LE MACINE 6 sleeps, holiday villa with stone barbecue, infinity pool and breathtaking view of Tuscan landscapes near Siena



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Sleeps: 6. Bedrooms: 3, Bathrooms: 3

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Le Macine is a farmhouse which the owners finished renovating with great skill in 2011. It dates to the beginning of the 20th century and its name derives from the fact that along the entrance drive are present two antique millstones of an old oil mill. The renovation was carried out using the classic materials with which farmhouses were built in the past: from Barberino stone for the walls to terracotta floors, open-face beams and the travertine used for the showers in the bathrooms. The house is situated between the Val d’Orcia, a well-known area for the presence of the crete senesi (Siennese clays) and centres of great interest such as Pienza and Montalcino, and the Maremma, known for its vast countryside extending to the Tyrrhenian Sea. The little town of Castel del Piano is just a few kilometres away. It enjoys a splendid panorama of the surrounding hills, enabling one to appreciate the three old castles which in the past dominated from on high this part of Tuscany.


The farmhouse consists of two storeys. The main entrance, situated under the panoramic portico, leads directly into the living room with an imposing fireplace (which functions as a wood stove). On the left of the living room is the spacious kitchen which also has direct access to the portico, furnished with table and chairs for outdoor meals. Between the kitchen and the living room a corridor leads to the sleeping area on the ground floor, composed of a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) with ensuite bathroom with shower. From the kitchen a terracotta staircase leads to the first floor with another double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and a panoramic balcony overlooking the surrounding hills and valleys.


The fenced-in property extends over about 1 hectare of land sited on two terracings. The part of the garden around the house is planted with lawn, with cypresses and olives. Between the house and the swimming pool is a large brickwork barbecue. The portico is the ideal spot for outdoor dining whilst enjoying the panorama of the splendid Tuscan countryside.

Swimming Pool

Five terracotta steps lead down to the pool which is set about 10 metres from the house in a panoramic position. It measures 7 x 10 m with a constant depth of 1.40 m. The pool is entered by large steps; it is lined with sand-coloured PVC and has chlorine purification. The pool border is in stone while the solarium area is paved in terracotta. Sun beds and sun umbrella as well as a coldwater shower are at the guests’ disposal. The pool is open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October.
