Villa Tre Querce, Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

My brother, Gary, and I rented Villa Tre Querce for five weeks starting June 2nd of this year. Obviously, a trip of this magnitude has taken a long time to plan and to execute. It has been a little over a year in the making and turned out even more magnificent than we dreamed possible. If you have rented from VRBO previously you probably have run into the situation where reality of a place isn't the same as the pictures on the website. Villa Tre Querce turned out to be exactly the opposite. The pictures don't do it justice, it is more magnificent than the pictures can portray. The swimming pool was great and got a workout from all of the kids we had visit.

Manlio was there to meet us when we arrived on the 2nd. He gave us the grand tour and answered all of our questions. He introduced us to the young fellow that is the property care-taker and said if we needed anything he could help us as well.

Over the five weeks we had 32 visitors come and go. Manlio came over four times to make pizza for each of the different groups that came in. That, my friends, is worth the price of admission. Manlio is truly a good entertainer as well as a great pizza chef.

The largest groups we entertained were 14, which we did twice. The house held everyone with ease. As you can imagine having crowds like that would seem to be daunting, but it wasn't. The house has as good a kitchen as you could ask for, with two ovens and two dishwashers, all the utensils a professional chef could ask for. The only thing that would improve the kitchen would be a spoon rest!

During our stay we ate zero meals in the house. Manlio had set up the patio to serve 14 and that was where we spent our home time. For those of you inclined to cook, this is the place to do it whether inside or out. The outside grill is wood fired and we hadn't done that in years, but it turned out to be a hit as well. We did Bistecca Fiorentina, the national dish of Tuscany, twice and doing it on wood was fabulous.

For any family looking for a place to use as a base to enjoy Tuscany, you need look no farther. This is the place you need to come to. It has all of the amenities of a true Villa, from the striking 4 or 5 acres of grounds to the elegant interior and the beautiful pool. We couldn't think of a better place.

Manlio and Chiara, whom we entertained at dinner our last night, did everything in their power to make our visit a dream come true. They were the definition of the gracious host and hostess.

Better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

This villa exceeds expectations. Seven adults stayed the last week of May, and we enjoyed the beautifully manicured grounds, splendid gardens, and lovely home. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms for all. Mario (owner) was helpful and accommodating. The view from the back veranda was sensational; we had all of our. meals out there, as well as some naps. We took several day trips to other Tuscan towns,and the location of the property was good for that. Highly recommend.

Wonderful Villa, beautiful grounds and great owners

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure where to begin except to thank Manilo and Chiara (owners) for allowing us to stay in their wonderful home. The property was perfect for our family members (11 total). The 5 bedrooms plus the downstairs area provided lots of space and privacy. The house itself was amazing and the large, well-manicured property gave you privacy from neighbors. There is also a large, long patio and tables to accommodate eating outdoors. Many of the rooms also have balconies. The house has a gated entrance and sits up on a hill overlooking a beautiful valley. There is also a pool, but the pool is unheated and it was still a bit cold so we didn’t use it much. In the summer months it will surely be a nice feature. The groundskeeper (and house assistant) Ramel lives on the property and was pleasant and helpful. He not only keeps up the grounds but cleaned the kitchen and bathrooms twice during our stay and helped serve food on a couple occasions.

Manilo met us upon arrival and showed us around the property. We arranged for 3 meals during our stay (for an additional expense). Manilo cooked us a meal on the first day and even joined us for dinner, a delightful host. He also arranged for meals from a local chef on two additional days. The food was prepared offsite and delivered to the house where Manilo and Ramel served the meals and cleaned up afterward. The property also has an outdoor brick oven and we used it one night to cook our own pizza’s. It was a great evening of family fun.

We arranged for drivers to take us on day trips to many towns and wineries in the area. We were able to see lots of Tuscany and loved it.

You can expect to pay an additional charge for electricity and gas used during you stay. You will also pay taxes on the rental fee. The electric/gas charge will vary depending on usage and time of year with our charge around 400 Euros in mid-May. The only thing that was a bit of a challenge was the hot water. The house is large and has a hot water recirculation system which means it heats water and runs it through the pipes to minimize delays in getting hot water. We were advised by the owner to turn off the hot water heater and circulation pump when not in use (while sleeping and when gone during the day) to reduce electricity and gas charges. Some of the bathrooms had lower water pressures and were a bit challenged to get hot water (only warm), all manageable.

Overall, we’d come back again.! Thanks Manilo and Chiara.

Rent a Mansion Fit for Kings

  • 5 of 5

Remote control electronic gates open to drive up to the house. A care taker lives above the garage. Ramer keeps the multi acre grounds meticulously maintained. The owner and his daughter are lovely hosts and did their best to make us comfortable.

There are three ovens, three dishwashers, two gas cook stoves, wood ovens, two washing machines, wood stoves, pellet stoves and balconies and porches everywhere. Mini-split A/C units in the bedrooms are efficient for cooling or heating an individual bedroom or open the doors and cool the house. The house is ideally situated at the top of a hill just outside the city on the north side. Go north on windy country roads to Chianti, Volterra or many magical hill towns. Go south and you immediately enter Siena. You can spot the stone water tower on the hilltop property from miles away looking across vineyards and olive groves.

Typical of Italy, bathrooms have bidets and tubs although 3 have showers. The hot water is circulated so water is quickly warm at any fixture. I loved the upstairs sun porch for reading on a couch which opens with French doors from the master bedroom. There is a breakfast nook there also. There is an option to eat in the kitchen or a more formal dining room or several areas outside. Furniture was comfortable and nice.

A favorite hill town near by is Castello di Monteriggioni only five miles away. We had dinner there three of the nights because it was easy to park there and beautiful. Downtown Siena is of course magical but requires special driving skills and inventing parking spots or some walking. We did day trips to Pisa, Florence, Volterra, and the Mediterranean.

Some things to know. Energy is expensive in Italy. Since you pay for gas and electric with this rental be aware costs are 4x what they are in the USA. Better to use the wood or pellet heat then central gas heat. The utilities are not a big deal but expect to settle up in Euros before you go. We loved the pellet stove in the living rooms in the mornings. The upstairs foyer TV has English channels. There are two Wi-Fi internet routers to connect to and cell phone service is strong throughout the region and in the house. The Google Translate was a helpful app for knowing what we were buying at the store. What a great vacation. Enjoy a real gem in Siena.

Beautiful villa

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I rented Villa Tre Queres for 3 weeks in August to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Each of the weeks we had different groups of family & friends staying with us. Two of the weeks we had 8 people and one week we had 12 adults. The house easily accommodated all our guests but we did have an issue with the bedroom situation. The basement quarters has one pullout couch suitable for an adult, the other pullout was barely adequate for a child. We had to have the gardener/houseman move a pullout couch from the master bedroom into the sitting room outside the master for one of our guests. The shower in the basement trickled water for 4 days before it was fixed adequately. I had communicated with Chiara for several months about the house but the day we arrived she had left for vacation and we never met her once during our stay. Her father, Manlio checked in on us several times but communication was difficult. The house is advertised as being air conditioned but note that it is only in the bedrooms. It was between 95 & 100 degrees every day and the downstairs would get quite warm. Opening the french doors in the kitchen and out to the terrace provided some breeze but also brought in a constant influx of flies and bees. We spent most of our time on the terrace where there is a long table with several chairs. The chairs are worn, paint chipped and the cushions need replacing. There is a wood burning BBQ but unless you're an experienced camper many people would not be successful in starting a fire or willing to wait 2 hours to grill food. Charming but impractical. The kitchen is extremely well stocked & has two dishwashers. On two occasions we had chef's come in for cooking classes and to prep dinner. We were all coffee drinkers & the espresso machine only used expensive custom ordered pods that Manlio had to supply. We were promised an American coffee maker but it never arrived. The chairs in the kitchen are very unstable and need to be re-glued or replaced. Because of the hot weather the pool was a delightful addition and we used it many days. The pool chaises were adequate but a few more would have been helpful for our large group and the wooden deck surrounding the pool needs some repair. Manlio made us homemade pizza twice which was delightful. A car is a necessity for grocery runs & we used drivers and taxi's for day trips. This was a trip of a lifetime & despite some quirks we had a wonderful experience at Villa Tre Queres.

A most memorable experience, fabulous property.

  • 5 of 5

Would come here again in a heartbeat! The owners were very attentive but not intrusive, there is someone on property to maintain the house, clean periodically, incredibly polite. The owners accompanied us to the Grocery after check in to get us oriented, assist with language and then made a special stop at a bakery. Later that week, the owners arranged for, picked up and delivered birthday cakes for a family celebration, and of course assisted with Pizza Night. We were eight adults traveling together and everyone had the very best time. We used their wood fired grill, pizza oven and all of the amenities, rented Vespas, had a place for our rented cars, went on a fabulous all day winery tour and another day away at Pisa. Strong Wifi and American TV Channels, something for everyone! This was our week to relax during a month long Italy vacation. Siena is a great area for sightseeing Tuscany. Would come back to this villa without questions, pictures do not do it justice. Lisa Bobak
