20 July 2004- A glorious holiday, fantastic location. Thank you so much for a wonderful time. We had a very good holiday in this fantastic house With greetings from Iceland.

31 Aug 2004 - We have been in so many villas throughout our holidays, but we have never been in a villa like this one so perfectly equipped. You can simply live here for as long as you desire without needing anything except shopping for food. The scenery and the view are outstanding. We all enjoyed it a great deal and we are coming back and will definitely recommend it .

More Comments 2005: July 2005 We have been looking forward to these 2 weeks for a year and they did not disappoint! What a wonderful house ,pool and setting -the kids have had the time of their lives, whether swimming DVDs or toys and games. Look out for all the wildlife especially the fireflies and the friends in the pool!

Aug 2005 A truly stunning property, cannot fault this house it has provided us with a fabulous 2 weeks, pool is gorgeous.

Aug 2005 A wonderful villa in a stunning position. Everything you need is here - certainly kept our clan busy for 2 weeks. Thank you for providing everything - a real ¨home from home¨.

Aug 2006 Thank you so much for the fab 2 weeks. Never before have we stayed in a house so well equipped .

Aug/Sept 2006 We didnt venture out much except to Lucca and Pisa. Preferred Lucca -less touristy and just as much to see and you can hire bikes. Take the train from Castelnuovo to Lucca. The village above the house is worth the walk to just for the view

Il Mulino is a quiet villa overlooking the Garfagnana Valley, it is in the village of Silicano. The population is only a few hundred but is a lively village with a local shop which is the centre of the village and a great place to by fresh bread fruit vegetables etc and is generally very well stocked. As it is used mainly by the locals it is a great place to be part of village life and practice your Italian. Silicano is 10-15 minutes from the old walled town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. It is a traditional Italian town not spoilt by tourists, with a local market on Thursdays, many bars and cafes in true Italian style and many organised events during the summer months. There are many shops and restaurants in the town. The town of Lucca is only 45 minutes to one hour away by car. Pisa one and a half hours away and Florence 2 hours
