Two couples who enjoy spending their holidays together but also like to have their own privacy and space. This house was perfect! Well appointed, very elegantly furnished and with everything one might need for a cooking lesson. What fun we have had in learning how to make pasta. The owner Anna and her team gave us all the right tips to enjoy the house, the estate where it is located and the surrounding area. They were always there for us and they made our life so easy from our arrival until the end of our holiday (not to mention the welcome basket and drinks we found on arrival!). Our first time in Italy, we were a little daunted of not being able to find our way around in only one week. However everything went so smoothly and the hospitality offered was "luxurious" to say the least. Finally we must mention the fantastic place where the property is located, Arceno, unique in this part of the world and very exclusive. The villa is perfect for two couples but also for a family with two children. Thanks Anna for the fantastic experience. We are looking forward to another week of Tuscan "dolce vita".

We arrived late and had a nice welcome basket waiting on us with food and wine. The villa is very nice and fully equipped with anything you might need. The owners James and Penny were great and continued to spoil us with more wine and goodies. We used the concierge Rita and she helped set up the perfect tours, dinner reservations and cooking classes. The cooking class with Andrea was very fun for our entire family and the food was amazing. The location of the vineyard to Siena and Florence was great! We highly recommend and will definitely look to go visit again. You will not be disappointed.

The house is very comfortable, well looked after with lovely decor and many facilities. The garden is large with plenty of ornamental plants, and a beautiful view out front. We spent a lot of nice moments by the pool terrace, and the weather allowed us to enjoy swimming! The location of the property is excellent, in the countryside in a quiet area near Siena, reachable in 10 minutes. Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, and other charming towns in the area are also quickly reachable, about half an hour! The owner was friendly and welcoming. She provided us with plentiful information on where to buy wine and oil, even organic. We visited the Enoteca Castellare in Chianti, where we had a great experience, tasting wine and Tuscan appetizers. We will recommend this property to our friends, and we hope to come back soon!
