The property is made up of two water mills whose first historical traces date back to 1728.
The first mill, located in a tower, was once used to grind grain (wheat and rye). The second mill was used as a sawmill. Its wheel is still visible.
You can walk around the 5000 m2 property.
The place is bordered by two rivers the Morges and the Usses. An ideal place for fishing and nature lovers.

The space
The Mill Tower has a private terrace, equipped with a dining table, garden furniture, a sheltered Jacuzzi, a charcoal barbecue and a bread oven, which you can use if you wish (wood not provided).
Once inside the tower, you will arrive in the fully equipped kitchen with its dining area for 4 people. It is also at this level that you will be able to go to the shower room, composed of a toilet, a basin and an Italian shower. On the first floor the living room, equipped with a sofa bed for 2 people, an armchair and a stool (3 people can sit on the sofa), as well as the television. On the top floor, under a beautiful exposed framework, the parental bedroom, equipped with a 160*200 bed, a clothes rack, drawers under the bed for storing your clothes. You will also be able to access the walkway if you wish. Don't worry, the door of our house that opens onto the bridge is the door of our office. It will never be opened during your stay. You can access it if you wish.
