The mill

The Moulin de Péroux is located in France, an hour’s drive north of Lyon. It is crossed by the Veyle, major tributary of the Saone, between Mâcon and Bourg-en-Bresse.
The mill and its dependence date back to 1470. The site was for a long time a flour mill, then became a hydroelectric plant in the early twentieth century, bringing for the first time electricity in the homes of surrounding villages.

In 2014, the mill was bought by a couple graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lyon: Marie-Anita Gaube, painter, and Thomas Bonnotte, sculptor and art founder.

The site hosts a foundry of artisanal art open to artists who wish to work with bronze, aluminum or brass.

The Moulin de Péroux is a unique place, welcoming and warm, where the energy
of the river is omnipresent. The site enjoys an area of ​​7500m2 divided into five gardens.
