“Water, paper and wheels”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

This is a museum and should not be confused with the working paper mill, Moulin Larroque, in the same town. I went with a group of about about 10 people (all French speakers) and we had booked the guided tour. The guide was excellent and the site fascinating as well as picturesque, brought alive by the guide setting the mill wheels in motion. The tour took a good hour and my attention did not flag for one moment. I am not sure what arrangements are made for English speakers. Non-French speakers might miss out ... ?

At one point in the tour you get a chance to make a sheet of paper - children are particularly encouraged.

It is well worth paying the extra for the guided tour - I loved it all!
