Il Vecchio Mulino is a recently restored former mill just outside the ancient Etruscan town of Volterra in central Tuscany. The villa is located at the end of a long drive in a secluded rural valley providing the ultimate get away location. The property has been restored to a high standard and incorporates many original features of the building with a modern edge. The house is situated in a large, very private, garden surrounded by ancient woodland. The huge swimming pool is set on a paved terrace and is split into three pools, a shallow child’s pool, a lane for swimming lengths and the main pool area. There are furnished stone terraces around the house and a barbecue and dining area for alfresco dining. Volterra is located in the heart of Tuscany and provides the perfect base to explore the region. The sea is in easy reach at Cecina (35km) and San Gimignano (20km), Florence (50km), Pisa (37km) and Siena are all nearby.
All modern conveniences are available including washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, microwave, I-pod speakers.
The large landscaped garden has several seating areas and terraces. There is a small stream running through the edge of the garden, (this is fenced off to make it safe for children). The pool and garden are regularly maintained during the week.

...with original features in a secluded location yet only a 5 minutes drive into Volterra. The pool was extremely inviting on the hot days and the local area is very rich with history. The villa itself was very clean and tidy, I will definitely be returning next year!
Thanks again, it made our holiday!
