    Villa Il Molinaccio dates back to the 10th Century when the villa was originally built as a watchtower. Completely restored and refurbished in 1999 preserving the property's history, yet bringing it up to date with all the comforts of today's modern age. Wherever possible local materials were used, which means, that whilst the property has all the comforts of a 21st Century villa, many of the original features still remain, making this a unique place to stay.

    The villa is set in five hectares of beautiful grounds with far reaching views towards the Castle of Meleto and the hilltop medieval village of Vertine. The large 'L' shaped swimming pool with diving board is set in a secluded part of the garden, surrounded by woodland. Terraces for outside dining can be found a...

We had a great stay for a week in late September. The villa had everything required, linens excellent & beds comfortable. The villa works well for big groups, we also had the apartment. The kitchen accommodated several people at a time & the dining table large enough to seat everyone well. The photos are outdated so the place is nicer... more

The villa itself is fantastic with lovely large rooms and a great kitchen with everything you could need for cooking up some delicious Tuscan recipes. We needed the fire on as it was chilly at night and every night we had a roaring fire in the main... more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed here a couple of summers ago (but they weren´t on trip advisor back then!). We hired both the big house and one of the apartments.
