sergio panchetti purchased this Villa in 1970
Why sergio panchetti chose Montespertoli
Year Purchased: 1970 It is located in one of the most beautiful and quiet locations in the area on top of a hill surrounded by a ring of hills around. Because of its position every view from the villa in any direction is really fantastic. The villa is at the centre of the triangle Florence-Pisa and Sienna so in more than half an hour drive you can reach the most important towns in Tuscany. For who loves golf there are two golf clubs in the area. My grand father bought the villa in 1970 so I grew up here and since that time I loved the property and now I am happy when guests enjoy theyr stay here
What makes this Villa unique
Many of my guests love to stay and have their meals in the large garden behind the villa whose many big trees provide shade and fresh at any time of the day.

enjoyed our stay
This home was beutiful inside and out. Our view each morning was breathtaking. Our host was very accomodating. We enjoyed the countryside and Venice and Florence while staying here, as well as local dining and nearby wine tasting. Sergio and his family provided us with information and was kind enough to arrange for car service and tours. This accomodation was very clean and well stocked. Thank you again Sergio for letting us stay in your beautiful villa.
Thanks Nancy for your great review.
Wonderful setting, 12 Km to a well served train station, 120m walking to a well known winery, with on site sales. You can stop for dinner in the Montegufoni Castle if you want and there's grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance in Baccaino and Montagnana. The owner and family are the best and the Villa had everything we needed, ... just open all the doors and let the scented Tuscan air put you to sleep. If its too hot take a dip in the pool, we never used the air conditioning. This is a gem of a place with excellent value so very close to Firenze, Pisa and Siena by car or train or bus.
Thanks very much Bill, for your wonderful review; I couldn't expect it so much.
And thank you for highlighting what a guest can appreciates in his holiday in my home.
A dream come true.
Our family of 6 arrived frazzled from weeks of touring.Sergio and his villa i leonie was the perfect paring to restore our spirits. The quiet, idyllic location provided us with relaxed family time, which was a major aim of our European travels. The very comfortable villa & grounds , was both large and clean, which enabled our four kids to enjoy the big pool, play family card games in the open space lounge room and chill out in their privacy of their own bedrooms, very important for teenagers ( and parents! ) The villa is nestled amidst vines and olive groves and overlooks hills, studded with beautiful Tuscan housing. Our family enjoyed many a meal on the terrace that overlooks the beautiful Tuscan landscape, we all agreed that the location gave us our authentic Tuscan experience.
Sergio is a non-intrusive host who cheerfully met all our needs. We had car trouble and Sergio cheerfully & efficiently organised a mechanic to attend us at the villa, which saved us hundreds of Euros. Thanks again Sergio.
Sergio is a thoughtful man so I enjoyed his observations about Tuscan society, local government and the Italian economy.
The villa is ideally situated for day trips to all major Tuscan attractions. After visiting teeming Florence, our return to the haven of Sergio's villa immediately settled our travel nerves. As the kids loved the pool and the short walks to the local shops we actually decided not to venture out on two days which rested the kids ( and us ) so that our trip days were all the more enjoyable.
Reflecting upon our time at villa i leonie our family agreed that the combination of location, spaciousness of the villa and the personality of Sergio added up to a dream come true. We recommend Sergio and his villa as the perfect place to relax and enjoy an authentic Tuscan experience. As regards our other family rentals we decided not to file any other reviews as they simply did not meet our expectations so Sergio was the exception, hence our review.
We are planning another return trip to villa i leonie which confirms our delight with the villa. So to all who read this review, rest assured that your time with Sergio and his villa shall fullfil your expectations.
Thank you for your kind words of appreciation; you can not wish for a better reviews and comments.
Your satisfaction for the villa and your stay made me very happy too, because the satisfaction of my clients is also mine.
You will always be welcome at the villa.
très bonnes vacances familiales
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine de vacances avec nos enfants et petit-enfants début août 2011.
De la terrasse d'une des maisons, la vue sur la campagne toscane est magnifique, plus belle que sur la photo! Les 2 maisons sont très confortables, les chambres spacieuses et les salles de bain sont très jolies.
Tout est propre et facile à entretenir. Le propriétaire est très serviable et nous a apporté ce qui pouvait manquer à la cuisine, car les vacances ont été touristiques et gastronomiques! et aussi sportives.
Idéal à 14 ou 16 pour visiter la Toscane, Florence en particulier, et profiter de la piscine et de la vue. Il faut utiliser les 2 maisons.
Très jolie maison calme, propre, avec vue exceptionnelle, correspond à la photo du catalogue.. bien située pour faire des virées dans toute la Toscane.
Pretty calmed surrounding. Quite well located in the Firenze / Pisa / Siena triangle. Nice and dilligent owner of a spacious house. We really enjoy the stay and the house. Gracias
