After spending year after year in the South of France we decided to look for something different. The Mill was simply fantastic,equipped with everything you could possibly need.The views were amazing,our daughter said she felt like a Princess living at the top of a castle.We also thought we had fallen in to a fairytale.Sitting at the stone table in the evening with a glass of wine listening out for any animals which were in the area together with the river flowing by was one of the many highlights.The waterfall which was only a two minute walk from the mill (still inside the the beautifull gardens) was a delight and swimming in the pool below it was wonderfull. Even although it was high season we still had the pool to ourselves 95% of the time.
We arrived with the idea that we would have a day in Florence,San Marino etc, but we soon agreed that we did not want to go very far away from the mill. Badia Teldada a 5 minute drive away had everything we needed bakers Butchers etc.
The Sunday lunch at l erbhosteria in Rofelle is an experience not to be missed.
This was booked for us by the mills owners Angela and Maurice who lived close by and were easy to find if you needed help or advice on the area.This is a place we hope to visit again.It suits couples and familys with kids very well.
We had a fantastic stay the house is really well equipped and beautifully renovated .We were three family's , the pool was an obvious hit but we had great fun cooking pizzas in the outside pizza oven and the covered sitting area works brilliantly with the location of the pool , house and lounges . The restaurant at the bottom of the hill to which you can walk to was perfect ,everything you want for an authentic Italian experience . The antipasta were delicious as was all the other rustic fare provided . The two villages nearby were great for a drink or pizza . There are plenty of walking trails and mountain bike routes and you can hire bikes in Appechio which has a useful tourist information centre which can sort out canyoning , climbing etc if you are feeling more adventurous .
To us it felt like bygone holidays in France from years ago , rural and unspoilt but with a thriving local population .
