GENERAL

Moulin de Borde enjoys a first class location, just 8 minutes by car to medieval Caylus with bars, restaurants and market, and only 17 minutes to the intriguing bastide town of Villefranche de Rouergue. This fully equipped home enjoys a superior measure of comfort with air conditioning in every room. The mill overlooks a quiet walking route amidst a walkers' paradise.

Grounds, garden and pool are totally private, nothing is shared. On arrival you will enjoy a 4 course meal with wine free of charge. You can also choose from delicious low cost menu options throughout your stay, all delivered to your door–or even barbeque your own rainbow trout, fresh from the mill's well stocked private lake.

The range of brightly coloured butterflies and dragonfly is breath-taking. Every day brings something new to see.

GROUNDS AND POOL

The long, wide stretch of land in which Moulin de Borde is situated is the sunniest, most desirable part of the 20 KM Bonnette valley,

The house has two covered terraces, one with dining table for six and BBQ. There is extensive decking around the pool where you will find eight lounger chairs. The terrace is gated for child safety.

The 10m x 4.5 x 1.30 infinity salt system pool is unique in the world. It lends swimming an incredibly open feel by giving the appearance of joining the river, whilst in reality the river flows under the pool and house.

The pool is serviced by a pump so powerful it has more the buoyancy of the ocean. Four children so far have swum unaided here for the first time. Attractively constructed in stone the pool has a smooth base with easy access via six large corner steps. . For your health and comfort PH and salt (chlorine) levels are monitored and adjusted automatically.
