The Villa was all that we had imagined it would be. The view is unforgettable and the surroundings of the house the most idyllic. We all had a great time and we look forward to meet you in summer when we come back to Lucca and stay at your amazing apartment! Ciao, Val

I am recommending this farmhouse to all of my family and friends! And I would love to go back one day. It’s well restored and maintained and very clean. It is located in a very private setting set back from the road . The photos on the site show exactly what you get. The surroundings were very peaceful and relaxing. The house is in a quiet village and it is perfect for relaxation and equally well placed for daily trips to Lucca, Pisa and Florence. Close to the beach and ideal for exploring the heart of Tuscany. Lorella welcomed us and immediately advised us of places to see and good restaurants to dine. She was very kind and gave us all the needed information. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet stay after a busy day of being a tourist in Tuscany.

We were greeted warmly by our host, Mark, who had taken care to ensure our fridge was stocked with refreshments and who took the time to personally escort us to a grocery store. Mark's hospitality continued throughout our two-week visit as he checked in on us regularly. We were delighted to find everything we could possibly need in our home away from home, enjoying its comforts and fabulous views. Thanks to Mark's generosity we were also able to enjoy fresh grapes and tomatoes from his vines and assorted herbs in his garden. We really appreciated the recommendations Mark provided to us, in person, and through the copious resource material available to us. While we enjoyed many day trips to wonderful places like Florence and Pisa, we also stayed "home" many days enjoying challenging hikes, and curling up with one of the many novels available for our reading pleasure, and enjoying many at-home meals prepared in our well-equipped kitchen. We highly recommend Il Mulinetto to all, with the exception of those who would not be comfortable driving on narrow roads with a few hairpin turns.
