Enchanting old house, beautiful setting and welcoming host.

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group which can be tricky to manage but Luca went out of his way to make us all feel welcome. You couldn't ask for a more picturesque setting! The views were breathtaking...perfect if you want to get away from it all and enjoy a truly authentic slice of Italian life.

It was such a nice house. We were super busy touring Florence and Rome, but I wish that I could have stayed a few more days.

A beautiful old villa

Really lovely stay in this amazing villa. Some great period features and large rooms.

Luca was great and took the time to explain a lot about the property and the surrounding area.

Very spacious

  • 4 of 5

We were a family group ranging from a 3 month old to a 89 year old. there is so much room in this villa for relaxing and doing your own thing. All beds were clean and comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped with more than enough of everything, the kettle however could do with up-dating.

The surrounding area is beautiful there is so much to see if you can drag yourself away from the villa

Thank you Luca for helping us out when we needed it you were always available if we had to contact you, we were very grateful that you could arrange transport for us

If we are fortunate enough to return to Florence we would certainly consider this villa again

Wirklich idyllisch!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine traumhafte Woche in der Villa. Luca hat uns sehr nett empfangen und viele Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt gegeben. Im April war leider der Pool noch nicht gefüllt und stattdessen mit einer Plane abgedeckt. Ansonsten wirklich alles so toll wie auf den Bildern! Sehr empfehlenswert!
