What an incredible stay! The property is gorgeous and secluded. And our hosts were amazing. They showed us around town, the train and suggested the most delicious local restaurant. Not only that, Josie provided wine, bread, tomatoes, cheese and other items in our fridge when we arrived. Sitting on the back deck, looking out over the fountain while snacking was such a treat. We loved it here and recommend it highly!!
We stayed here for 10 nights in June and had the most wonderful experience. The watermill is a home from home, with every facility that you require from a self catering holiday and more. The owners have thought of absolutely everything to ensure that your stay there is perfect.
Maria Jose and Leo are absolutely wonderful hosts. We have already booked again for next year and cannot wait to return
We wanted to stay in Tuscany and be near Florence for our honeymoon, and this was flat-out wonderful. The apartment is beautiful and spacious, which are essential when you plan to spend an extended amount of time on vacation (we stayed there 10 nights). We planned to cook often, and the fact there is a garden on the grounds was a bonus. Access to the garden is just one of the many generous perks extended to us by Josie and Lio, who were hosts beyond compare. They picked us up in Rufina when we arrived, recommended restaurants when we asked, dropped us at the train station (in the next town over!), when we were going to depart, and even offered to let us use their car! We speak only a few words of Italian, and having such wonderful hosts who you feel like you can turn to when you're in a jam adds a layer of comfort you can't put a price on. When we examined the listing, we assumed that the property couldn't possibly match the beauty of the photos, but in fact, it's every bit as good as advertised. We give this our highest recommendation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had myself, my 8 year old son and another couple. The apartment was well stocked and spacious (especially that beautiful bathroom). We stayed a week with a mix of eating out and staying in. Our hosts were wonderful, providing us a welcoming array of food, plus providing advice and occasional rides to the train station without being in the way at all. Highly recommend this.
There is so much to tell about this amazing place! Starting with the hosts who are just the nicest people ever! They are epitome of Tuscan friendliness. Maria Jose and Leo who fully stocked our apartment with groceries, gave us a tour of Rufina, answered our endless questions about trains and schedules with so much patience, lent us their tennis rackets, and even helped us out with my husbands minor medical emergency! And the apartment... It's perfect! It's clean, neat, cozy, beautifully decorated, and so comfortable! And the mill, the grounds are large and beautiful, they have a big amazing pool, a smaller zen/jet pool right off the bedroom, an adorable little vegetable garden where we got to choose fresh vegetables and herbs from, and the rest you will have to see for yourself!! But we highly recommend this place and would undoubtedly stay there again when we're back in Italy!!
We had a fantastic two weeks in this beautiful place. We recommend it without hesitation and we will book it again if we return to Tuscany.
Lio and Maria made us very welcome and were wonderful hosts. They have created a perfect place to have a relaxing holiday with your own privacy.The ground floor apartment is extremely comfortable and all fitted out with everything you need. You even have a choice of an expresso or filter coffee machine.
We should point out that the apartment is much larger than it appears in the photographs. Also, the grounds are very extensive with the marvellous pool, vegetable garden and fruit trees.
The villa is in a perfect location right on the edge of Rufina which gives you the feel of being in the country, with classic Tuscany views, but at the same time within walking distance to the town. Rufina is also an ideal base for exploring Tuscany. Florence is best visited by train from the nearby station, but if you have a car, all the main tourist sites and places of interest are just a short drive away.
We guarantee you will not find anywhere better around this price range.
This property is just 5 minutes walk to the train station and to the village of Rufina where you will find everything you need grocery shops supermarket a Saturday farmers market tuscany restaurants a fishing lake with pizzeria where you can fish. A regular service of local train to Santa Maria Novella (Florence trains station Down town walking area) it takes only 25 minutes. It is the perfect place to relax in Tuscan country side but at the same time close enough to Florence and to be able to explore one of the most artistic city of the world. You can have also day trips to Siena, Arezzo and Pisa.
