Villa Molinaccio has origins dating back to the 10th Century. It was originally built as a watchtower for defence and communication purposes between two castles. Over the following centuries the tower was destroyed and rebuilt in the traditional rural style. Evidence of the buildings past can still be found, especially in the external walls which are over a metre wide in places.

The large 'L' shaped swimming pool with diving board is set in a secluded part of the garden, surrounded by woodland. It is reached by crossing a wooden bridge over the river that runs through the property. The paved area surrounding the pool is furnished with loungers, sun umbrellas, tables and chairs.
Il Molinaccio was bought by the Ricasoli family, owners of the Castello di Brolio near Gaiole in Chianti, who turned it into a mill. The Ricasoli family crest is still in place and can be seen on the main facade of the building. The current owners have completely restored and refurbished both the main house and the barn, preserving the property's history, yet bringing it up to date with all the comforts of today's modern age.

The property consists of the main house with five double bedrooms and a barn which has been converted into two one bedroomed apartments. The house was completely renovated in 1999, and great care was taken to ensure this was done sympathetically, respecting the historical structure of the building.

Wherever possible local materials were used, which means, that whilst the property has all the comforts of a 21st Century villa, many of the original features still remain, making this a unique place to stay.
The villa and apartments are surrounded by five hectares of beautiful grounds with mature trees and shrubs, making this a very private setting. Terraces for outside dining can be found at both the front and the back of the property. There is a tributary of the river Massellone which runs through the gardens, however, this is not fenced in, so care must be taken with young children.
The house is entered through a set of double doors, which open directly into the large kitchen. Downstairs all the rooms have tiled floors and brick built vaulted ceilings. The fully fitted kitchen has wooden units with a built in oven with separate hobs, a large freestanding fridge with freezer section and a dishwasher. There is a built in storage cupboard set into the wall on one side, and a dining table and chairs sit in front of a wooden dresser at one end of the room.
To the left a brick arched doorway leads to the central hallway, and the downstairs bathroom with shower. A door to the right hand side of the hall opens into the main dining room. Another brick arched doorway in the kitchen leads into the lounge. This is a relaxing space with large comfortable sofas arranged in front of the open fireplace. There is a satellite TV with DVD player and a music system. French doors open onto a furnished terrace overlooking the gardens.
To the left hand side of the lounge is a doorway into the dining room. This room is rather special, with its superb floor to ceiling arched window which retains its original ironwork at one end and the original wooden bread oven (which still functions) at the other. In the centre is a large wooden dining table which can seat up to fourteen. Dotted around the room there is a collection of artefacts from the time it was used as a mill.

Access to the downstairs bedroom is off of the dining room. This is a spacious bedroom with a gently curved vaulted ceiling dating back to the time when there was a tower on the site. Comfortably furnished with a double bed, painted wardrobe, chest of drawers, baby cot, TV and a sofa.

The handmade original stone staircase has been carefully restored, and this leads from the main dining room, upstairs through a brick archway to the first floor landing. This level of the house retains the original 19th Century terracotta floors and the traditional beamed ceilings with terracotta typical of farmhouses in this region.
From the first floor landing area, there is access to two of the bedrooms, the family bathroom and the upstairs sitting room. The small sitting room has comfortable chairs and a desk, the walls have fitted shelves and freestanding bookcases filled with books, all arranged around the focal point of the room which is the enormous original open fireplace with stove, this is the ideal place to relax away from the heat of the day.

The master bedroom is to the left of the sitting room, and is a very bright spacious room, with three windows overlooking the gardens and rolling hillside. There is a double bed, large wardrobe, a chest of drawers and TV. It has its own private ensuite bathroom with shower.

A second double bedroom to the left of the landing has two windows with views over the gardens and a double bed with wicker headboard, sofa, large wardrobe and chest of drawers.


The third double bedroom is through the sitting room to the right and has a queen sized wooden sleigh bed, large wardrobe and views over the gardens.

The fourth bedroom to the right of the landing has twin beds with a large wardrobe and very large chest of drawers and two windows with views over the grounds. The large, bright family bathroom located next to the twin bedded room has a full sized bath with handheld shower.
There are no other rentals on the property. The Australian owners live in an apartment in the grounds but are only seen when needed, acting as custodians and problem solvers. They do not access the guests private outside areas or the pool except for occasional maintenance.

Il Molinaccio can also be rented with a catering service should you require it. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners can be available to you on a daily basis on request; prices vary according to menu choices & seasonal availability, please ask your agent for more information.​

In a great location for sightseeing with the historical centres of Arezzo, Cortona, Pisa, San Gimignano, Montalcino and Montepulciano, all within 1½ hours drive.

The water at the villa is safe to drink

Wir sind total begeistert von dem wunderschönen,historischen Anwesen in idyllischer Lage.Es ist liebevoll renoviert worden und mit hohem Komfort ausgestattet.Es wurde an nichts gespart.Die antiken Möbel und das schöne Keramikgeschirr passen perfekt zu dem harmonischen Gesamteindruck.Die ganze Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und auch der große Pool lassen keine Wünsche offen.Der kleine Bach,der durch das Grunstück fließt verstärkt den idyllischen Gesamteindruck.
Die Eigentümer sind diskret,dabei sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.Sie haben alle Reservierungen für das Abendessen für uns geregelt und wir wurden dadurch stets bevorzugt behandelt.
Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir von Cathy und Stephan mit Antipasti und selbst gebackenen Brot herzlich empfangen.
Wir vergeben eine eins mit Stern!
Local attractions Keramik Rampini Castello Brolio Enoteca in Greve und Radda Siena etc. Herausragend waren die Restaurants Badia al Coltibuono und il Celliere. Sehr gut war le vigne. Man kann auch getrost den Empfehlungen von Cathy und Stephan im roten Ordner folgen,es stimmt immer.
