Holiday in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 weeks in the Timo apartment and loved every minute of it. It was very clean, well maintained and very well equipped. Everything you needed was available. The other thing I was impressed with was the binder telling you how to operate the washing machine, the tv, etc. The pool and deck area were wonderful and the pool was kept spotless.

Leandro and his father were wonderful to deal with, any question was dealt with promptly. The location is good for sightseeing and there were some good restaurants and a great winery down the road. I will definitely stay here again and I'd recommend this apartment for anyone thinking of coming to Tuscany

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

We were in the Timo apartment for 8 days. It was a really good apartment with reasonable price. We came a bit later than we supposed to come, but it wasn't a problem even that Leandro had a work day ahead of him next morning. We have two children who loved the pool that wasn't too big but still good for the reason that is was meant to be. We all spent a lot of time in and by the pool. The owners were really nice and we had long conversations with especially Doriano who worked there in the mornings. I have been studying the italian language I had a great opportunity to learn more and use it with him. He is also very nice person and kind. He also brought some Panzanella one morning. The property situates in the place nearby many interesting cities and we visited Siena, Firenze, San Gimignano etc. Thanks for everything!

Paradise in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 6 night stay at the converted barn. The apt was spacious, clean, and very welcoming. The grounds had lots of open space, a swimming pool, fishing lake, gated entrance, plus three hungry donkeys and a loving cat.

It was centrally located and we took day trips to Firenze, Siena, San G, Volterra, and Chianti. Grocery shopping was nearby in Poggibonsi, where prices were very reasonable.

The owner was very nice and even met us the first day on the road when we got lost driving to the apt. (It was our fault we got lost not his!). We saw Leandro several times during our stay, and also his father and father-inlaw....they were all putting finishing touches on the beautiful new pool.

The lower unit was lovely as well, and could be rented together for a great family retreat. We hope to return one day and stay here again.

Gorgeous Private Estate in the Country

  • 5 of 5

Nestled outside a quaint village in the heart of Tuscany, this peaceful property offers a slice of heaven. From the moment my wife and I entered the gate we appreciated the beauty and comfort of this special place. The house itself is built of stone. It has large wooden arched windows that swing open for a wonderful view of the opposing hillside where a new vineyard has been planted. The view of lush greenery is enchanting. The property has a private lake that is loaded with fish and a half dozen turtles that were about a foot in diameter. The fish gathered in throngs to get the bread crumbs we threw in the lake from the overlooking deck. The turtles were hard pressed to beat the fish to the bread, try as they might. We fed carrots to Lola, Natalie, and Stella—the three resident donkeys. They seemed good natured and healthy. We truly enjoyed our discussions with the Owner, Leandros. The house has two two-bedroom apartments, that are tastefully decorated. We had everything we needed to cook meals and live in comfort for the 10 days we stayed there. We loved the arched stone walls inside and the stone floors. There was a large wooden table to spread out books, breakfast, and brochures on. Our biggest regret was having all this room to spread out, but no children and grandchildren with us to enjoy it as well. Our goal is to bring our extended family to this lovely home and take over the whole house. We thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. It’s easy to fall in love with the beauty and serenity of this location. Thank you, Leandros, for sharing your home with us. We’ll be back.

Amazing jewel

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property. This rustic beautiful home with all updated conveniences. Along with it's owners was worth the trip. We didn't want to leave. You must have a car for getting around to all the hilltop villages. The market Pam was a few miles down the road in poggibonsi. Don't forget to buy carrots and apples for the donkey's. The cat also enjoys sharing your evening snak by the pond. My only complaint is pillows. I prefer feather. We will definitely be coming back. I suggest walking down the street to Tenuta Torciano Winery call make a reservation for the Silver lunch its 25e lunch and wine. The entire family makes it such a fun afternoon.

Beautiful apartment, stone floors, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, perfect for a small family or a couple. A minute from Ulignano, twenty from Poggabonsi and San Gimignano. Worth the stay. Leandros is friendly, honest, and helpful about everything.
