Gite | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
La Mouline is a renovated olive mill in a delightful woodland setting, surrounded by vineyards between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.
The self-catering gite occupies the upper floors of this unique stone-built house which offers rustic charm and seclusion with beautiful views of the Languedoc countryside, vineyards and hills beyond.
The 150-year-old mill is situated in 2.5 acres of land including woods, a stream, natural pools and hidden waterfalls: a haven for bird life and the occasional wild boar!
This is a back to nature rural retreat run in an eco-friendly way, so green in both senses of the word!
It is situated in a peaceful country lane in the heart of the celebrated Faugeres wine region, just 35 minutes from the Mediterranean coast.
The downstairs floors, with separate access and garden, are occupied by the owners for any help or local information required.
The water supply is pumped from a well or rainwater harvesting tank in the garden which gives instant hot and cold water. Bottled drinking water is provided.
La Mouline also offers residential French-learning courses for any level by an experienced teacher. See prices page for information,

About this location
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The varied landscape of this area of the Languedoc is its primary attraction - from mountains to coast, from canal to vineyard, from modern marina to Roman amphitheatre.
You can be kayaking down the river Orb in the morning and surveying the majesty of the hill-top Cathat castles in the afternoon.
The most extreme example of this diversity is the newly-built, spectacular Millau viaduct, now the tallest bridge in the world, (situated near the famous Roquefort caves) and the beautiful Roman aqueduct the Pont du Gard, near Nimes.
The region therefore offers visitors a wide choice of activities from wine-tasting and markets, swimming and bird watching to boat trips and fossils - there's even bullfighting at Beziers' annual August Spanish Feria.
La Mouline is situated a scenic 10-minute stroll from Autignac, a pretty medieval hill-top village with a cafe, bakery, chemist, 'epicerie' and well-stocked small supermarket /tabac.
The village is surrounded by vineyards and rolling countryside with the mountains beyond, providing magnificent views and ideal for walking and cycling.
A large Intermarche supermarket with cash-machine, garage, bank and restaurants are 5-minutes away by car in Magalas.
The coast is reached via Beziers situated on the beautiful Canal du Midi. The attractive towns of Agde, Marseillan and Sete are an easy drive away as is the historic town of Pezenas with its lively Saturday market.
The nearby river Orb has spectacular scenery for pleasant walks, bathing or kayaking.
The cities of Montpellier and Carcassonne are an hour away and a further hour will take you to Spain, the Pyrenees, Nimes and the impressive Pont du Gard.

We really enjoyed our short stay here. With 2 children (aged 10 & 7) we needed somewhere with stuff to do - and La Mouline really had a handle on this for them - woods to explore, table tennis, badmin… More
