This property stands in the centre of a little town constructed on a rocky spur in the Green Beaujolais area. As of the 16th century, this town was a large market place for exchanging flax and hemp. It then developed during the booming textile industry up until the middle of the 19th century. Rich industrialists had mansion hotels built, rivalling their architectural features and giving this small market town a middle-class image. Following the decline of the textile industry, the region turned towards tourism. The Lac-des-Sapins (fir-tree lake) is just a stone’s throw away. The biggest artificial lake in Europe, it receives more than 200,000 visitors per year and offers numerous leisure activities such as swimming, sailing and horse riding as well as hiking and mountain bike trails. About 20 minutes from Roanne and 35 minutes from Villefranche-sur-Saône. Lyon and its TGV train station are an hour away. Amplepuis station provides direct train links to Lyon several times per day.
The mansion house
This mansion house, spanning four stories, has features reminiscent of Anglo-Norman villas. A bow window and triple windows adorn the south-facing facade which dominates the town and the garden. The rendered facades include multi-coloured and wooden features. Under the projecting roof, a painted string course represents oak, plane, horse chestnut, olive and laurel branches. In ochre and red outlines, leaves and golden yellow fruit contrast with a bright blue background. This decor is not related to the ceramic features that adorn the facades.
The aviary and the parklands
A landscaped garden surrounds this house. It forms the sort of picturesque, wild and exotic setting that was very much in fashion at the beginning of the 20th century. It features a waterfall, enhancing an ornamental pool, as well as an aviary, made elegant by multi-coloured glazed bricks, the transparency of the glass and a Japanese-style roof. This aviary stands near to the entrance, in a corner of the garden. Its framework is constructed from wrought iron designed by F.D.Pompey, the famous factory that was directly involved in the construction of Eiffel Tower. This garden is also planted with numerous species such as Japanese maple and pine trees as well as azalea and old rose bushes.
This mansion house, bearing rare witness to the Art Nouveau style in the region, still has many authentic features. Creating the unity of art and life was the stated objective of this artistic movement. Inventiveness, colours, ornamentation inspired by nature introduced fantasy and sensitivity into everyday life. The atmosphere exuded by this building, both inside and out, brings colour to life! The initial objective was, therefore, achieved here. Exploring every nook and cranny of the landscaped garden, daydreaming in the aviary or climbing the hillsides around Lyon guarantees a pastoral and pleasant change of scenery that would ideally suit all the members of a large, thriving family who would have all the space they require in this building. The immediate proximity of a region with a very good tourist trade evokes the possibility of starting a hotel and catering, bed & breakfast or seminar activity.
