Secluded Perigordian riverside watermill with wi-fi and private pool

Woodland walks start right on the doorstep past lakes, ten minutes to the village bakery.

Moulin de Gros Puy is a three double bedroomed stone built watermill property lost in rural France. There is no passing traffic, and a pedestrian bridge over the river to the front of the property leads to miles of walks through woodland and local lanes, past lakes and enchanting scenery. The property comfortably sleeps six people. An infant cot is available also, if required.

The nearest swimming lake is at St Saud, (5kms) where there is a sandy beach with a lifeguard, changing facilities, an adventure playground, and restaurant.

The Lake of Saint-Est├Ęphe (8kms) is one of the largest and most beautiful stretches of water in the department. Here you can find a sandy beach supervised by a lifeguard, and free loan of canoes, organised activities like archery, and adventure park, and there are three restaurants with ample parking.

At Moulin de Gros Puy there is a 4.5 m octagonal plunge pool for your exclusive use, which is available from mid June until September. The pool area is fenced according to local safety standards, and kept locked at all times. We provide sun loungers, and comfortable seating in the pool area with parasols. A stone built open sun lounge in the pool area provides a cool shaded sitting space for people who do not want to sit out in the sun. We also provide inflatables for the pool, and a dart board, and badminton rackets, cricket set, and boules for your use.

We provide beach towels for use in the pool area and at the local beaches, so that you do not have to pack towels.

For the energetic we have a selection of cycles that you may borrow free of charge to explore the lanes, or perhaps use to pop to the bakers for those morning croissants.


You will love the newly fitted kitchen with microwave, large professional gas hob, modern catalytic oven, dishwasher, washing machine in the utility annexe, and lovely American fridge that dispenses filtered cold water, ice cubes, crushed iced to chink in your glass as you enjoy a cool drink on the terrace.
