Vallée des Moulins

Just 5 minutes drive away from Fabre is the start of a great little walk up the Vallée des Moulins. You follow a track for a kilometer then as the valley closes in, a narrow path alongside a little stream that climbs up passing decaying remnants of four old water mills, once part of a thriving flour milling industry of the previous centuries.vallée des moulinscool under the shade

This is a great choice for a walk in very hot weather as most of the two to three hour circuit lies in shade, the mill valley part in deep, deep shade. After climbing up out of the valley, there is a short section on the lanes through the hamlet of Rouseyrolles, then down a forested track back to the parked car.
