GREAT Place! Villa IOLANDA was the perfect place for me and my family, when we decided for a combined vacation and soujourn in Tuscany, in relation to the wedding celebration of my son in a neighbouring villa. Set in verdant plains and lush countryside we were impressed by the pure country air, the singing of the birds, and the elegant and huge villa, a former summer house of wealthy Italian family. Prices are reasonable too. Be prepared for 'self-catered style, but supermarket for food shopping is some minutes drive away. We discovered a spring for fresh water and have used this for drinking, instead of bottled water! Pool is grreat for family. The owner, Madame Barbara Mac Neill, is a lovely lady, down-to-earth nobiity. Thank you for a lovely stay! Greatly recommended. Luz Bergersen, Oslo-Norway.

Bellissima esperienza

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo scelto casualmente villa Iolanda per passarci un week end lungo (4 giorni) e festeggiare con i nostri 4 figli sposati e i 5 nipoti un importante anniversario. Erano indispensabili 7 stanze e 6-7 bagni, la piscina ed una sala da pranzo adeguata e la struttura li offre. Pensavamo che, al peggio, avremmo potuto visitare i dintorni ricchissimi di possibilità: invece non ci siamo mossi da lì, affascinati dalla struttura e tutti i nostri figli ci hanno chiesto di ripetere l'esperienza per poter stare tutti insieme qualche giorno. La villa è un po' scrostata, qualche letto cigola, qualche porta ha chiusure approssimative, ma tutti i bagni sono confortevoli e la villa è pulita al meglio ed ha il fascino delle cose di una volta con l'arredamento che sembra quello delle camere delle nostre nonne. La cucina è perfettamente attrezzata (eravamo in 15) e la sala da pranzo ha un faraonico tavolo dove abbiamo sempre mangiato comodamente e giocato insieme la sera. Gli spazi esterni confortevoli e la piscina (frequentatissima da noi) adeguata hanno consentito un soggiorno comodo, stando insieme senza pestarci i piedi. Abbiamo fatto un torneo di ping-pong familiare. Ottima l'assistenza della proprietà. Se riusciremo a coordinare i nostri impegni ci torneremo

Owner's Response: Gentile Sig. Giuseppe, La ringrazio per aver scelto Villa Iolanda per il suo importante anniversario e per il tempo che lei ha dedicato nella stesura di questa recensione. Siamo molto felici che la nostra struttura abbia saputo soddisfare le sue esigenze ed aspettative. Spero di rivedervi presto a Piano di Casciana e magari chissà.. vedere qualche "nuova leva" battere il pluricampione in carica di ping-pong! Un caloroso saluto da tutto lo staff di Piano di Casciana
