The traditional, long farmhouse
The first guest house
This exposed stone house is topped with a tile roof. It is reached by going in front of the traditional long farmhouse and passing the entrance gates. Facing south-east like the farmhouse, it looks out over the mill and a pond formed by the flow of the millrace.
The second guest house
The second guest house, reached via a little bridge, is constructed on one of the islets. It is entered via stone steps.
Records of the mill’s history date from the 17th century, a time when its dykes were built. It burned down in 1790 and was rebuilt in 1800. It has full water rights.
A 19th century greenhouse accommodates seeded plants and those that are sensitive to frost.
The south-facing covered area and its bread oven are ideal for taking meals outside in the spring and summer.
And lastly, the barn and its attic can be used for storing small boats for outings and other water games.
The caretaker’s cottage
This caretaker’s cottage stands three metres away from the property’s main entrance.
The ornamental pool near to the traditional long farmhouse appears to draw the eye towards the natural features worthy of notice. One section of the parklands spreads gently out towards the flowing river, another section comprises five islets, the biggest of which spans 3,500 m², all connected to one another via bridges. The orchard is planted with apple, plum, walnut and cherry trees. Fishing enthusiasts will find carp, barbel, silurid and pike in the streams. The fishpond constructed in the 18th century is still in existence.
Where wood, stone and water meet. The wood of the robust piers supporting the airy roofing frameworks. The stone of the mill’s austere and noble facade. The water that makes the place lively, a leisurely way of life now that the working life is ended. The river feels sufficiently at home here to lazily wind its way between the five islets. The miscellaneous buildings are restored and ready for all kinds of projects. The natural setting is tamed without being formal. New owners will vehemently contradict poet Jules-Supervielle: “I imagined my life as following the example of rivers. Not settling even for the tiniest instant”.
