Vence villa description

This beautiful old Provencal mill dates back to the XIVth century and served as the main olive mill for the region. Set in the Lubiane valley, under the walls of the Medieval town of Vence with a stunning park land garden bordering the Lubiane stream.
Although the Mill has been transformed into a luxurious home, it still has all the original wheels, mill stones and workings.
This extremely spacious home has been beautifully restored and furnished tastefully, the sound of water is heard from most rooms. Perfect property for 3 to 4 families.
The large shady patio with its original barbecue and huge stone table (seats 16) under a wrought-iron pergola is a perfect setting for entertaining.
A large heated (if required) pool offers total privacy and chaises-longues where guests can relax in areas of full sunshine or in the shade of the palm trees.

                                  Vence is a beautiful market town with a XIIth century medieval historical centre. Conveniently nestled in the foothills of the Alps, just 15 minutes drive to the busy coastline, it allows its visitors to be close to the beaches and animation of the Cote d'Azur whilst enjoying a wonderful tranquility and renowned air quality.

                                  Like its world famous sister-village, St Paul-de-Vence located just within a 5 minutes drive, Vence is famous for being the hometown of some of the most well-known artists of all times such as Matisse, Chagall; Dufy; etc. and remains a vibrant artistic and cultural place with many art galleries, music and traditional festivals.

                                  It also will delight Nature-lovers with great hiking in the 'Baous' (the hills over-looking the town).

                                  End your days with an aperitif on one of the many café terraces and dine in some of the best restaurants of the region.

                                  Vence is sure to charm you and have you returning year after year.
