Barn Cottage (Sleeps 3. 2 Bedrooms)

The 2 bedroom Barn has been restored providing modern facilities whilst retaining the original bread oven in the kitchen, reflecting the building's long history.

Exposed stone walls and timber beams further add to the Barn's charm.

It also has its own private terrace and BBQ, with just a short walk over the lawn to the pool.

About the property


Moulin de Lartigue was one of 66 water mills along the River Dropt, a small but important tributary of the River Garonne in south west France. Accessed by a long private drive, our 16th Century accommodation enjoys a peaceful setting in 12 acres of parkland bordered by the river. Whilst secluded, bustling Villeréal is a convenient 5 minute drive. Colombage walls, fireplaces, vaulted oak ceilings, mezzanine and bread oven are a few features reflecting a fascinating history. Both self catering cottages are extensively equipped for modern comfortable living, each with their own private terrace and BBQ. The extensive grounds include a superb pool, fishing on site, sauna and outdoor games. You can make your holiday as relaxing or as active as you please. Set in the north of Lot-et-Garonne with its carefully tended orchards the hardest decision is where to go/what to see or do next - there is so much to enjoy!

Why Jennifer Bushell chose Bournel

We fell in love with Lartigue on our first visit one cold February day. It's a wonderful home where we enjoy peace and security. The wildlife is fascinating and every day life on the river brings something new, enjoyable and often challenging! We were so fortunate to have found such a stunning setting & still have to pinch ourselves sometimes, but Lartigue is a delightful surprise to anyone on their first visit. Guests declare that the photos do not do it justice!

Having explored many other parts of France we would not wish to move from our beautiful little corner where the locals are friendly and welcoming, the community and family is important and there's always lots going on.

We just don't know where the last 9 years have gone!

What makes this cottage unique

We have always endeavoured to make our holiday cottages a "home from home" and have furnished & equipped them with this in mind. From the oil paintings to the kitchens where you should find a good supply of wine glasses before having to do any washing up!

We have our free range eggs, our delightful ponies, mountain bikes and all sorts of other little extras we are always happy for our guests to enjoy the full benefit.

More than 50% of our bookings come from guests (now extremely good friends) returning again & again, so we do recommend early booking, especially for our Quercy cottage in High Season.

A very quiet place

  • 3 of 5

Very quiet place, large garden and swimming pool, nice owners.

A little bit disappointed by swimming pool which is not well maintained. Transats are old and broken.

Owner's Response: Living on site enables us to maintain our pool on a daily basis and the water is always crystal clear. It also enables us to respond quickly to requests from our guests at any time. Guests frequently move poolside furniture and we had not noticed on this occasion that two sunbeds were cracked and needed replacing.
