Property description

The Mulino di Rimaggio is a XVIII C. water mill transformed in 3 elegant apartments, each one with its own character and charm. After a meticulous restoration the Mill has been awarded the status of protected historical building. The names of the 3 units evoke the old use or setting of their rooms: HAY LOFT, MILL STONES, STREAM.

The surrounding perfumed garden attracts many species of butterflies, bees and other insects as well as frogs and toads that are the joy of the children in the summer time.
The wide infinity swimming pool occupies the space of the mill pond and it is fed by a water fall of spring water. Parasol and sun beds offer comfort to the guests.

The Mill nestles in a rural well preserved area on the Valdarno slopes of the Chianti Hills. Ideally located in the centre of the Tuscan Golden Triangle of the three world wide famous art cities Firenze, Arezzo and Siena that can be reached in less than an hour, by car or train. Perfect location for daily excursions in Tuscany for wine/food tasting and art tours. Outlets of the most famous fashion designers are 20 minutes far.

The front side of the house faces the swimming pool, the garden area and the beautiful hill of Montegonzi that offers breathtaking sunsets.
On the East side the view opens on the valley and the Pratomagno on the Appennines Mountains.
On the back side a bubbling stream lined by tall walnuts, poplars and a wild thick woods populated by birds, squirrels, woodpeckers assure tranquillity and relaxing atmosphere.
The little village of Montegonzi overlooking the property has grocery and a good trattoria.
Cavriglia 3km far has shops and facilities for all needs; more shops and stores in Montevarchi, 8 km far.

In the 3 apartments the modern comfort mixes with the warmth of the old family furniture and quality materials of the architecture. Each one has its own private open space with parasol , dining table and sun chairs.

HAY LOFT: 2 bedrooms- 2 bathrooms -This apartment occupies the part of the building that was used to store the hay and other fodders for the animals for the winter time.

On the upper floor a stunning double bedded room with brickworks on 3 sides with adjacent bathroom with shower cabin.

MILL STONES: 3 bedrooms - 2 bathrooms - It is the central apartment, where once the mill stones operated. On 3 levels connected by easy staircases.

This is a place for relax and easy life, out of the noise of the modern time; ideal for visitors who need to break with the ordinaire life routine for a while. No internet or pay TV. A perfect location to discover and enjoy the sounds and the colours of nature: birds songs, the wind through the woods and the olive grove, the bells of the Montegonzi church, fiery sunsets over the hills, the farmers' chatting in the vineyards.....

The Montevarchi Thursday open market will give you the flavour of the ordinaire local daily life and a good occasion to buy fresh organic food directly from the farmers. Brolio, Volpaia, Badia di Coltibuono or Montalcino offer daily wine tasting.
The slow pace of the Chianti towns will be an alternative for shorter excursions when you want to spend more time at home, by the pool.
We love to spend some time with our guests, sometimes cooking togheter or offering you tours of Florence or just chatting of local life by the pool.
We'll be very happy to help you planning your time at the Mill with information on trains schedules, museums reservations, local festivals and events.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Gloria and Francesca: our life styles and experiences are very different, and thanks to this 'mixed blessing' at beginning of the nineties with our husbands we decided to embark on our incredible adventure that has brought new life to our Mulino di Rimaggio. Passionately in love with Tuscany, enthusiastic about its history and territory and ready to share our knowledge with you so you too can have your own special memories of our mill and its surroundings.

Why the Owner Chose Cavriglia:
We were wandering in the area when we saw an abandoned building nestling in a little valley next to a small uncontaminated stream....we decided to have a closer look ..... and we felt in love with it, luckily it was on sale !

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Mulino di Rimaggio is in a rural area, away from the most crowded and visited towns of the Chianti area, but not too far to visit when we like. It is ideal for relaxing or enjoy the company of our friends. The phone doesn't ring, there isn't any computer to check the mail, any Pay TV, we can finally read the book that we bought some time ago, pet our flowers, cook or simply sit, close the eyes and listen to sounds of nature.
