Description for B&B:

This flour mill, located in the town of Chirens, nestled in the heart of the Dauphiné region, commenced operations on the Cras river circa 1840. Originally owned by the Richard-Martin family, who were millers for generations, this mill was painted a striking shade of pink in 1895. The water flows through a series of channels before reaching the troughs, where its weight propels the wheel's rotation. Inside the mill, large spur gears connect two sets of grinding wheels: one for corn and the other for wheat. A suspended horizontal axle drives the vertical grinding wheel. Some original equipment remains intact, including the wheat cleaner, troughs elevators, bolters, and flour mixer. The residential portion of the mill has been converted into guest rooms and a kitchen, offering comfortable accommodations for visitors.
