Sustainability criteria

Moulin de Courcelles is a 600 year old mill which holds economic and historic significance in the community of Arbois. Thanks to its hosts, this holiday apartment is now part of an eco friendly site and has been renovated to respect the historic features of the mill.

Your lodging has been producing nut oils, flour, hydraulic equipment (including the turbines for the regional mills), a sawmill, a papermill, viticulture equipment, dairy equipment, fireplaces, furnaces and presses. It now produces enough green electricity to power 75 homes. Producing electricity is not new for this mill. In fact this site was the first to produce electrical lighting in the region.

It is also the home for Association Bi.cycle Power, which was founded to combine earth friendly sources of power (solar, wind, water, and bicycles) with the concept that reuse is the most environmentally friendly form of recycling. Biodegradable waste is fed to the compost and rainwater is collected for energy use.

William and Barbara will share with you their knowledge of this historic mill, and especially welcome you to their home on the border of the river Cuisance in the center of Arbois. They encourage their guests to explore the city by bike and have made storage facilities and repair equipment available to their visitors.
