The Moulin de la Viste is an old water mill built in 1776 and tastefully restored, with beamed high ceilings and a central patio with original mill features. Airy, light and cool in summer. Thick stone walls. Simple and comfortable furniture. Good beds. Jacuzzi in main bath.
Fenced terraced garden facing south with mature trees, bushes and flowers, original mill troughs. No immediate neighbors, complete privacy in garden and salt-water pool, good for skinny-dipping. Shady terrace furnished for outdoor eating by the front door, right above a babbling brook. 2 Weber barbecues. Mill is outside an unspoiled village on a quiet lane amid olive trees and woods.
I am a retired conference interpreter, based in Geneva. The United Nations and many international organizations, my former employers, are based here as well.
Tamara Borowiec purchased this house in 1999
It was love at first sight. The Mill is ideally located with a shady terrace right on a lovely brook, well restored, simple but elegant and in good taste. There are no immediate neighbors but it is not isolated. At night, one can clearly see all the stars, a rare enough sight in our cities.
I like gardening and growing plants as well.
Perfect privacy and calm with a good-size garden.
This mill, built in 1776, is as old as the United States of America!!!
The village of Claviers is still unspoiled, unlike other Provencal villages which have been souped up with fancy boutiques and tourist attractions. People in Claviers know me and are friendly. It is 'my' village.
We’ve been fortunate to stay at Moulin de la Viste on two occasions – for a couple of weeks in September 2010 and for the month of August 2013.
It is a secluded little oasis located on a quiet road with a babbling brook at the doorstep. With the consistently beautiful blue sky overhead it is a perfect place to relax and read by the saltwater pool which is a good size for swimming and very private.
The house itself is uniquely designed with a center courtyard that welcomes light into every room. The thick stonewalls keep the house comfortably cool with no need for an air conditioner or fan – even in the high heat of summer.
The owner, Tamara, is quite friendly and a pleasure to deal with as are her lovely team that care for the house and grounds. Tamara even found us a local to tutor us in French lessons during our last stay!
Moulin de la Viste is a short drive to three villages where you can shop, visit the weekly markets, enjoy a café or glass of rosé and a nice meal.
We would definitely recommend the Moulin for a couple looking for a quiet getaway holiday!
This is not the usual cookie cutter vacation house, it's a beautiful old olive mill that has been converted into a very comfortable home with high ceilings, an enclosed patio like in a Roman villa, and a shaded terrace overlooking a river. The large garden has olive trees and lavender, rosemary, and other typical Provencal plants. There is also a pool that affords complete privacy.
The location is idyllic: tucked away at the bottom of a hill away from traffic but only a ten-minute drive from nearby villages Callas and Bargemon, or a fifteen-minute walk up the hill to Claviers village. It's extremely peaceful yet close to many attractions—a perfect base for day trips around the surrounding region.
The owner is extremely helpful and quick to answer any questions. We have recommended this house to friends and are planning to go back ourselves!
We're a family of 3 who spent a lovely two weeks at the mill in July/August 2009. A beautiful, historical treasure. Swimming and sunbathing in total privacy, grocery shops nearby. Large eat-in kitchen and salon for relaxing. Easy to take day trips by car to the neighboring villages in Var, as well as to St. Tropez, St. Maxime and Cap d'Antibes. Claviers is a beautiful city for walking. Owner very honest and responsive to needs of renters.
This old olive Mill is located on a small brook and surrounded by woods, olive groves, fields. The garden and pool are totally private. It is very peaceful and pretty. The Mill itself dates from 1776 and
was tastefully restored about 20 years ago. The garden has terraces, restanques in provençal, and is well planted with old Montpellier maple trees, flowering bushes and plants. There is always something blooming in any season. The entire property is fenced. Wildlife: boars, foxes, ducks, weasels, pheasants, etc. can come right up to the terrace in front of the house.
