About Us at Le Moulin de Salazar

Paulette and Bernard

Ever thought about "living the dream". Well, we went one stage farther - in July 2000 my French husband Bernard and I started out on our adventure. Originally hoping to move to Spain from Bourne End in Bucks we finally ended up here in S.W. France, about half way between Bergerac and Toulouse in a little known area called "Quercy".

Did we buy a little house and settle down to French village life - no of course we didn't. We bought a huge run down watermill, sitting on five acres of grounds looking somewhat sad and forlorn. We must have been mad. Well, perhaps just a little. To be truthful we bought it because I liked the river beach and fishing pool. Hadn't seen inside any of the buildings before I announced I would be very happy here. My husband wasn't impressed. However, his lifelong dream was yes, you have guessed it, to live in a watermill. The only downside was Bernard didn't like gardening.

So we turned it into a lovely bed and breakfast and home from home holiday accommodation. I have now lived here long enough to know the region well, to be able to point you in the right direction for restaurants, shops, bars and where to go and what to see. I speak French so, if you don't want to you don't have to. I take care of all the day to day running so you can sit back relax and enjoy yourselves and if you need me, I am on hand. I am also very handy with a corkscrew.

I have never forgotten the first time I saw my Salazar, looking out over the river beach, hearing the trickle of the water and seeing my first kingfisher, and I can promise that you will never forget your first time here either, so click on the button below and you too can "Wake up to a Watermill", go on, you know you want to.
