Il Molinaccio 8, Località il Molinaccio - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

4 bedrooms 5 bathrooms Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

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.

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 is a second lounge area with another open fireplace, 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.

There are no other rentals on the property. The owners live in an apartment on the grounds, but will not intrude on your villa, its grounds or the pool, except for occasional maintenance. 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.
There are more beds in the villa than the maximum occupancy, however the maximum occupancy indicated cannot be exceeded due to local laws. The extra beds are available for flexibility purposes only.
