Il Mulino della Rinchiosa is an 18th century water mill which has been transformed into a beautiful rustic home. It was completely restored only few years ago. The house is located in the heart of Tuscany, nestled in the Valdarno hills, just below the Pratomagno mountain range.
Il Mulino is composed of the main house who can accommodate at least six people comfortably. Outside the front door is a dining area under a pergola across which run a spectacular wisteria and a grape vine.
On the ground floor there is a cosy entrance hall/reception room with a fireplace and stairs down to the lower (mill) level, a central study with a large writing desk, and a larger living room with a sofa (which can be transformed into an additional double bed), a television and a music system. Off the central room are a utility room and guest toilet and stairs to the first floor.
On the first floor are three comfortable double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom with shower; the other two bedrooms share a bathroom with bath and shower. On the lower level the old mill, here the millstones and much of the original machinery - which has been completely restored and brought back to its original splendour. The mill forms the main dining room with a large table and a wood-burning stove. Adjacent to the mill is the kitchen - up to date appliances in an antique setting. Glazed double doors from the mill and a large glass door from the kitchen lead outside to the river frontage.
The cottage has two double bedrooms (one of which is a convertible twin) and a bathroom with shower; it can accommodate up to four people. All of the rooms enjoy glorious views of the river and the surrounding mountains. The owners gave much thought to the installation of the swimming pool. They wanted to respect the beautiful environment and so have built a pool which seems to form a natural part of the garden, using a salt water filtration system which requires only minimal use of chlorine.
