We had an amazing time with Sebastiano. I traveled with my husband, 2 children (4 &2), my parents, and my sister. We had more than enough space to spread out and truly feel at home. We had a bit of a problem finding the villa, but once we did and plugged in the coordinates it was a lot easier to find. Using coordinates vs. addresses in Italy is much easier. We spent a lot of time by the pool during the day and cooking in the pizza oven at night. Sebastiano was very helpful in teaching us how to cook in a pizza oven. By the end of the week my kids didn't want to leave! I would recommend this place to all my friends!
I really want to recommend this place! We stayed with our family (11 persons) for one week in this fantastic house. It's a really big house so space and privacy enough!
The house really looks like shown on the pictures, even better maybe. It's full of really nice (antique) furniture. All in the same style.
The garden is great, full of fruittrees (shadow) and with a nice refreshing and clean pool!
We loved the terrace with pergola with the long wooden family-table! Good for night long conversations, drinks, etc.
We also enjoyed the pingpongtable and made our own dinner in the (pizza)oven daily. With the friendly help from Sebastiano (with hands, feet, some French and English :-)
He also made us some of his specialties (we especially loved his potatoes and onions). And one day he asked his colleague Margaritha for a really pizza-dinner.
Concluding; could not have been better!
By the way: beautiful surroundings. Some nice towns close-by. For the big supermarket you have to get to poggibonsi (that's about 20 minutes). We had a lot of plans but it was difficult to get away from the pool and house ;-)
Molino is a tranquil hideaway nestled in the Tuscan hills between Florence & Siena. Our party consisted of 5 adults & one toddler - there was plenty of space for us all.
Sebastiano was a welcoming and helpful host without impinging on our privacy. We would happily recommend this gem of a place to anyone looking for a slice of rustic charm.
I highly recommend staying in Sebastiano’s villa: We spent 7 nights as a party of 4 + 2 babies there and enjoyed it a lot. The villa indeed looks like shown on the pictures and is beautifully located on impressively large premises. Most of our time we spent by the pool, on the large patio or cooking together in the kitchen. Sebastiano was also very helpful in showing us how to prepare perfectly made pizzas in his wood-fired outdoor-oven – highly appreciated. The place is conveniently located to explore Sienna, Florence, or the Tuscany vineries – Sebastiano also here offered some good tips. Only thing that could be improved is the level of cleanliness in the villa. No issue for us, but you should not expect 5-star-hotel cleanliness if you decide to stay in this country- villa. Overall stong recommendation to stay here.
Très belle maison dans un très bel endroit
L'accueil de Sebastiano a été très bon. La maison est immense avec de grandes chambres, un grand salon, une immense cuisine en ilôt.
Cette maison est situé au creux d'un vallon ce qui permet d'avoir beaucoup de fraîcheur le soir après de torrides journées. en revanche il faut faire 1km pour voir les vallons de Toscane, donc ici pas de vue surplombant une vallée. Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié le grand jardin sécurisé qui a permis à nos 5 enfants de s'amuser sans que nous en soucions. la piscine est agréable, fraîche et sécurisée.
Bref si vous êtes à plusieurs familles ou un bande de copains, vous apprécierez certainement cet endroit, pour lui même et aussi comme point de départ central pour explorer la région.
Enfin sébastiano nous a permis de profiter pleinement de son four à bois, et nous avons chaque jour pu faire d'excellentes grillades au feu de bois et autre pizzas.
If you dream of a holiday "under the Tuscan sun" look no further.
The villa is conveniently located to all major cities such as Siena and Florence. It is situated on extensive grounds with outdoor wood burning pizza oven and luxurious pool. The interior of the home is enormous -- each bedroom more charming than the next.
Sebastiano's picturesque villa is everything you dream a Tuscan getaway to be and he is the kind of host you hope for. He is accommodating and warm there isn't anything he won't do in order to make you comfortable.
