What We Think
Nestling in the undiscovered region of the Casinca just south of Bastia, U Mulinu is a charmingly renovated flour mill dating back to the 18th Century. The property sits in fabulous surroundings of expansive vineyards and fruit orchards and is situated alongside a small stream offering a truly enchanting setting and a wonderfully peaceful location. You might see the occasional wild goat or friendly donkey wandering in the grounds at times, making U Mulinu the perfect pick for nature lovers seeking tranquillity and Corsican authenticity… As for the accommodation, it is simply furnished yet cosy and full of character. Downstairs, there is a living/dining room and a rustic-style kitchen with access to a fantastic outdoor dining area complete with a built-in barbecue. A spiral staircase leads to the first floor, which houses three bedrooms and a shower room. From here, you can reach another shaded terrace sitting at the back of the property and equipped with a bar area, a water feature and a large hammock. Finally, the swimming pool area is simply sublime – basking in the sun all day long, it affords dramatic views across the perched village of Penta-di-Casinca. U Mulinu provides ample corners in which to relax, and is ideal for those wanting to take part in typical Mediterranean al fresco living.
This property is considered unsuitable for young children due to the steep spiral staircase and a few unguarded drops in the gardens and alongside the stream.
