Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bath and the Space and Freedom to Get Away from it All

Mulino di Anqua is a private, luxurious villa where you will have the freedom and space to get-away from it all. You will find only simplicity, peace, privacy, freedom, excellent service, the best food and drink, and the time to truly embrace the Tuscan life. The villa, from the beginning of its restoration, was intended to allow our guests to celebrate, play, dream, create and enjoy. Receiving guests at the villa gives us a genuine feeling of gratitude and enjoyment.

All of our guests remember the villa's serenity and stillness. The villa is a former 16 c mill that underwent a 10 year restoration. It is carefully maintained by the owner/architect. The intention with the restoration was to maintain the integrity of the Mill's history. The stones that make up the structure of the villa were all collected from the river that runs by the property just as it was done 400 years ago. The villa is lavishly decorated and designed to provide both the comforts of modern life and the warm hospitality of a country villa. Each villa has 2 bedrooms - a total of 4 bedrooms. With over twenty years experience in the luxury hospitality industry, we look forward to offering you the best services upon request ( including butler, chef, yoga classes, massage, special events and more). We organize your experience to make your stay unique.

We love being a part of the local village of Radicondoli - the people of the village are our dear and kind friends. Receiving guests at the villa gives us a true feeling of happiness. We look forward to assisting you before, during and/or after your stay at the Villa - we want your vacation in Italy to feel as if you have somehow fulfilled a dream. For us, it truly is a great pleasure to share this little corner of the world with our guests, some of whom have become dear friends."

Gearardo purchased this villa in 2000

Why Gearardo chose Radicondoli

It was December 2000 when I discovered the villa (by chance) after it had been abandoned for over forty years.The vast nature of Anqua, the abundance of pure water and the potentiality of what was left of the architectural structure led me with all my enthusiasm and passion into the 10 years restoration process. The goal was to transform the XVI century Mill of Anqua into a place where the untouched nature and the comfort of modern day coexist.The sound of the of nearby stream and the flourishing vegetation surrounding the property make this villa unique. You will be transported to a different time and place. You will feel like you are at your own private Resort. Enjoy a walk (or a horseback ride) through the countryside. . The villa is about a 1 hour drive to Siena,

Florence, Chianti, and most major tourist attractions yet the only sound you will hear at the villa are those of the surrounding nature.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is an oasis of tranquility. The sound of the stream flowing by creates an immediate feeling of relaxation and calm. The architectural details and furnishings throughout the property are refined and exquisite. The beds are handmade and offer the finest comfort. We provide fine linens, duvet pillows and comforters. The pool is treated with Sicilian sea salt and is filled each year with our very own mineral water! There is even a bamboo garden.

There is daily maid and concierge service so that you will have a luxurious and relaxing stay.

We offer additional services upon request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gerardo, Nancy and I had a great time in Italy fulfilling a lifelong dream of exploring Tuscany and experiencing everything Italy has to offer. We wanted to thank you for allowing us the priveledge of staying at Mulino di Anqua, you have every right to be proud of what you have created, your home and it's surroundings are simply majestic. Nancy and I both loved every minute of our time spent there. It is not often that you can feel so at home when you are away from home but we did because of how welcomed you made

us feel throughout the entire rental process. We hope you and Lisa had a wonderful vacation too and we are hopeful that our paths will meet in the future, maybe on another visit to your beautiful home. Nancy will make sure to highlight our experience on the VBRO website so others have the opportunity to have the same experience we did, thanks again.

A little slice of Tuscan heaven

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the most relaxing and amazing week at this beautiful property. It was everything we hoped it would be and more, and Gerardo was the most incredible host (and chef!). We were traveling with our 2 young kids and my parents, and the set up was great for that as we could be in the main house with the kids and my parents could have their own house and space (and quiet!) just across the courtyard. The home was completely gut renovated from 2000-2010, and everything still feels new and in excellent condition, and truly more luxurious than I was expecting from a Tuscan farmhouse (the bathrooms were great, the AC worked really well in all the bedrooms and was so quiet, the wifi worked well). The pool was wonderful, and even had a little shallow wading pool at the bottom which was perfect for the kids. There was also a great tree swing that our kids loved. :) It also had an electronic driveway gate and fence around the property that functioned both for security (hardly seemed necessary) and more importantly to keep out the animals (deer, wild pigs, etc).

The kitchens were fully equipped and there is also an awesome pizza oven. Gerardo cooked dinner for us the night we arrived and it was so great we had him cook again another night for us - best food we had all trip!

The location of the villa is somewhat remote, but also not far from really everything you would want to see in Tuscany - Florence, Siena, Chianti, vineyards, even the beach! The closest town is Radicondoli (about a 15 min drive) and it was so incredibly charming (it also is known for having one of the most famous pizza restaurants in all of Italy.)

All in all, this was the trip of a lifetime. I hope we are able to visit again!
