Last but not least is the old water mill located on the ground floor used by peasants to grind chestnuts. The mill in the past was one of the most important in the country because much of the chestnut flour was grinded by the "Stallun" brothers who, besides themselves, grinded for the peasants of the country and as a "remuneration" was left a quantity of flour called "moe-thy".
Next to the chalet there is another home, where a German family uses it as a holiday home during the summer period, where there were another 4 mills (3 in operation and 1 in reserve) in which the brothers grinded wheat, wheat and barley.
