Figuier at Le Moulin de Samaran a country watermil

Condo/Apartment -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
L'Isle-en-Dodon, Haute-Garonne, Occitanie
In early 1814, en route to the Battle of Toulouse, Wellington's army marched along the Save Valley following what is now the D17. At that time they would have passed the recently built Moulin de Samaran. After a century and a bit of grinding wheat into flour. the Moulin was substantially re-built during the 1990s when it was converted into gites.

Comprising the entire top floor of the mill building, Figuier is spacious enough to swing any number of cats. The main reception room has a dual aspect with views over the mill leat both to the front and rear. An archway on the right leads into the fully fitted kitchen diner which has views over the River Save and the surrounding hills and countryside. Opposite, a short passage takes leads through to the two double and one twin bedded room together with the two shower rooms.

What a place and what hosts! Everything was a pleasant surprise. From the welcome treats - fresh homemade bread, butter, jams, wine, milk, oils and the best lemon drizzle cake ever, to the welcome from the hosts, Susan and Graham . Nothing was too much...More

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the banks of the River Save, 4.5 kms south of L'Isle-en-Dodon, the Moulin de Samaran is ideally situated to explore all the facets of Gascony. L'Isle-en-Dodon is a sleepy country town which has yet to succumb to all the rigours of modern life. It has a number of cafes, restaurants and bars and a bank, together with a convenience store and a supermarket on the edge of town which is open six and a half days a week. The Pyrenees are a forty minute drive away and for those of a more adventurous bent, a day trip to the Pic du Midi is a must. For those who enjoy rooting around at markets, it is possible to visit one every day of the week. The largest being at Samatan on a Monday morning which comprises both a livestock and foie gras market, together with traditional mark... more
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Toulouse (Blagnac), Carcassonne, Pau: 70.0 km
Railway: Toulouse (Matabiau): 75.0 km
For those who wish to fly, Toulouse (Blagnac) Airport is served by a number of airlines departing from many points in the UK and Europe. Several international car rental companies are represented at the airport and exiting the airport onto the Periferique is simple and well-signposted.

Should you prefer to bring your own car, then the drive from a north coast port will take between 8 - 11 hours (excluding stops).

Sailing to Bilbao or Santander means starting and finishing the holiday with a mini-cruise and reduces the driving to about four and a half hours.

Do not be concerned by the journey times as French roads are considerably less congested than would normally be found within the UK. Suggestions for hotels for overnight stops available on request.

For those of you who prefer a t...
