At the heart of the village of Fontvieille, in les Alpilles regional park, hometown of the author Alphonse Daudet who wrote “Letters from my mill” stands an authentic stone house in the shade of hundred-year-old plane trees. The house has been beautifully restored and decorated in 2021 by its present owners.
Located close to the main square with its shops, restaurants, and cafes. Fontvieille is a few miles from the castle of “les Baux” and Saint Rémy de Provence. The mill of Fontvielle is up a hill surrounded by olive trees, pines, oaks where Daudet found his inspiration.
