About the property

Converted ancient olive watermill in Callas, Cote D'Azur, Provence - Secluded Yet Unremote House With Five En-Suite Bedrooms, 10 Minutes Walk To Village

Moulin Niras is a 17th century olive oil mill which has been meticulously renovated and extended by renowned local architect, using local stone, terracotta and wood. It has been featured in the Daily Mail and Country Life magazine. The house is set in three acres of secluded gardens. Beyond, vineyards and protected woods create a peaceful and private setting, but the house is only a ten minute walk from the centre of the village of Callas. Five good-sized bedrooms, all with new en-suite bathrooms, accommodate ten guests plus an additional two children in comfort and privacy; each bedroom overlooks the gardens surrounding the house and has private outside access and sitting areas. The kitchen ably caters for large groups and includes a La Canche double-oven stove. Wireless internet access is available throughout the house and pool area plus there is a games room in the cave with table football and a TV/DVD player.
