We stayed at Podere Tresa for the entire month of June 2018. We started off the month with 5 moms and 10 kids. The villa is an amazing accomodation for that many people. At the beginning of the 3rd week we had 5 families and a total of 18 people. Every family had their own apartment that includes it's own kitchen, living room and bathroom.
The accomodations are wonderful, each apartment is equiped with everthing you would need for a relaxing vacation. The main kitchen is huge and has the best view in the house. We spent many nights and mornings sitting and enjoying conversation, food, wine, coffee and the view, simply beautiful. There's 2 more outdoor seating areas to enjoy meals and those where equally impressive.
The pool is fantastic! We had 10 kids who loved playing in the pool every day. There are lawn chairs with comfy cushions and nice big towels for 9 people, which was enough for our group of adults.
We didn't rent a car so we walked the 35 minutes to the train station and 20 minutes to the grocery store. This made for some great excursions and memories (we found a house along the walk that had 64 turtles in the yard, kids loved it). We did take a taxi back from the train station after a long day of exploring. A few times we walked home with our groceries and a few times we stopped with the taxi on the way home from the train station. By train we explored Florence, Rome, Orvieto, Siena, Assisi and Perugia, all of them easy to get to and beautiful. If you're not up for walking to the train or store I would suggest a car. There a couple great restuarants near the train station and on the walk there.
The location of the villa is amazing, on top of a hill so you get a nice breeze and it's not too hot. We could enjoy the pool every day and only a couple evenings it was hot. The house has fans for every bedroom so that helped.
The owner Maria was very helpful with our vacation. We booked a year in advance and she was willing to Skype with me and show me the house and answer the million questions we had. When we arrived she gave us a great tour around the villa and even around the town showing us the grocery store, bank, gelato and restuarants. When we had an issue with something Maria was very responsive and helpful. She truely is a great host and has the most amazing villa to share. Maria also connected us with two local chefs, both of them where amazing.
We would rent again, Thank you!
Nice clean comfortable apartment. Check in and out was fast. Pool and grounds were exceptional. The staff recognized it was one of our party's birthday and delivered a bottle of Proseco. No screens on windows. Had to use the A/C full time. WiFi was OK. All in all a good 2 week stay.
