The 34 acre site is divided harmoniously between woods (24 acres /10 ha) and meadows (9.88 acres / 4 ha), in the middle of which flows the river that once fed the mill. Several wooden footbridges gracefully cross the river and its reach.
Parents and children can find games and activities on site without disturbing the harmony of this haven of peace, given the space available.
The woods of the property ensure the autonomy of the main boiler and the various fireplaces, combining warm comfort and heating economy. A recent wood pellet boiler provides the complement in the second building.
In order to best serve a clientele of regulars, the owners are assisted by a maintenance man, supported each summer by 2 seasonal workers.
