  • 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
  • Warm welcome, visit, and operation of the mill well explained. Really interesting to visit. Possibility of "buy different flours, as well as seeds on site.
