Watermill | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 14
Whilst retaining original features and rustic charm, it also offers every modern convenience.
It has a separate self-contained apartment, sleeping 2 or 3, which may be let in addition to the main property, but is never let separately.
It is an ideal holiday home for families and groups in search of tranquility and privacy whilst being in easy reach of the wealth of interest that the Dordogne has to offer.
Set in its own grounds of some 32 acres, the property is entirely surrounded by unspoilt meadow and woodland, as well as having its own vines. It is the perfect spot from which to enjoy rural France's extensive wildlife, including wild boar and deer.
The heart of the property is more refined - a wonderful, vine-covered terrace opens out onto a beautifully manicured lawn lined with mature borders, on the other side of which is the heated swimming pool and poolhouse offering ideal poolside facilities.

This beautifully converted watermill is an absolute gem for outdoor living. The stunning vine covered dining terrace opens from the kitchen with views over the gardens and pool.
There is a large BBQ area set slightly higher than the terrace. The 10m x 5m pool is heated and ideal for toe-dippers with roman steps at the entrance.
The pool has a stone surround and large lawned area where there are sunloungers, chairs and tables. It is completely sheltered and private – a fabulous suntrap.
The timbered poolhouse is set behind the pool in a stunning Perigourdine outbuilding with another loo and shower. The pool is alarmed for safety and complies with recent legislation. In the grounds there are stables for up to 4 horses, a children’s play area and extensive lawned areas for ball games.
The varied walks through the grounds complete this perfect French hideaway.
About this location
The Dordogne region
Le Grand Moulin straddles the River Gardonette, a tributary of the River Dordogne, of which the grounds occupy the majority of the valley.
It offers tranquility and privacy, and yet is only a few kilometers from the villages of Cuneges and Pomport, both of which offer shops. Its 32 acres offers a high degree of diversity - from carefully manicured lawns flanked by mature borders, to meadowland, its own small vineyard, paddock and woodland.
Surrounded entirely by beautiful countryside, it is a haven for wildlife - wild boar, deer, hares, birds of prey etc - and its terraces and verandas offer the perfect spot from which to view these delights.
Green rolling countryside, old stone farmhouses and barns, fields of sunflowers, vineyards, rivers, grand chateaux, castles in ruins, bastide towns of cobbled streets with fountains, little squares, cafes, the archetypal
French farmer complete with beret, derelict old pigeonnieres and pre-historical sites.
The list is endless - our photo galleries should give you a flavour, but you really need to come to experience it all for yourselves.
