  • This is a fun little place to drive by and take some pictures of you're in the area. There are also great pictures to be had in the area of Mont St Michel.  more »
  • We didn't have time to do the visit, but it was pretty neat! The owner was very nice, he still makes flour there which I thought was lovely.  more »
  • We just dropped in for a photo. It was 12:25 so it was closing for lunch at 12:30. The tour was cheep enough but probably in French.  more »

  • Werid lonely operational windmill next to the always overcrowded mount saint michel. You can buy flour here!
  • Pontorson to the "Ancien Moulin de Moidrey" gone to in order to get inside a tour of the miller himself. Mill was running and was very interesting to see. Got lots and clear explanation of the operation and history of the mill. Cost €4 for guided tour.
  • Great viewpoint - sundowner spot
  • I didn't actually do the tour but the area is awesome and the windmill is worth the detour
  • I learned how a windmill works a to z guided very rewarding visit. Point of view on the Mont saint Michel m1gnifique
