The villa has been renovated superbly while retaining its original character. The decoration and furnishings are perfectly in keeping with the age of the property and yet it has all the modern conveniences you could wish for......wifi, Netflix, air con, etc etc. The linens were crisp and white, the towels soft and fluffy! And there was ample china and cutlery so that we never ran out. The gardens and pool are both large and well maintained by Lucciano who was there twice everyday but never intrusive. Our only regrets are that we didn't discover all the lovely outside lighting till the last night! Our fault...Daniela had told us where the switch was! Finally Daniela was so helpful throughout the whole time, from when we booked till we left. She recommended Antica Pieve and Menchettis for meals out both of which we visited twice. And we used the services of the chef on two evenings which worked really well for us. We have been staying in villas across Europe for the last 20 years and Villa Frassineta is undoubtedly one of the best!

Aware that it can be hot in August, I had looked for a villa that provided areas of shade, as well as sun. This was a place which did just that. The pool area was beautifully landscaped with cypress trees, lemons growing in pots, as well as greenery that had been trained overhead, yet there was still plenty of sun. It was a particular favourite of the two young children in our group & also much enjoyed by the adults too. The seventeenth century farmhouse is situated on several levels and has stunning views in all directions - rolling hills, cypress lined driveway, a castle on the horizon - the epitome of Tuscany/Umbria. The kitchen is well equipped, a wonderful bowl of fruit and welcome pack greeted us. There was a choice of a number of seating and eating areas both inside and out. The meal provided by Cinzia & Luciano was superb & definitely to be recommended. A wall of books lined the sitting room, contributing to the atmosphere of knowledge and history conveyed by this lovely old farmhouse. Bedrooms were rustic yet very comfortable and bathrooms provided all we required. We felt privileged to be the occupants of this beautiful old house for a week & could gladly have stayed for longer. Sylvia, the owner lived in the nearby barn & was there to answer queries. She booked meals at the local restaurant for us & even took two of us to a jazz concert in the local square one evening. The surrounding countryside is truly idyllic, we really enjoyed walking its gravel tracks through fields of sunflowers, tobacco plants, vines, tomatoes & more, as well as up to Lippiano castle. At almost every turn, there was a fantastic view. The extremely hot weather during our stay meant we preferred to stay close to the pool & in the immediate locality, rather than venturing to the bigger cities, yet there are many interesting and atmospheric small towns nearby. We came, as three generations of a family, to celebrate my significant birthday and to make memories of good times spent together. This wonderful villa, its accommodating owner and stunning surroundings provided the perfect backdrop. We left feeling that we'd love to return in the future.
