Our first two visits were so wonderful we just had to come back again. The excellent level of service has been consistent over the years. The owners were so helpful and knowledgeable. There is now a dining room on site and we enjoyed the most wonderful meals. The apartments are beautifully decorated. You know you are in Tuscany the moment you pass through the doorway. We had guided excursions every day and learned so much about the history and beauty of Tuscany. We are already planning our next trip. This is the ideal starting point for your tours of Tuscany.
It is since 2014 that I visited villa La Mucchia, and this October again. Everything is perfect and the dinning room they added is fantastic. This time I came with a group of friends and we had great time, even though the weather was not friendly, the hosts are very much friendly and the breakfasts were so rich and tasty. We shall come over agagin and again in each occasion. It is not just a vacation, it is to live at the villa is like to go back in time for hundreds years and to enjoy it.
My husband, his best friend and wife stayed at La Mucchia for a few nights in Sept. I was given a recommendation to stay here by a friend and thought it would be great. It was a lovely place, although our room had roaches/bugs everywhere which made it very unpleasant. We notified the owners and were told "this is the country" and given a bottle of bug spray. I honestly wouldnt expect to kill bugs in my room while on vacation and found it extremely uncomfortable.The owner and his brother were very nice, however it seemed that they cater to large groups so we didnt meet the criteria for meals to be cooked or tours of the area.
We were there for 3 days this September. We had an upstairs room and our friends had a down stairs room. This location caterers mainly to large groups. Unfortunately they did not change our towels the whole time we were there. The bed was comfortable and clean, but our friends had roaches in their apartment downstairs. The artwork in
Staying at Villa La Mucchia was a dream come true. Our suite with its ambiance of old world Italy was clean and provided everything we needed for a week's visit. Breakfasts were hearty and delightful with fruits, cheeses, meats, eggs, homemade bread and coffee- a perfect meal before a day of sightseeing in Cortona and the quaint towns nearby. Our hosts and hostesses were delightful and so helpful with planning sightseeing trips to areas in the Tuscany region. The Villa was a welcome home away from home to return to in the evenings. Situated on a quiet road among farms, sleeping well was an added bonus to our stay there. I can't thank Uri, Zev, Quirini and Elena enough for their outstanding hospitality and graciousness. I can't wait to visit again! Jan G.
