A converted mill

"I had a farm in ..." The famous line "Out of Africa" could just as well apply to this estate between Arezzo and Siena, only one hour south of Florence.

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 stonewalls which used to channel the water from nearby stream towards the mill. Today these two walls form a natural enclosure for the pool.

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 traditional wooden table for informal breakfasts, and an adjacent larder. Also on the ground floor, but with a seperate entrance, is a single room with shower, and the laundry. The first floor has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. A further double room and single room with bath is reached over an outdoor passage.

The garden (6000 m2) has many inviting corners for reading, writing or dozing in the shade, all fully equipped with outdoor furniture.

At 400 metres above sea level, the organic farm farm produces olive oil and raises the wiede-horned white local cattle, although only part of its five hundred hectares is devoted to agriculture. The rest is covered with Mediterranean bush and woodland where the cattle can roam free and seek the shade during the summer months.

The estate was acquired by the actual owner in the 1960's. They already had a large organic farm in Northern Italy and a busy life in Milan and the feeling here is that they sought to create a bucolic ideal of a simple lifestyle in harmony with nature and the local farmers. Scattered all over the farmland are fifteen farmhouses, one more lovely than the other, overlooking a magnificent Tuscan lanscape of rolling hills dotted with umbrella pines and cypress trees punctuating the horizon. The first farmhouse to be restored for guests is Mulino or the Mill.

Additional amenities: 2 hair dryers, 4 bicycles for adults and 1 bicycle for a child, Aeroccino (milk frother), Airport distance:Florence 120 km Pisa 250 km Rome 250 km, Filter coffee machine, Food processor, Internet WIFI connection via DSL, Iron and ironing board, Juicer, Marshall MP3 player, Nespresso coffee machine, Ping Pong Table, Pool: 5 x 15m, Pool can be gated on request, Private Chef, Stove with oven, Vine covered pergola for outdoor meals
