Milfiori, Historic Country Retreat

Milfiori, Historic Country Retreat

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 23, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Milfiori is a beautifully restored farmhouse built in the mid 1800's. It is surrounded by serene Provence-like gardens containing century old roses. The home is spacious and artfully decorated with many period pieces. It is like stepping back in time from the moment you cross the threshold.

The available accomodation at Milfiori comprises three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. Each bedroom is completely unique (one has a claw foot tub en-suite) and melds beautifully with the period of the home. There is a quiet sitting room upstairs, a modern kitchen and a large dining room/sun room overlooking the garden.

Adjacent to the main house is a stone building with heavy metal doors. In decades past this building served as the bank as well as the village store. The gun port where the guard stood watch while the strong box was being unloaded from the stage coach can still be seen.

There is a charming caretaker's cotage on the property and a beautiful old barn. The fields and slopes beyond this show signs of early gold excavation.

Life at Milfiori is restful and unhurried. Stroll the gardens (the name means a thousand flowers) or just sit on the porch, read a book and listen to the birds sing.

Absolutely Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
Girls weekend!! This house made for a great girls weekend. There were 6 of us and each one of us truly enjoyed this house. Close to everything, we enjoyed hiking in Big Trees, Wine Tasting and Great Dinners in Murphys, Zip Lining at Moaning Cavers, Stagecoach ride and a few beers in Columbia and then nice relaxing morning and evenings at this beautiful house. Grounds were perfect to sit and relax and the owner very delightful. Thanks Willi for sharing your house with us.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
As others have described, the house is quite lovely! The grounds are beautiful. In fact, the pictures do not do it justice. Too many times the house does not live up to the expectations from the pictures but that was not the case here. The hostess of the house is quite gracious.

It is close to Murphys - but away from the noise. Depending on what you want - could be perfect. When Murphys isn't totally crazy, staying downtown is fun. When it is, you need a break from the noise (like frog jumping weekend).

Highly recommended!

Spring Flowers At Milfiori

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Milfiori with 2 9 year olds boys, they loved the house and yards, there are lot of interesting nooks and crannies to explore throughout the house and property. The boys quite liked the pot bellied stove. Our host Willi was charming and helpful. We lucked out and not only got lots of sun, but also fresh powder snow in the mountains. but were able to ski up the highway at Bear Valley Lodge. We didn't have chains so used the Murphys Taxi service to get a Suburban trip up the mountain. We found the house very peaceful and the spring flowers on the property were spectacular. Only thing I could suggest to improve the experience was a croquet set for the huge lawn!

SOLD on returning again

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I returned for a second year in a row to Milfiori and it was a wonderful homecoming. We were in Murphys to enjoy the grape stomp weekend but the highlight for us was the house and just hanging out at the house to relax, catch up with one another, and enjoy the property. The wrap around porch is lovely to sit on in the morning with coffee and in the afternoon with wine!!

The house is very clean and well taken care of. There is plenty of space and lots of room to spread out in and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking.

The quaint town of Murphys is just 1 mile away and there are lovely tasting rooms and some cute boutique shops.

We've already booked for next year and once again, we are treating ourselves to staying 3 nights since we think that two won't really be enough!!

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Murphys, Milfiori is a gem of a find!!!

Simply Lovely

  • 5 of 5
We were immediately taken by the sense of calm and beauty of this property. the house had a charm about it that is indescribable until you step foot inside. We were transported away from the hustle and bustle of city life and by the end of the weekend, we didn't want to leave. I've been looking for an excuse to come back ever since!

Location

Activity and Interests

The house is in the heart of Calaveras County's wine growing region. It is less than 2 miles from the quaint town of Murphys and 18 tasting rooms. Stop in at any of the unique wineries to meet the owners and learn about their wines. Each has it's own personality and is well worth the visit.
