Berges went through several transformations before becoming the 3-star vacation residence it is today. The Argent-Double river created a narrow valley as it flowed from the Montagne Noire, ideal for small farms and providing water power for mills along the way. As a marble-cutting and polishing mill, Berges housed the workers and their families; it was only a short walk from the village. Water from the canal used to power the mill equipment, still cascades alongside the building before returning to the river.

Later as a farm, its trees - cherries, pears, quince and apples - provided a living for the owner. Today, many of those trees have been restored to productivity and new ones planted, the fruit now available to guests. New plantings include plum and olives as well as ornamental maples, a magnolia, pine, fir and willow.

The ground floor of the apartment building is now used as studio space for the groups of artists who stay here annually; the apartments are on the floor above. In front of the building is a wide gravelled drive and a lawn shaded by ancient cherry trees. Below the pool is a rose garden and beyond the parking area, a path leads to an intimate space beneath a weeping willow, surround shrubs providing privacy. Benches are placed in other spots around the property - under a huge fig tree above the river's edge; within a rocky enclave above the mill canal.

The river curves along one side of the 400 meter length of the property and the hills rise on the other. The mill canal divides the terrain lengthwise; between the canal and the river is the farmed area, above is forested hillside. The bend in the valley also shapes the property: The prairie where the apartments, pool and gardens are located faces east and west, open to the south.
