  • A visit that allows to see all stages of manufacturing of handmade paper. Paper plant of hemp, of asparagus, lavender or of nettle or even of elephant or horse dung. but also blue paper made John, rose in a t-shirt... A visit interesting and fun because you can make his sheet of paper. The setting is very nice, which does not hurt.

  • visit nice and very attractive, plan to arrive a little before the time of the visit because the parking is not on the spot (about 500 m). The people are very nice, explain well. Children like adults should appreciate this visit

  • 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.
  • The parking lot is really small and located in the middle of the trees with stumps of trees is apparent in the middle of the road with stones coming out of the ground. I had to turn back because more space between shrubs and badly parked cars because not the choice and impossible to turn. Suffice to say that ca scrapes by time under the car and that it is better to have an suv. It is a bit scandalous not to better develop this site.
