Almost the entire apartment runs along the banks of the Mulino di Rimaggio and it enjoys the atmosphere of the gently bubbling water.
The airy apartment is on 2 floors connected by an easy staircase. The ground floor consists of the kitchen with a pleasant view over the stream and a dining area that leads onto the garden with terrace, a living corner, a cosy twin bedded room with fireplace and a bathroom with shower cabin.
On the upper floor there is a large double bedded room that looks over the stream on 2 sides, the bathroom with shower cabin and a large twin bedded room with French windows leading directly on a little terrace with a table and chairs and onto the edges of the swimming pool. This apartment has its own private gate.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, gas stove, electric oven, and all cooking tools, bread toaster, electric coffee machine and moka; dishes, glasses and cuttlery for 6 people. Linen and towels are courtesy of the house.
The Mulino nestles on the Valdarnese slopes of the Chianti hills and it is in the middle of the "golden triangle" of Florence, Siena and Arezzo, famous for its artistc heritage, landscape and its world famous wine and food. The nearest villages, Cavriglia, Montevarchi, San Giovanni, have shops, supermarkets and outlets where to find all that you need. Each apartment has a double entrance and private garden with outside table, chairs and market umbrella. The ample parking facilities and a laundry room supplied with iron and press board are communal. The property is surrounded by a spacious garden that stretches from the banks of the stream to the private road. Round the pool there is plenty of space to enjoy the summer sun. Each apartment has its own well organized harmonious green area where our guests can enjoy the cool of their own apartment. Majestic walnut trees, poplars, acacias and oaks, grow along the stream. The lawn offers sweet smelling bushes and aromatic herbs.
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.
We were made so welcome by Francesca and Gloria. Francesca was amazing at helpfully answering my emailed queries in her perfect english before we arrived. The villa itself was very spacious and well equipped with everything we needed. They even supplied plug-in mosquito repellent! The pool and setting are beautiful, so quiet and relaxing.
You need a hire car to get around but that is easy enough. If you park in the free parking at Montevarchi is just 40 minutes to Florence by train- much easier than driving and parking. The supermarkets nearby are excellent and there is a restaurant in walking distance though i admit, we never felt the need to go.
We used a good insect repellant in the evening as there were mosquitos but not that bad., when you are by trees and water you have to expect that. There were 2 other families staying which was great and kept our young kids amused. The pool is wonderful, big enough to swim lengths but not too deep for my 8 year old. And there were pletny of loungers and deck chairs for every one.
I should also mention (though sorry to) the wifi was excellent!!
We arrived at the Mulino do Rimaggio at about 22.00 on Sunday after our GPS taking us in completely the wrong direction, Francesca was kind enough to keep in touch with us and assist us in finding the place and Gloria was there on our arrival (she waited till way past check in) and showed us around. They had stocked the little fridge with milk and the cupboard with coffee, biscuits and fresh bread. It was these personal touches that really made us feel welcome! Francesca and Gloria were kind enough to give us a few tips of places to go and see and we couldnt have been happier with all the beautiful towns we visited!
The property itself was immaculate and kept and in a fantastic condition, it was spacious and traditionally decorated, we had a stunning outside area with a view of the forest and stream which we spent every night BBQing!! During the afternoons we would spend out time lazing by the stunning pool which got full sun all day and was so refreshing in the heat!
Our stay at the Muline di Rimmagio was amazing and we couldnt have asked for a more friendly, beautiful place to spend our week in Italy!
Thank you so much!!!
