A lot of space is required to do justice to the history of Pian dei Mucinis, however we will give you a concise version with all the important bits! Its history is rich and dates back to the 800's when it operated as a farm.
The following centuries saw the addition of several out buildings, and then a church was built in the area. In 1900 when the owner died, the estate was transferred into a summer camp centre for orphans. In the early 1900's it was acquired by a major holiday resort chain and operated this way for some years, until in 2013 when new owners took it over and gave it a thorough restoration and expansion. Now it is a very appealing place for a memorable holiday in historic Tuscany.

The estate consists of many different buildings that are scattered around a large area offering accommodation in both hotel and apartments.
