Description from owner

Description

Perfect as a tranquil getaway for small groups or for an extended family, the accommodation is arranged on 2 levels which you can use together or independently - each level having own entrances and shaded portico/pergola.

You can rent the whole molino, or for a more economical rate you can rent just the upper portico level alone (3 bedrooms) which is ideal for couples and has beds for up to 7 people.

Exclusive use assured: we only rent to one group at a time.

Al fresco dining - deck and portico with bread oven, overlooking waterfall. Gentle clear stream with smooth rock pools for bathing.

An ancient mill house, renovated in 1990, making a welcoming home while keeping its traditional chestnut beams, terracotta floors and ceilings.

Free Wi-Fi is available in the house.

Wood burning stoves in living areas, and a supply of firewood in the wood store

The terrain is fantastic for cyclists as well as for walking - and a local service is available for airport transfers, for rental of excellent bikes, for repairs and equipment, guided walks and rides: see www. hikeandbikeitaly. c o m. They can tailor a personalised custom service to individual needs - including organisation, local guides and transfers.

As for the house interior:

Upper (Portico) Level:

* Living room, with windows opening to the view and sound of the little waterfall below. In this spacious room is a large dining table seating 8 comfortably, a wood burning stove, and a lounge area including sofa bed.

Games, guitar, speaker, CD player, and books provided.

* 3 bedrooms: one double bedroom, 1 family bedroom with 1 double and 1 single bed; 1 bedroom having 2 single beds,

* kitchen - with door accessing the portico.

* generously sized bathroom with shower (no bath) and bidet

Lower (pergola) Level:

*living room with dining table seating 4, a wood stove and easy chairs.

*double bedroom with klng size bed

*kitchen, opening to pergola

* generously sized bathroom with wide shower (no bath) and bidet

* two additional folding beds are available if required

* separate laundry room

* supply of firewood for wood stoves.

Outside:

Upper (portico) level: portico with bread oven, table and chairs. Sundeck shaded by trees, parasol and supplied with loungers. Overlooks wooded trail, and path to rockpools.

Stream runs alongside, having rockpools suitable for bathing, and waterfall.

Lower (pergola) level has paved pergola with table and chairs outside kitchen.

An adventurous and absorbing location for children, with stream, rockpools, hilly terrain, and abundant fauna and flora. However, please note that younger children will need supervision due to steep drops.

A friendly, tranquil rural location - cypresses and sunflowers, vineyards and olive groves. Beautiful walks, great views - just by walking up the hill from the house.

The mill is located on a quiet access road which leads up the hill to a handful of farm properties.

Located where the foothills of Alpe de la Luna meet the Upper Tiber Valley, it's a perfect base for walking, painting or cycling, and for enjoying the traditional life and cuisine of historic cities and hill towns. Local farm produce is abundant, and you can walk from molino to shops and bars in San Giustino, and to restaurants there or in the next valley or hill. The walled medieval town of Sansepolcro is 5km by road.

Further details

Welcome pack provided on arrival.

English speaking agents in nearby town look after the property and can be contacted if required.

Very large outdoor swimming pool in park in Sansepolcro, open summer months.(10 mins drive). Indoor pool in sports centre in San Giustino (5 mins drive)

The upper Portico unit can be rented alone, or simultaneously with lower Pergola floor: they can be connected by the internal stair.

Exclusive use assured - we do not rent to separate groups simultaneously.

Both floors have original small level changes of 3 steps each between kitchen and living areas. The molino is set into a hillside. We have stayed with very small children and elderly grandparents, but small children will require supervision, and assistance may be required for those with mobility problems.

“Charming, spacious house in tranquil, rural setting. Great place to relax.”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2017

Lovely house full of charm & character which looks to have been restored with much care. The beds are particularly comfortable and along with the large spacious lounge and well equipped kitchen, the whole place made for a delightfully relaxing holiday. Outside, the covered patio and decking is a lovely space to sit and read and the working Pizza oven was a great way to cook our evening meal! It was actually great to stay in the autumn where we enjoy sunny days and evenings by the cosy wood burning stove. It's jusra short walk down to the river from the house where you can sit & enjoy the peace of the rock pools surrounded by trees. It is nice to be able to walk, on the quiet roads, into the town (15/20 mins ) where there is a great cafe to get your morning coffee, as well as grocery shops. There are also some great local restaurants. There are so many places within an hour's drive, such as Spoleto, Gubbio, Spello, Assisi and so many more. Choice of great restaurants locally. The property was clean and well presented, the owner very helpful and responded speedily in our booking enquiry and in answering our queries. Would highly recommend, and we have already booked our return visit!

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review - we really appreciate it. Very glad you found all to your liking, and delighted that you'll be returning soon.

“peaceful, restorative, clean and welcoming place”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2016

We visited again and loved it again - the house felt loved and well tended - with plants and flowers outside and food to welcome us in the fridge. we were with family and friends and enjoy the space and warmth of the place. There is a visitors book outlining interesting places to visit and eat and we make more discoveries each time. We saw a wild tortoise in the woods this time. We love going for a walk up the river and having a bathe too. We now get eggs and milk from the farm up the road. We never see many people and enjoy the peace. Its good for anyone wanting a peaceful place near lots of beautiful places. We usually hire bikes - even though its hot and hilly - others like to hire a car but you can get there from Venice/Pisa or Rome on the train, then bus and a walk up a hill - we like that journey into Italy. Its on the Umbrian/Tuscany border - gorgeous

“Lovely, quiet house in a beautiful part of Italy”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2013

This is a lovely old mill in a tranquil area. Good walking from the front door - even better with a car to nearby (and further away) marked trails. Local towns such as Arezzo, Apuglia, Citta di Castello etc all gorgeous and friendly. Pizza oven by the terrace is great fun - remember to use semolina on the paddle to make it easier to put pizzas into and out of oven.
