Moulin de Vigonac

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • An idyllic location on the banks of the River Dronne
  • Rustic rooms with exposed beams are full of countryside charm
  • Stay in a 16th-century watermill with a colourful history
  • Quiet pool area overlooking the parkland


The Moulin de Vigonac hotel is housed in a former watermill by the River Dronne. Built in the 16th-century, it was once run by Benedictine monks before it was sold at the start of the French Revolution. It became a shoe and slipper workshop and was bought in the 1980s by the Alexeline family, who restored it to its former glory.

Set in landscaped gardens, the mill is 3.7 kilometres from the 8th-century Brant?me Abbey, and a 5-minute drive from the medieval village of Brant?me. Hire a bike and cycle along the river walk, or wander around the tree-lined park within the hotel grounds.

The hotel has an outdoor pool, a sunny terrace and a restaurant that serves fresh produce bought at the local market. Over dinner you can hear the sound of the river under the mill. Standout dishes include rib of veal with wild mushrooms, and duck confit with pommes sarladaises. Continental breakfast is 16€ per day, or included in the half-board rate.

The elegant bedrooms with cosy furnishings overlook the park, pool or courtyard. Some have exposed beams, while all have flat-screen satellite TVs, mini bars and free Wi-Fi. They’re named after the females in the family and each one is different -- Camille has a Provence-style bathroom while Eve has a stylish dressing room.
