Welcome

 
 
The farmholiday is called “Il Mulino delle Canutole”. At the beginning, it was an old oil mill belonging to a 19th century farm, situated on a hill covered with ancient olive trees, right on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, very close to Lake Trasimeno and its natural park. The name “canutola” comes from the corresponding word in the local dialect indicating the scented herb called “santolina selvatica” (wild santolina), which still spontaneusly and copiously grows all around the hill. In the past, its strongly scented yellow flowers were dried in the sun, then placed in small bags and used to perfume bed linen.

 

 

Nowadays, the farmholiday has been completely renovated just using recyclable materials. It consists of nine independent, bright and cozy apartments, each one equipped with its own kitchen and each one on them take the name of the different farming activities that once took place there. Recently, two outbuildings of the country house has been turned into two fully independent and secluded apartments. Their names are "Il Nascondiglio", two beds, suitable for couples ; and "Il Rifugio" – it goes from two to six beds – which is a refuge from the tensions of everyday life. The essential, plain interior design has been tastefully chosen by the owners, who personally manage the farmholiday. Peace, quiet, privacy and the open-hearted hospitality of the owners are the distinguishing features of the country house.
