Spend some time in an authentic watermill from 1832.
The last miller left the mill in 1959. When Florence and Philippe bought it in 2019 it had been left untouched for 60 years.
Volunteers and local craftsmen are currently renovating the mill .
This ecogîte will open in the summer of 2022.
The plan is to be able to host groups up to 15 people and to offer your the following services:
In the gîte of 450 m2 we can welcome teams up to 15 people. Your team will be embraced by the green and organic surrounding. One modern meeting room and lounge areas both inside as outside next to the pool will be used for your most creative sessions.
The mill has 4 floors with in the basement a bar and small brewery, on the ground floor you can find the dining room and kitchen, first floor is the lounge area and on the top floor there is a big open space for the kids to play.
In total over 450 m2 of space with an organic garden spread over 3000m2 composed of a natural pool and the island with its organic vegetable garden.
