Abbiamo passato una bellissima settimana in un posto stupendo e anche ben tenuto davvero devo fare i miei complimenti per la gestione della villa, unica piccolissima nota dolente la strada per arrivarci un po' dissestata, ma direi che ne vale la pena!!

Review for stay from 29 July 2017 to 05 August 2017

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable house in a great location. Amazing views across the valley to the castle. Garden and pool well kept (pool has shade in the afternoon which was perfect for the long hot days). Shaded outdoor dining area was good - we had all our meals here. Plenty of beds - but some rooms are linked which can impact on privacy. Kitchen a little small but well equipped. 2 fridges very handy! Alessandra the owner was welcoming and attentive. Large supermarket and great gelateria in nearby Subbiano. Easy access to nearby attractions including Poppi, La Verna, Anghiari, Arezzo.

A beautiful well-kept property with pool and amazing Tuscany views. Bedrooms are linked.

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a wonderful place for our family group of 15 to stay.

The owner Alessandra made contact before arrival and met us at spot in the nearest town, leading us to the property via the dusty country roads. She gave a thorough and useful introduction to the property and facilities.

The setting could not be better, with captivating views of the lush rolling hills, cypress trees, and the Castello di Valenzano in the distance. We enjoyed hot days chilling in the pool and long warm moonlit evenings outdoors sipping Chianti, listening to the cicadas. The keen runners amongst us explored the forested hills via numerous trails accessed from outside the gate.

The house was immaculately kept, with decent kitchen equipment. Plenty of towels for indoors and the pool. Large outdoor area with plenty of seating and loungers. Separate meadow area, good for football and boules! Handy utility area off the front porch with dishwasher, washing machine, toilet and shower (useful when you are in and out of the pool on those hot Tuscan days!).

Despite the idyllic isolated location, it is only 10 minutes' drive to the main SR71 road and 15 minutes to Subbiano with its supermarkets, petrol station and the excellent Stella gelateria.

Alessandra was contactable by phone and WhatsApp and responded quickly to our queries.

Negative points:

- 6 of the 7 bedrooms are linked, so you have to go through one or two other rooms to access your own. OK for close family if you don't need privacy!

- The kitchen water boiler was unreliable so that we often had no hot water for the sink.

- Likewise one of the upstairs immersion heaters didn't always work, therefore the odd cold shower.

- The living room is small, with seating for only 6 people. Fine for the summer when you will spend all day outside by the pool or in the covered dining area, but probably not great during the colder months?

- The pocket WiFi device provided would not connect to the internet despite us moving it around the inside and outside of the property. Fortunately your mobile can pick up signal next to certain windows, or outdoors.

- No air conditioning, but this is a big old stone-walled house so it will stay cool as long as windows and shutters are closed in the heat of the day.

- There was no tourist information within the property about local excursions, walking trails etc. Get a guidebook or look up the internet!

Despite the above, I would strongly recommend this for an unforgettable family holiday.

Review for stay from 17 June 2017 to 01 July 2017

  • 5 of 5

We spent a magical two weeks in this lovely Tuscan villa. There were 10 of us for the most part and 13 when family came for a few days. We all had plenty of space and were in awe of the breath-taking views from the villa. We visited Florence, Siena, Assisi and Arezzo. We found the people of the neighbouring village of Subbiano to be so friendly, welcoming and helpful. We had to use the medical centre in Subbiano and were very impressed by the efficiency of everyone. Alessandra and Eugenia were extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our holiday. Would recommend the beautiful Tuscan meal that Alessandra and her lovely mum can make for you in the villa. Just sad to be home.

Review for stay from 17 September 2016 to 24 September 2016

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschönes Haus, ein wahrer Ort der Erholung und Ruhe. Ideal für jeden der die Schönheit der Toskana ohne jede Ablenkung genießen möchte, weshalb es eigentlich auch ein Vorteil ist, dass das WLAN nicht funktioniert. Der Blick vom Pool ist herrlich und der Garten ein kleines Paradies. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet und wir sind vor Ort hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend empfangen worden. Der einzige Nachteil ist das Durchgangszimmer, das man eigentlich nicht als Schlafzimmer nutzen kann, weil es der Zugang zu vier weiteren Zimmern ist. Es ist zwar ein sehr schöner Raum, aber kein Rückszugsort. Trotzdem würde ich das Haus jedem empfehlen und komme nächstes Jahr gerne wieder.

Arezzo

The countryside of Arezzo, with its rolling hills and unspoilt landscapes, is a true gem in Tuscany. You can spend relaxing days under the glorious sunshine admiring the views of the valley created by the Arno River, or explore famous cities and hamlets such as Siena, Arezzo, Florence, Cortona or even Rome (that can be easily reached also by train). Alternatively you can just have a refreshing dip in the private pool with panoramic views over the valley, miles away from the daily stress and routine. This is Tuscany! welcome to our own little paradise.
