Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Really wonderful place for a relaxing week. The view from the hill the Villa sits a top is exceptional, even for Tuscany! Easy drive to Florence or Sienna. All the local restaurants are fantastic. Air conditioning and a dip in the pool if it gets too hot! Would definitely recommend!

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The location and the property itself was better than we could imagine. We are a family from Finland with 12 adults and 5 children, the house was perfect for spending time together and also for privacy. Well equipped, everything working fine and smoothly.

un vrai bijou dans le chianti!!

  • 5 of 5

Que dire si ce n'est que tout était PARFAIT.

Accueil par Patrizzia souriante et dévouée qui nous a préparé un superbe diner au cours de notre séjour.

Une maison où il fait bon vivre (on se croirait dans notre maison de famille) Très confortable avec tout ce que l'on peut souhaiter.Enfants et petits enfants ont profité de la piscine et du grand jardin très bien entretenu et sans risque.

Bref un vrai moment de bonheur que tous ont souhaité renouveler.

Un grand merci Piero pour votre gentillesse et pour nous avoir permis de vivre ce moment d'exception.

Une villa parfaite pour les grandes tribus

  • 5 of 5

La villa salivolpe est une grande demeure très agréable, et permettant de passer un séjour agréable à plusieurs. Chaque chambre dispose de sa salle de bain, la pièce de vie où l'on peut se réfugier quand il fait trop chaud est vaste, la vue sur les collines du Chianti est magnifique et le propriétaire est très aimable et disponible. Nous venons d'y passer une semaine en formât grande famille, avec trois générations différentes, et tout le monde est reparti séduit. Bref une bonne adresse !

Villa à Recommander...

  • 5 of 5

La Villa Salivolpe est très spacieuse, très bien équipée et confortable pour une famille de 18 pers. ou 3 appartements séparés. Elle est située dans un endroit merveilleux au calme avec un panorama incomparable, vue sur les vignobles, cyprès et entourée d'oliviers. Les jardins et piscine sont bien entretenus. Proche des villes d'arts que nous avons pu visiter. Magnifique séjour que nous espérons réitérer prochainement. Félicitations aux propriétaires.

Rest, Culure and Landscape

  • 5 of 5

The view all around the house in really heartbreaking, in fact even better than we could imagine from the pictures on the web. I particularly liked sitting on the backyard, with the view on San Casciano and the "Le Corti" Castle.

Furniture and all internal arrangements are very cozy: you easily perceive that the owners also live the house as the guests do.

I'm an historian, so we picked this place because it seemed strategically placed to visit many interesting places in less than 1 hour drive, but we eventually ended up spending half of the time just there, to enjoy the pool and the yard.

The only (minor) shortfall I noticed is that the path from the parking lot to the entrance is pretty dark at night, you might consider adding some garden light to facilitate those who like coming back late...

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your nice comment. In fact your point on the dark path is well taken, we always wanted to install a couple of lamps over there, and we will shortly do it. Thank you for reminding us!
