“A special place”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Il Mulino is a beautiful, very special place. It feels like a home, tastefully but simply decorated in a comfortable, low-key way. The kitchen is well equipped with nice crockery and plenty of salad bowls, dishes etc. There's even a salad spinner! The lighting is good - both ambient and functional. All windows (bar one) look out over the river and the woodland beyond. The river is great for paddling, ideal for children, with the odd pool deep enough for swimming - indeed the waterfall below the mill provides a very invigorating shoulder massage!

Unfortunately our holiday coincided with the first rain in three months which didn't detract from the beauty of the place - however, when the sun came out, it was transformed into a rural idyll, bathed in sunlight right the way through until mid evening. Although it is off the beaten track, there is an excellent restaurant at the agriturismo within walking distance (along an old mule track) and it is possible to continue along this track up the hill to the nearest village (40 minute walk) where there are a few basic food shops, bars and restaurants (not investigated on our visit). The nearest town is a good half hour's drive away so Il Mulino is very much geared towards people who are looking for a peaceful, tranquil setting emersed in nature and all it has to offer. The small, medieval town of Anghiari is well worth a visit (approximately 45 minute drive) - otherwise we stayed put, chilling out with books, good food, wine and the odd bout of fishing - and, of course, sunbathing when the weather permitted! Sheer bliss ...

“A little slice of rural Tuscany heaven”
Reviewed September 20, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We had an idyllic ten days break at Il Mulino with my three grown up children and a girlfriend, swimming in the river pools just below the house, walking in the woods nearby and eating at the local restaurants. The countryside is stunning and you are only an hour away from beautiful cities like Arezzo and San Sepolchro. The owners Angela and Maurice live nearby and could not be more helpful, taking every trouble to make your stay enjoyable but never being intrusive. We cannot fault it!

“We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Il Mulino is a wonderful house to stay in and we had an amazing week there at the end of August 2012. In fact, I think it may have healing properties as I have been told that I looked younger when we got back! The setting is magical with the babbling river running alongside and we were lulled to sleep by it every night after swimming in it every day. My 14 year old son fished to his heart's content and my 17 year old daughter and I sunbathed, read, swam, cooked and talked in what felt like a time warp. It is a wonderful place to disappear to and retire from the world, without being a world away.

Angela and Maurice Petch could not be better hosts and provided us with a large collection of useful leaflets and information, as well as being very helpful and available for advice.

“Very restful, in great landscape and an unspoilt part of rural Italy.”
Reviewed July 25, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Very good accommodation - well-equipped and comfy. Most sympathetic conversion of a historic watermill. We had warm, sunny weather so it was pleasant to cool down in the river.

Excellent walks in the nearby hills, and although some of the maps are 'optimistic' (ie misleading!) looking at all the maps and taking Angela and Maurice's advice sorted out some good routes. And excellent food in local eateries at reasonable prices, including one at Graziella's which we helped to prepare.

Good days out to Gubbio and Arezzo.
