The Royal Manufacture

The Royal Manufacture in Bains-les-Bains is located on the banks of the River Côney along the Canal de l'Est. It is one of the best preserved factories in France. The buildings which have been preserved in its original form, are in the heart of a large park, where you can find an arboretum and a restored chapel, which regularly hosts concerts. Are you having a déjà vu experience? It is undoubtedly because it was the setting for the filming of many scenes for « Indigènes » (a French film on World War 2). While you are visiting the park you can discover a remarkable beech tree which invites you to daydream.

Moulin Gentrey

The Moulin Gentry (Gentrey Mill) is located near Côney Valley along the Cailloux stream. It is between the villages of La Forge de Thunimont and Harsault. It survived time and is part of the craft heritage in the Vosges. Its flourishing activity in the last century was to transform the locally grown potatoes into starch. It was then used in the production of fabrics by the textile industry in the Vosges. At the beginning of the 20th century there were more than 300 potato starch sites. A visit to the mill will take you back in time and teach you a lot about the working conditions, tools and tasks of starch workers.
