  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Superb location for a family reunion.

The lovely bedrooms rooms and big communal areas allowed family time and when needed, quiet time.

19 people were accommodated most comfortably.

Enjoyed Most:

The beauty of the villa and size and layout and its ability to accommodate all of us so comfortably.

Enjoyed Least:

The lack of cooling in the hot weather we experienced in July.

We were supplied with fans, which certainly helped.

The upstairs rooms heated up but at least with the big windows some evening breeze helped out.

Surrounding Area:

The views were just stunning.

Nearby Events or Locales:

No towns were in walking distance.

We had to shop almost daily in Rignano sull'Arno which was approx 6km away. The local shops were great but of course we had to get used to their opening times which were not always consistent.

Tips or Restaurants:

A car is a necessity.

Pack lightly as you have to haul your cases up many stairs.

Mosquito repellant in the summer.

Nuovo Rancho and 100 Palms were family type restaurants nearby for hearty Italian meals.

Directions:

A GPS is a necessity for getting around the district as well.

Check In Out:

I would like to commend the staff on their pleasant service.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

A once in life time experience. All our 3 children and four grand children plus visitors from Australia and the USA ( 19 in all) had a fabulous time. Over and beyond all our expectations.

Enjoyed Most:

Its size. Its position up on a hillside in relative seclusion. Opening the windows at night time. It was very hot for the two weeks we there. An unusual heat wave affected the whole of Europe but at night time cool breezes were wonderful. Being able to sit on the patio in the evening. The large swimming pool which adults and children alike spent a lot of time in. The ensuite bathrooms The large dining areas and a great kitchen. The two banquets that Roberta the owner organized for us were wonderful.

Surrounding Area:

The peace and quiet. The ability for joggers and walkers in our group to keep up their morning rituals on quiet roads and pathways amidst the olive groves associated with the villa.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Rignano sull'Arno (FI). It was not within walking distance but it had a small supermarket and coffee shop. Because of the size of the groups we had four cars so that was not a problem. There are other great supermarkets and wine stores within a 35 minute drive.

Tips or Restaurants:

No. Most everything we needed was already available.

Directions:

Some of us had problems getting from the rental car area associated with the Florence airport. It was quite complicated. I think the coordinates we received (GPS Coordinates Latitude 43.738637 Longitude 11.416271) were a bit off.

Check In Out:

Checking in and out was perfect. Roberta and her staff who cleaned every day were wonderful, friendly and courteous.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

The quiet fall views made for a special experience.

Enjoyed Most:

The quiet.

Enjoyed Least:

It was a bit of a drive to reach other places we wanted to see like Siena, Pisa, Volterra and San Gimignano.

Surrounding Area:

We enjoyed taking the train to Florence twice.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Rignango sul Arno was a 10 minute drive where there was a super market.

Tips or Restaurants:

Nuovo Rancho was good for dinner and the local winery had a nice tasting plate. Roberta is a good cook and her lasagna was the best I have ever had anywhere. TAKE BUG REPELLENT. I was eaten alive.

Directions:

Long story but the GPS was with the person who was delayed by a day. No problem with a good navigator BUT we missed the actual property.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Villa Gialla was absolutely spectacular for our group of 18 (7 couples, 4 singles). The private space was more than ample, and the public space was varied and comfortable. The grounds were lovely. The view was unbeatable. Aside from one late night (rather tame) party at the neighbor's house, it was completely serene. Exactly what we needed for our corporate retreat!

Enjoyed Most:

The kitchen was the best part of Villa Gialla. We had a number of amateur chefs among our group, and the enormous, well-stocked kitchen gave them plenty of opportunities to practice their skills.

Enjoyed Least:

The check-in procedure was a bit underwhelming, but I believe that is because the normal housekeeper was away. The lady who helped us out was the daughter of the groundskeeper and she was polite and kind, but a little flustered with the duty of playing the welcoming committee. Really, though, it was such a small thing in an otherwise perfect week!

Surrounding Area:

The surrounding area is quiet and charming. Besides the serenity in the immediate area, we enjoyed the proximity of a well-stocked COOP (grocery store) and well-connected train station, both in Rignano sull'Arno.

Nearby Events or Locales:

We didn't bother walking to town, largely because walking the main street (SP 89 di Bombone, not Via di Moriano) felt a bit like taking one's life into one's own hands. It also was fairly hilly, which was a bit off-putting to some of the less fit members of our group.

Tips or Restaurants:

Be sure to bring a swimsuit, as the pool is lovely (if a bit chilly!). And plan to eat at 100 Palmi in nearby Le Corti at least once; they brought us an onslaught of fresh seafood, local steaks, delicious pizzas, and cheap wine that will have all 18 of us raving for months and years to come!

Directions:

The entrance to the house is NOT at the address listed. The entrance is actually about 100m to the east, on a private road just off Via di Moriano. We used a GPS, which helped us get close; the housekeeper found us and waved us over to the entrance to the property.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We just returned from Italy, and we had a great time! The villa was fantastic and our hosts just fabulous. This was definitely a five-star experience. Everyone said it exceeded anything we imagined.

Enjoyed Most:

Our host was very accommodating and even shopped for us in advance of our arrival so that we had supplies, food and, drink when we arrived. The rooms were very comfortable and everyone had a great view. We spent a lot of time on the second floor patio with a view of the surrounding countryside that never got old. Evenings with antipasto and wine on the patio was a highlight of our trip.

Map

This villa is located just less than five kilometers from San Donato in Collina, a small Italian village with a post office, grocery shops, butcher, and pizzeria. San Donato is located in the Florentine hills, very close to the city itself. After driving for about 20 miles, you will reach Florence, a majestic city world-renowned for its art and culture. Go here to shop the Ponte Vecchio, marvel at the statue of David, step back in time at the Pitti Palace, or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery. Of course, you could also simply relax in the Piazza della Signoria with a book or a refreshing drink. Of course you can also hop in the car and wander through the Chianti, tasting locally made wine and investigating many of the famed hill towns. Try Greve in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti. Day trips to other well-know Tuscan locales, such as Siena and San Gimignano, are also possible.
