About the home
Le Moulin is a recently renovated gite built into the heart of an 18th century watermill and set amid two acres of gardens.
It is located in the historic quarter of Villegailhenc, a small village in Cabardes wine country, between medieval Carcassonne and the beautiful Black Mountains.
Yet despite being surrounded by so much green space, Le Moulin is just five minutes walk from the village centre and all local amenities.
The shaded and secluded pool area receives sun from dawn to dusk and includes a paddling pool area for the very young.
Older children might like to explore the trampoline, football, cricket and badminton facilities.
So whether it is wine tasting in the local domaines, hiking in the Black mountains or a trip to the seaside, you can do it all from Le Moulin.

The property has two bedrooms. The first is a double room with a beautiful stone floor and views over the extensive gardens.The second has flexible arrangement which can be a twin, a single or a double as required. Several of our younger (and some not-so-young) guests have made the most of our extensive grounds and the warm nights by camping out. There are some great camping spots in the back garden, secure and secluded and perfect for spotting shooting stars. We are big fans of camping ourselves and have all the gear, so feel free to borrow!

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
Languedoc-Roussillon is a region steeped in history - a rich wine-growing country where snow-capped mountains meet the Mediterranean Sea.
Known locally as Cathar country - its dramatic thousand-year history has all the mystery, castles and ruins you could wish for.
Yet its dry, climate, hot summers and frosty winters are also perfect for vineyards - making the region a magnet for wine-lovers, sun-lovers and nature-lovers alike.
The Carcassonne area
From white-water rafting on the river Aude to horse-riding, mountain-biking and wine-tasting tours virtually from the doorstep, there is always plenty to do in the local area.
Every August our village - Villegailhenc - hosts a weekend-long party which includes a fair, music, dancing eating and drinking. And September brings the local flea market, perfect for bargain hunters.
Also, no visit to Le Moulin would be complete without an excursion to the historic city of Carcassonne, five miles to the south.
In addition to its summer-long music and arts festival and spectacular Bastille Day firework display, Carcasonne features two UNESCO world heritage sites - the historic medieval Cite and the beautiful tree-lined Canal du Midi.
Plus you will find all the shops restaurants and bars you would expect from a bustling regional town.
