Such a great place to visit on a cool day when you fancy a walk. We walked from Parga to the Watermill via Valtos beach and then up into the hills all on quiet tracks. It was hilly but our reward when we got to the watermill was a pit stop in the associated Mylos cafe where we had fresh lemonade. The watermill itself was interesting and I would recommend a visit

The watermill can be reached by car. From there you do need to take a short walk to the waterfall. Perhaps best is to park your car at the mill, visit the fall and come back to the watermill to enjoy the nice and quiet piece with a nice cooling drink from the small taverna at the watermill.
Both the fall and mill are worth while a visit. The museum is very small but a nice short visit.

If you go on foot, you wont miss it. It is small, but really nice. There is no fee to enter, but do not forget to leave some money in a basket.

After catching the train from the beach we were taken slowly up into the hills scenery was lovely as we wound our way up to the water mill. The gentleman, proudly spoke of how his grandfather made a home for his family and with their neighbour's produced bread and fresh running water to all the people around them. Very interesting and informative about how hard they had to work. On show some of the original tools equipment used and some he made himself. With lots of work still to do he plans to get it back to how it was when he was just a young boy. Very proud man who with help of his family and friends Hope's to make this a working museum once again. Old photos of his relatives on the walls made it so easy to help you go back in time, to how it was. Would recommend this trip, and would do it again if I went back to Parga

We were told about the watermill at the hotel so decided to take the hire car rather than the train.We turned off the main road and ended up on a what i would call a Mull track,so decided to park up and walk to the watermill.It was worth the walk.We have a drink at the little cafe which was lovely and very reasonable.The museum is small but fascinating and a donation is all they want.We then walked to the waterfall.It's a bit of a slog especially in 30 degrees heat but what a spectacular sight when you arrive.To see the waterfall was well worth all the effort and when you walk back you can always get a cold drink at the cafe.If there is one thing i would recommend it would be to get the Parga Train it's a lot easier.

Interesting insight into the past, only small but worth a look. Nice little bar by the river to have a drink.

Took the Dotto train trip to the Watermill and waterfall. You can walk, but quite a way on a hot day. Lovely journey and the Watermill has been well restored with some interesting examples of local Greek tools and customs - there are also some photographs showing the original owner and family. The walk to the waterfall is all up-hill and quite steep, but not too far. Worth seeing, but secure footwear is a must!

An insight in to how the watermill ground the corn to make the flour. It has been restored so that the water power still turns the stones. A hike takes you to a waterfall, quite pretty to look at and but difficult under foot. We came with a party from Parga with a guide.

We went up to the Watermill by Train, lovely scenic ride up to the Watermill, and interesting how they used to mill the corn. The old man spent time explaining how the Watermill worked and answered any questions,
As for the walk to the waterfall, unfortunately we were not told that it was for the less mobile, I sat in the shade while my husband walked up to the waterfall, he found it a hard steep walk which he said afterwards he wish he had not done.
This ruined a lovely trip if only they had said not for someone who has mobility problems, we would not have gone, it was worth the ride to see the views if nothing else.
