Converted old mill house in the South of France

Moulin du Jardinier is a converted old mill house nestled in over 7 acres of beautifully mature, landscaped gardens in the hills at Mouans Sartoux in the South of France. From the house and gardens there are open views over the valley below. This 15th century stone-built house was originally owned by director Sir David Lean. The house and gardens with all of their magical charm was purchased from Sir David’s widow by a young Danish couple who also fell under its spell.

The furnishings throughout the house are a blend of the original dramatic, tempered with an elegant Scandinavian simplicity. Rich fabrics and beautifully executed paint effect finishes, including several entrancing murals, all create a colorful setting for the Provencal antique furniture. The house features two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a single bedroom with bathroom and the completely independent master bedroom suite which has two en-suite bathrooms. Up a spiral staircase from the conservatory, there is a further twin bedroom with en suite bathroom.

The huge vaulted drawing room and dining room are perfect for entertaining and open directly onto the terraces offering lovely views and one of several outdoor dining areas. The private master bedroom suite is separated from the house by a conservatory, with French doors opening onto its own terrace and water garden. The large pool with green mosaic tiles nestles underneath one of the many flower terraces. At one end, the elegant pool house there is everything from BBQ and fridge to hand-made wrought iron dining table and chairs.

Prices for the rental villa ranges from $15,700-$31,400 per week, from here.
