Mulino di Firenze: recapture the spirit of Malaparte's Tuscany

Just 20 minutes outside of the city, amidst the beautiful hills of Chianti, this old mill offers another form of Tuscan bliss.

Nestled between the Val de Pisa and the Arno Valley, this former mill built in 1330 retained its heavy beams, solid oak reservoirs, conducts to carry the river water, and most especially the agricultural soul of Tuscans. Enter the building and immediately travel back in time, in a rural country that saw the birth of Renaissance architecture. Mulino de Firenze invites all guests to roam the countryside, source of endless gustatory pleasures.

Only five kilometres separate Florence from this former mill, but it feels miles away from the city bustle. Housed in the ancient wheat barns, rooms and suites offer all modern comfort, topped with wrought-iron beds and lighting with bronze cherubs. Time stands still as you appreciate the delight of cool marble floors, unobstructed views of the surroundings and, last but not least, the restaurant's exceptional cuisine.
