This former water mill, set in six hectares of parkland, was the setting for the love story of Louis Aragon and the writer Elsa Triolet. You can admire the living spaces, still furnished, and the thousands of books and everyday objects that belonged to the couple. The remains of the old mill are also still visible, enriching the tour and immersing us in the astonishing history of this building with a thousand lives.
