Description

If you like history, outdoor life and easy access to local amenities, you'll love Le Moulin.

Built in the late 18th century to serve the adjacent chateau, this restored former watermill retains many original features including the old millroom and a 100m watercourse.

The 11m heated pool is private and secluded and attracts sun from dawn to dusk. It is surrounded by 100sqm of poolside terracing and decking. The heating system is designed to keep the water temperature at a constant 28°C so you will be guaranteed a full week's swimming.

Le Moulin guests have exclusive access to the pool, poolside terraces and sports facilities.

A beautiful large fir-tree gives plenty of natural shade around the pool.

Le Moulin is set within two acres of gardens and grounds - plenty of space for exploring, football, trampolining, barbecuing and relaxing.

Kids love to play in the the large, secure open spaces which include lawns front and back, a wooded

Le Moulin is set within two acres of gardens and grounds - plenty of space for exploring, football, trampolining, barbecuing and relaxing.

Kids love to play in the the large, secure open spaces which include lawns front and back, a wooded area, a bamboo grove and a riverbed which usually runs dry in summer.

But Le Moulin guests don't need to jump into a car every time they want a baguette.

What is unique about Le Moulin is that despite its extensive grounds, it is in fact located in the middle of a bustling village.

A well-stocked supermarket, boulangerie, butchers, pharmacy, hairdressers, newsagent and medical centre are all just a short stroll away.

Le Moulin is divided into three distinct, self-contained adjacent gites - Le Laurier, L'Olivier and Le Figuier. Each gite has its own lounge space, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms.

Each group renting Le Moulin (up to 12 people) have sole use of the pool, poolside terraces and sports facilities.

There is plenty of room for all guests to dine and relax together.

Transport at Le Moulin is easy. We have safe, secure, on-site parking for at least seven vehicles including campervans and motor homes.

Le Moulin is an easy 10 minute drive away from Carcassonne airport and Carcassonne railway station.

There is also a direct bus into Carcassonne which leaves about 10 times a day, costs 1 euro and takes about 20 minutes.

Or you can borrow our bikes for free. There is great on and off-road cycling in the Black Mountains around Villegailhenc including 150km of marked trails managed by our local mountain bike club Attac.

We have helmets, maps, puncture repair kits and can give advice and tips.

There are also great walks into the local vineyards and woods around Villegailhenc. Again, we have maps and info on hand.

We live in separate accommodation upstairs at Le Moulin so we are on hand pretty much all the time. A bientot!

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Villegailhenc is located about 7km north of the medieval city of Carcassonne and just south of the beautiful Black Mountains.

Carcassonne has two UNESCO world heritage sites - the famous medieval cité and the Canal du Midi, which links the Mediterranean sea to the Atlantic and was a major architectural achievement when it was built in the 17th century.

The Black Mountains are wonderful for hiking, road cycling and mountain biking. We have bikes, equipment and information for guests.

Lake swimming is also a major attraction in our area and several local lakes are well set up for tourists including supervised beach areas, parking, restaurants and showers.

Carcassonne

Le Moulin is located in the centre of the historic village of Villegailhenc, part of the Carbardes wine-growing region of Languedoc-Roussillon.

Villegailhenc is a bustling village with many useful amenities including a well-stocked supermarket open seven days a week, a bakery and medical centre - all located about 5 minutes walk from Le Moulin.

There is a local bus into Carcassonne which operates several times a day.

There are several events held in the village every summer including a weekend long village party in August, a communal picnic on 14 July, a wine festival and a flea market.

A 1000 year old church is located just a short walk away from Le Moulin.

There are also several interesting local walks which can be made from Le Moulin.

Many of these pass through vineyards of the local domaines which can also be stop-off points for wine tasting. We can supply information on when and where to go.
