Villa La Mucchia is positioned near Cortona in the heart of Tuscany, the town that became famous after the book and the movie “Under the Tuscan sun” by Frances Mayes. The Tuscany authentic style vacation house, originally built in 1760 is placed at the foot of the town of Cortona, which is an excellent spot for short day trips, because of the short distance to most of the cities around, such as: Montepulciano, Assisi, Florence, Siena, Perugia, the Lake of Trasimeno and Castiglione del lago, Pienza (Unesco heritage town) and many others. Within less then hour drive you can reach most of them. The holidays farmhouse, which was converted to suites hotel, is currently divided into seven luxurious individual apartments, in authentic Tuscan style, bounded by lawns, gardens, olive grove and other seasonal crops. The property includes parking, a children's play ground, splendid swimming pool surrounded by nature and views, sun terraces with views of Cortona city of Art.

This was our second stay at La Mucchia. My wife and I traveled with another couple and we were there for nine days. The rooms were first rate and our package included breakfast and dinner - prepared expertly. The hosts, two brothers and their wives, were terrific and provided transportation to beautiful locations such as Florence, Montepulciano and Sienna. We learned a lot of the culture and our hosts were very interesting and informative about that. I highly recommend La Mucchia to anyone interested in a great vacation under the Tuscan sun!

Our first two visits were so wonderful we just had to come back again. The excellent level of service has been consistent over the years. The owners were so helpful and knowledgeable. There is now a dining room on site and we enjoyed the most wonderful meals. The apartments are beautifully decorated. You know you are in Tuscany the moment you pass through the doorway. We had guided excursions every day and learned so much about the history and beauty of Tuscany. We are already planning our next trip. This is the ideal starting point for your tours of Tuscany.

Our friends, Diane and Carl! When you arrived for the first time, we felt so comfortable with you and we hoped to see you once again after you left from Arezzo. We did not imagine that we shall see you twice after your first visit. It was such wonderful to see you again, but what was most astonishing was the review and the cards we received by mail. We appreciate so much your wonderful words, so touching and straight from your heart. Thank you D and C. a big hug from all of us.

I spent 8 full days at this villa. The hosts are 2 couples, brothers and their wives. They live at the villa and are hands on hosts. Each apartment (where we stayed) had full amenities and very modern accommodations. The owners couldn't have been friendlier. The grounds are gorgeous with a large pool, gardens to stroll thru and patios to just relax. Great for a home base to travel thru Tuscany.

This villa surpassed all ordinary expectations of a restored 300 year old structure. Flourishing with flowers, with super host attention, and with large and small art everywhere; this pleased with beauty, friendship, and fresh local cuisine. The owners seemed like welcoming family, easily chatting with us and making sure we were transported to all our desired excursions. From big cities like Florence and Siena, to a thermal spa, to little town farm markets, to towns like Montepulciano and the medieval fortress at Castigleone del Lago, to a wine tasting, to treasured holy shrines like Assisi and Perugia, to a cooking class; we enjoyed it all with the help of our hosts.

It is since 2014 that I visited villa La Mucchia, and this October again. Everything is perfect and the dinning room they added is fantastic. This time I came with a group of friends and we had great time, even though the weather was not friendly, the hosts are very much friendly and the breakfasts were so rich and tasty. We shall come over agagin and again in each occasion. It is not just a vacation, it is to live at the villa is like to go back in time for hundreds years and to enjoy it.

My husband, his best friend and wife stayed at La Mucchia for a few nights in Sept. I was given a recommendation to stay here by a friend and thought it would be great. It was a lovely place, although our room had roaches/bugs everywhere which made it very unpleasant. We notified the owners and were told "this is the country" and given a bottle of bug spray. I honestly wouldnt expect to kill bugs in my room while on vacation and found it extremely uncomfortable.The owner and his brother were very nice, however it seemed that they cater to large groups so we didnt meet the criteria for meals to be cooked or tours of the area.

same answer as for your friends: We host couples, small groups, big groups, this is not the point: We do not serve breakfasts, we bring chef when we have a group who require this treatment. We never had roaches in our villa, never, never, never...otherwise one of the 220 reviewers would mention that. The small bugs are coming with the rain but for few days, very few of them in ground floor, we sprayed the apartments but new came.(not in quantities, just here and there.This happens once a year in this period. Sorry for that but it is out of our hands, as we said this is country side. Thanks anyway for being our guests, we did everything to please you, but it seems that you never visited other places like ours in Tuscany.

We were there for 3 days this September. We had an upstairs room and our friends had a down stairs room. This location caterers mainly to large groups. Unfortunately they did not change our towels the whole time we were there. The bed was comfortable and clean, but our friends had roaches in their apartment downstairs. The artwork in

This is our 8th time there - we travel frequently to Italy and LOVE this place. Great location for day trips to Florence, wineries, Pisa. Cortona is few miles up the hill and you can never get bored there. Vibrant city with restaurants, ice cream shops, lots of tourists and great views. The kids love it, spacious apartments the lovely pool and yard.

This review is long overdue. We are from California and visited La Mucchia in 2013 and had such a wonderful time that we brought our friends back with us in 2016. The Villa was everything we had hoped for and more. The rooms and the grounds were outstanding. Our hosts helped us with all the details of our trip and offered great advice and suggestions. I feel we became friends over the years and keep in touch. We all talk about how this was a trip of a lifetime and could not have gone any better. We hope to visit again one day and enjoy all the Villa has to offer.
