Le Moulin de Pattus is a beautiful 17th century stone watermill in the heart of the Gard countryside in the sunny South of France.

It lies on the Vidourle river nearest to the pretty village of Salinelles and 3km from the picturesque medieval town of Sommieres which is half an hour from the cities of Nimes and Montpellier - each with their own airport.

The sandy beaches of the Mediterranean are about 35 mins away. The mill has a fenced old style bassin swimming pool (7m x 11m,) it's own river beach with 2 kayaks (each for 2 adults and a child), games room (pool table, table tennis, paints, Lego, Play Doh and other toys), mini football pitch, and an adventure playground for young children.

The area surrounding the mill is idyllic countryside - superb for peaceful walks, cycle riding (bikes provided), and fishing.

The mill has accommodation for up to 9 people so can be a lovely place to stay for a couple seeking peace and tranquillity in a stunning location yet near to cafes, restaurants and thriving busy markets... or two families wanting a fun but safe environment which caters to all their needs.

Long stays available off season ask for rates.

Within 5 minutes walk, you can find 3 restaurants, a boulangerie / general store a bar / cafe and the post office in Salinelles. 5 minutes drive into Sommieres will take you to 2 supermarkets and lots of bars and restaurants and more or less everything else that you will need.

Further details indoors

Our 3 bedroomed gite on the first floor sleeps 7 plus a double sofa bed and 2 cots.

There is a private enclosed child safe garden with shade to eat and a charcoal barbecue and views to the countryside and the children's play park.

There is a full equipped kitchen with dishwasher, full oven, microwave. We also have a washing machine by the bathroom.

There are 2 large double bedrooms that can both have a baby cot if needed. The third bedroom has 3 single beds and is up a small wooden staircase and is under the eaves of the house a great den style bedroom loved by children.

This gite has 2 WCs, one shower room and one bathroom.

Our WaterMill is extremely child friendly with stair gates, fenced pool, lots of toys and games, bikes for all ages, kayaks with life jackets - painting and drawing kit and a book full of interesting places to visit for families.

There is also a games room with snooker and ping pong tables and darts to play in the evening or during rainy / too hot days.

We have lots of baby equipment too, baby monitors, baths, lovely cot linens and hooded bath towels, flannels, bubble bath & bath ducks supplied! We also have changing mats, baby swings, sandpit, paddling pools and push along toys.

Further details outdoors

We have an 11 x 7m heated pool with infinity edge that is shared with 2 other gites. Around the pool you'll find a sandpit, paddling pools and toys for the pool. The pool is fenced for child safety but lots of space to run around and good quality sunbeds for mum and dad to sit on.

We also have a fenced play park for little ones with slide, swings and see saws - and somewhere to sit for mum and dad. Right next door we have a half sized football pitch with goals and balls.

We have 2 x 2 seater kayaks (life jackets supplied for little ones) so you can paddle up and down the river - or perhaps just paddle and use one of the nets to catch some tiddlers....

We have a great range of bikes to borrow (safe paths away from roads for rides...signposted right from our door) - including a tandem - and 2 baby seats. Also bikes for kids (some with stabilisers and some trikes)

Further details

We ask for a 30pc deposit. The remainder one month before arrival. We also ask for security deposit of £300 via paypal before arrival.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

We have a great position halfway between Roman Nimes and Montpellier and the beaches.


We can walk into Salinelles (3 restaurants a breadshop and a bar) in a few minutes on a country road or across the field - send dad on a bike to get the baguette in the morning!

Just a couple of minutes will bring you to Sommieres a gorgeous market town with a river running through it and a great choice of restaurants and bars and if you are feeling energetic a walk up the stairs to the medieval chateau.

This area is fabulous for visits with kids - kayaking, horse riding, aquarium, Pont du Gard
