    Nicely situated in the middle of the rolling countryside. Facing the mont Saint Michel. Miller gives tours throughout the day. Wonderful place to photograph at night.

    Visit informative and very playful even for young children (3.4 and 6 years). They loved it! The Miller is known to Captivate children and adults. Visits every 30 min, possibility to buy wheat flour, buckwheat, chestnut... nice view and more from the mill. To get to Mont Saint Michel

    For those who like precision mechanics, discover a job almost gone, smell and feel of the sounds and smells of the past, visit this wonderful mill, restored and functional. The Miller's friendly and funny in its own way... as a bonus, a unique view over the Mont Saint Michel and the Bay...

    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.
