The apartment forms part of a 19th century house which has been sympathetically renovated and opened up to include the adjoining house, creating the spacious and comfortable home that is now available for our guests to enjoy. The mature and luxuriant gardens bordered by the gently flowing river provide additional space for relaxing, fishing or even taking a kayak journey from our river access. Across the road a wooded island provides a picturesque and tranquil place to stroll and relax. The main house was built in 1873 by a vintner, on what remained of the foundations of the main gate of the city which consisted of two round towers built in the 13th century and destroyed during the 17th century. One of the owners of the property in the 19th century was Barthelemy Gautier a famous French cartoonist and political satirist who was renowned for his acute, often biting, observations of contemporary life and manners.
