Our family had a wonderful time in Tuscany. The Villa was a perfect location for travel throughout Tuscany. Beatrix and Roberto were gracious hosts and made sure we were all very content with our villa. We highly recommend staying at this villa, all of the units were very nicely set-up. The actual location is very rustic, with beautiful views of the countryside, olive orchards and vineyards.

Le calme, le charme et le paysage

  • 4 of 5

Une semaine ressourçante à Donnini avec tout le charme des paysages toscans, de la ferme restaurée avec gout, de la présence bienveillante de Roberto. Une bonne adresse.

un excelent souvenir

  • 5 of 5

Très bonne prestation avec une maison propre, agréable, grande malgré que nous étions 6 dans un logement pour 4 (canapé convertible dans la salle avec un couchage confortable de qualité). Le lieu est calme, isolé, piscine agréable pour les journées de repos (sans visite) et grande terrasse ou peuvent se retrouver les locataires pour des échanges autour d'un barbecue. L'accueil de Roberto et Béatrix est naturel est fort sympathique.

"séjour parfait sur tous les plans.

Beatrix et Roberto ont été très accueillants, prévenants et toujours disponibles et à notre écoute. L''endroit est merveilleux ,niché au milieu des vignes et des oliviers, avec une vue imprenable sur la vallée. Les appartements sont vraiment spacieux et très bien équipés ... on a l''impression d''être un peu chez soi ! Nous envisageons très sérieusement d''y retourner, tant nous avons passé deux semaines merveilleuses à Podere Casellina."
