I have always been a huge fan of Disney. So it should come as no surprise to me that at 30 years old I still choose to watch disney films in my spare time. I am not ashamed to admit it. I love a fairytale. So lucky for me, I got engaged in the most fairytale hotel on the planet, and I don’t think any other luxury hotel can ever compare.
In the summer of 2015, Lee and I had planned a return trip to France. This time focusing on the South of France. We were to attend a wedding in Bordeaux and then travel across to Lyon while stopping off and visiting areas along the way. One of our stop offs was in Champagnac-de-Belair, Dordogne, and it would end up being one of the most important moments of my life.
Le Moulin du Roc : Luxury Fairytale Hotel
I didn’t know much about where we were going. I had seen a quick photo of the hotel Lee had booked and thought it was nice. However nothing prepared me for just how nice it was.
When you arrive at the hotel, The exterior doesn’t give much away. The beautiful grounds are well hidden from the outside. It is only once you step inside and are escorted to your room that you are made aware of its magical atmosphere.
Fine Dining & Infinity Pool
Private Tennis Courts, Infinity Pool and A Michelin Star Restaurant, it was a perfect getaway for our 1 night stay. We explored the gardens and grounds, laid by the pool and enjoyed a 3 course Michelin Star Menu. I was 6 weeks pregnant at this point and was gutted to not be able to enjoy the wine and cheeses of France at this Luxury Restaurant. However the staff were very accommodating and made me a non alcoholic cocktail and helped me choose the best dishes on the menu. ( for all you Mauvaises langues, Lee had already asked my stepdad for my hand in Australia months before and he had planned this trip before I was pregnant)
After our amazing meal on the terrace next to the lake, we went up to our hotel room. I jumped straight into my pyjamas as soon as I got to the room. Only to have Lee tell me to get dressed again. He wanted to sit and take photos on the balcony. The real reason of course was that he was going to propose. So me sitting in my grandma pyjamas would have taken the magic away just a bit! Oops!
The next day we had a beautiful romantic breakfast on the terrace before setting off to Lyon. We were buzzing from our big news and couldn’t wait to tell all of friends and family!
If you are looking to feel like you are part of a Disney film. Then Moulin Du Roc is definitely the place for you. It is hands down the best hotel we have ever stayed in. To book the hotel and read all the amazing reviewvisit Le Moulin Du ROC.
