vacation was absolutely the best

  • 5 of 5
From the warm welcome by Letezia to the beautiful home, we felt at once we had found heaven. It is located in a perfect area for exploring the Tuscany, Chianti, and Umbria areas. Luca was a perfect host, even cooking and giving lessons on food as well. Thanks also to Letezia for the winery tour, and to Mamma for the bella frutta e vedure! And we can't forget William who made us laugh! Grazie a mille to all! We want to return soon. This is 5 stars for sure!

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish!

  • 5 of 5
I know I am reluctant to leave a review and I'm sure others are too! Why? We want to be able to book again and if everyone knows how great this place is it'll be permanently booked up!!!! It is simply wonderful - property, location, views, fresh fruit from the garden, food, company, Limoncello (!). Luca and his whole family couldn't have been more welcoming - they provided food, beer and homemade pasta sauce on arrival as all the shops were shut, cooked a fabulous 5+ course for us and our Dutch neighbours (who have been back 4 times!); took us out to the local festival in the village and gave lots a great advice about places to visit. It really is a lovely property and I would recommend without hesitation. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Karen, Ian, Toby and Libby

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!!!

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic stay! Beautiful, clean accommodations and Luca is a wonderful, kind host. Mama de Luca brought us fresh strawberries to taste and Luca brought us homemade jam, lemoncello, and olive oil. He also arranged an unforgettable wine tasting for us. One of the highlights of our trip!

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.
