Il Molinaccio, Località il Molinaccio - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

5 bedrooms 5 bathrooms 10 to 13 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

With origins dating back to the 10th Century, Il Molinaccio was initially built as a defence watchtower and has since been reconstructed as a traditional rural villa. The building is still steeped in history, especially in its external walls which are over a metre thick in places. Nonetheless, it has been expertly restored to include the best modern comforts while keeping its rustic charm. Set among peaceful surroundings, the lush green trees provide privacy and shade, and the secluded pool area is equipped with a barbeque and a long wooden dining table under a gazebo. A calm river runs through the grounds which is easily crossed via a sturdy wooden bridge. Beside the entrance is a pergola furnished with a long wooden table and ten wrought-iron chairs. What’s more, the garden is also home to a ping-pong table, a pool table, a sauna, a table-football set and a children’s playground.

The main house is entered through a pair of double doors which open directly into the large kitchen-diner. This room and the dedicated dining room both feature a rustic wooden table with six chairs. This dining room also has a wide set of arched French doors, with high vaulted ceilings and traditional rural decorations. The lounge boasts three long comfortable sofas set in front of a flat-screen TV and an open fireplace. The spacious and homely bedrooms are found on the first floor, as well as a billard room, a desk and a sofa. Another bedroom situated on the ground floor can accommodate four people.

Our Thoughts
This is a super property, steeped in history. It’s just perfect for a large group, with five spacious bedrooms, good-sized areas for relaxing, inside and out. You can just imagine the kids playing hide and seek amid the trees in the lovely wooded grounds. There’s even a little bridge on which to play Pooh Sticks in the stream that babbles its way through the gardens.

Notes
The owner lives next door in the property grounds. They occupy a small cottage beside the main house with its own separate entrance. A stream runs through the grounds and is unfenced. A catering service is available on request, including breakfast, lunch and dinner – please enquire when booking. The water at the villa is safe to drink. Clients are kindly asked to let us know in advance how they would prefer their bedroom arrangements regarding double and twin beds. The Wi-Fi is currently only available on the ground floor.
Fire Place: open

Pool
The L-shaped pool is set in a wood in the grounds, reached via a small bridge over the stream that runs through the property. The poolside area is paved and lawned and furnished with sun loungers, chairs and parasols. There is a gate separating the pool area from the rest of the grounds. There is also a shaded pergola with a table and benches, as well as a fridge and a barbecue nearby. The pool has a diving board and the water is entered via metal ladder steps. The pool is 14 metres by 7 metres and has a diving board. The pool is open from May until the end of September, weather permitting.

Wir waren mit Freunden 2 Wochen in dem herrlichen Anwesen. Die Gastgeber sind fantastisch, sehr gastfreundlich und wirklich interessiert daran, ihren Gästen einen angenehmen Aufenthalt zu bereiten. Ein Teil von uns nutzte den großen Pool auch mal den ganzen Tag, der andere Teil unternahm mehr Ausflüge. Das Haus hat unsere Erwartungen voll erfüllt, die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und so war auch kochen für 10 Personen kein Problem.
Local attractions Siena und Florenz sind ein absolutes Muss
