Property description

A feast for the senses. This beautiful old villa was originally an olive oil mill dating back to 1718. The rambling stone house sits amongst acres of lavender and is surrounded by vineyards producing some of the regions best wines. The olive oil from the village is amongst the best in France and consistently wins the Paris Medaille d'Or. When the villa was reonovated in 2005 the owners were careful to keep the original character of the house but have tastefully decorated the interior making a really comfortable and stylish home.

There are a lot of places to sit and sip a glass of wine or or soak up the sun. Dine in rustic simplicity or wistful elegance with the help of a local chef we'd be pleased to recommend. The villa is spacious with large, cool rooms where the whole of the group can enjoy time together. We've had big parties and small weddings here and a whole lot of fun. There are also plenty of peaceful corners for quiet reflection or holiday reading. In the winter, open fires in the sitting and dining rooms make the Moulin a special place in which to celebrate the holiday season.

All the rooms have been carefully and tastefully decorated: (n.b some of the decor/furniture may differ to those in the photos)
Beautiful vaulted room, with handmade contemporary kitchen and granite work surface, central island with oak breakfast bar. All modern equipment including dishwasher, 5 burner stove, Magimix etc.

The Moulin was built as an olive oil mill for this region of Provence in the early 18th century. It still maintains 12 acres of land which, through the ages, have transferred productivity from olives to vines and now, organic lavender. There is plenty of room to kick a ball, run and explore. The land adjoining is naturally wild common land which is protected from any construction or habitation and ensures the privacy of the house. The land opposite and next to the Moulin is given to wine production. Around the house there is a garden, a small olive grove, a wooded area with pine trees and lots of wild land; plenty of space for exploration and outdoor activities.
