Description

'Il Mulino' is peaceful, private, and has been restored and modernised and even has a second kitchen outside to allow you to make the most out of al fresco living!

The house has been renovated to retain its sense of character, with terracotta floors and exposed beams.

Careful thought has gone into outdoor living, with a good sized private pool, plus half Roman steps, sunbathing area, and gazebo for relaxing.

There is also a very large covered pergola with dining facilities and relaxing chairs, and here there is a BBQ, a further hob, sink and an outdoor wood oven, ideal for pizzas.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The Tuscan Region of Italy is well known for its warm balmy summers, beautiful countryside, rolling hills, mouth - watering food, and of course its towns and villages, rich with mediaeval architecture…

The Garfagnana region of Tuscany, often known as its 'Green Lung' is situated away from the milling crowds that can often be found at the most famous Tuscan locations and is totally unspoilt, remaining untouched by tourism.
The scenery is spectacular, green and mountainous with views of both the Apuane and Appenine mountains at every turn…And, due to the altitude whilst the weather can be very hot, it is always pleasantly cool for sleeping…
The food is usually home made, using home grown produce, and is typically simple and extremely tasty. Prices here remain very reasonable due to the fact that food is prepared with the locals, and not tourists in mind…The local wine is cheap and surprisingly drinkable!
The pace of life is slow and peaceful – spend your days enjoying secluded picnics, swimming in rivers, or watching locals play bocce or 'cheese throwing'. Visit hundreds of ancient hill top villages, or relax at home basking in stunning scenery.
For 'townie' days, visit the mediaeval towns of Barga, Lucca, Castelnuovo, with Pisa and Florence within easy reach too…
This is Olde Worlde Italy

Camporgiano

This beautiful restored Mill House, surrounded by a fruit orchard, and bordered by a stream is the perfect place to enjoy the marvellous view of the surrounding green mountains. The local villages of Poggio and Camporgiano are 2km and 4km respectively from the property, the latter of which has 3 restaurants, bars, an inhabited castle, supermarket, and very small Monday morning market. Both villages have train stations for easy exploring.

Castelnuovo, the local market town is a 15 minute drive away, and the beautiful mediaeval town of Barga is a circa 30 minute drive. Lucca is a city that can be reached in around an hour or so, and is a great day out - meander through the narrow streets, cycle around the fully intact walls, take in some shopping, drink and eat in the Piazzas, and visit the 99 churches (!). Take a trip to Pisa in 90 mins and Florence in under 2 hours... The real beauty of the area though is its proximity to two important Protected National Parks, the surrounding mountains and the hundreds of villages where it seems that time has stood still.

Garfagnana with its stunning scenery is perfect for walking, picnicking, relaxing, visiting countless hilltop villages, visiting the National Parks of the region. Short trips include the ancient fortress of Verrucole (try your hand at some archery) with its amazing views, the zip wire park of Buffardello (ideal for a shady day under the trees) , the lake of Vagli which covers a submerged village, the Grotta del Vento (the famous Wind Caves), the hot springs at Equi Terme to name but a few....

This is a little piece of paradise!

“More than we expected”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2015

Very relaxing with the sound of a little waterfall in the backyard. Ideal for visitors who need to wind down. We spent all time at the gorgeous pool area or the outdoor kitchen under the gazebo. Very recommendable! The owner was very interested in how we were doing, but spoke Italian only. We are likely going back some time to this or the other property he owns a little further up the road.

“fantastico”
