MULINO CINTOIA 8 sleeps, Tuscan villa with garden and pool in the Chianti area



Updated: 04-Oct-2016
Sleeps: 8 Bedrooms: 4, Bathrooms: 4

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Mulino Cintoia is the outcome of the renovation of an old water mill dating back to the 16th century, situated on the historic Mill Route, in a territory that once belonged to the Curia of Fiesole. It is immersed in the green hill country south of Florence, in the heart of Chianti Classico, a beautiful region famous worldwide for its picture postcard scenery and for the excellence of its wines and just a few kilometres from the borgo of Greve, considered the 'gateway to Chianti', halfway between the centre of Florence and Siena. Cloaked by dense woodland and bordered by the crystal clear stream that flows under the original Roman bridge, the house is the ideal retreat for those who appreciate natural landscapes and wish to spend a relaxing holiday in a cozy, intimate atmosphere, where the silence is broken only by the chirping of birds and the gurgling waters of the stream. The house has been renovated following eco-sustainable principles, salvaging, where possible, the original materials but also using local materials, such as travertine marble, sandstone, chestnut wood and terracotta from Impruneta, which have integrated perfectly with the original ones. All around is the colourful garden with large swimming pool and many areas set up for outdoor living. From here, a short country lane leads to the main road which leads to the various wonderful places that dot the area and are easily accessible, thanks to the excellent road conditions, Driving north through the scenic Chiantigiana, bordered by the geometric vineyards and olive groves that cover the hills, you quickly get to Florence; driving south, you pass through the charming little villages of Greve, Panzano and Castellina, rich in artistic treasures, churches, Renaissance villas and castles perched on panoramic hills, until you reach Siena.


The house has two floors. The main entrance door on the ground floor leads into the living area, a single room comprising lounge, with sofas, satellite TV and a beautiful working fireplace, dining area and a fully equipped kitchen, with a French window leading to the outdoor dining area. The floor is completed by a bathroom with hydromassage tub next to a spiral staircase that leads to the double bedroom upstairs. A staircase in wood and marble leads up from the living room to the sleeping area on the first floor, composed of three double bedrooms with queen-size bed, each with ensuite bathroom with shower, and the double bedroom with study area and spiral staircase which connects with the bathroom with hydromassage bath on the ground floor. Two of the four bedrooms have direct access from the portico on the large external loggia set up with the outdoor living areas and the swimming pool. The laudry room, with coin washing machine and coin dryer, is placed on the basement in proximity of the pool, beside the toilet.


The park, bordered at the back by a high rocky wall and at the front by the dense woodland that borders the property, covers about 800 sq m and is set on two levels. Among areas of lawn with fruit trees, herbs, rose bushes, and areas paved in stone, bounded by low dry stone walls, a dining area (next to the French window leading out from the kitchen) and a sitting area have been set up. A flight of stone steps leads up to the upper level. On a large loggia, in front of the French windows of the bedroom facing the portico, are the swimming pool with solarium, a gazebo complete with barbecue and brick wood oven, ideal for outdoor dining, and, for absolute relaxation, a further seating area with sofas and armchairs has been set up.

Swimming Pool

The rectangular swimming pool is set on a terrace situated on the level of the first floor and can be reached by a stone staircase located near the outdoor seating area on the ground floor as well as from the two bedrooms facing the portico, about 10 m from the pool. The pool, lined in mother of pearl with travertine border, has Roman steps and measures 6x12m with a constant depth of 1.50 m. The purification plant is chlorine and the pool is equipped with both internal and external lighting. The sunbathing area, paved in stone along the perimeter and lawn in the area provided with sunbeds, deckchairs and umbrellas, is bounded on one side by a double hedge and is equipped with solar shower. At the service of the pool is a toilet/dressing room placed on the basement floor. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday of October.

Set between the splendid provinces of Florence and Siena, is one of the most popular and well-known areas ofTuscany: Chianti, a hilly region consisting of wooded areas and land planted with vines and olive trees, dotted with numerous, perfectly preserved, medieval villages like Greve, Panzano, Gaiole, Radda and Castellina, rich in history and architecture and offering very high quality food and wine. This is the authentic area for the production of Chianti Classico DOCG, an historical wine marked by the unmistakable pink label with the symbol of the Black Rooster on gold background which, over the years, has continued to maintain its valuable characteristics. The property is located a just few kilometres from Greve (about 11 km), a picturesque borgo famous for its large central piazza, Il Mercatale, which since ancient times has hosted fairs, markets and cultural events, overlooked by historic buildings of particular artistic importance, such as the neo-Renaissance Town Hall and the Church of Santa Croce, with a 14th fresco depicting the Virgin and Child and a triptych by Bicci di Lorenzo, dated 1420. Strolling along the porticoes that surround it are craftman's shops, wine bars and restaurants offering local produce and culinary specialities. A few paces away from the central piazza is the Museum of Sacred Art and the Wine Museum which, in addition to the exhibition of a number of typical tools for the production of wine and a remarkable collection of corkscrews, offers a tasting of about 200 different wines, for each of which is given a computerized explanation. About 2 km away is the tiny borgo of Montefioralle, the birthplace of the navigator Amerigo Vespucci, a must if you want to appreciate the unique panorama seen from the hill. The area offers plenty of opportunity for recreation: nature and sports fans can go horse riding, cycling, hiking and play golf (at Impruneta, about 10 km away, is the prestigious Ugolino Golf Club with an 18-hole course). The area is also interesting for its numerous designer-label outlets, such as Reggello (Fashion Valley and The Mall - 27 km), Montevarchi (Prada - 34 km) or Barberino di Mugello (Barberino Designer Outlet - 57 km). The little village of Strada in Chianti, about 6 km away, has all services and shops on site to meet the needs and requirements of the guests. The property is within easy reach of the airports in the region, such as Florence (42 km) or Pisa (103 km). The nearest motorway exits are both 21 km away (exit Firenze Impruneta coming from the north, exit Incisa-Reggello coming from the south).
