Description

A wonderful off grid rustic experience in a unique setting away from it all.

Molino di Sotto is a large stone built water mill, full of character in a special setting.

Recently renovated in a rustic style, the downstairs has a dining area and open plan kitchen, perfect for families or groups of up to ten people cooking and eating hearty breakfasts, ready to explore the Tuscan countryside.

The upstairs has three adjoining bedrooms. Two with double beds, and one with bunk bed and two single beds. There is also a private double bedroom on the ground floor. The bedding is flexible and can moved around to suit your requirements. The main bathroom with toilet is upstairs, plus there a separate shower room with toilet downstairs.

The Mill has an untouched, rural setting at the end of a rugged farm track, with a stream running alongside. The large outdoor dining area and BBQ is a very beautiful setting to enjoy al fresco evening meals surrounded by fireflies in candlelight.

The river Lanzo provides a cool watery dip. Electricity is solar powered, providing simple lighting and a few charging points, which makes it the perfect place to leave the world (and mobile reception) behind.

The nearby town of Paganico has a quaint square, coffee shop and one of the finest gelateria in Italy. The Mill is around 50 minutes drive to Siena, perfect to see the famous Palio di Siena. Other nearby attractions include the picturesque towns of Montepulciano and Pienza, cities of Pisa and Florence, natural springs, the beach and the mountains.

Rob and Carole Hasbury live in a cottage near the Mill and can offer as much or as little help with your stay as suits your needs, suggest best local places to visit, help with your BBQing adventures in the evening, or simply hand you the keys on arrival.

The Mill provides amazing access to the great outdoors. The river Lanzo boarders the garden which is great fun for splashing around and cooling off. It is place of natural tranquility perfect for yogo and meditation, setting by and relaxing. The Medow behind the Mill is great for playing games of Tennis or football etc. Cooking outside is a must and there is space and fuel provided.

Rob

Tuscany, Italy · Joined in July 2012

Rob and Carole Hasbury have been visiting Italy for months each summer to renovate a Mill House and Cottage near Paganico. They loved it so much they moved there permanently in 2012 and now rent out the Mill, which is finally finished!

They know and love the local area and can recommend tons of activities for every type of visitor, whether you're looking for mountain walks, cosmopolitan city trips, wine tasting or simply swimming in the clear rivers near the Mill property.

You will struggle to meet a more laid back and hospitable pair, that will mould around their visitors to suit their style.

Rob is also a Mountain Leader and an AAP for Duke of Edinburgh's Award, the Mill grounds are regularly used for camping by schools on their trips.
