  • 5 of 5

Overall:

The villa is beautiful. There is plenty of space, with large bedrooms and modern, large baths. The outdoor area is fantastic. Big, covered porch, a patio area by the pool, a grill and an outdoor oven. The view is fantastic. It feels remote, but is still within walking distance to Subbiano.

Enjoyed Most:

The size of the rooms, the view, the outdoor space. Proximity to town with restaurants and shops, also the best gelato at Cremeria Stella.

Alessandro was fantastic. Helpful and available for check in and check out and in between.

Surrounding Area:

The villa is on a vineyard, with olive and fig trees, various herb plants...the vineyard is on a hill and the views of the sunset over the hills is beautiful. The house is up a hill from a small neighborhood with quick access to roads leading everywhere you'd want to go.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Subbiano and Corleone. Both within walking distance. Subbiano has a market on Monday mornings which is fun. They also have a great butcher shop and right down from that is a small market with good produce. There is also a fantastic gelato place called Cremeria Stella.

Arezzo is a 15 minute drive and is a beautiful town; the train station is very accessible with parking right next to it. The parking there is public, so a good place to park to visit Arezzo as well.

Tips or Restaurants:

Flashlights if you're going to walk up from dinner in town at night. Look up how to use a stove top espresso maker before you leave....very easy to use, have the teapot next to it with hot water and you can easily make your own Cafe Americano!

2 local restaurants we tried were Corte dell'Oca and Taverna Dei Briganti...both were great. Little English spoken, but very easy to figure it out!

Directions:

We used the daily 10 plan from Verizon, which allowed us daily to use our American plan for text, data and phone usage, without roaming or additional charges. The Google Maps function worked great all throughout our stay in Tuscany. The cost was the same as a GPS from a rental company and the plan gave us calling, other data and texting as well.

There is internet service at the villa, but slower than what we're used to here in the U.S.

Check In Out:

Check in and check out was seamless. There is a book with a local map and various things to do and see with recommendations.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Our time at the villa was very relaxing and comfortable. The location was great - easy for day trips to the hill towns in Tuscany.

Enjoyed Most:

How easy it was to settle in. We also enjoyed the pool and being able to eat meals outside.

Enjoyed Least:

Kitchen was small but was not really an issue. We were expecting to be more out in the country - not quite so close to other houses and a busy road.

Surrounding Area:

Walking around the property.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Subbiano, and it was easily accessible by foot or by bike.

Tips or Restaurants:

Sunscreen was important.

Directions:

Directions were good. We did use a GPS to get to the area from Rome.

Check In Out:

The process was very smooth. Alessandro was a wonderful host and helped to make us feel at home.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Eight of us had a lovely stay. A convenient location for touring Tuscany, and very comfortable for relaxing and enjoying the ambiance of Toscana.

Enjoyed Most:

Size of the villa with plenty of room for 8 to 10 folks. Very comfortable and pleasant.

Enjoyed Least:

In the midst of an August drought in Tuscany we had one night without running water. It soon recovered, but after a day of touring many of us were hoping for a shower.

Surrounding Area:

Arezzo is an interesting small city. And there are grocery stores and very excellent restaurants, immediately in the area.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Yes, the villa is just up the road, a very nice bakery provided morning pastries and coffee. Grocery stores required a vehicle.

Tips or Restaurants:

Consider providing one's own electric (European) coffee pot. We replaced an aging and scary toaster. Stove top Mokas for 2-4 espressos are all that are available.

Directions:

Used GPS, which was helpful.

Check In Out:

Checking in and out was very easy. Alessandro was most pleasant and helpful and communicated very well. He was helpful throughout our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Villa Sasso was stunning and Alejandro could not have been more warm welcoming. After a day of exploring, it is was always the best part of the day to "come home"!

Enjoyed Most:

We liked the fact that everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom. The views were "picture perfect" and the hosts were extremely gracious.

Surrounding Area:

Within an easy day trip to Rome, Florence, and Siena as well as many other beautiful historic sites. And many great wineries!!

Nearby Events or Locales:

Subiano. Yes, it was possible to walk into town.

Tips or Restaurants:

The restaurants listed in the self-guided tour were excellent. A highlight was a prearranged tour through www.verytuscany.com and nothing could compare to the private dinner at Villa Sasso prepared by "Mama"

Directions:

We did use a GPS and found it helpful.

Check In Out:

Alejandro was there to greet us when we arrived. Checking out was effortless.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Everything about our stay was outstanding. The villa is elegant and comfortable. The vineyard, pool and grounds are pleasant, and the view from the veranda is picturesque. Alessandro is a superb host. He is well known in the village and his restauranteur friends were extremely accommodating to us. His mother cooked wonderful Tuscan dinners for us.

Enjoyed Most:

Beautiful location, interesting architecture, elegant comfortable decor with modern conveniences.

Enjoyed Least:

Internet access could be upgraded, and access to the washing machine could be improved.

Surrounding Area:

The lesser know hill towns of Poppi and Anghiari were real treats. The restaurant at the top of the hill across from the castle in Poppi was excellent (no English) as was the castle. The Vicar's Garden restaurant in Anghiari has awesome views from the city wall.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Subbiano is a nice village in walking distance and very convenient to the villa. There are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores. The short river walk along the Arno is nice and passes the castle which has been converted to apartments. The two restaurants nearest to the villa are excellent.

Directions:

Use coordinates on GPS.

Check In Out:

Could not be any easier.

Map

The property is 900 meters from Subbiano, a characteristic Tuscan village on the left bank of the Arno. Here you will find a Monday morning market, and if you're traveling in September you may be in time to join with the locals in their celebration of the grape festival, with product tasting and other traditional activities. The Museo dell Casa Contadina (farmhouse museum) is worth a visit, and you should also keep on the lookout for the remains of numerous water mills along the banks of the Arno. However, you'll probably spend most of your local hours exploring Arezzo, the charming town used as the backdrop for Roberto Benigni's "Life is Beautiful." Once one of the most important Etruscan cities, today Arezzo is beautiful for an array of architecture spanning centuries, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheatre and the Medici Fortress. The first weekend of each month brings a popular antique fair, while annually there is a festival called "Joust of the Saracens," where all of the citizens dress in medieval attire and knights representing each part of the city charge at a target representing a Saracen king. The area is also well-situated for day trips throughout Tuscany. Florence can be reached in 30 minutes by train from Arezzo; a train to Rome takes about an hour and ten minutes.? Nearby Attractions: Subbiano (outdoor market, annual festivals), Arezzo (Etruscan ruins, antique fair, shops, restaurants, markets, post office, bank), Cortona, Lake Trasimeno (beaches, water sports), Florence Florence airport: 80 km/50 mi Florence: 70 km/43.5 mi Lake Trasimeno (beaches): 45 km/28 mi Cortona: 40 km/25 mi Arezzo: 10 km/6 mi Subbiano: 900 meters/2,952 ft
