General Description

WELCOME TO 7 PLACE ST. PIERRE

This lovely old stone medieval house was once one of the olive mills in the village where olives were pressed, silk worms working their magic on the higher floors and outside you will see the rings where donkeys were tethered delivering each load of olives for pressing.  Lovingly restored by Sarah & David we are sure you will enjoy this ancient house.

Place St. Pierre is located in the village of Callas below the ruined Castle walls in a quiet square and just a short 5 minute walk to the village. 

If you are looking for somewhere special to embrace French village life then this is it!  Beautiful Provencal villages, St. Tropez and beaches 50 minutes away, a wealth of amazing vineyards on your doorstep, local Provençal markets, golf, watersports, superb cycling terrain and the fabulous Gorge du Verdon – all nearby.
