Although born in Nîmes, Alphonse Daudet was successful and spent most of his career in Paris. However, he lived in Fontvieille for some time to work on a new book and came to the mill to find inspiration.
The show “Les lettres de mon moulin” presents an Alphonse Daudet who has just arrived in Provence and meets young Provencal girls. As he meets them, Alphonse Daudet will find inspiration in the stories he is told to write his Letters from my Windmill.
Since the creation of the park, the Rocher Mistral has honoured Provençal culture in all its facets: music, dance, costume, cuisine, language…
