Bourg-en-Bresse is the nearest town. It has sixth form colleges, a conservatoire, all shops and amenities. On its outskirts is Brou Royal Monastery, originally built as a burial place for members of the House of Savoy, one of Europe’s most prestigious families. The mill is also 90 km to the north of Lyon by road or 2⅓ hours from Paris by TGV.
It is in the Bresse region but at the bottom of the Revermont foothills of the Jura mountains, along the river Solnan and a country lane, on the outskirts of a hamlet with a few inhabitants, near to the village. The surroundings are rural and pastoral, the country lane little used and the tranquillity of the premises is disturbed but by the sound of a few trains. Local Bresse produce, such as chickens, capons and pike, play an essential part in French gastronomy: one of the great French restaurants, belonging to Georges-Blanc, is to be found in Vonnas.
Courtesy of its meticulous renovation works, this mill has not been greatly altered. Although an irreproachable level of home comforts has been installed, its original features have been cleverly enhanced.
The living space comprises a kitchen, a living room, two bedrooms, with their bathrooms, as well as a ground floor toilet and shower room meeting current day standards for disabled persons. It is used as a holiday rental accommodation unit or for bed & breakfast purposes. A back garden and a terrace are independent.
The rest of the building includes an old bread oven, which is still used for cooking savoury pancakes as well as pizzas, and the stables, further on, house sheep and hens.
The meadows nestle between the river and the lane, bordered by tall, old oak trees that do not conceal the view of the Revermont hills. They are currently used for grazing sheep and for accommodating horses whose riders are stopping at the mill.
The mill’s old mechanisms and cogwheels with its hopper, grindstones and toothed wheel have been beautifully enhanced, even in the bedrooms. The in-depth renovation works have, therefore, made the most of the site’s long history. Yet another reason for a bed & breakfast activity in an old French province, with a fascinating history and the best products of French gastronomy such that its very name is enough to make the mouth water. Obviously favoured, the region is also central to Europe and features extremely practical communication routes.
