Built in the 17th century, Le Mouli d'en Boix will cast its spell on you from the moment you arrive. This beautiful 25 acre property is situated high in the Vallespir Valley where it nestles into the hills, with only the noise of the river and waterfall breaking the silence. Either you can spend away your days on the terrace or take wonderful mountain walks with spectacular views. Wildlife abounds; butterflies and birds by day and wild boar at night. If you're lucky Roe deer may appear in the morning. St. Laurent de Cerdans is a 15 minute drive away and offers the usual French bars and festivals, especially in July and August. Restaurants in Coustouges and Tapis (Spain) are a short drive away. The Mas offers 2 suites, each consisting of 2 double bedrooms with one bathroom. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are not included. If you would like any meals to be provided please request rates. Mountain bikes and swimming are available on the property and there is a top class golf course 9 miles away.

Why Dave and Chris Warburton chose Saint-Laurent-de-Cerdans

If you have children Le Mouli is a giant playground with space to make dens in the woods, explore the stream and swim in the pool. Our dogs are always ready for a game and love having children to throw their ball or stick for them. If you are a bird watcher, Le Mouli abounds with our feathered friends. One of our guests recorded 33 different species of birds, either seen or heard, during her Spring time holiday here.

Perfect relaxing week
What an amazing place, we had a week here with our two kids and had a brilliant time it was just a shame it wasn't two weeks. Plenty to do in the lovely sunny weather, exploring with Shumba and Elba, Dave and Chris's beautiful dogs. The kids especially loved the pool. Facilties are great in the property and Dave and Chris the perfect hosts we would definitely be be up for a return trip.
Thanks Dan and Natalie for the great review. We're always happy when our guests enjoy this wonderful piece of paradise. We're looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
A great choice
We (a retired couple) stayed at Le Mouli for the first three weeks in June.
The welcome from the owners, Chris and Dave, was exceptionally warm and throughout our holiday there advice and information added to our enjoyment.
The property is charming and spacious with extensive grounds to explore. The location is superb for the enjoyment of mountain scenery, peace and quiet, walking along quiet paths and through beautiful woodland, followed by a dip in the private pool.
Although the property is quite secluded, there are the usual village amenities a short drive away.
If we were to visit this region of France again, we would certainly consider re-booking.
Thank you Claire and Stuart for a wonderful review. We are always happy when our guests enjoy this beautiful little world we have found here. We do hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
Ruhe und Erholung in außergewöhnlicher Umgebung
Wir verbrachten 2 wunderbare Wochen in Le Mouli. Die Beschreibung dieses sauber und ordentlich geführten Hauses trifft in allen Punkten zu und die Besitzer kümmern sich sehr liebevoll um die Gäste. Sie geben all ihr Insiderwissen weiter, sodaß wir u.a.tolle Restaurants in der Umgebung und im nahegelegenen Spanien (z.B. El Quadro in Macanet; super Preis-leistungsverhältnis !) entdeckten.
Obwohl man in aller Abgeschiedenheit wohnt, ist man in 1 Std. in Girona, wo Ryanair landet und wir unsere Tochter abholten.
Wer mal die Seele baumeln lassen will ist hier genau richtig.
Thank you Tobias and Martina, for a great review. Dave and I hope that we'll see you here again soon.
Sehr schönes Haus. Herrlich ruhig und abgelegen.
Wir haben zum zweiten Mal einen herrlichen Urlaub erlebt. Das Haus ist sehr geräumig und gepflegt. Drum herum gibt es nur Natur, den beheizten Pool und natürlich die Pferde, Hunde und Wildschweine. Unsere Kinder wollen nie mehr wo anders Urlaub machen. Die Eigentümer Chris und Dave sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben hier neue Freunde gefunden.
Thank you for this wonderful review. We are looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
The Vallespir Valley is one of the most beautiful unspoilt areas in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Mount Canigou, snow covered from November to June, dominates your drive up the valley following the River Tech as it meanders through the delightful villages of Ceret, Amelie les Bains and Arles sur Tech. The Valley narrows and climbs and the scenery becomes more dramatic as you near St. Laurent de Cerdans.
Amelie les Bains is famous for it's hot healing springs; Ceret for being home to Picasso and of course, it's wonderful Saturday market. Arles sur Tech is dominated by a Medieval Abbey and Pratts de Mollo by Fort Lagarde, both of which hold entertaining festivals throughout the summer. If you should want to tear yourself away from the tranquillity of Le Mouli, it's possible to cross the boarder and sample the Spanish restaurants all within easy driving reach. During the summer months the local villages are alive with traditional festivals, always welcoming visitors.
The rates shown are for weekly bookings only per double bedroom occupied. For example if you are a family of four you will require two bedrooms and the rate in June will be euros 340 x 2 (bedrooms) = euros 680 per week. Discount rates may apply for children under 10. Our guest house is ideal for a group of friends or large families. We can quote in sterling if preferred.
