Clearly the owners have invested much time and effort on their restoration project, and it seems to us they have struck a perfect balance between retaining the historical character and features of the property, while simultaneously incorporating modern essentials. Although the windy road leading up-then down- the mountain to access Il Mulino can be a little intimidating at first, this also adds to the dramatic setting of the property within the hills of the Garafagna region. The rich, dense vegetation and almost tropical canopy of trees made for dramatic landscapes and sometimes felt like we were on the set of Jurassic Park! Nevertheless, the abundant sunshine hit the pool and decking area around 9.00am each day and was good through to about 4pm. Wonderful sunrises and sunsets. The 4 bedrooms, two bathrooms, WC, kitchen, lounge and verandah area were all spotless, well maintained and fully functional. The property is about a 10 minute drive into the nearest village, another 5 minutes on to Pieve Fosciana, a small town with a couple of supermarkets, and about 40 minutes from Lucca. Pisa and Florence both within easy driving distance, but beware - Florence is closed on a Monday!! The house "manual" is an extremely useful document with some great tips. Local restaurants are fantastic, especially Il Pozzo in Pieve Fosciana, and up the mountain, Il Casone and Pensione Linda in particular - amazing food and great value. We had several email exchanges with Adele, the owner of the property prior to departure, and she could not have been more helpful and friendly. We spent 3 wonderful weeks at Il Mulino and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. We look forward to returning at some point in the future. Frank & Lesley.

                                                                                          This 'mercato' at Carpineta in the Garfagnana was a lovely place to stay; remote from the tourist trail, high on a hillside, in walking distance of the charming village of Castiglione di Gargagnana, with tremendous views across the Serchio valley to the towering Apuan Alps - a view of which we could never tire. The outdoor terrace is spacious and excellent - we spent most of our time out there or in the superbly maintained swimming pool. The bedroom was very spacious and comfortable. The shower appears a bit cramped, but in fact is not so - and all is very clean and well-maintained. There is a great nearby restaurant, 'Il Pozzo' at Pieve Fosciano, which we can also strongly recommend. The immediate surroundings of the house are delightful - fir and chestnut trees, olives and figs. There is a lot of bird life, including the occasional eagle overhead, and we saw deer in the fields by the house on several occasions. Emanuele and his wife, the owners, were charming and friendly, and can recommend many good nearby trips out. We can thoroughly recommend this house, having stayed in many self-catering places in Tuscany, and also found it very good value for money.
