Paradise and 2 Angels

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and I arrived at the square in Cerbaia and were greeted so warmly by Stefania and Fabbio We followed in our car to their villa. The photos do not do justice to this amazing hideaway in the most perfect Tuscan setting. The home is spacious, nicely furnished, and comfortable. I loved the kitchen and it has everything you need. The owners took the time to tell us about the are and have numerous books about Italy. The property is magnificent! You are surrounded by olive trees, fig trees, plants and flowers and a few lemon trees. There is a beautiful patio , large rear deck facing west where you will experience the most amazing sunsets!! All that being said our idyllic vacation was abruptly interrupted when my husband took a fall at a museum in Florence on our 2nd day at the villa. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital with a severe injury to his leg. The medical care was very adequate and his leg was put into a cast and it was determined that he would need surgery when he arrived home. We were blessed to have 2 angels as owners. I called Fabbio late at night fr telephone #'s to Hertz as neither my son nor I could drive the standard car which was parked in a municipal lot outside of Florence. The next morning I wrote Stefania and Fabbio an email explaining what happened. We were undecided as to what to do as my husband could not get around at all. Fabbio and Stefania were very concerned and offered to help in whatever way they could. I had great comfort knowing that. Making phone calls was difficult without speaking Italian. Fabbio was able to locate an automatic car in Florence which is a rare commodity in Italy particularly when you don't reserve in advance. All I had to do was call and confirm the reservation !The next day Fabbio met us at the villa at 8 am before he went to work and drove us to Florence. His helpfulness made it possible for us to stay and enjoy the rest of our vacation. We would never have stayed if we were in in a hotel. My husband enjoyed sitting on the deck while my son and I did a couple of days of sightseeing. We were able to shop in San Casciano at a wonderful market with fresh, delicious products.We cooked in and enjoyed the sunset every night. We rented crutches at the local pharmacy. Stefania was willing to return them so my husband could use them to get into the car to go to the airport. Although the vacation was not exactly what we planned , we experienced Tuscan living and people at its best! Mille grazie

GREAT LOCATION AND VIEW

  • 5 of 5

This charming and very clean villa was our home for 1 week in September 2014. The owners welcomed us and walked us through the home. The rooms are spacious and the view of the Tuscan hills is gorgeous. There is a good sized super market close by and the kitchen was well equipped, so we ate in 2 nights. Also found several wonderful local restaurants. It's in the quiet countryside and a nice respite after sight seeing all day. It is about 1/2 hour from Florence by car. We also took a day trip to Venice, a 2 hour train ride from Florence. Also visited the village of Greve and took 2 all day wine tours. Didn't get there, but it's about 45 minutes from Pisa. Would definitely recommend this villa as a rental. Thank you Fabio and Stefania for sharing your beautiful home. Ciao, Three very happy couples!

Beautiful. Clean. Spacious. Wonderful rental!

  • 5 of 5

Follow the directions that they give you for getting to the villa... the directions really do help if you don't have GPS.

When the four of us arrived, we were greeted by Fabio and a bottle of wine. He was very kind and very helpful. He thoroughly explained the features of the villa (make sure you pay attention if you're from the US and not familiar with European appliances, water, electricity, etc).

The villa is adorable. The views are amazing. It is clean and well maintained. Our group of four adults had plenty of space to unwind after long days of site seeing.

We enjoyed our evenings relaxing on the comfy couches and sitting on the balcony listening to their nice collection of music. I think the mosquitos hatched during our visit so we couldn't sit outside for long at night. We were able to keep them away by only opening the screened windows/doors, lighting the mosquito candles and used the mosquito nets at night.

Some nights we purchased food from the grocery store (COOP) and cooked in the villa. They have all the appliances and tools you need for a full meal. There is even a grill.

There is local bell tower that rings on the hour. If you are a light sleeper, I would recommend you bring some kind of white noise. It is very pleasant sounding though and you will always know what the time is.

We felt very safe and comfortable in our home away from home. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a comfortable home base for their Tuscan getaway.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I both agreed this was one of the best houses we have rented for a holiday and we have done this a few times over the years in different countries. The house was very comfortable and fitted our needs and that of our 3 children perfectly. Stefania and Fabio met us on our arrival and gave us all the information we needed, oh, and a bottle of the local Chianti Classico to welcome us! You might occasionally see the two of them when they pop round to water the flowers in the lovely garden. They are a very nice couple.

The description of the house is very accurate. The only thing we didn't find available was the wireless internet but this wasn't a big thing for us and we never mentioned it to Fabio so we can't complain.

This property is in a good location to tour the area being close to Florence and other attractions such as Pisa and Siena.

Thanks Stefania and Fabio. Ciao!
