Il Molinello makes a fabulous base for a "spoke and wheels" kind of trip. We spent two weeks and had plenty of varied road cycling - gorgeous scenery, hilltop towns, and plenty of climbing when we wanted a hard day, Sandro (a professional bike guide) can guide each ride, upload his rides into your gps, provide route sheets if you prefer, or just give you ideas on routes you choose. Sandro even picked us up one day after we had a mechanical. They also specialize in providing fun things for a non-riding spouse to do (cooking lessons, winery and olive vineyard tours, wine tasting, cooking lessons, trips to Siena, etc) while the cyclist hits the roads. Sandro even took us to see a Giro d'Italia stage and provided fabulous local, organic foods and wine! They speak good english and strive to please. Can't go wrong.

- Agriturismo Il Molinello Asciano, Italy - Tuscany
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In 1996 we moved to the Crete Senesi and we fell in love with the Molinello: Etruscan origins, medieval mill, peace and tranquility. That’s why we decided to share it with our guests and their four-legged friends. The farm keeps the whole family busy: Alessandro (biologist, nature guide and Sommelier), Elisa who looks after the administration, Mauro and Paola, retired but full time busy on the farm. And we hope that in the future even Emma, Guido and Bernardo will give us a helping hand. We produce vegetables and fruit, olive oil and truffles from organic agriculture.F or our guests we organize a rich program of initiatives discovering the colours and flavours of the Crete, organic homemade breakfast, wine tasting in our cosy winery, cooking lessons, olive oil tastings, wine tours, and excursions by bike guided by Alessandro who is fond of cycling. Only 4 km from our farm there are the thermal baths of Rapolano which grant special discounts to our guests. ... more less
