Individual cottages in valley of woodlands and meadows alongside stream

Le Moulin de Lantouy is an old watermill with converted mill buildings set in woodlands and meadows of approx. 10 acres in a very peaceful valley. The Lantouy river, whose source lies about 1 km away in woodlands, flows through the grounds and is surrounded by unspoilt wilderness. The water is very clear and suitable for bathing. There is direct access to the Lot river from one of the meadows.

The gites provide modern comfortable living in traditional centuries-old buildings which comprise the main watermill, miller’s cottage, a barn and a small watermill on it’s own island.

Situated 50 kms east of Cahors along the D662, near to Cajarc, in the vallee du Lot. The gites can accommodate between 2 and 10 people. Group bookings are possible.

                                                          Best romantic gites in the Lot, in the middle of nature and in a unique setting.

                                                          Andrea M.

                                                          The property is simply fantastic, a classic old style water mill, the former barn and the dovecote in the middle of the woods. The little stream running through the property makes it a perfect place for walks and refreshing swims in the river Lot.

                                                          It is still only few minutes from Cajarc where you can find all the amenities needed during holidays.

                                                          The owners are extremely reliable, gentle and amenable.

                                                          Best location to spend your holiday in the Lot/Dordogne region

                                                          Timo L.

                                                          Highly idyllic place with very accommodating hosts that made our stay perfect. I've visted Le Moulin de Lantouy three times already and will be back in the future. Highy recommended!

                                                          Lovely gites in a beautiful environnement, love this place!

                                                          Joyce D.

                                                          My husband and I fell in love with this place, we come back every year.

                                                          The gites are lovely and have everything you need. The hosts are the best, very caring and warm people!

                                                          For cavedivers it is also the best place to stay, there is a divehut where you can store all your dive equipment and you are very close to Landenouse and Ressel cave.

                                                          If you are a couple our a group, there is a gite for you at Moulin de Lantouy

                                                          Loved it!

                                                          stephan g.Armentieres, France

                                                          Had a really great stay here in La Libellule at the Moulin de Lantouy. The apartment was practical, attractive, roomy, clean and well equipped. Hosts Martin and Simon very friendly and helpful, if we asked for anything they brought it straight away. The garden is huge and sunny and it's a very short walk to the beautiful river Lot where you can swim and fish all day in peace and tranquillity. We liked it so much that we went back in October, this time staying in Le Merle which was still great although didn't get the sun quite so much. A great place to stay.

                                                          Wonderful, romantic, silent, beautiful

                                                          Fons H.Utrecht

                                                          We had a really great stay at the La Libellule, a nice and comfortable appartment/studio. Le Moulin de Lantouy is a very unique, rustique and beautiful place, like a big secret butterfly-garden where you can relax. It's near Cajarc, a sweet little French village with a butcher, bakery, supermarket etc.

                                                          We had, like every appartment, our own private garden and there is a big lawn for everyone with a ping-pong table, volleyball net and where you can play badminton or beach tennis (rackets included).

                                                          We would like to thank Martin for his hospitality and the great time we had!
