At the end of a beautiful driveway bordered by trees, this stunning 13th Century former water mill sits in 4.5ha of parkland on the outskirts of a pretty village with all amenities within walking distance. It is conveniently located in easy reach of two international airports and the long, white sandy Mediterranean beaches. The mill has been extended over the centuries and recently renovated to a very high standard. The old water mill dates back to the 13th century, and straddles the stream which still flows underneath the house today. With many original features preserved, including beautiful stone florrs, marble fireplaces, solid oak doors, terracotta or parquet floors and exposed stone walls and beams, this property has much charm and character.
The property includes an independent 3 bedroom apartment and the main dewilling with beautiful reception rooms offers 6 en-suite bedrooms and a large terrace overlooking the river. A unique property!
