Absolutely wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptionally nice house, beautifully furnished and with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is really well equipped and the welcome basket was an especially nice touch!

And what a lovely outside area with a fantastic pool, many comfortable seats, a beautiful view, and surrounded by olive groves (although the mosquitos are a little troublesome, so it's a good idea to take a spray).

Thank you Marco for a wonderful holiday in your beautiful home!

Perfect, magical villa with a great pool.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and didn't want to leave! The villa is beautifully appointed with every care taken to detail. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated with amazing views across the hills and to the village of Pelago. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms are lovely. The village of Pelago is a 4-5 minute walk up a path at the rear of the house where there is a small supermarket, a couple of bars/ cafes and a cashpoint. It has a pretty square leading up to the church. The villa's garden is wonderful with a choice of places to sit. The large, comfy outdoor sofa under the gazebo was my personal favourite. This was especially nice in the evening with the garden/pool lights on looking over to the lights of the village. One evening a deer walked past only about 10' away from me. All communication with Marco was excellent and we were greeted and shown around by Lucia, the housekeeper, on arrival. We only ventured out twice - a short drive to Fiesole with amazing views over Florence and some interesting Roman ruins, and a trip to Florence itself. We took the train from S. Ellero for convenience and it was a lovely 30 minute trip into Florence. Once at the station it's only a 10 min walk into the main historical centre. All together a fabulous place to stay - thank you Marco and Adele.

Paradise in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We are always sceptical when renting a home as I think most people are, is it as described, are the pictures deceiving, well I can say with confidence that this home was above and beyond our expectations! We booked months in advance and the communication from the owner Marco was absolutely fantastic, upon arrival we were met by the Housekeeper and her family who took the time to show us absolutely everything we needed to know about the villa. The property is absolutely beautiful and no detail was missed we had everything needed to enjoy a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. Just everything about this villa, the location, the amenities, is just perfect, we will be back and I would not hesitate to recommend Marco's home to friends and family. Experience this Tuscan Gem for yourself!

Authentique Maison Toscane dans un lieu enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer deux semaines en famille dans cette villa où tout contribue à la détente et au repos. La maison est fonctionnelle, elle dispose d'un équipement très complet et est décorée avec raffinement.

L'extèrieur de la maison présente de nombreuses " bulles" de détente invitant au repos et à la dilettante

L'hospitalité , le caractère attentionné de nos hôtes Marco et Adèle et la réactivité, dont ils ont fait preuve pour répondre à nos demandes ont largement contribué à la qualité de nos vacances. Je ne saurai terminé cette appréciation sans évoquer la beauté de la campagne environnante, composée d'oliviers centenaires et d'essences méditerranéennes.

En conclusion, nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances à Pelago et recommandons vivement cette villa.

Wonderful, quiet and elegant location to spend restful days

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to describe how relaxed you can feel here - it is a marvelous house surrounded by olive trees, interior and exterior are very tasteful decorated. Everything is top clean and in best working order. Whether you prefer to rest and read a good book in the shade or to visit Florence (some 20 km away) or maybe have a long walk int he hills surrounding Pelago, you can do it. Probably the best place and way to spend time in Tuscany.
