Reviewed 22 October 2013

My girlfriend and me stayed for one night at this unique familial hotel. The Le Moulin du Chateau offers for his guests a generous garden with some fig trees and sunbeds. The hosts were very friendly and racommend us a tour for the next day to the Grand Canyon du Verdon and aix en provence (beautiful small young town, with some sweet and unique boutiques).

For dinner we got a unique meal with vegetables from the market, meat from a farmer in town and a delicious wine of the region - this was the best and the most typically meal we got on our 3 weeks tour through france. After dinner we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the starlit night.

The breakfast buffet offered everything you´re looking for. We were very sad to leave after only one night, but looking forward visiting this beautiful hotel/place next year again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with garden view - this room type is to recommend

I don't know if our expectations were too high given the good reviews on here and the lovely shots of Le Moulin du Chateau on their website but we were quite disappointed with our stay. To be fair, we didn't eat an evening meal as we only stayed one night and this coincided with the night that dinner is not available. We knew this when we booked so not a problem but perhaps the limited time we spent at Le Moulin du Chateau didn't give it chance to win us over. Our impressions was of relatively spartan rooms, an okay breakfast, welcoming owners and good facilities but a lack of atmosphere that I’d expect from an establishment of this size.
I think, if you are passing through on your way to visit the gorge that there are probably alternatives a little bit closer to your route and that unless dinner is being served you might want to look for somewhere that offers more options for dining that don't involve driving. I also think Le Moulin du Chateau is a little overpriced but I suspect that is due to demand for accomodation in the area.
Having said all that, the environment friendly ethos of the place is really good to see and is obviously more that just paying lip service to the idea, plus the building itself is amazing and you coudn't ask for a quieter spot. It certainly feels as though you are in rural Provence and that can be quite hard to find.

The hotel has around 10 rooms, which all different in decent style that suits to the location. We had a room to the backside, so even in the hot period with 35 degrees it was comfortable.
The house and the park in front invite to enjoy and relax.
The hosts are always very friendly and helpful, they helped us to organize the tours and had great tipps for hiking.
The location in the verdon area is great, within walking distance there is a beatiful lake and a gorge. The famous gorge of Verdon and further beautiful lakes are about 30-60 minutes away by car.
Also nice cities like Aix-en-Provence and Manosque are not more than 60 away by car.
Everyday there is only one menu for diner, prepared only for the guests with local products, really tasty, we did not miss any of them !
We were 6 days in this great hotel and also after 6 days we wanted stay much longer.

We visited Le Moulin Du Chateau in April. The weather was cool but we still had a wonderful stay. We had two children (ages 16 and 11) with us and the proprietors could not have been more gracious. The food was wonderful. We loved the village where the hotel is located and it is a great starting point for visiting the many sights in the region.

We loved it! We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Relax - all the rooms are very nice. You can't go wrong.

This was one of many B & B's we stayed in whilst on a 6 month round the world trip. After 5 weeks in France, we had experienced some good, and also some not so good, places to stay - this one was great! Edith and Nicholas are great hosts and they really have 'the whole B & B thing' worked out....comfortable accommodation, great setting and some of the best food we ate during our entire 5 weeks in France - they are both wonderful cooks! I highly recommend this fabulous and character-filled B & B to all.

A nice old converted olive mill with 10 guest rooms and about a half acre of grass out the front of the property, where you can play French boules (they are provided) or relax. Inside there is a pool table and a selection of books and games for use by guests. It's located in a very, very quiet village (more a hamlet really) in beautiful, rural Provence.

Le Moulin has the feel of a family run traditional bed and breakfast which is nice if that's what you want, but we felt it marketed itself more as a hotel, which is a bit of a stretch. The room was adequate but the lack of air conditioning (explained away as unnecessary due to the building's thick walls and part of the hotel's eco-friendly policy) resulted in a serious lack of sleep! The single, loud stand-alone fan just recycled the very, very warm night air around the room and at about 100 Euro per night in a "hotel", the least you hope for is some sleep!

There were no tea / coffee facilities in the room but tea was available downstairs for 1.95 Euro. Breakfast was also available, but again for an extra 10 Euro per guest, which we felt was excessive for what you got - croissants, small sliced fruits, cheese, bread, yoghurt, juice and tea / coffees.

At time of staying, Le Moulin were offering dinner (again, for an extra charge - we didn't get it so don't know how much) in the evening, served out the front of the building. This meant that in order to leave the hotel from 8pm you had to walk past all of the guests as they ate their dinner - and as this is a very quiet, small "hotel", you kind of felt a little uncomfortable.

So Le Moulin was in our opinion a nice, family run "hotel" but expensive for what you get and really more of a bed and breakfast.

We stayed for 6 nights in this heavenly spot and were reluctant to leave. Everything was just perfect, location, comfort, food and very nice hosts. The surrounding scenery is awe- inspiring. We had our two dogs with us and they loved it too.
