“Wonderful "La Mucchia" in wonderful Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I travelled with my family , wife,two kids and one set of grandparents ,to Tuscany ,where we had never been before.We booked the biggest suite at La Mucchia, casa vacanza ,where all of us could stay very comfortable.The owners advised us during our search for the right suite ,and when we arrived , everything was as described and promised,even more so.
During our stay,8 days, the owners ,Quirina and family ,helped us every day to plan our trips, near and far ,gave us recommandations for restaurants , museums, shopping , activities for our kids.Without their help and directions, we would never have experienced so much of Tuscany.We want to thank you so much for making our family vacation so perfect , ans we certainly will try to send you our friends and family.

We stayed at la Mucchia Casa for almost a week during the month of October 2012. La Mucchia Casa is a beautiful place. The Tuscany atmosphere was all around. Our apartment was clean and well equipped. The Hotel is located at a prime location, close to the old city of Cortona and with an hour drive to Siena and an hour by train to Florence. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and very helpful with local tips and recommendations. We will be happy to return and recommend it warmly to everybody that goes to Tuscany.

This was our first time and hopefully not the last. We were a family of 6 and were given the largest apartment which included 2 bedrooms, a hall with 2 beds and a wide living room.
The apartment is well equipped and most welcoming.
The location is quite though central and though we did not use the facilities (barbecue, swimming pool, playground for kids) it was great. The Toscane atmosphere was felt.
The owners are more than welcoming and very helpful. They were eager to assist and guide with local tips and recommendations.
Keep up the good work and hope to see you again next time.

This was our second stay at La Mucchia and it was better than the first because this time we stayed for 8 glorious days. We rented a one bedroon unit which was large for 2 people.. The owners are great. Very helpful with recommendations & local information i.e. places to visit and where to eat. Will definitely visit again.

This was my first time to Italy and I was a single traveling with a group of friends from New York. We could not have stayed a more special "home away from home" than LaMucchia. The hosts were very welcoming and understanding of our needs and gracious in providing everything necessary to make our stay relaxing and fun. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and very "Tuscan" with stunning views of the countryside. Flowers were blooming everywhere on the well kept grounds of the villa with the scent of roses and jasmine greeting us each day. There was a lot to see and do in the area and I look forward to returning , not just to experience the beauty and history of the area, but to see my special friends, Uri and Zeev again. I highly recommend the LaMucchia experience to everyone.

Room Tip: Room #7 is at the very top floor, but the views both front and back are breathtaking and also the ro...

My husband and I and another couple stayed at La Mucchia for a week and could not have found a better place to call home. We have all been to Italy many times and have stayed in hotels, apartments and villas. We are so spoiled now, that a hotel is simply not doable for us anymore. La Mucchia was perfect, we started every day with breakfast in our apartment with the doors open to the beautiful rose and flower gardens right out our door. We were greeted with coffee, biscotti, wine and snacks all left in a basket for us, no need to dash out for groceries the 1st day. Every evening, after exploring Tuscan hill towns, Assissi, lots of Umbria and touring wineries, we returned to La Mucchia to take off our shoes, open a bottle of wine and sit out on the gorgeous property by the pool and look over to see Cortona on the hillside and say, “this is what we came to Italy to see and do”!
The owners, Uri and Quirina, are the most helpful, informative and totally “at your service” hosts anyone could experience. From the first time we contacted La Mucchia, Quirina helped us pick out an apartment that worked the best for us, it was huge and had no stairs and was perfect! We had a problem with picking up a rental car when we arrived Saturday afternoon at the Camucia train station. Only, we didn’t know there was a problem until Quirina was at the station when we arrived to inform us Sixt Car rental had notified her. She had come to the station to tell us and took us in her car to the rental office and translated for us in trying to work out the problem. She spent the better part of her Saturday with us, and would not leave us to attend to her day. Hours later, she took us back to the Sixt office and once again translated with another agent and solved the problem. We would not have had a car for 2 days without her, and we were off to a huge wine festival the next morning and needed that car! Uri and Quirina both always went above and beyond to make sure we all had everything we needed.
One morning as we were leaving, Uri asked where we were going and suggested several things we should see instead, and he was so right! After that, we always checked first with Uri and received so many fascinating itineraries, things we would have missed without La Mucchia and Uri!
There is no better location for exploring Tuscan hill towns and Umbria and no better place to “call home”. We can’t wait to go back for a visit next year!

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet and Quirina will help you pick the right apartment for your visit.

Had a great time traveling around the countryside. Visited villages, churches and an Abby. Also went to Florence by train. It was an amazing experience. Stayed at the villa for many meals...great food. Pool was delightful. We came with adult couples and had the whole villa to ourselves. It was an educational as well as relaxing experience. I would certainly recommend it to travelers who want a change from the packing and unpacking of the usual tourist trip. Tuscany is a great place...you have to experience for yourself.

Room Tip: They are all good. You cannot choose a bad one!
