Visiting the Epinay Windmill is primarily listen, see and feel. Listen gears, see this beautiful construction came to life with the wind and feel the sweet smell of flour.

You can use the windmill’s esplanade for your games, pic-nic, but also a shelterded courtyard, indoors and outdoors facilities, and a large parking.
Go say hi to our donkeys Séraphin and Baladin.

But you can also book your participation to make bread or pizza ?
