Buggiano house description

Il Mulino di Castelvecchio is a beautifully renovated and uniquely decorated sixteenth century stone mill which is able to provide accomodation for up to 14 guests. The property consists of two separate guest buildings; the large, capient main house “Il Mulino” (the Mill) along with a smaller guest house,'Il Torrente' and a another tiny unit 'La Vicinale' (which is generally not available for rent) as well as a modern swimming pool, flower beds and gardens all situated in the peaceful surroundings of the Cesana river valley and four acres of forest. Wrought iron entrance gates access the entirely fenced grounds (including the parking area). The unique configuration of the guest houses enables our guests to enjoy either their privacy and/or group gatherings. Il Mulino is an ideal holiday rental for several couples, families, larger groups who wish to vacation together in a superbly furnished 'home away from home'. Il Torrente is the perfect size for a romantic escape for a vacationing couple, or a delightful retreat for a couple with one or two children.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: This unique and historical property,an ancient water mill which had served the surrounding rural commmunity for centuries had, even in it's state of almost total abandon, a special feeling about it, an extreme 'cachè', an aura of romanticism and enchantment. Jay, who likes to be with and wanted to work with people, desired to be able to work outdoors and to have her animals with her on a daily basis and not to be forever cooped up in an office, outlined a creative, tentative solution for her very personal and quite particular 'wish list'. On a specific,'wish list' family scouting outing, the discovery of the the old mill beside the Cesana river in the lovely rural area of Colle di Buggiano enthralled all three members of her family. The ancient rock structures which formed the Mill complex had good bones but were in desperate need of a patient loving and definately 'workoholic' owner. In any case, it was though, indeed love at first sight! A family effort and the complete collaboration of her Italian father Giuseppe, Tuscan, born in Abetone in the Appenini mountains and her Canadian mother Donna, born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan enabled this young Italian gal, born in Milano, Italy and who passed her years of school at Lucca and first years in the working world in Florence, to become, at the age of 25 the proud owner of the old mill property with the qualification of a young Italian 'imprenditore'. The plan was, after serious restoring, renovation and the creation of a new swimming pool in what was originally the ancient Mill 'pond' along with beautiful surrounding gardens, to open a unique new vacation structure in the peaceful surroundings of the Cesana river valley and four acres of forest. A restful, romantic and elegant haven.

                      Why the Owner Chose Buggiano:
                      Although this property is only 8 km. from our home in Montecarlo, Lucca, we were not at all familiar with this fantastic little corner of our dear Tuscany. After dicovering the beauty and the nature of this area, so near to our home, during the family's 'wish list' search we decided, as a family, that we HAD to bring the Mill back to life, and that it would become a part of Jay's life and work for the future years to come.
