Full Description: A perfectly restored 18th century Olive Mill which now mills experiences to extract the good life. What a wonderful home this is! From the way in down a lane running past a waterfall, to the sunsets over the mountains ahead, this place has been built to bring pleasure. Now to detail. The context is ideal - a four minute walk to the village (covering all usual daily needs) and 20 minutes from the sea. A stream runs through the property and there is a 180º panorama of the most wonderful forested mountains and plantations. The climate-subtropical. Into the Millyard with granite stone tables, fountain, pool and store. Catch the view! Turn onto the covered terrace and through double doors into the vast open plan ground floor. Complete with Cast Iron press and other vestiges of the working Mill, this room feels great ! Big open fireplace, multi-levels, timbered ceiling, excellent twinkling kitchen. Pause. Have a glass of wine, check out the big utility rooms, peer into the TV and chill room, and up the railway sleeper stairs to the mezzanine. You rise, peace descends. A good study space. Onto the terrace - that view again! - and so to bathing from the long journey in one of three bathrooms and perhaps I should leave you to a siesta - take your pick from the four bedrooms. You will be called when the pool BBQ is lit and a bottle has been retrieved from the storeroom. Have a rest as after dinner we are picking oranges and lemons from our orchard.
POSSIBLE FUTURE USES: Either to carry on having a wonderful time in a wonderful house OR to add the property next door (which is for sale) and open a really good small Inn
