Moulin de Penthièvre (Seine Maritime)

The estate is made up of a 17th-century château and an 18th-century mill that is still active. The château was built in 1636 for “La Grande Mademoiselle”, the Duchess of Montpensier, one of the most powerful and influential women of her time, granddaughter of King Henri IV and Queen Marie de Medici.

The 18th-century mill will be transformed by the creation of a hydro-electric plant to favor green energy and the creation of a reception hall.

Project

The current grant will help restore the mill’s façade facing the river.
