About us

«Le Moulin du Rivet » was opened in April 1999. Since then guests have been warmly welcomed here in the peaceful Quint valley situated in the southern portion of the Vercors national park. Our former watermill had for more than 100 years produced wheat, rye flour and walnut oil. Farmers came from far and wide with heavy laden donkeys and wagons, full of grain and nuts to use the mill. Whilst the miller did his work, the visitors enjoyed a meal and a roof over their heads at the mill. We like to continue this tradition, as good food and a sound nights sleep are key to our philosophy. A relaxed and peaceful place with room to breath fresh air and plenty of outdoor activities..... what more do you want! We do our best to meet your needs.
