I had the most wonderful, relaxing and pleasurable holiday week in The Watermill - Posara. I only wish it could last a bit longer. We were looked after, fed and watered extremely well. It surpassed my expectations in bounds and leaps and I am already dreaming and planning my next stay there. Well done Lois & Bill!

I've just come back from a yoga retreat at the Watemill at Posara and I was extremely impressed by the beauty of the Watermill itself and of its location. The buildings are beautiful and comfortable and the location is green and luscious, with a stream running nearby and plenty of walks available around the mill. A pretty village is a...

Just returned from an outstanding holiday in this most beautiful place. I have been looked after for a whole week and feel really spoilt. The whole experience has been such a wonderful treat. I was apprehensive as I have never travelled on my own before, but all fears were banished from the moment I arrived in the Mill. Bill and...

For my 40th birthday I bought myself something from the top of my bucket list - a week of painting in Tuscany. I found The Watermill online and after reading the reviews, booked my week at the end of August. There is no other way to put it than to say that this was one of the best weeks and...

Just returned from wonderful knitting workshop. Brilliant accommodation, amazing food and great hosts in Lois and Bill. Made to feel like friends rather than guests in their fantastic home with spectacular views. Trips were to interesting locations and whole holiday was relaxing yet inspiring.

I had the pleasure of staying at The Watermill for Sandra Iafrate's art workshop. The Watermill is a beautiful place - the old mill, the river, the flowers, the common areas and the rooms were all just wonderful. I had a room with an en-suite which was really nice. My room was above the kitchen/dining area with lovely views of...

I was the 'sherpa' for my wife's painting workshop with Sarah Yeoman. As a non-painter, I had the luxury of exploring the mill and the countryside on my own and in the company of the two other 'non-painting partners' (see Blackcat2york's review). The facilities are top-notch, with impeccable service. Meals were always a treat - ranging from simple, typical Tuscan...
