500 Years Worth of Charm

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to believe Mulinmaria (the name of this lovely home) is only 200 years old when there is clearly 500 years of charm here. My husband and I stayed here with our 4 children (ages 15, 12, 11 and 9) after Christmas and had the most wonderful, memorable time. Mulinmaria is a beautiful stone home nestled warmly in an olive grove. The history is rich and palpable, one bedroom even has a grist stone in it, the woodwork, the stone work is all custom and gorgeous. We didn't expect to love the little town of Arezzo so much, we asked the owner (she's truly an ambassador of Arezzo and of Tuscany) for some guiadnce beyond what the books tell you...we couldn't believe when Nadia offered to meet the 'old city'. We had a lovely afternoon and learned so much about the history of this very important town. But back to the house, our kids felt like they were in a castle (so did I), they sang, played hide and seek, explored the olive groves, etc....I enjoyed cooking, reading and relaxing with my husband. We cannot wait to come back to Arezzo and will certainly come back to Mulinmaria....I can honestly say we loved our stay, the house and the people touched our hearts.

Tuscan Charm

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Mulinmaria 2 times now and each visit has been a very special experience. Nadia is a marvelous host who is very helpful in helping to discover local highlights. If you want the true Tuscan experience of living in the country, this is the place.

Picture perfect! This villa was everything we expected and more. This a favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything Nadia said it would be. I took my wife and parents for a week-long getaway and we were all so impressed. Nadia and Nicola were great hosts. They were very informative and very easy to communicate with. Nadia was so involved in helping me plan this vacation for my family. She definitely went above and beyond. This is the perfect place and surroundings to either explore Tuscany or just getaway from it all. You will not go wrong with this place. I can't tell u guys thank you enough! Best vacation!!!

Zinaida was such a wonderful hostess from the first moment... It was like we were staying at our Grandmother or Aunts home for the holidays. Everything was really neat and clean. It was so impressive that she has taken what use to be a mill and created a home with everything from coffee, sugar, bottled water, hairdryers, clothes washer, table linens, extra bedding and plug converters to make your stay comfortable and easy while traveling far from your own home. The views are spectacular and the grounds well kept. It is a perfect place for a family to reconnect and relax.. I only wish we had more time to spend there... Thank you for your kindness and hospitality...Arrivederci! fino a quango ci incontriamo di nuovo....

This was a wonderful place to stay in Tuscany. Nadia and Roberto were great hosts. Nadia assisted us in every way before our trip and during. She help us arrange a guide for the area and a winery tour that both turn to be awesome. The home has to be seen, they have transformed a 200+ year olive mill into a crazy cool Tuscany cottage surrounds by the mountains and the valley! It location is perfect..1hr. south of Florence and 15 min form Arezzo and Cortona.. must see cities. We have a family of 6 with 4 adult teenagers and the house set up was perfect. it would be perfect for most any set up with sleeping up to 7 or 8. the property has a grove of olive trees with a stream running through and it a church to be view for the back balcony with it bells ringing. It was the perfect stay for us after a busy week traveling the rest of Italy. we had asked for a dinner one night with Nadia and Roberto prepared a family style Italian dinner to knock our socks off. I would recommend this place to any of my friends traveling in the area. thanks Nadia!!

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.
