We spent a week at La Mucchia in late September and had a lovely time. We chose La Mucchia because of the other positive reviews and because we wanted a comfortable "home base" for exploring Tuscany for the first time. We rented Suite #3 for our group of five (me, my husband, our 4.5-year-old, our 1.5-year-old, and my mother). After an uncertain beginning (no one was home when we arrived, in the rain, and our phone didn't seem to work with the contact numbers), a friendly neighbor contacted Zev, who came to welcome us. Our unit was very comfortable and tastefully decorated, inside and out. We used the kitchen for several dinners. The kids LOVED the spacious backyard and play structure, and the chickens that sometimes wandered over from next door. We enjoyed freshly picked figs and tomatoes - heavenly! The unit also had a nice TV with satellite. Though we're not a TV-oriented family, the kids really enjoyed Clifford in Italian!
We loved how convenient La Mucchia was to the Tuscan hill towns -- Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Arezzo, etc. The nearby town of Camucia was our go-to place for everyday things -- groceries at EuroStar and the most wonderful cappuccini every morning at Cafe Vanneli. The other nearby town, of course, is the beautiful and more famous Cortona, where we spent two days sightseeing. Uri and Zev provided several restaurant recommendations, including Pizzeria Il Cortona, which we loved so much that we went there TWICE for dinner!
We had a wonderful Tuscan vacation and we recommend La Mucchia for other couples and families.
