Les Moulins du Duc Of the 16th century in our days
Our estate spreads along 20 hectares of an enchanted forest. The Belon River flows accross the property and continuous a few kms down onto the ria of the same name.
The Moulins du Duc is two water mills, one in the first part of the property and the other a little further down the river, in Moulin Mer.
Some years ago, they used to produce wheat flour, and belonged to two different families that worked together.
The mills were turned into a hotel in the sixties and they have been through glorious times and patronized by celebrities. Even the Queen of England once came for lunch.
Many treaties, namely the one by Robert Badinter of the abolition of the death penalty, were discretely signed and celebrated at Les Moulins du Duc….
New Management took over in 2010 and chose to bring the place back to golden times. After heavy investment, the hotel is once again a place guests want to visit over and over.
The Hotel Moulins du Duc, its restaurant Le Raphaël and Wellness Centre « By the flows » welcome you every year between March 1st and Novembre 30th.
Closing for 3 months during the winter allows us the time to restore the property.
See the photo of one of our secret rooms, « the heart of the mill » ; this room between the bar and the restaurant is the most ancient part of the property and dates back to the XVI century.
We call it the heart of the mill because when the wheels are turning, the soul of the mill comes back to life and their crackling reminds us of hearts beating.
