Property description

You will never experience anything like our mill anywhere else, steeped in the country side but just 1 hour from Nice airport, on the river, totally private, just get back to nature and shed the weight of work, ill health, stress, problems just seem so far away in our corner of heaven. Listen to the birds, paddle in the brooke that forms in the garden on its way down to the river, swim in the pool and just chill.
Children just love it, teenagers love it and parents love it, bonding with the whole family is just natural
Imagine long, lazy summer days lounging by the pool, splashing in the river, sitting under the shade of the weeping willow keeping cool with your feet in the babbling brook that flows through the garden reading your favourite book, sipping a glass of local red wine or an ice cold prosecco. The children running free searching for frogs, fishing for little river fish and seeing who is the first in the pool every day. Finish the day with a bbq and a walk into the village for an ice-cream or to listen to the local band playing or even join the locals at the village dance. You will not experience anything like it anywhere else. The old mill can be found a few hundred metres along a country lane, steeped in the countryside yet 15 minute walk from the village or 5 minutes by car. Silent and peaceful set in its own gardens surrounded by trees and the sound of the brook gently babbling by providing the mill with it's own private rock pools big enough for bathing. The river also feed the swimming pool at the mill free flowing in and out, no products are used in our natural pool.
You can buy an internet key for your laptop if you need to keep in touch.
There is a large private garden.
We have a proper pizza oven and gas BBQ.
The mill has various terraces with seating arrangements for quiet reading or an alfresco aperitif overlooking the river before lunch or dinner in the garden or by the river or even around the pool, the choice is yours.
There are loungers around the pool and also by the river for a change of venue if necessary.
The living room has a huge open fire for autumn or winter evenings and
the living room has a comfortable sofa bed for extra guest

Perfect wedding venue.

Pigna is a medieval village steeped in countryside with small rivers and rock pools, hiking tracks and trekking trails, cycle paths and some of the most beautiful nature trails changing with the seasons. Pigna is strategically placed 1 hour from Nice international airport, 1 hour from Monte Carlo and 3 hours from Milan.

The famous Italian Riviera is just 20 minutes away and you can choose between the stony beaches of Bordighera and Ventimiglia or the sandy beaches of Sanremo and Ospedaletti.

Pigna boasts the famous church of St Michele, full of the paintings of Canavesio from the 15th century including the priceless politico which hangs behind the alter.

The chapel of San Bernado's frescos depicting biblical scenes by Canavesio, have been painstakingly restored over a 10 year period.

The mountain of Torraggion dominated the village and can be reached by a 5 hour hike from the 'refugio Allavena' in the Melosa area just 20 mins from the village by car or 2 hours by foot

Other Activities: MONACO GRAND PRIX just 1 hour away
