I never thought I could literally "fall in love" with a vacation rental, but I did.... The views from this impeccably maintained villa took my breath away....every single time I looked out the window. The villa itself is a piece of art, masterfully renovated, spacious, comfortable. Cristiana, Sergio, and Elena were there to answer any questions, and sincerely want you to have the time of your life. From this home base we explored Florence, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano. We had a chef come to the villa and prepare a dinner for us. The restaurant 50 yards away was a great choice for an evening as well. About a 10 minute drive to the supermarket, a very scenic 10 minutes. Don't let this shining star slip away if your dates are available!! Critiana, Sergio and Elena, thank you for sharing you piece of art!!
Perfect Tuscany Villa, Perfect Location
The Barn and Guesthouse were the perfect setup for our family. The views were beyond words. We stayed one week but would have loved to stay another week. Perfect for day trips to Sienna, Pisa, Lucca, San G, and Poggio. We arranged for a personal chef to come and host a pasta making class and also arranged for a driver to take us to Chianti wine region for a day. This will go down in the books as the best vacation location so far!
Fantastic Stay.... Beautiful Tuscan Countryside Villa!
We really enjoyed our stay at this home. The owner was fantastic with all of her communication. She has an on-site property manager and English translator who help with check in and check out. The home itself is quite luxurious and I don't believe the pictures do it justice. Sergio and Elena who help the owner locally are lovely, friendly people. The price point is reasonable and while you do have to pay for cleaning fees and gas and electricity they are very clear about this from the onset. Even when you factor these costs, the rental is still reasonably priced.
As far as location its very close to San Gimignano and located on a hill with a dirt road which in my opinion adds to its charm. There is a restaurant/hotel literally across the street and numerous wineries in the area. It's located between Siena and Florence which made it ideal for exploring the area.
Thanks Cristiana for a lovely stay!
Perfect Tuscany Location!
My wife and I stayed at Val d"Elsa during our five days in Tuscany. We could not have been more pleased. This Villa was the work of an inspired family to make the perfect place to enjoy their wonderful country. The pictures do not do it justice, as is often the case you really have to see it to appreciative the facility and of course the unbelievable view! It is conveniently located to many of the sights you would want to visit and my wife and I took advantage of being able to make short trips around the wonderful Tuscany area but return to our beautiful villa to enjoy. Christinia, the owner, does a great job of communication and of offering advice on restaurants, and other sights in the area. The view of San Gimignano from the living room window is worth the visit.
A special treat was getting to know Sergio, the caretaker. He was such a pleasant personality that I looked forward to his visits. More importantly, he was very helpful and you could tell he loved the villa and wanted us to have a wonderful experience.
My wife and I would highly recommend this location. If our travels ever take us back to this area, we hope that we can stay there again.
Our stay was incredible! Everything as per pictures, Sergio and Elena were very helpful!! Would definitely recommend this place ! You can’t get a better view or place than this!!
Amazing home with breathtaking views!!!!!
This home was one of the very best properties that we have had the pleasure of renting with VRBO. The house itself has been thoughtfully and beautifully renovated with exquisite details. The views from both inside and out are magnificent. We cannot say enough about how helpful the owner, Cristiana, was in the planning process for our trip to Tuscany. Her directions and suggestions for the area were spot-on. Sergio, the manager of the property carefully and fully explained all the inner workings of the home as well as giving us its history. This is a hidden gem and we only hope we can return again some day in the future. If we could give our experience 10 stars, we would!!!!!
