Set in medieval cathar countryside - old stone bergerie. Double bedroom on 1st floor with beautiful view over the terrace to the glorious noble hill called Nitable. Will be cold in the autumn winter spring. Shower/bathroom en suite.
Another bedroom on ground floor with 2 single beds - very little windows - great for a very hot summer. You can sleep in a tent with the wild boar outside if you would prefer.
The house is in a pretty valley with a river running at the bottom of the garden. Very beautiful nature all around. Pond swimming on the land, river swimming not far.
A gorgeous walk of 40 mins through the gorges de cauyne poynt to Chateau de Termes.
It's a 30 minute walk to the local shop, or 15 mins by bike or 10 mins by car. Restaurants in Lagrasse - a popular abbey, artisanal town about 25 mins by car.
Mediterranean sea is about ! hour 10 mins away. As are airports and train stations. Public transport is non existant.
Closeness to the glorious french nature that is all around.
this gorgeous expanse of peaceful nature, with the pretty river running through. A dip in the lake or local river swimming spots
noooooo - by foot or your bicycle or car.
Other Things to Note
Try and get here in the daylight.
Normal ones! Be careful to avoid anything inflammable - as very dry here in summer. No smoking in the rooms and please be careful of starting a forest fire.
I have 2 cats who are semi-wild.
Excellent séjour chez Sarah, qui est vraiment très chaleureuse et sympathique. Petites fleurs sur la table de nuit, plateau avec un super petit déjeuner posé devant notre porte le matin à déguster tranquillement sur la terrasse...aucun détail n'était laissé au hasard, et le lieu était vraiment magnifique !
We had the most amazing time during our stay at Moulintour. Everything was more than perfect - the beautiful room with an amazing view (the stars at night!!!), not to mention Sarah's cosy house and surrounding property. We had the opportunity to hike around the foothills and visit Termes, and Sarah was more than helpful with planning out our route. Having had many Airbnb experiences, Sarah was right up there when it comes to hosts - she was friendly, warm, accommodating, and made us feel right at home. It was a sincere pleasure meeting her and having had the chance to sit down and chat over a glass of wine. I would recommend Sarah and Moulintour to anyone, and hope to find my way there again one day!
Our stay with Sarah was a dream come true:
The house and its setting is all you can ask for: the peace and quiet, the wonderful view of the surrounding mountains and the oasis of a lovely garden with fresh raspberries.
The house is an collection of beautiful and curious things bearing witness to all the art workshops and creative minds that came together there.
It also gives credit to its owner, Sarah, who was an absolute delight to meet: full of energy, ideas,suggestions, a wonderful host! We hope to meet her again in London or her mountains!
Sarah's extraordinary home, with a lovely private guest suite, is perfect for the traveler who seeks the sounds and signs of nature over those in the city. We found the setting and ambience captivating! Because of her home's rural location, plan to bring food to prepare dinner in her kitchen or to drive 30-45 minutes to a restaurant (the drive is quite beautiful). Sarah is a delightful host who regaled us with her great humor and stories. We highly recommend her place for travelers to southern France.
Accueil adorable avec petit tour de découverte du ruisseau en arrivant. Le paysage est sublime et le lieu d'un calme immense. Parfait pour les amoureux de la nature et de l'espace. Sarah est très accueillante et discrète en même temps et reçoit avec gentillesse, fantaisie et simplicité. La maison est très chaleureuse.
Un séjour ressourçant et enthousiasmant.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Sarah. Sa maison est idéale pour les amoureux de la nature. La grande chambre avec la très belle vue, la salle de bain privative offrent tout le confort nécessaire. Nous recommandons ce bel endroit plein de caractère et sa charmante hôte aux personnes à la recherche de calme et de beaux espaces naturels. Merci à Sarah pour son accueil, c'est une belle personne dynamique et souriante !
Nous avons passé deux nuits chez Sarah. La maison se trouve au milieu de la nature, c'est magnifique. Cela fait beaucoup de bien, nous aurions aimé y rester plus! Sarah nous a indiqué des endroits super. Vivre dans la maison avec Sarah et Ailsa, jeune écossaise en vacance, a été vraiment très agréable. La rivière, les randonnées.. nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour.
