Description

Asciano Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

only a few km away from Siena and the most beautiful twons in Tuscany

In 1996 we moved to the Crete Senesi and we fell in love with the Molinello: Etruscan origins, medieval mill, peace and tranquillity. That’s why we decided to share it with our guests.

The farm keeps the whole family busy: Alessandro (biologist, nature guide and Sommelier), Elisa who looks after the administration, Mauro and Paola, retired but full time busy on the farm. And we hope that in the future even Emma, Guido and Bernardo will give us a helping hand.

We produce vegetables and fruit, olive oil and truffles from organic agriculture.

For our guests we organize a rich programme of initiatives discovering the colours and flavours of the Crete, wine tasting in our cosy winery and excursions by bike guided by Alessandro who is fond of cycling.

A slice of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Agriturismo Il Molinello is truly a slice of heaven on earth. And you don’t have to be an American tourist to think so. My husband is northern Italian, and he has threatened to show up for the olive harvest so that he can work for his room and board. Cycling through the region is also phenomenal. One particular road provides a heart-pounding descent and the Crete (clay) hillsides on either side are freakishly reminiscent of the dunes of Namibia. (Ask Sandro - he knows those roads like the lines on his hand.)

Good Place for exploring Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Il Molinello is a wonderful old typical Tuscany farm house with a large playground and garden to relax in. The pool is big enough for a refreshing swim and a quiet (off season) place for relaxing after a wonderful tour through the Crete landscape with it's famous locations as Montpulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, Siena... witch are all in a good distance for daily trips. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The House is far from traffic noise and you can listen to the swallow songs in the morning. Breakfast is fantastic with all the regional products and homemade bread. Elisa, Alessandro and Carmen are the good ghost with lots of information about what to do, Paula and Mauro keep the garden fit and always have time for a short chat. We really can recommend Il Molinello as a good place to enjoy your holidays for families but also for young and "old" couples.

Welcome to the world’s most photographed panorama! There is indeed no piece of this landscape left that has not already become a snapshot. A wide sea of clay spreads out over the countryside Southeast of Siena: one evocative, soft hill follows the other, the few forests leave space to the endless stretches of wheat fields and grassland, able to change their colours with the succession of the seasons.The Crete Senesi are indeed a quite different world.
