Reasons for trip

Point du Millier is signed off the D7 between Poullan-sur-Mer and Beuzec-Cap-Sizun.

There is a large car park near the end of the road. Even though the road continues to the small house and lighthouse at the tip,no traffic is allowed beyond the car park.

The lighthouse is built below the cliff so it is virtually impossible to take pictures of it. There is good walking along the coastal path in both directions from the lighthouse over low growing heather and gorse, with dramatic views of the rocky coastline and across to the Crozon peninsula.

Moulin de Keriolet is signed off this road. It is a pleasant walk along a well made track through the trees to the mill, set in the bottom of the valley. A leat supplies water to the large waterwheel. It is a delightful setting with the river tumbling down through a steep valley with rocks. There are tracks for walking.

Entry (free) is on the top floor where the miller lived in a small corner. This area has now been turned into a shop selling a range of different flours (Maize, chestnut, wheat, rye, buckwheat), selection of honeys and ciders. Below, reached by steep stairs, is the main milling area.
