Definitely a Wonderful Tuscan Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 10 nights during our honeymoon and to put it quite simply this place was everything we wanted in our dreams of a Tuscan getaway. Located just outaide the wonderful town of Colle Val d'Elsa its had everything we needed to entertain ourselves with the exploits of our daily adventures. Everything that Tuscany has to offer is all within a short drive. The villa was very clean and everything we could ever need was there. We definitely recommend staying here

Great spot as central location while traveling Italy

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week on our honeymoon.The villa was beautiful inside and out! We used it as a central location for visiting several cities in Italy and it's location was perfect for this way of seeing the country. Sadly we were unaware that the building is shared (although you never see the other family), which wouldn't of been a problem if the walls in between weren't paper thin. We could hear everything from conversations to coughing through the wall, which didn't go well with the days we decided we wanted to sleep in.

Gina was awesome! She was super sweet and was great at getting back to us quickly if we had a question or problem. She even did a wine tasting for us in the Villa which was superb!

Quaint semi-detached Tuscan farmhouse

  • 3 of 5

The farmhouse is located about 1 kilometre outside of town so a brisk 10 minute walk will get you to a great cup of esspresso and a fresh pastry. The town is centrally located with easy access to Firenze, Siena, etc. It was a great place to base our Tuscan travels from.

Don't let the outdoor photos deceive you. The farmhouse is attached to another house occupied by noisy residents. The site of the farmhouse is actually a site for at least 6 other residences. One resident on-site but not attached had barking dogs. That was annoying. The interior pictures were exactly as we found it; however, the beds are old and lumpy. Beware of visitIng in mid to late September because there is no heat til October 1.

Owner's Response: Our guest might have imagined a villa sourrounded by a park..instead of a portion of a farmhouse as well specified in the description of our advertisement.The double beds are new as well as latex matresses. Then there are two single beds that are certainly uncomfortable for adults but our guest had booked for two persons and not for six adults!!!( at the end the guests were 6 adults!!). About the heating, in our municipality is forbidden to turn on the heating in September..anyway during September we have 25 degrees of temperature. We are disappointed of our guest review.

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette magnifique ferme toscane. La maison est chaleureuse et cosy. Elle est très bien entretenue. L'accueil a été également très sympathique et chaleureux. La vue sur les collines toscanes et sur les tours de San Gimignano est imprenable. Nous recommandons sans hésiter !

Sehr schöner Urlaub

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus war sehr schön. Für uns als 4köpfige Familie war es perfekt. Die Betten sind etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig (sehr weich und haben bei jeder Drehung sehr gefedert)

Das Wasser ist sehr kalkhaltig, was man an den Töpfen und Geschirr sehen konnte. Wir haben dann trotz Geschirrspüler lieber mit der Hand gespült, da es sonst noch schlimmer aussah.
