5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Graet house, wonderfull hosts and a great!!! location to Tuscany and Umbria. We were in February 2013, 4 out of 5 days, sunny and a bit cold, but not enough cold to spoil the time there.

Last October, me and my wife decided to visit Tuscany, we have seen many years ago the movie Under the Tuscan Sun, and about 20 years ago we
have been to Florence,at that time we were accommodated in a Hotel in the old center of town.
This experience, to stay in 300 years old farmhouse, turned to luxurious suites lodgings was the highlight of our stay in Tuscany, and with the
good tips and restaurants ,cities of Art and breathtaking landscapes and to mention the good wine of Montepulziano (I hope to pronounce it well) this is Tuscany, we shall
be back, it was wonderful, thanks.

Last September, I was at La Mucchia villa in Cortona,Tuscany together with my 16 years old daughter and my husband, we were accommodated in suite number 4.
This suite has private access and a private terrace, one bathroom and 2 bedrooms with living room, very charming and spotless.
We had a very good tips from the owners, also we took a day biking around the nearer lake, afterwards we took the ferry to the islands.
There are plenty to do there, we stayed a week which was too short and hectic.
This year we decided to come back in October, for a longer period, and we think to take the same suite as last year,we shall recommend this villa to all our friends, it was the highlight of
our Tuscan experience.

We live in New York, and once a year we travel to another spot in Europe, to try out other places ,but we love Italy, especially the food and the atmosphere. A few years ago, I think 5, we went to a special farmhouse near the town of Cortona, and last December we decided to give it another try, as we remembered the good experience we had 5 years ago.
The place is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL and the hosts are fantastic- they are so helpful with anything you might need, and we even went out for a pizza with them.
The rooms were spotless, shiny, the kitchen was very artistically Tuscan style made, everything was wonderful and we even got lucky with the weather!. This was absolutely the highlight of our trip for the end of the year, not to mention the Christmas period with all the decorations in the streets. I would definitely recommend La Mucchia to everyone!

We arrived at La Mucchia as newly weds for a romantic and relaxing honeymoon.We couldn't have chosen better.The cosy suite in the beautiful old structure with gardens and swimmingpool for lazing about ,invited us to do just that.And whenever we wanted to take some sightseeing trips ,the owners were there to advise us about places ,restaurants ,events.We chose La Mucchia on advise of friends,and we are happy that we took it.

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.
