Surrounded by an exceptionally beautiful landscape, the home is perfect to enjoy relaxing time with family & friends and caters to those who are ready to mix relaxation into the exploration of the most wonderful places in Tuscany & central Italy! About the property The home is a renovated water mill situated within a large estate of 560 hectares (1,300 acres), which are currently strictly farmed according to organic methods. The farming is dedicated to the production of sunflowers, extra virgin olive oil & wine and to the raising of the local white-horned cattle for the production of organic “chianina” beef. About 100 hectares of this extensive property are dedicated to agriculture, while the rest boasts the typical Mediterranean vegetation as well as several oak woodlands, where the white cattle can roam free and wild animals such as deers, wild boars, pheasants & foxes can be spotted. The home is purposely situated south of the estate near the river Vescina and its name “Il Mulino” (the mill) originates from its ancient use as a water mill to grind wheat. The two long stonewalls, that were originally built to channel the water from the river to the mill, now form the enclosure for the recently built swimming pool. Quite sophisticated engineering was required at the time to channel the water to the mill and when walking the lower valley (one of the many beautiful trails around the property), it is still possible to see parts of it. After a complete renovation phase that lasted several years, where all of the original charm and architectural features were strictly maintained, the interiors of the mill have recently been meticulously upgraded to high-end, modern standards. The thorough attention to details, from the careful selection of the materials used to the exquisitely appointed furniture and art pieces, has contributed into creating a truly unique space that perfectly blends with the building’s original structure. Set in the most beautiful Tuscan landscape between Siena and Arezzo, the property offers its guests the privacy and the amenities of a countryside home within an easy access to engaging day-trips, focused on food & wine, sport & recreation, history, art and culture…with its unique blend of indoor and outdoor living, this is a truly magical place for a dream Italian Vacation perfect for a family reunion or a group of friends travelling together! Location details The property is ideally located only about 2.8 miles away from Lucignano, a wonderful Medieval hilltop village famous for its elliptic walls and about 14 miles from Arezzo, one of Tuscany’s most important towns. Some of Italy’s most famous and beautiful destinations, such as Siena (approx. 30 miles), Florence (53 miles) and Cortona (25 miles) can all be easily reached by car or by train. The beautiful Val D’Orcia, with its ancient villages (such as Pienza, 19 miles), wine paths and natural hot springs (Bagno Vignoni, 27 miles) develops west and south-west from the property. Rapolano Terme, with its renowned hot springs, lies only 13 miles west. Arezzo is the nearest main train station, with frequent trains connecting to Florence (abt. 50 min. trip) and Rome (abt. 1-hour trip). Quite a few trains leave every day also from Sinalunga (8 miles from the property) to Florence. Montepulciano (14 miles) and Montalcino (28 miles), known for their wine as well as their architectural & cultural life are both within easy reach and not to be missed.. Other fabulous nearby villages to explore such as Monte San Savino, Sinalunga, Castiglion Fiorentin and Foiano are all located within a few miles.

About the neighbourhood
About Lucignano & Valdichiana valley, the Tuscan region & Things to do in the area. Visit of the estate’s grounds: The fabulous walking trails around the estate are not to be missed! (guided tours by car can be organized upon request). Wildlife including roe deers, wild boards, porcupines, hares, pheasants, foxes, etc.. can be spotted at any given time. The landscape, varying from the typical Mediterranean vegetation (including perfectly kept olive groves & vineyards), to the beautiful oak woodlands and the pastures with grazing “Chianina” cattle, make this property one of the most unique in Tuscany…
Getting around
Lucignano (2.8 miles from the estate): Considered one of Tuscany’s historical gems, this village is an extraordinary example of medieval town planning, with its elliptical concentric walls, which have remained intact over the centuries. Here you will find grocery stores, cafés, newsstands, banks and a few great typical restaurant/trattorias. Surrounding villages, such as Monte San Savino (2.6 miles), Foiano (6 miles), Sinalunga (8 miles) and Castiglion Fiorentino (12 miles) all share an intact medieval identity and represent a perfect example of a typical hilltop Tuscan village.
