CONVERTED WATERMILL NEAR SISTERON, PROVENCE

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday mill in Sisteron - Moulin de Fombeton

Sleeps up to 15. 4 bedroom secluded XVIIIth century watermill with swimming pool and large garden bordered by the river Sasse. Further bedroom with 7 beds in separate building ('cabanon') for younger guests. 3 km from charming old village of Valernes and 10 km from Sisteron. This charming provençal house, a fully refurbished watermill, was built shortly before the French Revolution; it has no directly visible neighbours. The river Sasse runs in the back of the garden.

A separate stone building, the 'cabanon', provides a bedroom with 7 beds, ideal for kids or teenagers. From the house, you have a wonderful view on the Montagne de Lure, the Rocher de Gache and the River Sasse. No direct neighbours to be seen or heard! Enjoy the quietness of this secluded location. Or make as much noise as you wish: there will be no one to hear you!

Wir waren vom 10.5.- 31.5.08 im Paradies, einfach herrlich
für die Kinder wunderbar, sie waren aus dem beheizten Pool nicht mehr rauszukriegen, mit bis zu 15 Personen
mit etwas Rücksichtnahme und kluger Ablauforganisation
kein Problem, Service ausgezeichnet, abends die Kamin-
stunden unvergeßlich, außerdem zum Grillfan geworden, kein Wunder bei dieser Ausstattung, Die Fürsorge des
Vermieters ist besonders zu erwähnen, die Anbindung an
alle möglichen Freizeitaktivitäten ist excellent

Idyllic - pure relaxation

  • 5 out of 5
I didn't want to submit a review for fear that this charming place will become more and more popular thereby potentially limiting the chances I will have of rebooking in the coming years. That would be doing the owners a massive disservice though and so I will also add my words of praise for this charming place which has been lovingly restored by it's charming owners, who, I should add, were an absolute pleasure to deal with as were the onsite couple who welcomed us and showed us the ropes as it were.

We were two young families, each with a young child, and we stayed here for a week. We were lucky - the weather was fantastic, which allowed us to lounge by the pool, eat out every night and generally recuperate and recharge our batteries. The kids loved the pool and the ample space the "park" offered - essentially around half a football pitch worth of grassed land to run about in. The petanque pitch was also put to good use!

I shall always think back fondly of the Moulin de Fombeton and equally I shall always look forward to my next stay there. The area is beautiful, rural, peaceful (bar the deafening crickets at night - but that's the type of "noise" one wants on such a holiday in such a fantastic place) and offers plenty to do if you are not satisfied by doing almost nothing but swimming, coooking, eating and drinking.

herrlicher Motorradurlaub in der Provence

  • 5 out of 5
Wir waren mit 11 "Donnermeistern" eine Woche in der wunderschönen Moulin de Fombeton und haben einen ereignisvollen, erholsamen, lustigen, romatischen Urlaub inmitten der wundervollen Natur der Provence verbracht.

Das Haus ist in einem absoluten Topzustand, die Abende vor dem Kamin werden unvergesslich bleiben, die Aussicht beim Frühstück auf die Bergmassive sowie die Ausfahrten quer durch die Provence ebenfalls.

Nathalie und Michel waren stets zur Stelle, falls mal aus Versehen der Alarm ausgelöst wurde und auch sonst fühlten wir uns rundherum gut betreut.

Die "Donnermeister" werden garantiert nicht das letzte Mal in diesem herrlichen Urlaubsdomizil gewesen sein.

Eine tolle Woche in DER Mühle

  • 5 out of 5
Wir waren zu elft die letzte Mai Woche in dieser Traum-Mühle, 8 Erwachsene im Haupthaus, 3 im Anbau und es hat alles geklappt. Die Übergabe durch Natalie ging zügig und wir haben uns unglaublich wohl in der sehr persönlich eingerichteten Mühle gefühtl. Betten sind top, Zimmer sehr schön eingerichtet, der Kamin ist unglaublich. Pool und Aussenbereich ist sehr gepflegt und der Weber Grill hat uns mehrere Abende sehr gute Dienste geleistet! Wir werden zurück kommen!!!

einsames, wundervolles Paradies

  • 5 out of 5
Von A-Z einfach ein perfekter Urlaub. Wir waren zu acht (davon 4 Kinder 2 - 6 jährig) und unsere Kinder haben ein grosses Abenteuer erleben dürfen. In der Mühle und der Umgebung gibt es so vieles zu entdecken. Der Park ist gross genug um Golf zu spielen! Und für uns war es Erholung pur. Zudem wurden wir herzlich empfangen mit bereits vorhandenem Abendessen und Wein. Wie unser Vorredner empfehlen ich auch eher nicht mehr als 8 P., das Nebenhaus ist recht feucht und eignet sich höchstens für Teenies. Wer gerne ans Meer reist: Fahrtzeit recht lang, ca. 1h20min. Wunderschöner Markt in Forcalquier (Fahrtzeit 40min). Markttage der Umgebung sind am Kühlschank angeschlagen.

Owner's Response: Wie wir selber erfahren dürften in Juli dieses Jahres, ist es indertat notwendig geworden, nach ein besonderen nassen Winter 2008/09, der Cabanon zu renovieren, was für Herbst 2009 geplant ist. Es wird aber für nur Juchendlichen geeignet bleiben und wir empfehlen nicht kleine Kindern (unter 6 Jahren) oder Erwachsenen im Cabanon zu unterbringen.

Moulin de Fombeton, Sisteron

  • 5 out of 5
Absolute Spitzenklasse, die Beschreibung entspricht voll der Realität, alles sehr gepflegt und sauber. Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war äußerst zuvorkommend, die Abwicklung sehr korrekt. Als besondere und sehr geschätzte Aufmerksamkeit, stand bei unserer Ankunft ein Abendessen und ein guter Wein bereit.
Die Anlage ist bestens geeignet für Familien mit Kindern. Die Kinder erwartet unbegrenzte Ferien- und Abenteuerfreuden.
Das Objekt sollte jedoch, abhängig vom Anspruch, nicht mit mehr als 6-7 Personen belegt werden, da neben einem wunderschönen Bad mit Badewanne, nur eine Dusche zur Verfügung steht.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können das Domizil wärmsten empfehlen.
