...is the Moulin d'Angibault, and its stretch along the river Vauvre.
This is one of my favorite spots in the Berry. When I was first there they were beginning the process of restoring the mill. I wrote about it in the sketchbook.
Here's a drawing of the mill from that time.
Here's a recent photo from the website of the mill.
Here are some other drawings from there.
And another photo.
"Marcelle looked at this peaceful and charming place that spoke to her heart though she knew not why. She had seen more beautiful... But there are places that dispose us to indescribable emotion, and where it seems that destiny draws us ... "
This is a loose translation from George Sand's 1845 novel,
Le Meunier d'Angibault, partly set at the mill. Even today it is a spot of extraordinary loveliness.
I'm looking forward to sharing it with everyone on the French Workshop.
