Exquisite property: this restored mill is located in the picturesque hinterland of Nice whilst being some 35 minutes from the Riviera’s beaches and from the International Airport. Subjected to a sensitive and thorough renovation, the Bastide offers some 540 sqm of accommodation which was completely reconstructed in 2010.

Restored with a careful eye for detail, each of the 7 bedrooms is themed to a different destination with original furniture and featuring creations commissioned and tailored by artists and artisans.

Within the property you will also find a wrought iron wheel which had been replaced in 2010, and which now offers a feature between the kitchen and living room.

Each item of furniture or decoration is a collector’s item.

Constructed with natural rocks from the region, the house spans four floors which are connected by a lift. Amongst the estate you will also find various buildings such as ruin dating back to Roman times and which has been more recently restored and furnished.

The site features a natural spring that traverses the living room via the mill, then nourishes the garden. The water, flowing from the cliff next to the villa, meanders through the property, believed by locals to possess healing properties. The Mill was a pilgrimage site : a sanctuary for treating chronic ailments.

Situated in a medieval village, this unassuming, charming locale remains authentically untouched by excessive tourism. One can Immerse oneself in a serene, nature-rich environment that transports you back in time.

The property’s appeal is further enhanced by an infinity pool, a fitness studio (67 sqm) with panoramic hill views, a tennis court, and a wine cellar.

Hundreds of perfectly maintained olive trees produce excellent oil. A pond is home to Koi carp.

Grace Kelly, the Princess of Monaco, came several times to this property, just 45 minutes from Monaco.
