Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a great two weeks in your apartment. This place is wonderful. We made many day trips to near towns, for example Siena, Montepulicano, Pisa, Lucca San Gimignano and Monteriggioni. One day drove to see Terme di Petriolo, the natural thermal baths. The place was too rough for our 1 yhear old girl we think so we drove to Terme Antica Quericoliaia which was lovely place to swim.

One evening Anna came to cook us Neapolitan fish meal. Meal was very good and Anna was great. We didn't understand almost anything she was trying to tell us because she didn't speak English and we didn't speak Italian but it didn't stop her from talking. That evening was unforgettable. We did get very good food at Restaurant Il Locale di Guido in Taverne D'arbia. We have seen so much within these weeks it has been an unforgettable holiday. Thanks for everything. Majji Antti, Oliva and grandmom from Finland.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

Some places never live up to the expectation, you have done well it is a wonderful hospitable place. We had a great time - very relaxing and energising. Thanks again for a really great time - we will certainly recommend it to our firens in South Africa and the UK. Gillman family, South Africa.

Thank you, your house is a haven. Mark & Karen McCallum, NSW Australia

We had an amazing week seeing some of the sights of Tuscany but were always delighted to return to such a beautiful, tranquil place, it is truly heavenly here and we'll recommended it to everyone. Edwards family, Vevy, Switzerland.

The most lovely, welcoming place. Perfect location, amazing views, beautifully and thoughtfully put together. Kate Butler, Oxford. U.K.

A delightful surprise, a tonic for the city weary. Your recommended trails were most scenic, sweeping vistas and hedgerow flowers encouraged walks of several hours. Kath & Barry Landell, Wester USA

Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5
It was love at first sight! The location could not be better. Close to the amazing Siena, ( less than 20 minutes away) yet in the heart of rural Tuscany. The space was amazing, with breathtaking views from every lovely window and the glass door. The villa was so tastefully and comfortably furnished it seemed to honour the Tuscan landscape.

We enjoyed the fire place, the sound of frogs, the hiking right from the Villa and the lovely olive trees and lavendar garden. Next visit, I would book more than a week at you place and maybe try to come when the pool is in use, as that looks like a great place to hang out too! The downside is it was hard to leave to leave the villa to go explore Tuscany. We needed another week just to soak in the place. I would recommend you place for artists, writers, lovers of nature. It is a very creative atmosphere.

Our only sadness is that we missed a good visit with you, we feel we would have had a lot in common.

A charming property

  • 5 of 5
We have spent a lovely week in this magical place. We all loved waking up to those splendid views of the gentle rolling hills of Sienna, the sounds of the bumblebees and the smell of lavender in the garden. We have taken so many pictures which I will treasure forever.
The apartment is in a beautiful location which is very secluded. The only downside is that it is a bit far from major cities such as Florence, Pisa and the beautiful marble quarries of Carrara so you need to decide whether you prefer the seclusion and the picture postcard views or to be closer to the major sites otherwise you will end up doing more driving than you might wish and with so many wines to stop and taste, driving back could be a problem. A car is a must to stay in this apartment. You also need to make sure you do all your research before you come out as there is no wifi at the apartment or anywhere close to the apartment. Carmela maybe it would be a good idea to get this installed as I am sure most people today wouldn’t mind paying a little extra for the privilege when you are so far off from anywhere. Off course some people actually prefer to be without wifi while on holiday.

Chianti is about an hour away and we spent a great evening at Vignamaggio winetasting and having a sunset dinner amongst the beautiful scenery of the vines and olive trees. We were also lucky to attend the Palio races in the city of Sienna. Its was very exciting to watch. San Gimingnano is a pretty town which is also a must see.

Carmela you have done a great job in restoring this place. We loved the furniture and the interior and as you rightfully said there is no need to have pictures on the walls as the windows give such great views. Sunset is the best part of the day sitting on top of the stairs to the apartment watching the beautiful glow over the hills and watching the tractor harvesting the “fields of gold”. Dining outside in the garden every evening was also a great treat. We would not hesitate to come again to this place and now that we have visited all the major sites of Tuscany, it means more time to spend next to the pool.

Heavenly Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely wonderful. The apartment is fantastic and really well equipped with everything we needed. Loved sitting outside and enjoying some Italian wine amongst the lavender and incredible views of the Tuscan countryside. So peaceful. Did lots of day trips and Sienna only 15k away. Best local town was Asciano which we only visited on last day - great feel and nice variety of shops, cafes, restaurants. Our 4yr old son loved swimming every day - weather was a bit cold for me to swim! Running through the tuscan farm country was great way to start the day. Tuscan food delicious. Loved the pizza, pasta and gelato. Thanks Carmelina.
