for the area, believe me. The Moulin is a really lovely place, the setting is superb, the rooms are generous and the breakfast incredibly fresh and plentiful. Pascal offers "table d'hote" which is an evening meal, and that is also fantastic value.
Stayed in this beautiful idyllic place for one night on a cycling tour through the region. The host was extremely amenable, and the rooms were opulent and of a good size with comfortable beds. They were very accommodating for storage of the cycles, and the big surprise is the games room withe both a snooker and billiard table. The evening meal was cooked by the host and was superb. After a good nights sleep, the breakfast was a wonder with crepes included freshly made by the host. The setting of the old mill is extremely peaceful, and you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of running water. You will not be disappointed if you are in the neighborhood and decide to call in here for a nights stay.
Stayed here for one night (9th July) whilst en route to Roscoff. We had a very warm welcome from Pascal. Our room was clean and well equipped. The evening meal was excellent, varied and good value for money. We shared our table with a French couple from the Loire valley. Breakfast was also varied with plenty of home cooked items. We will certainly return to this delightful spot and, hopefully, our return will be soon. Many thanks for a very pleasant stay. Jen and Andy Shelton .
