Holiday Rental House
In the heart of the French countryside, stay in large beautifully renovated XIXth century country house. Surrounded by woodland and the river Anglin, you can enjoy beautiful walks, fishing and cycling or just lie by the pool during the day; have a barbecue while sipping wine from the region in the evening and fall asleep to the sound of the crickets and river at night. Close to the Chateaux of the Loire and the Futuroscope theme park, you can also make your stay a cultural one. The pool is available for use from beginning of May to end of September.

Had a fantastic week stay at Willow Cottage! The house has everything you could need, is in a beautiful location next to a river and lots of lovely villages in the area such as Gargilesse-Dampierre, Montresor, St Benoit du sault, Angles sur L’Anglin. We made great use of the fab pool, lovely terrace area and bikes provided for evening cycles. Owner Claudine was very nice and friendly and had kindly left lots of lovely goodies ie butter, eggs, wine, madeleines etc.. Thank you for a wonderful stay

This is a perfect holiday retreat for rest and relaxation as it is a remote and beautiful spot, the only sounds are the birds and crickets. Mrs Scott is a fantastic hostess and nothing is too much trouble for her; we had some problems with the wifi and she brought in IT people to help at a couple of hours notice. Apart from the wifi everything worked perfectly, the kitchen is well equipped and there were plenty of fans to try to keep cool during the hot weather. The pool is great and we spent a lot of time there; two further patios allow a choice of sun or shade during the day.

The location is wonderful, away from the road, down through fields and next to a river. The pool is kept immaculately by the host for whom nothing is too much trouble. We had use of bicycles and the rowing boat. Perfect.

Wow The willow cottage is amazing and the host Claudine is absolutely fantastic nothing is too much trouble, Please if you can make time to have a chat with her, the house was spotless there was not a speck of dust. my husband and son went on many adventures taking the boat up river and the bikes down to the village while my daughter, daughter-in law and myself made good use of the beautiful pool. The downstairs en-suite was lovely and spacious and the upstairs bathroom is huge, the balcony off the lounge gets the early morning sun so was a good place for breakfast, the walls are very thick so the house stays cool and there are lots of fans if needed. Photos do not do it justice. Le blanc is only 10 minutes away and has every thing you need, we Visited the restaurant Maision du parc with Claudine and the food was delicious, we don’t speak French so don’t venture out much when in France so we was so grateful to Claudine. I would not hesitate to book again, we came as strangers and when we left we had gained a new friend. Thank you Claudine for letting us stay at your beautiful home.

Le top du top. Tres belle maison très bien équipée et tout confort. Piscine exceptionnelle. Mme Scott est adorable. Son souci: le bien-être de ses hôtes. Merci Mme Scott de nous avoir aussi bien accueilli et merci pour les petites attentions lors de notre arrivée.

We had a wonderful stay in the Moulin. Beautiful and clean accommodation, beautiful and quiet area, and a very friendly owner. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and other goodies, and no effort was too much for her to make us comfortable. Top !

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.

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.

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

LE PLUS : l’accueil , la convivialité ,le calme . Madame SCOTT est chaleureuse et bienveillante !!! LE MOINS : nous sommes restés 3 jours et demi sans piscine , le service entretien n' a pas été à la hauteur , pompe à chaleur en panne, manque d'eau et sel , dans la piscine . En prenant la résidence nous nous sommes aperçu que la femme de ménage n'avait pas fait correctement son travail .

About the neighbourhood
The region can cater for a variety of tastes but prides itself on its natural beauty. The Moulin de Segere is located inside the Natural Park of the Brenne, also called the Park of the 1000 ponds, that has diverse wildlife and unspoilt beauty. We also recommend you visit the beautiful city of Chauvigny or Angles-sur-l'Anglin and its beautiful ruins. The region is close to the Chateaux of the Loire and the Futuroscope theme park if you want a nice daytrip.
Getting around
The best way to get around and visit the region is either by car or by bicycle. We would be happy to lend you a bicycle during your stay.
