Legendary Film Directors Luxury Cannes Villa For Rent

Sir David Lean was responsible for some of the greatest epics ever made. The Bridge on the River Kwai, Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, Ryan’s Daughter, and A Passage to India – seriously impressive.

Just as impressive is the Moulin du Jardinier, the late directors French retreat, situated just 20 minutes from Cannes.


Clearly, Sir David was a perfectionist and it shows with this luxury French villa.

The converted mill is set in seven acres of mature landscaped gardens in the hills of Mouans Sartoux, providing easy access to South of France`s best bits.

Moulin du Jardinier sleeps 9 and even has a pool house, complete with a full kitchen, a barbecue and dining area.

The pool? Somewhere for complete relaxation, surrounded by flowers and foliage, lending to the privacy of the whole property. It is, of course, heated and decorated with green mosaic tiles.


Interiors are superb. A mix of tradition and Danish influence work really well together. The rooms for entertaining open out on to sun terraces, simply perfect.

The master bedroom suite is very private, separated from the main house by a conservatory and has French doors leading onto its own terrace and water garden.

This could be Sir David Lean`s last epic. A final gift for us all to enjoy.

If you are looking for a Cannes luxury property, a week at the Moulin du Jardinier with SJ Villas costs from £1,177 per person, based on nine people sharing, including maid service.
