Wonderful old farm house with great pool
We were a group of three families of four who stayed in July. There were six children aged 6-14. We had a great time staying in this really character filled old farm house. There was plenty of space which allowed for quiet time away from others when desired. The kitchen is enormous and well equipped. The pool is big and the kids loved playing in it.
It was very hot in Provence during our stay - the kitchen and old part of the house were cooler than the newer section, but there are fans in all the rooms to make sleeping more comfortable.
The housekeeper, Houria, came a couple of hours each day to tidy up and clean the kitchen. She also babysat one night so we could have an adults dinner out. Houria is delightful but doesn't speak a lot of English.
One thing to note - the house is about 3km out of Pelissanne. We had contemplated hiring bikes, but glad we didn’t as the road into town is very narrow, so we wouldn’t have wanted to ride on it. The town has a fantastic providore store and good bakery and supermarket
We had a lovely very time with our party if 16 friends. It was a very roomy comfortable house with a well appointed kitchen. Outside dinners around the table worked well and the pool was fabulous. Lots to see and do nearby.
Tranquil and Beautiful
I rented the moulin with family and friends for a week to celebrate my 50th birthday and it did not disappoint! We were 10 adults and 5 children who range in age from 10-52 and my primary concern for planning the trip had been to find accommodations that could provide both privacy and comfortable togetherness. This place did that wonderfully. The kids were never under foot, but always busy exploring the grounds, swimming in the pool, etc...and the adults (4 married couples and 2 singles traveling together) especially enjoyed cooking and gathering in the kitchen and sitting in the outdoor dining and pool areas to share our stories of the day, listen to music and drink the fabulous and very affordable local wines. All of the beds were very comfortable and the people we met, from Houria who cares for the house to the vendors at the Sunday market in Pélisanne, were warm and welcoming. There were a couple of items that needed maintenance, a burner on the stove, a missing clothes dryer, but none of us felt that even these things diminished our enjoyment of this beautiful and tranquil place. I would love the opportunity to go back in the future!
Beautiful villa! Seven of us spent a glorious week in this truly remarkable villa. The grounds are amazing with a beautiful pool, outdoor seating (where we spent our evenings eating and drinking French wine!) and lavender fields. Step inside and you’re transcended to a perfect balance of an authentic French villa tastefully updated to provide modern day comforts (top notch appliances and plumbing). The villa is incredibly spacious with a large, well-equipped, modern kitchen and seating area, a beautiful winding stone stairway, spacious bedrooms, a cozy sitting area and large, beautiful windows that provide wonderful light and great views of the property. The pictures truly don’t do this villa justice and it exceeded all of our expectations. Houria, the housekeeper, was gracious and hospitable and stopped by everyday to do light cleaning.
We used this location as our base and traveled to many towns, all within an 1-1.5 hour drive, including St. Remy, Cassis, Avignon, Aix, Bonnieux, LaCoste, Pont du Gard and Lourmarin. Pelissanne is a short 10 minute drive with a grocery and local restaurants.
The owner was very responsive and provided a very helpful package of information about the surrounding areas, including local markets and restaurants. This villa will not disappoint and all of us highly recommend a stay.
We were a group of 13 folks renting this place ranging in age from seven weeks to seventy.We had a great stay. The villa is really lovely and private. It sits in a very beautiful location. The inside is just perfect in every way, but we spent most of our time outside, either at the pool or the lovely table under the lights at night.
We enjoyed the big, well outfitted kitchen which we cooked in almost every night. Great stove and just about everything you could ask for. The property has two big fridges - perfect for a lot of beer and wine storage!
The price of the rental includes a housekeeper for two hours a day. She was lovely and really did a great job in the kitchen and common areas.
Great food shopping at the local markets and the local Le Clerc, up the road.
We would definitely stay here again!
We were twelve people-- all one family. We had six children from six years old to 16 and six adults-- the oldest was me at eighty. We give the Olive Mill the highest recommendation. It is truly a remarkable facility with specious rooms, a fabulous kitchen an inside dinning room which seats at least 12. A beautiful tiled table for dinning outside which seats at least 12. It has the largest swimming pool I have seen in a private home with beautiful grounds. All was very clean with a very pleasant and competent maid who came every day. The location is fabulous with a very large store for food, wine, cheese and other items only twenty minutes away. We traveled all over Provence and came back every evening to swim and have great meals. The kids were delighted: We were enchanted. The mill also provides great privacy. You cannot see another building from the site. It also has a wonderful lavender field. It is even more magnificent than the photos. The owner was very helpful and responsive. Our only regret was that we had to leave after a week because of schedules.
