Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, and 1 bathroom, sleeping 3 + 1 WIFI

Beautiful, romantic and recently restored detached stone cottage, situated in extensive gardens bordering a stream.

The house is cosy, and perfect for two with a galleried bedroom, although there is a further single bedroom too reached via the main bedroom. There is a log fire, terracotta tiled floors, and beamed ceilings throughout. There is also a sofabed. WIFI at E25 per week.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has a real country feel. Outside, there is a large 500 sq metre garden bordering a trout stream, which is an ideal fishing/swimming spot for both adults and children, an eating terrace with wonderful views, and a BBQ. The Mill boasts a private pool of 9m x 4.5m

A truly rural location but less than 2 km from the nearest village, and 6 km from market town of Castelnuovo with its famous Thursday morning markets. Perfect walking & touring base - Lucca 1 hr; Barga 20 min.; Florence 1 2/4 hr.; coast 1 hr.

The area: A perfect opportunity to explore the real Italy, and holiday away from the madding crowds of popular Tuscany. The area is totally unspoilt and non commercialised, and benefits from fantastic scenery all year round.

Fishing in the area is excellent, or why not swim in the rivers, picnic in the mountain air, watch the local past tomes of bocce and cheese throwing for which the area is famous?

Touring the hundreds of hill top villages where time has stood still, is also a wonderfully relaxing way to pass the day, topped by a glass of wine on the terrace, admiring the views in the evening.

For a townie, day, then Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Barga are not far away, and Castelnuovo with its many restaurants bars, outdoor swimming pool, station and famous market is only a 10 minute drive.

Cuisine: The Garfagnanan cuisine is quite simple, but extremely tasty, with most dishes prepared from the freshest of local ingredients.

Eating out is cheap, since restaurants tend to cater for the locals, and you can easily find a 3 course lunch with local wine, cheeses, and coffee for around £5 per head!

Children are very welcome in restaurants...

The only restriction you will find is a lack of menu in some restaurants, but the locals will do their best with sign language!

Ein traumhaftes Plätzchen in der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit in Al Mulin del Isola. Das Haus verfügt über alle benötigte Ausstattung in einem tadellosen Zustand. Das ganze Haus, wie auch das Grundstück und der Pool sind sehr gepflegt und die Lage direkt am Fluss ist wirklich zauberhaft.

Der Vermieter war unglaublich zuvorkommen, hilfsbereit und freundlich und hat somit auch dazu beigetragen das wir einen herrlichen Urlaub in der Toskana verbracht haben.

Wir kommen garantiert wieder!

Romantic ,charming getaway

  • 5 of 5

Romantic ,charming getaway set in the Tuscany hillside, we stayed here for two weeks and loved every second, there is plenty to do and see around the area but you really won't want to leave this charming mill and its beautiful gardens. we have used owners direct for many years and this is one of the best equipped properties we've stayed in. The owners are so warm and welcoming and can't do enough to help you enjoy your stay, can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Fantastic to hear you loved this place. You are right, although there is lots to explore it is difficult to tear yourselves away from the garden and pool! Fabio and Elisa send their best wishes and hope to see you again. Thanks. Lorraine at tuscan-retreats

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Al Mulin del Isola was perfect! We liked the location very much. A big nice maintained garden with a great pool, a little river nearby. Very quiet, even a dear passed by!

The house was also great! A nice well equipped kitchen, a cosy living room, a very large bedroom with great beds, a clean and convinient bathroom with a shower.

Our daughter slept in the open room you have to pass when you to to the bathroom. It was okay for us but it would be even be more perfect for her to hang a curtain overtreden to avoid the light when someone passed by.

When we arrived there was a great welcome with some first needs, a nice bottle of wine, flowers at the tables, everything was been thougt of. That mades us feel special.

Service was absolutely great! We hope to come again and enjoy an other stay at Il Mulin.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and fantastic to hear you had a wonderful stay and loved the house, garden and river as well as the welcome touches provided by the owner. We will pass on your suggestion re an internal curtain for when you pass to the bathroom. The large bedroom you mention is being refurbished for 2017 with lighter furniture and possibly a 4 poster bed so will be even nicer than now , and there will also be a new sofa to update the living room a little so the house will be even better if you do return as suggested. Fabio and Elisa would love to see you again. Lorraine at

Delightful property

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at this converted water mill and were very pleased with our stay. It is well situated in a peaceful location with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. We particularly liked the swimming pool in the garden and also the very nearby river swimming. The cottage was well equipped and had sitting areas all around with sun or shade. We would most certainly stay here again. It is in a beautiful area of northern Tuscany and well worth visiting.
