We stayed at the Moulin for the third time in April with our two boys. Again we had a great time and enjoyed having such a lovely home base for our expeditions. We enjoyed being able to come home and cook ourselves up a French meal. I think my favourite part was my early morning stroll to the bakery for our daily supplies. It was lovely and peaceful with everyone and everything waking up around me. It was nice being able to do some washing as well, as this is very difficult for a family on tour!
Guy and Gabby are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed the tour of the mill. Our boys loved this as well and were in awe of the old machines. My husband loved to run through the park next door and keeps saying he wishes he had that at home. The boys loved the trampolines and kicking a ball around on the grass outside. We even played badminton.
Although we have stayed there three times we had not ran out of things to do. We visited some of the same locations and a few new ones. We really enjoyed Le Beaux and the boys did especially. I would recommend this as a day trip. We also went to Rousillon again and this time went on the walk through the red rock.
Noves is a great place to base yourself and easy to get there from Paris on the TGV direct to Avignon.
