B&B THE MILLER’S MEDIEVAL HOUSE (1300), Aiello del Friuli
The miller’s house is a genuine and very rare fragment of the Middle Ages (1300) in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. It has remained unchanged thanks to masterly restoration works. Set in the delightful small country village of Novacco, the miller's house is surrounded by an environmentally protected area: streams, a poplar plantation crowded with roe deer, hares, pheasants, herons, fields and vineyards as far as the eye can see. It is a typical ancient farmhouse encircled by a high dry stone wall, with a secondary gate opening towards the fields. It has a long three-arch colonnade and a large fenced garden with a barbecue.
A river offering trout fishing flows close to the back of the miller's house, and the house is furnished with precious period furniture.
The house is especially right for a couple searching a romantic and relaxing holiday.
