Mill Bourg-en-Bresse (01)

  • Surface 375 m2
  • Rooms 20 
  • Bedrooms 12 
  • Land 2 ha

A mill, with full water rights, its equipment, its outbuildings and 2 ha of farmland, where the Bresse bocage countryside meets the first of the Revermont hills.
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 and the country lane is used but by residents of the hamlet. 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.
Just prior to reaching the property, the recently crossed river and the wheel displayed against a building bear witness to the original vocation of these premises. Without fencing, the entrance provides access to a central courtyard and two long buildings facing one another, both typical of the vernacular architecture of farms in the Bresse region.
Set alongside the river, the old mill was probably constructed in the 16th century. It houses the main residence and a few bedrooms for a bed & breakfast activity. Typical of the farms in the region, the deep overhanging roof, resting on a horizon beam and a series of wooden piers, forms an immense canopy.
The other building, comprising two adjoining sections under a single hip roof covered with Roman tiles, was originally the miller’s house. Its stone, cob-rendered walls and its openings, with wooden lintels topped with a brick arch, exude character. This outbuilding is now divided into a fully renovated house, a summer kitchen laid out in the room where a large bread oven is still in good working order, several stables and a garage.
These buildings stand surrounded by meadows, bordered by mature oak trees and spanning approx. 2 ha.
The millCourtesy 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.
Ground floor
Between its stone, its wood and its machinery, the mill’s atmosphere is somewhat timeless. Both the private and the commercial sections have their own entrances. The old mill’s machinery, in the section devoted to guests, has been cleverly enhanced.
The private section comprises a vast, L-shaped kitchen-dining room, a toilet, a shower room as well as utility rooms such as a laundry room, a linen room, a storeroom and a boiler room. A superb reception room, between the two sections of the building, is laid out under a French ceiling.
First floor
The two pairs of grindstones are on this level in a room overlooking the river and the weir. Five bedrooms, a bathroom and a toilet are currently used by the property’s owners. Three other bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, are used for guests. A section of the mill’s machinery is exhibited behind a showcase.The outbuildingsThe 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, …
