Villa for rent from £ 363/day in MontalcinoName/Address: Villa Arrighi
The origins of the mill are uncertain but it was probably in operation during the same period that the Abbey di Sant'Antimo was built and probably provided flour to the abbey monks.
The house is set on many levels as is typical for a traditional mill.
The entrance is down a short flight of stone steps through a paved, furnished terrace directly into the spacious open plan living/dining room with fireplace and satellite TV.
Columns divide the living room from the dining area.
A note of interest is a glass inset in the living room floor that overlooks the stream below.
Next to the fireplace is a door that leads up two steps into the spacious, modern kitchen that is fully equipped with gas range, electric oven and dishwasher.
To the left of the kitchen is a door opening outside onto a paved, covered terrace furnished with barbecue, table and chairs.
It is ideal for enjoying meals al fresco.
A door on the right of the kitchen opens into a large pantry where the fridge and freezer are located.
And a door in the pantry opens onto the hallway.
From the hall, a door leads you into a spacious bathroom with shower.
A second door opens into a large utilities room with washbasin and washing machine.
This is where the garden furniture is also stored during the winter.
From the dining room, a beautiful brick staircase leads to the second floor and opens directly into a second living room with a fireplace.
On one end of the living room is the door to a double bedroom, with ensuite bathroom and shower.
Another door on the opposite side of the living room opens into a spacious bathroom with toilet, washbasin, and shower.
A third door leads down to a double bedroom.
A second set of stairs leads up to a third floor landing.
Two doors, opposite each other on the landing, open into a double bedroom and into a twin bedded room with beds that can be united to turn it into a double bed.
There is a baby cot available to be put in one of these bedrooms.
The mill reflects typical Tuscan architectural styles with wood beamed ceilings, cotto floors and an alternation between white washed walls and stone.
The mill is reached by a track that leads through a gate opening onto the parking area.
From there, there is a walkway leading to the house.
The property is partially fenced off to ensure privacy and has olive groves, fruit trees and woodlands.
The private 7 x 10 m swimming pool is the only external modern feature and is set into the original mill course in gardens above the property.
There are lawns surrounding the pool that can be accessed from one of the second floor bedrooms.
To the left of the kitchen is a paved, covered terrace furnished with barbecue, table and chairs.
