This was my 4th visit to il mulino - which should tell you everything you need to know! This place is the perfect getaway - a quiet retreat where you can relax and unwind in the tranquillity of the countryside.
Angela and Maurice were enormously helpful even before the trip began, recommending transport options and even offering to do the first shop so that we had provisions ready for when we arrived. They are always so welcoming, and are extremely knowledgeable about things to do and visit in the area.
While there are plenty of beautiful Tuscan cities to visit nearby, I mainly like to spend time by the river relaxing. There are plunge pools, waterfalls and shallow areas for children, and it is the perfect temperature to cool off in the hot sun. In the evenings, we love to go for food in nearby villages. The traditional dishes are made with fresh and local ingredients and the quality is outstanding, for very little money. There is a particularly good pizzeria just up the hill where we are now regulars!
On Angela and Maurice’s recommendation we’ve done numerous walks in the unspoilt countryside. There really is something for everyone here, and I’ve come back completely rejuvenated, which is what a holiday is all about.
I already can’t wait to come back, thanks again!
We had an amazing fortnight, we all enjoyed the mill to its maximum! The place is a true magical location, with its river a few meters away.
Maurice and Angela are lovely people, caring for their guests, providing great tips about Italy and places to visit as well.
We came back from our holidays fully rested and enchanted. The children loved splashing and diving in the river and waterfalls.
Thanks again for letting us enjoy your little wonder. Helene, Tammo, Roos, Niels & Lise
After spending year after year in the South of France we decided to look for something different. The Mill was simply fantastic,equipped with everything you could possibly need.The views were amazing,our daughter said she felt like a Princess living at the top of a castle.We also thought we had fallen in to a fairytale.Sitting at the stone table in the evening with a glass of wine listening out for any animals which were in the area together with the river flowing by was one of the many highlights.The waterfall which was only a two minute walk from the mill (still inside the the beautifull gardens) was a delight and swimming in the pool below it was wonderfull. Even although it was high season we still had the pool to ourselves 95% of the time.
We arrived with the idea that we would have a day in Florence,San Marino etc, but we soon agreed that we did not want to go very far away from the mill. Badia Teldada a 5 minute drive away had everything we needed bakers Butchers etc.
The Sunday lunch at l erbhosteria in Rofelle is an experience not to be missed.
This was booked for us by the mills owners Angela and Maurice who lived close by and were easy to find if you needed help or advice on the area.This is a place we hope to visit again.It suits couples and familys with kids very well.
Peaceful surrondings, friendly hosts, good food, beautiful mill and splendid swims in the river! We can really recommend a vacation at Il Mulino!
Il Mulino is quite simply beautiful! The countryside is stunning and peaceful, delicious food and so much to do. The beach, river walks, medieval towns to explore all on the doorstep. The Mill is spacious, clean and well equipped, with beautiful inside and outside space. Maurice and Angela are the perfect hosts, discreet but always willing and available to give information and advice
Definitely a place to return to
