From the first sight, it feels like a typical Italian summer house - cobble stoned walls, airy rooms, arched passages, classic decor with a pop of colour, a spacious living area and a very large dining table to gather the family around. But the historical walls have their secrets and lived through many years as a fully functioning public mill. To continue its life, it was reconstructed to accommodate visitors and turned into a unique country house.

The stone structure dates back to the 1500.

Special Touches

In its days as public mill, it was powered by waterfalls of a river. The river remains today and its waterfalls where joined together with mill's water reservoir to give basis to a vast swimming pool - an equally rewarding purpose.

Good to Know

There is a helipad on the grounds for those arriving by helicopter. The Owners may on occasion reside in another villa on the estate and may, on occasion, make use of the grounds and pool. The villa is located on different levels, sometimes often without barriers. Small children should always be supervised by an adult both indoors and outdoors.
