About the Owner

Gloria and Francesca: our life styles and experiences are very different, and thanks to this "mixed blessing" at beginning of the nineties with our husbands we decided to embark on our incredible adventure that has brought new life to our Mulino di Rimaggio. Passionately in love with Tuscany, enthusiastic about its history and territory and ready to share our knowledge with you so that you can have your own special memories of our mill and its surroundings.

Today we left the appartment where we had a wonderful week.

Francesca speaks very good English and is a great host.

The appartment is build in the old mill with still some charming old details inside. House was spotless (she was complaining because she saw the cleaners had left a spiderweb at the outside of the house) and large with 3br/2ba.

Garden was beautifull and the pool was awesome. For our teenagers it was a big plus that the wifi was fast. The mill is located in the valley which means there is a rather steep climb(partially unpaved) but also it is very quiet.

Only one small issue was that our terrace didn't have sunlight early in the morning when I enjoyed the breakfast(maybe end of June it is there, but end of august not).

I can recommend this appartment to anyone who likes quietness and a great pool. If you like noise and want a disco nearby don't go there.

Owner's Response: Yes, we love that every thing is properly clean inside and outside, we want that our guests feel confortable and enjoy our place as much as possible. I have never noticed that there isn't sunlight in the early morning in the front garden of the Mill-Stones unit in August, but of course the sun changes its position in the different months, I have to check next time when I am there !!! The pool and the quietnes are our must I agree ! Thank you for your visit.
