I can't recommend Casina de Mugello enough! Our stay there right from the start was great. We had a very nice welcome by Romanella (a really lovely person) who showed us around and gave us lots of advice. The apartment is very rustic and you really feel that you're in Tuscany. The apartment has everything you could possibly need and then more, nothing has been forgotten. In fact the place was so nice, the fact there is no internet connection is more of a bonus than a hardship. It's also perfectly situated in regards to travelling around the area. I have stayed in lots of good small self catered apartments, but this one was by far the best. We would've liked to have stayed much longer. I don't really like going back to stay at the same place twice, but here I would make an exception!! Just great!!!
Me and my girlfriend stayed here for the MotoGP 2014 Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, this lovely little place is situated down the end of a steep little private road with its own private electric gate! A car here is a must, we rented from Hertz in Pisa and had a great experience. Using a satnav it only took 15 minutes to get to Mugello and it sent us through some back roads that were completely traffic free! Fiesole is only 20 minutes down the road with Florence just another 15 minutes (35 minutes).
The Casina is a very welcoming, charming house joined onto the owners husbands house. Across the way are the neighbours in an equally attractive house, you wouldn't realise anyone else was around, the location is silent! The size was perfect for the two of us with the pictures Romanella has provided, we got exactly what we were expecting! The bed was comfortable and the kitchen/bathroom again perfect for the two of us. Romanella was lovely and very welcoming and was only ever a phone call away if we needed anything as she lives only a few minutes up the road in the village (Polcanto). The only minor negative was that the temperature of the shower had a tendency to fluctuate but to be expected with the age of the property I suppose, it wouldn't of been that much of a problem had I not let myself get burnt in the Tuscan heat!
Can't believe this place isn't booked up every year for the MotoGP as we found it amazing and at such a great price, perhaps I shouldn't leave this review and keep it a secret!
