Paper mill Liveau
Rehabilitated paper mill.

A restored former papermaker and flour mill, now hosts a living paper museum in an idyllic setting.

On the banks of the Sèvre Nantaise river, this example of local “Clissonnais” architecture has continued to make paper since the 19th century. This 15th-century water mill, originally built to make flour, was transformed into a paper mill in the early 19th century, and completed by a two-storey brick drying room with round arched openings atop pillars that are reminiscent of Italian loggias. This paper mill, which has since been rehabilitated, paddle wheel and all, is a living workshop where you can make your own paper and try printing.

Nearby is the Bois de Buis : a protected natural area within the department, and home to boxwood trees – a Mediterranean species found nowhere else in the Loire-Atlantique region.
