We had an amazing week in the Mill, having spent 4 days in Lucca before driving up to 'Il Mulino'. The location is stunning and the property itself has been lovingly restored, the photo's of the restoration and family history were fantastic to see. It's amazing how the family have managed to keep so much of the original character of the property AND incorporate all the home comforts. We had everything we needed and more, even having a go at making our own bread in the bread maker (the recipe worked out so well we made it twice!).
Frank S's description of the property in his review sums it up perfectly. We spent most of our week just relaxing by the pool, eating well, exploring the river and enjoying each other's company, such a great escape from our hectic lives back home. We loved the wildlife too, including butterflies, lizards and beautiful mock hummingbird moths and the moon and stars at night were magical.
We did go to the supermarket in Pieve and the bar with the balcony and great view which was recommended in the book. We ventured out on one day to Castelnuevo, where we found the recommended restaurant 'Il Vecchio Mulino' which was a great experience. We were sat down at a long table (made from the wood of old wine boxes) next to an Italian family, and brought a number of courses of local produce - and the biggest mortadella I've ever seen, carved infront of us! Real characters and fantastic food. We were lucky to get a seat as it filled up fast. We had an English couple sit next to us who filled us in on what the local newspaper was saying about the area, and told us of the food festival in their village the following weekend (unfortunately we were leaving the following day). All in all a truly memorable experience!
Adele was also fantastic, great communication beforehand and also while we were there. We would absolutely love to return, and explore the area a bit more. We may try to take some more of the family next time! Thanks again for a truly memorable holiday!
Prior to arriving at Il Mulino (The Mill) we had high expectations of this property - and we were not disappointed. Clearly the owners have invested much time and effort on their restoration project, and it seems to us they have struck a perfect balance between retaining the historical character and features of the property, while simultaneously incorporating modern essentials. Although the windy road leading up-then down- the mountain to access Il Mulino can be a little intimidating at first, this also adds to the dramatic setting of the property within the hills of the Garafagna region. The rich, dense vegetation and almost tropical canopy of trees made for dramatic landscapes and sometimes felt like we were on the set of Jurassic Park! Nevertheless, the abundant sunshine hit the pool and decking area around 9.00am each day and was good through to about 4pm. Wonderful sunrises and sunsets. The 4 bedrooms, two bathrooms, WC, kitchen, lounge and verandah area were all spotless, well maintained and fully functional. The property is about a 10 minute drive into the nearest village, another 5 minutes on to Pieve Fosciana, a small town with a couple of supermarkets, and about 40 minutes from Lucca. Pisa and Florence both within easy driving distance, but beware - Florence is closed on a Monday!! The house "manual" is an extremely useful document with some great tips. Local restaurants are fantastic, especially Il Pozzo in Pieve Fosciana, and up the mountain, Il Casone and Pensione Linda in particular - amazing food and great value. We had several email exchanges with Adele, the owner of the property prior to departure, and she could not have been more helpful and friendly. We spent 3 wonderful weeks at Il Mulino and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. We look forward to returning at some point in the future. Frank & Lesley.
We had a fantastic stay in this lovely property. Plenty of space for all. If you want to watch a film, paddle in the river, cook some selicious food or enjoy a g&t on the terrace there is room for it all. We had large lunches, water balloon fights, pasta, pasta and more pasta. It was a perfect base to explore and fun was had by all. Thank you Adele for all your help.
We've had two fantastic weeks at The Mill! Our kids (boy and girls in the age of 14 and 11) all had a great time, as did we. The garden is a lovely place to eat, play table tennis and to relax, the river is attractive for kids who like to climb and build little dams, the environment is lovely for walking and hiking and the pool is nice and refreshing. Castiglione is a very nice little Italian village and of course we visited towns like Barga, Lucca and Pisa and (the market) in Castelnuovo. The children loved the Adventure park (half an hour drive). The owners are very friendly and helpful (even from a great distance), as is the housekeeper that lives about a hundred meters from the Mill. A real treasure in Tuscany!
We are just completing our second stay at this magical property, having come all the way from the west coast of Canada to visit it again. We love the tranquility of this location, where the only sounds are birdsong and the nearby river. The house could not be more charming, with its rough wood beams and stairs, vine-covered terraces and large kitchen in which we made many memorable meals. Outstanding restaurants and well-stocked markets are a short drive away in the surrounding valley, as is the train station. We were able to take the train for day trips to Lucca and Florence which was very convenient.
We will hopefully be able to come here again in the future; until then we will fondly remember the beauty and peacefulness of this unspoiled corner of Tuscany.
Our family of 6 including grown up children had a fabulous stay at this beautiful and spacious property. We had everything we could possibly need. The gardens and outside eating areas were a real bonus and we all enjoyed lounging by the pool or in the hammock. We visited Pisa, Lucca and the beach as well as nearby villages but our favourite days were just spent chilling out, eating freshly baked bread and drinking wine. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
