The space

The villa is located 10 km south of Arezzo, the setting for Roberto Benigni's 'Life is Beautiful'. It is a city characterized by a beautiful array of architectural styles, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheatre and the Medici Fortress; there also is an international Equestrian Centre.The first weekend of each month features a popular antique fair, while two times a year the town hosts a festival called 'Joust of the Saracen,' where all citizens dress in a medieval attire. It is also well situated to day trips throughout Tuscany, including nearby Cortona (20km), Assisi, Val d'Orcia (40km), Chianti, Perugia and Lake Trasimeno, as well as Florence (80km) and Siena (60km).

Guest access

Guests will have access to the whole villa and the garden outside. In case of using only one bedroom and one bathroom (and the daily spaces), we offer a reduction of the price.

Interaction with guests

We don't live in the villa, but we live 10 minutes far (so for any reason, we can be there in a very short time). We usually come twice/three times a week to water the garden and the vegetable garden, so we will probably meet! We like to know personally our guests, so if you have time, we can have a glass of wine on the terrace while chatting. But we also like to leave you your privacy, so we won't be a constant presence.

We spent 6 days at Nadia's beautiful home and couldn't have been happier with the villa! Nadia is the warmest host - she even came and found us when we got lost & when she learned it was my husband's b'day, she made the most delicious tiramisu that was waiting for us when we arrived! The bedrooms are roomy and so comfortable, but our favorite room was the homey, well equipped kitchen where we cooked dinners every evening and sat around the table discussing our day. We visited Assisi, Cortona, Volterra, San Gimignano and other smaller villages, all within easy driving distance from the villa. I just wish we could have stayed another week. Saying goodbye to Nadia was like leaving a good friend.

This is a beautiful charming rustic house. Nadia is very kind and passionate about her region. The house is fully equiped, quiet in olive trees fields (you just hear trains down the valley). There are a lot of nice cities to visit around. Arezzo is just 6km away and worth visiting too. We had a nice time there, thanks Nadia !

Everything you would expect a Tusacn Villa to be and more. Nadia is the most gracious and helpful host and I would not hesitate to book again in the future. Bellissimo!

This was my second visit to Mulinmaria. I spent a week here with a group of close friends 2 years ago, and returned with my family this time--my husband, son, and daughter-in-law. The villa is centrally located for all of your adventures in Tuscany. Don't neglect to explore nearby Arezzo. We spent 2 delightful evenings enjoying the festive summer vibe, strolling the streets and joining the locals. Nadia is an attentive, responsive host, when issues/questions arise, but fully unobtrusive. The living area is stocked with a collection of travelers' resources; you can delve into the art, history, culture of the area to your hearts content, if you choose. The extensive outdoor terrace space, surrounded by olive trees, with views of the hilltop church and bell tower, and a wide view of the Val di Chianna, is perfect for quiet, peaceful breakfasts and evening meals, or just relaxing.

Thank you again Christine for your second visit to Mulinaria! It was really moving to meet you (with your family) again! Thanks for the (too short) time we had the chance to spend together chatting! My best to you! Nadia

Mulinmaria has an amazing history and is set in a tranquil location. It is a great spot to explore both Tuscany and Umbria. You will require a car to access this place and to get around. Arezzo and Cortona are wonderful towns to visit and within easy driving distance from the house. Nadia is an extremely generous hostess and was very obliging with our many requests. If you want to avoid the tourist traps and have a personalised experience then I would highly recommend Mulinmaria and Zinaida's wonderful hospitality.

This place was a gorgeous Tuscan dream for me and my family i was so captivated by the charm of the the house, the house is very big and it is like a maze, a lot of details and a great atmosphere. the houses location is perfect, you have the privacy and the quietness. and you can go to the Arezzo Center by car in 15 - 20 mins. There are some markets and a coffee shop and a bakery near the house. The host Nadia is a very lovely lady she is very helpful she was always there to answer all our questions. And you can feel her passion and love for the house. If you visit this house i would recommend you To visit Podere di Pomaio winery, it was a dreamy place with delicious wine, with a passionate lovely host and it's not far from the house. If you are searching a charming house with tuscan feeling and local tuscan life, I highly recommend this beautiful house.
