Absolutely excellent! The standard of build, the facilities and the location were lovely. The design layout of the units ensured total privacy so that we were never aware or disturbed by our neighbours. The grounds were lovely with lots of different plants which encouraged wildlife and were well looked after. The views were just spectacular!

Scorpione Review

  • 5 of 5
Lovely apartment, well equipped and very clean.
Excellent views from balcony
Good customer service from all persons concerned with property and good advice regarding places to visit and eat out.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone.
Very picturesque hill towns to visit like stepping on to the set of Romeo and Juliet.
San Sano very pretty village with good eating although not the cheapest but its Tuscany after all.
Good walks on the doorstep and wild life watching from the balcony.

The Perfect Holiday - Scorpione - Chianti, Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Tuscany staying at Scorpione last summer. The villa was charming with a fabulous view of the Chianti region which took our breaths away. We spent all our time on the balcony (when we were at the villa, that is) and the rest of the time, we were either exploring - visiting Siena - where we witnessed the joys of the Paglio or at the pool which was really well maintained big enough for swimming as well as splashing around. We also visited Florence- which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

We were well furnished with lots of details about what to do around the immediate area and visited a wonderful restaurant called Malborghetto in Lecchi which was a family run restaurant with some of the tastiest dishes we have ever sampled.

The instruction booklet also gave us directions to a local Prada outlet which we visited and dented our credit cards - so we really did feel we had a little of everything - modern and traditional culture, relaxation and a truly gourmet experience.

If there is one overriding memory for me, it will be the views - from the villa and from a wonderful pizzeria not far from the villa.

Our stay in Scorpione will stay with me forever.
