CHEF’S ROOM now open

Guests from Rotterdam were the first to settle into the new room just off Bruno’s country kitchen in our 12th century water mill. I think they were a little surprised when Bruno met them at the end of the lane and led them down the steps and across a wooden foot bridge. They walked along cobble stone path (beside the vegetable garden) that leads to the mill’s little red door that open directly into the kitchen.

This is were some of our cooking classes take place and Bruno has had his “table d’hôte” or guest table at lunch every saturday 10 years. Jean Pierre and Denise Moullé always bring their guests from www.twobordelais.com to the mill’s kitchen table.

We have tried to keep the guest room in the same spirit as the rest of the mill…though I’m sure that the miller  never had such a comfortable bed !

The window to the east looks out over the stream that runs under the mill to the fields and woods…. with a few ducks bantering in the water.

The room is full of Bruno’s most interesting cookbooks…in both English  and French !

The full bath was Bruno’s work. And I must admit, the high skylight cieling and great open shower were certainly worth the wait.

The price is 75€/night and, if you stay a while, as our Dutch guest did, you’re welcome to use the kitchen too.
