Villa MULINELLO approx. 90 sqm, renovated in 1990, is the result of different interventions on the original structure from the 17th century, a tower. It consists of 2 levels: on the ground floor a living room with a fireplace, which is the centre of the house, the entrance to the three rooms and a wooden staircase leads to the upper floor, where there is a large living room with fireplace. The kitchen is also accessed directly from the outside via a terrace, which is equipped with table and chairs. Bathrooms: a bathroom with tub and a small bathroom with toilet and bidet, assigned to one of the rooms. Simple antique furniture form the décor. An oak and a stones give shade and freshness. Extensive outdoor facilities around the house. Barbecue (only in the house). Washing machine, central heating and hot water, drinking water, baby cot and high chair. Sun loungers, garden table and garden chairs.
Capanne di Sopra is located 1.4 km from the medieval village of Montefollonico and enjoys a splendid panoramic view above the Montepulciano’s valley and its XV century temple of Saint Biagio. At 450 mts above sea level, the horizon widens onto the skyline of Montepulciano to the south, Val d’Orcia hilly border and top of Mount Amiata to the west, the hill of Montefollonico to the north.
The farm covers a 5 hectars hilly surface, with an olive grove and a small vineyard, from which owners get directly an “extravergine” olive oil, and a Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG red wine. The two stone farmhouses of the property -six sleeping places each- have been restored in accordance with Tuscan traditions, and carefully furnished with pieces coming from owner's family.
* The two houses, although closed one another, are independent and assure absolutely privacy to residents.
To preserve the rural character of the site the owners chose not to build any swimming pool. In any city nearby there is a public swimming pool. Thermal spas of Chianciano, Bagno Vignoni, Bagni San Filippo and Rapolano Terme are no more than half an hour drive.
Guests have the availability of all the house and the adjoining outer parts.
Some 400 meters from the bituminized road, the site remains secluded while accessible only via a private driveway, ensuring that you'll be holidaying in the midst of olive groves, vineyards and woods.
Parking area at the entrance of the property.

We bought the property more than 20 years ago. Done a big restauration work, in several installments. Planted olive trees and more wine. Reshaped the cellar, we make wine and oil for the family and guests, not a commercial production, although under certification procedures. We are retired, an ex computers systems manager and a librarian archeologist.
