This is a rare opportunity to buy a real piece of history to be used either as a stunning private home or to be developed into a business. The property was an ancient flour mill owned by the Templars in 1270. It appears to have been built during this time however we cannot be sure of the exact date as the archives were destroyed during the French Wars of Religion. However, documents dating from 1538 to 1778 have been preserved in the Bouches-du-Rhône archives and were saved from the Revolution. The date 1616 engraved in the reception room relates to the last renovation of the stone archways. The current owners have created a very special place and organise historic events and magical weddings. It is the combination of the setting, the medieval property and the possibilities that makes this a truly unique estate. Located 25 minutes from the town centre of Montpellier and same distance to the Mediterranean Sea – it’s just waiting for you.
