Converted Mill apartments for holiday rental in Tuscany

Dimora alla Cascata is a historic former water mill located in Northern Tuscany, Italy, adjacent to the medieval village of Verrucola di Fivizzano in the Lunigiana region, known as the 'land of 100 medieval castles'. Dimora alla Cascata is situated adjacent to an attractive waterfall in a beautiful unspoilt area, as yet undiscovered by the tourist masses. Its setting gives the mill a distinctive character and feel and its location provides particular opportunities for photographers and painters.

The view along the stream framed by the stone arch of the bridge is a delight. It has a sense of well-being and peace and a magic all of its own which is impossible to capture on film yet is just 10 minutes walk away from the traditional market town of Fivizzano.

Dimora alla Cascata is available as a vacation rental and provides rustic, homely accommodation for 13 guests plus a baby. Dimora alla Cascata has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms over 3 levels and can be rented as a whole or as three separate units. The apartments are well equipped and spacious and each have a private terrace.

The Mill was constructed some time in the 1700s but unfortunately fell into ruin during the last century and there is little evidence left now of its former use. The owner, Lindsay, acquired Dimora alla Cascata over 17 years ago and her family converted and lovingly restored the Mill, initially as a family home and then for the enjoyment of guests, whilst retaining its historic character and setting within the local Conservation area.

The location of Dimora alla Cascata is perfect for exploring the region on foot and for easy day trips to many popular destinations including the Versillian coast and the famous Cinque Terra, ski resorts and the cultural centres of Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Parma and Milan besides the opportunity to visit many unspoilt medieval villages situated in close vicinity to the village of Verrucola di Fivizzano, voted on the web by readers of 'Europe for Visitors' as the best and prettiest of Tuscany Hilltowns - see the following for more information:-

" We had the most fabulous time in Verrucola, attending the odd mass on Sunday and Alfi's Cantina on Saturday nights. The locals were extremely friendly and most tolerate of these strange foreigners"
