Very good....

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Very good.

Enjoyed Most:

Great view.

Enjoyed Least:

WiFi was in separate building (as stated in the description) and was slow. Lack of power outlets was inconvenient in the kitchen. The washing machine is small and only has instructions in Italian. The cycle in slow and, as stated in description, there is no dryer. Editor's Note: Washing machines in Europe are energy/water efficient, and therefore slow. Dryers, unless indicated, are not available--also due to energy reasons. October, 2015.

Surrounding Area:

View and close proximity to the small winery.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Santa Brigida is the nearest town. It's walkable, but only for individuals in excellent physical condition - uphill on narrow mountain roads - 4 of 12 people elected to walk to town several mornings for coffee.

Tips or Restaurants:

Determine which restaurants are open on which days - that is more of a challenge than the quality of food served. We rented vans as we had a large group and needed to get to the train station for day trips; the vans was inconvenient for travel on narrow roads. Smaller vehicles are recommended.

Directions:

Used GPS with Latitude/Longitude provided. Worked fine.

Check In Out:

It was fairly straightforward.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Very pretty location. Very nice set up with bathrooms for almost every bedroom.

Enjoyed Most:

The large rooms, large dining room table with plenty of space for large groups to gather in. Bedrooms very nice size, bathrooms nice.

Enjoyed Least:

Lack of appliance plugs in kitchen. Unreliable WiFi. Location more remote than expected.

Surrounding Area:

Closeness to Santa Brigida, very nice people there who were very helpful. The wonderful pizza place in Santa Brigida. Also the restaurants in and around the area. The winery close by to visit and tour. Great wines.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Santa Brigida was closest. Several of us walked there daily and it felt very convenient.

Tips or Restaurants:

Rent small cars. We requested 4 passenger vans and got 8 passenger vans which were rough to drive on narrow roads. Lots of restaurants all around.

Directions:

Directions are great but no one should visit the area without a GPS. We had one for all three vans.

Check In Out:

Went very well.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We had a absolutely fabulous time. The villa was beautiful and charming.

Enjoyed Most:

The location was absolutely beautiful, with olive groves and a great view of Castle Del Trebbio and the surrounding Tuscan hillsides. Its proximity to Santa Brigida and the Seici train station was a bonus.

Enjoyed Least:

The fact that there was no clothes dryer (as we'd read in the description) and the refrigerator was inadequate for 12 to 14 guests. Also, we needed more towels than were provided.

Surrounding Area:

The many hillside towns, gorgeous vistas, wonderful restaurants, the winery just steps away.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Santa Brigida was about 2 miles from the villa. A very nice walk...mostly uphill.

Tips or Restaurants:

Yes, the winery's restaurant was very good, also, fantastic food at IL Pozzo in Cortona...don't miss it if you go there.

Directions:

A GPS is essential for travel to the Villa and for daily excursions to nearby towns. The coordinates given were right on and we did not have a problem finding the Villa.

Check In Out:

It was very easy. Alberto is a great host and was available to answer questions we had.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

A fantastic property with excellent facilities in a fabulous location. Perfect!

Enjoyed Most:

The views outside were breathtaking!

Surrounding Area:

Again, the scenery was stunning.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Santa Brigida was a short walk ( 2 miles approx) but it was all uphill so not suitable for those who would find this challenging.

Tips or Restaurants:

Purchase toilet paper as only one roll is provided in each bathroom. A 4-slice toaster would be a lovely addition.

Directions:

GPS was not successful in finding this property; best to contact the property manager Alberto (phone number on voucher) for instruction once you are in the area.

Check In Out:

Super smooth thanks to Alberto and his excellent staff.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

The entire property is amazing. The views are breathtaking.

I really wanted to do a bit less sightseeing and spend more time enjoying the villa.

Enjoyed Most:

Eight of us went from my family and we all had plenty of

privacy when needed with so many rooms and living areas

to choose from. We were also excited about seeing deer on

the property early in the morning.

Surrounding Area:

The villa was very quiet and peaceful. The castle was charming and the tour very informative. We were far enough away from Florence to enjoy the countryside but

only a cab drive away from all the activities.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Santa Brigida was the nearest town. It was quite a walk up

hill but very charming. We shopped at the grocery store

to stock up on a few things for the villa.

Tips or Restaurants:

Just be sure to get some groceries before and soon after you arrive at the villa. We hired a chef for two evening dinners and that turned out to be an excellent idea. The meals were delicious and we were tired from visits to Rome and Venice so being pampered felt great.

Directions:

We didn't have too many problems. We gave as a reference

the castle name and address to the cab drivers.

Check In Out:

We arrived late due to our plane being delayed. Alberto was

very helpful in our check in. He made our stay most

excellent.

Absolutely amazing!...

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Absolutely amazing!

Enjoyed Most:

The rustic Tuscan interior and huge amount of space!

Enjoyed Least:

The dim lighting in some on the bathrooms.

Surrounding Area:

The walks and beautiful views.

Nearby Events or Locales:

It's was within walking distance but with children you must drive!

Tips or Restaurants:

Your own towels for the swimming pool.

Directions:

More signage, however the villa is fairly well sign-posted already.

Check In Out:

Pack the night before check out to make it easier.

Map

The villa is located two kilometers from the nearest town of Santa Brigida where there are shops, restaurants, a post office, church, and pharmacy. Fiesole, just to the north, has a history that goes straight back to Etruscan times, evidenced in the remains of ancient city walls, and in the middle ages was actually a rival of Florence for power until it was sacked. Today it is a "magical" place, famed for its part in E.M. Forster's "A Room With A View." You can find the remains of Roman baths and a theatre, as well as a medieval castle (restored in 1865). Of course the primary attraction of the greater area is the majestic city of Florence, world-renowned for its art and culture. Go here to shop the Ponte Vecchio, marvel at the statue of David, or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery. Other great day trip destinations include San Gimignano, Arezzo, and Siena. Siena: 95 km Arezzo: 80 km San Gimignano: 76 km Florence: 24 km Pontassieve: 15 km Santa Brigida: 2.5 km
