“Rustic Italy at its best! An exceptional stay!”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A wonderful escape in the countryside! We loved every minute of our stay and were very sad to leave .... If only this was closer to the UK we would go very often! The Mill was quirky (photos do not do it justice) but so very comfortable with everything one needs, and more! We loved having the river right at the edge of the Mill and 'used' it daily to walk in, explore, sun tan and have lovely swims -very refreshing! Better than a swimming pool! The owners live near the Mill and, although not intrusive, are very friendly, helpful and will do anything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Angela even did a shop of the basics for me prior to our arrival! What a lovely personal touch! We loved the peace, the safety, the ability to go on long walks/runs. We saw wild boar and deer very close to the house. No need to access the Internet with such entertainment on ones doorstep! The best was in the evenings where we observed the wonderful fairyland spectacle of fireflies! Amazingly beautiful!
The Mill is driving distance to the local village where basic supplies can be got but one does pass larger towns where all other supplies can be obtained when on a day trip etc. The area is full of lovely villages to explore with enough restaurants around to sample the local fare, but if you just want to 'self cater' for everything the Mill has it all, including the ability to barbecue. Loved it! Go see for yourself!

“Lovely house, tranquil spot.”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a lovely week with grandparents, parents and 2 young children staying at Il Mulino. Everyone, including grandparents, enjoyed building dams on the river. We had a great lunch on the Sunday at a restaurant in Rofelle, as recommended by Maurice and Angela. We worked up an appetite by walking to the restaurant, before enjoying delicious local food. We had several day trips to towns in the local area, but otherwise we relaxed and enjoyed our surroundings.
Looking forward to making a return trip.

It was lovely to meet you and watch your little (and big!) ones enjoy the river. Thank you for your review. By the way, the restaurant you enjoyed up the mountain is called l'herbosteria and features highly in Good Food guides for its specialist Sunday meals. People travel a long way to savour Manuela and Piero's food and wine.

“Tranquil Tuscan escape - absolutely magical!”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in July 2014

With my husband and our baby son, we enjoyed two weeks of total relaxation in this fabulous water mill. When asked, nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Angela and Maurice. The river is perfect for splashing and swimming in. The local town (Badia Tedalda) is a short drive away and has some excellent and reasonably priced restaurants, including the best pizza we have ever eaten! There are also a few friendly shops to pick up fresh fruit and veg, freshly baked bread and a fantastic butchers to cater for starry-night barbecues. We really feel like we have discovered a truly special place and will definitely be back.

Thank you, Ordonez family, for coming to stay with us again and for providing us with a wonderful evening's musical entertainment - enjoyed by many of our local friends too up at Piero's bar, Il Castello up at Rofelle. If you don't mind we would like to use some of your photos taken down by the river of the dragonflies and waterfall. Hasta luego! Or "a presto!". Angela and Maurice.
