Built just before the French Revolution, this rare and exquisite silk-worm farm has been recently renovated to the highest English/American standards. The Bastide was particularly well placed in the valley surrounded by vines and the Maures mountains.
This three-story bastide provides large and luminous rooms, but still retains its original charm and character. The large stone house consists of 6 bedrooms (including a superb master suite of 35 m2 with exposed stone walls, beams and a vaulted ceiling), a lounge with beams & a fireplace, a dining room, office, separate chef’s kitchen with custom gas/electric & wood burning Godin stove and 3 bathrooms. The garden is well landscaped with a good sized pool, several covered terraces and a bespoke BBQ.
Old mulberry trees remind us of the silkworm production era and the old olive trees provide more then enough fruit to mill into quality olive oil at the local mill. The property claims three rare features that nod to the status of this unusual property: an ancient stone threshing floor, a pigeonnier (pigeon house or dovecote) in the garden, and a 3rd story built for the production of silk.
