You see our reviews by going to our website at Moulin de la Roque -Noves. Le Petit Moulin is a charming 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa/apartment located on the first floor/second story of the historic mill. It was just restored only two years ago to reveal the original stone walls and beamed ceilings of the historic mill. Grand balcony and glass french doors from master bedroom overlooking the olive tree and lavender gardens. Second bedroom, also a balcony with private stairs leading to your courtyard and private terrace and barbecue tucked next to the river.
Each bedroom can be either king or twin depending on your configuration of group. The decor has also been completely redone with high quality provencal fabrics, furniture and antiques. Modern, updated fully equipped kitchen and baths.
Quality furniture, comfortable with pleasing and relaxing colors. Charming ambiance, nice views of the estate and wonderful light. Very comfortable for any family or group configuration.
Le Moulin de la Roque is an historic estate where once a 15th century flour mill operated. All of the old buildings have been cleverly and tastefully renovated to create a little hamlet or provencal village. All the lodgings are very private from the other as the estate is quite large. You will enjoy the expansive grounds, the seclusion (located between a large forest and a river) and the beauty of the park and gardens. It is peaceful, a little piece of Provencal heaven right in the heart of Provence. You can reach just about any well known site in Provence in 15 minutes to 1 hour. Our village of Noves is only 800 meters so you can walk into town each morning for your bread or groceries.
The owners, Guy and Gaby would be delighted to welcome you as their guests. You have as much privacy or as much support as you need as the owners live on the estate and take pride in making very special and memorable holidays for their guest.

About the owner: We are Guy and Gaby, your hosts at Moulin de la Roque in Noves Provence France. Guy came from Belgium 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, 12 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 Noves, France:
I came from Belgium 25 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 15 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 is still here! 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, the markets, charming villages and cuisinel. I am an avid hiker and together we would love to gadvise you no matter what are your interests.
