  • A very complete and so well done hour tour by the Manager of the premises. All the answers to our questions were clear, we were even involved in paper manufacturing. Really interesting, I recommend for young and old

  • Already the place is quite friendly in nature by the river... then the visit is enough interesting we discover one ancestral know-how and we learn things so nothing for that I recommend. But the guide has not appeared us very friendly, very a school teacher at the old as much in his explanations (but at least it is accessible to all) in his approach with children... "we do not touch... we listen... here it comes... silence because it is the first visit of the day and after I would have more votes..." not very teacher but fortunately children are rather nice and obey without the fly! But good when you come with little ben better be well behaved and they take 1 hour without moving because otherwise it's shame! In addition to entry it's a bit pretentious because if you want to do the pictures be careful we not the right to take the guide's face so suffice to say that no one took a single photo... I wouldn't even comment here top because too many things to say but at least it to had the merit of being a first 'cause had never heard me!

  • Lovely friendly demonstration of the history of paper making, tour takes up to 90 mins and tend to be on the hour throughout the day. Note though closed for lunch 12.00 - 2.00 pm.
  • Great place, explanations of the manufacture of paper, from its origins. End of visit, small workshop for children to make their own sheets of paper. Very good surprise. Pic nic available tables.

  • Very nice, very well explained, we loved and for a small charge the children were able to make their sheets of paper. Bravo for this dedication.

  • A unique experience. It makes your own paper, you eat in a quiet forest, the river is very near... highly recommended.
