What Past Guests Are Saying
A simply stunning Tuscan farmhouse
Quite simply the most amazing villa.
We stayed at Molbena (as a group of six adults) for two weeks in mid September 2012 & cannot recommend this property highly enough. The photos both on here (Tripadvisor) & on the owner’s own website look fantastic, but believe me, the reality is way, way better.
Firstly let me say that everything about the booking etc was handled superbly with any emails or queries responded to very promptly by Francesco.
Flying into Pisa & then having driven down to Cortona, we were met by one of the family who escorted us the last part of the way to the house itself. Once through the electric security gates, the road to the house is then a five minute steep, hairpin, loose stone track through the woods. A word of warning here: don’t even bother with second gear unless you are in a 4x4…..you will stall!!! The drive though is more than rewarded when the house finally comes into view. A beautiful, typically Tuscan, stone farmhouse with stunning panoramic views across the valley & beyond.
Inside, the house has absolutely everything you could wish for. The bedrooms are absolutely massive, the bathrooms (each room has it’s own ensuite) are modern & spotless & there are any number of huge rooms downstairs that we simply never used. The well laid out large kitchen, the superb outdoor barbecue area & probably the biggest outdoor dining table you will ever see were all that was needed.
Mornings (or sometimes full days) were spent exploring the many stunning places within easy reach of this superbly located villa. Siena, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Assisi, Gubbio, Pierle (a little unknown gem of a village only ten minutes down the valley) & of course just wandering the steep streets of Cortona itself, followed by lazy afternoons soaking up the hot Tuscan sun next to the verging on Olympic size swimming pool…even if the water was maybe a little cold! Evenings were simply fabulous: a barbecue, plenty of very good local red wine, a sunset each evening that simply took your breath away with the intensity of it’s colours, a view to die for of the twinkling lights way off in the valley below & the nightly ritual of the wild boar coming down from the hills to feast on the over-ripe figs, pomegranates & apples that we scattered for them only feet from where we sat.
This was our second visit to this area, but our first at Molbena. All I can say is we cannot wait to stay here again.
Many thanks again to Francesco & all of the Della Rosa family for making us so welcome. We will be back!
