Perfect Tuscany Villa

  • 5 of 5
First, the owner Nadia is the sweetest most welcoming person one could hope to meet upon arrival, and she's always ready to give tips about local food, activities, or logistics when asked. The property itself is stunning with great mill-like character amidst the surrounding olive orchards. It's also easy to find and the location is perfect for day trips into the surrounding medieval hill-top towns, as well as a short train or drive away from Florence.

The Perfect Italian "Home" Base

The Perfect Italian "Home" Base
  • 5 of 5
Perfectly located in Tuscany, this charming villa was the perfect home base for our Italian holiday. The villa is perfectly situated for daily excursions to all that the Tuscan-Umbrian area has to offer - including Florence, Cortona, Multipuciano and Sienna. Located just 10 minutes from Arezzo, yet tucked away into the beautiful countryside, this location allowed us to be close enough to amenities without having to sacrifice all that this picturesque area has to offer.

The property itself is all that you hope it will be. We spent or mornings on the outdoor patio overlooking the olive trees and finished our days of exploring where we started it - over a glass of wine. The kitchen is fully-equipped and your host Nadia even welcomes you with a bottle of olive oil pressed from the property's own trees. That came in handy while we enjoyed the wine, meats and cheese of the area each evening while relaxing from our day.

Nadia and her family are so very charming and accommodating. They helped us regularly as we sought help with our daily planning. One of the highlights of our trip was visiting her nephew's organic winery for a private tour. We would like to return again to take advantage of the cooking classes that they offer there as well.

While this is a 4-bedroom villa, the fourth bedroom is more suited for children - as it is adjacent to one of the main bedrooms, but otherwise it was the perfect accommodations for two couples and one college-age child. The bedrooms are situated in the lower level which made for cool and comfortable nights for sleeping. Both bedrooms have private outdoor sitting areas…adding to the romance of the setting.

We couldn't be happier with our stay, and would definitely return if we visited this area again.

Wonderful View and Warmest Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our week at Mulinmaria one thousand percent!! We were located in the countryside amongst the olive groves, but yet conveniently located nearby to Arezzo's stores and restaurants. We were also within driving and/or train distance to Pisa, Bologna, Siena, Firenze (Florence), Cortona, Venezia (Venice), and more. What a delight it was to see all of Italy's historical towns and countryside during the ride. But our favorite part was enjoying a glass of vine on our patio, looking down over the olive trees and vineyards onto the valley and distant hills. If you are there with your wine during a beautiful sunset, you will know why we chose Mulinmaria and will again. And, of course, the warm hospitality that we received was an added bonus.

Perfect choice for authentic Tuscan vacation

  • 5 of 5
I gave it 5 stars, but would give it more if I could. The photos associated with this house make it look appealing, yet it's even better in person. A great kitchen for cooking, comfortable beds, peaceful setting, and the best terrace ever. We enjoyed the terrace for morning breakfasts - and for evening dinners and wine under the moonlight.The location near Arezzo makes it a perfect base for day trips to the many inviting hill towns in Tuscany, along with grabbing a train from the Arezzo station to Florence or even Rome. The house owners also arranged for us to enjoy a wonderful private tour and tasting at a nearby family-operated winery. It was extraordinary! Renting this house gave us 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (small, but serviceable), a lot of privacy, covered car parking, and a perfect taste of Tuscany. The WiFi is good and there are bookshelves full of maps and travel books. And it's not just the rooms and the property, but the gracious hospitality of the owners is what truly makes this a perfect choice. Nadia, her daughter Arianna, and the entire family were so helpful and welcoming that Mulinmaria became more than a house for us ... it was a home. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. If you can book this place for an upcoming visit to Tuscany, don't hesitate! We will definitely be back.

a wonderful stay in a beautiful peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5
We emailed many properties in this area for a last minute booking and the only one that dealt with the enquiry promptly and efficiently was Arianna at Mulino Maria. As property renters ourselves, we were suitably impressed.

She went out of her way to ensure the property was ready for us when we booked at the last minute. Although staying in the winter, the place was always cosy and warm and Arianna had plenty of firewood cut for us to have a fire on their wonderful inglenook fireplace in the kitchen.

The property has been beautifully restored with great attention to detail and respect for the history of the mill. We even had a milling stone as a feature in the bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped and we prepared most of our evening meals at the mill.

There is plenty to do and see in the area and the information pack was very useful.

We would not hesitate in recommending this place to anyone wanting a quiet stay in the area and we will certainly be back one day to enjoy this wonderful peaceful place.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5
Nadia's country house is a beautifully restored mill outside of Arezzo on a beautiful hillside. The house is situated alongside the small stream that formerly fed the mill and Nadia's olive groves surround the entire property. The setting is incredibly lovely.

My boyfriend and I visited in mid January, I can only imagine how amazing the property is in the warmer months. We nevertheless had a fantastic time in the rain! The fireplace is huge and keeps the (huge) kitchen quite warm.

We can't wait to come back summer or winter.

The house is located south of Arezzo in a peaceful position, ideal for taking walks through the natural surroundings. Arezzo, the setting for Roberto Benigni's 'Life is Beautiful,' is a city characterized by a beautiful array of architectural styles, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheatre and the Medici Fortress; there's an international Equestrian Centre.The first weekend of each month features a popular antique fair, while annually the town hosts a festival called 'Joust of the Saracens,' where all of the citizens dress in medieval attire. It is also well situated to day trips throughout Tuscany, including nearby Cortona (20km), Assisi, Val d'Orcia, Chianti, Perugia and Lake Trasimeno, as well as Florence and Siena.
