Molino l'Oppino stands in a privileged position, beside a lovely stream, with an extraordinary landscape of vineyards to frame it: Montepulciano on one side, Montefollonico and Pienza on the other and behind, the picturesque Val di Chiana with the Apennines on the horizon. Built at the end of the 18th century as a consortium mill, it was transformed into a farmhouse dedicated to the cultivation of cereals, olive trees and pastures; the recent restoration intervention is the result of careful and skilful renovation that has bestowed on it charm and peculiarity in full respect of the local tradition. From the wooden ceilings, to the Tuscan terracotta floors, to the choice of the furnishings, everything has contributed to creating a welcoming domestic atmosphere. Molino l'Oppino has the typical features of a Tuscan farmhouse in stone and brick that the restoration works have respected and enhanced. The living area with large brick barrel vaults, the terracotta floor, the fireplace and the chestnut ceiling beams restore perfectly the warmth and hospitality characteristic of these buildings; the kitchen in cast iron and brass with large table invites you to convivial meals following tradition. The first floor with the pastel colours of the plaster and tapestries, the exposed walls and, again, the chestnut ceiling beams preserves the intimacy of the sleeping area.
