Description from owner

Mulino in Italian means Mill and this house used to be the mill of the estate. It still retains some of the original features including the two long stone walls which used to channel the water from a nearby stream towards the mill. Today these two walls form a natural enclosure for the pool.

Il Mulino is a building that has evolved over time, bit by bit. It began as a tower and then grew with the needs of each new generation, acquiring additions and extensions as the years went by. The result is a fairytale house with plenty of nooks and crannies, doors and passageways and steps leading “upstairs and downstairs and in my lady's chamber”.

On the ground floor is a large living and dining room with a fireplace and French windows leading onto a terrace covered in vines for al fresco meals. The well-equipped kitchen has a marble-topped table for informal breakfasts as well as an adjacent larder; as well as a single bedroom with shower, and a laundry room.

The Tuscany region

Because Tuscany is the cradle of the Renaissance (late 14th to early 16th centuries) its towns cast a spell like no other. You walk through Florence, Sienna and Pisa in a daydream, looking up. Between majestic palaces and outsize domes, there are so many treasures to marvel at. A maze of a thousand and one backstreets, the magic of countless squares, fountains dotted here and there: everything is an invitation to dream and to a delightful interlude. As you wander through Tuscany, you lose yourself in it.

But Tuscany is the region of a thousand and one hills too. Its breath-taking landscapes will make you want to roam the countryside and race down its valleys; and on the hilltops, you will discover perfect medieval gems: the villages of San Gimignano and Volterra will plunge you straight back into the Middle-Ages. In Montepulciano, Montalcino and in the Chianti region more generally, you will at last savour inimitable wines such as the famous Brunello or the Chianti classico.

It was in Italy, and specifically in Tuscany, that the exceptional era of the Renaissance began in the 15th century. The period was characterised by great economic and artistic prosperity and Florence was its dazzling incarnation. Thanks to a very wealthy banking family, the Medici, Florence acquired a wealth of artistic treasures. Today, the city is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Middle Ages were also a very prosperous period for Tuscany. In spite of incessant strife and of the Great Plague, which carried off half of the population between 1348 and 1349, the textile industry and trade brought wealth to the towns. Tuscan architects threw themselves straight away into the construction of daring and elaborate buildings.

Lucignano

The nearest village is the medieval Lucignano on a hilltop, famous for its eliptic streets. Here you will find grocery stores, cafés, newsstands, banks and simple trattorias. A detailed list of restaurants recommended in the vicinity can be found in the farmhouse.

But you will not want to miss the surrounding villages such as Monte San Savino, Foiano, Sinalunga and Castiglion Fiorentino as well as the medieval hamlet of Gargonza, all of which will conform in their picturesque perfection to everyone's dream of a hilltop Tuscan village.

Arezzo is the next largish town. You will not want to miss the frescoes by Piero della Francesca in the Basilica San Francesco. If you are at the Mulino on the first week-end of the month, you might also want to visit the antique market on the main square.

Florence et Siena, Tuscany’s most important cultural milestones, are easy to reach from La Badia.

A walk through the estate La Badia is an enriching experience which brings you closer to the surroundings. Just follow one of the paths that lead uphill from il Mulino. You will come past the main house of the estate, many yet to be restored farms, a small lake, wild animals and the famous longhorned Tuscan cows. The views stretch accross the estate towards the Orcia valley and the silhouette of the castle of Radicofani in the far back.

Fashion addicts can splurge out at the famous Prada factory outlet, which lies on to road to Florence.

Two excellent SPAs can be found in the surroundings. Rapolano Terme (18 km from La Badia).
