Villa Elisa is far more beautiful than these pictures suggest - seriously, they really undersell just how lovely it is! It is spacious, pretty and has great amenities. The pool area and balconies are a nice touch - the perfect places to relax. The views across the Tuscan countryside are also incredible and Elisa was a joy to work with in organising details of our stay. The property is in a quiet spot, a five minute walk from the town of Scarperia, which has a supermarket, pharmacy, some little attractions, shops and restaurants. Not the most rocking town in the world but pretty and historic. It is a great base for exploring Tuscany and is close to the famous race tracks of Mugello, the famous Medici Villa Demidoff (now a park), Lake Bilancino and the Barberino Designer Outlet. I will say, however, that you are in the Tuscan countryside so you should expect bugs and my father and I were eaten alive by mosquitoes. This is not the fault of the owners but something you should definitely prepare for - bring repellent and antihistamines. Also, there aren't a lot of sockets that can handle laptops or electrical items bigger than lamps or phone chargers, this is a little irritating but a minor complaint within the grand scheme of how lovely this villa is.

Perfect for an idyllic relaxing break

5 of 5
This has to be one of THE most relaxing holidays we have ever had! Fontirosa is set in a simply stunning area in Italy. We loved every second of our stay. We stayed with our two daughters (20 and 18) and our daughters boyfriend (21). We had a wonderful welcome when we arrived, the air was filled with the smell of honeysuckle blossom - gorgeous flowers on the table - some wine and water and a book on the table with every hint and tip in relation to the area that you could ever need. Tina and John were so helpful and kind - the directions that Tina sent us prior to going of how to get to Fontirosa were spot on - we drove straight there from the airport without any hitch whatsoever - the detail in the directions ensured you didn't get lost!! This was our first visit to Italy, and definitely not our last - Scarperia, the nearest small town was lovely - the markets they have two days a week were very tempting and had we not jtravelled with hand luggage only - feel sure a few extra items would have come home with us! My husband, Neil went down into Scarperia every morning to the bakers - the baker didn't speak a word of English, Neil doesn't speak any Italian - but they were so helpful and friendly - they'd trained him in a few words by the time we left! It really was a wonderful holiday - made all the more special by the home we stayed in - it was exactly what we'd hoped for - we couldn't have wished for anything more - and the views!! Spectacular views of a beautiful country. We would not hesitate in recommending Fontirosa to stay at - you would not be disappointed. I honestly didn't want to leave!!! Thank you to Tina and John for being so helpful - it just meant our holiday was stress free and the most relaxing break we've ever had!!
