Having spent an enjoyable seven hours meandering across France on the more minor railway lines, we arrived on time at Meymac station, where we were met by Georgina and Andy (the owners of Moulin des Farges).
The guesthouse is a beautifully restored and converted building, standing in its own valley. We were delighted with our room, and with the enormous bathroom, and also with the gardens which include two small lakes connected by a rushing stream. It was wonderful to chill out by the swimming pool, watching the nearby black redstarts feeding their young.
The French-style breakfast al fresco was a pleasure, but the highlight for us was the sumptuous dinner (notably the duck breasts in a sauce subtly blending chilli with a hint of chocolate) which we enjoyed on the veranda while the sun gradually sank behind the hills 'up-valley'.
Standing in the grounds is a cottage - which I assume is self-catering. This place has its own tranquillity, and would be a perfect base for walkers, artists or those who simply wish to chill out.
