You don't have to be a windmill specialist to enjoy a visit to the Moulin a Vent de St Michel. We had two guides - one explained the history and the mechanics of the mill itself and the other explained more about the flour making process. Both guides were very enthusiastic, entertaining and informative. They also were keen to take photos of visitors which they then emailed to us (free of charge). Although the guided tour only officially lasted 1 hour, it took nearly 2 hours for them to tell us all their stories and to answer our questions. Definitely worth taking the time to make the visit.
Minor criticisms: a) it was a little difficult to find the way on foot b) I'm not sure if the guides would have been able to give such an interesting tour in any other language than French c) the mill is mostly a reconstruction i.e. parts of the walls are original but mostly not.
