About Le Moulin
Located in the heart of the Célé valley in southwest France, Le Moulin is an exclusive holiday rental property that combines rustic charm with high standards of personalised service for up to 10 guests. Owned and managed by the Gysling family, this former 16th century watermill is available to rent on a weekly basis from May to October. Guests enjoy the privacy of the grounds, swimming pool and riverbank, as well as exploring the Lot region of France which is noted for it’s food, wine, culture and stunning scenery on the pilgrim’s path to Santiago de Compostela.
Husband and wife team Marc Gysling and Deirdre McGlone have a proven track record in hotel-keeping, having, over a period of 30 years, built and managed the multi-award winning Harvey’s Point hotel in Donegal, Ireland. Following the sale of their hotel in 2019, they fulfilled their life-long dream to buy a property in France. Over the past few years, they have renovated Le Moulin to an exceptionally high standard and the property opened its doors to welcome guests in the summer of 2023.
Enjoying their return to the world of hospitality, the Gysling family hopes to offer a unique and private holiday experience for guests and to build Le Moulin brand so that it is synonymous with quality and exceptional customer service.
Both Marc and Deirdre share a love for the French way of life, which is rooted in simple, timeless pleasures – that is being immersed in nature and appreciating fine food and wine. They love to share their passion for taking care of people and they understand the importance of making Le Moulin such a special place to visit with a focus on attention to detail for every step of the guest journey. Their motto is “to go the extra mile with a smile”.
What makes a holiday at Le Moulin so special?
- Exclusivity – peace and quiet in private grounds by the river Célé
- Location – part of the Causses du Quercy Natural Regional Park. Near iconic tourist attractions and off the beaten track gems
- Personalised customer service – your experienced hosts are always nearby and happy to be of service by sharing their local knowledge of the region – from unusual places, family activities, local specialties, amazing local markets and gastronomic cuisine ranging from simple village bistros to Michelin starred restaurants
Work has just begun on the renovation of an old cottage and barn near the Le Moulin. Both properties can be rented individually or as part of Le Moulin collection.

‘This is a truly amazing place; half of me wants everybody to know about it and half of me wants to keep it a secret’
Enjoying her return to the wonderful world of hospitality, Deirdre is doing what she does best – looking after guests. She loves doing the laundry, cleaning the house and adding little touches to make Le Moulin even more special. Her favourite pastimes include taking Harvey the dog for a walk, sampling fine French wine and dining on fabulous French food.
From cheffing to IT and website design to general maintenance, Marc has spent the past two years realising his vision for Le Moulin. He has overseen the entire renovation of the property and not one to sit on his laurels, he is already working on plans for new projects that are in the pipeline. He loves the French way of life and in particular, the favourable weather.
With a great talent for building design, Carl is currently studying Architecture in Dublin. Prior to that, he spent a year with Marc working on the renovation project at Le Moulin. During summer 2023, he was responsible for swimming pool maintenance and helping Patrick in the garden. Carl enjoys exploring the Lot region, looking for unique off the beaten track places to visit.
Having moved to France to study business in the International Business School in Toulouse, James spent his summer working in the prestigious Chateau de la Treyne near Rocamadour. During his days off, he helped out at Le Moulin. He has become fluent in French.
The youngest member of the Gysling family is pursuing her dream to become a hotel manager and is studying in Shannon College of Hotel Management in Ireland. She hopes to secure work placement in France next summer having helped out at Le Moulin in it’s first season.
Living in the local village of Saint-Sulpice, Patrick has been a loyal member of Le Moulin team for over 20 years. His first job was working in the vineyard and he was responsible for making a rather excellent Malbec on the property. A qualified tree surgeon, horticulturalist and canoe instructor among his many talents, Patrick takes great care of the gardens and grounds at Le Moulin.
France is now home to Harvey, the 3 year old Golden Labrador. He has adapted very well to a climate that is different from Ireland. His favourite pastime is jumping in the river to cool off as well as picking the largest stones that he can find and placing them on the river bank. Harvey loves to welcome guests and he adores being the centre of attention (only when allowed 🙂
