Beautiful house. Stylish and elegant. Plenty of room. Enjoying dinner outside watching the sunset. The pool is perfect. You would feel very secure with the electric gates if you have young children.

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We went for a long weekend in July,

A group of 8 inc 4 kids!

The villa is just stunning, beautiful decor, modern but still with Italian traditional features.

Very spacious rooms, 3 bathrooms which is brilliant when you're in a group.

Superb large kitchen area for you to enjoy meals together.

Bedrooms all spacious & main bedroom comes with an en-suite.

Veranda & pool area just beautiful & very clean, a few bugs in the pool but that's expected as you're in the Tuscan Hills..

Eleanor & her mum welcomed us on the day of arrival, they are amazing, helpful people, couldn't have done enough for us, made sure we were comfortable and happy & went through everything in detail which was great.

They guided us to local restaurants & supermarket & the quick route back to the airport to avoid the toll..

they even put a few inflatables in the pool for the kids, they have thought of the simplest thing, i.e a pack of cards, and giant kids games to play..

House has Netflix which is brilliant as it was very hot the kids could come inside & chill out.

The house is gated so you don't have to worry if you have small kids, it's very safe & secure!

It's about 40 mins from Pisa airport so it's not to far at all.

We had a superb superb break in a stunning villa, we would definitely go again :)
