About the Owner/Advertiser, Ms Sylvaine Cannon

I am running this as a hobby to share (what I believe to be) an ideal location to enjoy peace, quiet and the babbling of a brook in a preserved environment.

Year property purchased 1990
Why this location? The river and the waterfall were a decisive factor in choosing the Mill, along with its long history.
Unique benefits of property As you might have guessed, we are not the place to choose for night-clubs, or a next-door supermarket, but exploring the area will provide wonderful discoveries and you'll see stars in the sky at night as we are in one of the few protected zones in France where you can look up and admire the show!
