Surpassed our expectations

  • 5 of 5

When booking a place to stay there is always a danger that somewhere is not quite as good as it's portrayed in words and pictures. This is not the case with the Old Mill. A group of us have just returned from a 2 week stay there and everything was superb. The pool area is fabulous with lots of space and tables for outdoor entertaining, the lounge is comfortable and cosy (with a huge TV for watching sport), the kitchen has all mod cons and the top floor bedrooms are luxurious. The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful in terms of advising how to get the best out of this beautiful area of France. I really hope that one day we will get the chance to go back there. Would I recommend the Moulin Vieux? Absolutely, without hesitation.

Entraigues itself is a pleasant little village with plenty of bakeries and a couple of small restaurants, all of which are good.

The station is a short walk away for trains in to Avignon (centre and TGV) and close to the next station along (Sorgues)

is a very high quality restaurant called La Table.

All in all, this is a really cracking place to stay.

As there were 12 of us, 3 generations of 2 families, we booked the whole house as a self-catering property, meaning we didn't get the delicious breakfasts everyone has raved about! We all agreed that this was the best holiday home we had stayed in, having everything we needed to enjoy a fabulous fortnight away. Rooms are clean, stylish and comfortable and the outside area is ideal for family relaxation and fun and games. Claude and Sylviane are a lovely, friendly, helpful couple, for whom nothing was too much trouble. They made the holiday perfect. Loads to do in the surrounding area, fantastic bakery a few minutes walk away, supermarket a few minutes further. Would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Claude and Sylviane!

A truly amazing spot.

  • 5 of 5

The location was very central,the breakfast each morning was delicious with fresh baked goods,accommodations were very private and comfortable and the outdoor area with the pool was perfect for happy hours and relaxing. But best of all were the owners Claude and Sylviane who were so helpful in planning our ventures and making our stay an unforgetable experience. A perfect vacation. Connie and Dave Doherty

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Claude and Sylviane's House was amazing. We rented the whole house for our large group of 15. All of the bedrooms were beautiful with high end en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen living and dining areas were newly remodeled, very large and comfortable. The outdoor area was equally as nice. The outdoor areas feature a garden with fruit trees, lavender and areas to play soccer, basketball and pétanque. On the other side of the house are the pool, outdoor covered kitchen and dining, and a large fire place. There is also a car port with a ping pong table. There was something for everyone at Le Moulin Vieux.

Claude and Sylviane could not have been more accommodating. Claude picked a group of us up at the train station in Avignon and led our group on the 20 minute ride back to the house. Once there he arranged for dinner for us on the first night. The following day Claude and Sylviane gave us the best summary of where to go in Provence. This helped us greatly to narrow down our day trips to the must see villages and landmarks. Claude also supplied us with new soccer balls, basketballs, and ping pong equipment as well as making sure that the pool and all other amenities were working well.

The area around Le Moulin Vieux is equally as beautiful as the property itself. Just outside the front gate is the river Sorgue. There is a wooded walking path along the Sorgue that eventually leads to a quiet road surrounded by farmland with mountain views. This made for amazing walks and bike rides. Within 2 blocks of the property is a bakery with very good baguettes and pastries and rotisserie chicken and pork on Sunday's. There is also a small market and large grocery store less than a mile from the property. The House is far enough removed from the village center that it is very quiet.

Provence itself is beautiful. At Claude and Sylviane's recommendation we visited at least 10 villages including: Gordes, Arle, Le Beaux, St. Remy de Provence, Avignon, Velaron. All of the recommended villages were well worth visiting.

Overall Le Moulin Vieux should be at the top of anyone's list when looking for a luxury property centrally located for day trips or a place to stay and relax all day. The property was beautiful, the attention we received was excellent and the location can't be beat.

Muy buena opción para vacaciones en la Provenza

  • 5 of 5

Nuestra estancia de una semana en Le Moulin Vieux ha sido perfecta. Dispone de todas las facilidades, las camas son muy cómodas. Muy buena conexión wifi. Las habitaciones son amplias y la decoración de muy buien gusto. Es muy limpio, está perfectamente bien situado cerca de Avignon y del Luberon. Para degustar vinos de Chateauneuf Du Pape, o de Gigondas, Vacqueyras o Tavel son sólo 20 minutos de coche. La piscina dispone de un cobertizo donde se puede cenar, dispone de nevera y barbacoa. Volveremos seguro. Gracias!
