About the property

Molino le Gualchiere

Molino le Gualchiere (The Mill) is an old mill just below the medieval village of Loro Ciuffenna, facing the Chianti hills perfect for familys and groups.

The location is superb, equidistant from Florence, Siena and Arezzo and the place itself is utterly beautiful, with vineyards, olives, a river at the end of the property; at the end of a small side road with no traffic, it is completely calm in its setting.

The farm borders on the Ciuffenna River and produces wine, olive oil, fruit and vegetables. Three small buildings have been restored traditionally, creating five attractive apartments in and around the main house with form one to three bedrooms each.

We have now 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

Optional activities

We have many programs and activities to propose: mountain biking, hiking (including free walks with guides in nature reserves with translation into English), horseback riding, learning about the regional cuisines of Italy by participating in cooking classes and/or wine tastings, painting classes, yoga and meditation classes, Thai massage

Heerlijke plek voor wie van rust houdt

  • 5 of 5

Wij verbleven deze zomer in La Capanna. Een vrijstaande 4 persoonswoning op het terrein. De woning bestond uit twee afzonderlijke delen. Ideaal voor ons als gezin met 2 studerende kinderen. Ieder zijn eigen stek. De woning was sfeervol ingericht. De keuken was zeer compleet. Er is geen aparte woonkamer. Dat is zeker geen probleem in de zomer. Wij verbleven nauwelijks binnen en zaten vooral op de heerlijke veranda, of rondom het zwembad. Hoewel alle huizen op het terrein bezet waren, was het niet druk of rumoerig. De locatie is goed. Arezzo, Siena en Florence binnen een uur met de auto te bereiken. Ook voor wandelingen is het huis een goede uitvalsbasis. De eigenaren zijn zeer vriendelijk en belangstellend; de beheerder zeer behulpzaam.

Toscane op haar best!

  • 4 of 5

We hebben een ontzettend genoten van ons verblijf hier. 'La Cassetta' is een onderdeel van 'Molino de Gualchierre', ooit een oude molen met bijgebouwen waarvan je de resten nog kunt zien. Het appartement heeft een kleine basic zitkamer/keuken (maar je zit toch buiten) en er zijn 2 heerlijke slaapkamers en een terrasje waar je uitzicht hebt op de grote tuin en andere gebouwen. Het zwembad is mooi en er is een overdekt terras waar je even bij kunt komen van de zon of lekker kunt lezen. Ook onder de grote boom bij de rivier kun je je plekje vinden. Pas op voor de everzwijntjes 's avonds! In Loro Ciufenna (5 minuten met auto) kun je heerlijk eten en er is een goede ijszaak en super pizzeria (Dimicla). Arezzo, Sienna en Florence zijn goed bereikbaar en ook de wijnliefhebbers kunnen hun hart ophalen in deze streek. Daarbij vermeld dat de eigenaar Roberto (en beheerder Daniele) zeer gastvrij is en goede tips geeft maakt dit een plekje waar we zeker terugkomen!

Loro Ciuffenna
Car: recommended

A very quiet location, in the heart of Tuscany 30 miles from Firenze and Siena and 20 from Arezzo.

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 .

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 ArnoValley( Rocca Ricciarda and La Trappola are at950 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 Casamona, you can visit a family run cheese farm: you can make a beautiful walk ( or drive silently with an electric little car) through the pasture land “meeting” cows rough grazing; then you can see how cheese is produced from the milking to the seasoning:the old cellar where they keep the cheese is worth a visit by itself.

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”.

• 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 connectingFiesoletoArezzocalled “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.

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