Buonasera from Antonietta Russo. I'm native of Genoa where I live but Tuscany is my second home and where my heart is!

The villa was more impressive in person than the pics on line. Beautifuly located on a hillside overlooking the Tuscan region with mountain range in the background. The grounds were impeccably kept with flower beds and plants. We enjoyed the private pool and the various outside eating spots. Close to Sienna, Florence and San Gimignano.
Antonietta was a wonderful host and took care of all our needs. We hope to return one day.
Excellent stay in the heart of Tuscany
We have just returned from a week's stay at the villa with our grown up children and can recommend the accommodation and location very highly. A relatively short drive from Pisa airport and in easy reach of many places of interest, there was just too much to do in a week.
The pool was wonderful and we made full use of it when we we not visiting other places. Even a couple of days of thunderstorms did not spoil our holiday. Thanks to Antonietta for her welcome and kindness.
Lovely house in beautiful Tuscany
We enjoyed our stay at the villa San Pietro. Antonietta was a charming host and very helpful. The house was spotless and the pool a welcome feature in the heat . It was wonderful to have the place to ourselves. However the house is VERY close to the road with cars,trucks and motorbikes flying past at all hours. If you are a light sleeper beware. The proximity ot the road probably 2 -4 metres not apparent on the website. Beds in 2 of the rooms also Very poor with very hard sagging mattresses. Not good enough for the price paid. Otherwise the house was very lovely and we enjoyed our stay
Wonderful stay at Villa San Pietro
We had a wonderful stay at the villa! Antonietta and Serena were very helpful both before and during our stay. The villa and the garden is so nice, and our kids loved the swimmingpool. Everything was as described, and on arrival the villa was superclean. We loved every minute of it, and hope to come again.
Great house in an amazing setting!
Upon arriving at Villa San Pietro we were met by Antonietta who was so friendly, sweet and helpful, she made us feel welcomed at once! The home is beautiful and nicely furnished with breathtaking views of the hills of Tuscany. We appreciated the quiet setting with the ever present cockoo bird in the background! Having each bedroom with its own bath was especially welcomed! We met Serena on the second morning and she provided us lots of information and suggestions, throughout our stay she was available to help will all our needs. The location was perfect, allowing us to shop nearby in Montaione for house needs as well as centrally located to many Tuscanny sites, Florence, Pisa, San Gimignano, Volterra to name a few. The "house book" offered other locations that we found interesting, to nearby restaurants as well as lots of information to guide us through our 2 week stay. We were sad to leave the house and hope to return again. Thanks to both Antonietta and Serena for welcoming us and for all their help in making our stay so wonderful!
Lovely stay at a fantastic villa
We stayed at the villa for a week at the beginning of June. My wife and I together with our two daughters and their partners. The villa was lovely, well equiped and exactly as described. The pool was great and everything was in tip top order. There was plenty of crockery etc to be able to only run he dishwasher once a day. The location was brilliant, not only was the view fantastic, it was also within easy driving distance from Florence, Pisa, Siena and all other Tuscan sites of interest. We had three meals in different local restourants which were all excellent and affordable. Antoinietta was lovely and answered all our emnails promptly before the holiday. All of us had a great time and we could find nothing to complain about.
The villa is only 5 min drive to the centre of a town with shops and restaurants. There is no public transports from the villa so a car is essential. The road to the villa is fully paved and lit up. It's a secondary road and although some cars would be passing by, these can only be heard, not seen from the outdoor dining area or pool from where you will have open views of the countryside.
