We recently did another trip to Italy for business and decided while there to take a bit of a break to enjoy parts of Italy we'd not visited as well as go back to cities we hade such as Florence.
Having just left the insanity of Venice and before that Rimini it was a very pleasant break to get just outside the main city limits in the quiet setting where Mulino di Firenze is located.
While admittedly our room size wise reminded me of being in Japan or Hong Kong it was more than made up for when we opened the double doors to a little green area that overlooked the Arno ands surrounding countryside. Each morning there we were treated with beautiful sunrises just before us as the peaked in over the nearby hills with moments akin to those seen and memorialized in the great paintings of Italy, all while looking a the flowing Arno. Nice
The hotel while still being renovated in areas away from the main house is quite comfortable, with pool, sauna and a nice restaurant within. We ate there 3 nights in a row with no complaints from either my wife and I. For those wishing to take a it of a stroll there is a small village not far down the road (about 15 minute walk) that has two small restaurants if you'd like a little something different.
They have a shuttle that will take you into town that drops people off not far from the main sites and picks up 4 times later in the day. All quite convenient and all quite comfortable.
The thing about the property is it is about 5km outside city center and for those looking for hustle bustle of night life/ our generally wish to be in a very crowded city, this isn't the place for you. For those wanting to enjoy Florence without the insanity all the time of being in a highly travelled tourist center in the evening- this is the place.
If we were to go back to Florence we'd not hesitate to stay there again. Staff all were wonderful and special thanks to Aldo who checked us in and made sure we were situated and provided with all we needed.
