About the property

Moulin de Lantouy

Le Moulin de Lantouy is an old watermill with converted mill buildings set in woodlands and meadows of approx. 10 acres in a very peaceful valley. The Lantouy river, whose source lies about 1 km away in woodlands, flows through the grounds and is surrounded by unspoilt wilderness. The water is very clear and suitable for bathing. There is direct access to the Lot river from one of the meadows.

The gites provide modern comfortable living in traditional centuries-old buildings which comprise the main watermill, miller’s cottage, a barn and a small watermill on it’s own island.

Situated 50 kms east of Cahors along the D662, near to Cajarc, in the vallee du Lot. The gites can accommodate between 2 and 10 people. Group bookings are possible.

Großartige Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren schon oft in der Moulin de Lantouy und kennen mittlerweile jede Unterkunft. Dieses Mal wohnten wir mit Freunden in 'Le Heron'. Die Wohnung ist liebevoll eingerichtet. Die große Küche lädt zum gemeinsamen Kochen ein. Aufgrund des guten Wetters konnten wir fast jede Mahlzeit direkt vor der Tür an einem großen Tisch im Grünen zu uns nehmen, hier besteht auch die Möglichkeit zu Grillen. In dieser Jahreszeit nutzt man den gemütlichen Kaminofen im Wohnzimmer eher selten, wir waren auch schon im Winter hier, da brannte er den ganzen Tag. Das Anwesen ist sehr weitläufig und hat bei aller Pflege einen sehr ursprünglichen Charme. Die traumhafte Ruhe auf dem gesamten Grundstück lässt uns jedes Mal sehr schnell den Alltag vergessen.

Martin und Simon sind großartige Gastgeber, haben immer ein offenes Ohr für die Bedürfnisse und Wünsche ihrer Gäste. Die beiden haben auch immer Ideen und Tipps was es in der Region zu erkunden gibt.

Der Ort Cajarc hat uns von Anfang an verzaubert.

Sehr zu empfehlen ist der Schlachter an der Hauptstraße (neben dem Blumenladen) Hier haben wir schon für viele leckere Grillabende eingekauft. Ganz köstlich ist auch die Paté de Canard!

Martin and Simon, we will be back!!!

Big K. and little o.
