Long Description:
Anjou Wiki source:
Rebuilt in the 19th century, the Boëlle mill (or Château mill) is an Angevin water mill located in the town of Montreuil-Bellay (Maine-et-Loire) south of Saumur.


The water mill is located on the Thouet, a river which flows into the Loire near Saumur. Its location is mentioned in the 13th century. It was rebuilt several times in the 15th and 17th centuries, then again at the end of the 19th century (Contemporary period) in the Gothic style of the 15th century. The milling activity still existed there at the beginning of the 20th century. It will be listed as a Historic Monument by decree of October 20, 1986.

The Boëlle mill is the property of a private person.

Reconstruit au XIXe siècle, le moulin du Boëlle (ou moulin du Château) est un moulin à eau angevin se trouvant sur la commune de Montreuil-Bellay (Maine-et-Loire) au sud de Saumur.


Le moulin à eau se trouve sur le Thouet, rivière qui se jette dans la Loire près de Saumur. Son emplacement est mentionné au XIIIe siècle. Il sera reconstruit plusieurs fois aux XVe et XVIIe siècles, puis à nouveau à la fin du XIXe (Époque contemporaine) dans le style gothique du XVe siècle. L'activité de meunerie y existait encore au début du XXe siècle. Il sera inscrit aux Monuments historiques par arrêté du 20 octobre 1986.
