Perfect home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the upstairs apartment with our two children and it was perfect for us. We traveled all through Europe that trip and this villa in the heart of Tuscany was our favorite part. We rented a car for the week and simply took day trips to all the different near by towns. San Quirico D'Orcia is full of cafes and restaurants. There is a Coop grocery store as well for everything you need. The food and the wine was fabulous at every restaurant we went to. At the villa we appreciated the fresh fruits, veggies and eggs that where left for us daily. We felt right at home here. It was great having a washing machine and a full kitchen to use, especially since we were traveling for a month. I hope have a chance to visit again.

Charming Tuscan home

  • 5 of 5

In March myself, husband, 2 children (age 9/12) and mother stayed for 2 nights at this beautiful Tuscan farmhouse. From the early planning stages of our trip, Rossano was a pleasure to deal with! Quick to respond and helpful via email. When we arrived in San Quirico, he met us in his car and we followed him to his rental. He showed us around and answered any/all questions. He showed us his quaint wine making room and let us enjoy a taste of beautiful rose right from the stainless steel barrel! Then, Mama showed up with a delicious homemade fruit torta to sample. I fell in love with the place immediately:) We stayed in the upstairs farmhouse which was tastefully decorated, comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. It is a very quiet and serene location and I only wish we could have stayed longer. One night we even had a barbeque dinner which was wonderful. San Quirico had a great grocery store for everything we needed. We explored Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino. I have travelled all over Italy and this is by far one of my favorite locations. We hope we have an opportunity to return some day and spend more time. I myself am a VRBO owner and when I book on VRBO I have very high expectations when dealing with other owners and staying in nice places. If I could give Rossano a 10 star, I would. I highly recommend this will not be disappointed! Grazie Rossano e Mama!

Best, Cindy

Tuscan hospitality at its best.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation exceeded our expectations as previewed on their web page. It has been tastefully furnished ,well equipped and within a ten minute walk to the walled city of San Quirico. The house is surrounded by Vinyards and Olive Trees, which makes for a perfect setting for Alfresco Dining.Good restaurants,Bakeries and Supermarkets are close by. There are many beautiful towns to visit including Bagno Vignoni for it's Thermal Spa, Pienza and Monticchello for the magnificent views of the Tuscan Countryside.

This two week stay in Rossano's accommodation formed part of our 3 month tour of Europe by car. We are so pleased we chose this accommodation.

Thank you Rossano, Taechinee, Mum and Dad and all the family for extending their hospitality

to include us at the dinner following their wedding. This was the highlight of our stay and we wish Rossano and Taechinee a long and happy life together. This accommodation is highly recommended if you are looking at staying in this area.

The perfect villa to explore Tuscany from.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have had the best time in Italy. Picking this farm villa near San Quirico d'Orcia was a great decision. The two units here are beautiful with tile floors, modern bathrooms and a kitchen supplied with everything you might need. The outside areas were wonderful for cookouts or just sitting in the sun. The views of the vineyard, olive grove and surrounding area makes this a peaceful place to stay. The town of San Quirico was about a ten minute walk which was very convenient. My husband loved the access to the bikes here and he explored many of the trails surrounding San Quirico.

Rossano and his Family made us feel like a loved member of their family. They welcomed us with a nice basket of their farm products and wine. We enjoyed the wine and bought a lot more over our stay. We were able to participate in the grape harvest and got to see the start of the wine making process. We were also here for olive harvest so we were able to do some olive picking and then go with Rossano to the olive press to watch the olive oil pressing processes. The family also invited us to three wonderful dinners that Mama cooked which we enjoyed immensely. Rossano was not only a great host but a great friend as well. We enjoyed our talks with him and he was always helpful. He let us participate in the farm activities and we learned a lot from him. He even helped us book a Brunello winery tour and then drove us to Montalcino for the tour and brought us back later in the evening.

We came and lived in the villa for two months (Sept and Oct). It was wonderful to unpack and stay in one location. This home is located in an area where we could easily take day trips to everywhere we wanted to explore in Tuscany and Umbria. We went on wine tours and lunches at vineyards. We explored hot spas both natural and the resort type. We drove over to the beach twice and explored the Maremma region. We took a Hot Air Balloon ride over Tuscany.

September and October are great months for festivals in the area so we went to as many as we could. We went to a wine festival in the Chianti region, a chestnut and mushroom festival near Mount Amiata, a cheese festival in Pienza and the thrush festival in Montalcino.

Driving around Tuscany you will never run out of amazing views and quaint hill top villages. We have been here for two months and I still haven't seen enough. We will greatly miss Tuscany and our Italian Family.

Where the vacation of your Tuscan dream begins

  • 5 of 5

Please do not let my delay in writing this review reflect on the villa. It was more fantastic than I imagined and nicer than the pictures. I was there for the month of October 2013 and had different combinations of visitors. I never asked the year the villa was built but it was decades if not centuries of stone and wooden warmth. The gift basket on arrival with homemade treats was such a delicious welcome!

Although the bathrooms are not listed as ensuite the location and door arrangements make them essentially that way. I took the room with the full bed. The windows in all rooms are awesome – I want them in my mountain home someday!

The working vineyards and orchards in such a beautiful setting should be enough...but it only begins there. The xx century building is just so 'dream imagined', yet wonderfully modernized to provide for all of your comforts.

I was so fortunate and blessed to be there for a month and spend part of it with girlfriends who had their own 'twin bed room', then another girlfriend and her husband who pushed them into a king bed with room for their toddler son's crib (provided), and when they all left my husband and I enjoyed the place to ourselves. Rossano's Mom and Dad (if I could kidnap her I would take Mom home with me in a minute), sister and and brother-in-law, and no way to forget his niece La-ura :)

From SIM cards and telephone service to allowing us to work in the olive orchard picking with them, to taking us to the local olive press with the olives, if you can dream a better vacation than we had then you have quite an imagination. Oh me, at the times we called with one issue or any another (all of our own making or desires), and either Rossano or Marisca (both speak wonderful English), were there to fix it.

And or the proximity to anyplace you want to go with crazy good places to eat and explore. The train station at Chuisi is 45 minutes away and I could eat everyday (and did many days) eat at Dante’s near the Old Town entrance. San Quirico is the quintessential town you see in the Tuscany pictures and the surrounding scenery that we see on calendars with the tall spire trees, olive orchards and vineyard are everywhere around you. Just crazy beautiful.

Love at first sight and a lasting memory.

Our best home stay in Italy!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights at this wonderful Tuscan retreat, and it couldn't have been better! The apartment was spotless and well equipped. Linda loves the special touches like the lace trim on the towels and table cloth. But the thing that made this stay special was the service and attention given us by Rossano and his family.

We were welcomed with a goody basket of home made wine, olive oil, marmalade, 6 fresh eggs from their chickens, and a bunch of other stuff like coffee, chocolate, tea, etc.

The property is located just a 10 minute walk from a delightful little medival village with an abundance of good restaurants and shops. The town is centrally locate within easy driving distance of many villages and spas. We were traveling by bus, and with Rossano's help, it was quite easy. We highly recommend this stay.
