Thanks you Jan for your kind review. It was a pleasure to welcome you at Le Moulin de Ségère. I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you at the Willow cottage again in the future. I hope you had a safe journey back home.

“Total tranquility”
Reviewed October 8, 2019 for a stay in September 2019

This is a little jewel in the heart of the French countryside. We sat on the balcony and watched red squirrels and jays in the trees and deer in the fields. The river literally runs next to the house and that will be the only sound you will hear apart from the birdsong in the trees.
The house was spotlessly presented and the welcome pack made us feel very special. The heated pool was also cleaned and hoovered every day and we used it even though our stay was well into Autumn.
The owner, Mrs Scott, was fantastic. She made us feel so welcome and even offered to bring us croissants and bread in the morning and take our rubbish to bins every day.
I would say that the house is very near to a stream and a river so children would need supervision but, for us, the house, Mrs Scott and the surroundings were a perfect combination for a week of peace and quiet.

“Practically perfect!”
Reviewed September 23, 2019 for a stay in August 2019

Willow cottage - and Claudine,- live up to the description and previous reviews. The cottage is in a delightful location, in a valley beside the river with access onto an island. Being in a valley meant chasing the sun throughout the day, but this wasn’t a problem with two patio areas plus pool area.
The nearest town, Le Blanc, is a 10 minute drive away and has supermarkets etc. There are so many other towns and villages round about to visit, and there is plenty of information provided by Claudine to enable you to decide where to go and what to do.
If like us you want to relax a lot, spend a day watching the red squirrels and await the deer at dawn and dusk.
Booking a gite / rental property can be pot luck, despite checking reviews. So, we went armed with “essential” items for us, such as sharp kitchen knives, tea pot, comfortable outdoor chairs to relax in. We didn’t need any of them - this is the one property where everything is provided and of good quality!
Sadly, we were unable to use the boat on the river as the water level was so low this year....but that means a return visit will be on the cards.

“Idyllic cottage”
Reviewed August 12, 2019 for a stay in July 2019

Excellent location right by its own mill stream, island, pond and weir. Plenty of walks and cycle paths nearby if required.
Very tranquil, no cars or people passing as the lane is unused by other traffic as it leads only to the property.
Fantastic wildlife with deer in the field to watch, trout and crayfish in the river.
Pool excellent and heated to help in the mornings
Cottage has all the facilities you would want and only 10 minutes to the local town (Le Blanc)
Claudine the owner is very pleasant and helpful if you need anything.
Would thoroughly recommend if you want peace and quiet and getting away from crowds

“Lovely house and pool”
Reviewed June 23, 2019 for a stay in June 2019

Lovely peaceful house with pool. Mrs Scott met us and gave us some items to start our holiday with.Mrs Scott was always on hand if anything was needed and we enjoyed are little chats.

Only wish weather had been kinder to us, but still enjoyed the history of the area.

Thank you very much to you and your family for staying at Willow Cottage. In spite of the surprisingly poor weather for the season, you put a brave face on it all. Really enjoyed our chats in English and in French! I hope you welcome you all at the Moulin de Segere again soon.
