Baldo’s house was the old watermill of the village of Corsagna, ancient medieval burg within the municipality of Borgo a Mozzano, located 360 meters above sea level, just 30 minutes drive from the city of Lucca and within driving distance of one of nature's most beautiful areas of Tuscany: the Garfagnana valley between the Alpi Apuane and the Apennino Tosco-Emiliano.The magnificent location on which the house stands affords splendid views: over the valleys, the village and the surrounding hills and mountains.
The house is dating back to XIX century, a part of the structure was used as a "mill" for the production of flour, shown by the “gora” (small artificial stream that once brought water to the mill wheel) still crossing the garden and another part was used as a "crusher" to produce local extra virgin olive oil, still visible “pressa” and the ancient stone wheel “molazza”.The entire structure has been wisely renovated by Baldo, grandson of Miche and Pia, while maintaining its original character: the external structure of the cottage has been left unchanged and renovating the interior spaces in faithful Tuscan style. Perfect for a holiday for up to 7 persons.
The property has a large garden (150 sqm ) crossed by the “gora”, small artificial stream that once brought water to the mill wheel, equipped with above ground pool (meters L4xL2H1), with barbecue, tables, chairs and sunbeds and a wide outdoor patio, in front of the main entrance, which is accessed from the entrance gate.
