Overview of Moulin Du Pit

What Oliver loves…

  • There is plenty of space and comfort both indoors and outdoors as well as charm and character, which create the feeling of a real home away from home rather than a holiday villa.
  • This beautiful home is blessed with lots of windows showing off the lush gardens outside.
  • You can stroll down to the local restaurant, which is just 500 metres away
  • Head down to the daily covered market in Cahors or the open market held on Wednesdays and Saturdays and stock up on local delicacies to cook up in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen.
  • Guests are spoilt with two beautiful regions of South West France on their doorstep.

What you should know…

  • The owners kindly request that the party leader be 21 years of age or over.

Le Moulin du Pit is an impressive restored 15th Century water mill near enough to the Dordogne for foie gras and great wines, whilst benefiting from the warmer and drier climate of the Lot.

Thick stone walls, wooden beams, pretty furnishings, geraniums and lush lawns...this is a real home full of charm and warmth. Spacious and comfortable with a superbly equipped kitchen befitting of the hostess who used to be a cookery teacher. When the cook is taking a day off, there is a local restaurant just 500 metres away.

The beautiful gardens provide an attractive setting outside when enjoying the pool or one of the terraces, and can be seen from indoors through the windows like pretty, framed pictures. A stream runs through the vast grounds and under the ancient tower before passing through the surrounding fields of wild flowers (and the occasional deer!) to join the Lot River.

The helpful owners, who keep the place looking immaculate, love to share plenty of information about the area - local markets, great local restaurants and wineries, canoeing and boating on the lake nearby, as well as little gems like the private chef or food delivery service from the covered market in Cahors, which is only 15km away and steeped in history, beauty and world-renowned wines.

With the Dordogne and the Lot at your doorstep, there is plenty to explore, but staying in and enjoying this lovely home may be even more appealing. A ping-pong table and plenty of games keep the younger ones occupied and the adults can relax knowing that the pool area is completely enclosed.

Le Moulin du Pit is a classic home away from home in beautiful South West France where guests return time and time again.

Interior & Grounds

The mill will comfortably sleep 12. However it can suit smaller groups by not using the top floor. It has a large log fire and central heating, which makes it ideal for the winter period and is perfect for Christmas or New Year breaks.

On the ground floor the entrance hall leads into large open plan dining and living room, separated from the kitchen by a stone fireplace. A large oak table is the focal point of the room (sits 20, plus high chair available), surrounded by authentic stone walls, beams and furnishings. French doors open out onto a south-facing terrace. The kitchen contains all the mod cons as well as Villeroy and Boch china, cutlery and glassware. A cloakroom is also on ground floor along with as well as a telephone (for incoming and local calls) and a CD and tape player.

A beautiful open plan staircase with rope handrails leads to the first floor sitting room. The sitting area has comfy sofa and armchairs (plus TV with French and European satellite channels, DVD, video player and VHS cassette collection). There is also a library (with French doors leading out to peaceful covered balcony overlooking the old mill patio), 2 double bedrooms each with a private bathroom. One of the bedrooms is set within the tower, with the most attractive furnishings and its own balcony over the garden and stream. The second bedroom has beautiful views of the rear mill stone patio and the meadow.

The first floor opens up to another staircase with access to large landing and the rest of the accommodation. On the second floor there are 3 further bedrooms, 1 double bedroom and 2 twin single bedrooms. All rooms are nicely furnished with great views of the gardens. There is a large bathroom with bath, WC, hand basin and washing machine and a separate shower room with WC and hand basin.

A final large double bedroom is situated in the tower with an extra adult bed and sofa. All double beds in the house are five feet wide and single beds are 3 feet wide. Two cots and highchairs are available as well as extra beds if necessary. Linen is provided. Two of the bedrooms have private bathrooms.

Outside the south facing terrace is equipped with large teak table and 8 chairs. The terrace at the front of the house contains an old side shot mill and one of the millstones. There is also a selection of garden furniture for use on the terraces and around the private child-safe heated swimming pool with lockable gates and underwater floodlighting (size: 6mx12m). There are also 10 sunbeds available and a large stone barbecue ideal for entertaining. The generous gardens mean there is plenty of space for games and perfect for children.

The property is accessed by a private drive from a nearby country road. There are bridges over the small River Vert on the far side of the large meadow leading to further fields and walks over our land.

In Catus there is also a terrific big lake which offers water sports and boating and free tennis courts (remember to bring your own equipment though). There is also an open-air market here every Tuesday and a Michelin star resturant only 9km away.

Cahors (15km) offers a larger choice of shops, supermarkets and restaurants. It is  a beautiful Roman town surrounded by the River Lot with good shopping, restaurants and twice weekly markets (Wednesday and Saturday). Explore the ancient streets and old buildings and take advantage of the numerous sightseeing opportunities (Pont Valentre, Resistance Museum and the cathedral). Cahors vineyards also come recommended for wine tasting. Visit Chateau Caix – Danish Royal family or La Grezette-Cartier family among others.

Other recommended places to explore are Sarlat (45-50 min), an ancient market town full of artists and cafes and Cordes en ciel (80km) is a hilltop village with chic boutiques and Arts & Crafts shops.

The Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.

  • A very nice property

    Created on 04/10/2016

    We had a wonderful time in St Denis Catus and enjoyed the lovely weather. Indeed a very nice property!!

  • We all fell in love with the Moulin!

    Created on 11/09/2016

    I at last have a quiet moment to sit and write to thank you both for letting us stay in your beautiful Moulin du Pit. We all fell in love with it - that magnificent tower, the stream running below, wisteria and roses cascading down the walls, nightingales and fields full of wild orchids.

  • A lovely setting

    Created on 05/09/2016

    Just a note to let you know we had a super holiday at Le Moulin. What a lovely setting.

  • A superb venue for a holiday

    Well, we're back in the UK again after having a very enjoyable time at your property. We were very impressed by such a lovely place and so well kept. Once again, thank you for providing a superb venue for a holiday.

  • Thank you for a wonderful week

    Posted by Anonymous on 05/07/2015

    I just wanted to drop you quick note on behalf of our little group to thank you for our week spent at Moulin Du Pit.

    Thank you for your help with the chandelier, it really was not necessary for the housekeeper to have called you. I had really only asked her out of curiosity. Aside from this everything worked perfectly and the various notes and guides around the place meant we all found our way around and very quickly felt perfectly at home. It is truly a wonderful house in the most wonderful setting. We would all have quite happily stayed at least another week!!

  • I fell in love with this place

    Posted by Nancy Russel on 06/01/2011

    We just got home and wanted to tell you how wonderful it was to stay at the Mill. It is probably one of the most beautiful settings I've ever seen. Just wonderful. We got rested, enjoyed all the beauty, ate at some great places around and about, shopped and fell in love with this place. Thank you again.

  • Family reunion

    Posted by Anonymous Guest on 27/11/2010

    we had such a lovely time in your house. It was perfect for our family reunion.

  • The space was perfect for the kids

    Posted by Anonymous Guest on 20/11/2010

    I've been meaning to write for a while to say we had a great time at the Moulin du Pit. The space was perfect for the kids and, when combined with a very welcoming atmosphere, led to a relaxing holiday for all. The generously appointed kitchen proved essential; it is amazing how much crockery 12 people get through!!
