Visite guidée du Moulin de Raoul

Dates

From 07/07 to 28/08/2022, every Thursday and Sunday.

Authentic centuries-old water mill which used to grind barley and rye as well as produce walnut oil.
Mills and millers once played a key part in society.
Visitors actually see the whole thing work before their very eyes, including a sample of stone-ground flour, just as it was made in yesteryear.
Unspoilt nature. Great outing for the whole family.
Pets welcome.

Fabulous opportunity to step into an age-old mill. The guide provides an interesting insight into hydraulics, the working of watermills and the major position millers once held in society. See for yourself how stone-ground flour was made, and learn how walnuts were processed into a press to produce oil. Millstones each weighing some 800 kilos. Very interesting glimpse of life at the mill, as it once was. The guide, actually a relative of Raoul, former miller on the premises and a colourful local chap who was the last of a long lineage of millers. Guided visits in English: advance booking required. Groups welcome. Wheelchair access.
