Located 20 mins from Salies de Béarn and 1h from the beach is this authentic and charming mill, present in the Middle Ages and on the bank of the river Bidouze and witness to passing time...Recently restored, today it offers a comfortable home of 130m² on its upper level with below, the hydraulic installation for producing electricity via a turbine and its traditional usage as a mill to produce flour. Perfect for your new life in south-west France.
From the outside, we can access directly into the living quarters which are in the upper level of the mill. The entrance hall serves, to the right, three nice bedrooms (one of which with private shower and toilet), a bathroom and toilet. To the left is the spacious and unusual living area. Just below is the kitchen which still has its bread oven and is a cosy and welcoming space. A few steps lead to the comfortable sitting room where you can see a part of the workings of the mill below.
A service staircase leads down to the mill area where some original tools and objects have been conserved as well as the mechanisms in perfect working order to produce flour.
A micro station is located on the first level with two turbines (installation of a third is possible) with an authorised capacity to produce 36kw. Two independent valves assure the correct working order.
This historic building has stood the test of time with robust stone faces and magnificent arches. The roof is covered in tile and brand new. The building houses a beautiful home complete with all modern amenities; good insulation, electric central heating and a septic tank system up to current regulations at the time of publication.
Situated in a village rich in local history, this mill is registered as an historic building and is on a pilgrim hiking trail (Voie Jacquaire de Tours). Lovers of mills and stone buildings will adore this property which could serve as a chambre d'hôtes for pilgrims and tourists alike.
You will be on the doorstep of Basque Country, 1h from the beach and with the A64 motorway 20 mins away. Biarritz airport 1h, Pau 1h. 2h for a skiing trip. 1h from the Spanish border.
