Dear Mauro and Family,

Mille Graci!!!! Staying at your villa was a highlight of our Italy vacation! We miss being there already! The Villa was decorated so beautiful and we had all the comforts of home. Thank you for making your villa seem like our home away from home. The amenities were plenty and we enjoyed the hammock, relaxing chairs, beautiful flowers and landscape, bocce, swimming pool and trampoline. Great area to hike and amazing views of Lake Trasimeno. The villa location was perfect to visit many wonderful hill towns such as Cortona, Montepulciano and Castiglione Del Lago. The train station is very close and made visiting Florence easy.

Graci to our amazing chef, Federico, who made our arrival dinner of brick oven pizza(the best pizza we have ever eaten) and our departure dinner of roasted chicken/potatoes, homemade spinach ravioli, la torta della nonna and my beautiful surprise of Tiramisu cake!! The cake was delizioso and a memory I will always treasure!!!! We hope to stay in your beautiful villa again sometime on future travels to peaceful Tuscany!

Molto fortuna to all of you and God Bless!

John, Teresa, Ava and Ana

Perfect family holiday spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 took over Mauro's villa for a wonderful week long reunion in June. The villa was perfect for our four families with great facilities to gather and to separate. The pool was always pristine and well attended. The pizza oven was a favorite feature. Do not miss the opportunity for a splendid meal featuring local dishes prepared by Mauro's very talented son with the support of Mauro and his wife. A true highlight! Once we found the villa and got the hang of remotely opening the gate and gunning our van up the driveway we found the villa conveniently located to enjoy day trips to Lake Trasimeno, Cortona, Sienna and Firenze.

!! Best place in Tuscany !!

  • 5 of 5

This is a unbelievable nice, beautiful and cultivated property !

The owner Mauro is the friendliest and attentive person you can desire...We had a great time there and were everyday amazed about the love the owner created his house, the terraces and the gardens.

The location is perfect to check the surroundings and the famous Tuscany citys. But it´s hard to detach the comfort of this house for a moment...

Thank you Mauro for everything, it was a great stay !!!

excelente estancia en la Villa de Mauro y familia

  • 5 of 5

Volveríamos otra vez a esta Villa, muy bien ubicada para realizar paseos a los pueblos cercanos, muy cómoda y bien equipada, todo era como lo vimos en las fotos. Pasamos unos días maravillosos junto a mi familia y amigos. Federico el hijo de Mauro, nos cocinó pizzas a la piedra realmente buenas. Muy agradecidos de la hospitalidad recibida por parte de Mauro y su familia. Las vistas desde la piscina, hacia la campiña italiana, realmente dejan sin aliento. Nos gustaría volver en otra oportunidad

Wonderful property, tranquil and accessible

  • 5 of 5

Just home from a wonderful stay at the beautiful Villa le Celle del Farinaio with 3 generations of our family. The villa is perfect, situated in the tranquil Tuscan countryside but in close reach of civilisation, enabling us to visit the local towns and to easily reach the more famous cities. The accommodation worked well for us as a group of grandparents and 2 families. Excellent facilities and made full use of the pool. Lovely woodland surroundings and beautiful gardens. The owner and his family are wonderful and go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. Thank you so much Mauro, Nevio and Gabriella xx

Absolutely the Most Perfect Place to Call Home

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a more perfect place to spend our week in Italy. The house was perfect for our group of 8 women with ages ranging from 56 to 84! It worked wonderfully for a home base to retreat from after a day of touring local towns. We got lost on the way there from Venice...but Mauro and his son, Fedrico saved the day by meeting us and showing us the way. They had a welcome home dinner waiting for us and it was so amazing and a blessing for us 8 very tired travelers. Marcos even started a wonderful fire for us to snuggle next to as we drank the bottle of wine they left. Then the next morning, Marcos brought fresh pastries for breakfast! OMG! The accomidations were better than expected. Great beds, great baths and an awesome view! We hired Fedrico - to be our Chef for 4 evening meals. Fedrico worked with our budget and created wonderful italian dishes. Those truly were the most appreciated and enjoyed evenings there. We had a couple days at the villa where we just stayed home and enjoyed the views & hiked up the mountain behind the villa to an awesome old church and met the neighbors. It is my plan to repeat this trip with couples next October... the weather is wonderful and not hot but just chilly enough to have a fire at night. Thank you Mauro and family. You will always be a part of our family....See you next October.
