Bewilder and Pine presents "The Hermitage - Windmill at Paimpol Brittany", a handmade and hand-painted miniature, HO scale French Country Windmill that is meant to be a charmingly simple and austere reminder of the necessity for solitude and for inner peace within your daily life.

Fashioned after the old stone houses and windmills found in French villages, this little hermitage windmill is textured and painted in traditional stone colors and "weathered". It's cobblestones are covered in a beautiful moss.

This design is inspired by a windmill found in the countryside in Brittany, which is a cultural and administrative region in the north-west of France. Paimpol is a commune in the Côtes-d'Armor department in Brittany in northwestern France. The town center leads from the port down to the
coast,winding through cobbled streets filled with restaurants and small cafés

This little windmill reminds me of the simpler aspects of life. So much of what we create today is just not an improvement over the old in my view.

The windmill can be used as a personal reminder upon an altar or a mantle or, since it has been intentionally constructed at HO scale size, it can be used with other buildings in the modeling of HO scale railroads and scenes.


“I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind”
Albert Einstein
