Molino Meocci

 


ACCOMMODATION


We were intrigued by the character of this watermill, with its original machinery dating from 1767, when we found it 12 years ago, and restoring it has been an ongoing joy. We continue to find it a place of restoration, tranquillity and refreshment, and we hope you may do so too.


The property is full of original character, situated on three levels, overlooking the ever-flowing stream. Spacious accommodation for up to 10 people, this lovingly restored watermill has retained its traditional charm with white-rendered walls, terracotta tiled floors and chestnut beamed ceilings, as well as modern facilities to ensure a comfortable stay.

The two main levels can be used independently, or together by opening the connecting door. to the stairs. Each has its own living room, kitchen, bathroom and entrance, with external portico/ pergola. just outside the door. The lower level has 1 double bedroom, the remainder are in the upper level. We rent the property in its entirety, or you can select just the upper part.

There are two kitchens, one on each level, and a laundry room with washing machine, iron and board. Two lovely bathrooms each have a shower, washbasin and bidet. Towels and bed linen are supplied, and housekeeping/English-speaking babysitting services may be available by arrangement.

The situation is idyllic, with plenty of places to relax and soak in the landscape. A covered portico (with the original feature bread oven) leads to the sundeck overlooking the woodland which borders and extends down to the stream with its secluded, sheltered rock pools. There is parking space for 4 cars.

A wisteria-sheltered pergola shades a patio outside the lower kitchen door, where rosemary and lavender are planted. There is garden furniture for deck, portico and pergola, an original bread oven in the portico, and a portable barbeque.

There is a CD/ cassette player in each living room, and a collection of guidebooks, maps, novels and games for children and adults. A metered telephone is provided.

Small flights of steps add to molino's charm but may be unsuitable for anyone unsure of their footing. Outside, there is a drop down to the stream, so toddlers require supervision.
