The space
A beautiful watermill in an amazing location! Moulin de Latreille, nestled in the silent & timeless valley of the Ouysse river, surrounded by cliffs and wild flower meadows.

Moulin de Latreille is a beautiful 13th century water-mill, situated on the banks of the River Ouysse, known to the locals as the 'emerald river' for its' sparkling clarity and colour. Initially built by Cistercian monks, we have restored the interior of the mill with a spirit of simplicity and comfort with a contemporary twist to create a meditative space sensitive to its historic past. Surrounded by totally unspoilt countryside, Latreille offers you the opportunity to relax and unwind in this rural idyll.

Sleeping 14 comfortably , offering 7 bedrooms (3 en-suite) and 5 bathrooms they are light and spacious with river views.

Nestled in the 'Parc Naturel Regional des Causses du Quercy', a rural area of natural outstanding beauty and one of the richest historical regions of France.

Latreille is surrounded by the beautiful medieval market towns of Sarlat, Gourdon and Martel. Rocamadour, just 20 minutes away, is one of the must-see gems of this area and deservedly the second most visited religious sites in France.

The Grottes (Caves) of Lacave, Peche Merle and Cougnac are not far away, the latter having magnificent cave paintings.

The next Mill up river from Latreille is Moulin de Cougnaguet, a fortified mill-house and museum . It has an ancient but operational water-powered flour-mill, and it still makes its own flour. A tour of the mill is highly recommended.

This region of France has a remarkable number of pre-historic sites, medieval towns, chateaux and gardens, all set in breathtaking scenery.

The nearest restaurant is 2kms in Cales.

Latreille is nestled in it's own magical setting, a vast wild flower meadow on one side, and mill pond on the other. There are walks along the river on both sides, hammocks are set up in the garden by the river for total relaxation to watch the kingfishers go by. There is also a rowing boat & canoe available for the more adventurous along with 'wild swimming' in the crystal clear waters of the river Ouysse.

If you are interested in the birds and butterflies of the region, there is the most amazing selection around the months of May/June, when the wild flower meadows are at their best.

We have a local qualified mobile Holistic Therapist who is available for various treatments within the tranquility of your own idyllic surroundings.

The south-west is renowned as a gastronomic area of France and there are two Michelin starred restaurants in the local area, one of which is situated further up stream on the river Ouysse, a 45 minute walk away or transport to these can be arranged.
