A Bijou villa but the covered outside area makes it all worth while. The view from the villa is spectacular. The roads in and out take a bit of getting used to but other than that, no complaints. The owners were more than helpful. A very enjoyable time had by all.
Netter Empfang durch die Besitzerin Silvia. Das Haus liegt inmitten von Weinreben und Olivenbäumen. Anfahrt erfolgt über einen unbefestigten Weg. Haus Roberto ist komplett ausgestattet und sauber. Bettwäsche und Handtücher sind vorhanden und werden nach 7 Tagen gewechselt. Toll ist die vorhandene Waschmachine. Aufgrund der Lage und dem eigenen Pool ist man wirklich unter sich. In der Nachbarortschaft Castelfiorentino sind Lidl, Coop und diverse andere Geschäfte, Fahrzeit ca. 8 Minuten. Ich würde Haus Roberto weiter empfehlen. Evtl. werden wir die Anlage nochmal buchen.
We had a very nice holiday! The house is small but has everything you need. The terras (with a big roof) and the view are superb!! We did spend hours there! The pool is very nice to swim in on a warm day. Silvia was also very kind and helpfull! We hope to get back there!
We had wonderful holidays at Villa Roberto. The view from the terrace is stunning... we never got tired to watch the beautiful sunset! The private pool was also very nice to have! It was very hot while we were there and we were glad to have it! The inside of the villa is pretty small but practical and we had everything we needed. And we spent most of the time on the terrace or in the backyard. It's also well located: we could easily go to Firenze, San Gimignano, Sienna, Greve in Chianti, etc. The villa provides lot's of intimacy and was perfect for a small family. We travelled with our baby and our wonderful host lent us a babycot and a highchair. The only negative point we could have is that the beds weren't very confortable, but even with this, If we go back to Tuscany again, we would choose the same place.
My wife and I so loved our one week stay at this amazingly charming cottage. We had arrived very late at night, got lost a couple of times leaving Florence and desperately needed the assistance of Silvia to guide us to find the property. She and her entire family came to the rescue and graciously met us at some point along the highway, and led us to a wonderfully illuminated private property that was our home for the week. Even at night, it looked so inviting with abundant landscape lighting which shone on the garden, house and pool. Beautiful!
Villa Roberto captures the essence of the Tuscan farm-living experience. The vibrant, traditional colors, shuttered windows and expansive outdoor living areas with spectacular views of the valley below – olive groves, grape vines, rustic farm houses nearby and small hill-top villages off in the distance all made us feel like we’d picked the perfect place as our headquarters for exploring Tuscany. Roberto is so centrally situated that we were able to easily access so many wonderful hill-top villages during the day, and return home in time to catch the sunset, before preparing dinner with all of the fresh, local ingredients that we’d purchased earlier.
This cottage was so nicely appointed with all of the little details that most don’t provide. For instance, the small kitchen had all cooking utensils and even a small espresso maker. We’d take our morning coffee out on the terrace and enjoy the morning sounds as we took in the view. The covered terrace was sure useful as there were a couple of rainy days, yet we kept dry even as we stubbornly insisted on enjoying our antipasti while enjoying the lovely rural vista. BTW - the photos are older and do not show the newly constructed terrace roof.
The pool was a luxury on hot days, allowing us to cool off as we sipped Prosecco. On one particular evening, the moon was enormous, so we decided to sit out by the pool as we watched it track across the night sky. The washing machine was a nice convenience as well.
We enjoyed our stay at Roberto so much, that we would definitely stay there again, as well as recommend to our friends!
