PICTURESQUE SETTING AND CHARMING OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5
Three of us spent a terrific week at this remarkable property. The villa was spacious, comfortable and equipped with modern amenities. A great getaway, with wonderful alfresco dining, the setting is drop-dead gorgeous, with views of nearby villages within 20-30 minutes walking distance. Having spent the first three days of our stay in bustling Rome, we found this villa to be an ideal location for exploring the Tuscany region. David and Karen were remarkable hosts, escorting us on a day trip to nearby Montalcino to visit local wineries. We couldn't have had a better time!

Owner's Response: Stephanie, Kevin and Chuck were wonderful guests who made the most of their time in Tuscany. Not only did they enjoy all the features that Tuscany has to offer, they also appeared to like their quiet time spent in the Villa when they were not out and about. They would be most welcome to return anytime. David & Karen

TUSCANY VILLA, A MUST!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely time our group of six friends had in Tuscany. The Villa Pancole is a stunning home! The rooms are very spacious, beautifully furnished and have scenic views from their window. We first drove into the nearby town to get groceries for the many delicious meals we cooked. The kitchen has everything you may need to prepare a gourmet meal. The first night we made spaghetti with the items in our welcome basket, thank you! Every night we retired to the living room to enjoy a warm fire and talk about our daily activities and plan the following day. David and Karen have a notebook filled with suggestions for dining, wine tasting, daily excursions and more. Our favorite day trip was a drive to Cinque Terra. Our favorite wine tasting experience was with the local wineries, take your pick, they are all amazing! Our weather wasn't the best, but it didn't keep us from sitting out on the veranda and taking in the amazing view of the Tuscan hills and olive groves. Thank you David and Karen for a memorable stay at your villa, it was our first visit but not our last.

TRAUMHAUS - TRAUMLAGE

  • 5 of 5
Zwei wunderschöne Wochen haben wir in der Villa Capella di Pancole verbracht.

Die Lage der Villa ist einfach außergewöhnlich schön. Sie liegt sehr ruhig auf einer Anhöhe und man hat eine unglaubliche Weitsicht auf die Hügel, typischen toskanischen Zypressen, Olivenbäume und einigen wenigen toskanischen Häusern.

Der Pool ist mit einer Länge von 19 Metern sehr groß, so dass man einige Bahnen darin schwimmen kann. Einige Stufen führen in den Anfangs flachen Bereich, der aber später tiefer wird. Der Pool wird regelmäßig gesäubert und liegt umringt von einigen Olivenbäumen. Auch hier ist die Aussicht fantastisch.

Die Terrasse ist großzügig gestaltet und führt ums ganze Haus. Der Garten ist wunderschön toskanisch angelegt und sehr gepflegt.

Das Haus hat eine hochwertige Ausstattung und die Zimmer wurden durchdacht gebaut. Alle Angaben, die von den Vermietern zur Villa gemacht wurden, sind korrekt bzw. wurden übertroffen. So sind z. B. im gesamten Haus Fliegengitter angebracht. Wir waren sehr dankbar darüber.


Die Vermieter Karen und David sind liebenswürdig, ausgesprochen freundlich aber dennoch zurückhaltend und auf die Privatsphäre der Mieter bedacht.

Die Villa ist ein absoluter Glückstreffer und zu 100% weiterzuempfehlen. Hier stimmt einfach alles. Siena ist in 30 Minuten zu erreichen. Arezzo, Florenz und San Gimignano in weniger als 1 Stunde. Im Ort Castelnuovo Berardegna gibt es sehr gute Lokale und eine tolle Eisdiele.

Vielen lieben an Karen und David für eure tolle Gastfreundschaft, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Liebe Grüße aus Hünxe

Owner's Response: Bettina, Markus und Familie machte das Beste aus ihrer 2-wöchigen Urlaub in Cappella di Pancole. Nicht nur, dass sie auf der Terrasse der Villa entspannen und schwimmen im Pool, variiert sie ihre Aktivitäten, indem sie Ausflüge zu einigen der nahe gelegenen historischen Städten sowie Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in den Verkaufsstellen Kleidung. Es war ein Vergnügen, mit ihnen in unserer Villa zu bleiben. Karen & David

WANT TO KEEP THIS PLACE TO OURSELVES, BUT IT'S TOO NICE NOT TO SHARE.

Want to keep this place to ourselves, but it's too nice not to share.
  • 5 of 5
We stayed here this past March/early April with our family of six and just loved this place. It is located on a gorgeous estate with the views you see in coffee table books. We spent every meal outside that we could and usually ended the meal by all of us turning our chairs and just soaking in the view. Each morning my husband and I would take a walk and around each corner it was more breathtaking. My husband and son took advantage of the bikes and did a tour around the whole estate one afternoon. This adventure was definitely a highlight for our 12-year old son. The house itself is well furnished and very comfortable. During the daylight, we were outside taking in the scenery; at night, we were inside by the fireplace enjoying the coziness. The welcome basket is SO appreciated when you arrive on a Saturday night. The hosts are helpful without being overbearing. David went so far as to help the airline locate us after they lost my luggage. Of particular help is the book David & Karen put together inside to show you restaurants and activities in the area. The home is located within easy distance of so many beautiful side-trips. Castelnuovo Berardenga is a nice little town with very friendly people, two great coffee bars, the 2nd best geletaria in Tuscany (trust me, with four kids, we were "forced" to try a lot of gelato), a grocery store with some very helpful people and a restaurant (La Locanda di Tommaso) that we all still talk about. It seemed like every town or village in the area has a gem in it. Our biggest hurdle each day to going sightseeing was trying to get everyone to leave this place. Although I hate to "share" this place, I know how much I appreciate others' reviews, so I guess I need to do the same. Hope you have the opportunity to take in the serenity of Tuscany in this home!

SEHR SCHÖNE VILLA

  • 5 of 5
Wir hatten zwei wunderschöne Wochen in der Villa Capella di Pancole.
Die Anfahrt führt über eine ca. 4km lange Schotterstraße zum Haus in das Arceno Gebiet.
Die Lage der Villa ist einfach perfekt. Sie liegt ruhig gelegen auf einer Anhöhe, mit einer tollen Rundumsicht auf einem traumhaft schönen Anwesen.

Der Pool so wie die Gartenanlage ist einfach wunderschön angelegt und sehr gepflegt. Das Haus hat eine hochwertige Ausstattung die in einem sehr guten Zustand ist. Die Angaben zur Villa in der Homepage wurden übertroffen.

Des Weiteren haben die Vermieter alle wichtigen Informationen für das Haus und für die Umgebung in einen großen verständlichen Ordner zusammengestellt. Sehr hilfreich.

Die sehr freundlichen Vermieter Karen und David sind zurückhaltend, stehen aber zu jeder Zeit bei Fragen oder Wünschen zur Verfügung.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Villa zu 100% weiterempfehlen.
Viele liebe Grüße an Karen und David aus Stuttgart

WONDERFUL SPOT

  • 5 of 5
David and Karen have created a wonderful rental villa in an idyllic spot. The location of the Villa (within an estate) provides sweeping views and an air of peacefulness only dreamed about by most city dwellers.
The property is extremely well equipped for renters, we know this because we have stayed in over 10 other villa's like this across Europe and this is by far the best equipped. The other great feature is that the owners are on site (they live next door). I have found that we a property is managed by the owners as opposed to a letting agency the presentation of the properties, amenities, and assistance when required is much better.
The welcome pack, of wine, pasta, tomatoes, olive oil etc is enough to get you through your first night which is much appreciated. We have stayed in places that don't even have any salt.
They were fabulous hosts to us, providing guidance when required but not in your face.
I thoroughly recommended staying here.
