About Mr Robert Smith

I am an ex flight purser from a major British long haul carrier,

I took early retirement 1998 .We bought Le moulin in 2001 and started renting the compleated gite in 2004 however the property is old (108 years) and so needs constant T.L.C which is pretty much a full time job

Mr Robert Smith purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Mr Robert Smith chose Carcassonne

We love this area so close to the sea and mountains situated in beautiful wine making country, also close to all amenities

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bob:

Just wanted to let you know we made it home safely. Bev and I also wanted to let you know that we really appreciated the advice you provided to us each day when we were making our touring plans. Your insight into the sites to be visited was invaluable to us. Renne le Chateau was certainly one of the highlights as was Cabrespine. All of your input really enhanced the enjoyment of our vacation. If any of our friends are looking at travelling to your part of the world we will most definitely recommend they stay at your gite.

In the meantime, enjoy your music and the downtime of the off-season.

Très agréable maison de vacances familiales, accueil chaleureux du propriétaire

  • 4 of 5

A quelques minutes de la cité de Carcassonne, de multiples visites touristiques à découvrir et de nombreux commerces, nous avons apprécié nous reposer en famille dans ce grand jardin aménagé avec goût, à l'ambiance très agréable. La propriété est bien clôturée et l'on peut profiter de la piscine très bien entretenue et ensoleillée, toute la journée. Bob, le propriétaire, anglophone est très sympathique et discret.

Seul petit bémol, pour les gens qui cherchent le calme absolu, la route devant la maison est un peu bruyante en journée mais cela ne nous a pas dérangé. Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de cette semaine passée dans la verdure et proche de dizaines de beautés naturelles à visiter dans un rayon de 50 km.

NEW FOR 2018 ....The Tour De France is here for a rest day /The Festival of Carcassonne for the whole of July/ Languedoc is one of the most varied areas of France, mountains, gorges, forests and the Mediterranean Sea, which is one hour away help make this an all year round tourist attraction.

Carcassonne is surrounded by beautiful fields of vines and sunflowers. The gite of Le Moulin is ideally situated and makes a superb holiday base to explore the many historical sites. It is in the land of the Cathars and Knights Templars. Apart from the medieval Castle of Carcassonne (as featured in 'Robin Hood Prince of Thieves') you can try to unraval the mysteries of Rennes-le-Chateau, visit ancient sites, chateaus, and Cathar castles. Explore ancient caves with subterranean rivers. Swim in the nearby lake and thermal spas of Alet-les-Bain and Rennes-les-Bain.

Apart from sampling the original French Champagne (Blanquette) which is made locally in Limoux you can visit the fine wine areas of Corbieres, Fitou and Minervois.

Other Activities: Go karting.

We now can take advantage of the 1€ train which goes from Carcassonne to Quillion every hour this is the bargain of the year !! TOUR DE FRANCE IS RIGHT HERE 2018 BOOK EARLY !!
