Worth a detour. Not only because of the mill itself but also being in the valleye of the Ouysse, with the impressive cliffs. It is possible to see most parts of the mill from the outside. Nice birdlife too.

Passed by by coincidence but it was the highlight of our day! Situated in a splendid natural environment is a fantastic piece of history that is still functioning. It is remarkable what can be done with mechanics and the force of water.

The guide is very enthusiastic about this great little working mill. It was interesting to compare this with De Latreille where we were staying.

On a whim we followed signs on backroads to this historical old mill. Interesting tour in French with English handout. Beautiful setting. Well worth the detour even in the rain.

An eccentric, curt lady runs her short tour of this interesting stone mill....still in amazing operation after 700 years. To realize that this wonder from the Middle Ages, built on the L'Ouysse river, was fortified against thieves, as wheat was very valuable as a currency,...More
