The old mill has two large bedrooms, one with a double bed and windows over the river and a door to the outside terrace, both bedrooms have an ipod stand to bring yor music. The second bedroom has two single beds and a window overlooking the waterfall made by the rivulet. Terracotta floors upstairs. Shower room next to the bedooms. Lovely terrace solarium outside the bedrooms overlooking the waterfall with a swimming pool, this is totally ecological, the pool is fed from the river and flows back into the river just like when it was a working mill, however the water is filtered so nice and clean but no nasty chlorine or salt, full description below.

Lovely terrace solarium outside the bedrooms overlooking the waterfall with a swimming pool, this is totally ecological, the pool is fed from the river and flows back into the river just like when it was a working mill, however the water is filtered so nice and clean but no nasty chlorine or salt, full description below. The living room has a stone floor and all the machinery for pressing olives and making olive oil. Huge fireplace for burning logs in the winter. Kitchen off the living room with an old stone sink. Tv with sound system for dvd's and ipod/iphone and a jack for an mp3 player. N terrestrial or staellite TV. The garden area has a large terrace perfect for outdoor dining and BBQing. The garden boasts its own rock pool formed from the rivulet flowing down the side of the property and on to the main rivulet, this rock pool is shallow and great for children, under supervision always. The swimming pool is fed from the river, it is the original stone tank that was used to collect the overflow of the olive oil from the freshly pressed olives, and this olive oil was payment for the mill owner for pressing the villagers olives, he would then skim this oil off the top of the water and sell it. There is also private bathing in the rivulet and a rock pool in the garden for paddling and keeping cool. This is a wonderful holiday opportunity to get back to basics and have a real family holiday, long walks in the country, horse riding, biking and just relaxing, no internet and a tv just for DVDs if you wish to bring films or CDs, you will find a selection at the mill. Alternatively you could spend the the day at the beach and then relax in the evening back in the mill and back in time. Ideal for a wedding in Italy, romantic and isolated enough to have the best wedding reception ever. This could be catered for as well if required. If you would like a private chef for your stay or for a few meals this can be arranged also if you require daily maid service this can be arranged as well. We are just one hour from Monaco so why not stay at the mill and visit the Monaco Grand Prix for an exciting once in a lifetime experience.More

After a 2 day drive we were greeted by the beauty of The Old Mill. What better way to unwind and forget about the outside world. We were enveloped in the calm and relaxation of the beautiful surroundings of this property. If you want to...More

Who knew one could vacation and come home feeling relaxed and rested? The Old Olive Mill is perfect for exactly that. Words won't give justice to the setting, but simply put: it's a small stone castle tucked away up a quiet lane and perched on...More

The lane the mill is on follows the river a few kilometres and it is a lovely walk with plenty of opportunities for bathing along the way, it is a paradise for children who can explore to their hearts content. There is horse riding close by too. There is a large garden and a private path down to the river, where the crystal clear cold water flows from the mountains down to the sea and is so refreshing, completely stress free all you need for a perfect family holiday or a romantic holiday or even a few friends getting together. The villages around have dances all summer long and provide entertainment of a vast range for all the family and of course we are so close to the sea, even though I can assure you after a hot day at the beach the mill will seem like paradise found on your return. Stock up the car from one of the supermarkets in Ventimiglia or Camporosso on your way down, look out for BILLA, LIDL, CONAD or Maxisconto - when you turn left after Ventimiglia up the valley on the left hand side over the river you will see a small industrial estate at the first roundabout go right over the bridge and right after the second roundabout to maxi Sconto (more choice than LIDL that you will see first) and just enjoy. You will find a mobile phone in the mill with an Italian sim card for your use, incase you need to contact us or book local restaurants, this is just for local calls. Small food shops are usually closed Wednesday afternoons but the bigger supermarkets are all open even on Sundays. Bread is bought from shops called PANETTERIA and most small grocery shops have bread. The property has been renovated and redecorated.
