This old watermill in France is situated on a small island with a waterfall alongside. It is set in woodlands and meadows of approx. 10 acres in a very peaceful valley. The Lantouy river, whose source lies about 1km away in woodlands, flows through the grounds and is surrounded by unspoilt wilderness. This is the perfect setting for a holiday in a watermill.
La Mouline is approached via a track and then across a bridge and is set in a valley of woodlands and meadows with direct access to the river Lot. The Lantouy itself is a pure underground water source creating a lake in nearby woods from which runs the river Lantouy through the grounds, bringing with it a richness of nature and peacefulness. There are no distractions nearby to disturb the quiet. The gîte provides its own privacy, whilst embracing the abundant nature all around. The cottage is self catering and has hot water, heating and a log burner for the cooler months. There is a barbecue for your use. Ice making machine, freezer and laundry facilities are also available. A stay in a watermill is very much about being at one with nature, so whether you prefer an active time or something more restful, La Mouline is the ideal retreat.
There`s masses to do in the surrounding area for children and adults alike. At the Moulin itself you can go canoeing (we can organise informal canoe tours on the River Lot and Cele), swimming (in the river - the water is very clear and suitable for bathing), fishing, volleyball, boules, table tennis and of course exploring the extensive grounds. Locally, Cajarc village has all the shops you’ll need for necessities with plenty of local produce, bars, a tourist office and other local amenities. There are other activities available from here including water-skiing, river trips, swimming (pool), bicycle hire and tennis. The surrounding area has lots of walking opportunities, horse riding, potholing, skiing, boat trips, wine tasting and sightseeing in the beautiful nearby towns and villages.
