    Welcome to Saint Etienne Roilaye

    First recorded in History books in 1616, the original Mill, was built as a wheat mill. In 1830 the Mill was extended adding 2 turning wheels, one for water, the other for oils, to operate as a Textile Mill for colouring canvas. 

    Eugenie De Montijo, The Empress of France and wife of Napoleon III, restored the Mill in the 1850’s to continue coloring and production of textiles for the Royal Palace located in Pierrefonds. The color Empress Blue was given her namesake to reflect her passion for colour, and her obsession towards experimenting with Chiffons, Lace and Silks from Lyon.

    The Empress became renowned as a fashion icon of her time, designing the Eugenie Hat. The Eugenie hat became a fashion favourite in the 1930’s by the likes of Greta Gabo and today the modern millinery fascinator, remains a global must have. Her passion with fitted gowns with heavilly embroidered tops, heavy laces and silk overlays, had the original Spanish Bolero designed in her name. 

    In the 1960's the Mill was renovated into a Luxury Country Estate and since that time has undergone several renovation projects to present the Moulin Royale.  Standing proud alongside the original Stream, surrounded by natural Forests, she sets the stage of your luxury country escape.
