We stayed here as a base for our four days in Tuscany. The hotel was a little tricky to find, but once you find the road markers to get back, it is easy. However, it is further from Siena and the other hill towns than we anticipated.
The hotel, itself, however is clean, spacious, has beautiful grounds and GREAT staff. Sandro at the front desk made great recommendations for towns to visit, restaurants and even running trails for my husband. The pool is peaceful and a great bonus.
The restaurant however, was hit or miss. We ate there two nights and the first night was great! Ravioli with truffle, veal, and pasta with meat.
The second night however, I got a delicious vegetable dish but my husband's meat was fatty and inedible. The chef and staff at the restaurant was great. The chef came out to say hello and talk and even gave us a late night wine to try.
Overall, our stay here was great and would stay here again if we ust wanted to see the wineries in Chianti, and not the nearby hill towns.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A 14th century mill, which produced flour for almost 5 centuries for the surrounding area. The water necessary to move the mill wheels came from the nearby spring which still exists and can be reached on foot along an old track. In 1650 the mill was bought by a wealthy women- MonnaGinevra from Gaiole in Chianti and our restaurant is named after her today. The mill operated until the end of the 1700 after which it was abandoned. The present owners Daniele and Elisa were fascinated by its position with magical sounds and colours of nature. Even though, the remains of walls were entirely covered by shrubbery, ticket and trees, some of them as high of 5m., this young couple were determined to revive the mill. The recnstruction works starter in 2001. All original materials such as stones or beams have been reused; together with ceramic cotta forged from iron mix as well as the detail given to comfort and functionality at the same time to create a real harmony. Today this Old Mill is an excellent Hotel which offers its guests 14 comfortable rooms, the taste of a typical local kitchen, the pleasure to swim in two panoramic pools and the relaxation of our Health Centre. ... more less
