Conveniently located just 40 minutes from Pisa airport, the Mulino is an authentic water mill dating from the 17th century, completely renovated in 2005/6 to become a luxurious holiday home with picturesque views of the hills of Lucca and its own stream. Plumbing, electricity and central heating are all new, as is the large pool (12x6m). Five double bedrooms and three large bedrooms have been created and filled with antique furniture and beds with new quality mattresses. The ancient tree-trunk sized beams and terracotta tiles have been preserved and an ancient aquaduct that brought water to the mill until 1978 sill stands in the 4,500m (1 acre) garden. The house is cool in summer thanks to the thick walls. The kitchen is spacious - we love to cook ourselves - and equipped to a high standard. The Mulino is 12 km from the walls of Lucca and 6 km from the A11 Lucca-Florence motorway, taking you to Florence in 50 minutes. Pisa is 40 minutes away. Siena about 1-1/2 hours.
How accessible is the property?: The property is on the first and second floors of an old mill. To access the property you have to climb a flight of stone steps. It is therefore not suitable for people in wheelchairs.
Is a car essential?: To get to the property initially you would need to take a taxi or have your own car, and once there it is handy to have a car to get around and see the sights. However, you can satisfy many of your local needs locally, walking 5 minutes to the shop, the bus to town and 10 minutes to the local restaurant and pizzeria. Also, we provide bicycles for you to get to the next pizzeria and the tennis courts.
Is it close to the beach? It takes about 45 minutes realistically to get to the popular Italian beaches of Marina di Pisa, Viareggio, Lido di Camaiore and Marina di Pietrasanta.

Located 12 km south of Lucca, surrounded by olive groves, it's an ideal base from which to combine culture with comfortable accommodation amid calm, scenic surroundings. The village Pieve di Compito is in the 'Compitese' - an area famous for its produce, particularly its olive oil. The terrain is relatively flat and wooded, flanked by picturesque mountains and crossed by streams, making it ideal for walking and biking. Pieve, togheter with its sister village Sant'Andrea di Compito, is the 'village of camelias' - it hosts the annual camelia fair in springtime, attracting horticulturalists and amateur gardeners from as far afield as Japan. Five minutes' walk from the property is a village shop with good local produce and local wines. Bus service to Lucca at 100m. Supermarket at 3km. The local tennis courts are at 1.5km. The nearby villages are nice to visit. It is 20 minutes to Lucca, under 1 hour to Florence, 35 minutes to Pisa and just over 1 hour to Volterra, San Gimignano and Sien

Why the Owner Chose Capannori LU, Italy:
We have always liked the Lucca area. We first visited for a wedding in 1992. The mill itself is ancient and authentic. It was built back in the 1690s. yet it has only ever had three sets of owners, including ourselves. It is in a beautiful rural setting, yet not too cut off from amenities and people. The immediate area is flat and suited to cycling and walking, while the mountains are closeby and form a nice backdrop for the garden.
