The
Experience

In a bucolic valley edged with woods so peaceful you could hear a pin drop lies this ancient water mill, its inner workings carefully preserved through the creative use of thick glass and clever lighting. Much of the furniture has been brought from England and the English country-house feel is enhanced by some horsey paintings (a reminder of Lulu’s past as a point-to-pointer) alongside the traditional arches, beams and cotto floors so typical of rural Italy. Bedrooms are simple and comfortable, the bathrooms spotless and traditional. The treehouse in the lawned garden is heaven for children, and not so bad for the grown ups either – watch your energetic little ones clambering about while you enjoy an aperitivo on the wisteria covered terrace. Rustle something up in the practical kitchen then dine out here, too; as night falls and the stream is lit up, you’ll be hard pressed to think of anywhere you’d rather be. But go out you must, particularly as Sansepolcro, birthplace of Renaissance genius Piero della Francesca, is a ten-minute drive. Arezzo with its lively, monthly antiques market is not much further.

Reviews

Lovely location and wonderful relaxing atmosphere. The area is great for long walks, dining and wine tasting around Arezzo. There is the monthly antique market too which is divine. The area is full of surprises and wonderful restaurants. Highly recommended

Suzanne

We had a truly wonderful 10 days at Il Molino - it is the perfect place to rest, relax & unwind; and yes you can almost hear a pin drop it is so tranquil! Only a few minutes away, Anghiari ( rated one of Italy's most beautiful villages) lived up to its reputation-providing us with excellent restaurants, shopping & plenty of sightseeing- views from the walls of this 'village' are spectacular. Lulu ( owner) was an excellent host & looked after us perfectly. The 'mill' is well appointed & furnished - immaculately presented for our arrival by Lulu with a welcome 'pack' to boot - go there - a must!

Local points of interest from Lulu Primavera

  • The ancient Town of Anghiari is only 2kms away and is one of the most beautiful historical towns in Tuscany. It has a weekly market on Wednesday and many little restaurants and bars to explore.
  • Arezzo is the main Town and only a 20' drive away. It is famous for the monthly Antiques market held every first weekend of each month. Said to be one of the best in the whole of Italy. It also boasts many shops, museums and wonderful restaurants.
  • Sansepolcro is the birthplace of Piero della Francesca so for those of you wanting a bit of culture they have certainly come to the right area. Nearby Monterchi also houses the famous painting of the Modonna del parto
  • In nearby Arezzo region and Valdarno there are many Cantinas open for wine tasting. This region has excellent wine and is definitely worth knowing about..
  • Florence is an hours drive away or you can catch the train from Arezzo. Here you are spoilt for choice with the famous exhibits by Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci not to mention Uffizzi Gallery with its amazing collection of art.
  • Walking in the area is a must with all the footpaths reopend in the nearby National Park Rognosi. Every track has a story and there are local restaurants to rest on the way and take a break with outstanding views.
