Molino a Brolio 12, Brolio - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

6 bedrooms 6 bathrooms Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Molino a Brolio 12 is a typical Tuscan villa in local stone located a short distance away from Brolio Castle. The building was originally a mill which explains its lower position at the foot of several Chianti hills which are covered with Tuscan forests.

The property is composed of three buildings, one of which has not been restored and is not accessible. Next to the main building is a low building which is used for storage. To the other side of this is the fenced pool area. There is plenty of sun on the area which is furnished with sunbeds and umbrella. Space is limited immediately around the pool edge, however space for children to play is provided by the lawned areas to the front of the property.

The villa is entered by crossing a loggia with a large terracotta arch. It is furnished with a table and chairs for 10 people. From here there is access into the main lounge of the villa. It has a large stone fireplace and the tradition terracotta arched ceiling. The spacious room is furnished with a triple, a double sofa and an armchair. Running along one wall is the original feeding trough of the farm animals.

Passing on through an arched door way there is a large dining area. It's divided into two areas with huge arch across the room. The feeding trough continues alone the full length of this room. The floor is done in antique terracotta tiles, like that of the rest of the villa. To one side of the arch is a large wooden table that comfortably seats 10 people, while the other side has a smaller table with chairs and a sideboard.

The kitchen is accessed from the lounge, this is a spacious room with a traditional stone sink providing it with plenty of local character.

The room is large with the original terracotta floor which is found throughout the villa.

Merveilleuse région à côté de superbes lieux de dégustations aussi bien à Gaiole qu a castagnoli où il y a un super restaurant. Et une cave pour déguster un très bon chianti.
Le domaine est au calme et bien situé pour aller à Sienne comme à Florence.
Local attractions Un très bon restaurant dans Gaiole sur la place au dessus des parkings qui se trouve à côté du tabac. Avec une terrasse agréable et surtout une tres bonne cuisine. Je recommande les côtelettes d agneau avec les cèpes. Le restaurant ilcelliere à castagnoli il faut réserver mais excellent un repas à la truffe exceptionnel.
