Absolutely beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property, while accurate, do not do it justice! The views are breathtaking, the property is serene and beautiful, and the home itself is exactly what you'd envision a Tuscan home to be. We were a group of 7 and the home was very spacious and clean... and Patrizia, I can't say enough about her! She was a gracious host, always available, and her restaurant recommendations were fantastic! She made reservations for us every night we were there. If you are looking for a quiet place to sip wine in a picturesque setting with the scent of jasmine in the air, this is the place for you! Only a half hour drive to Florence for sightseeing, this was the perfect place to start and end the day.. We will definitely be back!

Thank you Patrizia!

Dreamy!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. Its even better than the photos.

It is very private and quiet but is still only a short drive to several great restaurants. The owner of the home is just lovely and made all our dinner reservations for us. She was also always available for tips and recommendations.

We will definitely be back and will take our dog with us next time.

Beautiful dream home, that I keep dreaming of!

  • 5 of 5

400 year old farmhouse, (would love to know the history), that is comfortable and clean and dreamy. Loved cooking on the little stove, whipping up some coffee in the morning, and sleeping soundly upstairs.

Loved the restaurant recommendations and so enjoyed driving around that part of Italy.

We drove into Florence twice during our 5 day stay, but always loved coming back.

Good vibes, felt like home.

Patrizia is a wonderful lady!

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.
