We transferred from a big city 20 years ago to experience a different life and we like to share with our guest the beauty of Tuscany and its countryside : we never regretted it.

We have joined forces with a local organisation which cares for partially disabled young people, mainly affected by Down's Syndrome, in a venture which will enable these young people to help in the daily work of the Molino. This will give them the opportunity to experience not only the the rural activities of a small estate, but also of helping to look after guests in the apartments. Activities will be jointly planned and supervised, and all rental income from the guests will be wholly used to support and further the work of the association..

Claudia Pietrini purchased this farmhouse in 1991

A guest review : Visiting Molino le Gualchiere in September was absolutely amazing. The grapes were ripe as were the figs, plums and apples. The farm is quaint and the apartment is lovely accommodation.

Loro Ciufenna is a beautiful old town which was having its annual festival while we were there. Some of the best pasta you will eat is in Loro Ciufenna ........

The apartments are attractive, country Tuscan and extremely comfortable. The environment is easy, relaxing and beautiful beyond description.

Amazing and peaceful Tuscan farm stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Molino le Gualchiere for a week and it was everything we had hoped it would be and more. Laura and Roberto are the consummate hosts. They were incredibly warm, accommodating and very helpful with day trip and restaurant recommendations. The place itself is incredible. The grounds are beautiful, green, filled with olive trees and very well taken care of. The pool is fantastic and the apartment we stayed in (La Stanzina) felt like home immediately. It's clean, there's a great, functional kitchen, two bathrooms with a shower each, a comfortable queen-sized bed, towels and a second guest bed. Perfect for a couple. The other guests on the farm during the week were also lovely so it was always a place we were happy to come home to after a day of sight-seeing, wine touring and eating. The town - Loro Ciuffenna - was a beautiful, small, old village with a few cafes, shops (especially a great meat/cheese/fresh pasta shop with the nicest shopkeeper), a bakery, a handful of restaurants, a great gelato place and a Monday market. We walked there a bunch from the farm but it's also a 5 minute drive. It's tiny enough that you'll feel like it's your own town right away but with enough going on that it's a perfect home-base while you visit other, bigger towns. One night, there was a bistecca fiorentina barbeque in the piazza with everyone sitting at picnic tables, going to town on the region's most famous dish. I would highly recommend this stay to anyone looking to be immersed in Tuscan culture in a peaceful and picture-perfect Tuscan setting. You won't regret it.

Entspannen in romantischer Atmosphäre

  • 5 of 5
Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Das ganze Gut ist liebevoll nostalgisch restauriert und trotzdem muss man keinen modernen Komfort vermissen. Wir waren 1 Woche dort und wären gern noch eine weitere geblieben. Unsere 11 jährige Tochter hat den Pool genossen , die 17jährige die vielen fotografischen Inspirationen und wir das ruhige Entspannen auf Terasse und Hängematte. Der 2 stündige Kochkurs mit Claudia ist unbedingt zu empfehlen. Die Betten haben sich sehr gut geschlafen und es hat Spaß gemacht, dem Treiben auf dem Hof zuzuschauen und ein bisschen ländliches Italien zu erleben. Da Claudia sehr gut englisch spricht, konnten wir auch viel fragen und erfahren. Das nahe gelegene Loro Ciuffena hat einige kleine, tolle Restaurants bzw. Bars. Die Bedienung dort spricht teilweise auch englisch. Man kann in der Gegend sehr schön wandern bzw. spazieren, man kann aber auch Florenz in einer knappen Stunde erreichen (bzw. Arrezzo in einer guten halben Stunde). Ein wirklich gelungener Urlaub, den wir gern weiter empfehlen für Menschen mit und ohne Kinder.

lovely island in tuscany country

  • 3 of 5
We enjoyed our stay a lot. The appartement was very good, spaceful and well equiped. It was clean and well-maintained. But the best was the huge terrasse, where you can sit in the sun and in the shadow with an open fireplace to have a barbeque. The people, who are responsible are so kind and helpful. Loro chuiffena also was very lovely. They had good restaurants there. The only inconvenience was the quite long way to a large supermarket. A small one is in Loro chuiffena.

Wonderful stay in beatiful an quiet surroundings

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at 'Molino le Gualchiere' with our three children (aged 4 , 7 and 9)
They enjoyed the large and well-maintained swimming pool, spacious play areas, petanque field...
Special thanks to Claudia for her helpful guidelines and tips.
Without her we would never reached the property (we forgot our directions) , guiding us from roundabout to roundabout by phone ;-)
We also very enjoyed the Friday Tuscan dinner served on the property.
Hope to come back soon.

Loro Ciuffenna is the closest village .

This is a lovely medieval village with an amazing view on the river Ciuffenna. Here you will not find souvenirs for tourists but traditional family run shops, a colourful weekly market, traditional Italian coffee shops, ice-cream shops and a selection of very good restaurants ( 2 of them recommended by Michelin Guide), “osterie” ( one of them recommended by Slow Food Guide) and “pizzerie”, of course.

Definitely a little town where you can breath an old times Tuscan atmosphere.

Loro Ciuffenna could be a great starting point for a variety of excursions and activities such as:

• Sightseeing on Pratomagno mountains

Driving for 15-25 minutes you can reach unique hidden villages on the slopes of Pratomagno mountains.

All of them have a spectacular view on the Arno Valley ( Rocca Ricciarda and La Trappola are at 950 m. above the sea level)

Centuries of history, beautiful forests, old mills, silence and…. good food!

In Chiassaia, an old village of 50 permanent inhabitants, Varis, the baker, makes a local flat bread called “schiacciata” with no chemicals ingredients baked in a wood oven.

There you can enjoy a very good brunch with salty and sweet delicacies feeling you jumped back in time of at least 50 years…

In Gorgiti, known for its delicious chestnut flour, you can learn the history of chestnut by the words of local inhabitants and visit a special building called “seccatoio”.

Of course this area is perfect to organize trekking and mountain bikes tours and we can offer tailored itineraries with professional local guides.

This is the land of wild boars, hares, deer, hedge hogs, badgers and foxes, to say nothing about the birds!

We can also organize trout fishing all along the wild Ciuffenna river whose waters are so pure that it is still possible to see crayfishes.

• Sightseeing all along the Chianti hills and the Arno Valley

Molino delle Gualchiere is located along one of the Wine Roads of Tuscany, an ancient Etruscan road that was connecting Fiesole to Arezzo called “Strada dei Setteponti”;

all along this panoramic country road there are farms producing very good wines ( some of them recommended by Wine Spectator ) and wine tasting tours there are interesting and amusing.

Most of the farms are situated next to medieval hamlets worth visiting,

like Il Borro, property of Ferragamo’s family and beautiful Gropina with its

Romanesque Parish church declared world heritage site.

The Chianti Classico, with its widely known wine producers, can also be an alternative wine tasting destination.

In this area it is very easy to combine the wine tour with a visit to historical castles and villas.

To quote few names: Meleto Castle, a medieval castle perfectly preserved, Brolio Castle with its

gardens, from where you can enjoy one of the most beautiful sight over a traditional Tuscan

landscape, Badia a Coltibuono a fascinating ancient Abbey, Volpaia nested on top of a hill.

Pls. take note that all sites listed above are easily reachable from Molino Gualchiere in 15/ 40 minutes driving.

The Arno Valley in the nearby of Molino delle Gualchiere offers a spectacular view over a unique landscape. Cliffs called “balze” with pinnacles and spires

created during the centuries, a fabulous scenery that you can see behind the portrait of Monnalisa and in other drawings and painting of Leonardo da Vinci. There are quite a number of paths to follow even walking directly from Molino Gualchiere. We organize guided excursions according with the

specific demand of our guests.

• City of Arts

Florence is easily reachable by car or by train ( the closest railway station is at 10 km.)

Siena and San Gimignano can be reached by car trough the “castles road”, a unique itinerary.

Arezzo and Cortona could be visited in a day trip.

Every first week-end of the month in Arezzo there is an Antiques Fair “Fiera Antiquaria”, known throughout Italy and Europe either as a traditional appointment for antiques dealers and collectors as for the beauty of the places where it is held. In fact the Fair develops in the medieval centre of Arezzo, surrounded by historical buildings and work of arts.

Worth a visit also the medieval towns of Anghiari and Sansepolcro

We can previously book the tickets for museums or exhibitions in all the above mentioned towns and we organize

half a day or full day guided tour.
