Thr trip to end all trips

  • 5 of 5

First off, a special thanks to Alessandra, Sabrina,Mirco and everyone else who turned this trip into such a fantastic time.

We had a total of 28 people join us during the month of June. And everyone of the 28 agreed it could not have been any better. The Villa-pool and grounds were just as wonderful as could be. A bit of magic and heaven for all of us. We like to think it's just being with the Kiaune family but the Villa and the surroundings added so much more.

Your efforts and all the others involved made for a great and treasured time.

Marginone is such a beautiful little place and right down the road. It boasts a lovely little pastry shop(expresso,cappuccino etc) an upscale Osteria Fellini a pizzeria with pasta dishes and pizza and a beautiful little Church that my wife fell in love with. We heard Angels sing there. And Montecarlo also right down the road has beautiful shops and restaurants. The town of Altopascio has a rail station and you can easily ride to Lucca and Florence and Pisa.

So Alessandra again thank you- thank you-thank you. Wish we were still there.

  • 5 of 5

"We were five families with little children staying one week in Tenuta Albereta. We just loved the house, the garden and the swimming pool! The place was great also for visiting Florence, Lucca, San Gimignano and of course the Montecarlo, which was a lovely village near the house. Milvia, the housekeeper, was very friendly and helped us every time we needed. The owner was also very nice and friendly and the cooking course was excellent and the wine from the vineyard was very good. We would recommend this place to everyone because it was definitely perfect!"

  • 5 of 5

""This property was rented by my client and his satisfaction was 'exactly what we had hoped for and it was a perfect fit for our family and friends.' The property was set back from the road and there was no noise from the surroundings but yet it was very convenient to the town of Altopascio for shopping essentials and they enjoyed a short walk to Montecarlo which was lovely and full of good restaurants and stores. My clients rented the property for 3 weeks and had ample supplies to host parties with their Italian relatives and guests from the USA. With several cooks in the group, there was never a need for a personal chef, but they always knew that Alessandra would accommodate their requests. The caretaker and his wife were readily available for any questions and needs. Because of an electrical storm the power was suspended until the caretaker quickly solved the issue. My clients used the house as a staging station to explore the area extensively and hence the location was convenient to do so.

As a travel consultant (T'Amo Italia) with many clients, I will indeed offer this property for their consideration in the future. Working with the owner was a pleasure. "

  • 5 of 5

"This was a great villa. Lovely gardens & pool. Really nice rooms. All you would need for your holiday. The village is a short walk away and very friendly with a fab restaurant. Monte Carlo is also within walking distance and is a lovely walled town.

Local wine and food was all delicious.

Its also a great base to visit Pisa, Lucca and Firenze.

Altogether - brilliant!"

  • 5 of 5

"Het rustig op een heuvel gelegen huis met zeer ruime tuin en wijngaard ligt mooi centraal tussen Florence, Pisa en de zee. De omgeving van Marginone is niet bijzonder maar Lucca is zeker een bezoekje waard. Het huis is goed ingericht, alleen de keuken is wat aan de kleine kant. (heb je toch weinig nodig met goede restaurants in de buurt)

De openhaard en barbeque onder het overdekte terras zijn ideaal voor een lange avond buiten, met een wijntje uit eigen wijngaard. Prima service van de eigenaresse en haar sleutelbeheerders/schoonmakers."
