A feast for the soul!

  • 5 of 5

The welcome was fantastic, we felt like family. Such a relaxed atmosphere, nothing was too much trouble. Very clean, pool beautiful with breathtaking views. Centrally located for day trips to Pisa, Siena and Florence, also the smaller surrounding towns, one of which is A Bocheli's birthplace. The horse riding on site was very professional and the horses are beautiful. There is also an opportunity to have tuition from the excellent chef on site. With a pizza evening, pasta evening and welcome party. The way the communal spaces are laid out means you can be private and quiet if you wish or one can socialise with other guests. I can't say enough about this holiday apart from the fact that we will definitely return, along with many others.

A Great Honeymoon

  • 4 of 5

My new wife and I had an absolutely fantastic time at Massimiliano's Pelagaccio.

I booked this villa as it was a reasonable price and seemed to have numerous fantastic reviews wherever I looked.

I originally booked Massimiliano's Diaceronni villa (there are three different villas on Massimiliano's farm), but when we arrived, Massimiliano greeted us with a big smile, and told us that he had somewhere that we might prefer.

I felt a bit nervous as I was being told I was going to get something other than what I'd paid for, but I didn't realise at the time, but this was just excellent service from Massimiliano.

Diaceronni looked great, but there were more families and it happened to be fully booked. Massimiliano took us to his nearby Pelagaccio, which was almost empty, really quiet and the pool had just as amazing views if not better!

The pool at Pelagaccio is also a very ample size, maybe 20m x 15m. As it's on top of a slight hill, you have 360deg. views of Tuscany while swimming.

The apartment was absolutely clean.

Massimiliano happily came and checked how we were later that evening and that we had everything we needed. The complimentary pasta and pizza parties were great fun, a good chance to mingle with others when you want it, we just had to walk 10 minutes through Tuscan fields to get to the main house, quite a treat!

It was a great stay, Massimiliano obviously puts a lot of effort into making your stay enjoyable. He remembered my name and always used it whenever he saw me around. They sent around farm-hands with free excess vegetables that they had from the fields, giving us enough tomatoes for a week!

Massimiliano also gave us restaurant recommendations for the nearby area and one in an old monastery was a great treat for us on our last night.

If you're looking for a good villa holiday with a shared pool, I highly recommend it.

Urlaub wie bei Freunden

  • 5 of 5

Schon das dritte Mal Urlaub auf Podere Diacceroni- und ganz gewiß nicht das letzte Mal!

Die Gastfreundschaft von Barbara, Massimiliano und allen anderen unermüdlichen Helfern ist legendär, die Lage der liebevoll renovierten Häuser einfach wunderschön und ruhig,die Wohnungen sauber; zur Anfahrt empfiehlt sich jedoch ein Auto (kein tiefergelegtes!), da die nächstgrößeren Ortschaften mit Einkaufs- und Ausgehmöglichkeiten sowie Sehenswürdigkeiten für einen Fußmarsch doch etwas zu weit weg sind.

Kinder finden hier ein kleines Paradies, mit den verschiedenen Tieren und viel Platz zum Toben, incl. Spielplätze und Hüpfburg am Haupthaus

Einzig die Kücheneinrichtung ist ein kleines bisschen spartanisch, ein oder zwei kleineTöpfe mehr und eine Kaffee/Teekanne wären kein Luxus, was man mit etwas Improvisation jedoch locker überbrücken kann.

Super erholsame Ferien im Pelagaccio

  • 5 of 5

Wir, eine Familie mit 2 Töchtern (10 und 7 Jahre alt) & Hund haben vom 25.08.-07.09.2012 unsere Sommerferien bei Barbara & Massimiliano verbracht. Nach dem Schreck der langen Anreise bei 35°C haben wir uns hier sehr bald herrlich wohl gefühlt. Dies lag vor allem an der tollen Unterkunft und dem phantastischen Pool. Ebenso haben die tollen Welcome-/Pizza- und Pasta-Partys den Urlaub zu einer richtig tollen Zeit werden lassen. Während die Eltern mit vielen netten anderen Paaren den Wein genießen durften, haben die Kinder ebenfalls rasch Anschluss gefunden.

Villamagna ist zentral gelegen für Ausflüge nach Volterra, Siena, Pisa, San Gimmignano, Lucca, Florenz. Ebenfalls nicht weit ist ein Ausflug nach Vada ans Meer.

Empfehlenswert ist es, sich bereits bei der Ankunft mit einer gewissen Grundausstattung an Lebensmittel eingedeckt zu haben, da die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten etwas weiter entfernt sind. Genauso zu empfehlen ist es Spülmittel, Geschirrtücher und Spüllappen gleich dabei zu haben.

Ansonsten erfüllt Massimiliano einem mit seiner immer freundlichen Art jeden Wunsch.

Wir wünschen den beiden alles Gute und vielleicht "Auf Wiedersehen"!

Viele Grüsse aus der Nähe von Ludwigsburg

Wonderful holidays

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Tuscany at Massimiliano and his wife. The location is very nice with a great panoramic view. The apartment was clean, tasteful and well.

We received a very kind and nice. We miss the daily view of Volterra. The large pool area was created clean and chic.

The events such as the welcome party was just great. We learned in a lot of new people and families know.

The entire family has recovered well and we will be back next year definitely. The system is particularly suitable for families with children.The staff is very nice and helpful. Massimiliano and his wife loving and affectionate. Thank you for the great time.

Car: necessary

Volterra is located in the province of Pisa and lies between the valley of Era and Cecina. Built on a hilly Pliocene ridge 545 meters above sea level, surrounded by two defensive walls, one Etruscan and the other Medieval, it is one of the most important centers of Tuscany, for its monuments which testify 3,000 years of civilization and for its traditional craftsmanship in alabaster whose products are one of Italy's leading crafts. Volterra is not yet touched by the stress of contemporary life and visitors who come to Volterra have the immediate impression of stepping into the past, of being in a particular place with its narrow medieval streets and the enigma of its Etruscan origins. Volterra is prevalently medieval and yet cherishes abundant evidence of the Etruscan period: the Porta all'Arco (the Etruscan gate) which date from the 4th century B.C., the Acropolis, and the defensive walls which are still visible in parts of the town.
