The origin of this property
Everything began around the year 1600 when the stone walls that still subsist were built. In these more than 400 years, this place has had different uses. This farmhouse that we see today, between about 1900 and the year 2000, was a soft drink factory. The product that was made here was famous and was sold everywhere. The secret: the quality of the raw material, water. Inside the property there were – and they are still working there – three springs that supplied enough to make the soda. Today, only one of the springs is at full capacity and the other two need a simple cleaning to get to the same level. It does not work as such, but the buildings that made up the factory floor still remain and are in good condition.
The buildings of the old factory
All the buildings are made of stone. Most are in perfect condition and could easily be converted into apartments or dormitories. Others, a couple, require reforms basically on the roof. In total, it can be calculated that some 12 bedrooms of between 12 and 15 m2 each could be fitted out in these warehouses.
