From Harvey’s Point In The Hills Of Donegal To An Old Mill In The South West Of France
Donegal hoteliers Deirdre McGlone and Marc Gysling have fallen for a new business venture. It was love at first sight on Valentine’s Day, celebrating their wedding anniversary, when they were taken by a charming 700 year-old Mill for sale. Operational as a private holiday rental, it seemed to fit perfectly into the couple’s ‘retirement’ dreams - if you call building a new business retirement!
Le Moulin sur Célé is an exclusive self-catering holiday villa in the Lot valley, South West France, situated on the banks of the river Célé with luxury accommodation for up to twelve guests, private swimming pool, tennis court and a selection of outdoor activities such as canoeing, horse-riding, cycling or hiking.
“It’s been a year since we sold our beloved Harvey’s Point and we now feel ready to re-awaken our passion for hospitality and tourism. We are really excited about this new adventure and we hope to build Le Moulin brand so that it is synonymous with quality and exceptional customer service. It is our vision to offer a unique and private holiday experience for guests who wish to escape, unwind and enjoy a well deserved holiday. We believe that we can sprinkle our own kind of magic on Le Moulin”, says Deirdre.
Covid-19 has put the travel world on hold, but this has given Deirdre and Marc time to enhance the five star standard of the residence and focus on targeting the Irish, UK and International markets in the future. They are confident that as soon as travel restrictions are lifted, there will be high demand for safe, rural retreats that offer a combination of luxury and homely charm blended with the warmest of welcomes.
