Description

Mulino Cottage is a detached cottage, set on its own private plot, in the middle of the village. It has a large garden at the back of the cottage, with fantastic views overlooking the hills and the dales, the meadows, the vineyards, the olive groves, peppered with every different colour of wild flower, honey bees feasting greedily before returning to their Queens, the Monarchs of this magnificent universe - all yours for the taking at the Garden Of Eden. It has 2 double bedrooms, one of which has a mezzanine floor with a single bed, a sitting/dining room with a fully fitted kitchen + 2 bathrooms.

The Garden Of Eden is in Toppo di Morra, a tiny 17C borgo, in the Perugia area, converted into 6 luxury eco cottages, 4 of which are detached and standing in their own grounds, 2 of which are at different levels from each other in the same building.

Mulino Cottage is a detached cottage, set on its own private plot, in the middle of the village. It has a large garden at the back of the cottage, with fantastic views overlooking the hills and the dales, the meadows, the vineyards, the olive groves, peppered with every different colour of wild flower, honey bees feasting greedily before returning to their Queens, the Monarchs of this magnificent universe - all yours for the taking at the Garden Of Eden. It has 2 double bedrooms, one of which has a mezzanine floor with a single bed, a sitting/dining room with a fully fitted kitchen + 2 bathrooms.

The Garden Of Eden is in Toppo di Morra, a tiny 17C borgo, in the Perugia area, converted into 6 luxury eco cottages, 4 of which are detached and standing in their own grounds, 2 of which are at different levels from each other in the same building.

There is a larger village with grocery store, butcher, baker etc, 1 km away.

Along a windy country road, snaking higher and higher, the world tumbling below you in a whorl of pastures, valleys, sunflower fields, poppies, hill top mediaeval towns and villages, sweeping towards Cortona, you arrive at The Garden Of Eden.

450/500 mts above sea level and below the snow line.

Set in a 230 hectare, organic farm, The Garden of Eden is a heavenly place. Bicycles are available, free of charge. Or, you can wander on foot to your hearts content, along a sign posted lane, all round the private estate. This beautiful hill top village is set in a beautiful confusion of olive groves, vineyards, chestnut trees and tangled woodlands, overlooking a south facing valley, whose green planes and undulating hills fade into a heavenly infinity.

Ahead is a tree-lined country lane that leads into the heart of the village and the large pool beyond. You pass the Fienile Cottage (large 1.5 bedroom/sleeps 3/5) first, then, the Stalla Cottage (1 bedroom/sleeps 2). Curving round a grove of chestnut trees, you come upon the Mulino Cottage (2.5 bedrooms/sleeps 5). Across a courtyard, is the Quercia suite (2 bedrooms/sleeps 4/5). Below the Quercia suite is the Cerro-Castagna Suite (2 bedrooms/sleeps 4/6).

In the middle of the village is the laundry room with washing machines and ironing facilities.

A little further through the village, passing what used to be the Prince's house, the grand house of the village, as yet, unrestored, you arrive at the path down to the large pool, with wide paved areas, easily enough space for each guest to have lots of privacy.

Beyond the pool, are the huge, organic vegetable gardens and orchards, where you can pick your own fresh fruit and vegetables. In this area is also the fish pond, which is always full of fish and never artificially stocked ! Fishing rods are provided, should you wish to while away an afternoon in this heavenly place, breathing in the pure air of this deliriously beautiful environment.

TOTALLY ECO-SUSTAINABLE

The entire village of Garden Of Eden has been reconstructed using ONLY sustainable ecological methods and is dependent totally on recyclability and solar energy. Nonetheless, having spared no expense, the whole system works in a away that you would not suspect its 100% ecological worthiness. Furthermore, in keeping with its ecological pedigree, it produces its own eco wines and olive oil. Both these plants are within the village and anyone can go and see how they function, to produce some of the finest wines and olive oil, exported all over the world.

Here, everything is pure and sustainable…..energy, water, fish pond, crops, wine and olive oil. However, to live here, you would not suspect that it is any different from any other luxury accommodation, except that the air you breathe, the fruit and veg you pick from the organic land, the fish you catch, the wine you drink and the olive oil you drizzle over your organic salads, is all free of pollutants.

The only extra payment would be for the “house” wine and olive oil, of which there is a fine selection. The rest is there for the taking….
