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 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 with salt. 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 Alessandro and Marco 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 3.5 ha vineyard, whose grapes are used for our Rosso di Montepulciano DOC , named il Golo, and they will become in due time La Spinosa, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG (from 2015) .
Our vinasse 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 due time our project includes Vin Santo doc and the famous Occhio di Pernice ( it will take a few more years to taste it…)
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 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. Alessandro will surprise you with good local dishes full of the produces of our orchard. Our fruit is transformed in jam, good as it is for breakfast or filled in the pies anytime.
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.

limited but available if needed
Montepulciano is placed in a way that you may do daily trips to Siena, Assisi and Orvieto as well as Rome and Florence.
The agriturismo is nice with a good room and bathroom! They do not ofer breakfest! The host is very nice and helpful! The place is 5 km from the city center and a little hard to find in gps, get the cordinades!
Very lovely villa right outside Montepulciano town. The check in process was a little difficult as we had some trouble locating the place, there was no address given until later and even then, the iPhone maps was not pointing to the correct address, but eventually with a little luck and patience we were finally able to find the villa. Just don't try to find the place at night when the roads are dark and it is more difficult to see. Otherwise, the villa was excellent, the grounds were amazing and we really wanted to be able to use the pool but it was pretty cold. Otherwise, Marco was nice enough to show my husband around the grounds at eat walnuts and grapes. My only other minor complaint was about the bathroom, whenever we used the sink, there would be little gnats that would be attracted to the water, so we would find a surprise of little black specks every morning until we washed them off the basin. Otherwise, overall good experience, just don't drive over there after dark.
Il Molinaccio is a great and lovely place for a short or long term stay.
It's like you are in a story with tuscanian elements and landscapes. Everything - the house, the rooms, the surroundings and the pool - is very very nice. You have there everything you would ever need. It's quiet and still, just perfect.
Alessandro and Marco are making sure that you have everything, if anything is in need.
Also, in a country where wi-fi is not really working great, the signal at Il Molinaccio was very good.
Last but not least, the wine Alessandro and Marco make theirselves is fabulous - we bought a bunch of bottles for those at home :)
Long story short, don't hesitate! It will be a beautiful experience.
Wonderful stay!!!! We stayed in a separate small house in Il Molinaccio di Montepulciano!! It is a typical Tuscan property with a wineyard. There was also a great swimming pool! Alessandro and Marco are so nice and helful hosts! They cooked a delicious dinner for us! We highly recommand to stay in Il Molinaccio!! We will come back!!
Great place, alessandro was welcoming. Great swimming pool. We were lucky to find a last minute place in Alessandro's B&B.

We recommand to chill out or have active visiting program in the area.
Charming environment, with a Lot of wine and Land around it, Nice New Pool and clean rooms. Had a really Good dinner there! Super friendly couple, Would definetely Book again if in the area!
In kurzen Worten lässt sich kaum zusammenfassen, wie toll unser Aufenthalt bei Alessandro war. Das Haus: ein Traum. Unser Zimmer: herrlich verträumt. Der Pool: kalt! brrrr, aber Super klasse. Das Grundstück: riesig. Alessandro: Mega locker, extrem zuvorkommend, bemüht uns einen angenehmen Aufenthalt zu gewährleisten und er hat auch noch ganz hervorragend für uns gekocht. Ok, seine Frau Edy hat geholfen (ebenfalls ganz bezaubernd!). Aber der Abend war unvergesslich.
Il Molinacchio ist sowas von zu empfehlen! Ich kann nur die Höchstnote verteilen! Wir werden wiederkommen, das steht fest!
...è stata davvero un esperienza emozionante, anche se solo per pochi giorni.
Un casolare bellissimo immerso nel verde a pochi minuti da Montepulciano. Per chi desidera staccare completamente la spina e godersi , solo i suoni della natura. Grazie Alessandro, e grazie anche a Fusi, la piccola gattina del Molinaccio che ogni sera quando rientravamo veniva ad accompagnarci fino alla porta della stanza, una vera guida turistica in miniatura, molto discreta e simpatica. Spero la incontriate anche voi.
Stanze bellissime, bella piscina e tantissimi alberi, sembra ...una casetta nel bosco incantato, spero di tornarci presto. Bruno ....e Silvia
