There’s a warm, easy-going atmosphere here and you breakfast well on homemade jams, eggs from the owners’ hens, fresh breads and pastries, ham and cheese if you want something heftier. Bedrooms are spacious, three have a covered balcony for a sundowner looking over the garden, two share a spiral staircase to a smart bathroom.
There is a salon for guests with a library, board games and TV, plenty of places to sit and read a book or plan your next adventure. Head straight off from Le Moulin on foot or on horseback – there are stables at the end of the drive; or take the kids canoeing on the Lot, or zip-wiring at the tree-top adventure park. Here you can swim in the pool and take walks along the paths in the park.
Dinner is a treat with plenty of vegan and vegetarian choices, alongside organic meat and fish, vegetables and fruits from the garden, risottos, pies, and Virginie’s gorgeous desserts – don’t miss her Moelleux au chocolat.
