Holiday Let (self-catering accommodation, sleeps 4 - 6)
Le Moulin de Leymonie is a renovated, 17th century mill offering accommodation in an attached gîte ideal for up to three couples, or a family with older children. There are two comfortable, en-suite double bedrooms, and a fold-out sofa bed in the shared living area for additional guests.
This gite is self-catering. Facilities include a fully-equipped kitchen with oven, stove top, dishwasher, microwave and fridge. Access to the laundry is provided. Tea, coffee and milk as well as a high-quality hamper containing everything guests need to make their own first breakfast is supplied. Guests can easily shop in nearby Mussidan (10 minutes’ drive) and cook their evening meal in the kitchen or use the barbecue.
There is a flat screen TV with English channels and free wi-fi in the lounge area. Guests can also borrow books and board games, or use the four cycles to explore the region. The private, sunny courtyard is ideal for relaxing on sun loungers or barbecuing and dining al fresco. The cottage garden surrounding the old mill is full of birds, roses and wildflowers in season while the pretty stream, adjoining woodland and paddocks invite rambling exploration.
Host Sylph Baier is a professional potter with three decades’ experience. Guests can view her ceramic works on display in the on-site shop and, once a week, have the opportunity to see a demonstration of her craft.
This charming gîte is well-positioned for self-drive visitors keen to explore the region’s pre-historic caves, wineries, rivers and picturesque towns. Périgueux is 36km away and historic Bergerac is only 29km away. The nearest airport is Bergerac-Roumaniére which is 34km from the property.
Please note that the staircases in the mill leading to the first floor bedrooms are steep and unsuitable for people with walking difficulties and small children and toddlers. We also have uneven flagstones on the entrance of the property which date from the 17th century and access to all parts of the property is at visitors own risk.
