There are 3 gites available for rent on the edge of the pretty village of Salinelles, 3 kms from the medieval town of Sommieres. These beautiful holiday gites in France come with a heated, infinity pool which overlooks the river. The gites are a short drive (35 minutes) to the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean coast and are within walking distance of a couple of restaurants, a bar and a boulangerie/general store.

There are 3 gites for rent at Le Moulin de Pattus in South France. Here we have featured the first floor gite which sleeps 7 people in 3 bedrooms (plus a double sofa bed and 2 cots) and comprises 130m2 of living accommodation.
You first enter this gite up stone steps (gated at the top and bottom) into the kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, full oven and microwave (a washing machine is concealed in the bathroom). Passing by the cosy window seat area you arrive into the first of the two double bedrooms. This large bedroom can also be converted into a twin room if required and comes with a cot. Next to this bedroom you will find a bathroom and separate WC. The equally spacious second double bedroom also has an adjacent shower room and a separate WC. The third bedroom is under the eaves of the roof, reached by a narrow wooden open staircase (gated top and bottom). This bedroom has 3 single beds and a put-you-up bed. This bedroom is more suited for older children.
The spacious living room has a double sofa bed, English terrestrial TV and DVD player. Double doors from the living room lead up into the kitchen and dining area.
Outside: There is a private enclosed terrace garden with shade to eat outside and barbecue. Le Moulin de Pattus has 2 hectares of land along the length of the Vidourle river with no neighbours. The uninterrupted countryside views over the Vidourle River, makes this a tranquil location. This is an excellent area for sign posted walks and bike rides from your doorstep.
The heated infinity pool is shared with the other gites and overlooks the river. It has stone entry steps, is fenced and has access to the games room, adventure playground (separately fenced) and mini-football. Bikes (kids and adults), fishing and kayaking are all available as are blow-up pool toys and sit on toys.

Truly was idyllic! Photos don't really do the either setting or the mill justice. We instantly relaxed the moment we arrived. The accommodation is lovely - really spacious and comfortable and furnished in beautiful French style. River location is really stunning. Play area, games rooms, bikes, kayaks, etc, etc were great for the children. Pool is big, very well looked after and lots of options for sun or shade (it was very hot even in May!). We also really, really liked nearby Sommieres which has an excellent market, pretty narrow streets, lots of lovely cafes and lovely boutique style shops. Would definitely recommend! We're going back in the summer!
