Watermill | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5

Off the beaten track, this is a beautifully and sympathetically restored water mill retaining a wealth of original features from the original mill as well as solid chestnut beams and original stone floors.

The Water Mill has a welcoming open plan dining kitchen/living area, hand built and restored by craftsmen using local wood and includes a built in dishwasher and fridge.

Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms with lovely views and a bathroom with separate shower.

There is a state of the art external jacuzzi in the small enclosed yard entered from the back door.

The pretty garden is divided into different areas including a picnic area with solid wood table and benches, small pond, hot tub and a small stream running through the mill.

Externally there is also a utility room with freezer and washing machine.

Valbona is a beautiful, traditional medieval mountain village at 673 m asl through which flows the Esarulo river.

In medieval times there was only the mill which served the local area and the Verucchia Castle. Little by little, other buildings sprang up around the mill until a small village grew, complete with little church. Today, it has changed very little although restoration carried out by the 30 or so residents in the last few years have given back to the village its “picture postcard” beauty.

There is very little traffic around which makes the old village and its surroundings interesting and safe for children.

Castiglione, less than 15 minutes drive away, has a variety of local shops for day to day shopping requirements. The medieval market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana is a 15 minute drive away and provides all manner of facilities and shops as well as the local hospital and train station on the Pisa airport/Lucca to Aulla line.
