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.

"Perfect family getaway"

This is a large house with extensive gardens. It has big spaces for everyone to be together and plenty of secluded corners for a bit of peace and quiet. The house stayed cool inside even when the temperature outside got to 35°C
The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped and you can seat 22 around the big dining table by the pool with ease and the gas barbeque could feed more than that.
It was perfect for our large family with children from 6 to 16 and grandparents up to 75.
It is well situated between Radda and Gaiole with shops and restaurants within just a few minutes drive. We will definitely book again.
