Beautiful independent Villa obtained from the total restoration of a grain mill that dates back to 1606. The origins of the mill are uncertain but it was probably in operation in the same period that the Abbazia di Sant'Antimo was built, and provided flour to the Abbey monks. Shops and restaurants are at 1.5 kms, while Montalcino, famous for its Brunello wine, is at 9 kms. Siena is at 57 kms and Firenze is at 120 kms. The mill looks like it was taken directly from a book of fairy tales: the little arched bridge, the water flow ditch, and many minor details have been restored with punctilious care. The private 7 X 10 meter swimming pool is the only external modern feature and it has been set into the original mill course above the structure. The mill is reached by a dirt track that leads through a gate opening onto the parking area. From there, there is a walkway leading to the house. The property is partially fenced in to afford privacy and has olive groves, fruit trees and woodlands. The position is very peaceful and private.The mill is in a green valley surrounded by soft hills.
