|Further details outdoors|
The mill has 2 outside dining areas, one with barbecue. Terraced garden with pool and sunloungers. Swings for children and 10 achres of private woodland.
The Mill is a 3 story building and there are many steps, making it unsuitable for some disabled people.
In the colder months we do provide all the wood for open fire, but unfortunately gas is very expensive in Italy so we have to make a nominal charge for the central heating, which normally amounts to around 30euros a day, it all depends on usage!
On driving to the Mill you will pass Ponte della Maddelena (the devils bridge) dating back to the 10th century. Lucca is the famous medieval town sitting inside its own defensive walls which are still intact, there is a famous Roman amphitheatre which has been changed into a lovely piazza, cathedral, churches, shops, restaurants, bars an a market, all within a 15min drive from the Mill.
