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 or for up to 7 people. Exclusive use assured.

Located where the foothills of Alpe de la Luna meet theUpper Tiber Valley, it's a perfect base for walking, painting or cycling, and for enjoying the unspoiled life of historic cities and hilltowns - nearby Sansepolcro (Piero della Francesca's home) is 10 mins drive, and has a lovely summer outdoor swimming pool set in a wooded park, with bar.

Michelangelo's birthplace and Franciscan monasteries are close by. Hilltowns such as Anghiari are just 10-30 minutes drive, and it is also a great base for visiting Urbino, Gubbio, Florence, Siena, Arezzo,

Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Where the foothills of the Alpe della Luna meet the fertile Upper Tiber Valley,(Valtiberina) , Molino Meocci is close to the cultural delights of Tuscany and just within Umbria, known as 'the green heart of Italy'.

Whilst being within easy reach of the key cultural cities such as Florence, SIena,Perugia, Arezzo, Urbino and Gubbio, there are also other delights right on the doorstep. The hills and the valley are very fertile and the farming traditional - the aromas and flavours are everywhere, and produce is all grown and distributed locally. Truffles, olives, vineyards, fruit trees, local honey, cheeses.

Each hamlet has its special festival - chestnuts (Caprese Michelangelo) truffles, wine, flowers, lacemaking, archery, music of all kinds - chamber music (Sansepolcro), jazz (Perugia), chocolate (Perugia)and flag throwing and medieval crafts (Sansepolcro).

Pliny the younger lived near San Giustino, and at the top of the next valley is a still active Franciscan monastery. - Montecasale - which is connected along a beautiful walking trail stretching from Assissi to La Verna
The hilltop monastery of La Verna - first settled by St Francis - is a short drive, and is very close to the hamlet of Caprese Michelangelo, the birthplace of Michelangelo, who credited his wellbeing to the healthy food and atmosphere of his native hilltop. The place has changed little, and the agrarian way of life is still recognisable.

San Giustino

San Giustino (20 mins walk or 3 mins drive) has several friendly bars and restaurants (wonderful food!), plus a range of grocery shops, post office, supermarket, banks, pizzerias, sports centre and a health club.. It's a very small local town, with infrequent foreign visitors. Weekly market in the piazza. It also has a small station - rail connection with Sansepolcro and Perugia.

10 mins drive away - or 20 mins by bike - is historic Sansepolcro. The birthplace of Piero della Francesca, it is a beautiful walled town with a rich variety of restaurants, delightful shopping, and the evening passagiata. It has several hotels, intriguing individual festivals, plus twice weekly market and a cinema.

Horse riding can be found nearby at Il Violino. Cycling is a very popular local activity - hire of very good cycles available, offering route itineraries, and also guided walks. See link on our website.

Molino is very near the border Umbria/ Toscana, and Sansepolcro, the nearest town, is in Toscana (Tuscany).
Citta di Castello - an Umbrian historic walled town -is also nearby (30 mins drive), having a wonderful variety of restaurants, shops, theatre, markets.

“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.
