La Fornace del Molinello 10, Rapolano Terme - Siena

5 bedrooms 3 bathrooms Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

South-east of Siena, La Fornace del Molinello, a former lime kiln, offers a flexible base for larger groups of friends or family wanting to share the glories of Tuscany and pleasures of a private pool. The property, set into a slight slope, retains distinctive reminders of its history and has been remodelled into three interconnecting apartments arranged over three floors. Each has its own entrance from the garden, as well as internal access. The large pool, set just above the villa, has lovely views over open farmland and wooded hillsides. Its surrounding lawn and the two delightful loggias, one with a dining table big enough for the whole party, will be the places you remember most for the quality “together time” they deliver.

Siena, Arezzo, San Gimignano and Perugia are all easy day trips from here. But if you enjoy some of Italy’s best wines, you’ll also want to savour the smaller hill towns of Montepulciano, Montalcino and Gaiole. Meanwhile, nearby Rapolano Terme offers famous hot springs – and another opportunity to spoil yourselves with a day at a spa.

Our Thoughts
A one-off, La Fornace del Molinello has a lot of charm. Outside, the two loggias and poolside are particularly lovely places to relax with a long, cool drink, good book or delicious meal. Internally, its style is dressed-down, which will suit younger members of the party or those who prefer energy over preciousness.The villa’s three apartments offer useful measures of privacy to a larger group and the study, which can be accessed from the garden, is a great bolt-hole. You’ll find generous spaces for hanging out en masse on the ground floor.

5 bedrooms. 3 bathrooms. Please note that one of the bedrooms in the first-floor apartment has restricted headroom. If you need any of the double beds converting to twins, please request this when booking.

The large pool, set just above the villa, is surrounded by a stone-paved terrace that gives on to lawn. This is furnished with sun loungers and deckchairs. The water is entered by internal steps. Pool size: 6m x 12m, 1.1-1.5m deep. Open May to October, weather permitting.
