I was born in Marseille but moved to the Perigord when my father's family came from. The family had been well established here since before my great-great grandfather who was the Notaire of Brantome, my Great grandfather Robert Dessales Quentin a well known painter and I am proud that there is a street named after him in Brantome.
This property was given to me by my Grandfather Jaques but at that time it was practically a ruin but I had always loved the setting and knew I coukd lovingly restore it. Restoration completed 3 yrs ago when I tgen started to let it with great sucess. It is idilic, tranquille and so beautiful. Even sounds wonderful....with the music of the water flow.
The views from the large windows are amazing. The river below so crystal clear that fish can be watched. Water hens and many birds deer too at times. Is is so peaceful yet just a short drive to civilisation!
Le Moulin (Watermill) described by others as being a Romantic Unique Haven is situated just outside the medieval village of Bourdeilles with it's small village shops and restaurants. Also close to the historic market town of Brantome 'The Venice of the Perigord'. There you will find small shops, over 20 places to eat in a beautiful setting together with the weekly colourful market.
The Moulin is surrounded by breathtaking countryside and ofcourse on the river with it's own private section of the river and an island too. Perfect for bird watching and if you like fishing you have your own private 600 metres of fishing bank during your stay. For sunbathing there is a large terrace that straggles the river so a spectacular place to eat or relax. Marvelous river views from every window. Peace and tranquility if you want it and only a a short 10 min walk to the village or 5 mins by canoe which is provided for your use and 5mins by car. Further afield there are many places of interest to visit such as the medieval city of Perigueux, chateaux, vineyards, historical sites, village fayres etc, etc.
