Former Watermill in Languedoc Rousillon

Former Water mill

Former Water mill

Le Moulin was originally a water mill and is around 300 years old.

The house has been separated to provide a large gite and private living quarters for the owners and has been renovated to a high standard whilst being careful to retain its rustic charm.

The gite is very spacious and comfortably provides accommodation for 9 people in an unspoiled and secluded but not isolated location. Perfect for idyllic French holidays in the Languedoc Roussillon region of Southern France.

The Languedoc Roussillon region just south of Toulouse in Southern France is an area of outstanding beauty and interest with a wealth of places to visit and enjoy including Carcassonne, Perpignan and Montpellier the capital. Ideal for a holiday in the South of France.

The region is famous for “les Chateaux du pays Cathar” with local castles, towns and villages dating back over 800 years. Historic towns such as Revel, Mirepoix, Foix, Fanjeaux, Limoux and Castres can all be reached within 30-60 minutes as can the three noted wine regions of the area– Fitou, Corbieres, and Minervois.

The nearest market town of Castelnaudary is famous for its cassoulet, which is served in almost every restaurant in town. Rick Stein of Padstow, Cornwall visited Castelnaudary when he traveled along the Canal du Midi exploring the local cuisine of the area.

Rennes Le Chateau of Da Vinci code fame is about an hour and twenty minutes drive via Limoux and is well worth a visit, anyone interested in the Knights Templar will be spoilt for choice of the places to visit in this region which is steeped in the history from that period.
