The Experience

1859 is carved above the door – historically this would have been space for the entire village to come and press the grape harvest. Now it’s a spacious, sunny and quirky gite for a family to spread out, including a cinema room complete with vintage cinema seats and plenty of books and games. The kitchen (equipped with popcorn maker, ice cream maker and loads of gadgets) is next to the living area, with chairs pulled up to a bar so people can chat with the cook. Kim leaves you a hamper with wine, cheeses and bread.

You have two private courtyards, one with plenty of shade, a peaceful pool surrounded by big cushion-covered sofas and a shared play field below to send children: they’ll find trampoline, ping pong table, football goals and swingball. Retire to solid, comfortable bedrooms: the master in the attic has a clawfoot bath and all have good views.

Le Moulin in Caylus, serves traditional French food.

Kim is witty and generous and her house resembles her. I would love to return, with my teenagers and take great walks each day, wild swimming in the river, meandering slowly through the medieval villages and sketching the stunning landscape.

The neighbourhood

You're on top of a rocky hill with views over countryside. Caylus is five-minutes downhill. There are lovely walking and biking tracks surrounding you, orchids in the spring, day trips to St Symphorien and wild swimming in the stream at the bottom of the valley. In autumn there is truffle hunting, and there are charming medieval villages with markets, restaurants, shops and not too many tourists.


Kim Ilsley

Kim is an artist, trial runner, Pilates teacher (ask if you’d like lessons) and keen upcycler. She and her partner Andy, an environmental consultant and archaeologist, have become very much a part of the community since buying their places here, with their children at the local school. Kim can arrange all sorts of extras, including airport pickups, picnic hampers, and art or cookery lessons.
