LE MOULIN DE LA ROQUE - Noves (between Saint-Remy-de-Provence and Avignon), is a beautiful estate of 5 hectares (12 acres). Very secluded, it is accessible only by two private lanes, one lined with century old plane trees, the other bordered by a lovely flowing river that fed water to the mill for hundreds of years.
IDEALLY LOCATED IN THE HEART OF PROVENCE - one of the primary benefits of staying at the Moulin- in addition to the beauty and charm of the estate, we are within 20 to 30 minutes from the most of the major sites of Provence such as : the Luberon (Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Ménerbes et Lacoste), Avignon and the Palace of the Popes, Chateaufneuf-du-Pape and the Cotes du Rhone wine region, the Pont du Gard, Arles, Les Beaux and the Les Alpilles. We are at 45 minutes from Aix en Provence and 1 hour from the charming seaside fishing village of Cassis or the Camargue.
THE TRADITIONAL PROVENCAL VILLAGE of NOVES is just a short walk from the estate. Noves is not yet flooded with tourists. Here you will find the real Provencal life as you pick up your bread, pastries and groceries from the small local markets each day. In the afternoons you can enjoy incredible sunsets from our cliff top as you take walks through the forest (over 150 hectares) perhaps gathering fresh rosemary and thyme for your dinner.
THE ESSENCE OF PROVENCE is alive at the Moulin where the history is rich and the weather and charm unsurpassed. When you arrive, your senses will be immediately tantalized by the scents of thyme and rosemary which grows wild all around the property. But the beauty of the dazzling sunlight as it bathes adjacent vineyards, orchards and olive groves is what people and the artists from around the world flock to Provence to experience.
BARON GUY FALLON & GABRIELLE (Gaby), the owners : we will welcome you as our guests to visit our estate, our home, our paradise in Provence. We live in the manor house on the estate and are here to support you in any manner you need whether it be translation, touring, shopping, directions, if you need a doctor, to help you integrate into the French Provencal culture or if you may simply need to borrow a “cup of sugar”. Nothing can ruin a vacation more than if you have a problem in your vacation home. We have a full time staff (no need to call a plumber and wait a week) who will attend to your needs immediately whenever possible. This is rare in Provence!
A SMALL PROVENCAL VILLAGE : Le Moulin and its renovation has been a passion for us for over 17 years. We have renovated it with taste, great attention to keeping the history and the charm and we have created a unique ambiance that reminds us of a quaint Provencal village of another age. It now includes five charming houses around the main garden and four beautiful lodgings cleverly incorporated into the historic old mill. Each property is unique and was designed to combine tradition and modern comfort. Decorated in the spirit of Provence, they are spacious and fully equipped so you can stay as long as you want. Each entity, very private from the other, has its own terrace, barbecue and garden furniture in teak.
SPACIOUS, there is a large open grass park bordered by old trees for running and playing, with games for children and adults; pétanque (provencal lawn bowling game), badminton, volleyball, two large trampolines, table tennis and foosball and a beautiful Roman style swimming pool with two cabanas.
THE FLEXIBLE STRUCTURE OF THE ESTATE, makes us a great alternative for groups of any kind whether it be artists workshops, family reunions or any other sort of large group who desires space, privacy, beauty and support. We also have two large rooms which can serve as meeting space, studios or for meals and receptions for your group.
We hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you into our home and to share our Provence and our mill with you for your holidays.
