Secluded millstream gardens, sun-drenched terraces, millstone tables under the vines for meals al fresco... just some of the charms of The Watermill at Posara in Tuscany, Italy.

The Watermill is in the comune (administrative district) of Fivizzano which, as well as a hundred ancient castles in its boundaries, contains not one, but two environmentally protected areas: the National Park of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, the backbone of Italy, and the Regional Park of the Apuan Alps, home of the marble mountains of Carrara. Because of this protected status the air and the water are pure and unpolluted and the area abounds in wildlife.

We specialise in relaxing, inspiring, fun-filled painting holidays, creative writing workshops, knitting holidays, Italian language courses and find your Oomph! and yoga retreats.

The mill has been beautifully restored and furnished. All the bright, well decorated bedrooms, with en suite bathrooms, enjoy lovely views over the river, the gardens or the mountains.
