About Francesca and Gloria
Gloria and Francesca: our life styles and experiences are very different, and thanks to this 'mixed blessing' at beginning of the nineties with our husbands we decided to embark on our incredible adventure that has brought new life to our Mulino di Rimaggio.
Passionately in love with Tuscany, enthusiastic about its history and territory and ready to share our knowledge with you so you too can have your own special memories of our mill and its surroundings.
Francesca and Gloria purchased this villa in 1990
Why Francesca and Gloria chose Cavriglia
We were wandering in the area when we saw an abandoned building nestling in a little valley next to a small uncontaminated stream....we decided to have a closer look ..... and we felt in love with it, luckily it was on sale !
What makes this villa unique
Mulino di Rimaggio is in a rural area, away from the most crowded and visited towns of the Chianti area, but not too far to visit when we like.
It is ideal for relaxing or enjoy the company of our friends. The phone doesn't ring, there isn't any computer to check the mail, any Pay TV, we can finally read the book that we bought some time ago, pet our flowers, cook or simply sit, close the eyes and listen to sounds of nature.
Guestbook comments from the owner
When you roll the dice from thousands of miles away on a rental property
rarely are you as pleasantly surprised as my wife and I were with our
experience at Mulino Di Rimaggio. The correspondence with Francesca prior
to the visit was courteous and professional. Upon arrival, the property was
actually more beautiful than displayed on the website. All of the amenities
within our unit (the Hayloft) and on the property are 1st class and well worth
the rental price. What made our trip truly special was that we felt like friends
versus rental customers. I would strongly recommend Mulino and we look
forward to coming back as soon as we can!
