    One week that we have in best memories

    We have our vacation in the "Sloping Roof Mill" in best memories. Where else could you stay in a mill, hundreds or years old? My wife and me came with pleasant anticipation and we have not been disappointed. The mill is perfectly restored and furnished (this must have been tricky with all the round walls!). Also the outside is very fine. We liked to have our breakfast and diner on the wind-protected terrace. The water in the pool was warm (thanks to Allans heating construction). And every now and again we have been visited by William, the cute little dog.

    Margaret and Allan are perfect hosts, very kind and helpful. And Allan proffered us a bottle of his delicious home-made red wine.

    Directly from the mills hill we could see a stunning beautiful landscape. The region around Montlaur is full of nature, vineyards, small and "less small" middle aged cities, castels and monastries. Narbonne and the famous Carcassone are the bigger cities that need to be visited. But there are also insiders'tips like Lagrasse or Villerouge (where the last of the sect of the Cathars, Guillaume Belibaste, has been burned at the stake). It has been an interesting experience to eat a middle age meal in the fortress Villerouge-Termenès.

    In the end I am pretty sure that this will not have been our last trip to the mills. One week was definitely not enough.

    A wonderful holiday
    Date of stay: August 2016
    We stayed for a week in the sloping roof mill this August & had a wonderful time. Margaret & Allan were very welcoming, our kids aged 8&11 loved feeding the animals, the pool was lovely, we had a magical night swim with the pool lit up after dark. the area is steeped in history - had a great day out at Carcassonne. We stayed in 3 villas in France & this one was everyone's favourite at the end of a 4 week trip. Thank you for a great time. Let us know if you ever want to sell up....!
    Review by: Gail

    Superb location, magnificent location and lovely pool
    Date of stay: July 2016
    We had a fantastic stay with Allan and Margaret, who were so welcoming. The flat roofed mill was charming and the gardens are delightful. Lots of space and quiet corners to read and chill. The pool was much bigger than your standard French garden pool, and for our family, the piece de resistance was the grass tennis court, with panoramic views of the vineyards across the valley! The mills are well located for an exploration of Cathar abbeys and castles, and very near to Carcassonne itself. I can recommend it.

    Picturesque doesn't do justice to this place
    Date of stay: June 2016
    The accommodation is beautifully presented with excellent modern facilities and comfy beds. The pool is a fantastic addition this is most welcome after a busy day out. Margaret and Allen were welcoming and knowledgable, friendly and accommodating couple who could not do enough to make our stay memorable. We loved the menagerie of animals, driving through little villages and the spectacular views when you stepped out the door. We would recommend this to anyone. We can't wait to go back.
