Tradition & Experience
The B&B Domaine du Moulin welcomes you to the heart of the Provence! Our Bed & Breakfast is situated in the Provence in the South of France, right outside Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres, a medieval 12th century village that once belonged to the Popes of Avignon. B&B Domaine du Moulin dates back to the 15th century and offers a magnificent spacious mansion centered in a beautiful landscaped parc covering well over 4 hectares (10 acres).
Perfect to discover the Provence
You will find us right in the middle of the famous vineyards of Tavel and Lirac, and only 8 km from the famous wines of Chateau-Neuf du Pape. Avignon is about a 15 min drive and we are less than 30 mins away from Nimes, Orange, Mont Ventoux, and the famous Pont-du-Gard, one of the sites in the area that’s on the UNESCO World Heritage List. A visit to Aix-en-Provence, Marseille and the Mediterranean coast will take you about 50 mins.
Domaine du Moulin is classified by the Departement du Gard as a “Demeure Classée” and our Bed & Breakfast was subsequently awarded the maximum of 5 “Clés”.
At this luxurious Bed & Breakfast, you will see and breathe Provence in any season. Following a rigorous renovation in 2002 and updates in 2008, the owners have since created a warm and stunning place where you feel at home immediately, not in the last place by the heartwarming reception of your hosts Antoinette and Otto.
Noble Roots since the 15th Century
The old water mill was the first dwelling built and dates back to the 15th century. The mill house sits atop the river Nizon, which still flows underneath the B&B all seasons long, guaranteeing fresh cool air during the summer months accompanied by continuous beautiful soft soozing sounds of falling water.
Later, the main house was built on top of the old mill house, completing the “Domaine du Moulin”. The B&B has been updated to offer modern comfort in typical Provence style. All rooms have been beautifully renovated twice, once in 2002 and again in 2008, and all come with private bathrooms.
It is in the old mill house where the Apartment is located, equipped with updated kitchen and large living room. The apartment has a private entrance and is thus separated from the main house. See the Rooms page for more details.
The main house offers a large terrace overlooking the river Nizon and a large library area where you can leisure and relax.
The surrounding private parc covers well over 4 hectares (10 acres), and offers several different fruit trees, weaping willows, olive trees, a beautiful alley of century-old plantanes, a vegetable garden as well as many flowers, including a small lavender field.
Furthermore, you will find a swimming pool of 17×6 metres, a pool house, several private terraces, and a pond with terrace for picknicking or barbeque. You have access to two tennis courts, and a genuine “petanque” court, to test your jeu de boules skills…!
Alternatively, the area offers lots to explore and is packed with culture and activities.
