Amazing holiday

5 of 5
We had never been to Italy before this holiday and it was everything we could have hoped for and so much more. Picture postcard views, quaint little towns perched on hilltops and mountain sides, amazing restaurants serving tasty food, pizzas fresh from wood fired ovens, local wines and the peace and tranquillity of a fantastic villa to relax in. We will most definitely be returning but next time for a fortnight. Thank you so much for your kindness Freyja xxx

Excellent accommodation and pool in wonderful area

5 of 5
When did you last meet an octogenarian with the joie de vivre of a small boy, in the best way possible? Mauro, owner of Il Bagnolino, is just such a character and his buoyant Italian personality is reflected - even symbolised by - the hilltop house and garden that he has lovingly attended for decades. The interior of the house is full of charm, especially the spacious dining room, which once housed animals during the winters and retains original features - an ancient, wall-length wooden hay trough - alongside a beautiful table easily seating twelve or more. On a hot Tuscan summer's day, the thick stone walls and traditional shutters provide a cool indoor retreat, and great care has been taken to furnish the bedrooms in traditional Italian style and comfort. Everything was spotless. Il Bagnolino's swimming pool allows breathtaking views over the Tuscan hills to one side, and Mauro's orchard to the other. The height of the house, and its generous wooded surround, means that you really do feel as if you are on top of the world. We sang a lot outside - it's that kind of place! The pool is safely fenced and the gate access is secure for guests with children. Wide steps built into the pool also helped our youngest children. We took five children, and there was plenty to occupy all ages. Other highlights included wood-fired BBQs and evening trips down the track to Anghiari for huge pizzas. Don't let the slightly bumpy ride up to the house put you off - taking your time is part of acclimatizing to the slower, holiday pace of life at the top, and you can spot a variety of wildlife, including just about everything encountered by the Gruffalo, by taking your time. Dusk is best, just perfect post-pizza. There is much to see in friendly Anghiari and in other nearby towns. You can go to museums or just experience the many ways in which its old ways permeate its modern life; Anghiari itself lives its history, so much is preserved along its narrow streets - we particularly loved its wooden doors. Tracey Lega, the agent for the house, is extremely personable and adds to your experience hugely with the wealth of knowledge she has of the local culture. Nothing is too much trouble, and, deliciously, she speaks perfect English, too! Go there, if you ever get the chance!

Holiday of a lifetimw

5 of 5
We had the holiday of a lifetime at the beautiful Villa Quercia. The setting is typically Umbrian/Tuscan and the property itself is lovely. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The heating on the pool meant that it was at a lovely temperature even early in the season before the sun really gets going. Trestina is the nearest town (10 min drive) and has all the necessary amenities with supermarkets etc. Cortona, Città di Castello and Umbertide are all 25 minutes away, very beautiful and with great restaurants, shops and evening entertainment and markets in the mornings. However, there are also closer restaurants with our favourite place only 5 minutes away in the next village. And we loved that we could by the odd item in the little shop in the village. Christina & Richard were fabulous hosts. They were on hand to offer valuable advice on everything from where to eat to the best places to shop (including the best markets to visit). We loved the fact that we could relax by the wonderful pool during the day and that there were so many lovely small to middle sized towns to visit near by. Fantastic!
