Il Molinaccio, an old watermill along the Salcheto river has 7 confortable rooms . The big swimming pool is cleaned using salt, a relief for the skin and eyes of our guests. A 3D Archery range is available. Enjoy our Wine,Grappa and Finocchiaccio

The space

The watermill “Il Molinaccio”, near the renaissance town of Montepulciano, was already present in the old maps of the Granduchy of Tuscany . The original building, duly and let me say passionately restored, now reopens as a luxury country house where the guests may spend their time, in absolute quietness, surrounded by a colorful garden, bordered by century old oaks, our fruit grove and the vineyard.
In front of the villa, positioned among the walls of the old trench where the water was collected and, via a channel, sent to the watermill, there is the new infinity swimming pool.
It is not a normal pool chlorine, but a swimming pool cleaned with salt, that of Volterra Salt mines , the same used by the Etruscans . This disinfection system is a lot more healthy, no chemicals added. Among the advantages : less red eyes , the tan is better maintained and of course it is easier to swim. The water taste slightly and pleasantly salty.
The small forest is crossed by the river Salcheto, along which we have realized a walking footpath with natural bridges, good for plenty of exercise or relax, on the wooden handmade benches, enjoying the natural landscape. 3D targets, representing local animals, have been positioned along the river, upgrading it to a fully fledged Field Archery Range, where professional and amateurs may try their capabilities or learn this ancient sport with the help of a skilled trainer.

Il Molinaccio is by and far its 3.6 ha vineyard, whose grapes are used for our Rosso di Montepulciano DOC , named Il Golo, and for La Spinosa, our Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG.
Our marc is distilled into Grappa di Vino Nobile ( by the prestigious Nannoni distilleries) and we produce Il Finocchiaccio, alcoholic infusion of wild fennel harvested at our estate ( by Capalbio Liquori).
In order to fulfill our green spirit we have decided to start the certified transition to organic farming, which will be completed in the next years, we purify the water of our well, making us auto sufficient, and we have installed a photovoltaic plant that covers all our energy needs and let us offer free recharge for their electric vehicle to our guests.
Dinner is on request but have a try. Edy and Alessandro will surprise you with good local dishes full of the produces of our orchard. Our fruit is transformed in jam, good for breakfast or as filling in our pies.
On request we may organize Truffle search & find walks
Last but not least have a look to the fine posters, printed between WWI and II, placed on the walls of the spacious dining room.

Excellent location to base yourself for visits to Montepulciano, Val d'Orcia and Montalcino. Very easy to get around to all the major sights and beautiful scenery. The grounds and home are gorgeous, and there is everything you need. Alessandro was a wonderful host, and even shared some of his fantastic wine. We loved to getting to see him make the wine right there on the property.

Our stay at Il Molinaccio was outstanding. Alessandro was an incredibly warm host and provided us with great recommendations around the area. The location is perfect, nestled in a beautiful setting a short drive from charming Montepulciano. The room itself was perfect- it looked exactly as listed and gave us lots of comfortable space. The estate is on a working winery so if you come at the right time you can get in on the action! Alessandro and team were bottling their 2014 vintage on the day we left so we were able to learn about the process. Would highly recommend Il Molinaccio for couples or groups- we'll definitely be back if we can! Thank you Alessandro and family!

Our room opened directly out into the garden, only twenty yards from the salt water pool and deck chairs. Alessandro gave us a wonderful introduction to the property, and the wine they produce. We were only a ten minute drive outside Montepulciano. Breakfast included some tasty local touches. We would have loved to stay longer and are very eager to fit il Molinaccio into a future visit to Tuscany.

Alessandro was great. The house is a piece of history. His tour of his vineyard and wine cellar made for a nice additional to our experiences in the region. It was a beautiful quiet location to unwind for a few days, especially with such close access to Montepuliciano. I couldn't complain about a thing..... well maybe that I didn't have few more days to stay.

Nato a Sina ma residente a Montepulciano quasi da sempre, Alessandro sarà lieto di accogliervi presso il nostro agriturismo ed oltre ad essere un ottima guida per scoprire gli scorci nascosti di Montepulciano e dei paesi limitrofi , può prepararvi gustosi piatti locali come i Pici e le carni alla brace o, accompagnarvi a visitare i vigneti ed ad assaggiare il vino che producono oppure portarvi nel nostro bosco a tirare con l’arco nel percorso con sagome 3D, in ogni caso sarà lieto di coccolarvi durante il vostro soggiorno al Molinaccio.


I have been living in Montepulciano all my life and be sure I will be able to show you what Tuscany means. My friends consider me a good Chef and I will be delighted to propose you good local dishes for dinner , using our produce and local food when available. Il Molinaccio has been my Home till last year and I do consider it an incredible place for anybody willing to plug off and recharge its batteries.
By the way if you have an electric car you can recharge it at Il Molinaccio for free!
Enjoy
