Description from owner


Il Mulino stands solid and comfortable, perched on a rock where the sound of the river flowing beneath your windows will lull you to sleep at night. The Mill was fully modernised in 2000 but many original features have been retained: cotto and wooden floors, beams and even a breakfast table on the terrace constructed from mill-stones. The Mill sleeps 5/6 guests and there are two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and lounge with log-burner.

The countryside is beautiful and ideal for walkers, nature-lovers and those who want to sample 'real' Italy. Honey buzzards, wild boar, porcupines, egrets and dippers on the river are just a few sightings listed by past guests. The river is perfect for refreshing dips.

Badia Tedalda, with its 16th century church with Della Robbia altarpieces, is 5 minutes away, with restaurants and food shops. Half an hour's drive down the Apennines are Sansepolcro and Anghiari, rich in history. Meals out are delicious and very reasonably priced.

Further details

We can do a first simple grocery shop to start off your hassle free holiday.We can arrange cookery lessons and truffle hunts as well as Italian lessons.Writing weeks are another venture that has proved popular.Il Mulino is ideally suited for 5 guests but there is a put-me-up bed for a 6th person and we charge £70 per week for the extra guest.

Further details indoors

- thick, stone walls ensure the mill is cool in the summer and cosy on cooler nights.- the watermill is centuries old and we have retained as many original features as possible whilst providing modern comforts.- stunning location which all our guests fall in love with.

- please note that, because we are in a deep river valley, we have had to install satellite internet with the consequence of very limited download capacity. Internet is therefore available only for checking emails or similar light usage. Better connections are available nearby.

Further details outdoors

We have deliberately chosen not to have a chlorinated swimming pool because the river flowing by the mill has pools deep enough for plunging into and cooling off in the hot weather. Children and adults alike enjoy "pottering" in the water.One of our guests in August 2011 even constructed mini water-wheels in the river and another created stunning stone statues. If you feel like cooling down in refreshing mountain waters, there are two natural pools within a couple of minutes' walk. Sit in the shallows and watch fish and dragonflies, massage yourself under the waterfalls or dive in the deeper, larger pool amongst rocks of all shapes and sizes. Local Italians use these pools too, so you could practise your language skills. The owners have made lots of friends this way.Il Mulino has two terraces for enjoying meals or just relaxing on one of the sun-loungers. There are plenty of secluded spots along the river to sit and read, paint, bird watch or just doze. Put a bottle of wine in the shallows for your sun-downer and in June count the fireflies flitting by!Through the bedroom windows you can look into the woods opposite where guests have spotted deer come down to drink at the river's edge - or go on a truffle hunt with Professor Tocci and his mischievous dog, Chicco.The owners live close by Il Mulino. They are both fluent in Italian and can advise you on how to get the absolute best out of your stay. There is also a book kept in the mill with comprehensive details of activities and places of interest in the area. What are you waiting for?
