Profile

Il Mulino di Camporata was commissioned to be built in the year 1100 AD by the Lord of Badiacoltibuono through the city of Florence. It was an active grain mill, using a river that still flows beneath the main house, making flour for bread and pasta until the 1970’s.
 
For hundreds of years, Pilgrims camped along the river that runs alongside the property on their way to Rome.
Today, the local people from the village stop to pray to the Madonna in front of Il Mulinio's gate or to sit along its' wall and visit.

The main house is a picturesque cottage with charming gardens and pool. The two apartments that join the main house are beautifully furnished with quilts made by the owner along with many other personal touches.

Interior

The apartments have their own laundry room, two terraces, a garden for fresco dining and barbecue grill. From the top terrrace is a romantic view of the medieval village of Barbischio.

Each apartment accommodates four, with a master bedroom and full bath. There is also a second bath with shower.
There is a combination living room, and kitchen with a sofa that converts into a queen sized bed.

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
