Le Moulin - Location

The Location

Scenes from nearby villages: Gordes, the church at Oppede le vieux, and Senanque Abbey.

The house is in the vineyards between the villages of Maubec and Oppede, and Oppede le vieux. It is under a mile to a cafe, two restaurants, three bakeries, butcher and a grocery store.

The Luberon's famous hill-top villages are all within 15 minutes: Gordes, Bonnieux, Roussillon, Lacoste, Menerbes, Goult, etc. And the towns like the antiques mecca of Isle sur la Sorgue, and Fontaine de Vaucluse, where the Sorgue river emerges fully formed from deep underground.

Within an hour are the splendid Provence cities of Avignon, Arles, St Remy, Tarascon, Orange, Aix-en-Provence, Nimes, as well as the Camargue, Marseille, and the Rhone wine trail.

If you are coming to Provence to relax rather than take everything in, there is a market every day in a different village close by. The best for local produce is the farmer's market 5 minutes away in Coustellet on Sunday mornings (April-December). And there are wineries all around where you can taste their recent offerings and buy by the bottle.

The castle at Lourmarin, shopping in Roussillon, and a street in Goult.
