Les Cigales, located on the historic estate and mill of Moulin de la Roque, is ideally situated to visit Provence. It is only 800 meters from the charming traditional village of Noves, 15 mintues from Saint-Remy-de-Provence, 20 minutes from Avignon and the TGV station, 45 minutes from Marseille (and the airport, 20 minutes from the Luberon.
Why "Les Cigales"? Les cigales are the symbol of Provence. A tiny insect that starting every year on June 21, creates its song to begin the summer. They begin in the morning and stop each evening, their symphony, making music to our ears each day. In Provence, les Cigales is a symbol of good luck. We think that this is very appropriate as we wish only the best for each of our guests who stay here.
In our hameau, or small Provencal village of Le Moulin de la Roque, Les Cigales is central private and separate, yet convenient. It provides you stunning views of the grand park, it is close to the pool and just a few yards from the parking
This charming Provencal villa is large enough to accommodate 10 people very comfortably. This makes it perfect for your group or family as it has a large living area, dining area, and kitchen. Families with children love this villa due to its size, flexibity and the large lawn just in front where their children can play safely close by. Couples and adults will enjoy the privacy of each bedroom and bath.
Restored from an early 19th century stone barn, Les Cigales was originally used to store wheat for the mill. You will enjoy its panoramic views on the southern garden and the sounds of the gently flowing river just behind.
Entering Les Cigales from the southern garden, you will find a spacious stone terrace covered with Wysteria and Jasmin. Teak table, chairs and lounge chairs will entice you to waste away hours here. There is also a built-in stone barbecue.
Behind a large set of French doors, is your living area with comfortable seating for all, a flat screen television and an old large stone fireplace typical of France and this area. This spacious living area is open to both a large dining area (seating for up to 15) and just around the corner, a typical Provencal kitchen - fully equipped with everything you may need for your stay, including two refrigerators, convection oven, microwave, five burner gas cooktop, coffee and hot water maker and espresso machine.
On the ground floor, there is a wing just off your dining area which included three bedrooms, all decorated with typical Provencal fabrics and nice antiques. Each bedroom includes a bath (shower or bath/shower) and for extra convenience, there are separate hidden vanity sinks.
On the second floor, you will find two additional large bedrooms (each with vanity sinks), one full bath and shower, and a separate toilet room.
