Albergo le Macinaie
This family-managed hotel is located on Monte Amiata (at 1400 M a.s.l.) which was sacred to the Etruscans.
It lies in a beautiful clearing surrounded by Italy's largest beech forest, with a breathtaking view to the peak of the unknown Tuscan Volcano.
Since 1972 Le Macinaie Hotel has been in an old chestnut mill, completely refurbished in 1999. Today it features 17 comfortable and charming rooms including a free Wi-Fi, an internet corner and outdoor parking.
You can enjoy our relaxing area which includes sauna, whirlpool and tanning booth or our kinder garden dedicated to the children.
The hotel is recommended for activity breaks: hiking, biking, motorbiking, quad, downhill, orienteering or gourmet tours which Enrico and Francesco are able to suggest, customise and book.
In the neighbourhood you can also find motorbike, bicycle and quad rental. In the evening or for lunch our restaurant, where chefs Giorgio and Claudia prepare local, handmade and Tuscan dishes, is famous for its mushroom soup and grilled edible boletus cap. In the morning our rich buffet breakfast is welcoming so you will be ready for a new and unforgettable travel experience.
