Description of object

Tired of city life, in 1996 we decided to live in the hearth of Crete Senesi. Immediately we have fallen in love with Molinello, with its Etruscan origins (and the nearby tumulus), its medieval mill (whose ruins are still visible nowadays), its age-old oak trees, and with the peacefullness and quietness that surround it. We have decided to share all this with our guests.
At guests’ disposal 5 apartments and one double bedroom with private bathroom, pool, wine tasting courses and a winery where to taste a glass of good wine.


Location of object

Welcome to the world’s most photographed panorama! There is indeed no piece of this landscape left that has not already become a snapshot. A wide sea of clay spreads out over the countryside Southeast of Siena: one evocative, soft hill follows the other, the few forests leave space to the endless stretches of wheat fields and grassland, able to change their colours with the succession of the seasons.
The Crete Senesi are indeed a quite different world. Someone has defined them as “moonscape”, but only because he hasn’t seen them in spring, when the explosion of nature makes the fields become green waves, caressed by the wind, or in autumn, when the farmers’ ploughs bring the clay back to the surface, with its beautiful violet shimmer.
The Crete are, without doubt, a land of agriculture. In the first place a land of wheat and land of the shepherds. Not by chance it’s famous for its sheep’s milk cheese, unique like the unmistakable flavour of the wild herbs that give their aroma to the sheep’s milk. Land of olive groves that produce the fine “Terre di Siena” oil with guarantee of origin (Dop). And right here in the area of the Crete one of the rarest and finest white truffles of Italy can be found.
In this clayey region with its endless horizons we do not find a lot of stone. Almost everything is made of bricks and therefore made of clay: the beautiful farmhouses that stay isolated on the top of a hill, lined by high cypress trees; the magnificent monuments that mark the territory like cardinal points, from the Abbey of Monte Oliveto (spiritual headquarter of the Crete Senesi, with a marvellous cloister with 16th century frescoes by Sodoma and Signorelli) to the fortified medieval storehouse for wheat Grancia di Cuna, from the castle of San Giovanni d’Asso to the city walls of Buonconvento. Only around Rapolano, land of the hot springs and the travertine, stone is a protagonist. Stone and bricks meet harmoniously in Asciano, chief city of this territory centuries ago, where we can admire side by side the Sienese city walls of the 14th century, the Romanesque architecture of the Basilica of Sant’Agata and the artistic treasures of Palazzo Corboli, a glorious medieval city palace that today houses a rich museum.



Town: Italy, crete senesi, asciano

Magnificent roads set out from Asciano: the historic Lauretana towards Siena, Via di Rapolano and the splendid dirt road of Monte Monte Sante Marie .

It is also the ideal base for a visit to the Abbey of Monteoliveto Maggiore (14th century), the most important Sienese monastery complex, founded by Bernardo Tolomei . In a magnificent position amid woodland and erosion furrows it features notable early renaissance frescoes by Luca Signorelli e Sodoma .

A brief but richly rewarding visit to the centre of Asciano begins in front of the Sant’Agata (11th century, modified in the 16th, 17th and 19th centuries) where you will find a Virgin with Child by Signorelli andSodoma’s PietÓ . The Museum of Sacred Art is near the church and houses a collection of 14th and 15th century worksCorso Matteotti passes through the heart of the little town and is overlooked by the Gothic church of San Bernardino (which houses the Etruscan Museum) and the late Gothic church of Sant’Agostino .The 13th century church of San Francesco is very beautiful for the essentialness of its architecture. The visit ends in Piazza del Grano with its fine travertine fountain (15th century) by Paolo Ghini and the fašade of del PodestÓ. A must for art enthusiasts is the museum with works by Amos Cassioli, an important 19th century Sienese artist.
