Villa overview - owner's description
The property is the Mulino (mill) set in beautiful gardens, against a backdrop of an unspoilt natural valley with wild flowers, birds and animals - all within close reach of Gli Stretti di Giaredo for gorge walking. There is access to the private swimming pool situated in terraced gardens overlooking meadows and fruit trees.
The Gordana valley is an area of outstanding natural beauty, protected by Italian law as a Site of Regional Interest, home of several protected species of birds, fish, frogs, bats and insects. The hills are covered with chestnut trees. Further upstream are the Stretti di Giaredo, a spectacular 500m long gorge that is famous throughout Italy for walking holidays – it has 50m high rock walls and in places is only a few metres wide.
Pontremoli is a lively market town with an enchanting historic quarter, and a market twice a week. The old town inhabits an elongated stone island surrounded on both sides by the River Magra. Many beautiful historic bridges cross the river on both sides of the town. There are cafés, restaurants and shops, the Duomo and Campanile, the Castello del Piagnaro and two very beautiful piazzas.
Cavezzana is a unique and magical property. Everyone who comes to the house falls in love with it, and several families return year on year. It is primarily a family home rather than a rental property, and the Mulino is usually only rented to 3 or 4 families or groups a year. We like to feel that the Mulino is really suited to the people who go there – it is not ideal for toddlers or the very elderly, as parts of the garden have terracing, and the millpond is situated outside the kitchen door, with a bridge across the water to the outside eating area.
It is a great place for outside eating with lots of different places to eat, drink and picnic in the lovely gardens. With the two kitchens it is great for groups as both are well equipped for cooking. The home cinema is always popular, and there is a very good collection of DVDs.
The terrace is wonderful for relaxing, sunbathing, having cocktails or dancing at midnight. Cavezzana is a very special Italian experience.
Not suitable for young children. No smoking. No pets.
