The Villa is in fact an ancient watermill (dating probably about 1674) which has been sympathetically restored and transformed into a deluxe yet cosy spa and country house. The author of the project is architect Stefano Zaghini.

On the first floor, after an impressive entrance landing with glass ceiling, there is the living room with flat screen TV and satellite reciver (Sky Sport, Sky Cinema are available for free) and fireplace. The fully equipped kitchen and dining area still feature the pivot of the watermill on the wall.

There are two bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and a king bed, the other with a king bed and a double sofa bed. An additional toilet-shower room is available on this floor.

On the ground floor there is the spa area, with jacuzzi, sauna, hammam and chromotherapy, plus a rainforest shower and a toilet. An Iphone/Ipod dock is available, and is connected to the domotic stereo system.

Outside, the impressively designed heated pool with foot massage (open from the end of March until early November) lies within an ample garden with shrubs and an organic vegetable garden (guests will be free to pick their own vegetables during their stay).

A fenced ground of approximately 2 hectares, bordering river Faena, featuring mature cherry trees (hence the name of the villa, literally “Cherries Mill”) completes the property, which benefits from home automation.
