Set in an original seventeenth-century Provençal stone manor house, Moulin De Vernègues perfectly blends old with new. This dreamy gem overlooks the renowned Pont Royal Golf course, designed by none other than golfing legend Seve Ballesteros. Behind its historic façade, you’ll find annexed guest rooms so sleek and modern, you’ll think you’ve stepped out of the past and right into the future. These architect-designed accommodations are ultra-stylish yet supremely comfortable, and some even offer private balconies and Zen-like pools.
The third hole is located directly in front of the hotel patio, meaning you can literally walk straight onto the golf course at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner. However, if golf isn’t your thing, perhaps you’ll enjoy visiting the sublime MySpa, by L’Occitane, which boasts a serene Jacuzzi, or you can float your cares away in the outdoor swimming pool. At the end of the day, golfers and pleasure-seekers alike can come together over a glass of wine and some gastronomic delights in one of the hotel’s gourmet restaurants.

How to Get There
Nice photos but any review of the hotel stops here.
A Hotel is more than just pretty pictures and clean rooms. The staff was very rude, but my complaints start long before that.
We drove to the Gard booth 5 times to ask for directions and each time he gave us the wrong info. After going all different directions, he finally gave us the code to a gate at the end of a dead-end street. Why didn’t he just do that the first or second time we were there? Or at least told us how to reach the main entrance.
We had driven from Zürich all day and by this time we were upset and exhausted... so we go to check in. We had two rooms and we asked for the rooms to be together and she said yes no problem .
We are in our 70s they gave us rooms at the farthest away from the reception area that they could find. One of us needs a new Knee and is very crippled. They forgot to bring his luggage.
We get to the rooms, very far away from reception, and find out they are not together not even close. We asked if they could change the rooms for us and they told us there were no more rooms that were available!
We paid for a superior room! We checked in around 16:00. During this time we were not aggressive just tired.
Then I tried to call the other couple in their other room and couldn’t understand how to do it so I called reception and she just hung up on me!!!
I have tried calling reception again for help and they will not answer the phone. After this the phone never worked.
I have to say, when we checked in we were all very nice. The only time we were a bit irritated was when they told us there were no other rooms. The place appears deserted and has several large buildings.
Also the telephone in the room did not work for the four days we were there and they never came to fix it for us. I couldn’t call emergency or anything ....if anything had happened to us.
I would advise not to stay here. They don’t care about guests at all. It’s worse than that.....they treat you appallingly.
It is also very far out of the way for anything except golf!
Do not stay here!
We booked a night there for a week end away and were quite happy with the place.
It was a great place and the pool and restaurant allowed us to make the most of our stay. The terrace of our room was very pleasant with a little stream and we enjoyed taking our breakfast there, although it was not great in terms of privacy as it was open on the access of the building and the spa. The pool and adjacent bar are also very enjoyable.
Lovely place 40 mins drive from Avignon train station. U relax and enjoy the nature.....the hotel has kept the old 18th century building's uniqueness ans adapted to present taste.
Nice golf course....fitness and open space to relax ur holidays
We stayed for 4 nights in Moulin de Vernegues, enjoying some of the Spa treatments and having dinner in the hotel restaurant 'Les Voutes'. Generally we were very satisfied with our stay, the staff was friendly, the site super, the room spacious, comfortable and clean. Of course there are always points for improvement, and I'm comparing with the better business hotels I'm generally staying in.
When breakfast starts at 07.30, all should be ready at 07.30. It seems the (limited) staff had difficulties in completing the buffet. On 2 of the 4 days the fresh fruit was missing, and one of the two coffee machines was always malfunctioning. It would be a good addition to the rooms if a water kettle and some the and coffee would be provided in the room (rather than having to order it with room service).
Regarding the Spa, the Occitane products could be promoted a bit more, meaning that the staff should be very well aware of the products offered. This was not always the case. But again, there is always something to complain about. Generally, it was a good stay.
Stayed here for 2 nights in August. The room had everything you needed and was very modern in decor. Breakfast was good and staff were helpful. We ate in the traditional restaurant and were a little disappointed with the main course being bland. We were staying here as part of a golf package, however when we arrived to play golf we were charged the green fees as the hotel had not communicated the fact it was part of the golf deal. We did later get a refund but only once we had found the confirmation email.
