Description

Villa Le Macine, following a meticulous restoration work, consists of a central building and two barns
(“Il Rosmarino” and “Il Leccio”) surrounded by lush and colorful vegetation, filled with fragrances, and
sounds that make it a truly unique place to connect with nature.
The rustling of leaves blends with the sound of the Pesa River like a lullaby that soothes and refreshes.
On the ground floor of the Villa, a spacious living room leads to a grand dining room with a fireplace
and a bread oven (made even more extraordinary by the presence of a perfectly preserved kitchen
dating back to IV century A.D., twin to that found in the Monumental Kitchen of Badia a Passignano),
followed by a modern kitchen restored and equipped with all modern conveniences, a bathroom with
laundry facilities, and finally the “Antique Room” suite with a large and luxurious private bathroom
with travertine shower.
On the first floor, a bright living room dominates the scene with its central truss and a fireplace that
makes the atmosphere even more special.

From here, you have access to the “I Cipressi” and “Il Susino” suites, both with private bathrooms and
travertine showers.
The “I Cipressi” suite also features a freestanding bathtub with a panoramic view of the Villa’s garden.
Finally, the “Le Macine” suite, located on the garden floor with direct access to an exclusive patio, has
been entirely carved out of the ancient mill’s manger used as a horse rest stop and for grain storage, still visible in the suite’s private bathroom.
What makes this room even more special is its proximity to the mill room where the ancient millstones,
from which it takes its name, are still present.
The property is composed by two annexes: one is located on the left side of the main building, the
Rosemary Suite (the biggest annex) extends over two levels: on the ground floor there is a double
bedroom with a bathroom and access to a front patio and a lateral loggia used as a dining area, while on
the upper floor, there is a loft with two single beds overlooking the villa’s pool.
“Il Leccio”, formerly an ancient sawmill (the small annex), is located opposite the main body of the villa
and overlooks the park directly through a paved patio.
The dependence comprises a living room with a fireplace, a kitchen with a historical marble sink, and a
double bedroom with an open shower.
