Luca purchased this cottage in 1994
To be able to share with the world the 'magic of this place.
The property is of great value, for years has been the home of the peasants built in the early eighteenth century. At the 'beginning of the twentieth century has become a tobacconist (place where the tobacco drying) until the mid-twentieth century. Then with the 'import of Cuban Cigar in Europe the house is back to being the home of the peasants.
Silence, relaxation, typical Tuscan landscape, infinity pool, large garden with fruit trees. Amazing view. Tuscan Cuisine
We loved staying here! The property is absolutely beautiful (and if you're a runner, there are miles of country roads to run on with fantastic views) and Luca and Letizia are fabulous!! We had a HUGE thunderstorm one night that caused a few issues...a quick text to Luca, and he came right out, and had everything fixed and perfect in under an hour! at 9 o'clock at night! The location of this property is also fantastic! It's walking (or super quick driving) distance to San Rocco a Pilli- which has a grocery, a yummy restaurant, coffee, etc.- which is so convenient. It's only a half-hour or so from Siena, and centrally located to so many places! We rented a car and did afternoon/day trips to Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Chianti (for fabulous wine-tasting at Luca's recommendation), and San Gimignano . It was absolutely wonderful, and meeting Luca and Letizia was a highlight of our trip (and their adorable bulldog William : ).
We had a great Tuscan vacation. Luca and Letizia were kind, bright, and knowledgeable of all of the area. They knew the best wineries, sights, and routes. Their home was spacious yet quaint, the views were tremendous!
The propery is a lovely villa with beautiful views and excellent facilities. Luca and his wife are amazing hosts who cannot do enough to ensure you have the perfect stay.
Our journey to Italy was massively delayed and Luca was still up at 2am to help us locate the villa in the middle of the night (I wouldn't advise travelling in the dark if this is your first visit) and he made sure we were settled in ok.
The location is also convenient for all the major sites in Tuscanny and it's a shame that we didn't have longer to take full advantage of this property.
We can't wait to visit again!
Our family and friends stayed at this Tuscan villa during the summer and loved every minute. This Tuscan Villa is a fantastic getaway in the countryside. The owners, LUCA and Letisha were fabulous and helped with everything we needed! It sits close to a small town/village where you can make daily visits to pick up groceries and other items. The swimming pool was refreshing considering the heat of summer in Italy. The grounds were well kept and the rolling countryside magnificent! I would highly recommend this villa and hope to return some day. Thank you LUCA for everything, All our love, Maria, Keith, Karen, Dave, Margot and Dave!
Staying at this villa was the highlight of our stay in Italy. The villa is superb, and pictures do not do it justice. The location just out of Siena is perfect, it is an easy drive into town to see the sights, and a great place to base yourself to explore Tuscay or just relax around the beautiful villa and the pool. The owner Luca went out of his way for us beyond our expectations. He met us at the train station, provided valuable local tips, and on one night he and his lovely wife Leticha cooked Woodford pizzas for our family and the family in the adjoining villa...was a great experience. We were a family of five travelling from Australia and stayed for ten days. Would re-book in a flash a recommend to any family or friends travelling to the area. Than you for the great experience and hospitality Luca and Leticha.
We booked I girasoli for the second week of our holiday, the first we spent with friends celebrating my wife's 40th birthday and we had a feeling the second week might be a bit of an anti climax. However, we fell in love with I girasoli straight away, the villa is beautiful and Luca has done an amazing job incorporating the old with the new. The gardens are stunning and so is the infinity pool, we had fantastic weather and the pool was fabulous at the end of the day. San Rocco a Pilli is right on your doorstep and although small has everything you need, also Siena can be reached within 15 minutes, I'd recommend parking at la Fortezza, really easy and fabulous views of the Duomo and St Catherine's as you drive in. All the main towns are very easy drives and we would definitely recommend a day at the beach at Castiglione della Pescai.
A huge, huge thank you to Luca and Letizia who could not have done anything more to make our holiday anything other than superb. We will always remember the amazing evening you took us to San Galgano and also for taking us to Castellina in Chianti for wine tasting at your friends vineyard......we really feel we made some new friends and hope to visit you again in the future......grazie di tutto, ci vediamo di nuovo.
