Amazing and beautiful Tuscan spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Patrizia's place. It was in a very beautiful location with gorgeous views and a short drive to Florence. It is a great location for visiting Florence, Sienna, the Chianti region and we also made it to Cinque Terra - what an amazing place to visit.

The hospitality that Patrizia provided was the best we have had in our travels. She made dinner reservations for us at great places close to our place, helped with ideas on places to visit in the Chianti area and Sienna/Florence, and was always available to help with any questions. When one of us lost our wallet in Sienna, Patrizia drove with us to help pick it up from the police station as someone called us that they had found the wallet.

We definitely will go back in the future to visit more of the area and highly recommend staying at Patrizia's wonderful place.

Beautiful, peaceful, convenient, comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

we loved staying at Patrizia's place. It is a beautiful house located less then half an hour away from Florence if you are drinving, a really convenient location if you want to go to different places like we did, Pisa and Siena for example. easy access, has a parking outside and Patrizia the owner is really helpful and nice. We stayed with our family, seven of us, and was perfect. Great fireplace, bathrooms, rooms, everything clean and just very cozy. We are definitely coming back.

We also went with a baby and Patrizia offered a cot and a high chair for us which was very convenient.

Great service, highly recommend it.

Beautifully decorated farmhouse in Tuscany, with Easy Access to Florence.

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 4 stayed at Patrizia's lovely farmhouse for a week, between Christmas and New Year's. The house is a 17th century Tuscan farmhouse and beautifully decorated by Patrizia. The house was warm and comfortable at this time of year, and we spent many evenings around the fireplace drinking our Chianti! Patrizia is so helpful and wants to make sure her guests are comfortable and happy. She is available for suggestions for dining, or for places to visit in the area. Her villa is well situated near the village of Genestra which as a pharmacy, small grocery store and some good restaurants. The main road closest to her house will scenically lead you to Florence. A very good vacation in a beautiful home with a beautiful view of the Tuscan countryside. Thanks Patrizia for your hospitality.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Patrizia for a wonderful stay at your property. The location was very convenient for day trips into Tuscany or Florence. The bedrioms were quite roomy and comfortable. Bathrooms are updated and clean. You have a beautiful terrace overlooking the vineyards. We enjoyed the sprawling vineyards on the way to your property and appreciating the natural setting. Thanks for being so helpful in providing us with recommendation to nearby eateries and making those reservation upon request. We also wanted to thank you for being insightful and mindful for suggesting the day trips that were appropriate for our family. Thanks again and sending my best regards!

Idyllic Tuscan farmhouse--can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, roomy and beautifully designed, reflecting the creativity of owner Patrizia. My husband and I were traveling with our college-aged daughter who was on Spring Break while studying in nearby Florence. Patrizia is a gracious hostess who went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. She helped us find local eating spots and made reservations for us. She also offered guidance on nearby sites including several amazing hill towns, then helped us figure out the best way to get there. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend!
