The Moulin de la Conque is a vegetarian household, simple, rustic and creative; deep in the green valley in the wild rocky Corbieres . It was once a watermill and is still surrounded by the sound of water. Lovely views of the hills and mill stream out the bedroom window. Summer river swimming a field away. A haven for nature, bird, fresh air lovers for those who appreciate Natural beauty. Vegetarian,gluten/lactose free welcome. Menus available from vegetable garden and local produce.
Hello and welcome to the Moulin de la Conque, an artists house.
Two light and simple rooms are available in this authentically restored water mill ( double bed). It is nestled in spectacular natural landscape in the Gorges d'Orbieu, in the Hautes Corbieres near a tiny village perched on the hill,Montjoi.
The room overlooks the mill stream and surrounding mountains.
You can take advantage of the beautiful hikes in an unspoilt landscape, go eagle watching or simply walk through the field in summer to swim in clear river water.
Or just be inspired, being happy contemplating and breathing in the fresh mountain air!
Or drive through spectacular landscapes to visit Cathar castles.
Or join in with the activities happening here.
You can enjoy full use of outside terraced and grass areas around the Moulin.
Breakfast is organic bread and home-made jam. Special dietary needs can be catered for. Picnics available in advance. As are simple and tasty lunch or evening meals using local and garden produce. Vegetarien meals are the moulins speciality!
One of the charms at being at the moulin is that you are immersed in Nature.

The Moulin de la Conque in its inspiring setting is the home to my passions; a simple life; making art, meditation, music, organic gardening, eco-living, sustainability...
If like me you like to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life ... here is a perfect place to land !!
Nestled in the valley, you can see and hear the river from your window. Natures lullaby! In the summer there a beautiful spots to swim and relax your body mind and spirit. Also music festivals and fetes de village to get into the local friendly atmosphere.
Theres lots to visit ...the Cathar castles, villages like Rennes le Chateau
or Bugarach full of history and mystery. A wonderful place to hike. Also a haven for avid bird watchers...there are rare Egyptian Vultures and Eagles here.
I love to travel especially to the Himalayas... but I am always happy to come back here!!
