What to do when it's the nearly the end of September and it's nigh on 27 degrees at Le Moulin? Why, put on your bikini and sunbathe of course!! 
 
Sunny thoughts 
 
Lying in the sun outside my gite and I'm still revelling in the success that was our very first Salon du Mariage (click here for the video); it was a great afternoon and I got to meet a few of my neighbours that I hadn't yet had the pleasure of meeting - how cool is that? 
 
We had 3 'brides' who thoroughly enjoyed themselves, strutting their stuff down our red carpet catwalk. Lamberts, our wedding dress supplier, did us proud with a selection of utterly gorgeous gowns and, along with the talents of Sandrine Bancroft, the hair stylist, and the make-up artistry of Belle-Essentielle, the brides brought a tear to the eye of many a spectator in the room, envisioning their own daughters making the transition to wifedom... 
 
We have already received two potential bookings for the beginning of next year so happy days :0) 
 
Now, where's that sun cream... 
First of all, let me introduce myself, Hello I’m Dorn, a wife of 20+ years, mummy to two teen adults and the proud owner/manager of Le Moulin de la Quentiniere. 
 
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT 
 
Along with the hubby, I’ve owned LMQ since 2007, making it just over 11 years since we took the drive from our home in Buckinghamshire to the sunny village of Desertines and fell in love at first sight! Yep, saw it, bought it. 
 
DREAM PURCHASE 
 
It was a proper wreck when we first signed on the dotted line... Now, don’t get me wrong, out of the four fantastic buildings that are now part of our site, one of them, La Petite Maison, http://www.le-moulin-quentiniere.co.uk/la- petite-maison.htm was so cute and practically intact – piece of the roof missing on one of the top floor rooms - and it gave us some wonderful family holidays so we were perfectly happy with our dream purchase so it wasn’t until some time in 2009 that we decided to start the refurbishment of the other buildings.
