La Casa del Molí in a ancient milhouse dated from beginning of XIXth century, that was refunbished to accommodate our guests for a pleasant stay.
Water of Riera de Pontons was deviated upstream to store it at the dam behind the millhouse walls (dam and dam gates still can be visited). This accumulated energy was used to power the mill machinery and afterwards the water was released back to the main stream through a tunnel behind the garden.
The machinery, which still can be observed, was used to mill the grains cultivated around the area. There is also an automatic saw used to cut the wooden beams required to build the houses at that time.
