About The Owner

We are Silvia and Stefano

We live with our baby Andrea in on apartment of the villa , wich has owner garden and private entry .

We bought the villa Giardo 3 years after filming the whole Tuscany fascinated by this beautiful region. We are dedicated full time to renovate the villa and fix the park.We finished the work in the spring of 2009.

Here was born our small, sympathetic Andrew, who made even more magical whole.

We are glad to realize a dream and after all the frenzy (we own a restaurant) we are finally in a place where time has stood still.

'Harmony' seems a word that embodies what we think we have found here.

'Harmony' because everything is related: people, nature, animals, colors, scents.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Why The Owner chose Panzano in Chianti

For us it was a choice experience to banish from our lives the frenzy and chaos. Beyond that Villa Giardo is a bit of history, culture, tradition to live every day with the option to be 15/30 minutes to cities such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm writing to you today to Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and sharing your gorgeous villa with us.

You made us feel so welcome and cared for.

You both can be so proud of your beautiful place and all of us had an amazing time, despite the weather.

The meals you prepared for us were truly fantastico in taste and presentation.

And we never even knew you all were around since you were so discreet.



I hope you and your little Andrea feel better now:)



Depending on the next group we sign up, we will come back and I will be in touch.



All the best and Ciao from

Elke & Russ

Spectacular Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5
Having been to Italy for several tours, five couples (cousins) rented Villa Giardo for two weeks this past October. We wanted a different kind of vacation, slower paced, with time to savor the area. The villa had been recommended to us by friends who had been there the previous year so we knew we were in for a treat. It exceeded our expectations. The view from the stone terrace was magnificent & much time was spent sitting there with a glass of chianti wine. We had rented a car in Rome and drove to Figline & found the road to Greve & thereafter used Silvia's very helpful directions (with photos)to find the villa. (A GPS becomes useless after you get on the roads nearer the villa). The dirt road the last few miles to the villa is bumpy and the driveway at the house is a bit steep but a fun challenge! The villa interior is spacious & spectacular...a combination of rustic and elegant with crystal chandeliers and a stone fireplace. 4 of the 5 bedrooms have queen or king beds with bathrooms. One upstairs room has 2 twin beds and a half bath nearby). The owners, Silvia & Stefano, live at the end of the villa in their own apartment so they are close by if you have a question for them; yet you never see them at your end of the villa. It was the perfect combination of privacy & assistance in case you had a question about a restaurant or directions. They are wonderful people who love sharing this beautiful property with others..we cannot say enough about them and their darling son! Our routine was to take leisurely day trips by car, to Greve, to Radda, to San Gimignano, wander around the town or market day kiosks, find a restaurant & have a fabulous mid day meal (seafood pasta & cinghali (boar stew) are not to be missed! Then back at the villa by night, we would play cards, sit on the terrace, & make our own light dinner. We went by train to Florence for a day (parking in Figline) and took a high speed train to Venice for an overnight trip during our 2 weeks there. We all said this was the best trip any of us have ever taken to Italy. The weather was lovely during our stay. We were lucky enough to see and hear wild boar several times. We felt like real Tuscans by the time we left, having made friends with several local merchants in Greve (the wine store) & several restaurant owners who were so friendly when we returned again. It was truly the trip of a lifetime for those who want to experience the heart and soul of Italy which is found in Tuscany.

Wonderful villa, lovely views and best meal!

  • 5 of 5
We spent one week at villa Giardo in June. We just loved the ambiance, Silvia and Stefano have created a beautiful oasis in Tuscany. All the photos and descriptions don't do the villa justice. The last half mile of driving is not for the faint of heart, but worth it! Plus, we saw cinghale (wild boar) mamas and babies twice at night on our way home! By all means see if Silvia and Stefano can fix you a dinner, it was one of our our best meals in Italy. They also can send you to restaurants all over the place, and did not steer us wrong once! We sure hope to be able to come back - and Mille Grazie Silvia and Stefano, it was such a great anniversary week for us and our kids!

Great family reunion

  • 5 of 5
At our 3rd stay in Tuscany we found this wonderful place. Eight adults and four children and no congestion at all. All families could have their privacy and come together at the pool, in the kitchen and at the great terasse table. It is almost a must to arrive in own or rented car, using a GPS or the most recent updated pictorial guidance. Plenty of playing tools for children. Bikes are available but hard to use in the closest dirt road. House was well equipped and we lacked only a few kitchen tools ( garlic crusher, whip for whipping cream/omelette). House wine and olive oil available at
self cost. No local shop for bread, groceries etc, but necessary to go some 20 km to Coop supermarket.
Excellent small family restaurants available nearby plus the great kindness of Silva to arrange a super Italian dinner in the villa. Best we have eaten so far in Tuscany.
Only minus we experienced was:
Many small ants in the kitchen area.
Slightly cool pool water (22C).

This was paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our entire adult family, consisting of three couples rented Il Giardo for a week. The pictures on the website do not do the place justice. The villa accommodated us all extremely well and our hosts were so helpful as well. Each bedroom has it's own full bathroom. Additionally there are multiple places for people to sit, congregate, read. And eat. The grounds are simply stunning and beautifully kept. The owner, Silvia, will arrange to cook dinner for guests if it is arranged ahead of time. We did this and the five course meal with wines and digestifs was simply wonderful and prepared with great care. Additionally, the villa is decorated with great care and attention to detail. I simply can't imagine a more wonderful place for a family vacation.

Heaven in Chianti

  • 5 of 5
Villa Giardo is one of the unusual places where the reality is even more splendid than the website photos and description. The views of Tuscan hills, vineyards and olive groves from the villa's hilltop terrace are unforgettable. The accommodations are more than ample and the furnishings are very attractive and comfortable. Silvia and Stefano are wonderful hosts - attentive and helpful with excellent recommendations of local restaurants and sights, and available to address any question or problem, but very careful not to be intrusive. We had Silvia prepare a dinner for us (7 adults) that was a true feast - the best meal we had in Italy.
Like Heaven, Villa Giardo is challenging to get to the first time, Your GPS will take you only so far. It's advisable to call Silvia when you reach the La Piscina cut off from the road to Lucolena to have Stefano come and guide you in. Watch for the sign on the left as you approach Lucolena from the south. Once you know the way, it's no problem.
