About The Olive Mill
Nestling within a cocoon of silver olive trees you will find one of the most impressive villas in Provence. The Olive Mill is perfect for a family seeking a peaceful retreat in a tranquil setting that offers stunning views of Les Alpilles.
The seven-bedroom villa, which dates back to the 17th century, has been lovingly restored by the art-collecting owners to create a rustic yet luxurious home-from-home. The scent of olives and pine lingers in the air of the eight-hectare Mediterranean garden. Two swimming pools and a home cinema/yoga room have been ingeniously woven into the building.
Traces of the former olive press are evident in the contemporary kitchen, with a vaulted ceiling opening out through a large sliding door to a raised pool and seating area, perfect for breakfasts. Or as the day unfolds, relax under the shade of the pergola to the sound of cicadas before taking a cooling dip in the 25-metre pool with the scent of lavender, thyme and rosemary prevailing in the air.
Each en-suite bedroom has been decorated with a natural colour palette and has panoramic views of the mountains and olive groves beyond . Unique touches include a Louis XV door that opens onto the main bedroom and a collection of beautifully illuminated artworks.
Despite its rural location, The Olive Mill is only a short drive away from Maussane Les Alpilles and the beautiful villages of Baux-de-Provence and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.
