Holiday Rental House
This delightful 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom 16th-century mill house (circa 180sqm), with private pool, is surrounded by gentle wooded slopes, with orchards running down to the nearby river and has beautiful mountain views. 'Il Mulino' is peaceful, private, and has been restored and modernised and even has a second kitchen outside to allow you to make the most out of al fresco living! The house has been renovated to retain its sense of character, with terracotta floors and exposed beams. Careful thought has gone into outdoor living, with a good sized private pool, plus half Roman steps, sunbathing area, and gazebo for relaxing. There is also a very large covered pergola with dining facilities and relaxing chairs, and here there is a BBQ, a further hob, sink and an outdoor wood oven, ideal ...This delightful 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom 16th-century mill house (circa 180sqm), with private pool, is surrounded by gentle wooded slopes, with orchards running down to the nearby river and has beautiful mountain views.

There is also a very large covered pergola with dining facilities and relaxing chairs, and here there is a BBQ, a further hob, sink and an outdoor wood oven, ideal for pizzas. Chilling out in the garden in perfect peace with the only sound to be heard being the running of the river in the distance has to be the best antidote to a busy life! More detailed information: External cobbled ramp to entrance. Ground floor: Living with fireplace, SAT TV, DVD, CD /dining room/kitchen, with oven, hob, dishwasher 2 double bedrooms. Shower room. Steep stairs to first floor . Double bedroom. Walk-through room with twin beds. Shower room Washing machine NB - The attic rooms, reached by steep steps (under some low beams) are more suitable for youngsters - but are light and spacious. Free WIFI Internet Outside: Beautiful private garden (circa 3000sqm) with good sized private pool 11M x 5M plus half roman steps Sunbathing patio around pool and permanent gazebo for shaded relaxing. Large covered pergola with dining facilities, BBQ, wood oven and hob Access to extensive tree farmed grounds, leading down to river A little about location: This beautiful restored Mill House, surrounded by a fruit orchard, and bordered by a stream is the perfect place to enjoy the marvellous view of the surrounding green mountains. The local villages of Poggio and Camporgiano are 2km and 4km respectively from the property, the latter of which has 3 restaurants, bars, an inhabited castle, supermarket, and very small Monday morning market. Both villages have train stations for easy exploring. Castelnuovo, the local market town is a 15 minute drive away, and the beautiful mediaeval town of Barga is a circa 30 minute drive. Lucca is a city that can be reached in around an hour or so, and is a great day out - meander through the narrow streets, cycle around the fully intact walls, take in some shopping, drink and eat in the Piazzas, and visit the 99 churches (!). Take a trip to Pisa in 90 mins and Florence in under 2 hours... The real beauty of the area though is its proximity to two important Protected National Parks, the surrounding mountains and the hundreds of villages where it seems that time has stood still. Garfagnana with its stunning scenery is perfect for walking, picnicking, relaxing, visiting countless hilltop villages, visiting the National Parks of the region. Short trips include the ancient fortress of Verrucole (try your hand at some archery) with its amazing views, the zip wire park of Buffardello (ideal for a shady day under the trees) , the lake of Vagli which covers a submerged village, the Grotta del Vento (the famous Wind Caves), the hot springs at Equi Terme to name but a few.... This is a little piece of paradise! TOURIST TAX - Do note that there is a local stay tax applicable at €1 per person per night, up to a maximum of 5 nights. This does not apply to children under 14.More
