Please see our many nice reviews on TA by searching, Moulin de la Roque, Noves.
As early as the 15th century, the Roux family was given the rights by the Pope to use the river for a flour mill, called la Roque. For over 350 years, the same owners ran this ancient flour mill and it grew to a grand status. Now called Le Moulin de la Roque (mill by the rock) Guy and Gaby have renovated these historic buildings once used to serve this flour mill into tasteful cottages and vacation villas. Authentic with original beams, stone walls, and crisp plastered wall,
La Maison du Meunier, this charming two bedroom cottage, was the original home to the miller. It has been updated keeping all the old world charm but adding many modern conveniences for life today. You will find the original beamed ceilings upstairs and down, original stone and fresh plaster walls, french windows, and doors revealing stunning views of the estate. This cottage offers privacy (independent home), peace, beauty, charm history, and convenience. For cooler months, a nice stone fireplace!
There are two nice bedrooms upstairs with one bath/shower with sink nicely incorporated with a beamed ceiling, stone and plastered walls and travertine marble. There are two toilet rooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, private and separate from the bath. Hairdryer provided for your convenience.
The newly renovated kitchen includes all the modern conveniences of home - blender, food processor, dishwasher, toaster, coffee machine, Nespresso machine, convection oven, gas burner cooktop, second kitchen with washing machine, table for four and much more. Double french windows open to your terrace and provide lovely views of the estate.
A comfortable salon with sectional upholstered sofa and two chairs provide a nice peaceful environment to watch television or enjoy your favorite book. Large french doors open on to your private attached Wisteria covered terrace with teak table, iron forged chairs (with cushions!), lounge chairs and built-in barbecue. Again, the views of the estate from this house and terrace are magnificent.
