“next to the highway”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

The molino could be a nice and beautiful place, the only real disadvantage is the position directly next to the highway E45 (around 50 meters!). We recognised the unfavourable location at arrival, but we did not want to leave immediately without giving them a chance. However, there was a constant noise of trucks all night and we could hardly sleep. In the morning we tried to find the owners without success. So we left next morning to look for another place to stay.
There is no chance to find out the position of the molino given the information on their homepage, because the position is given wrongly (and far away from the E45). The owners commented on this by stating that they do not feel responsible for the content of their homepage.
We tried to get some money back as soon as we got home. we had payed €200 in advance and €200 when we arrived. After lots of mails, the owners finally agreed to pay back €200.-. We have been waiting for two month now and they never payed a cent. So, we assume that they are not willing to do so.
As you can see, we can not recommend this place!

, Proprietario at Molino di Molanoce, responded to this review, 10 July 2012
Dear visitors of Tripadvisor
I would like to respond to a review:
guests have booked a week at Easter;
for this reservation have paid a deposit, which gave the peak season is not refundable, if they quit to stay, but that can be used in another period.
They came, they looked over the mill, its location, the apartment and found everything to their liking: My daughter and I have asked several times if everything was fine, they said that everything was fine and took possession of ' apartment.
So we asked, as usual, that if everything was in place could pay the balance of the week.
I told them the next morning we would go early to the hospital due to serious problems with my husband and breakfast that we wanted to offer we would go the next day, and my daughter, for every problem, was in the house.
On our return our daughter told us that the guests were gone, without seeking or calling, and we found a note when they wrote that on their return to Austria They would have required the money back.
. Their claims because they had not liked the location of the mill, which was believed to be the center of the village. We replied that we had seen on arrival where he was the mill but they went well.
We proposed to pay back them a sum corrisponding to 2 days of the week when we rented the apartment but did not agree, the apartment was empty on other days of Easter, even if we had had many requests for reservations .

We are really sorry about all this and we wish that this did not happen, but sometimes the expectations for their own peace are higher than any wonderful place to vacation can offer;
would also say that we speak of the reviews on Tripadvisor and Agriturismo.it well as the premium received by the Touring Club in 2012 and that as I write the guests of New Zealand, who have been with us for a week and then go to Piedmont for another period, they returned here, leaving the Piemonte Molanoce to stay for another week.
This is a great pleasure for us.
sincerly The owners

P. S.
In Umbria there are only normal roads and motorways, but a larger one, the E45 which is not far from us.
As you can read the book reviews, no one has ever spoken of trouble from this road, and I assure you that we do not host only deaf people ...
I think it's just a matter of money.

Molino do Melanoce is an 11th Century hydraulic nut mill in the middle of the Umbrian farmlands near a natural mineral water source, conveniently located between Todi and Assisi in the Province of Perugia. The hosts are Ramo and Orietta who are charmingly authentic Umbrians who are war, friendly and competent. The lodging is authentic rustic but complete with all necessary comforts. Ramo will take you with his dogs Whitey and Tikka for a truffle hunt up the wheat fields to the oak groves if you're up at 5 AM. Well deserving of a tip that will be gracefully declined. Full Umbrian breakfast provided. Only provisi is that the location is near a highway that can be heard from the room, but traffic is near nil at night. Highly recommended nevertheless due to it very lean price, location and hospitality. I will be returning as soon as practicable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Al centro dell’Umbria, accanto ai monti e alle colline dove sono secolari i Saperi attinenti l’utilizzazione, l’acquisto, la ricerca e la vendita delle migliori specie di tartufi il Molino di Molanoce ne diviene talvolta luogo di assaggio e di festa legata a quel prelibato frutto della terra. Lungo i sentieri di transumanze antichissime, precedenti diversi secoli la presenza dei romani, si possono traversare fiumi e torrenti, campi e colline, boschi e picchi calcarei, rimanendo sempre nei pressi di luoghi lungamente vissuti. Si possono raggiungere sia paesini arroccati, parchi naturali e parchi archeologici che le innumerevoli presenze storiche e artistiche tra cui Abbazie, chiese, romitori e castelli. Tutto a partire da Molanoce.The mill of Molanoce is an old water-mill set in a 12th century building, a stone and wood structure dating back to the late Roman period. Il Molino di Molanoce è una struttura Gay friendly.Al molino di Molanoce si accettano animali.The place-name "Molanoce" indicates the place where, in the Middle Ages, walnuts were crushed to produce oil for votive lamps.From the 17th century onward it became a water-mill for grinding grain, spelt and maize.Nowadays, the restored apartments are the ideal setting for exclusive and pleasant holidays in the heart of Italy.
