Discover a flour mill with its intact machinery !

What is the Windmill of Porchères?

A heritage site and an exceptional environment… a Monument Historique inscription; Man and Biosphère, ZNIEFF and Natura 2000 labels for the Isle River that borders the mill…

This mill is a story of men (of an owner, volunteers and employees), who continue to make this heritage live, for the pleasure of young and old.

Whether for a guided tour, a fun workshop or even a discovery walk, you will be welcomed, accompanied and put in confidence by passionate guides who will make you travel in a universe out of time.

The site of the Moulin de Porchères is located in the North of the Libourne area, a few wheel rides from the Dordogne, the Charente and the Charente-Maritime.
It was in the 1930s that the old water mill was modernized. Its stone millstones were replaced by metal cylinders. During the guided tour, you will discover the incredible ingenuity of the system where the wheat grain travels to be sorted, washed, brushed, crushed, sieved and finally processed into flour.

On site, enjoy a time of learning and sharing during the workshop «Make your bread!». Prepare, knead and shape your 250g bread according to your creativity. Notice to foodies!

The Moulin de Porchères is also a love story with the river. Let yourself be tempted by two amazing activities: the waterbikes will give you an incredible feeling of freedom during a walk on the water and you'll have a barbecue in the middle of the river with the barbecue-boats.  

Enjoy a gourmet break at the Guinguette du Moulin, quietly installed on the terrace for a drink, concert or meal.
