Charming Villa with spectacular views
The Villa is absolutely beautiful with stunning views in every direction. It is the perfect location for visiting the Tuscan towns and only 20 min from Florence.
Ida was a wonderful host with helpful advice of restaurants and sights.
Outstanding location, set among tranquil olive groves with views across the Tuscan hills, and within easy striking distance of Florence, Sienna and Pisa. The owners grow figs, grapes, plums, lemons and delicious tomatoes, and make their own olive oil. Signora has a perfectionist's eye for detail, as shown in the spacious house, which is furnished with antiques. The house and pool are kept spotlessly clean, and she offers much helpful advice about local attractions and facilities, including a great tip about parking in Florence. The nearby town of Montespertoli has all the shops you need, plus restaurants, bars and a wine shop (opposite the supermarket) where you can get your bottles refilled from a huge vat. We bought amazingly fresh and tasty seasonal produce from the green market (Tuesday) and the Farmer's market (Saturday).
This villa is wonderful. It is very spacious, extremely clean, and contains all of the necessities for a very comfortable stay. The grounds surrounding the villa are also immaculate and the views are spectacular. It is conveniently located close to Florence and many other popular sites such as Pisa. The town in which it is located is small but contains restaurants and a grocery store (less than 10 minutes away by car).
The property owner's residence is attached to the villa. Although she is quite concerned about her villa (at times overly so) she is also very helpful and a good resource.
The only real drawback is that those with very small children must take caution when on this property as there is dangerously steep hill immediately behind the villa which is unguarded. It somewhat affected our ability to enjoy the grounds but did not affect our enjoyment of the villa overall.
This villa is a great find. We very much enjoyed our stay and would go back if the opportunity arose.
The villa is really beautiful and spacious, surrounded by vineyards. View is spectacular! There were 10 of us but still had plenty of rooms. The owner is very helpful and nice, however very afraid about her property. She asked us to pay attention not to make any stains and spots on the floors and marble sink in the kitchen, but at the same time she could gave us fresh tomatoes from the garden. This place is nice for people who like to rest and read. It’s very quiet and 15 minutes by car to the nearest small town.
Villa San Piero is strategically positioned on top of a hill in the hart of tuscany with a wonderful view and a great private swimming pool. Surrounded by olive groves vineyards and fruit trees with a carefully groomed garden around it. Whats so impressive of the villa is its original design and carefully selected antic furniture in addition to its privacy and care paid by its owners to fine details that made our trip extra special and comfortable. Moreover the owners which are first class and live next door were very kind and helpful in giving there expertise opinion on what to see and where to eat etc... so we felt like locals.
