Stunning Villa near Poppi

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Villa Emma - it was just as advertised. There is a fantastic view down the valley from the many sun loungers around the pool. The villa has been furnished to a very high standard with plenty of room for adults and children not to feel on top of one another. There are two large living rooms providing plenty of space and the kitchen has a dining table to seat 12 comfortably. Cooking facilities are excellent with a large American style fridge freezer so that you can stock up and not even leave the villa during your stay if you want to be away from it all.

We were met by Sergio who provided all the information about the facilities and the area and when we needed his assistance even for a very minor thing he was with us within a half hour. We were in the villa for two weeks and bed linen, towels etc were changed after one week and the kitchen cleaned again.

The small town of Talla is close by and has everything we needed including a small Spar with local cheese and wine.

I would highly recommend the villa to my friends and family and hope to return again next year.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This property really is what is says on the tin. We were met by Sergio, who ran through everything we would need to know whilst we were there. The house is very spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for everyone and sunbeds galore. The location is so peaceful, with lovely views and complete privacy.

Don't miss a trip to the wood-fired pizza restaurant at Pontenano, good value for money. Take a trip late afternoon to Bar Edi in Bibbiena for gelato with the locals in the shade of the trees in the square.

Visit and prepare to relax, you'll find it easy once you are here!

Magnificent Villa in the Hills of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa for a week in July 2012, and had a wonderful stay. There is really nothing to point your finger at. From home we communicated efficiently via email with the owners and when we arrived we were welcomed by Sergio who took good care of us during the stay; gave an introduction to the facilities of the villa and answered our request for advice concerning shopping, dining, sightseeing etc. Our arrival was during the day of the Casentino rally, which is right in front of the villa. Sergio made sure we arrived before the road was closed and gave us the opportunity to watch this spectacular event. We were three families there and ended up spending the entirely week around the pool (weather was perfect). The view from the pool area is stunning. After sunset, we enjoyed the evenings outside with candle lights on the table. The house itself is spacious and well refurbished; it is really what we think of as a typical Tuscan Villa. About 2 miles from the Villa you will find the village of Talla, this has all you need: grocery, pizzeria and a coffee bar. We would definitely recommend this place for a quiet vacation in Tuscany.

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is stunning – an old stone house which has been completely refurbished and now represents state of the art in every way. There is able room for staying two families together or inviting friends over. We came with plans of sight-seeing in Tuscany but ended up staying in the house almost all week, because it was such a wonderful and quiet place where everybody – parents and kids, teenagers and young ones – enjoyed themselves. The service was impeccable; Sergio and his sweet parents took immediately care of your every need.

The surroundings are wonderful. Everyday grocery shopping can be done in Talla, the local village, but if you want to shop for gourmet dinner, you need to go the hypermarket Coop in Arezzo where you will find everything imaginable.

I have recommended the house to friends and family and plan to come back next year.

Beautiful,quiet location with spectacular views. The villa is very comfortably and attractively furnished and the bathroom facilities are superb.

The owners provided excellent customer service, responding immediately by email or 'phone to any questions we had and their agent in Italy spoke perfect English and was extremely helpful. He also gave us some good ideas for places to visit.

We enjoyed visits to Cortona, Poppi, Siena, Arezzo and had some lovely walks through the woods surrounding the Villa. The swimming pool was very popular, especially with the children/teenagers.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends or relatives.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We were among the first to enjoy this magnificent villa. The description of the property is accurate – the location is breathtaking on a side of a wooded hill, with wonderful views of the valley bellow and the surrounding hills. The rooms are large and comfortable with spacious attached bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances, yet is carefully designed with a rustic look, and has a large dining table in it to accommodate 12. The local person representing the owners speaks fluent English, is kind and helpful, and can provide excellent information on the area. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience and we highly recommend this property.
