Dating back to the 18th century, this impressive stone mill has been beautifully and sensitively restored to become a most welcoming and comfortable abode.  Nestled in a hidden valley north of Lucca, the setting of Il Mulino is equally appealing: the surrounding woodland and the babbling brook at the end of the garden create a delightfully rural atmosphere, yet a 5 minute drive (or 20 minute walk, 1.5km) brings you to Fornoli, a typical bustling village where you will find everything from a bakery, bank and bars to a supermarket and a couple of restaurants.

To the front of Il Mulino lies an expanse of garden, the perfect spot for sunbathing.  The pool sits to the side of the house, in an elevated position overlooking the dining terrace and garden.  With the barbecue close at hand and easy access to the kitchen by way of French doors, outdoor dining is easy here.  And what could be more enjoyable than dinner on a summer’s evening in this lovely setting?   

Elements of a traditional Tuscan home can be found inside, from exposed stone walls to wood shutters but with a touch of lightness. The immense wood beams have been painted white and combined with matching walls and tiled floors mean the living areas feel cool and refreshing. 

Turn right from Il Molino and head up the hill to Corsagna (2.8km) for dinner at the village restaurant (recommended by the locals for its homemade pasta, open weekends only).  With Fornoli being on the doorstep (1.5km) there is no need to travel far if you simply wish to relax.  But take some time to explore Bagni di Lucca (4km), famous for its thermal waters which have attracted many over the centuries. The River Lima plays host to a variety of water activities from kayaking and canoeing to rafting, all fabulous ways to spend a summer’s day or enjoy a scenic drive through the hills of the Val di Lima and you will be rewarded with stunning vistas and enchanting villages. Whilst the main towns and cities in the area are easily reached by car, for those who prefer travelling by train, there is a station in Fornoli with regular trains to Lucca (30minutes), Pisa (1hr), Florence (approx 2hrs), even Viareggio (1hr 45mins) for a day out on the coast. 

  • Please note: the stream runs along the edge of the garden and the area is not fenced. Younger children may need some supervision in this area.   
  • The double/twin bedroom can be prepared as either.  Please advise at time of booking.
