Watermill / 2 bedrooms / sleeps 4
This is a small watermill that was in use until the beginning of the nineteen hundreds. The foundations date back 400 years. The mill was beautifully rebuilt and a modern stone extension added. It is set in a very pretty valley with sweeping fields and woods and lovely views at every turn. There is a beautiful view from every window of the house. The surrounding gardens are very pretty and well shaded by tall trees.
The colourful kitchen-diner, attractively fitted in pine, leads straight onto the terrace through sliding patio doors where one can eat or lounge in the sun or under the stars. A bedroom gives onto the terrace too and can be a sitting room If desired or I can set up a small art studio. There is a pretty twin bedded second bedroom and a double bed on the mezzanine.
The mill is a two floor high space with magnificent beams under the roof and a wonderful staircase and mezzanine below which is a sitting area with two sofas, the television and a log burner. There is a good grand piano, books, CDs, and DVDs.You can dine outside on the lawns wherever you like under the trees as there are easily moved table and chairs.

The Midi-Pyrénées region
This is a little known but very beautiful and interesting region. It centres on the most attractive and welcoming medieval fortified hilltop village of Lauzerte. Lauzerte lies on the pilgrimage route from Arles to St.Jacques-de-Compostelle and the pilgrims can be seen daily wearily climbing the last hill to their hostel for the night, even occasionally with a donkey. Lauzerte is 20 miles east from Cahors in the Lot and 11. miles north of Moissac at the confluence of the rivers Tarn and Garonne - both fascinating towns.
With its historic interest, many stone built farms, villages and romanesque churches, rolling countryside, forested hillsides, extensive views from high places, even to the Pyrenees on a clear day, this is a, truly wonderful area for walking or car tours and visits. In addition there are so many varied activities on offer one is spoilt for choice! - from leisure lakes with beaches, canoeing and horse riding to parachuting. Even golf is not so far away. There is a very full program of festivities and art exhibitions.
All this in the warmth of beautiful sunshine.......
There are very many wonderful very historic towns a gorgeous drive away with tourist information readily available. Cahors for its old town, the River Lot and the Valentrae bridge and river trip to St.Cirq la Popee; Moissac's romanesque Abbey and Cloisters, lovely squares, shops and riverside and canal side walks and cycling; Valence d'Agen for it's gigantic market on Tuesdays and its old riverside commercial buildings, lavoir and communal spaces and going onto La Magistere and Agen with cycle riding all the way along the Canal du Midi; Auvillar with its buildings in small red bricks and especially its circular market. From Fumel, going along the D811 in the direction of Cahors, there are many lovely little towns on or near the river Lot. One can go much further afield on day trips to, Rocamadour, Albi, Castres, Toulouse, Auch, Caussade, Montauban and Fleurance, Lectoure and Condom in the Gers.
A visit to Bonaquil Castle is an absolute must for everyone who loves romantic history. It is just near Fumel and, about 20 miles away.
