A gastronomic step
in the heart of Provence
A refined atmosphere for subtle and gourmet dishes
Le Moulin de Valaurie**** offers both the art of an excellent table, and the essence of Provence. The restaurant’s various spaces offer a refined and welcoming dining room, a luminous veranda and a shaded terrace facing the park and water. The décor serves as a setting for the plate. With its dark, rough wooden tables and light grey furniture, the decoration combines the charm of authenticity with refinement. Seating 60, the restaurant invites diners to a true gourmet getaway, to discover the gastronomic riches and flavours of the Drôme.
at night, and an Italian bistro for lunch...
Le Moulin de Valaurie**** varies its pleasures. At lunch, “La Trattoria” offers an Italian bistro menu, colourful and full of flavour. At night, “Le Moulin” gourmet restaurant invites guests to its delicate gourmet cuisine. It finds its inspiration in the region, and features local produce. In both cases, the chef, Riccardo Berto, has a perfect source of fresh produce from the garden and local purveyors. From starter to dessert to cocktails, some flavoured with syrups and liqueurs from the nearby Eygueebelle distillery, everything is home-made, with love. The menu is revised every month in order to embrace the multiplicity of Provençal bouquets, following the seasons. The wine list, largely regional, completes this gourmet harmony.
… Composed by a talented chef
Trout, Ardèche lamb, guinea fowl from the Drôme, organic asparagus from Valaurie, truffles. At the helm of the restaurant Moulin de Valaurie**** since 2017, Riccardo Berto revisits the great classics of French culinary tradition in applying a subtle inventiveness. He adds Provençal essences in his dishes with a focus on produce. Only 29 years old, he has pursued a career in Michelin star houses: Feba in Italy, one star, Gavroche in London and L’Atelier by Jean-Luc Rabanel in Arles, both with two stars, and with the three-star chef, Gilles Goujon.
A restaurant supplied from its own garden
Taking care to offer its guests impeccable quality and local supply, the Moulin de Valaurie**** has its own garden. Covering an area of 5000 square metres, including a greenhouse, it produces a tonne of fresh produce each year, supplying 80% of the restaurant’s needs. Quality, authenticity and nature are the key values for this prolific garden: seedlings and seeds are organic, and crops grown without treatment. Particular attention was paid to the choice of plants: heritage tomatoes, Florence aubergines, about thirty different varieties of aromatic herbs, edible flowers, Jerusalem artichokes, artichokes, butternut squash, raspberries and melons, among others, depending on the season. They are close to the fruit orchard: figs, apples, peaches, apricots, and cherries complete this Garden of Eden.
