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.
