In the seventeen hundreds the building on this site was quite old. It was a flour mill until the beginning of the twentieth century; you will find no signs of cereal grown in this area now. The weir that was created to divert water to the mill is part of the property and private, though canoeists have the right to pass over it, but not to stop!!
In the 1940s the building was an Hotel and Restaurant, there cannot have been many rooms available. In the 1950s it was a private residence again and at that time General de Gaulle stayed here during an electoral tour of the region, the Owner was a wartime friend of his.
