The Old Mill


Our historic olive mill is situated at the base of Cortona, where the Etruscan people once settled, 3000 years ago.

The mill, situated near the Loreto river, dates back to 1484 and was once owned by the prominent Venuti family. We’d be happy to organize visits and and show you how the water was diverted under the building to provide power to the mill. Each year, during the harvest season, local landowners bring their olives to be pressed here, making it a hub of activity.
