Mouline was built as a small water mill in about 1850. It was burnt down
38 years ago and stood as a ruin for 35 years. The owners have completed a
sympathetic restoration that combines many of the original features with
the extensive use of glass to take advantage of the magnificent views.
The Play Therapy Training Centre uses a converted barn as a teaching
facility and shady areas of the grounds and other structures for the
experiential and practical exercises.
The Centre stands in 26 acres bordered by a mill stream, set in the beautiful Tarnaise countryside. The grounds contain a
small lake with an island and rowing boat. There is a heated salt water
swimming pool for your use. Most students have a dip before lunch and at
5pm after the teaching. We grow all our own vegetables and you will
be able to pick fruit that is in season from a selection of over 70

English and 6 ladies' hairdressers(!) The beautiful city of Albi,
(Toulouse-Lautrec centre), with many hotels, is a 20 minute drive way.

July and August although there can be some cool days. In 20056
temperatures during teaching hours ranged from 16C to 42C. As a
result air conditioning has been installed in the teaching room!

services from many UK airports (typically £60 return) is less than an
hour away. Other services, including international flights are available via Amsterdam and Paris.
