Le Moulin de Maintenay

Restaurant , Mill (MAINTENAY)


Spoken languages : anglais


Nestled on the banks of the Authie river, this picturesque watermill dates back to the 12th century. Originally used by the nearby Valloires Abbey, it was sold by the Cistercian monks to finance the reconstruction of buildings bombarded during the 18th century. The mill has remained in the hands of the family who bought it to this day. For a long time, it was traditionally used to produce flour, and then it was converted to a sawmill. But in 1970, all commercial activity stopped for good. Restoration work on the mill and its waterwheel began in 1999. The ancient wood oven was next on the list, and soon it was in good working order, baking bread, tarts and buns. You can round off your visit with a pleasant stop at the creperie.
