Mulino Marghen is a beautifully restored water mill set in the hills of Northern Tuscany. Surrounded by chestnut forest and on the banks of the Torrente Gordana, Mulino Marghen is an oasis of peace.
We have a 40m2 yurt, new in 2018. We also have a dinng room of around 30m2 and an enclosable outside terrace of about the same area. The yurt has been very popular and is accessed by walking a short path through the woods. A feeling of there being a "work " area and a "relax" area can be created. The terrace has water flowing beneath it as it is above the channel bringing water to the mill.
Food is either grown in our vegetable garden or sourced locally.
Heating is by wood pellet(almost carbon neutral).
A conscious approach to all we do helps to keep waste to a minimum.
Hydro electric electricity generation will be coming soon.
Mulino Marghen is a fully restored watermill, once used to mill chestnuts into flour.Water flows once again to the mill and its music permeates the atmosphere.
