A fascinating and welcoming visit in the rain! Mervin was an excellent guide full of passion and enthusiasm for the history of Trevelin and the Welsh heritage. A genuine gem in the middle of the Welsh Andes.

Fascinating place! incredible landscape and a GREAT history lesson and also I found it accurate. I absolutely don't agree with other reviewers who talk about racism? The owner, welsh immigrants, only explains history as they experienced it.

This is a modern reproduction of an old mill. Interesting to see Eco friendly use of water to operate different pieces of equipment, and in a nice setting. Totally inaccurate and biased history lesson from start to finish. I could not work out where the owners political views lay, as he seemed to be anti everything. My Argentinian family and... More

My boyfriend and I went to the mill hitch hiking from Trevelin as we didn't have a car. He is a baker, is also welsh and was very excited to see the mill. He has been greeted very warmly though quickly dismissed as he doesn't speak welsh (like many Welsh people nowadays). The first part of the tour is dedicated... More

This watermill dates from when the whole area around Trevelin was famed for it's wheat production. The original millers were Welsh and the family who own the mill and the house are descendants.

I took the tour of Nant Fach in a group of Argentinians and did not identify myself as an English tourist (I can understand Spanish); this gave me a unique insight into how the owner gives tours every day to groups of Argentinians. The first half of the tour was mildly interesting, about the history of the mill and the... More

The water wheel still works and we saw flour being produced. We bought flour at Nant Fach Mill to bake at home.

I love this pretty little mill and its lovely surrounding - but what makes this place special is the Welsh speaking owner who gave us a tour and explained the history of the place in English/Spanish & Welsh. It's is a really chocolate box experience and well worth the effort on the bumpy border road road from Trevelin to Chile.

In about an hour you are guided by the descendant of the builder of the original mill, built in this welsh colony in the center of trevelin, chubut. It's in the outskirts of town, 22 km on a gravel road. This water mill is a replica that was also hand built and functions perfectly. Worth your while!
