Description

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Le Macine is a farmhouse which the owners finished renovating with great skill in 2011. It dates to the beginning of the 20th century and its name derives from the fact that along the entrance drive are present two antique millstones of an old oil mill. The renovation was carried out using the classic materials with which farmhouses were built in the past: from Barberino stone for the walls to terracotta floors, open-face beams and the travertine used for the showers in the bathrooms. The house is situated between the Val d’Orcia, a well-known area for the presence of the crete senesi (Siennese clays) and centres of great interest such as Pienza and Montalcino, and the Maremma, known for its vast countryside extending to the Tyrrhenian Sea. The little town of Castel del Piano is just a few kilometres away. It enjoys a splendid panorama of the surrounding hills.Castel del Piano is part of the "Associations of Wine and Oil Town": a network of municipalities (11 in the province of Grosseto) for viticulture which together form a group of hotels, farms, restaurants, wine bars, wine bars and producing quality wine cellars. Great tourist attraction is the Palio of the four Districts (Borgo, Monumento, Poggio, Storte) of Castel del Piano that recalls the devotion to the SS. Madonna delle Grazie, valuable work on a gold background attributed to the fourteenth century Sienese painter Sano di Pietro. It is held every year on September 8; It is preceded by the "parade", which is the allegorical representation of the events that took place between 1330 and 1571 according to a legend rooted in tradition.
