Grace Kelly's villa in Nice, a former olive oil mill, is for sale

Grace Kelly's villa, a former olive oil mill, is currently for sale in Nice. This sumptuous property was a real coup de coeur for the princess, who described it as a "haven of peace". Sotheby's International Realty offers this prestigious villa. Located in the village of La Gilette, this historic property was once an olive oil and flour mill. After careful renovation, it now offers luxury and beauty in the heart of the village. Les Moulins du Villars", as it is known, is closely linked to Grace Kelly. Numerous objects donated by the princess can still be found in the villa.

This exceptional residence is offered for sale at a price of 11.5 million euros. The history of this villa dates back to 1980, when the Princess of Monaco visited the Villars mills with her daughter. She immediately fell in love with the estate and befriended the owners. Grace Kelly returned several times alone on vacation to this special residence, which she considered a true haven of peace. She even donated two statues that still adorn the villa. Grace Kelly's villa is nestled in the heart of a nature reserve between Nice and Monaco, offering enchanting Côte d'Azur scenery. The "Moulins du Villars" extend over 2.1 hectares in the shape of an amphitheatre, facing due south. The property is surrounded by small streams and offers exceptional views of the surrounding countryside. Olive, citrus and cypress trees perfume the air and surround the villa. Perched at the top of the hill, Grace Kelly's residence offers 16 terraces with breathtaking views at an altitude of 470 meters. The villa's water supply comes from La Source du Villars, a spring located next to the cliff.

Grace Kelly's villa has undergone several grandiose renovations since the 1990s. The walls were completely rebuilt by stonemasons to restore the stream channels. Recently, the house has been restored, furnished and decorated by prestigious Cap Ferrat architects. Antique mill artefacts are on display inside and outside the property. The main villa extends over 540 square meters spread over 4 floors linked by an elevator. It includes two living rooms, two kitchens, a wine cellar, seven bedrooms, private bathrooms, an office, a cinema room and a laundry room. In addition, the property has fully equipped annexes, a party room, a gym, an infinity pool and even a helicopter landing pad. This is a luxury residence that is sure to attract buyers interested in prestigious accommodation.

Currently offered for sale by Nice Sotheby's International Realty, this prestigious property, where the Princess once stayed, is considered a haven of peace. Located in the village of La Gilette, this residence offers exceptional views of the surrounding countryside and is surrounded by olive, citrus and cypress trees. With its grandiose renovations, this luxury villa offers spacious and comfortable living space, with numerous amenities. It represents a unique opportunity for buyers interested in a prestigious home in the Nice region.
