Wonderful Tuscan Villa...fantastic for children!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice stay at this Villa! We were there 5 nights with our 3 kids ages 12, 11, & 9. We stayed in the smaller of the two apartments that are offered for rent, which had 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom was very comfortable with a large bed (it seemed close to king sized) and our 2 girls were happy with the bunk beds in the second bedroom. Our son slept comfortably on the couch that becomes a double bed in the living room. Another bedroom for him to have his own space would have been nice but it wasn't necessary. And the convenience of being on the ground floor with a nice covered terrace leading right out to the beautiful pool was better for us than having more space had we chosen the larger apartment above us.

Mario and his wonderful family were all so kind! We arrived to an apartment with several welcome gifts including a delicious apricot tart homemade by Mario's wife! They also gave us homemade jam and olive oil from their olive grove as well as some spaghetti. What a treat!

The area was perfect as a base from which to do day trips to Florence, Pisa, San Gimignano, etc. But we wished we had stayed even longer...we hardly wanted to leave to go site seeing because the kids had so much fun, swimming, playing tennis, ping pong, foosball, jumping on the trampoline, etc. :)

I highly recommend this place...it will meet all your expectations of your fanciful thoughts of staying in a villa in Tuscany!

We were two adults sharing the ground floor apartment, and the accommadation was spacious.

  • 4 of 5

The help, service and attention available from landlady Santina and landlord Mario was outstanding. They were more than generous in providing welcoming provisions that included home-baked fruit tart, fresh fruit, a bottle of their own virgin olive oil, eggs from their chickens and a packet of spaghetti. We were invited to walk freely through the olive tree grove. You need a car to access the nearest supermarket in Lamporecchio. We enjoyed a way-marked walking route on the nearby Montalbano hills, a drive over those hills for a day in Pistoia (free all day parking at Parcheggio Cellini), a return train journey to Florence from Montecatini Terme (free all day parking at the train station). We also made two longer car journeys to the Appenine Mountain areas between Pistoia and Bologna (Parco Regionale Dei Laghi Suviana e Brasimone, and Parco Regionale Storico di Monte Sole). An altogether memorable holiday.

The only negative feature is the hot water system which needs some explaining. You can wait a VERY long time for hot water to arrive in the wash basin or shower in the ground floor apartment. The waiting time is variable (not the same every day), but never quick!

Équipement sympa pour les enfants: piscine, tennis, tennis de table, babys foot, trampoline,...

Encore merci pour votre accueil.

Superbe endroit et hôtes charmants

  • 5 of 5

Appartement fonctionnel et très propre, correspond tout à fait à l'annonce. Les propriétaires vivent sur place et sont très sympathiques, petits cadeaux à l'arrivée, fruits et légumes du jardin et précieux conseils sur les restaurants et visites de la région. La situation est idéale pour visiter les villes d'art de Toscane, toutes à courte distance de la location.

Enfin, chouette aménagement extérieur très apprécié des enfants: piscine avec plongeoir, tennis, tennis de table, baby-foot, balançoires et trampoline... Bref, nous avons passé de très belles vacances à Lamporecchio.

Encore merci pour votre accueil.
