FAIRY TALE ISOLATED WATERMILL WITH HEATED POOL

Lescure-Jaoul House Rental Photos and Description

3 double bedrooms with basins and 2 bathrooms.

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.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

..I keeping drifting off and thinking of those fab pink geraniums you put in -
so clever all that colour with the green beyond...Fab too to think we'll be
there again next year.
..I thought I would just drop you a quick e-mail to say what a fantastic holiday we had. You have a beautiful home in France and we enjoyed every minute of it . William (our two year old) really loved it - he couldn't decide whether the pool or the river was best! He kept referring to it as his 'new house' and he has been very upset dropping him off at nursery since we've got back and keeps wanting to go back.
..what a lovely time we had at your beautiful home. It was like stepping into a fairy tale with all the beautiful butterflies everywhere.

AWAY FROM IT ALL . . . .

  • 5 of 5
There's very little we can add to the previous reviews, except to say you can only really appreciate the beauty and tranquility of the Moulin once you've visited - and given we were there with our 9 month old twins, tranquility isn't a word we use lightly! It's a truly fantastic place, in a fantastic setting with an interior that could grace the pages of any style magazine.
We'd love to return when the children are older, so long as Auntie and Uncle promise to come along with us again to do the wonderful cooking ;o)

COULDN'T BE BETTER!

Couldn't be better!

Absolutely stunning! The web pictures really don't do it justice, total peace, perfect place to spend a holiday with or without children. 4 Children insisting they wanted to buy the house with their piggy bank money and live there forever! One hundred percent recommended.

PURE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I really can't rate this Moulin highly enough. If only there was a 6 star option. The minute I stepped through the door I started to relax. It's beautifully but not fussily furnished, it's got a homely feel that's often lacking in holiday lets and everything you need (and didn't even know you needed) has been thought of. The surrounding countryside is stunning, the local towns unspoiled and you can live la vie Francaise as much or as little as you choose. A gorgeous, peaceful, happy, relaxing place. I want to go back.

PERFECT PEACE

  • 5 of 5
The prettiest house we've ever stayed in; beautifully decorated, perfectly restored and totally private. The kitchen has everything you need, a huge array of cooking/serving equipment, wonderful beds and bedding and the owners had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. The pool is large, warm and clean and the huge garden attracts the largest number of butterflies we've ever seen. Lizards bask in the sun, the stream burbles in the background and there are long wooded walks to enjoy in the woods that surround the house. It is isolated, it's a 20ish min drive to a good supermarket, but there are pretty towns (Najac, Villefrance to name two) to visit for a day trip. Fantastic canoeing and aerial adventure course at Najac, also great restaurant (Belle Rive I think) with an amazing view of the castle. The owner, Fiona, is lovely too, very friendly and helpful.

WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I just spent one magical week at le moulin. We arrived like urban refugees-- stressed, exhausted & in need of clean air, plenty of sunshine and a beautiful environment. Wow did we get it in spades!!!

The pool is wonderful, the house a delight with everything one could ever want and the grounds are rustic and charming.

Really, the issue for us is: when can we go back???!
