This beautiful site of 3 converted traditional stone mill buildings is ideal for groups consisting of couples or families seeking to holiday together but with some privacy between them too! This option gives renters full privacy and private use of gardens and pool - all included in the price. A wonderful setting, with views of mountains all accross one side, and shielded by private chestnut woodland on the other, this is a real mountain hideaway and a fantastic adventure. The site is framed at the back by part an original acquaduct, and there is also a stream running through, which forms little pools for cooling off in when the water is running well.

This option gives renters full privacy and private use of gardens and pool - all included in the price. A wonderful setting, with views of mountains all accross one side, and shielded by private chestnut woodland on the other, this is a real mountain hideaway and a fantastic adventure. The site is framed at the back by part an original acquaduct, and there is also a stream running through, which forms little pools for cooling off in when the water is running well. All 3 character properties, apart from sharing such a unique setting, have been restored with a great deal of love and care, boasting beamed ceilings, stone flooring, chestnut windows and so forth. Properties: There is 'Mulino Grande' which has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, dining area, and living room with sofabed. This house sleeps 8 plus 2. Then, on the same site but on the other side of the gardens are 'Piccolo Mulino' and 'Bambini'. These two cottage apartments which are built into the old aquaduct carrying water to the mill are cute options for couples /small families, both with privacy and their own large alfresco dining space too. Bambini is a one bedroom, 1 shower room property with living/kitchen/diner, sleeping 2 plus 2. Piccolo Mulino is a studio type apartment with an open plan living/kitchen/diner which has a good quality large double sofa bed. There is a ladder style staircase leading to a mezzanine area with 2 single beds too. Shower room. The gardens really are the piece di resistance here, with lots of different places to relax in peace or be together! There is a furnished picnic and BBQ area in the woodland, a wonderful relaxing and dining terracwe with amazing views at Bambini, and a terrace and outdoor eating area for all to eat together outside Casa Grande. Top this grassed areas, large hammock, varius BBQ spots, ping pong area and also a covered marquee if you don't fancy eating inside if it rains, then the owners have thought of everything. Of course, there is also the large 6M x 12M plus Roman steps private pool, which is gated for safety, and is surrounded by an ample sunbathing area nad quality sunbeds. The old stone aqueduct, which once brought water to the mill to drive the millstones below, runs behind the site too and the millstones of the old mill still work today and are used to obtain fine chestnut flour and corn flour; you can see the chestnuts being ground, as they were in days gone by. This really is a unique opportunity to stay on a site where one feels as though time has stood still. Pure relaxation and peace! The gardens also boasts a large private gated pool, and a sunbathing area equipped with quality sunbeds. It will be difficult to tear one-selves away! Treat yourselves! AREA: There is loads of space for exploring, walking & relaxing, & there is a feeling of pure peace, with just the sound of the stream gurgling . Set high in the hills, overlooking countryside, & a mediaeval village below, with the mountains as a backdrop, this really is a heavenly location! Whilst set in the depths of the countryside, amongst beech woods & chestnut trees, the site is located within walking distance of a good restaurant and basic shop (you need to ring the bell !). There is a selection of good restaurants within a 15 min drive too with more thereafter. The drive to the supermarket/hypermarket is less than half hour in both North and South of the valley. If you can tear yourselves away from this little piece of paradise some distances for trips out are below: Pisa - 1 hr 15 mins - visit the famous leaning tower and more besides. Florence - just under 2 hours - great day out when it is not too hot. Visit the Uffizzi, Ponte Vecchio, Michelangelo's David, meander along the Arno. Lucca - under an hour . A mediaeval fully walled city, often voted the best city in Italy! Cycle the fully intact walls, relax in the parks, have a cappuccino in many of the large piazzas watching the world go by... The birthplace of Puccini, you can go to an opera recital most evenings, dine in the many restaurants, visit the 99(!) churches, climb the towers or shop til you drop in the shaded mediaeval streets..... Barga - a beautiful mediaeval town, well known for its arty feel, and its good restaurants. In high season there is often live music in the evenings, and there is an annual jazz festival. Beautiful views abound! Castelnuovo - local market town 30 mins. Grotta del Vento - Wind Caves - 45 mins Parco di Levegliese - country adventure park with torrentismo/canyoning/rock climbing - 45 mins Spa town of Bagni di lucca - 40 mins And lots more besides! Beat the crowd in olde worlde Italy in a medieaval setting, but join the crowd when you wish! More

About the neighborhood
This is a wonderfully unique setting just 1 hr from Lucca! Set in the grounds of an old mill, there are still parts of the original acquaduct , & the house is set beside a stream which cascades into little pools . One can also see the original millstones. There is loads of space for exploring, walking & relaxing, & there is a feeling of pure peace, with just the sound of the stream gurgling . Set high in the hills, overlooking countryside, & a mediaeval village below, with the mountains as a backdrop, this really is a heavenly location! Whilst set in the depths of the countryside, amongst beech woods & chestnut trees, the site is located within walking distance of a good restaurant and basic shop (you need to ring the bell !).
