"A fantastic apartment right in the center of Cortona. We cooked a few meals (butcher and market were close by) but the Cortona restaurants were irresistible. We walked to most attractions in Cortona directly from the apartment - a little steep at times but an interim rest took care of that :-) During the week the overnight parking next to the wall outside Porta Colonia was no problem. The local contact, Marta, was most helpful. We recommend this apartment to anyone seeking a fantastic stay in Cortona and vicinity."

"Nous sommes un groupe de 8 adultes qui avons passé un séjour mémorable d’une semaine à la Casale 36 en septembre dernier (2014). Il est difficile de trouver les mots justes pour exprimer à quel point Casale 36 est parfaite.
C’est en faisant la rencontre de Grazia et son frère Gino (ainsi que leur maman) que l’on comprend pourquoi la Casale 36 est si spéciale - ils ont rénové cette demeure familiale en y mettant coeur et âme. Tout est absolument parfait - de bon goût, rénovée et entretenue avec soins.
Grazia et Gino sont des hôtes attentionnés et vont s’assurer que leurs invités ne manquent de rien. Bref, quoi de mieux que de commencer un séjour par un accueil chaleureux accompagné d’un buffet aux saveurs locales ou encore, terminer la semaine avec une soirée pizza où Gino se transforme en « pizzaiolo » et, avec Gracia, préparent sous vos yeux de délicieuses pizzas au four à bois.
Bref, même si la route pour se rendre à Casale 36 est quelque peu sinueuse (mais avec des vues spectaculaires), un séjour à Casale 36 est tout simplement magique!
Un gros MERCI, de notre famille à la vôtre."

"Two couples over 55 had a tremendous, relaxing, star-struck month staying at this villa just outside the ancient walls of Cortona. The villa itself is roomy, impeccably clean, and very comfortable for eating, sleeping, and relaxing as a couple or as a group. The front yard and pool area are manicured and magical for just 'chilling' -- sitting out there each night gazing at the stars above and the twinkling lights of the villages in the valley below and in the distance (e.g. Montepulciano) was something we looked forward to after 'cena' (dinner). Our walking distance into town was close enough to get our espresso in the a.m., shopping (great), and wonderful restaurants, but far enough that we had our own parking spot at the villa for use in visiting other villages on a daily basis. The walk into Cortona and maneuvering the steep Cortona streets was our exercise each day which helped us justify the volume of pasta, salamis, and wine we consumed !! You will feel like you hit the jackpot if you stay at Mulino A Vento. The additional treat is that you get to know the owners: Beppe, Nicoletta and their son Luigi who live just 3 minutes walk down the driveway toward the village. They were very welcoming and gave us great ideas to see the area and things to do that made our stay unique. If you stay here, be sure to attend the every-Thursday-night wine tasting and dinner sponsored by Molesini's in the main piazza..... a really fun night and a different host-restaurant each week. We also benefited from a walking tour of Cortona a few days after arriving (wear comfy support shoes!), and also a cooking class --- both of which Nicoletta can help you reserve. I could go on but you get the idea: stay @ Mulino A Vento !!"

A Wonderful House near Cortona, Arezzo Province, Tuscany, Italy
"'We so enjoyed our two-week stay at Casa del Mulino. We had a wonderful time wherever we went but especially liked Cortona and Casa del Mulino. The weather was beautiful most days (in October) so we were able to eat most meals on the veranda; it only turned chilly on the last two days but not chilly enough to use the heat. We rented bikes from a wonderful guy in Castiglion Fiorentino who told us about many trails (Sentiero della Bonifica) and even took us for a beautiful ride through Vale di Chio to Castello Montecchio. The house was everything that the owers said it would be, and it was a large part of why we had such a nice vacation as we always had a wonderful place to come back to. (Jane E., USA Autumn)"
