Provence Sights

Moulin de Daudet (Daudet's Windmill)

Fodor's Review

Summering in the Château de Montauban, Daudet frequently climbed the windswept, pine-studded hilltop to the rustic old windmill that ground the local grain from 1814 to 1915. There the sweeping views of the Rhône valley and the Alpilles inspired his famous, folkloric short stories called Lettres de Mon Moulin. Today you can visit the well-preserved Moulin de Daudet, where there's a small museum devoted to his writings; you can walk upstairs to see the original milling system.
