The Molino is an independent manor of about 300 sq. meters which was obtained through the careful reconversion and restoration of an antique water-mill, completed during the 90’s.


Together with the Abbey ( 11th century ), it is the most important historical find in the area. The primitive nucleus dates back to the 13th century and was reconstructed and enlarged in 1606 by the Arrighi family, the story of which was recorded from year to year, up to the present, in the documents of the Leopoldino Register kept in custody in Siena.


During the long restoration, great attention and care was taken in maintaining intact, beside the original structure, all of the water routes which characterised the site and the house which was its essential component.

Lovely secluded comfortable rustic-chic villa in Tuscany great for large groups. Owners were extremely helpful and considerate. Great home base to explore Tuscany. MUST DO: we had a chef come to the villa and prepare a meal from scratch (think he made the pasta on site, simmered the sauce and braised the meat for hours). The food was some of the best we had our entire trip, the wine pairings were out of this world with wine from the owners’ Brunello winery. The chef taught our kids how to make pasta as a bonus. It was a magical night. This villa is ideal for families. The kids adored the villa and its surroundings. If you can get a reservation here, do it. You will not regret it.

We absolutely loved staying here. We were a group of 4 couples looking for a remote villa to unwind and we could not have found a better place, with the kindest hosts. Carlo and his team were very attentive, welcoming and lovely hosts. We hope to stay again in the future. We recommend anyone wanting the real Tuscan experience, whilst enjoying the company of friends to stay here.

There are no words for how magical this place is! Like stepping back in time (but with AC) in the best possible way. We luxuriated in the private, serene, relaxing setting–and the pool was great too! Unlike anywhere we’ve ever stayed and we can’t wait to go back! The hosts were beyond accommodating, helpful, and available. We took advantage of two add-on experiences: a fantastic wine tasting/lunch at the Molino Winery, and a chef-taught cooking class/dinner at the house. Both were highlights of our entire trip. We can’t wait to come back!

this is a special place…
The house is somewhat like staying in a castle, right near the Abbey. Carlo did an amazing renovation of this old mill into the current house.  It is very quiet, peaceful and remote. Carlo and everyone was very nice. Giacomo’s cooking class with dinner with the estate wine was a very big highlight, molto bene! Highly recommend this. The SUV was handy for the road. We made the mistake of using directions from Airbnb which led us to Montalcino Abby, so follow instructions from host. Lastly, beware of all of the speed cameras from Siena to Firenze!

We felt welcomed from the minute we arrived. Take them up on the offer to cook and tastings!! A visit to their home and winery made the experience extra special! Traveled with young children and grandparents and everyone had something to do and fun!
