We had the best time exploring Chianti and Tuscany from Alberto and Camilla's wonderful villa! Between the all the space in the main house and the Hunting lodge, we never felt like we didn't have enough space. Both patios provided plenty of space to sit and amazing views. There are plenty of bathrooms for a large group and plenty of space to sit down for dinners and meals. The kitchens are fully stocked with what you need to cook, but come prepared with groceries unless you have a car. The closest town is a good 20 minute walk and there is hardly anything in there. If you rent a driver and bus, please note that getting down to the house is bumpy and steep, but possible. Do all of your shopping when you are visiting other towns and be prepared to cook dinners or have them cook dinners, the are no restaurants within in short walking distance. I would highly recommend the pizza by Alberto and any dinners by both of them. Everything they made was pure Tuscan heaven and memorable. Come hungry, they out due themselves. I would also recommend dinner at Dievole, a winery very close to them for one evening. Alberto and Camilla will make you feel so welcome and will make this trip a once in a lifetime experience. Camilla is a terrific guide and I would highly recommend booking her for a full day visit to Siena (a magical city). She also took us to Pienza and Montalcino, she is very knowledgeable and will provide an amazing guided tour. I highly recommend this location and house! The house itself is very comfortable, but slightly rustic. If you are looking for something modern or new, you will not find it here. The beds are comfortable, rooms are clean, and the space is great. I hope you can visit this part of Chianti/Tuscany!

In the villa itself, we wanted a stay in a Tuscan villa with rustic charm but complete with modern amenities for our convenience and comfort. To our delight Isola Serena surpassed our expectations! The villa was thoughtfully and strategically designed to complement the Tuscan landscape. The thoughtful design was illustrated through each window of the home which acted as frames for the surrounding landscape presenting it as living art, achieving the goal to remind us of the beauty surrounding the villa. As for our comfort and convenience, this same thoughtfulness was applied through the amenities both in and outside the home (kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, bathrooms, patio and pool). The only downside of Isola Serena is that we wanted to spend every moment possible in this picture-perfect home. It is worthwhile to mention the convenience of the location where the town of Castellina was less than ten minutes away. There was easy access to many other towns in the Chianti region, for a day trip to Florence or Siena, or a short drive to Montalcino to explore the Brunello region. Our stay was also made more relaxing by the ready availability of Natalia, the property manager, who was always willing to answer any questions or address any concerns. We have visited Italy numerous times and have rented a number of villas, many of which were beautiful homes with significant sentimentality attached, however we can attest that, for us, Isola Serena tops the list. To answer the common question when we consider renting a home away from home: ‘Do the pictures reflect the reality? Our emphatic response is the reality is much better!

                                                                                                  Overall: The house was exactly as depicted on the site. Well appointed, spotlessly clean, a well equipped kitchen, and lovely rooms with views. Enjoyed Most: The terrace with superb views, and en suite bathroom with every bedroom. Enjoyed Least: The driveway down was appalling, little more than a dirt track, steep, rutted and stony. Our basic rental cars really struggled to drive up there every day, and for the quality of the house itself, the drive is unacceptable. We also felt that the pool area was unfinished, as you had to step off the terrace and walk on the gravel path to reach it. A paved path or steps would join it better to the house as a whole. Surrounding Area: The towns of San Gimignano, Volterra, and Radda were lovely to visit, but go and park early, by 8:30 AM, before all the tourist coaches arrive and swamp the place. The same with Florence and Siena, beautiful places, but full of people. Nearby Events or Locales: The closest town, Castellina in Chianti, had everything we needed, shops, Coop, restaurants, chemist, ice cream parlour! And, it was very pretty to walk around and have a drink. It was a few minutes drive away. Tips or Restaurants: Tre Porte Resaturant in Castellina was a great family favourite. Drive a fairly powerful car! Spend lots of time relaxing at the villa. Everything is provided, you only need groceries, fantastic. Directions: Directions were clear. It's easier to find coming from Castellina, though. From Florence Airport, set GPS for Castellina in Chianti, then drive through the town following signs for Siena. Opposite the Gelateria, ice cream parlour, take the 51 to Castellina Scalo, and the second turning left gets you onto the dirt track to the house. It's a 45 minute drive in all. Check In Out: Natalia was extremely helpful with advice. She had the house ready early and kindly let us know so that we were installed by 2 PM. We also were allowed to leave later as no one was coming that day. It really helped our trip. She kept in touch the whole time and made us feel valued.
