The Brousses Paper Mill
Camping at Brousses et Villaret in the Aude, visit to the artisan paper mill
20 minutes from Carcassonne, 2km from your Le Martinet Rouge *** campsite, in an enchanting setting, the Moulin à Papier de Brousses invites you to experience the secrets and magic of handmade paper.
In the heart of the Montagne Noire, in Cathar country, the river Dure turns the bucket wheel and the turbine. Paper pulp is made from old rags: linen, hemp, cotton.
Original papers are also made from horse dung and, above all, from a wide variety of plants: grape stalks, bean stalks, posidonia, rice straw, nettles, ferns…
Guided tours and events at Moulin de Brousses
The one-hour guided tours plunge you into the heart of the village of Brousses et Villaret’s paper-making history, which began at the end of the 17th century with its ancient machines, Dutch stacks and meuleton. After the visit, everyone can make two sheets of paper to dry at home.
Embark on a journey to the last paper mill in the Occitanie region. Discover the magic of paper.
