About the Property
Apartment, 2 double Bedrooms + Convertible single bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
IL MULINO is located in a lovely scenic hills about 12 kilometers from the most picturesque city of Lucca.
The main apartment accommodates 5 people perfectly, with 2 double bedrooms, and a day bed in the living room.
Bedroom one has a full size double bed, bedroom two has 2 single beds that we specially designed to attach and become one large king size bed. There are 2 large full bathrooms with tiled shower rooms and modern plumbing.
The living room has a comfortable sofa, upholstered chairs and day bed, large flat-screen TV, DVD and satellite TV, and fireplace. There is an adjacent dining room and full kitchen.
The interiors have the restored with hand-made terra cotta floors and chestnut beamed ceilings, with charming antique furnishings and comfortable beds, all new plumbing, electrical systems and new appliances, including a laundry.
The MULINO rests on its own bridge, in its own valley, with a bubbling brook that runs beneath the house.
We have outdoor table, chairs and lounge chairs for relaxing in the areas next to the brook.
The bridge in front is also a long terrace spanning the house with table and chairs, which enables you to dine outside.
The view in the front of the house is the brook and the church of Tofori which sits prominently on the hill in front of us. A short walk to the top of our driveway opens to a view of the olive groves, and vineyards.
The village of Segromigno, about 3 kilometers down the hill, has all services such as a pharmacy, post office, supermarket, weekly and fruit/vegetable market.
We are on-site owners (English and Italian speaking) and live in an attached apartment for any needs you may have.
If you haven't visited the Lucca area, you will find it to be a pleasant surprise. There are classical music and highlights of the Puccini operas, every night in the church of San Giovanni, now converted to a concert hall. (All of this, because Lucca is the birthplace of opera composer, Giacomo Puccini.) Summer brings the music festivals with the famous stars such as Eric Clapton, Peter Gabriel, Elton John, to name a few, and of course, more Puccini opera.
IL MULINO is centrally located for convenient day trips to Lucca (15 minutes), Pisa and the sea-side beaches of Viareggio (40 minutes), Montecatini, the famous spa town,(20 minutes). We are about 45 minutes by car from Florence, or you can drive your car to a nearby train station and from there, it is a pleasant hour by train to the Florence station in the center of town, thereby avoiding traffic and parking problems. About an hour and 15 minutes from Siena and the Cinque Terre. There are several small lovely restaurants among the vineyards nearby for a relaxing dinner after a day's travels.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: My mother grew up in our Lucca area and went to the USA when she was young. Since my childhood, I returned to visit my grandparents and cousins. On one such visit, I brought my new husband, Doug to meet these relatives and by chance, saw this incredible house, yet sadly in need of restoration. We were stunned by the position of the house, set on its own bridge with a stream running underneath from the hillside woodlands. This historic home built in 1650, was once the olive and grain mill of the noble Villa Torrigiani. Our country views are the hillside woodlands and the bubbling brook, flowing from the hilltop under our house, which is set on its own bridge. We purchased the house spontaneously, based on this amazing position of the house. It is said to be a one-of-a-kind in Tuscany. Carefully restored over the years, we have 2 apartments for guests. Ask us about our fixed-priced all-inclusive, worry-free Culinary Tours of Tuscany. No need to rent a car or find your way. We collect you at the Pisa or Florence airports or train stations and guide you many of the scenic sights of Tuscany from Cinque Terre to Chianti country, complete with wine tasting luncheons and cookery courses. Contact us for itinerary details. Minimum 6 persons.
