St. Remy de Provence farmhouse description

Please see additional reviews on the internet by searching , Moulin de la Roque, Noves.

Les Cigales is located on the grand historic estate of LE MOULIN DE LA ROQUE, a stunning twelve acre gated estate situated in the heart of Provence between Saint Remy and Avignon.

Completely secluded and calm, the Moulin is accessible by two private drives shaded by old hovering Plane trees on one side and a beautiful flowing stream on the other.

Walk into our quaint village of Noves (an authentically french provencal village, no tourists) where you can enjoy the local cafés, open air market, or pick up your daily baguette at a charming boulangeri. Or, take one of the paths leading off the main garden and enjoy incredible vistas of the Les Alpilles on over 370 acres (150 hectares) of forest and hiking trials.

We, Baron Guy Fallon and Gabrielle, are your hosts and welcome you to stay on our estate, our home.

You will of course be as independent as you wish however there is a great advantage to having the owners, such as us, on site.

Nothing can ruin a vacation more than if you should have a problem in your house. With many private home rentals, you will have to contact an agency who in turn will contract for the work (and in Provence, you never know when this help will arrive as we are very relaxed here).

We have a full time staff to take care of your problems immediately if they should occur. In addtion, we are here to provide you support for translation, introduction into the french and provencal cultures, touring advice, restaurants, medical assistance as needed and any other thing you may need, even it if is just to borrow a cup of sugar.

It is our goal to assure as much as possible that your vacation and your experience with us and in Provence is a fantastic and memorable one.

Our charming house, Les Cigales, is the perfect lodging for families and groups. It was restored from an early 19th century stone barn, This charming house was originally used to store wheat for the mill. It offers a beautiful panoramic view of the estate as it is situated to the south and the gardens and the large lawn.

It is a great gathering spot for your group or family as it has a large living area, dining area, and kitchen and two full glass French doors leading to your stone Wisteria covered terrace with teak tables and chairs and integrated barbecue.

The living and dining area are spacious and tastefully decorated with fresh provencal fabrics, large oak dining table and chairs, sectional sofa and antiques from Baron Fallon’s family. There is a large stone fireplace in the center making winters very cozy and warm and in summer offering additional charm and history.

The large kitchen offers views of the southern lawn, two refrigerators, large cooking and preparation area and all the modern appliances and cookware you would need to prepare the best provencal meal.

There are three bedrooms in a private wing on the ground floor, each with bath either ensuite or just adjacent. Having no stairs is perfect for small children or our more elderly guest who are more comfortable with less obstacles.

On the upper level, there is yet another private area, with two large bedrooms sharing a bath/shower. The toilets are in private rooms separate from the baths and there is a hidden sink in each bedroom for extra convenience.

As an additional feature, this house can be expanded to become an 8 bedroom, 7 bath house with two kitchens, an additional living area and a large salon to be used either for dining, meeting, reception or perhaps as an art studio.

Over many years, we have tastefully renovated our 300 year old mill into an enchantingly attractive setting, resembling a small provencal village (an unusual feature to find on such a traditional estate in Provence), keeping all the history and restoring with great care each structure to provide comfort, charm and modern conveniences.

Each year, we continue to renovate and update the estate with tasteful charm and careful attention to detail.

Each farmhouse is spacious, independent private and neatly nestled into the ambiance of the old mill and grand estate. The estate itself is very spacious and you will not feel the presence of others except as you pass each other perhaps on the lane to Noves or at the pool, which is also quite large and tranquil.

Please take a tour of the estate on our website, the address of which you can find on our VRBO page or just type in Moulin de la Roque, Noves on google.

AN INSPIRING SETTING for your provencal vacation as couples, families, friends, painting workshops, or any other type of group, the Moulin de la Roque can accommodate almost any requirement.

Available are large salons for groups,a large secluded swimming pool with surrounding terrace, covered cabana and pool house with shower and toilet facilities, a petanque court (Provencal ball game),two trampolines, and other recreational facilities for children as well as adults.

An expansive lawn allows for beautiful views and lots of space to run or play for the children.

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: We are Guy and Gaby, your hosts at Moulin de la Roque in Noves Provence France. Guy came from Belgium over 22 years ago searching for an estate in France where he could relax, engage in some agriculture and enjoy the provencal lifestyle and mild weather. He found such a place in the Moulin de la Roque. An historic old flour mill (dating back as far a the 1500s), located in the countryside, near a small village but not far from Saint Remy and Avignon. It was nestled up to a mountain and rock cliff and surrounded by a lovely river. There were fields of orchards and a small vineyard and a grand chateau. The only problem was that most of it was in ruins. He had no idea what he would do with it however, being an engineer by education and an architect at heart, he had no hesitation to begin a renovation of the property which continues even today. Guy met Gabrielle (Gaby), an American, 14 years ago when she came as a guest to the Moulin with some artists to paint. Air France had lost her luggage for over 10 days. At that time she spoke little French so he of course helped her to retrieve it. Thanks to Air France, she has never left.! Some say she is still there waiting for her luggage to arrive. Guy and Gaby are passionate about their mill and their Provence and love sharing both with their guests. When you arrive you are their guests, when you leave, you leave as their friends. They delight in sharing their secret discoveries of Provence and get pleasure in watching their guests make and share their own discoveries. Gaby loves to paint and often has art workshops at the mill. Guy is an avid hiker and would love to give you all his advice and discoveries of the quaint and hidden Provence wilderness. Gaby who loves the villages and markets, cooking, décor and shopping can give you expert advice if that is your passion. You will feel at home in Provence at the Moulin de la Roque with Guy and Gaby as your hosts.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Remy de Provence:
                  I came from Belgium 17 years ago searching for an estate in France where I could relax, engage in some agriculture and enjoy the provencal lifestyle and mild weather. I found such a place in the Moulin de la Roque. An historique old flour mill (dating back as far a the 1500s), located in the countryside, near a small village but not far from Saint Remy and Avignon. It was nestled up to a mountain and rock cliff and surrounded by a lovely river. There were fields of orchards and a small vineyard. The only problem was that most of it was in ruins. Being an engineer by education, I had no hesitation to begin a renovation of the property which continues even today. I met Gaby, an American 10 years ago when she came as a guest on my estate with other artists. Air France had lost her luggage for over 10 days. At that time she spoke little French so I helped her to retrieve it. Thanks to Air France, she has never left. Along with Gaby, we have created 9 villas or a little 'Provencal village. Each year we continue to restore and create this little village paradise for our guests. People from around the world visit the Moulin each year and are surprised by its beauty, quality and attention to detail. Some of our best compliments are 'it's so beautiful, even better than the internet site!' We enjoy being your hosts and treat you as if you are a guest in our home. We are there to provide you with advice on the area, reservations for restaurants, help if you are sick or lost or any other support you may need. You arrive as guests and you leave as friends. The little piece of paradise was created with you in mind. We are passionate about our estate, Provence and about you, our guests. Gaby loves to paint and often has art workshops at the mill. I am an avid hiker and would love to give you all my

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  Staying in Les Cigales at the Moulin de la Roque offers a unique mixture of stunning beauty, provencal history, community,new acquaintances, seclusion and privacy. As it is also the home of the owners who live full time on the estate, Guy and Gaby, your English speaking hosts and their staff, will provide you with whatever you need. You will have privacy and support at the same time, a great combination for the successful vacation. , It takes “self-catering” to another level! The chateau-like atmosphere of the estate provides a wonderful ambiance to either stay on the estate or to come home to every night after touring the area. The spacious grounds and structure of the estate are magnificient. The large swimming pool is secluded and secure for children. And in addition, there is a large park for children with plenty of games, including two trampolines. The small neighboring village of Noves, is in short walking distance from the estate. It is quaint and still holds onto the traditional provencal way of life. Charming and historic, it is relatively unknown so free of tourists and souvenir shops. It has all the provisions you will need for your stay-and friendly people who adore the occasional visitor from abroad.

For groups, the estate is ideal as each family or group, can take a house, all just around the corner, maintaining their privacy as a family or group, yet easily coming together in the large dining areas or terraces of each other’s homes for meals. And there is a lodging for every budget. Just adjacent ,there is a large forest,and mountain where you can take hikes each day in the midst of wild rosemary and thyme and enjoy the views.
