Le Moulin de l’Abbaye sits in the heart of the beautiful village of Brantôme, known as the “Venice of the Périgord”. One of the most impressive Village in the heart of la Dordogne! Nestled alongside the original mill-pond, this spot is one of the most delightful places in the Dordogne : this lovely and ancient mill itself is wreathed in ivy, and looks out over the 16th century masterpiece that is the right-angled bridge, the Pont Coudé bridge, the medieval Abbey founded by Charlemagne, with the monastery garden as well as the medieval tower and the Renaissance Pavilion. This charming Hotel, a member of Relais & Chateaux , is ideal for a relaxing stay, an excellent meal or both. The rooms are comfortable and relaxing. The public area (sitting area, the bar) are warm spaces and inviting.
Le Moulin de l’Abbaye is also the best location to discover the typical cuisine of the Dordogne : the gourmet restaurant Moulin de l’Abbaye and its shady riverside terrace propose regional dishes, using fresh and local products. The best place to discover French flavours of le Périgord! In addition to the gourmet restaurant, le Moulin de l’Abbaye propose as well 2 local Bistrots Fil de l’Eau’and ‘Fil du Temps (a few mt from the Hotel by walk). Take some time to sit by the babbling River la Dronne, watching the water wheel roll lazily around, the brilliant flash of a kingfisher’s wing as it dives for fish, the mother duck shepherding her ducklings upstream. This is La Belle France!
Le Moulin de l’Abbaye will open the 17th of April until the 1st of November 2014.
