"Ai Torchi Vecchi" Ancient Mill on the river,Tuscany .Very Private , Very Quiet

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Private pool, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, mq.15,000 of garden

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“The property is very spacious and full of rustic character yet the kitchen facilities and the bathrooms are modern. The swimming pool and BBQ areas are well thought out and excellent. The children loved the pool, the river and the table tennis and the freedom to roam about and explore. This is a very well maintained property.”

Boligen er perfekt til flere familier. Der er meget atmosfære i de gamle møllerum og ejerne har gennemtænkt ferieboligen med gode detaljer. Pool og skyggefulde teresser er med til at gøre boligen perfekt for ferien.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

“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.
