History

This great red-brick house, built in 1863, is a vestige from the past of the village, in which the production of sugar played an important rôle. Until 1918, when it was largely damaged during the war, the directors of the sugar factory lived there.

Rebuilt in 1924, it is now called « The mansion of Crisolles »
The sugar factory closes in 1966, the industrial buildings are demolished. The house stays in place, Françoise and Gérard Lecomte buy the house in 1984.

The house today

After having crossed the large gate from the street, you enter the paved courtyard of the mansion of Crisolles.
The house, away from the street and surrounded by a nice garden, gives you a sense of calm and tranquillity.
You have the possibility to park your car in the courtyard.
Access to the room is made through the main entrance, which gives way to a library-hall and a stairway made of solid oak.

Breakfasts and meals are given in the dining room with a herringbone parquet in waxed oak.
Next to this room you will find a veranda, facing west, which offers not only a view on the garden ; it is also a poolroom (2,60m french pool table) and a little salon where our guests can use an electric boiler with open tea and coffee.
You will be seduced by the elegant proportions of the rooms, the sweet heat released by the parquets and the oaken strairway ; the familial furniture and the sweet contemporary colors  go hand in hand, creating an harmony between the past and the present.
The back garden, delightfully shady, will allow you to spend some quality, relaxing time.
