About the property

A restored mill, fashion, history, modern comfort for 10-12, close to Fivizzano

La Cascata / The Mill is a historic former water mill located in Northern Tuscany, Italy, adjacent to the village of Verrucola di Fivizzano in the Lunigiana region, known as the 'land of 100 medieval castles' and also the 'land of the moon'. It is situated adjacent to an attractive waterfall in a beautiful unspoilt area, as yet undiscovered by the tourist masses. Its setting gives the mill a distinctive character and feel and its location provides particular opportunities for photographers and painters.

The Mill has been restored to highest modern standards. It is on two levels, with two apartments but it is usually rented as a unique unit during JUly and August (please just ask for quotation for single apartments during rest of the year) . Four large bedrooms (sleeping in total 11 guests + 1 baby) offer a perfect accomodation for a group of friends or two families!

The location is fantastic, in a quiet corner but at 10 minutes walking from the town of Fivizzano, where all services can be found: bar, restaurants (there is actually a good restaurant just across the road!), ATM, all shops, supermarket.... The view over the old Castle of the Verrucole is stunning and the mountains around us are part of a National Park of the Appennines, offering a wide choice of trail and trekking itineraries.

In winter, the sky resort of Cerreto Laghi is only 20 minutes away, and in summer the sandy beaches of Versilia are at 40 minutes driving.

One strong point of The Mill is the natural pool that is formed by the stream once used for the mill work. Care should be taken with young children as the waterfall and stream are easily accessible from the Mill.

The water is fresh and clear, the kids will love to play at river banks and the air around is also fresh and pleasant even in the hottest summer day.

The courtyard offers more than one relax corner, with chairs, table, deckchairs, sun umbrellas. a BBq is at your disposal.

A small piece of paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at The Mill! This place was a perfect getaway for our family of 5. The kids played for hours in the stream catching tadpoles as we relaxed to the sound of the cascading waterfall. The apartment was perfectly furnished with everything you could possibly need. Close walk to restaurants and cafes. We will definitely be back to stay at this hidden gem!

Rundum zufrieden!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 8 Personen und haben das ganze Haus gemietet. Sogar für Toskana ist es wild-romantisch gelegen. Auf der anderen Straßenseite ist liegt ein Schloss und oberhalb des Hauses ein verfallener Turm. Das Haus ist von der Straße nur über (kurzen) Fußweg zu erreichen. Dafür ist man ganz unter sich beim Grillen und Feiern. Man hat viel Platz um und im Haus und lebt über 3 Stockwerke verteilt mit 3 getrennten Ess- und Kochbereichen (reichlich ausgestattet, eins davon ausreichend groß für 8 Personen). Die dicken Mauern schützen vor Hitze, man füllt sich wie im Schloss, aber mit moderner Einrichtung. Das kleine Restaurant im Schloss gegenüber ist preiswert und sehr zu empfehlen (z.B. Steak Fiorentina). Wir haben uns dort rundum wohl gefüllt, auch dank der freundlichen und zuvorkommenden Betreuung durch Francesca und Paolo. Wir werden gerne wieder kommen!
