Description

An old converted watermill, Moulin Niras has five spacious en suite double bedrooms, plus an additional children's bedroom. The mill has been sympathetically renovated and extended using local craftsmen and materials, creating a peaceful haven with modern comforts and lots of South of France charm. It sits in the middle of three acres of secluded and mature gardens, surrounded by farmland and woods, and yet is only a ten minute walk to the village of Callas. The superb pool area has plenty of lounging areas, including around an outdoor fireplace, plus good facilities for outside dining.

Callas, featured in the June issue of Conde Nast's Traveller magazine, is just half an hour from the Bay of St Tropez and with Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Aix-en-Provence and the Gorges du Verdon all within an hour's reach. It is well-served by the best butcher and wine shop in the area, plus has all the village traditionals including bakery, general store, cafe and post office

Location description from owner

The Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region

- Referred to by Conde Nast Traveller magazine as 'the real Provence', the Var is one of 'best finds' in the South of France with a range of attractions from quiet villages, to rural hiking areas across forests and gorges, to hip beach areas, to vineyards to sports facilities.
- Callas is one of a series of hilltop villages in the area, about half an hour to the coast and an hour from city attractions such as Nice and Aix-en-Provence with its Roman history and walking streets, and the impressive Gorges du Verdon (Europe's 'Grand Canyon') with its great scenery and hiking possibilities
- The climate is sunny and dry from spring to autumn, with mild winters, often with very little rain. Daytime temperatures in summer are hot, but evenings' balmy and comfortable, meaning air conditioning is not needed.

Callas

Callas is rooted in medieval times and today is a charming Var village with tall townhouses and narrow winding streets. It features all the village shop essentials including general store, post office, cafe/bar and bakery, plus has probably the best butcher and wine shop in the area. It also has a handful of restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Gorges du Pennafort, plus a weekly Saturday market in the village square ('visit any market in the Var...you'll find an overwhelming passion for food' - Conde Nast Traveller, June 2007), and the best olive-oil producer (producting 'olive oils with extraordinary variety and subtlety' - Conde Nast Traveller, June 2007).

The efficient tourist information office has details on the area's many activities, from sports (tennis, biking, canoeing, horse riding etc) to attractions such as music events, festivals, vineyards, and perfume-making at nearby Grasse
