History : The mill probably dates back to the Gallo-Roman
period, and the present building to the 13th or 14th century in its lower
part, which is flanked by large buttresses. The mill continued to produce
until 1949. Its wheel (the only major component no longer existing) measured
23 ft across. The gears and millstones are still in place. In addition, the
building houses an exhibition on mills. The large and picturesque mill pond
continues to form part of the property.The small and pretty village of Savonnières in the
"Loire Valley" welcomed a new attraction for tourists ! A shop with second hand
products, souvenirs, wine and other
regional products is now open every day from 2:30 pm to 7:30 pm
apart from Monday.
Do not hesitate to have a look there and visit the
old mill of Savonnières !
