Additional Things You Should Know
The Moulin Scalagrand was originally used for the refinery of flour through hydroelectric energy produced through the river.
In the summer of 2017 the adventure of bringing this old water mill back to life has started and a lot has changed since then.

Today the turbines, once used for the refinery of grains, have finally been adapted for the production of electricity, and the establishment has become energetically self-sustainable; offering a zero impact holiday!
