Le Grand Moulin

The Story of the mill

From the map designed by Cassini in 1750, at the time of King Louis XV, it appears that a water-mill was already there on the very spot where is the present mill built under Napoleon I. This mill was used for grinding wheat and was entirely powered by the waterwheel which was built in the 1820’s. The metal parts have been designed to last for centuries. This type of wheel came into general use at the beginning of the 19th century and was called the “English wheel” as it was made of british steel.

Under the control of a foreman, 10 millers worked round the clock

The Great Mill stopped activity in 1972. In 2005 a new owner has turned the mill in a cosy romantic bed & breakfast.
