Villa overview

Two rivers encircle Le Vieux Moulin, with a little bridge to cross to reach the property.
This incredible setting is surrounded by forests and countryside, with flowing rivers giving a peaceful sound to the area.
Just south of the Dordogne river, life is at its best in the heart of the Couze valley.
The high standard of renovation of this 17th century property will instantly amaze you as you enter this paper mill and farm.
The contemporary and minimalist vibe with which this property has been restored has maintained many of the original features.
Downstairs, the wood burning fires give a warmth to this property, whilst in the summer the doors to the gardens can be opened up to make the most of the sun.
Six ensuite bedrooms can be found upstairs, one of which is situated in its own apartment for those looking for a little more privacy.
Outside, the many trees offer up shade, or you can enjoy a book in a hammock.
There is plenty to do in this property with its swimming pool, table tennis and boules.
A short five minute drive will take you to the local village where you can dine in one of the many restaurants, or explore the ruins of the abbey.
Beaumont du Perigord is just 5km away, where the atmospheric night market is not to be missed.

The setting of Le Vieux Moulin is just idyllic – it’s on an island in the Couze valley encircled by two rivers, accessed via a little bridge and surrounded by forests and countryside. Yet it is only a 5-minute drive to the nearest village, a charming place where you will find a lovely bistro by the ruins of a beautiful abbey, where summer concerts are sometimes held.
The bastide town of Beaumont-du-Périgord (6km) is just a little further with restaurants, pretty shops and galleries. In the summer there is a wonderfully atmospheric night market on a Monday evening where you can sit on long-wooden tables, choose your food from one of the street-market traders and buy local wine to enjoy, there is even some dancing too.
The Dordogne region offers endless activities for all ages from golf within half an hour to horse-riding, hiking and cycling across the magnificent countryside. Some of France’s most wonderful food markets are held across surrounding villages and towns where you can pick up amazing fresh produce such as local cheeses, breads, cakes, foie gras, canard as well as fruit and vegetables and there is also some superb wine-tasting across the region.
You are just a 20-minute drive to the glorious Dordogne river in Le Buisson-de-Cadouin where you can hire canoes, enjoy leisurely picnics or follow the river and explore some of the idyllic riverside villages such as Limeuil (20km), where the Vézère river meets the Dordogne and Trémolat (22km) with its Michelin starred restaurant. Further east are some of the Dordogne’s most famous attractions such as Beynac-et-Cazenac (40km) with its famous chateau, La Roque-Gageac (45km) and beautiful Domme (48km), officially one of France’s most beautiful villages.
Another one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, Monpazier, is only 16km away, a bastide town dating back to the 13th Century and thought to be one of France’s most beautifully preserved villages. Issigeac (20km) is also worthy of a visit, especially on a Sunday morning when the bustling market takes place.
Not forgetting Bergerac (32km) with its medieval architecture, narrow streets of boutiques and great restaurants as well as the unmissable Maisons des Vins and the famous town of Sarlat-la-Canéda (50km) with its maze of medieval lanes, lovely squares and amazing restaurants specialising in cuisine of the Perigord.
