Brief Note on the Auberge de Tavel

A Tavel, whenever a peasant drew a furrow to plow, he was almost certain to find the remains.
The site that interests us is to say the location of the Auberge de Tavel, Tavel some passionate archeology undertook there are a few years, research has naturally led to the discovery in instead of vases, urns, coins, scrap of black and red pottery, clay pipes of... All this of course was a point of convergence: the thermal baths at the entrance to Bouvette. This means that the Auberge de Tavel is based on a Gallo-Roman under ground. Of course, the years went by. One day the place was called the "Moulin d'Oli". No document secures the time of its construction. But it was first mentioned in 1572 in the reign of Catherine de Medici. This is a royal order on perpetual lease to the mill. Among other scattered writings, a 1647 document presents an assignment and remission of this oil mill made by Caesar Calmen Peter Taulier holding the father of her fire since 1603. Throughout the eighteenth century that pension oil mill is on charges of the size. We could make other information on this old mill. In 1715 the cover collapsed and debris were sold to the public. It was restored a few years after 1762. He was still working in 1800. It was in 1839 that Odoyer Stanislas, mayor, he built on the site of a public school boys, whose education was entrusted to the Marist Brothers. In 1905 under the Ministry Combes, she became the public school boys. In 1970, this school still somewhat antiquated was abolished and new schools of a modern, airy, were built north of the village. In 1972 the playground and the old buildings of the school were to be seamlessly converted to Auberge de Tavel we know. In May 2003, Corinne Brouillaud buys this property, delighted by the stones, beams and the good life that emerges.
