Lovely, quite and very clean property. large pool which has the most spectacular views. Made to feel very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble for the Fondelli family. Thank you !!!!
Beyond our imagination wonderful!!!
A little of our hearts are still there! The beautiful home was so perfect for our family (we have 6 kids). Monica was always available to help. We loved hiking the huge driveway hitting the "Casa Tosca sign" and running back down the hill. Groceries were close by, the home was so clean and filled with everything you could need. My kids say "we miss Casa Tosca!"
Beautifully clean Villa with fabulous views of the Tuscan hills. Lovely large swimming pool. The Villa is well equipped for eating in with plenty of crockery, glasses etc. The only negative is the lack of comfortable outside seating to enjoy an evening relaxing, there were two chairs when the villa sleeps 8. We would also have liked to have had a safe to lock up our valuables. It is a very step climb up to the village particularly with temperatures reaching 35 degrees. It is walkable but you will be sweaty when you reach the top, not ideal when going out in the evening for a meal. Also beware of the mosquitoes!
Casa Tosca really is a great location in the heart of Tuscany. The interior is perfect, as well as the view, the garden and the pool.
I rate it with 4 instead of 5 stars, as the music/noise coming from the Montaione night club is very loud, disturbing the ones who sleep in the rooms towards it.
excellent villa with lovely views of countryside
Excellent villa and well equipped clean and well maintained. Would highly recommend as we are considering renting again next year but for a longer holiday as we were only there for 5 nights whilst my daughter attended a wedding in Florence. Family and Serena lovely and very helpful. You will enjoy.
House with a wonderful view, excellent location!
Casa Tosca is a very beautiful and well equipped house, with all the comfort you need. It was perfectly clean and the owners are extremely kind.They gave us all the information we needed and grandpa
Tosco brought us several times homemade wine, olive oil and passata.
We never had such a big pool en a wonderful view over the valley.The location is very quiet but within walking distance to the village, where you can find shops and restaurants.Towns as Pisa, Firenze, Lucca,
Sienna etc... are easy to reach by car. We would recommend this property to our friends. We hope to come back!
We are in the wine producing area of Chianti where it is possible to visit the wineries and do wine and olive oil tastings. Our location is so central to explore the main sites in Tuscany within 1 hour drive: Siena, Florence, Lucca, Pisa while San Gimignano and Volterra (20 min away). The pretty ancient village of Montaione is walking distance (5 minutes - steep walk uphill) where there are restaurants and supermarkets. If you are traveling with kids, we have a selection of places to visit in the area: dinasors' park, Pinocchio park, restaurants with live animals... We have prepared a villa book full of ideas for you.
