                    We stayed at the Mullino of the winds “at the top of the world” in June and July, 2013. The location of this stunning restored Tuscan farmhouse is unmatchable—at the very top of the hill town of Cortona, just outside the city walls, and minutes to the main gate along an enchanting level gravel driveway. The views from the house, garden and pool are the best in Tuscany—extending panoramically from Lago Trasemino all the way to Montepluciano and Sienna in the distance. On a clear day Monte Amiata is framed by the entire Val di Chianna! Cortona’s church bells announce every morning, and the sunsets are incredible from every room in the house. The house is spacious and perfectly laid out. It can easily and comfortably accommodate three couples. A large living room with fireplace extends into a vast open dining room. The kitchen has a substantial pantry at the back and a generous preparation area at the front. There are three upstairs bedrooms; one with ensuite and two with a shared bathroom. All rooms have superb windows looking out over the endless views. The furnishings are tasteful antiques and the house feels like a Tuscan dream. The perfect pool, BBQ and outdoor pizza oven complete the compliment of amenities. Beppe, Nicoleta and Luigi are consummate hosts and make you feel like a member of their family. There is simply no better place to stay in Cortona, let alone Tuscany!

                    We visited Mulino a Vento in late April of 2013. It was truly a dream come true. From the charming (well equipped) farmhouse with the spectacular views from every room to the the sparkling pool on the hill, it is a magical place. The house is perfectly located on the hillside of Cortona with privacy from neighbors and still walking distance to town. Nicoletta, Luigi and Peppi are warm, welcoming and very accommodating, providing information about local restaurants and suggestions for sightseeing excursions. Our only regret is that we did not stay two weeks instead of one. We hope to plan a return visit soon.

                    Fabulous from the beginning. Upon our arrival we were met by Beppe, Nicoletta and Luigi who were all so charming and helpful. Our short drive up the hill led us to this amazingly beautiful and comfortable Villa. The updating was wonderful, fitting all of todays modern conviences and keeping the original character of the villa in tact. All rooms were large and boasting great views. Bathrooms were modern and clean. The villa was large enough for the six of us to spread out and enjoy the indoors as well as the pool and large lawn with a fabulous view of Cortona and the valley. Cortona was a short walk away with wonderful restaurants and shopping. We will definetly return for another visit.

                    What a wonderful surprise! The villa is in perfect condition, the bedrooms are roomy and elegant, updated modern bathrooms, cozy living room, large dining room and the views are not to be believed! The grounds are well maintained and so lovely. The house has a fantastic view but the view from the pool is even better. Wonderful BBQ and pizza oven with all the tools needed. Just a short walk to the main square of quaint Cortona. Our hosts, Beppe, Nicoletta & Luigi were so helpful and accommodating - dinner reservations, wine tour reservations, where to find the best gelato in town, etc. Don't hesitate to book this amazing property. You won't be disappointed!

                    We love Cortona. Melanie first visited in 2002 while working with Frances Mayes on her "Under the Tuscan Sun" furniture collection for Drexel Heritage. This was our 5th trip for business and pleasure, having stayed in a different place each time. Mulinova Avento is the perfect place, and we will definitely stay here again. The house is wonderful, open public rooms and spacious bedrooms with well appointed baths. The view is stunning and the pool sublimely private! Location can not be better - a lovely stroll into Town, with Roman Road hiking trails going past the driveway. The trails are spectacular with huge views, and lead to Town or up to and around the old fortress walls holding up Casa Santa Margherita at the high point of Cortona, a wonderful hike through pines and open fields. Best of all are the Owners Giuseppe, his wife Nicoletta and son Luigi Torriti. You will not find nicer, more genuine hosts.

                    We are home from our wonderful trip to Italy and our stay at Mulino a Vento was the highlight of this trip. The pictures do not do the beauty of this home enough justice. The views from the house are spectacular. The house itself was perfect for three couples traveling together. We loved sitting out in the front overlooking the valley and drinking coffee in the morning and sipping wine by the beautiful pool in the evenings. The house is very conveniently located to town, we walked into town each day where you can find about everything you need from a small grocery store, wine shops, shopping, pharmacy and many, many dining choices. The house is stocked with everything you could need including very comfortable beds. We cooked a feast one night on the outdoor grill. What made this the most memorable was the hospitality of our host, Nicoletta, Giuseppe, and Luigi, including some outstanding recommendations for dinners on top our many questions! You made us feel as if we were family. We look forward to coming back to stay with you in the future! Thank you making our trip to Cortona so special.

                    We had the pleasure of staying in this magnificent villa with 2 other couples. This was our 4th visit to Cortona. On each occasion we have stayed in a different villa in and around Cortona. In every respect, Il Mulino exceeded our expectations. The view is unsurpassed, the interior renovations of this villa are of the highest quality, the outdoor living space is spectacular, and, most importantly, the genuine warmth & hospitality of its owners made this vacation incredibly special to us. When we return to Cortona, there will be no need to look any further, as we have found our home away from home in Tuscany. Thank you, G, N & L....we will see you soon C & S.

                    Our multi- generational family of 7 (my elderly parents, children 6,8,9, myself, and my husband) stayed at this property in mid April 2012.The beauty and comfort of this property is beyond exceptional. It is impeccably decorated, yet welcoming and practical. The house and it's ground is a perfect marriage of timeless tradition, respect for nature's beauty and modern convenience (climate control, washer and dryer, wireless internet). The location is both private yet convenient. It is on top of a private hill from which you walk right out to Cortona. Though the approach to the house is difficult with the big van that we drove, Mr. Torriti was able to help drive the van up the hill for us. It is more of a problem because of the size of the van and the fact that we are mid westerners unused to hills. The view from the house is breathtaking. The owner's kindness to our family is for me a manifestation of Grace of God. To mention mundane facts such as that my children loved playing in the yard, my mother loved cooking in the kitchen, and I was so relieved to be able to finally dry our laundry seems almost irreverent, and irrelevant. To do justice to describe our stay, I would have to write my own version of The Enchanted April. I could only say that the owners of the property, Mr. and Mrs. Torriti showed us that indeed "La vita è bella". While tempted to use nothing but superlatives in describing "Mulino a Vento", one feels that such loudness of language is almost insulting to the tranquility of this gently enchanting haven. While we also enjoyed our stay at other fantastic rentals, and 5 star villas/hotels (ie St. Regis at Florence), our stay at "Mulino a Vento" was the best part of our trip.
