Moulin des Sources is the perfect French country retreat. It is located in the enchanting countryside near Gordes. We drove through many apple orchards and olive groves (as well as vineyards and olive oil mills) on the way to Moulin. Gerard & Genevieve were gracious hosts - there was a bit of a language barrier as I spoke minimal French and Gerard spoke very little English. Gerard was creative and used Google Translate on his laptop to communicate so it worked out well. We were 2 couples and stayed in the Ocre and Ardoise rooms. Our Ocre room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool. We had a magnificent walk in shower as well as a loft (ideal for travelers with children or plus 1). The home is historic and superbly renovated. We traveled in September and though the rooms did not have A/C, the weather was perfect - we slept with the French terrace doors open and enjoyed the starlit sky and sound of silence. The pool is magnificent, but was a bit too cold to dip into so we instead drank wine while lounging next to the pool amidst the pomegranate and fig trees.
Neighboring Gordes is spectacular and should not be missed. Also, Bonnieux is a short drive and is quite charming. The winery, home and grounds where 'A Good Year' was filmed is located at the foot of the town and a nice stopover.
Gerard recommended wonderful restaurants near Moulin - Le Vieux Bistrot and **Auberge de Lagnes. It was a short drive to Cassis and the Calanque as well as Aix en Provence for market day - well worth the drive.
*I will mention that we paid in advance for our rooms, but were not made aware of additional fees (perhaps for cleaning), which was a little surprising. I would encourage Gerard to open a PayPal account to avoid the hassle of bank transfers. You are welcome to pay cash upon arrival or departure, of course.
Overall, a wonderful B & B and accommodating hosts. A reasonable price for the rooms and breakfast. Will also mention that breakfast on the patio each morning was delightful and consisted of pastries, breads, jams, fruit, yogurt and coffee/juice. Thank you Gerard and Genevieve!
