Fantastic holiday house

  • 5 of 5

A very large spacious and comfortable house. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating and ensured the house is very well equipped with every amenity. The pool is huge and the garden is charming. There are lots of space to relax and enjoy the property. All the rooms have fan units, anti mosquito devices and insect screens. The bedrooms were comfortable and relaxing.

The only things to be aware of are that one double bedroom can only be accessed by walking through another bedroom and as it's a rural location the wifi signal is weak and could struggle when lots of people were using it at the same time.

Overall we had a great holiday and would recommend this as a great location for a group holiday in the Italian countryside.

Fantastic villa in beautiful Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

This is a very beautiful villa located in the middle of Tuscany.

Easy driving to Siena, Florance and Arezzo but also to the big supermarket in Montevarchi (20 min drive away).

We arrived to the villa on Saturday the 11th of July and had booked Mama to cook us dinner (we were 5 adults and 4 kids). The dinner was amazing italian food, including wine and dessert (we had enough food for lunch the following day).

The pool is HUGE and we spent most of our time (when we were home in the villa) by the pool. Lots of sunbeds and enough space for everyone to find their own little corner here and there.

With all the positive is also a few negatives.

1) The villa does not have any airconditioning, which means the nights are VERY hot. We had a modern fan in our room, which indicated 33 degrees C every night - that is hot. So to compensate the heat, we had to sleep with open windows, which meant we had tons to mosquito bites.

2) The pool was not cleaned during the week, so it was not too nice looking at the end of the week.

3) There is a dog pen built next to the villa. The dogs bark A LOT. Coming in and out of the villa means the dogs are barking continuously. The bedrooms facing the dog pen complained about noise during the night and in the morning. The dog pen should be moved away from the villa.

4. There was transition in the electric appliances in the kitchen so you got shocked when touching the dishwasher, coffemaker etc. when they were on.

The above "negatives" cannot take away the fact that the villa is great and within easy driving distance to wineyards, great restaurants and so on.

Owner's Response: Thank you for having highlighted the negative aspects, so that way we can solve them. 1- we have put a mosquito net on the windows and a portable fan which also works as air conditioning in each bedroom. 2- We have arranged a more frequent cleaning of the pool. 3- I moved the dogs in a fairly distant from the villa pen, so as not to disturb the quiet. 4- The electrician repaired the electrical fault in the kitchen.

Quaint, Real old world villa in Tuscany.

  • 4 of 5

We had stayed at Villa Nava several times over the last 12 years. It gives us great pleasure to renew our acquaintance with the old world Villa. To stroll through the many beautiful rambling rooms and remember the good evenings we spent


On arrival, we had pre arranged to have a traditional meal prepared for us by Mrs Nava. We were wined & dined in style.

Most of our time was spent lazing and reading by the beautiful pool. (The photos do not do it justice.)

Situated between three small towns / villages, we walked the country roads and stopped by for a coffee & pastry in the little shop in Campogialli on the way back.

Dinner, to die for, we had in La Torre, a restaurant in Loro Ciuffena. A glass of wine or Sambuca in the Central Bar while watching the village wind down for the night, was a perfect way to end another great Tuscan day.

We are already making plans to return.

Estupenda opción para conocer La Toscana

  • 4 of 5

Villa Nava se encuentra entre Arezzo y Florencia, lo que hace que disponiendo de coche ( fundamental) en un radio de 90´ como mucho, puedes visitar además Pisa, Siena, Cortona, San Gimignano, Volterra, Lago Trasimeno, etc...

La casa es antigua, preciosa y enorme, está decorada con mucho cariño por Silvia y dispone de espacio para poder disfrutar de ella. Mención aparte el espectacular jardín con piscina y porche. Cerca de la casa ( a 5´) ya hay un supermercado y a 16 Km. ( en Montevarchi) hay un gran supermercado equiparable ( o mejor) a los mejores en España. Como curiosidad para lo amantes de la ropa italiana, a 16 Km está el (famoso) outlet de Prada,

Por otro lado recomiendo el tren para acceder (desde el propio Montevarchi) a Florencia, bueno, bonito y barato, os evitareis muchos problemas con el coche.

Para terminar debo decir que tanto Silvia como su familia han hecho todo lo posible por que nuestra estancia allí sea placentera.
