25 km from Crest, in the middle of lush nature in an exceptional natural setting, stands a centuries old mill restored as a two star classified hotel, logis 2 chimneys and 2 cocottes. On the border of the Drôme Valley, the Vercors, the Royans and the Diois, this exceptional site is classified as Natura 2000. Welcome to the Moulin de la Pipe
A place full of history, Le Moulin owes its name to a miller of the early twentieth century, a heavy pipe smoker nicknamed "Jean de la Pipe"! It was in 1918 that the Moulin became an inn, after the flood of 1914 had washed away the canal, the dam and the mill’s installations. Several owners succeeded each other thereafter. An activity of industrial dairy reigned here even from 1936 to 1983 always alongside the inn run by Georgette Charbonnel, a true local celebrity who regaled the inhabitants of the region and the tourists from 1936 to 1985. For decades, the hotel restaurant Moulin de la Pipe was a meeting place for fishermen, huntsmen, card players, bakers ... a stop for tourists and a very festive spot for several years when it turned into cafe-concert, in 1987.
Today, Franck Laforest has refocused the activity on hotels and restaurants. With his team, he welcomes you with your family, solo, with friends or lovers for unforgettable active holidays or to celebrate an event...
