A wonderful big house for a big family ot a group of friends
The villa and its location are excellent.Amenities are fine, particularly the swimming pool; great for a family with children. The owners are friendly and helpful, but were not aware that we had agreed evening cooking for the duration of our stay. However, they were able to remedy this. The air conditioning did not function properly upon arrival, but this too was remedied. All in all, our family (8 adults, 5 children) is looking back on a great holiday in Villa Roncovisi.
Five stars. We rented the villa for a month and were very pleased with that decision. The owners were a delight to meet and visit with. The furnishings, rooms, grounds and pool were fantastic. Location to major destinations was very convenient. Heads up to the curving road near the house where the locals toot their horns....that was the ONLY downside.
Carmine & Ana - Bloomfield, NJ. We just returned from a week at Villa Roncovisi. We were a group of 5 families. Total 19 people. We had an AWESOME time. The owners were very attentive and available for any questions or concerns. There was an air conditioner issue and it was resolved promptly. So, we didnt have to sleep in the heat. Temperatures rose to over 90 degrees F. that week, but at night the temp. was wonderful. The villa was absolutely beautiful, the antiques and furniture makes it very warm and inviting. The bathrooms were modern and clean, which is important. Who wants to hold the shower handle when washing yourself. The pool was fabulous, we literally hanged outside from morning till night. The grounds are beautiful. Also, the villa is conveniently located, you can easily visit, Florence, Pisa, Lucca and even Bologna. Bottom line, this was the best villa so far. This is our 3rd time renting villas in Italy, once in Ischia and twice in Tuscany. I Would recommend Villa Roncovisi 100%. Kudos to Ann & Alessandro for a beautiful villa.
You will not be disappointed with this villa rental. All bathrooms have been 100 percent renovated. 4 of the 7 bedrooms have true king size beds. Home and antique furnishings are even nicer than pictures show. The 2 owners live near by and are a lovely couple and most helpful with anything you may need. They were a life saver for one in our party recovering lost luggage from the airline. If you are looking for a villa in the Tuscany area this property and it's gorgeous views should be your selection.
We had an outstanding week at Villa Roncovisi. The villa is meticulously maintained, very comfortable, beautiful gardens, pool, furnishings and extremely hospitable owners. We can't wait to return.
