In Love with Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

To say our stay at Villa Vignalunga was magical would be an understatement! The pictures, although very descriptive, don't do it justice. This enchanted villa will bring you to terms with the true meaning of falling in love with Tuscany.

As it is a little bit of a challenge to navigate the road which leads to this amazing place, we were thankful that the hostess, Gaia, is very responsive & helpful to make sure you get there. It is actually located just below Castiglione d'Orcia and the last 250 meters are dirt road. Unfortunately, your car nav system will be of no assistance.

Once you travel through the gate to the villa you transform to a whole other place. The villa is surrounded by lush green hills and wooded area. The interior design is a wonderfully rustic farm home with fresh herbs growing on the terrace. The entire four bedroom 5 bath home is spotless-clean.

The villa is truly a luxurious dream come true. We were blessed that our beloved Papa gifted us this fantastic stay. We upgraded our stay with a chef who provided dinner our first night and breakfast the next morning which was definitely worth the extra cost. Gaia was extremely accommodating to our menu wishes & even took note of allergy challenges. It's really a fairy-tale experience, complete with a pond filled with big white geese, wild deer barking the welcome of dawn & remnants of medieval castles dotting the landscape against the sunset dusk.

Although you can travel to many medieval cities from the villa, we enjoyed several rainy afternoons sitting in front of the fire with a good historical novel and a glass of Proseco... of course!

It should be everyone's bucket list wish to visit Gaia & her tranquil Tuscan tower.

Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

Wow, wow and wow. This has to be the most spectacular home we have ever rented on VRBO. I don't think you can find a home that comfortable and so well designed on the market. the location is also a big factor in making it a spectacular setting. Every single square inches of this house has been designed with tremoundous attention to détails. All the building materials and home furniture have been selected to make us feel like the real tuscan country from another century combined with today's ultimate comfort . We loved this amazing heated salt pool. The radiant cooling system also feels amazing during those hot summer days

The only tricky part was to get there once in Rocca D'orcia...But a quick call to Gaia solved this issue in no time

thank you so much Gaia for having us stay at your house. We will remember our time in tuscany forever

INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed the most spectacular week here! It was certainly the highlight of our trip to Italy. The property is unbelievably beautiful and the surrounding countryside is some of the most glorious I have seen. The house is extremely well appointed with plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed cooking meals in that incredible kitchen and swimming in the pool with the stunning view of the valley. I did quite a bit of research before choosing this property and I couldn't have chosen better. I can't say enough about the beauty and tranquility of this place. Don't stay anywhere else! One note I would add is that it was quite tricky to find. When (not if) you book, I would suggest requesting GPS coordinates. Perhaps even Gaia will consider adding them to the location information.

like vacationing in a fairytale

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Podere Vignalunga with our 3 adult children to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We have traveled extensively to many exotic places and stayed at five star hotels often. The photos on the website, the villa's accommodations and location definitely helped us make the decision to stay here, but our experience was so above our expectations, its honestly hard to put into words.. the host was extraordinary,Gaia helped us book a fabulous Italian cooking and a tour of a local olive oil/winery.

Our family loves to cook, so after every full day exploring the countryside and amazing surrounding towns, we would stop at the market and cook in the villa's large and well equipped kitchen. The adjacent dining room easily seated all of us. After dinner we played games in the living room by the fire, while gazing out at the indescribable view. The villa is strategically located, within 20 minutes of incredible towns. Each day we ventured out and found something new and wonderful. Memories to last a lifetime. We are already planning a trip back in a few years. Love, love, love this place!!!
