Beautiful villa, perfect hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the perfect ending to a hectic two weeks touring Europe. We were able to immerse ourselves in the Italian countryside and relax. The pool was as wonderful as the pictures, and we were in it within an hour of arriving. Cristina, her mother and her girls took great care of us, including preparing an amazing dinner our first night so we didn't have to worry about that after traveling (we came from Monaco by car). We were a large group of 7, mostly teenagers, and everyone loved the house, the pool, the view, the peace and quiet. So much space, we fit comfortably. We wish we could've stayed longer than 4 days. All the other 5 star reviews are true, excellent all around!

A week in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at this beautiful property. The house was breathtaking and yet it felt like home. Our host and her family were so welcoming. My son and his cousin enjoyed the pool with a view of the valley. We played with Luna the kitten and Therese the lop eared bunny. The other guest were friendly. I only wished we had stayed for another week so that we could spend more time relaxing in the perfect Tuscan get-away. Last night we tried to recreate Christina's signature sage ravioli, I think we got the sage leaves right 😉. Grazie Mille!

Charming villa, stunning pool!

  • 5 of 5

This antique villa was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated, each room outfitted with a bathroom and door leading outside, and each with its own personality. The infinity pool is a stunner, with views looking straight out on Tuscany - though shared with the guests of the other villas. The owner, Cristina, was a gracious hostess, offering olive oil made on the estate, and local wine for our homecoming. We were able to buy an infinite amount of tomatoes from Cristina's garden, and as an additional special touch, she and her mother cooked a real Tuscan meal for our party, two families amounting to nine people - which was well worth the additional charge! It's a (steep) adventure getting to the villa, but the location is well-situated near Florence. Our family loved our stay, and had a hard time parting. We definitely recommend it.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable accommodation. Good sized double bedroom with queen bed, built in wardrobe & good ensuite. All renovated, large comfortable living/ dining room, small kitchen, access to a shared swimming pool.

Great small or large group facilities with two other separate houses in close proximity.

Need a small car to access Prato & nearby towns or hire a bus.

Beautiful views, friendly, helpful owners who speak English.

Really good area to visit - close to Lucca, Pistoia, Florence and Prato which is a very interesting town & much underrated. Very good restaurants in nearby towns & the surrounding country. Our stay here added considerably to our Tuscan experience after a few days in Florence. Thoroughly recommended.

Only a few kilometers separate this place that looks stolen from a fairy tale from the city of Florence. We are in the town of Savignano Vaiano, the small stone village where he was born in 1777 the artist Lorenzo Bartolini which became official sculptor of the Bonaparte family.

Coming from the city, the impact is a sudden slowdown, a sense of calm. It 'nice to know that there are still places like this. Unknown to most people, and available to all.

The residence is part of the wider Improved Villa is about 12 km from the center of Prato. About 25 km from the airport of Florence. The nearest station Vaiano connects us with Prato, Florence and Bologna.
