Overview

Colline dell'interno Villa Rental Photos and Description

Quiet charming villa with huge pool, stunning views, 5 star self catering style

'Podere Fulignano' is a beautiful old farm house complex which has been lovingly restored. It is situated in the middle of a 300 year old olive grove.

The charming houses, which are covered by wines and wisteria, are full of character with excellent quality furnishings and up-market fittings. Beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and hand painted tiles are found throughout them.

'Podere Fulignano' is perfect for both big groups and families who love to spent some time together but also like to enjoy their privacy as well. It is set in 50 acres of ground and the three independent cottages are far enough apart to guarantee peaceful privacy if needed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Danke liebe Mel und Thomas für die tolle Woche in zwei eurer schönen Häuser!

Es war herrlich friedlich und entspannt und für uns sechs, die dem Berliner Arbeits- und Stadtstress mal entfliehen wollten einfach perfekt. Wir haben viel gekocht (Kompliment - haben selten eine so gute Küchenausstattung in einem Ferienhaus gehabt), unendlich viel gelesen und geschlafen und haben immerhin an zwei Tagen Ausflüge ans Meer und nach Siena gemacht. Eurer sensationeller Pool mit seinen fast olympischen Ausmassen hat uns von den anderen eigentlich geplanten Ausflügen abgehalten. Die Sundowner mit AperolSpritz waren herrlich! Einzig und allein die Mücken, wie von dir ja schon angekündigt, haben uns das Leben manchmal etwas schwer gemacht, aber dank rechtzeitiger Autanbesprenkelung haben wir auch das gut in den Griff bekommen.

Was habt ihr euch da ein wundervolles kleines Paradies geschaffen. Wir kommen sicher wieder!

Liebe Grüsse,

Ben und Tamara, Ingo und Claudia, Deniz und Bella

Thank you for the wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Hi Mel,

I just wanted to write and let you know we had an amazing holiday in Campagnatico.

Your property is truly stunning… the villa was incredible, the views to die for, the pool was great, we really couldn’t fault anything. We said all week that’s its truly a 5 star self catering villa experience!

We managed to fit a lot in, but relax at the same time, with trips to Siena, the beach, but also some days by the pool, and many a night spent in the small street and nice bars and restaurants of Campagnatico (Locanda del Glicine was incredible food!)

We even saw some new kittens being born near the back of Casa Roberta, so next time you are there you may see some news faces.

Luciano and his wife were very friendly too, and I don’t think we would have changed a thing about our holiday (well, maybe a little less rain on some days!)

Thanks very much for all your help and advice, and for letting us use Casa Roberta. I'm sure we will be back!

Thanks and regards

Phil, Nerys, Ben & Laura

A delightful Tuscan hideaway - a perfect hols

  • 5 of 5

Mel this was really an idyllic week away - even the weather was perfect. The house was so comfortable - especially the beds - and very well equipped - especially the kitchen - the shower was also great. Sitting on the terrace in the evening looking over the green valley was delightful. Hardly any mosquitoes - and the pool was stunning - we so enjoyed our stay. Daniella was so caring and helpful. Our trips to Siena, Montalchino and Castigliano and of course to San Giminiano were out of this world. Yes we would definitely recommend Villa Luca - well done you have done a super job in getting the complex to a very high standard - we had a truly memorable hols. Peter and Pippa and girls.

We miss Tuscany and Casa Enrica Already!

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect two weeks at Fugligmano, Campagnatico! The farm's location, the hilltop villages, the fabulous food, the wine, and the people, so friendly! We loved the Casa Enrico. It was perfect for us. The housekeeper, Daniela, was very responsive and friendly, the whole property is enchanting, and we enjoyed your wonderful pool! It was nice that we had our own private apartment with patio and furniture for relaxing and taking in the wonderful scenery. But, we also liked having neighbors in the other apartments to share our daily adventures and recommendations with around the pool or at the clothes line.

We enjoyed meeting new friends from Britain, Austrailia, Germany, and of course the very friendly and helpful Italians there at the farm, in "our" village Campgnatico, and all around Tuscany. The location was ideal. We flew into Roma and spent the weekend there seeing the sights going and coming. We went to Florence, an easy drive, for an overnight & siteseeing.

But most of all, we loved our early Tuscan mornings having cappuccino (machine provided in our apartment!) on our patio, taking a road trip to discover a new hilltop village, winery, sculpture garden, seaside castle or charming tattitoria for a nice lunch before siesta.

We will be back!

Wonderful location, spacious house, great pool!

  • 5 of 5

It was our second stay, we love the location! From the terrace of Casa Enrico you can overlook the Tuscan hills, surrounded by olive trees, oleander and jasmine. The pool is wonderful and huge. For the children there is a trampoline, a large lawn for playing football and a rope slide. And for the parents: You are in the middle of a wine region, Siena, Montalcino and Grosseto are nearby and also many great restaurants. The beaches of Maremma are just half an hour away! Last but not least: Mel and Thomas are wonderful hosts, helpful and supportive! We will definitely come back!

Beautiful, peaceful and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Casa Enrico was really lovely, as was the setting, with the most amazing natural pool, a necessity due to the incredibly hot weather Tuscany was experiencing when we were there. The house was very private from the rest of the property. It was spotless and very well equipped. We had a baby with us, but property would be even better for family with older kids due to the fabulous grounds and pool, although we enjoyed the zipbeire ourselves!

Campagnatico is a beautiful little town, and we were lucky to be able to experience the local Sagra one evening.

Mel, the owner, was a great host and was quick to respond to any queries we had.

Casaenrico , Podere Fulignano, kleines Paradies

  • 4 of 5

Ein wunderschönes Anwesen. Sehr weitläufig und ohne unmittelbaren Nachbarn.Sehr gepflegt. Absolute Ruhe und Erholung ist garantiert. Das Interieur ist einwandfrei und sauber. Es gab absolut nichts was uns nicht gefiel. Die Besitzer sind sehr darauf bedacht schnell und unkompliziert zu agieren und denken im Sinne des Gastes. Das Personal ist hilfsbereit und absolut zurückhaltend. Die Lage ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt zur Erkundung der Toskana. Das angeschlossene Dorf hat sehr viel Charm, Urtümlichkeit und Charakter. Jeder Einwohner ist freundlich. Alles ist zubekomnen. Gerne werden wir für Kurzurlaube wie auch länger Aufenthalte zurückkehren.

Viele Grüße

Albert Stratmann

At the beautiful and charming little medieval (c.1200 century) village of Campagnatico (700 inhabitants) you will find a small supermarket, a pharmacy, a butcher, a bakery, a bank, a post office, two bars and three restaurants: a pizza place, a trattoria and a very luxurious one (which is an insider’s tip). The next big town is Grosseto, just 18 km away. There you will find everything you need including huge supermarkets, fresh fish markets and a really nice shopping area and walking zone. Campagnatico is located exactly in the middle of a triangle between the three big cities of Florence, Pisa and Rome. There is also good railway connection between these three cities and Grosseto, which is great for arriving to the farm, as well as for sightseeing. The big and beautiful nature reserve 'Parco naturale della Maremma' and the nicest beaches of the Maremma region such as Punta Ala, Monte Argentario, Castiglione della Pescaia are in only half an hour by car from the property.

Other Activities: wine tasting

Golf: 2 different 18 holes Golf Courses located within 40km from the property, open all the year: “Golf Club Toscana - Il Pelagone” (35 km) and “Golf Club Punta Ala” (about 35 km).
