My wife and I had never tried the bed and breakfast route, but our experience at Moulin Vieux was on par with our best hotel stays. We arrived in Provence without a real itinerary after our stay at Moulin Vieux and not only did Claude and Sylvaine give us great tips on where to visit in Provence, but they helped us figure out where to visit next, with Claude scouring the country's weather reports. We stayed in the "romance" room and it was marvelous, with an extremely comfortable bed and huge bathroom and shower (and elegant tub). The entire home was spotless and it was a supremely pleasant and relaxing experience.The breakfast we enjoyed every morning over our five day stay was epic, with homemade jam from Sylvaine's copper pots. If you ask me, the accommodations were way underpriced, but I can't recommend a stay here highly enough. We stayed in early May and it was a great (relatively non-touristy) time to visit Provence.
