Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Immersed in a small village in the Tuscan countryside only 7 km from Lucca.

HISTORY

The structure dates back to the 1600’s and according to the stories handed down for generations it was originally a convent. With time it became a place for the selection and storage of the local rice crop. A plaque on the front of the building testifies to this. From generation to generation it acquired various transformations and during the last century part of the structure became a flour mill, evidenced by the large and picturesque iron wheel that still exists behind the house. Another part of the structure was used as an olive press to produce the local extra virgin olive oil.

The apartment on the ground floor has been restored maintaining the existing features of the olive press still present today. Inside the apartment there is an old piece of machinery which was used to press the olives and in the floor covered by a glass panel you can see the terra cotta container to preserve the freshly pressed olive oil. Also visible are the original supporting arches of the old structure.

The original “stone machinery” that was used to press the olives has been placed in the garden.

EXISTING

The apartment has 2 bedrooms, one bathroom and one large room used as a living room and dining area.

The property is comfortably furnished with new and restored antique furniture and keeping in tune with the original look.

An exterior dining area is available just outside the entrance door. There is also a large garden to have meals and relax enjoying the beautiful countryside.

The garden is private only for the apartment G & G MILL

Wonderful apartment close to beautiful Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks at Gina & Gino's Mill. The property was clean, spacious and provided everything we needed for our stay. The location was perfect for visiting lots of different areas of Tuscany. The garden was a great bonus in which to relax in the heat of the day. We enjoyed cooking in the apartment as well as visiting a local restaurant, bar and the wonderful ice cream shop Pappa Grappa.We cannot thank Cristina enough for her help after we were involved in an accident, she was the perfect host and we will not hesitate in recommending this property to friends and family, We love Lucca and the surrounding area and I am sure we will return again one day. Thank you so much Cristina, it was lovely to meet and talk with you.You went out of your way to help and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, x Sharon and Ron

Lifetime Dream Italian Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have dreamed for many years of spending a prolonged vacation in Italy and were pleased and excited to reserve the Old G & G Mill. We fell in love with the property at first sight and could not believe it was actually more attractive and "homey" than the photos indicated. Dealing with Cristina from start to finish was a joy. Upon arrival we were somewhat tired and frankly, got lost. No problem for Cristina who answered our call immediately, drove to our location and escorted us to the apartment where a delicious snack of Italian delicacies awaited. We also enjoyed meeting her parents and will long remember our half-English, half-Italian conversations. Lucca was our "base of operation" for our six (6) weeks stay. The property was clean and well-maintained and its location perfect, proximate enough to Lucca to visit frequently (my wife loved the markets!), and while comfortably quiet in a bucolic setting, very close to all of the major highways in the area, allowing travel throughout central and northern Italy to be convenient and effortless. When we first arrived we were not quite sure what we would do for 6 weeks; after being there for 3 weeks we looked at each other one day and agreed we could stay for a year. Close by are numerous wonderful restaurants, a wide variety of grocery stores and the best gelato (PappaGrappa) we found anywhere in Italy (and we sampled many!).

We recommend this property to all and will be sure to be there ourselves if the opportunity arises.

Charming home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the highlight of our month in Italy! We spent three wonderful weeks in this charming and unique home. Cristina was a joy to work with from the very beginning of my search to the end of our trip. Her parents, Ansano and Brunetta were helpful and friendly. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his visits with Ansano, speaking Italian and learning about the history of the mill and his family. The apartment was clean and well stocked with all the necessities. We enjoyed sitting in the garden with a glass of wine after our day trips to Cinque Tere, Viareggio, Pisa, Lucca, and Florence. A Supermarket and bank with ATM just down the street. Il Gattino Bianco and Irma were two local restaurants with wonderful food. I hope to return soon to G&G Mill, it will be like coming home! Thank you for a wonderful stay. I will tell everyone I know about this special place!

Better than we even imagined!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is among the best values we found during our three weeks in Italy. The apartment and village were even more charming and better furnished than we expected. Cristina and her family were extremely gracious hosts. The location is ideal, close enough to Lucca, Pisa, the beach, the autoestrade, yet in a quiet village offering a unique Italian experience away from other tourists. We also enjoyed the restaurant Gattina Bianca and certainly recommend it. We hope to come back some day.

Thank you for such an awesome experience.

Slice of Heaven in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy and fortunate to have stayed at your flat. Everything was as described, but even better. It was very roomy and clean, a welcome haven at the end of our daily jaunts. It's location is central to so many cities. I would also recommend eating at an amazing restaurant down the road, Il Gattino Bianco. Cristina's parents were very nice and helpful. We were sorry to have to go!

Don't miss this hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples traveling from the Amalfi coast to Venice and back to Rome. We selected G&G Mill based on it's location to take our daytrips to Cinque Terre, Carrera (for the mable quarry), Pisa, Florence and, of course, spending a whole day in the walled city of Lucca which turned into a real highlight in itself. Food, highway, and restaurants were available in close proximity. Christina was delightful and very helpful. The apartment was spotless and well equipped. It did get a little cool the first couple of days and the heat was not available. Christina however, came down with extra balnkets for the nights and the sunshine took care of the days. The accomodations were truly unique, as the furnishings played a part in the history of the building and the businesses it was involved in. I would not hesitate to recommend G&G Mill to travelers and hope to return again sometime
