Just retired Swiss citizen, speaking French, English, German and Italian. I love to travel, read, go the theatre and have a pronounced taste for good food, good wine and cosy surroundings.

Tuscany was the evident choice.

Danièle Vance purchased this apartment in 2011

I always loved Tuscany and through Italian friends, I discovered Borgo Mummialla during its reconstruction. I so decided to acquire a property for myself and two others for renting to allow others to enjoy the place as well. So in 2011 I bought a ruin which became the house you see on the pictures!

The reconstruction quality according to the very strict norms and the perfect choice of craftsmen involved in this work, confers to this village an outstanding atmosphere where both Tuscan traditions are mixed with modern comfort. Then there are the exceptional surroundings : quiet, birds singing, great views, etc.

A TUSCAN JEWEL !

  • 5 out of 5
Best way to sum up our stay is that we were truly, truly sad to leave...it will be for 2 weeks (or more) next time.

The site (Borgo) is quaint, beautiful and quiet. The infinity pool is out of this world and enjoying a nice glass of Chianti Classico (bought in local wineries on our numerous day trips) by the pool each evening, with views on Volterra across the valley, was splendid!

We were well received by the manager of the Boscaiola who was extremely polite and pleasant (even though we arrived a bit late and kept him from the Mondiale, with Italy playing...). The unit (Boscaiola) was very comfortable, extremely clean, and had all required amenities (appreciated the washing machine which is a rare find).

The location of Borgo di Mommialla is also great, close to Gambassi Terme, San Gimignano, and Volterra. We visited pretty well all of Tuscany on our day trips and concluded that this area is the most picturesque.

After each day off bombing around the countryside we were always happy to come 'home' to the beautiful and peaceful Borgo.

Italy - awesome; Tuscany - breathtaking; La Boscaiola - priceless

This isn't heaven on earth....but you can see it from here! Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Dear guests!

Getting wonderful reviews about my property, the little village of Mummiala and its surroundings, is a very appreciated treat and, once again, confirms to me that my choice to invest there was a good one! Providing the possibility for guests to enjoy it as well proves rewarding. Mummialla is a very special place and having guests who take good care of the property is highly valued. Thank you for your wonderful review. I will be happy to have you stay longer another time and to personally meet you also. Thank you!

ROMANTIC TUSCAN HIDEAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely fabulous property. Beautifully appointed historic site. Owner was so gracious and helpful. And the peace and serenity were enhanced by the scents of the herb and jasmine garden as well as the infinity pool overlooking the vineyards and olive groves.

WONDERFUL STAY, LOVELY RENTAL, LOVED IT!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment La Boscaiola is really lovely. Tasteful interior, lovely furniture and everything I needed for a peaceful, restful stay. The historical village was everything I expected and more. The infinity pool and its setting so serene. No swimming this time, still a bit chilly, but lounging around was wonderful. Fabio, the owner's representative was very helpful and is really super friendly. I shall return

WUNDERVOLLE ERHOLSAME WOCHE VERBRACHT!!

  • 5 out of 5
Wir durften bis gestern eine romantische Woche in der La Boscaiola in Borgo Mummialla verbringen. Das Dorf ist vor kurzem sehr liebevoll und detailgetreu restauriert worden. Es befindet sich mitten in der Natur, jedoch kann man auch gut mit dem Auto in ca. 10 - 15 min San Gimignano und in ca . 25 min Volterra erreichen (Weltmeistereis und Geschlechtertürme unbedint anschauen!!Die Ausstattung ist gehoben, Gasherd, Ofen, Spülmaschine, Waschmaschine und Kamin, Klimaanlage, Heizung etc...alles ist vorhanden. Das Bett ist sehr bequem! Uns begeisterte vorallem die ruhige Lage und der wunderschöne Blick sowohl von der Unterkunft als auch von dem tollen Pool mit Blick auf Volterra. Die Eigentümerin kümmerte sich auch im Vorfeld sehr gut um unseren Aufenthalt, informierte uns unter anderem mit GPS Daten sodass die Anreise gut möglich war und auch Fabio, der Verwalter vor Ort. war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. (Leckeres selbergepresstes Öl). Wir werden bestimmt mal wieder kommen:-))

A VISITER ABSOLUMENT

  • 4 out of 5
Un village toscan au milieu de la campagne avec un panoramique exceptionnel. L'appartement est parfait pour un couple. Les repas sur la terrasse avec une vue sur Volterra sont un grand moment. L'accueil est très sympa. L'appartement est très bien équipé et propre. On est comme à la maison. Le plus c'est aussi la piscine. Je le recommande pour ceux qui aime le pittoresque de la toscane et la tranquillité. Des vacances où se combinent calme et charme de la campagne et les visites culturelles. Un petit restau simple et sympa à 3km si on ne veut pas faire la cuisine.
