THE MILL CONNELLES, elegant Anglo-Norman type timbered manor house of the eighteenth century, is bathed in a typical light at this Seine valley which was dear to the Impressionist painters of the 19th century.
The first traces of the Moulin de Connelles date from September 6, 1683 on a document informing us that this mill was the property of the Baronnerie d'Heuqueville which owned the parish of Connelles sur Seine, originally called "the Mill of Saultal".
The Moulin de Connelles was a wheel-driven mill of the type of those of Ande and Muids. These mills were intended exclusively for grinding the wheat of vassals of Baronnerie. The millers were the intermediaries obliged by the local nobility and the peasants. Often very rich, they perceived in the 17th century rights corresponding to 1 / 16th of wheat crushed under sieving. However, they were no less vulnerable in times of flood and especially in case of war where they were the first attacked and looted as well as castles and churches.
In 1834, after many vicissitudes, we find on the cadastre of Connelles, the mill, a house and a building at a place called "the mill of Connelles" property of Jean-Louis Vallet, Mayor of the town.
Around 1905 the miller's house still survives and the mill is rebuilt in the form of a mansion, the second section being initiated shortly before 1920.
It can be considered that the mill of Connelles probably worked as such until 1860, date of the construction of the dam of Poses which brings a real embarrassment even today because of the siltation of the arms of the secondary Seine such as from the mill.
The mechanism of the mill was dismantled in the early 1900s.
The mill of Connelles, named after the war "Castle of Connelles", in its present form knew several illustrious owners before being transformed into hotel-restaurant at the end of the seventies, closed in 1981 then in 1986, abandoned and vandalized until In 1989, it was acquired by Hubert Petiteau who, after having completely renovated, furnished and decorated the exploits until 2004. His daughter, Karine, continues to embellish and exploits today this beautiful house.
