Perfect villa for relaxing as a group
Great rustic villa with lovely pool and an excellent host who was full of good local advice. Within reach of many of the tourist spots and local eateries were good. Great place to stay as a group with barbecue facilities on hand and farmhouse kitchen. Would stay there again but hopefully come for longer than a week.
Many thanks for your review. We're happy you had a great time and very much hope to see you again soon.... for longer next time!
Beautiful Tuscan retreat and perfect hosts
After a crack of dawn flight from Stansted, big mix up with the Hire Car company at Ancona airport, my partner and I were frazzled to say the least by the time we were on the road and heading for Monterchi, the delightful little village where Il Mulino is situated. But any stresses melted away as soon as we started driving down the cypress tree lined dusty road towards this perfect little house. And to be greeted by our hosts Paul & Sofia who live in the smaller house next door. They were wonderful and so friendly - big welcome basket in the kitchen and fridge full of essentials. And within an hour I was in the pool, it was was about 80 degrees, beautiful sunny day and just far too hard to resist! Over the next week or so my partner and I had a wonderful holiday - out sightseeing and driving around during the day (also recommend the Gucci outlet only an hour's drive away near Florence!!) and back to Italian feasts at Il Mulino, bbqs and freshly made pizzas (my partner is a chef). Once or twice Paul & Sofia came over and joined us too. they are a lovely couple with the best behaved children I have ever seen. The house itself is beautiful, airy and very traditional, dramatic views of sweeping hillside wherever you look. Wine lovers paradise of course - some beautiful wineries nearby and you can find some amazing wine deals in the local shops. All in all a wonderful week, full of happy memories, big red wines, fresh pizzas, banter with our lovely hosts, dips in the pool at dusk and days spent discovering hidden Umbria & Tuscany. I would say this place is perfect for couples or families - it truly is a little slice of heaven and I would always recommend. Fond memories indeed for us :)
Thanks Annabel!! You are always welcome back!! I'll make sure the local market has plenty of porchetta for you!!
A beautiful and peaceful location
I cannot praise Il Mulino enough. Paul and Sofia the owners have created a truly beautiful property in a peaceful area of Tuscany. The fenced off pool and enclosed extensive grounds are ideal for young children to play safely. My daughter (aged 4) loved feeding the chickens and collecting eggs for our breakfast every day along with fresh veg and fruit from the allotment. She had plenty of space to run around and play ball, and she thoroughly enjoyed the swings and slide. The property itself was immaculate and clean with very good amenities and Gina the housekeeper even taught us how to make pasta! Paul and Sofia made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you so much for a very special holiday. We hope to return soon!
Many thanks for your comments! We're so glad you enjoyed Il Mulino. We hope we'll see you again soon!!!
Beautiful Il Mulino
It couldn't have been better! This place is great. The owners were extremely helpful and nice to us. Traveling with kids (age 5 and 4) is not easy, but this property had it all. The pool, the warmth, the location, even the animals! My kids enjoyed feeding them every day! We will definitely go back.
Thanks so much for your kind comments! It was a pleasure meeting you and we hope to see you again!
Il Mulino really is as good as it looks and sounds on the website. It is clean, well furnished and in beautiful surroundings. To collect eggs daily, scratch the pigs, stroke the sheep and pick fresh veg was, for us, idyllic. The pool is immaculate and safe for our 3 year old. The owners were there if you needed them but there was complete privacy if you wanted. They were very welcoming, very helpful and very nice. We will definitely return.
You must cycle along the Tiber, visit Mr Ghignoni's ice cream parlour and eat at the Castello di Sorci.
Hi! I hope you're all well! Thanks for your review. It's always nice for us to hear feedback from our guests. Hope it's not too long before we see you again! All the best. Paul
Simply the best Italian Holiday destination
We have just returned for our third visit to the wonderful Il Mulino and I have no doubt we will be back again soon . This wonderful home is immaculate and the attention to detail from the owners make it a reallly special place to relax and enjoy the beatiful surrounding . The grouds , garden and pool are all beautifully maintained and provide great , safe play areas for a young family .
There are plenty of bars , resturants and gelaterias within easy reach and the all the local towns are worth a visit for shopping , sightseeing , eating and drinking . The owners are really helpful in making recommendations and sharing the secrets that Tuscany has to offer .
Thanks very much for your kind words - we look forward to seeing you for a fourth visit!!!
Monterchi is brilliantly placed for exploring both Tuscany and Umbria. An easy drive to Prada and other famous outlets, as well as the newly opened outlet village in Tuscany. Nearby Arezzo offers easy connections to Florence, Rome, Siena, Pisa, Cortona. Other nearby places of interest include Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, San Gimignano, Sansepolcro, Citta di Castello, Urbino. There is always somewhere new to visit, and Monterchi itself offers a great deal of history and famous art. Monterchi has a great feel of the real Italy, and the local villagers go out of their way to make you welcome. For art lovers, Monterchi is home to the famous 'Madonna del Parto' by Piero della Francesca. Monterchi has a great choice of reasonably priced restaurants.
