Les Moulins de l’Isle-aux-Coudres

About

Visit an exceptional site gathering in one place a watermill and a nearby windmill admirably restored. Tradition lives on as the miller grinds wheat and we may attend a demonstration of wheat and buckwheat being ground into flour at the watermill. You may purchase freshly stone-ground flour at the souvenir shop or on Charlevoix en ligne Website.

Activities
