This enchanting watermill, still boasting original workings, is set in 18 acres of private woodland and approached by its own bridge over a bubbling stream. The spacious timbered interior has three large double bedrooms, an open plan living area, overlooked by a gallery landing, with comfy sofas, fireplace and dining area. Le Moulin is equipped with satellite TV, VHS and DVD players, a PS3 (with its own monitor) and music systems (inc 2 i-pod docking stations). The tiled kitchen is well equipped. Outside, there's an eating terrace (a wonderful suntrap in the mornings with a patio heater for cooler evenings) and barbecue. The decked heated swimming pool (10m x 4.5 m) is visible from the house and is fitted with a safety alarm. Nearby towns are well equipped for shopping, eating and sightseeing. Featured in 'The Perfect Country Cottage' by Bill Laws (Conran Octopus), the extensive private land is a popular hunting ground for mushrooms and chestnuts and for fishing and birdwatching.
The house can be reached from Rodez 50 mins (serviced by Ryanair), Carcassonne (1 hr 50 mins) and Toulouse (1 hr 40 mins). Cordes-sur-ciel and Albi are easily accessible for day trips.
The beautiful market town of Villefranche de rouergue is 25 minutes away with all shopping facilities. There are picturesque villages in all directions, notably the medieval castle dominated Najac, with its excellent kayaking, sporting facilities and excellent restaurants.
Cordes sur Ciel makes for a magical day out. In high summer there is a corn maze which will delight the whole family and the impressive Jardin des Plantes.
