“An ideal oasis for those who wish to be close to nature”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

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.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room on the second floor, with windows facing south and west

This stunning place is hidden away in a private valley and a real find. Pictures just don’t do it justice! We were made very welcome by Andy and Georgina, and had a very pleasant and peaceful night’s stay. The rooms were well equipped and beautifully decorated. We would definitely stay there again!

Anyone looking for a mental detox in idyllic surroundings should look no further. Beautiful environment, well appointed gite & B & B rooms, and excellent, attentive and helpful owners.
At times, it felt almost the holiday cliche of sitting by the lake, watching the sun going down drinking a lovely red wine, but that's the reality.

You have the choice of comfortabvly spending time on the site, but there's so many places to visit locally that you have to make the most of it.

One friendly bit of advice -- the property is generally described as 'Meymac' but it's a couple of miles outside, along a fairly twisty country road. Those looking for a stroll into the local village to stock up on cheese, bread and wine, might need to think again. Not the owners' fault of course, in my opinion it is all the better for it's country location.

Staying at the Moulin Des Farges was hands down the best part of our trip to Europe :-) My husband and I took our first trip to Europe this May and stayed in England, France and Italy. I have to say that staying here was so relaxing! Andy and Georgina took such good care of us and even picked us up and dropped us off at the train station.
The chateau is beautiful with amazing grounds to go walking. My husband and I took advantage of the row boat out on the lake and also did a lot of walking around the area. We stayed in the Rose room for two nights (the bathtub is wonderful!) and had a very comfortable bed. I highly recommend having Andy cook you dinner for at least one night. He really is an excellent chef and also Georgina makes some yummy pastries and desserts!
We enjoyed tea time in the afternoon with their very happy and well behaved dog, Phoebe :-) The weather was gorgeous when we were there though it was still a little too chilly to take advantage of their pool. We had fun exploring Meymac and took a walk leading us to a very large a pretty lake. Honestly, this place is just romantic and my husband and I will definitely be here next time we're in France! Again, Andy and Georgina took such good care of us, I couldn't have asked for better hosts on our trip.
If you're looking for a romantic and relaxing getaway in France, this is where you need to be!

Room Tip: We stayed in the La rose room because it looked so cute on their website! The bed was comfy and the...

This is a really charming old mill house beautifully restored and decorated with plenty of character. The valley and lake belonging to the house are surrounded by thickly wooded countryside with good walking straight from the door- especially entertaining when we borrowed Phoebe, the dog of the house! Andy and Georgina are exceptionally good hosts and always willing to help with arrangements, such as horse riding around the local lake. We had dinner on 3 nights and the food was always delicious. There was a lovely atmosphere on the terrace and heating for the table when it got chilly. A very relaxing and enjoyable week was had by the whole family.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the decor in the Rose room particularly. Views are good from all rooms.

Having just completed my third stay at the Moulin I feel compelled to post another review saying how lovely it is. Delicious breakfasts and fantastic evening meals. A great swimming pool which was ideal to sunbathe by if a little cold to swim in (the water doesn't really heat up until July) and overall yet another very enjoyable holiday. Nothing is too much trouble and Andy & Georgina are brilliant hosts.

Whilst I throughly endorse the comments about the owners and about the B&B accommodation - I have a few reservations about the self catering.
Being a person who gets woken easily when asleep I had troubles at night. The Mill's upstairs floor was not solid and creaked loudly and intrusively with every move made upstairs - I cannot understand why no-one has mentioned this before as it did spoil the visit. Luckily our teenagers settled down within an hour of us, but that hour was extremely annoying.
We did look at the B&B accommodation and the floors there were solid wood and the bedrooms luxurious
The mill, set at the base of the property did get very cold as soon as the sun went behind the trees, which even in late August was quite early - so do bring warm clothes
Apart from that we loved it all.
