Magic

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend & I stayed in Villa Sara during our Spring Break, from March 12th-16th, 2017. To say we enjoyed our stay would be understatement. It was amazing. Ricardo was very accommodating, welcoming & helpful. His wife is lovely as well! I wish we spoke more Italian. The land is beautiful, breathtaking & very peaceful. We would wake up in the mornings and sit outside, on top of the hill, it was sunny. We would sometimes sit out there for hours at a time. There's nothing like it. The house is big and beautiful-like something out of a movie, out in the Italian countryside. The photos do not do Villa Sara justice. You have to be there to see how amazing it really is. We had fresh towels, soap, firewood outside (chilly at night), warm blankets, plenty of kitchenware to cook, and there is a big wood-burning stove downstairs in the living room area. There is a giant table and plenty of chairs to sit outside. We loved our stay and did not want to leave. I would recommend taking the cooking class with Ricardo & his family. We regret not doing this because his family is so nice and welcoming. We were quite limited on days and had much to see, and the places were far to drive to. We will definitely come back here and will recommend to everyone. Thanks!!

Lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 days at this property in October. We were in four friends and our stay was very enjoyable. The place is beautiful and was perfect as a base to discover the beauties of Tuscany. Ricardo was very kind and gave us excellent tips on sightseeing and restaurants, especially the road between Taverne D'Arbia and Asciano. The landscapes are spectacular. The house is large so we could have each one's own bedroom. The internet also works very well. We would love to stay a few hours in the pool but it was not possible because it was cold.

Picturesque Hilltop Villa

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 women friends spent the first week of October at this beautiful villa just outside of Siena. The villa was clean and comfortable and well cared for. It was more than spacious for the 4 of us--giving each of us our own bedroom and 3 full baths was a plus. In fact, the house is large enough for a big family or a few couples to share. The living space was great for relaxing and comfortably furnished. Perfect for friends or a family to just hang out or share meals together. We especially liked the location which allowed us to make day trips to Siena, Florence, Montepulciano, Arrezzo and other nearby towns. The people in the nearby town of Casetta were friendly and welcoming. We found two local restaurants that were very good. Riccardo was very helpful, giving us suggestions of things to do while in the area and where to shop for food and supplies.. He even arranged for us to have an authentic Italian cooking class at the villa in the well equipped kitchen where we cooked breakfast every morning. The villa sits on a high hill so the view was amazing. We were so busy we didn't take advantage of the pool, but it would be great for a family with kids or just for relaxing. We would all welcome the chance to go back to this wonderful house on the hill.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have with us these guests. We always try to do the best for our guests so that they can have a wonderful vacation. We highly recommend everyone to try our cooking classes in the house, and wine tours! The house is in a perfect location to visit all over Tuscany, just 2 minutes from the main road, 15 minutes from Siena, one hour from Florence. You can also easily visit Rome and Venice
