Here, nights are calm and peaceful, often lulled by the melodious song of the nightingale, and in the morning, squirrels and chickadees are the first to rise and announce a beautiful day.
An enchanting place
Situated on the edge of the village of Rognes and in the middle of a small green vale, this ancient 18th century watermill nests in an exceptional and preserved natural environment.
The south facade with the wooded park and the swimming pool area. On the north side, lie a bamboo grove and a small shady clearing.
The one acre estate is planted with large and venerable trees ; a luxuriant and varied vegetation contributes to the enchantment of the place.
On the ground floor is a large room with terracotta tiles and beautiful exposed beams in light wood, a cool place when the southern heat becomes too onerous. The guest rooms are upstairs.
The large living room on the ground floor, with dining area for breakfast, open-plan kitchen, drawing room and the fireplace.
The furniture and trinkets found during our travels give the house its warm and special atmosphere.
The rooms, located in the former granary, faces due south and offers a beautiful view of the garden.
The swimming pool
The bathing area is freely accessible all day long and is surrounded by a sheltered area planted with palm trees and several varieties of bamboos providing an exotic touch.
A summer night by the water's edge, when the cicadas are gone asleep.
The little smoking "room", shaded in its bamboo box.
The wonderful vale
Behind the house, the Rossignol vale opens up in the middle of which a brook runs between the bamboo trees. Brought back from Anduze and planted twenty years ago, they have since then become sturdy green giants.
Passing through the bamboo grove and its Asian touch, the rocky outcrop opens onto a pretty shady clearing where you can take a nap and let yourself be lulled by the singing of the birds.
The large dyke is an imposing building ; an ancient mill in ruins closes the estate and offers a majestic and wild view of the countryside.
