Sandy’s watercolour inspires us to new restoration projects

Painting by Sandra Strohschein, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.Isn’t this an exciting watercolour by our lovely, talented and inspiring Watermill painting tutor Sandra Strohschein? It captures the essence of ‘Mill 2’, the 19th century mill in the Watermill complex.

As you know, we’ve just completed restoring the buildings of 17th Century watermill (Mill 1), creating in the process two lovely new bedrooms, the Ghirlandaio and the Uccello, each with sparkling new shower rooms and stunning views down the River Rosaro.

Now we are putting our thinking caps on and wondering what to create when we restore Mill 2. A mini-museum charting the history of the Mill? A comfy leisure space where people can relax and watch DVDs?  It’s fun thinking about it. And you can add your thoughts if you join us on a Watermill creative holiday.
