Wonderful wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

It is a very special place with fantastic vistas, superb facilities and a very well equipped villa. It was a very a very memorable holiday for the extended family. The place had great charm with understated elegance. Lazing around the pool, long walks in the hills and luncheons under the vines!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

When you think about visiting Italy, one of the first places that come to mind is Tuscany for it´s wine, food and cypress hills.

Villa Seccarille´s location is unique as you have limitless view of the horizon from most parts of the property, including the pool and yard, which allow you to organize romantic gatherings or fun family dinners to admire the sunset.

I have visited the property twice and left great memories. Planing to visit very soon again!!

Heaven is a place on earth

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a few times at Villa Seccarille with different groups of international friends, and every time we had a splendid time. The Villa does live up to expectations. We found that the description provided was accurate. If you are sporty, you have miles and miles of walks along the hills, in the midst of nature. If the next day you want to play tennis you have the court. If you want to challenge your friends to a game, you have the basketball court for a shoot out contest. Then you have a tennis table. If you have kids there is plenty of room to kick the football around. If you want to swim early in the morning or have an aperitivo by the pool, you have the pool.

The place is spectacular. Customer service was great throughout the stay and the Villa was squeaky clean when we got there. Locals were marvelous too. It was sunny most of the time, we had plenty of time in the sun, and for the few days it was wet and windy, we spent it playing cards and sipping Chianti by the fireplace.

When we wanted to go for a drink we would go to close-by San Sepolcro, a tiny medieval town where you can do a bit of bar hopping. It felt a little bit like being in Madrid once again. When we wanted to have lunch or dinner out, we found plenty of choices within 5 or 40 miles. Needless to say, the food in this area of Tuscany was great: mushrooms, cheese, meat, pasta and so on. Supermarkets, pharmacies and hospitals close-by were a plus, considering this is an isolated piece of heaven on earth. As me and my friends had a great time there, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking to relax and share some good times with family and friends.

We stayed for a weekend in August and absolutely loved it. The views are magical. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle - the location is stunning and peaceful! We left feeling completely rested and relaxed!!!

I didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

I loved my time at Villa Seccarille.

The sprawling farmhouse is perfect for a relaxing getaway. There's plenty of space to do your own thing and lots of communal areas for drinks and chats (the covered balcony overlooking the pool and rolling hills is probably my favourite spot, but the couches and armchair around the massive fireplace run a close second - especially on a cold night!).

My typical day at Villa Seccarille began with a delicious breakfast – there’s a grocery van that visits the house once a week and an excellent grocery store a ten minute drive away (ask the lovely woman who runs the place to make you a lasagne – you won’t regret it). Then my sister and I would go for a walk, along with whoever else we could drag with us. There are lots of great local walks around the area; my favourite is the two hour mountain hike that takes you up to the gates of an old Italian castle. Once back from the walk the whole family would get together and have lunch. After lunch, we’d lounge by the pool until the sun went down and then we’d move to the upstairs balcony for drinks and dinner.

Mostly we had dinner at the house. Between Mum, Aunt Anna and the woman at the grocery store the home cooked food was too delicious to bother going out much. However we did have a couple of dinners at Locanda del Viandante. It’s a gorgeous old-stone restaurant less than two minutes drive from Villa Seccarille – you can walk there (my dad, my sister and I did) but it’s a bit of a cross country adventure. Ring if you want to go – they’ll open the place up if they know someone is coming.

The food in the area is divine; I swear you can taste the sunshine. Try toast with the local tomatoes, avocadoes and olive oil – it’s a religious experience. The locals are lovely and will go out of their way to be helpful (though I’d advise that you bring an Italian phrasebook with you if you don’t have a native speaker). If you can bear to leave the villa, the nearby medieval town Anghiari is well worth a visit. There are lots of charming local restaurants and walking the cobblestone streets makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time.

So long story short, I can’t recommend Villa Seccarille highly enough. If you’re lucky enough to book some time here you won’t want to leave. We certainly didn’t!

Beautiful Tuscan Secret!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the gorgeous villa in the Fall of 2012 and had a fabulous time.

The description fitted exactly what we found and it was easy to find with our maps.

The property was in great condition, clean and well maintained and the owner was always available for any questions we had.

The house is perfect for a group of friends and family, we stayed for a few days on our own with the family and then opened up other rooms when 2 other couples came to join us and stay.

It is perfect for children as there is plenty of space to run around and enough to keep them entertained - we went for long walks around the property into the hills every morning.

We will not forget the daily meals we had out on the terrace facing the pool and looking onto the hills that surround this place and cannot wait to come back again this year. We highly recommend it!
