“Amazing Property, Brilliant Hosts”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We visited 'Le Moulin' for two consecutive Easter breaks and couldn't be more pleased to give the property and the hosts, Helen and Mick a positive review.

We found them on Owners Direct in 2014 and booked it due to their 'pet friendly' status, the fact there was a pool, and based on the photos of the properties. There was more than enough space in our gite for two adults and our two small dogs, and it was finished to a very high standard. We had all the equipment we required, and the owners were always more than happy to accommodate if there was anything extra we needed. They even helped us organise our required trip to the local vets before we were due to return to the UK.

Booking was easy, fast and friendly. Having had such a positive time last year, we booked again for April 2015 and were delighted to have an even better stay this time. The gite had been updated and it was just as warm a welcome as the previous year. Mick, Helen and the family are all fantastic hosts and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Le Moulin to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway in the beautiful south west of France.

“Great cottage in an excellent location”

We had a fantastic relaxing holiday at Le Moulin. The swimming pool, built by Mick , is superb and would be a necessity in the height of summer. The location is great - 10 minutes drive to Carcassonne and the village has everything you need. France is food joy but to have a Michelin starred restaurant just 15 minutes away was amazing at a very reasonable price ! Castres and Albi ( thanks Helen for that recommendation ) are well worth a visit.
We were made to feel very welcome, especially from Lilley !

“Relaxing and easy family holiday”

Le Moulin provided us with a lovely gite for a week's holiday. Self-catering suits us and facilities were good. We used the barbeque a lot to cook on and ate outside. Being situated about a 3 minute walk away from the local supermarket, bakery and butcher was perfect. We did not hire a car but got the bus to Carcassonne where we stayed for a night or two. A short and reasonably priced taxi took us to Villegailhenc. The absence of a car ensured that we had a really restful time. The gite is a lovely base with a good shower and most of our time was spent by the swimming pool. We did use the bikes on site and cycled to one or two nearby villages. The two gites are next door to each other but that worked well. The owners of Le Moulin were extremely helpful and accommodating.

“Friendly & Tranquil Gite”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have just returned from Le Moulin, where we stayed with our friends - Steven & Margaret. The friendly welcome from Helen & Mick, and excellent facilities at Le Moulin were second to none. We all throughly enjoyed our week in the tranquil and peaceful setting, which was very handy for plenty of sights around that part of Aude.
We will definitely be back when time allows.

“Fantastic character-filled place in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Beautiful surroundings in quaint village which is convenient for Carcassonne and its medieval Cite, plus attractive surroundings of the Montagne Noire, Mediterranean Coast and the Pyrenees.

Le Moulin itself is an ideal location for a quiet break with its excellent facilities, or indeed for a family break as there is plenty of room for the children to play in the gardens or by the the pool.

The family who own the gites are friendly and very helpful if you need anything. There is a washing machine and plenty of space to eat outdoors / barbeque or even play ball games. Good parking space which is private in the gardens.

There is a lovely beach at Leucate Plage just over an hours drive away, great for jumping the waves or lazing around. There is a restaurant / bar on the beach and free parking. The roads are good and the route is well signed posted.

An excellent holiday was had by ourselves and by our friends who took advantage of the opportunity to camp beneath the stars. We will return for sure.

“Fantastic pool area and a great base for exploring”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

My husband and I stayed here in July for 2 weeks and had a really relaxing time. Le Moulin is in a quiet village location but only a few minutes walk from the local shops (one being a little supermarket which had everything you could need) which was useful on more than one occasion. There is one hotel in the village with a very obliging owner/chef who was happy to come up with alternative dishes as we are vegetarians. The owners of Le Moulin are very helpful and friendly and the family pets were great too. We stayed when their two children were away so I don't know how much their presence would have changed our views (if at all). Our gite had a newly fitted kitchen and bathroom which were great. Only negative comment I would make would be the lack of storage space for clothes. There was a wardrobe but no drawers or shelves. Great location for exploring the area and about 40 minutes from beaches.
