Overview
Holiday Rental House /
4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9
Castelnaudary, Aude, Languedoc-Roussillon
Le Moulin is a former watermill which has the rustic charm of a building that has been over 300 years in the making. Renovated to a high standard, the mill offers all the amenities one would expect on a home away from home holiday in the beautiful French countryside. There is no passing traffic to speak of, just the wildlife and the stars via a crystal clear sky to keep you entertained.

All the rooms are on one level with a single step up into two of the three bath/shower rooms and a single step up into the spacious and fully equipped kitchen diner. The two main bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms and a further two bedrooms share a large family bathroom, with shower and bidet.

The sitting room comes with UK satellite TV, a bluray/DVD player and VCR to accompany a library of old films for anyone feeling nostalgic. Outside is a large ter...

This gite is an easy 40 minutes drive from Carcasonne airport or a slightly longer drive from Toulouse. Hosts Brian and Angela have put a lot of care and attention to detail in creating the perfect place to relax and unwind in a beautiful rural setting amidst stunning fields of sunflowers and rolling hills. The gite is very well equipped... more

Many thanks for this lovely review. A lot of our guests take some time to cycle along the Canal Du Midi and it is an experience that never seems to disappoint. A great way to spend a few hours or a whole day if you want to, glad you got the chance to give it a try. more

What a fantastic holiday! My husband and I went away with 6 friends to this beautiful gite. It is perfect location for visiting Toulouse and carcassone as well as many other locations. The house is beautifully presented and we were overwhelmed to find a bottle of fizz and Easter eggs on the table upon arrival. The owners of the house... more

As you turn off the country lane into the drive to Le Moulin you are completely unaware of the gem that awaits you. Off the beaten track but close enough to everything that you need for a more than comfortable stay and many attractions if you want to sight see. When you arrive at the end of the long drive... more
