Vallon de Moulin Mer

in Guilvinec
  • This little valley takes its name from a rather unusual mill, whose paddles were turned by the movement of the tides, which stood at the top of the vast estuary of Le Guilvinec, a wide, natural inlet which ran deep into the countryside. The tidal mill was part of the estate of Guillaume Charles du Haffond, Comte de Lestriagat, and was run by Hervé Nignon. Today, all that remains are a few stones covered in green seaweed and partly buried in the mud.
