To the' Ai Torchi Vecchi' (the meaning of the name of this place is:'to the old presses') is one of the most striking corners, which is in the valley of the river Rosaro in Lunigiana, in the north-west part of Tuscany. It is perhaps the most ancient mill system. The complex included three adjacent mills,at present one of them has been restructured and changed into a two-floor habitation of about 500mq. You can still find the ancient handmade stone presses now integrated in the furnishing and all of this really creates a very special place. Immersed in the greenery with just the sound of the river, isolated,it is very cool in the summer period. 'Ai Torchi Vecchi' is the ideal place for lovers of nature and and tranquility.

MARTA LENCI purchased this Villa in 1996
Why MARTA LENCI chose Fivizzano
We found “Ai Torchi Vecchi” by chance looking for a place for a picnic on a hot summer’s day It was love at first sight for those old walls invaded by brambles and sound of the river. Even today, when we go there it renews the feeling of being out of touch and time. It is always exciting to revive an abandoned place! We have worked many years for this. We are very happy with the results and to share them with our guests. The photographs are not effective enough, the feeling that you are coming to “Ai Torchi Vecchi”, can not be reproduced either with pictures or words. The surrounding landscape is not the best known part of Tuscany, but there are many small medieval villages and forests. The people are friendly and a vacation here is ideal if you want to rest and relax.
What makes this Villa unique
“Ai Torchi Vecchi” is perhaps the most ancient mill system in the area ,how one imagines from the very beautiful pedestrian bridge of medieval origin, all made of stone which crosses the river and separates it still from the nearby village of Posara. On the property the water-level mark and the tracks of where the water used to run under the mill are still very visible. You can still find the ancient handmade stone presses now integrated in the furnishing of the house and all of this really creates a very special place. Immersed in the greenery with just the sound of the river, isolated, it is very cool in the summer.

Entspannte Tage am Pool
Das Anwesen entspricht der Beschreibung voll und ganz. Ausreichend Platz für 2 Familien. Unsere Woche war sehr heiß, so dass wir sehr viel Zeit am Pool verbracht haben. Ein oder zwei Sonnenschirme mehr wären bei dem großen Pool noch schöner gewesen. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig direkt an einem Fluss. Die Matratzen waren für unseren Geschmack etwas zu hart. In allen Zimmern waren Mückenstecker vorhanden. Der Ansprechpartner vor Ort war stets hilfsbereit. Alles in allem ein wunderschöner, erholsamer Aufenthalt.
Many thanks for your review.
I am sorry if the beds seemed hard to you, unfortunately it is not easy to please everyone!
Super séjour en famille
Quelle merveille! La rénovation de ce vieux moulin est sublime alliant contemporain et ancien , faite avec énormément de goût nous avons tous adoré.
Nous avons été accueillis avec une belle corbeille de fruits et du vin local.
Endroit idéal pour se ressourcer en famille près de la rivière et dans un immense parc.
Seul bémol 2 jours avec un problème d'eau chaude qui a été finalement résolu et un manque de luminosité dans l'espace cuisine ainsi qu'au dessus de la table repas extérieure.
Dommage que la piscine ne soit pas bâchée la température de l'eau était fraîche et notre semaine d'août caniculaire mais les enfants et les courageux ont pu en profiter.
Excellent séjour qui a ressources toute la famille .
Thank you very much for your review.
We will try to face with the few luminosity in the kitchen and in the outside area where is the table. I am really sorry if the water seemed cold to you, I think that this could be a sensation due to the high temperature ( 37°-39°)that we registered this summer. The water of the swimming pool,during July and August has always been around 29-30 degrees. This difference could be the reason why the water seemed cold.
God - kan klart anbefales.
