GOLDEN MILL


MOULIN D'AYRES

 

Stunning 14th Century Water Mill set in a peaceful wooded valley, all amenities (including Michelin star restaurants) within a 30 minute drive. the beautifully restored holiday complex consists of a four bedroom gite with private 10m x 5m salt pool and a separate luxury one bedroom apartment.

 

This peaceful retreat, set in five hectares of garden, meadow and woods, is a nature lovers' paradise, a magical open valley with the Viaur river meandering by.

 

Aveyron is generally regarded as the best kept secret of France; the Mill and its valley is a very magical spot, a wonderful and calming place in which to relax and enjoy the country side or explore the surrounding Bastide towns, the cathedrals and the local fare. Treat yourself to a therapy session, reflexology or Reiki, to help you relax even more. With luck you might be here for one of our summer concerts in the new salon above The Mill, where local artists display their talents. Maybe have a night of from cooking and have someone into cook for you, with several options - just ask for details.

GOLDEN MILL



 

Aveyron is generally regarded as the best kept secret of France.

 

On the edge of the Cathar and Templar regions, the Aveyron area is steeped in history. Even though it has an area almost half that of Wales, almost all of the department can be reached from the mill within an hour. Bastide towns, cathedral cities, castles, art galleries, museums aplenty. The childhood home of Touluse Lautrec can be visited 15 minutes away, and just 45 minutes away in the neighbouring department of Tar the famous cathedral and the Toulouse Lautrec museum make the Unesco heritage town of Albi a must. A little further is the Gaillac wine region. All sporting facilities, water based and land based, are locally available, even the occasional theme park. For the lovers of modern engineering, the stunning Millau bridge is an hour away and the delightful railway bridge over the Viaur twenty minutes. In high season each village has its fete and there are numerous night markets and open air theatre and music spectacles.

 

The Mill and its valley is a very magical spot, a wonderful and calming place in which to relax or explore the surrounding countryside, test the locale fare, maybe treat yourself to a therapy session, reflexology or Reiki, to help you relax even more. With luck you might be here for one of our summer concerts in the new salon above The Mill, where local artists display their talents.

AVEYRON

 

Many places lay claim to be the best kept secret of France.  But there is only one department which can justly claim that accolade - Aveyron is a mosaic of regions, each with its different countryside, identity, building style and speech.  Cross any of the Hundreds Of Valleys and in a few miles, you could be in another world.  The Aveyron lies about a six-hour drive south of Paris, with Rodez an hour and a half east of Toulouse.

 

It has taken centuries to build the cathedral at Rodez, the abbeys of Conques and Sylvanes, the ordered bastides like Villefranche de Rouerge and Sauveterre, the Templar and Hospitaler towns like Larzac, impregnable castles and villages perched on hilltops. Millau where the record breaking viaduct over the Tarn speeds traffic towards the Mediterranean.  It is well worth taking time here in the Aveyron.

 

Time for the seasons also, which spice the countryside with tender spring green, bathe the red stones in summer, before the shimmering autumn colours give way to the vast expanses of the Aubrac winter snow.

 

 

With this alchemy of eras and countryside, ambition for progress in Aveyron respects an equilibrium between modernity and the riches of its heritage.  With a "Live true" philosophy, Aveyron does not compromise on its history, nor in its ability to make an asset of development.  Welcome to this land, at once wild and yet soft, horizontal, yet surprising in its sudden verticality.
