Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Sansepolcro - molino meocci

spacious, comfortable, w portico, bread oven, 2 living rms - 3/ 4 bedroom house

Lovingly restored C18th watermill in a tranquil rural location where foothills of Alpe de la Luna meet Upper Tiber Valley. Hillside location with vineyards, olive groves and wooded ridges, Molino Meocci offers a fantastic base for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers. Adjoining stream, the portico and deck look out over waterfall. 2 min walk to rockpools. You can rent just the upper level(3 bedrms)or the whole house,allowing a degree of independence with 2 bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms, each having woodstove and views of waterfall.

Both levels have their own entrance, with shaded outdoor portico and deck/ pergola entrance. The vicintiy is very quiet, but not isolated. A pleasant 20 min stroll to San Giustino, a tiny town with a choice of restaurants, shops and cafes, you can reach historic hill towns in a short drive (10 to 30 min)and the lovely medieval walled Sansepolcro in 10 mins drive - with market, cinema and a rich selection of shops and fantastic restaurants. The town of San Giustino is on main routes, making Molino the perfect base for visiting Florence,Siena, Arezzo,Urbino, Gubbio,Lake Trasimeno, Perugia and the Adriatic Coast.

Beautiful outdoor pool nearby in Sansepolcro (10 minutes by car).

Next to the house is the gentle Vertola stream (tributary of Tiber)and clear smooth rock pools which can be used for bathing. The mill feels at one with nature, yet close to a delightful choice of cultural, historical and culinary amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a lovely old mill in a tranquil area. Good walking from the front door - even better with a car to nearby (and further away) marked trails. Local towns such as Arezzo, Apuglia, Citta di Castello etc all gorgeous and friendly. Pizza oven by the terrace is great fun - remember to use semolina on the paddle to make it easier to put pizzas into and out of oven.

We will send you a map in time for your departure, showing which road to take from San Giustino.

The foothills of the Alpe della Luna descend to the upper Tiber valley around our little valley, and the landscape on the doorstep is beautiful, with olive groves and vineyards, cypress trees and sunflower fields. Footpaths lead up through the wooded hills, passing occasional small traditional farms, which produce the wonderful natural ingredients that make the local cuisine so renowned. Locally grown food is celebrated in the nearby towns where you can join the traditional festivals of chestnuts, truffles, wine and chocolate.

You can walk down to San Giustino, the local town in the valley - it's small, well provided and very friendly - there are few overseas visitors, and the way of life is traditional. There are at least 4 traditional wood-fired pizzerias in the centre.

Cycling is very popular, there are roads in the hills and mountains that are both quiet and breathtaking, and both the closest towns have professional cycle workshops.

Piero della Francesca's home town Sansepolcro is 5 km away - an exquisite medieval walled town in the fertile Tiber valley, where lace-making, archery, flag-throwing and medieval crafts are celebrated in the annual festival. There is also an annual chamber music festival, when concerts are given in the medieval churches. Sansepolcro also has a very large open air swimming pool set in a wooded garden, just 10 mins drive away, where it is easy to spend the entire day (June to September)

Cinema 'sotto le stelle' takes place on summer evenings in the centre of Sansepolcro, where you will find a fine selection of restaurants. The evening passegiata can be appreciated beforehand, with an aperitif or coffee in the bars on the corso. Weekly markets are held in most of the towns.

Michelangelo's birthplace is in the lovely nearby hill town of Caprese di Michelangelo (annual chestnut festival) which is also close to La Verna, the amazing monastery founded by St Francis

A choice of hill towns can be reached within 10 - 30 mins drive - Anghiari, Citerna, Monterchi, Montone.

Days out in Urbino, Florence, Gubbio, Perugia (jazz and chocolate festivals) and Arezzo, which has a monthly antiques festival in its streets and piazzas.

Hiking trails in quiet mountains on the doorstep are perfect for birdwatching and enthusiasts of wildlife. Cycling is very popular.

Horseriding nearby.
