About Adele Bright
My father grew up in this small hamlet in Tuscany before leaving for America in the 1950's. When we had a young family we had the chance to buy the old Mill and Mill House which were derelict by the 1990's and restore many of the original features and for us it became a family project, uncovering layers of family history.
Adele Bright purchased this House in 1995
Why Adele Bright chose Province of Lucca
The Mill and Mill House were the centre of community life in the area for generations. My great-great grandparents were the millers here in the 1880's and the properties stayed in the family until the 1980's. We rescued them from dereliction and again they have become an important part of the history of the village. Many of the locals have helped us to bring these important buildings back to life over many years.
What makes this House unique
We have maintained all of the original features of the buildings and the Mill still has all of the original mill stones and hoppers in its own little museum. The original chestnut beams and floors have been sanded and waxed, and new and old furniture has been chosen to complement the character of the houses. This is a real chance to explore an undiscovered corner of Tuscany.
