Originally a mill house with adjoining tobacco drying tower, the restored Casa Molino features ceilings with exposed wood beams or barrel vaulting and terracotta tiled floors throughout. The kitchen is designed for modern convenience rather than purely rustic charm, the dining area has a lovely open fireplace and the whole house has a comfortable home from home appeal. The shaded wisteria covered terrace and thick stone walls keep the interior cool in summer. The swimming pool is of ample size and features an intermittent gentle current against which one can swim on the spot! There is also a gazebo and terrace with benches and table above the swimming pool.
Casa Molino is larger than it looks at first as it is built on a slope in a quiet valley setting so that from the pool only two floors are visible but there are in fact three! It will accommodate up to five with ease so is ideal for couples or a family, having exclusive use of the house and swimming pool. On the ground floor there is a spacious sitting room with an arch through to the kitchen with dining table and fireplace. Both rooms open onto the shaded terrace along the length of the house. A wide spiral staircase leads to a hall with access to the twin aspect single bedroom, bathroom and a lovely large room, again with dual views, and two queen sized beds. On the top floor is a large double bedroom with panoramic view across and along the valley.
The nearest village, San Leo Bastia, about three kilometres away, has a great pizzeria, a couple of bars and shops with other good restaurants and facilities nearby. Cortona is the nearest hilltop gem, eighteen kilometres over the hills, while Città di Castello and Perugia are within easy reach. Gubbio, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno and Arezzo are not far off whilst Urbino, Florence, Siena are also accessible. Make day trips, tour as you wish, soak up the arts and culture, festivals, cuisine or relax by the pool in quiet Tuscan countryside – a perfect recipe for a great holiday break!
