Review for stay from 12 August 2017 to 19 August 2017

  • 4 of 5

The villa itself is beautiful and in a perfect location. The host, however, was not particularly welcoming, treating us in a very brusque manner. On our arrival, instead of a friendly welcome, we were met with a series of strict rules (do not spill anything, keep villa tidy, do not stain/scratch sink, etc) delivered in a patronising manner. We were also reproached for not having a paper copy of our voucher, instead presenting an electronic version. Our subsequent encounter with the owner was later in the week when her husband accidentally left the hosepipe on by the pool and we were shouted at before having to explain that it most certainly was not our fault. On our departure we were due to pay for the final clean and baby cot (230EUR total). When we gave the owner 2 100 Euro notes, she again shouted at us, telling us that she needed smaller change.

Having said all of this, we did not see the owner for the majority of the week and were able to enjoy the serene surroundings in peace. The villa was in pristine condition and the pool was perfect.

I think the owner could adopt a friendlier approach and could prepare her guests for some of her specific requests in advance (for example, the voucher could state clearly that a printed copy is essential and that the cash payment has to be made in 50 eur notes or smaller). She is clearly very precious of her beautiful property, but her highly strung manner made it difficult to relax at times, which is not conducive to the best holiday experience. Perhaps a more relaxed approach would help make future guest more comfortable.

The Villa is absolutely beautiful with stunning views in every direction. It is the perfect location for visiting the Tuscan towns and only 20 min from Florence.

Ida was a wonderful host with helpful advice of restaurants and sights.

Outstanding location, set among tranquil olive groves with views across the Tuscan hills, and within easy striking distance of Florence, Sienna and Pisa. The owners grow figs, grapes, plums, lemons and delicious tomatoes, and make their own olive oil. Signora has a perfectionist's eye for detail, as shown in the spacious house, which is furnished with antiques. The house and pool are kept spotlessly clean, and she offers much helpful advice about local attractions and facilities, including a great tip about parking in Florence. The nearby town of Montespertoli has all the shops you need, plus restaurants, bars and a wine shop (opposite the supermarket) where you can get your bottles refilled from a huge vat. We bought amazingly fresh and tasty seasonal produce from the green market (Tuesday) and the Farmer's market (Saturday).

Review for stay from 23 August 2014 to 30 August 2014

  • 5 of 5

This villa is wonderful. It is very spacious, extremely clean, and contains all of the necessities for a very comfortable stay. The grounds surrounding the villa are also immaculate and the views are spectacular. It is conveniently located close to Florence and many other popular sites such as Pisa. The town in which it is located is small but contains restaurants and a grocery store (less than 10 minutes away by car).

The property owner's residence is attached to the villa. Although she is quite concerned about her villa (at times overly so) she is also very helpful and a good resource.

The only real drawback is that those with very small children must take caution when on this property as there is dangerously steep hill immediately behind the villa which is unguarded. It somewhat affected our ability to enjoy the grounds but did not affect our enjoyment of the villa overall.

This villa is a great find. We very much enjoyed our stay and would go back if the opportunity arose.

Review for stay from 31 July 2010 to 21 August 2010

  • 5 of 5

The villa is really beautiful and spacious, surrounded by vineyards. View is spectacular! There were 10 of us but still had plenty of rooms. The owner is very helpful and nice, however very afraid about her property. She asked us to pay attention not to make any stains and spots on the floors and marble sink in the kitchen, but at the same time she could gave us fresh tomatoes from the garden. This place is nice for people who like to rest and read. It’s very quiet and 15 minutes by car to the nearest small town.
