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.
