La Macinaia is located in the Tuscan hills, a short distance from the village Montebenichi where there is a typical Tuscan osteria. The villa is a rustic villa perfect for family groups looking to spend time relaxing at the villa and doing some sight-seeing.
From the spacious, hedged garden there are excellent views of vineyards, olive groves and forests that cover the surrounding Chianti countryside. Below the villa there is large pool with diving board and surrounded by sun-bed and umbrellas. Next to the pool is a bathroom with shower and a kitchenette.
The old farm house has been restored to a comfortable standard with large spacious rooms. In front of the entrance to La Macina there is a terrace furnished with table and chairs to dine al fresco.
The entrance leads into a large open-plan room, with high windows letting in lots of light. To one side of the room there are a couple of armchairs and wicker chairs around an open fireplace. In the centre of the room is a typical Tuscan farmhouse wooden dining table that seats up to 12 people on two wooden benches and a couple of chairs.
To the other side of the room is a full equipped kitchen, furnished with gas hobs, oven, fridge with freezer, dishwasher and microwave. The worktops and sink are all made with travertine. Off the kitchen there is a little hall which leads to a bathroom with jacuzzi bath, above which there is a shower head.
From the downstairs hall there is an internal staircase which leads to the first floor corridor. Directly ahead is a double bedroom that is furnished with a double bed, large wardrobe with drawers, and a chest of drawers.
Off the corridor there is a large bathroom with tub and separate shower. To the far end of the corridor on the right is a bedroom with twin beds, and a large wardrobe with drawers. The window overlooks the gardens and the pretty view of Tuscany that lays beyond.
At the end of the corridor is a door leading into another bedroom. In this  bedroom there is a double bed, a wardrobe, a simple chair and a chest of drawers. The large window over looks the front garden and lets in plenty of light.
To the left of the main stairs is a door leading to a spacious lounge. This room is full of natural light and is furnished with a triple couch, a desk and two simple chairs. In the centre of one wall is a large open fireplace. Along the opposite wall is a beautiful antique bookcase. To the right is a door leading to the external stairs which lead back down to the ground floor. At the rear of the room is a corridor leading to the last of the bedrooms and a bathroom with separate shower.


The final bedroom is furnished with a wrought iron bed, double wardrobe and a chest of drawers with a mirror on top. The single window allows plenty of light into the room and offers more of the lovely views.


La Macina is on a country road which leads to a little hamlet, an occasional car passes.

The villa is wonderfully clean.
Although the villa is excellent for families, care must be taken on the steps down to the pool.

High-speed wireless internet access available for an additional small fee per week. Please bring your own laptop.

Pros Piscine superbe avec vestiaire et douche
Literies confortables
Maison spacieuse et typique de la région
Maison bien dotée en salles de bain (3)
Beaux paysages alentours
Cons Manque un canapé dans le séjour Maison assez isolée, il faut faire pas mal de voiture pour trouver des commerces. La route vers le Nord est carrossable mais pas en très bon état par endroit (chemin sur 6 km). Prévoir un répulsif à moustiques, éviter les heures chaudes près de la piscine (guêpes et taons nombreux)
Local attractions Petit marché à Ambra le mardi Villages de Monte San Savino et Radda in Chianti agréables Arezzo mérite vraiment une journée de visite Eviter Sienne bondée pendant les semaines du Palio, nous n'avons pas réussi à nous garer...

Stay: July 2014
Pros The biggest attraction was the pool, it was clean and very tidy. Mauro and Valentina were wonderful, very kind and helpful and we understand have only recently taken over the Villa and it is a work in progress for them.
Cons The Jacuzzi bath in the down stairs bathroom looked good in the advertising photos but did not work, in fact when we tried it out the power to the whole villa tripped out resulting in a trip to the main outside fuse box. No hot water to any of the down-stairs appliances and only one bathroom up-stairs had controllable hot water. Stray cats trying to steal food from the BBQ and trying to get in the villa whenever a door was opened became a pain. We were warned about flying insects but no amount of sprays seemed to keep them away.
Local attractions Pisa, Firenze, San Gimignano and Siena are reasonable drives away. Bucine has a good supermarket. Restorante Villa Leccarda was the best restaurant we found locally.
