    In the past, a sign driving seen. Luckily we've looked at it. Intact ancient mill. Very interesting especially the explanations of the leader on the spot.

    Very interesting visit with a very nice guide. This mill is beautiful and it shows us how it works. The visit ends with the home of the Miller where the guide made us taste of nuts and a small glass of brandy...

    Beautiful mill fortified, loaded with history. Directed by a volunteer tour enthusiast owner of a mill also. So he knows what he's talking about. Is expected not to come away with his bag of flour, and so a digestif made from prunes with walnuts has desire. Very warm welcome. Impressive to see a mill of 14th century still in operation with its four wheels. Beautiful heritage! To do. We did well to listen to the Souillac tourist office. To recommended!

    This beautiful old fortified mill is still in operation and is, frankly, amazing. The equipment is incredibly old and looks like it should be in a museum, but it all actually still runs thanks to the dedicated owners. I have never seen anything like this place in my life--it is like stepping back in time technologically.

    This is a great place, the old chap is super friensly and you get free prune (possibly) liquer and walnuts at the end of your visit

    A great time where time is suspended through this place full of stories which are beautifully recounted by the guide. The guide drives the mill and we can go with a small bag of flour. As long we have even the right to a small glass of mirabelle and nuts! I highly recommend!

    Beautiful mill and rare thing, always in working order (you can also spread with a small bag of freshly ground flour). The visit by the former Miller of places your heavy sound of gold!

    A mill more 600 years crossed by the river Ouysse, fortified by the monks and still produces quality flour. The visit with the guide is unique and absolutely indispensable tasting for souvenirs of vacation (remake of bronzes are skiing). A place full of charm in the heart of an area full of cultural wealth.
