Description

THE COTTAGE (sleeps 4) nestles in the side of a south facing hill, opening east and west onto a grassy garden with mulberry and fig trees (east) and two walled, sunny courtyards with flowering shrubs and herbs (west). The Cottage was the original dwelling for the property, built in the seventeenth century; the main part of the olive mill (including the present Tower House), with its impressive presses (still in place) and walls 5 feet thick, was then added on to the southern wall of the Cottage in the eighteenth century. * The Ground Floor has a sitting room prettily furnished in Provençale style with exposed beams, Provençale furniture and satellite tv, cd & tape player. The adjoining dining room with open plan kitchen leads onto a small courtyard with barbeque, table and chairs. The dining room has a mix of antique Provençale and good quality modern furniture. The kitchen is very well equipped.

In the heart of a European-protected natural site (‘Natura2000’) with private river, several waterfalls and low cascades, very private restored olive mill dating from the Middle Ages provides accommodation for as few as 2 persons and as many as 16 in three completely independent and private dwellings, each with its own private, unshared pool.

Outstanding views and wildlife including two protected, endangered species.

A part of our river and our small waterfall of 10metres have also been classified by the French government as protected sites.

The land is free of all chemicals and has never been farmed intensively. The olive grove is also completely organic.
