  • It was a really interesting I didn't know you can make paper from almost anything with fibres a good place to visit and it doesn't matter what time of year you go. 
  • Guided tour very interesting of this paper mill, also good for children as for adults (we were 2 adults and 2 children between 7 and 10 years). We learn many things on the paper. A lot of demonstrations, so we can see the real actions of the paper to the former. The tour lasts about 1 hour. Well informed on the visiting hours before visiting.

  • After a walk along a botanical path along the Bure, we discover the mill. A visit of an hour is required and all explanations are data and with a smile. A discovery of the most interesting, since there is virtually no activity paper mill.

  • 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.

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