Europe > Italy > Tuscany > San Leo Bastia

The nearest village is San Leo Bastia approx 12 min drive, and has 2 bars, both with shops attached where guests can buy most things, including home produced prosciutto. There is also a restaurant with it's own Pizza oven and has the best fillet steak for miles!
Trestina is the nearest town where there are banks, supermarkets, bakers butchers etc - this is about 15 kms from the mill.

The nearest beach is on Lake Trasimeno,at Tuoro on the north side of the 4th largest lake in Italy. The beach is man-made and guests can hire sunbeds or take a ferry to the largest island which is famous for it's lace making.
There are several restaurants on the island and one at Tuoro where you can either have a drink whilst waiting for the ferry, or have a delicious lunch or dinner.

There are numerous good restaurants within 30 mins drive of the house - one of which has a set meal at weekends - lunchtime on a Sunday can be great fun - it occupies the ground floor of the magnificent church above.
There is an exceptional restaurant in the next valley where all the produce is home-grown including occasional goat dishes. There are also 2 places which specialise in brunch on Sundays, an organic restaurant, and a couple of inexpensive restaurants with set meals, very busy with office workers, builders, and rarely "visitors"- so guests get to experience the true Italian way of life.
There is a horse-riding centre only a couple of minutes from the village of San Leo - they can cater for beginners and experienced riders - previous guests have said how well-run the stables is and were impressed with the condition of the horses.
We have had many comments from guests regarding the friendliness and welcome the local people have given them.
