The history of the Magnaneraie
In the 16th century there was already a country house called "La Ripaille". It was the place of rendez-vous of the people of spirit of Villeneuve lez Avignon. There, in 1703, a gentleman of Aramon, Mr. DE POSQUIERES, came to live in Villeneuve and, probably to console himself for the death of his wife, decided to institute a new order which he named "The Order of the drink of close observance ". chronic reports that he had had "dice the maternal belly, printed on the forehead, a bunch of red grapes"! He was immediately and unanimously elected Grand Master. Then the members of the order appointed to establish the statutes, the Viguier Royal of Villeneuve, François MOURGUIER, great scholar and poet. The latter immediately composed a verse for the reception of the new members:
"Brother François Rejoicing Grand Master of a Bacchic Order Famous and flourishing order Founded for Public Health To those who have this status Will see and hear, Hello! "
Brother François Réjouissant was Monsieur DE POSQUIERES, and the members all had a new name: Brother BOIT WITHOUT WATER, GOINFRE, Jean DES VIGNES, BUVETTE, DE FLACONVILLE, etc ... The secretary, Brother ALTERE, signed the diplomas bearing a red wax seal. The arms of the Order were two hands, one of which poured wine from one bottle and the other received it in a glass ... The motto: DONEC TOTUM REPLEAT meant: Until it is completely filled! At the end of the feasts, members of the Order drank in a ceremonial glass of prodigious diameter.
The Order, under the impetus of François MOURGUIER, took a big expansion in the whole afternoon. Unfortunately, Francis died of a 19th apoplexy in 1725. The Order lasted another ten years ...
Over the years, "La Ripaille" grew and became a vast agricultural property: a Magnanerie for the breeding of silkworms. The common name has changed over time to become the proper name Magnaneraie.
In 1914, LUGNE POE, a theater man, bought it and wanted to make it a wine estate. He died in 1940 and the estate is divided between his heirs. A Mr. RODE then makes a hotel.
In 1971, Eliane and Gérard PRAYAL become the happy owners of La Magnaneraie, make it a charming and welcoming home, where one makes even better expensive than at the time of "La Ripaille" or "the Order of the drink of the close observance ".
Finally, it is in 2000 that Jean-Jacques Durand, President of Najeti Hotels and Golfs, literally falls under the spell of this house and makes an acquisition. Since then, it is with respect for authenticity and good taste that the house is reborn to offer its guests an intimate, warm and refined.
We wish you a pleasant stay and hope to welcome you many times.
