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. The owner lives next door in the property grounds. They occupy a small cottage beside the main house with its own separate entrance. The owner's friendly dog lives onsite. The Wi-Fi is at the moment only available on the ground floor.

We had a fantastic stay at Il Molinaccio, the villa far exceeded our expectations, it is beautiful house, incredibly spacious and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The pool area, play area and grounds were all fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our time relaxing around the house. The location is also fantastic, there is nothing around the house to disturb your stay, whilst both Radda and Gaoile are both a 10 minute drive away. We will absolutely stay here again and this trip has gone down as one of our best every holidays. The owners Ann and Maurice could not have been more helpful, they were available at any time to answer any questions we had, which was a huge help in the first few days. I would thoroughly recommend Il Molinaccio!
Local attractions The local winery's were fantastic, Radda is a beautiful town with incredible views and plenty of restaurants. Gaoile was also a great small town. As Siena is only a 40 minute drive away, we also spent a day there.
