  • It's been five years that stayed. What a change, must see family and with his children or grandchildren, the squirrel cage, the manoeuvre of the horses, the size stones, scaffolding. All these techniques are remarkable and sobering to young generations... Do not miss the (new) hydraulic mill and the operation of the grinding wheel grain. Only small negative point, the interest of the tour depends on the guide and his technique to communicate his passion for the job site, we can be enthusiastic or a little disappointed in this case nothing prevents to cut short the visit and to cope alone with explanatory panels. The region has many other things to see according to the tastes of each. A region to explore without restraint.
