A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

What can I say. We had the most amazing time at Villa Carol. There were 6 of us ( all family) & enjoyed every minute of our stay. . The property is stunning. Everything exactly as per the description. Spacious , comfortable & homely. We used to keep Villa Carol as our base and do Road trip's , Explore Tuscany & surrounds. Being ideally located everything within an hour and a half drive. Back in time for sundowners & dinner to enjoy the lovely landscaped garden.

A lovely supermarket close by which has everything we needed.

The hosts Gabriele & Lucia were wonderful. Took really good care of us and we're always there to give us tips & advise , what to do / eat / sightseeing etc. Extremely helpful!!

We hope to return soon!! Thank You once again for an amazing experience:)

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of us stayed at Villa Carol for 7 days and enjoyed every minute! The outdoor area is spectacular! The view over the neighboring town, the pool area and covered patio areas are fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the villa. The owners were very gracious and welcoming. We had the opportunity to have the villa's wife (Lucia) cook two wonderful Italian meals for us. The accommodations throughout the villa are very nice and comfortable. Great place for a family or friends to stay; ideally located to several different area cities/towns. We loved every minute of our Italian vacation. Thank you Gabrielle & Lucia for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa.

Beautiful Tuscany !!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to spend a week at Villa Carolina in Linari just next to Poggi Bonsi. Perfect location for spending your days sightseeing and wine tasting. Lots of things to do within an hour to two hour drive. The villa is nicely appointed. We never cooked but noticed that they had just about everything you would need to do so. We had Lucia cook for us twice - wish we had her cook more!! We always had hors d'oeuvres out on the patio and dinner was served at the outdoor eating area. Lovely, lovely !!

Lucia made reservations for us at a lovely restaurant our first night - can't remember the name - fabulous food and service. It's local so I'm sure this is a place she recommends on a regular basis.

If you need anything or have any questions, just ask Lucia. She's a delight !!

Very comfortable for two couples, however, it could very easily hold a family traveling together. Hope you enjoy your stay at Villa Carolina as much as we did. Cin Cin......

Fanastic Villa, Pool and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa with lots of room, great to have a bathroom for each bedroom as we had a party of 6 adults. Air con in all rooms which was welcome in the middle of summer. We used the pool everyday along with sun terrace area. The covered BBQ area was used everyday and had the wonderful 180 degree view of Poggibonsi and the hills beyond. Gabrielle and Lucia were a lovely couple, very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend Villa Carolina and will be booking again soon.

Villa Carolina

  • 5 of 5

Villa Carolina was wonderful. It easily accommodated 3 couples with 3 bedrooms and bathrooms. The grounds and views are lovely. The owner Gabrielle and his wife Luccia have a home on the property but they are not intrusive at all. A highlight was the night Luccia cooked an amazing dinner for us and we ate outside in the gazebo. Close to San Gimignano, Chianti area etc. we highly recommend Villa Carolina.
