Some historical background

At the end of XVIII century, the dwelling, in which you’ll stop, was already standing proudly on the main square of the village knows as “Place de l’Etang” (Pond Square).

The Benedict monks from Aubigny’s priory, who were also helping out at the hospital, built many dams on the Badin River in order to operate their mills and regulate the tumultuous course of the river.

The dam, located in front of the hostel, may be the most important one. The water retained forms a pond, which follows the path up to Aubigny and serves the hill.

In 1829, Louis MIELLE, a wine grower, lived in the dwelling and cultivated 6 ares and 10 centiares of local wine plants.

In 1848, he sold a part of the house and garden to his neighbour, Augustin GUENE, a retired solicitor.

In 1863, M. Mielle’s son, Nicolas MIELLE, a manual worker, inherited the property. He sold it ten years later to Nicolas VARNIER-BOUDROT, an in-keeper and farmer.


In 1895, the cabaret was bought by Eugène SEJOURNANT. His widow, Mrs. BARD – SEJOURNANT, ran the place until 1938.
It is probably back then that the main square got embellished with chestnut trees. Eugène MARTIN and his wife took over the holding, then, their daughter Liliane VIGNETET until 1970.

In 1971, Mr. Jean-Claude THOMASSIN bought the facility and focused on catering. From then on, the restaurant bar was hold by different managers.

In 1983, the hostel was rebranded AUX TROIS PROVINCES.

In 1993, Mr. and Mrs. JACOULOT bought the place and are still offering you the environment and food you can enjoy nowadays.

In 2002, in order to serve you better, they opened a 9 bed-room two-starred hotel**, LE VAUXOIS located at the end of the main square.

The story keeps going on, but with greater comfort. The long tradition of hospitality and gastronomy still carries on and the vineyard has reached the hillsides, in order for you to fully enjoy it
