If you’re looking for somewhere utterly unique for your next holiday then how about an ancient windmill in the French mountains? You don’t find accommodation much more charming and characterful than this, 20km from Lagrasse, known as one of France’s most beautiful villages.
Built in 1790, Moulin de Bissat sits in a secluded elevated position with marvellous views of the surrounding mountains. The interiors have been tastefully and cleverly updated, there is a private terrace/garden as well as a shared swimming pool, and within the area you can hike, bike and horse ride or visit castles, vineyards and historic towns. This lovely little spot offers a complete escape.

The windmill feels very peaceful and isolated but the centre of Montlaur, where there is a shop, is just 500 metres away. It’s a little further to supermarkets (20km), restaurants (10km) and sandy beaches (40km) but in the local area you can go hiking, hire mountain bikes, play golf and tennis, fish and horse ride, or you could discover castles, vineyards and the UNESCO city of Carcassonne. In Lagrasse itself there are shops, restaurants and cultural entertainments aplenty.
Access is via an unmade road and a car is recommended.
