Excellent visit. Staff were wonderful, helping me with my broken French (thank you). The crepes were magnificent. A piece of living history, see you next year, and thanks to Bev at Spring Harvest for organising the walk to the windmill.

Really superb couple of hours at this working windmill. The owner speaks very good English so on our mixed tour we were kept fully engaged with the story of the mill and it's history. The small cafe serves Crêpe which were lovely. Highly recommended!
