Our stay at Le Moulin Vieux was nothing short of wonderful. From the moment of our arrival, we felt like family or valued friends, and could not have been made to feel more welcome. Claude and Sylvie-Anne were warm, considerate, “down to earth” people, who obviously enjoy making new acquaintances and sharing their “joie de vivre”. They are attentive and friendly, while at the same time being unobtrusive and very respectful of one’s need to relax and enjoy some quiet or alone time. They were pleased to provide very helpful recommendations as to local “must do”, “must see” attractions. The loft in which we stayed was very tastefully decorated, with considerable attention to proper maintenance and detail. In fact, the entire property is lovingly attended to and looked after with pride. The rooms are quiet and all facilities are of a high standard. The Moulin Vieux is located in a quiet area outside of Avignon, close to the Sorgue River. Breakfasts were of a rare high standard and to call them “continental” is probably a disservice. Sylvie-Anne cheerfully and with pride provided fresh made crepes, muffins, and other treats in the morning in addition to the excellent, fresh, warm croissant, chocolatines, and other delights. A very nice selection of breads, cheeses, fresh fruit, fruit salad, juice, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, water, etc, were also available. It is not hard to understand why this B&B is so highly rated. Based on the very reasonable price, the available facilities, the friendly – welcoming manner, the quality of the establishment, etc., I can only imagine that Le Moulin Vieux will soon have a very long waiting list. Making a reservation well in advance would seem wise, although, checking for a last minute opening would certainly be worth the effort. I cannot imagine a nicer place to stay in Provence. While we will be returning to Canada in the near future after 2+ years in Europe, and have no immediate plans to return, we will certainly be pleased to recommend this B&B to our closest friends and most reputable acquaintances. If we do return, we would cheerfully arrange our plans to be able to stay here again.
