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.

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!

A LITTLE ABOUT LOCATION

This is a wonderfully unique setting! Located in the grounds of an old mill, some of which is still intact. There are still parts of the orginal aquaduct attached to one of the buildings, and the 'borgo' is set beside a stream, which cascades into little pools (lovely for cooling off in!). Internally there are working millstones.
There is loads of space for exploring, and walking and relaxing, and there is a feeling of pure peace, with just the sound of the stream cascading in the background.
Set high in the hills, overlooking countryside, and a mediaeval village below, and with the mountains in the background, this really is a heavenly location!
Whilst set in the depths of the countryside, amongst beech woods and chestnut trees, the site is located within walking distance of a couple of restaurants, and there is a reasonable selection within a 15 min drive too with more thereafter. There is also a little village shop in the local village, and each of the villages on the way down the hill have a little bar and shop too....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!

Reviews

Very clean, modern and well maintained, fantastic outdoor pool and outdoor facilities


By on 26-Aug-2017

Only the access (20 minutes narrow serpentine road) and the house entrance (uncomfortably bumpy and stony), were a little tiring, Otherwise simply recommendable with a very high recreational value.

Italian heaven


By on 07-Jun-2017

Great house, beautifully renovated, stunning views about 40 minutes from Lucca. The house is spacious, well stocked, clean and comfortable and easily accommodates 8 or more. The layout allows each bedroom its own space so everyone has extra privacy. The owners were lovely, friendly, helpful and available if you needed them. There are some lovely restaurants near, wonderful little hill towns to explore or if you're feeling energetic good hiking trails nearby or just laze by the pool! Hope to have the opportunity to return.

Fantastic


By on 17-Aug-2016

Borgo Mulino was fantastic, very high quality build and good standard overall, clean , well equipped , pool was great.
Weather was hot in the day but the mountain air cools you down in the evening.
The local restaurant at the top of the hill is great value and really nice.
Its literally in the middle of nowhere which was perfect for our large group.
The staff who met us on arrival were really nice and helpful- they assisted us in booking a restaurant and finding some lost luggage
The driving should not be underestimated though !

Over all 5/5 , seriously good :)

Stunning setting well beyond expectations


By on 30-Jul-2016

We arrived on the second week of a three week holiday in Tuscany to be met by Sauro and Marita who were very welcoming. Whilst the the property is a little off the beat and track it is a must for anyone wanting a relaxing get away from it all location. First impressions when we arrived were wow ,the property, location and setting were just stunning. For the whole two week stay we could not pick a fault .The only negative that i could add to this review was that we had to leave at the end of our holiday.

Stunning Property nestled in the hills of Tuscany


By on 23-Jul-2016

We had a fantastic time in Borgo Mullino. The views are stunning, the houses impeccable and the owners unfailingly friendly and helpful. The property is circa 40 minutes drive from Lucca through beautiful countryside. In the local area we went canyoning, paragliding rock-climbing and walking, all of which were great. As the houses are up in the hills/mountains, the temperature is pleasantly warm but never gets to the uncomfortable levels of the valleys.

A fantastic break for three families


By on 16-Jul-2016

The garden and houses were much bigger than we expected and were more than enough for our party of 3 families (6 adults and 5 children). We didn't even need to use one of the houses. They were well appointed and comfortable but we spent a lot more time outside than inside anyway.

The pool is a great size, especially for older children (all of ours were over 10) and a lot of time was spent in there. The garden was great to walk around with plenty of wildlife including an abundance of geckos and one day a deer (behind a fence). The stream running through the garden was very pretty and even included a waterfall (more photos of the garden on the website would be good).

This part of Tuscany is very scenic but as a result the road from the main valley to the house is windy but not scary if driven at normal driving speed rather than Italian style! Despite the rural location we still managed to visit Lucca, Pisa, and Florence on day trips as well as enjoy the scenery on the doorstep.

This is a great property for a group of families provided that you want to be in a peaceful rural location rather than in the middle of a tourist resort.

“Perfection!”


By on 26-Jul-2014

We travelled a family of 3 initially, on a 3 week holiday. The scenery and location of the property was so stunning, that we invited both family and friends to join us!
The house is newly refurbished, 4 floors, with enough bedrooms to house a big family/group. Easy access to big swimmingpool/pool area, which was a perfect way for us to relax. The property resides in an unspoiled area, and the view is towards purely nature. We can absolutely recommend this property to everyone wanting to experience the real Tuscany!
