Unique Medieval Mill. Small but perfectly equiped in the gorgeous setting of unspoilt Mediterranean nature it provides a holiday you will never forget.
Luxurious, heated swimming pool May till Oct.! Near air temperature! Shared by the two mills. Field for ball games. Football goals and basket ball, tennis net (you can borrow tennis rackets.) Barbecue available.
10 acre domain of glorious countryside, on a hill, private, yet at the edge of a small village in Aude, magnificent views. Beautiful sunsets. A charming video gifted by a guest is on YouTube at https://youtu.be/DqCAPIk6BxI
Dating to 13th century, one of the first windmills in the South of France.
Fantastic walking and in beautiful unspoilt nature.
We have dogs, cat, chickens, and parrots.
Village: The friendly, wine producing village provides walks, excursions and village open air dances and (occasionally) meals in the summer. Walk down to the small supermarket, there's a butcher, post office and pharmacy. At 8 minutes walk a Bistro with fantastic food at small prices, Vins de Dagne.
Fantastic sightseeing: the famous Medieval Walled City of Carcassonne is reached in 25 minutes. There are beautful abbeys nearby and of course the Cathar Castles, from the early Middle Ages. In fact, the mill itself dates from the Cathar period (1266) probably the first windmill in the South of France.

In 1988 Allan and I moved here permanently. He carried on teaching his students via video conferencing (Physics Prof) as well as doing research. I stopped my Clinical Psychology Psychotherapy practice and went in for spinning, weaving, goats, horses, chickens, gardening etc. This 'back to nature' period left us with the chickens (eggs!), a vineyard (wine) and a beautiful wooded area around the Mills, having planted almost 1000 trees.
