If you like history, outdoor life and easy access to local amenities, you'll love Le Moulin.

Built in the late 18th century to serve the adjacent chateau, this restored former watermill retains many original features including the old millroom and a 100m watercourse.

Your 11m private pool is secluded and attracts sun from dawn to dusk. It is surrounded by 100sqm of poolside terracing and decking. Le Moulin guests have exclusive access to the pool, poolside terraces and sports facilities.

A beautiful large fir-tree gives plenty of natural shade around the pool.

Le Moulin is set within two acres of gardens and grounds - plenty of space for exploring, football, trampolining, barbecuing and relaxing.

Kids love to play in the the large, secure open spaces which include lawns front and back, a wooded area, a bamboo grove and a rive...

Interaction with guests
We, that is Mick; Helen and our son Harry are easy to contact as we live in the rooms above the three gites. This means we are on hand to provide help, information and advice as required. However, two acres of garden means everyone can have plenty of space to themselves.

Getting around
We recommend having a car but it is not essential and we have had many guests over the years who come 'car-free'. There is a year-round bus service into Carcassonne which costs 1 euro a journey and operates several times a day. We have bikes which we lend to guests which are great for exploring the local area. There are several walks direct from Le Moulin through vineyards and countryside to local wine domaines. There are taxis plus we operate an unofficial taxi service when available for 15 euros anywhere in the Carcassonne area. Carcassonne railway station has direct connections to Toulouse, Narbonne, Barcelona and Quillan in the foothills of the Pyrennees. Journeys to Quillan cost 1 euro.
