We arrived at Moulin de Vigonac after a 400 mile drive and having rejected a so called Shabby Chic hotel in Saumur.This hotel is exactly the opposite of what we found in Saumur and is a labour of love for the Alexeline family who not only operate this fantastic Oasis of a hotel but over a period of 10 years have created a truly impressive operation.Nestling in its own grounds at the end of its own white gravel drive is a true jewel of a find.Front of house impressively run by Oliver and his mother whilst his brother and father cover both Sommelier and very capable chef.The rooms are very tastefully decorated with first cass fixtures and fittings.Breakfast is probably one of the best in France with a perfect outside area adjacent to the Old Mill from which this Hotel takes its name.We will definitely return but fear it will not be too long before the word spreads and staying here will become only bookable a long time in advance.
