About Silvio B.

My wife, Italian and Latin Literature Teacher, and I, industrial manager, after retirement, have decided to rent our property, too big for us, as our sons, now more than adults, live not more with us.

Currently we live in Florence.

Silvio B. purchased this villa in 1948

Guestbook comments from the manager

Sorry we didn’t get to see you before we left your fabulous home, but I just wanted to thanks you for the wonderful accommodations in the hills of Tuscany! We all had a wonderful time, and very much enjoyed meeting you and Paola.



With luck we can return and see you again!

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The villa was as described, all five bedrooms were a good size, and there were plenty of indoor and outdoor living areas. There were 9 of us including a toddler, and we fitted very comfortably into the villa. The weather was warm and we ate all our meals at the table on the patio which is just off the kitchen. There was a gate which meant the toddler was secure in this outdoor area, away from the pool. We enjoyed the space of the large garden, as well as the various activities available - badminton, table tennis, and gym equipment. Silvio and his wife were very welcoming and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and hope to return some time.
