Overall:

A good place to get together with family. We enjoyed visiting the great region of Chianti.

Enjoyed Most:

We loved the outdoor covered table, the fireplace and the large upstairs living room.

Enjoyed Least:

The villa was in need of a thorough cleaning. The mattresses are old and need to be replaced. It was chilly, so we had to keep a fire going (no heating is allowed by law until November 1st.)

Surrounding Area:

vineyards, Castello di Verrazzano

Nearby Events or Locales:

Greve--it's a 10-minute drive by car.

Tips or Restaurants:

Go in the summer time, the pool is magnificent. Must visit Castello di Verrazzano with the tour given by Julian.

Directions:

Used GPS

Check In Out:

Anna was very pleasant to deal with.

Overall:

The visit delivered everything we had hoped for - a true Tuscan villa with lots of history and character.

Enjoyed Most:

Character.

Some of the facilities could be improved - kitchen and showers primarily.

Views, wineries, restaurants, small towns and we were there for the Wine Expos.

Greve, not really. 3kms away down a steep hill

Time your visit around the wine expo. Try the Private Dining at Santo Stefano up the hill a bit from the property

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Lovely and peaceful. Anna was a great host, extremely helpful, and lovely with our kids.

Enjoyed Most:

Beautiful house, lovely gardens. Kids enjoyed the pool and Anna's pets.

Enjoyed Least:

Original directions were tricky the first time but we made it after a few false attempts.

Surrounding Area:

Town of Greve had lots of dinner options. Walking distance to the bus into Florence.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Greti is in walking distance but not much there. Greve was only a 5 minute drive.

Tips or Restaurants:

The main square of Greve has loads of restaurants. Really nice restaurant on corner near the square, diagonally opposite the pharmacy, can't remember the name.

Directions:

We did try to use our GPS but it didn't seem to help that much. We used the instructions and finally found the property.

Check In Out:

Very friendly and relaxed.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We all loved the property and the owner is a lovely person. She really helped us out a lot with translations on the phone etc, and we had a great time with her when she did the cooking school.

Enjoyed Most:

The beautiful rustic stonework and the setting. The general feel of the property was fantastic! We really relaxed there every evening around the outside big table.

Enjoyed Least:

As we didn't have a car we had to walk up the big hill, but if you have a car if wouldn't be a problem.

Surrounding Area:

The beautiful view of the hills. It was lovely and quiet.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The nearest small town was Greti but we didn't see much there. We would get the bus into Greve or we did walk once, which was about 3 kilometres.

Tips or Restaurants:

A mosquito repellent would be good.

Directions:

Didn't use a GPS as we didn't have a car. I think the directions were fair. For people who don't hire a car and have to organize a transfer it might be an idea to let them know that the hill road to the property is gravel.
