We could not have been more fortunate in selecting Villa Maria as the facility for our home during our Italy retreat.

Where do you begin in describing how great a location and facility Villa Maria offered to our group of twelve. The entire Villa was beautiful, clean, comfortable and accomodating for all of us.

When you look at the pictures of Villa Maria, what you can't see are the sounds and views of the sunrise and sunsets over the valley and adjacent mountain range. The Villa is so accomodating for relaxing inside in the living room, outside at the covered patio table or down by the pool.
The Villa was always comfortably cool, like being airconditioned, even though it was not airconditioned.
The Villa enticed one into complete relaxation. Given our limited time in Italy, we seemed to always be on the go, however, when we arrived back at the Villa we were ready to relax and enjoy the accomodations.

We had Donato cook three different evenings and the meals were always excellent. We ate out at several restaurants in the area that were all excellent. I wonder when you are in such a great location, can you really find anything not perfect?

Marco and Serena were very accomodating and great to deal with. Marco went out of his way to provide recommendations regarding dining out and suggestions regarding the surrounding area. Many thanks to Marco and Serena for making this great estate available for our vacation.

The initial directions to Villa Maria created some challenge in finding Villa Maria, however, once we became acquainted with the area, getting to surrounding towns by car or train was convenient. Driving at night was not so bad because you had the headlights that let one see the oncoming traffic or close roadside walls. Once we were accustomed to the tight driving roads of Italy, driving became more of an adventure.

LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
WOW! The pictures do not do this property justice... it is beyond spectacular. We were a family of 14, 5 kids under 12, teenager, 2 families, one couple without kids and 2 very young grandparents. Ages 4-60. It was the perfect home for all of us.

First, Marco is fantastic to deal with.Very helpful and even though he was on a family vacation, called us twice to ensure that we were ok and we had everything we needed. The GPS coordinates he provides are perfect... be sure to use them to find the house.

Second, Nicola and Antonio are amazing. Antonio works so well taking care of the house. He had the extra bed we needed ready right away, 2 extra room fans for the ladies who could feel the heat. He does not speak English but he finds a way to help you.
Nicola was there to orient us with the house, the standards for housekeeping is top notch.

Location- just down the drive way is your local market, bakery & butcher. The bakery & market are family owned and they could not do enough to help us. Mornng cappucinos & bombolinis- we will never forget. We were addicted.
The house is 10 minutes from the train station, and 25 min to Florence. The house is not as close to the other key Tuscan towns (for travelling with kids), but we really used this week to relax and focus on Florence. Most towns are 1 hour to 1.5 hour drive. Very easy drives, but not close. We did not mind as young kids are not interested in too many Tuscan towns. One or two of towns, Florence, and then we headed to Rome when our week here was over. For adults... we would love to go back with 3 other couples. We never felt that there were 14 of us in this house, it is so well planned.
Sitting on the terrace overlooking the pool drinking Chianti wine while the kids were playing tennis constantly in the court behind the house... it is the great memory we all keep holding on to.
Donato, the chef was hired to cook on the Friday night prior to departure. AMAZING! I wish we would have booked him earlier in the trip as there were so many left overs- Antonio was the lucky recipient.

Thank you Marco for this unbelievable home for our family trip. We hope to return one day.

THE BEST VACATION

  • 5 of 5
From start to finish this was the right choice for us. We were a group of 10 people (5 couples) who are all colleagues from various Universities around the world. We began the selection process in September/October of 2012 and narrowed it down to Villa Maria based on photos, guest comments, and Marco's amazing ability to respond quickly to questions.

Marco promised Villa Maria was actually better than the pictures shown on the website. He was telling the truth. Once you arrive you feel like this beautiful villa was yours for the week. Marco continued to be responsive and helpful throughout. He was on site several times to be sure things were going well. Miranda, Marco's villa caretaker, was there for any issues daily we might have had (which were very minimal). The pool was fantastic, the view was better than fantastic. My wife and I agree that for us it was the best vacation we have ever spent.

Donato cooked for the the group the first night and it was specatucular. From anti-pasta through cleanup the entire group simply could relax and enjoy. All of the work was done by Donato.

We spent each day as individual vacations for each couple. Sometimes joining up for a group activity, sometimes going off on our own. Each evening we would regroup over a shared meal at the villa and retell our adventures.

Truly this was a magnificent vacation and we feel so lucky to have connected with Marco!

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
We had twelve adults from two families, many on thier first trip to Italy- Villa Maria could not have been more perfect. Serena and Marco were a pleasure to deal with and Morando was so helpful (despite the language barrier)- he even volunteered to pick up two members of our group from the train station and show us around the town.

The villa itself is almost exactly as it appears in the pictures just more beautiful in person. It was spotlessly clean, well appointed, and allowed everyone in the group to have some privacy while still enjoying the space together. The pool is fantastic and the views are outstanding.

The villa is a little tricky to find initially but that's part of the charm. Florene is an easy train ride or drive away and there are great outlet stores, winerys and countless other activities nearby.

Overall I would not hesitate in recommending this villa, it was simply perfect in every way and I hope I'll be able to return someday!

WONDERFUL TUSCAN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a week's stay at Villa Maria and it exceeded my expectations in all respects. We were a group of 9 (2 families with a total of 5 teenagers) and the villa provided ample space for us all to relax together without stepping on each other's toes. The villa is exactly as pictured on the site. The pool is beautiful and the outdoor bathroom/shower was perfect. The tennis court was beautifully maintained. The house remained cool even through the hot July days and we were never uncomfortable at night. Morando took wonderful care of us and our first night's dinner by Donato was a highlight. As other reviewers have noted, the villa is so nice that it's hard to leave to see the other wonderful sites of Tuscany. We'll have to come back for another trip to see the rest!

A MAGICAL PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Villa Maria in Fronzano is even better in reality than it looks on the internet. The views are stunning and the facilities perfect. The villa itself is spacious and elegantly furnished. It comfortably accomodated our 3 families and we particularly liked how much crockery was in the kitchen as it mean't we didn't run out of anything. We also loved being able to engage a fabulous local chef for a couple of meals.
Throwing open the bedroom shutters each morning was an absolute treat - what a view! -and we loved being able to walk into the local village to buy whatever goodies we required.
The property was immaculately maintained and the caretaker was available to attend to any requests we had. He didn't speak English and we didn't speak Italian but we all had a lot of fun working out how to communicate with each other. Our families loved using the pool and tennis court every day. In fact it was hard to drag ourselves away from the property to discover Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano, Cortona etc. Naturally we loved those places when we got there.We also enjoyed a trip up into the hills behind the villa.
We very much hope to return to the villa one day and would certainly recommend it to others - in fact we've been doing that regularly since our return home. You will not be disappointed if you choose to have a magical holiday at Villa Maria in Fronzano.
