  • 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.
  • I didn't actually do the tour but the area is awesome and the windmill is worth the detour
  • Super functional mill, the Miller's passionate, flour is super good, I make my bread, campaign, cereal, mix or rustic, everything is at the top. Take the tour, very interesting and funny.
