Ready when you are! Enjoying pointing in the sunshine

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.

As I was saying yesterday, the Watermill team has been beavering away putting the finishing touches to our preparations for our 2020 creative courses season. Like everybody, we are having to learn to live with the repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic, but our philosophy is to continue to improve the ambience of the Watermill, so we are ready for creative guests whenever they arrive.

We have all but completed the external restoration of the old frantoio, the olive press. Above are our happy builders, Nico and Daniele, enjoying the sunshine and putting the finishing touches to the pointing of the ancient stonework overlooking the river. It looks like they’re having fun, but as far as acting is concerned, we have suggested that they do not change their day jobs! We’ll show you how the frantoio facade looks from a distance as soon as we have taken down the scaffolding next week.

We’ve now installed all our air-conditioning units, connected to our photovoltaic generating system (which makes us self-sufficient in electricity) so you can now be Cool and Green while enjoying warm hospitality and convivial company at the Watermill.

Solar power to keep you cool.

Flavio, our gardener, will soon be putting in new plants for the gardens and courtyard, as well as for the myriads of window boxes that adorn our buildings.
