    We have taken over a beautiful old Mill on the edge of a national park. It is in a magical position of calm but only 2 km from Valbonne and 20 minutes form Nice airport... the sea is 12Km away!
    very interested in anyone that knows about gardening / carpentry / kitchen fitting / painting / electrics / plumbing / tiling / forestry / landscaping / pool building etc.

    Also have an 1952 BMW to restore if you know anything about cars!!!
    A fun international atmosphere.
