If you are looking for a gorgeous gite in a perfect location, Le Moulin is a real gem waiting to be discovered. Full of character and feeling so French, this chic gite is part of a group of three gites within a converted watermill. On the edge of private woodland and meadows with a huge swimming pool, it is only a 200m stroll to the centre of the quaint village of Busserolles with a boulangerie, bar and restaurant, Post Office and 11th Century Church.
The perfect combination of authentic French charm within walking distance of the local facilities and all the luxuries you would expect, you’ll be sure to make wonderful holiday memories here.
Le Moulin is packed with French charm with a spacious and bright open plan living/dining area enjoying views over the courtyard and waterfall. Tastefully renovated with exposed beams and original stonework giving you a real sense of history, whilst feeling comfortable and modern.
Le Moulin is one of three gites sleeping a total of 16 people. The other two gites are no. 150 and 152 on here.
The gite boasts a generous, open-plan living area with evidence of the original workings of the mill. The open kitchen, lounge and dining area creates a great space for socialising together and relaxing, perfect to prepare a traditional home-cooked French meal with local delicacies and wine from the market.
A furnished private terrace and BBQ is located on the sun terrace, perfect for al fresco dining, then watching the sun set with a glass of wine. There is plenty of sunbathing and relaxing space where you can get tucked in a good book. The three gites share a huge swimming pool which is sure to be popular with children and grown ups alike.
Perfect for a large family, two families or a group of friends traveling together, this gîte has three large bedrooms in total with a bathroom and shower and separate toilet. On the ground floor there is a also an extra shower room and toilet.
If your holiday takes you exploring, the Dordogne region hides tiny villages everywhere, tucked between the hills. You can be as active as you like with local cycle paths and walks threading across the picturesque countryside. Canoeing is very popular at nearby Montbron where you can hire equipment and chose your route. The river Tardoire weaves between the hidden chateaux, Prehistoric Grottos, menhirs and watermills, a truly beautiful backdrop to a wonderful day with family and friends.
Exploring the area further afield there is aerial tree climbing with zip wires and much more family fun. About 15 mintues away is the recreation lake at St Estephe, which has a swimming beach, lovely walks, boats and a play park for children. Why not grab a meal and a drink at the cafe too. Within an hour’s drive there are galleries, cave tours, karting, golf and the magical gardens of Marqueyssac (imagine 150,000 hand-pruned boxwoods), one of the Dordogne’s most famous and beautiful treasures. A ‘must do’ day trip is enchanting Brantome, adorning postcards for years and known as the Venice of the Dordogne, it’s officially one of the most beautiful villages in France.
Around the gite there is plenty for children to explore in the surrounding gardens, meadows and trees where fresh air and fun is guaranteed! Stay here and experience a proper family holiday, relax, explore and enjoy France at it’s best.
We have many wonderful reviews but here is a short selection:
"We stayed for a week in Moulin and our friends had cascade. Worked very well since each had private areas for dining and sitting whilst all sharing communal gardens and facilities. The stream running through the garden was great and my kids (even the 16 year old) spent hours fishing various living creatures out of it. The pool, ping pong and badminton area went down well and there were loads of bats, balls etc. Boulangerie at the end of the road was great for breakfast."
"We have just returned from La Maillerie and are already missing it. It is a very special place, so peaceful and such beautiful surroundings. The gite itself (we stayed in Le Moulin) was perfect, spacious and well equipped. But for us the highlight were the terrace, gardens, waterfall, river and surrounding woods. We saw so much wonderful wildlife, including kingfishers. I highly recommend a visit."
"La Maillerie is absolutely stunning. A converted mill dating from the 18th Century (I think, if memory serves!), which now serves as 3 holiday cottages."
"We stayed in La Rive and Le Moulin for one week in early July 2015. We had a wonderful time. The children loved the freedom to be able to explore the stream and its abundant wildlife. The gites were lovely and well appointed and Rob and Sarah were fabulous hosts. Already trying to decide when we can return!"
