SERIOUSLY, LOOK NO FURTHER

  • 5 of 5
This property was #2 on our list and unfortunately we were duped by the "#1" property owner. The pictures on the website were of other units, not the one we booked! After traveling for 24 hours with a toddler from Seattle, we just wanted a nice place to call home for our week in Tuscany.

We called Luca and fortunately I Girasoli was still available...and it was perfect! Not only was the listing accurate, clean and well-maintained, Luca and his wife Leticia went above and beyond to make our stay the best.

For example, my wife has some neck issues and needs very soft pillows. After the first night we asked Luca if they had any and he showed up later that afternoon with brand new pillows he bought for us.

We asked if he knew anyone who we could hire to babysit while our daughter slept (restaurants don't open until after he bedtime). Leticia offered to babysit which allowed us to have a couple romantic evenings out...and she wouldn't let us pay her.

Luca took us to his friend's winery for dinner and wine tasting. We received a private tour of the winery and had a private chef that cooked for the four of us. It was one of the best meals of my life, all the wine and grappa we could drink and left with memories of a lifetime.

Even Luca's mother (who lives in the far unit) was incredibly warm and welcoming. She gave us jam she made and even a farewell gift of a trinket made by handicap workers she volunteers with.

Lastly, the location of the villa is perfect for seeing all that Tuscany has to offer. We took day trips by car and cooked most of our meals at home. It was a little too cold to use the pool when we visited, but this is another huge plus.

If we ever come back to Italy we are definitely staying with Luca again. I cannot recommend his villas more highly.

Thanks Luca! Ciao for now!!!

WONDERFUL TUSCAN GETAWAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!! Not only we enjoyed a spectacular Tuscan villa for six months, but we also felt like home. The landlord's family made us feel like family. Warm, welcoming people that treated us like royalty. Nothing better than enjoying beautiful Tuscan views with great company, in a great place!!! I even learned how to make homemade pizza and pasta. Only 10-15 minutes away from Siena by car. We loved this place!!!

SEHR SCHÖNES ANWESEN MIT SUPER GASTGEBER

  • 5 of 5
Herrliche Ferien in super Wohnung mit bestem Komfort und schöner Lage mitten in der Landschaft. Einkaufen im nächsten Ort (1.5km) möglich. Der Gastgeber ist sehr aufmerksam und hilfsbereit in jeder Situation. Perfekte Ausstattung mit Pool und allem was dazu gehört. Alles in der Wohung war sauber, gepflegt und funktionierte. Garage für Auto konnte benutzt werden (perfekt bei der Sommerhitze). Siena und viele der schönsten Plätze in der Toskana befinden sich in der Nähe und sind mit dem Auto schnell zu erreichen. Restaurants in Siena und Umgebung in grosser Vielzahl vorhanden. Ein Objekt welches wir gerne wieder besuchen.

A COMPLETE TUSCAN EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Great, complete experience. We were looking for a location in the middle of the beautiful Tuscan landscape, with panoramic view, with traditional architecture but also comfort, including swimming pool and sufficient space for our teenagers. We found everything and even more. Luca Ierini is a great host and his wonderful presence has embellished our sojourn. He cooked for us the dinners, he accompanied us both to outlets and historical sites like San Gimignano or even vineyards for Chianti Classico/Reserva of Super Tuscan wine tasting and traditional accompanying food. The house was in perfect status, all amenities in perfect operational status, everything clean and demonstrating the know-how of hosting guests. The groundfloor contained a very generous living, with access to a beautiful terrace, while the kitchen was fully endowed for preparation of pretentious meals. The house is a former tobacco processing hall, transformed by the owner, with taste and precision. The location is perfect for being able to visit Sienna but also Montalcino, Montepulciano and other wonders of Tuscany, while still sleeping in the beautiful Tuscan landscape. We are proud of having built a friendship relationship with the owner and his wife - great people, great culture, great values - and we will definitely return to the location.

LIKE STAYING AT OUR ITALIAN FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
For our family with kids of age between 1 and 13 it was a wonderful experience at Lucas house. The stylish house and garden are caressed wonderfully and still provide a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. The warm welcome, the helpful tour guide attitude and great hospitality of the owner made our stay a great Tuscan experience. I can really recommend a stay!

FANTASTIC!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 6 nights and used this as a home base for day trips around Tuscany. It is about 10-15 minutes south of Siena and fairly close to a highway. We could not have had a better time. The unit was clean, spacious and well equipped; note it is not air conditioned but there are fans upstairs and even though it was a hot week we managed fine. It is out in the countryside among several other homes, which is exactly what we were looking for. The vistas are spectacular from both the windows and the pool area. The town of San Rocco I Pilli nearby is charming and has most of what one might need other than a large supermarket – we spent a lot of time in the very good pasticceria there before heading out each day. The pool is shared with the other unit which is not necessarily obvious from the listing but this was not an issue at all and we were in it a lot of the time. We have boys 11,9 and 6 and they loved it. Luca and his family could not have been better hosts – they really made us feel like their guests rather than visitors. He helped arrange a wine tasting and tour of several towns. Payment and check-in/out were smooth and easy, even though we arrived 90 minutes later than we had promised! If we come back to the area again we would certainly stay here, it really made our visit to Italy feel special.
