Geocache Description:

Une cache pour géocacheurs amateurs de caches "drive-in" et de panoramas. En effet, loin d'être caché dans un endroit secret, ce moulin à vent (propriété privée) se trouve à l'intersection de routes départementales.
Toutefois, en même temps que son histoire,  cette cache vous permettra de découvrir une belle vue !
Un grand merci à son propriétaire qui m'a permis de prendre la photo depuis sa cour.

Autrefois élevé en bois et en terre, ce moulin comporte alors des mécanismes en buis, bois réputé inusable.
En 1816, le moulin, connu dans toute la région sous le nom de "Moulin de Loulé', est reconstruit en pierre du pays. Sur sa façade, une rosace, visible depuis la route, est réalisée en pierre travaillée : il s'agit en fait d'une ouverture derrière laquelle le meunier avait son couchage. Autour de l'ouverture, des motifs floraux désignent peut être les quatre vents.

Bonne découverte et .... Vive le 29 Février !

A cache for "cache and dash" and view lovers. Indeed, far from being hidden in a secret place, the windmill (private property) is located above an important crossroads. However, along with its history, this cache  will  make you discover a beautiful view!
Many thanks to its owner who let me take the picture from his yard.
built in wood and earth, the mill used to have mechanisms made of boxwood, famous for its everlasting qualities.
1816, the mill, better-known as the "Moulin de Loulé"
, was rebuilt in stone.  On its façade, a rosette, visible from the road, is made of worked stone: it is actually an opening behind which the millerhad his bed. Around the opening, floral patterns may represent the four winds.  
Enjoy and ....Three cheers for February 29th!
