Welcome to The Moulin de la Viste

Enjoy a restful vacation in romantic Provence in a 300-year old stone mill with a secluded salt-water swimming pool for totally private bathing. Moulin de la Viste is a 18th century Provençal olive mill on a hillside along a babbling brook. Built in 1776, it is al old as the United States of America. The property is fully fenced, faces south and is surrounded by wooded hills, olive groves and vineyards.

The house is fully equipped for year-round living. There is central heating, satellite TV, wifi high-speed Internet access, a stereo and a washing machine. The kitchen has a dishwasher, an ice-box-freezer, a convection-microwave oven and direct access to the patio.

Linen and weekly cleaning is included in the rental price.

Thick stone walls keep it pleasantly cool even during summer heat. In the living room the ceiling is up to 6 meters high!

All rooms are very light, airy, with high beamed ceilings, arranged around a patio which still contains the original mill stones and fixtures. The furniture is attractive and simple, in keeping with the ancient walls.

The master bedroom, opening on to the patio, has a double bed. Its bathroom has a Jacuzzi bathtub and a heated towel rack. The second bedroom is on the first floor and has two twin beds that can be pushed together to make one kind-size bed. It has its own shower room and a separate toilet on the floor below.

A tree-shaded terrace above the Riou de Claviers has two Weber barbecues and is furnished for eating outdoors.

This is Provence that has managed to remain more or less true to itself and is well worth a trip. Claviers is an unspoiled village which has not been tarted up, yet. It has a 12 century chapel, many medieval houses, picturesque lanes and friendly villagers. We have a café, two restaurants, a baker, a small grocery and a tourism office.

There are many wonderful walks in and around Claviers and right outside the Moulin de la Viste. A car is necessary to get around although the village can be reached by a steep uphill path in about 1/2 hour.
