We have just returned from spending a week at Il Mulinaccio and I can honestly say it was an unforgettable holiday. The villa itself is beautiful, spacious yet very cosy, and full of charm. And the surroundings are simply breathtaking. This is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy all the luxuries of Tuscany. Cathy and Steven were nothing short... More

Three weeks of heavenly bliss! Friends and family came and went - all wishing they could stay longer. This villa is absolutely beautiful - charming - private - close to towns yet secluded. The owners maintain it to perfection - including the multiple variety of seasonal flowers all around the grounds. And the swimming pool is amazing. We wish we... More

I have never left a review before but really wanted to for Mulinaccio, as we were so happy with the whole experience. Mulinaccio is in a perfect location, close to Florence, Siena, San Giminagno, Cortona, Arezzo. We visited lots of markets, enjoyed visiting some of the local villages. Went to several wineries. It was such an Ideal location as we... More

We loved every bit of staying in this gorgeous villa. The building itself has a rustic charm & just what we were looking for in our Tuscan family holiday. The highlights were the service (Cathy & Stephen were fantastic hosts), the pool and BBQ area, beautifully decorated rooms & the great food we had catered by the owners. Every detail... More

We're coming back. Paleo 2013 was the drawcard to Tuscany and then we found Cathy and Steve and their magical Il Mulinaccio. Just a short stay sadly but we've booked for 2015 with 5 bestie couples to introduce them to the magic. Turning into the gravel drive and passing the huge Italian tomatoes and basil in the vegie patch we... More

Two things I hope for when I stay somewhere new: the gasp (the degree to which the place takes your breath away); and the grasp ( the genuineness and understanding you feel from the owner/host). The gasp ... the smile that emerged on our faces as we wound around the bend in the driveway to see il Mulinaccio in front... More

I just love Il Mulinaccio! The villa certainly exceeded all of our expectations when we travelled recently with a group of friends for a week's vacation. We all found the villa really easily as it's located just south of Giaole in Chianti - no white road - hurrah! and super directions! As soon as you drive through the gate and... More

It is difficult to summarize all that is special about Mulinaccio. Words like authentic, welcoming, intimate, peaceful and convenient come to miind, but they can't come close to describing the experience a guest takes away after a stay. The villa is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico, but incredibly easy to find between Radda in Chianti and Gaiole... More

We have stayed at Il Mulinaccio with a group friends a few times over the last couple years. As home owners in Umbria who restored our own villa 12 years ago, we can be a bit critical when spending nights away from our home. Il Mulinaccio is like going home...except you are in the heart of the best Chianti has... More

Not much you can say about Il Mulinaccio other than PERFECT. After living out of a suitcase for the previous 3 weeks through England, Scotland, Ireland & Venice, to come to a place like Il Mulinaccio was perfect in very way. The welcome Caterina & Stefano gave us was fantastic and to be able to treat their home as our... More
