Characterful converted mill in Tuscany, offering authentic cuisine, fine wines and Italian romance near Cortona - includes breakfast and restaurant
This quaint, beautifully converted mill bordering Tuscany and Umbria lies next to a gently babbling brook and positively spills over with romance and charm itself. With their local artefacts, antiques and quirky touches, each of Locanda del Molino's eight bedrooms ooze character. Proprietors Silvia and Riccardo Baracchi also own the renowned Relais & Chateaux Il Falconiere in nearby Cortona, so standards are reassuringly high.
Attractions include a delightful outdoor swimming pool with a historic feel and rural setting. The restaurant is favoured by locals, a recommendation in itself. With its huge fireplace and authentic copper pots hanging on the walls, you can imagine you’re in a real Italian dining room. Learn to cook like a true Italian mamma and enrol in a cooking class.
This is truly an ideal spot to immerse yourself in Tuscany's fabled art, culture, cuisine and wines.
