Peaceful watermill bed and breakfast near Martel and Brive, Lot Valley France

ID: 524
This beautifully restored 13th century watermill B&B near Martel is situated in tranquil countryside at the northern end of the Lot departement. J55 of the A20 autoroute is just 15 mins away and Martel itself is under 5 minutes away

Stay a while and explore the medieval towns of Rocamadour, the Gouffre de Padirac, St Cere, Bretenoux, Castelnau, Carennac, Beaulieu, Collonges-la-Rouge and Turenne. Within easy range for day trips by car, you will also find Sarlat, Beynac, Domme, Laroque Gageac, Les Eyzies, Monpazier and Perigueux. If you are looking for a peaceful short break against a background sound of flowing water then this anglo-australian owned accommodation is for you!

A note of caution - whilst children over the age of 5 are very welcome, the large mill pond represents a very real hazard - so if you are travelling en-famille, little ones, who cannot swim well, must be supervised at all times.

The mill stream emerges from beneath the limestone not far from the house - you can bathe in its refreshing waters in summer or take the dinghy out for a paddle. Guests are very welcome to enjoy the large garden shaded by mature trees.

The owners have a small friendly dog. There is plenty of off road car parking at le Moulin.

We would like to express our appreciation of the Stopover B&Bs that we stayed in recently. They were all extremely welcoming, and the accommodation was faultless. In particular, the watermill B&B near Martel in the Lot offered a superb package, with breakfast supplied with all those little extras (crisp white cloth, fresh flowers, new French bread, assorted fruits ) and self-catering facilities in a self-contained annexe. Coral treated us with terrific personal attention. We cannot speak highly enough of her accommodation or hospitality, and have already encouraged friends and family to visit if they get an opportunity - the Smiths

We had a fantastic stay with Coral at her watermill B&B near Martel. She is an absolute diamond. Made us so welcome. Her property is divine. The food and her company was exceptional. Probably one of the best B&B's in France. - the Chapmans

Fantastic location and beautiful house. Very comfortable, extremely well fed and excellent hostess.- the Robertsons
