This 18th-century paper mill has been given a minimalist makeover inside, with vast open-plan rooms and an ultra-modern vibe. It’s nestled in the shallow Couze valley and surrounded by woodlands and rivers.
Rebecca and Greg live in the mill house behind you and leave a generous welcome basket of wine, beer, bread, cheese and fruit plus the basics – they’ll happily advise on what to see and do in the area. Find plenty of space to cook together and a summer kitchen and barbecue, plus an elegant swimming pool to laze beside.
Historic Beaumont is a five-minute drive (or you can walk through the woods and fields in 45 minutes) and has restaurants, food shops and the best quincaillerie for miles, selling everything from crayfish pots to bells. Walk along or canoe on the Dordogne in Le Buisson or visit the medieval village of Issigeac for an amazing Sunday market.
