Wonderful Villa in the Heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three couples touring Tuscany and found Villa Carolina a wonderful gem located closely to San Gimignano and within easy driving distance to Siena and Florence and the wonderful Chianti and Brunello wine regions.

The owners Gabriele and Lucia were delightful and made us feel at home. The outdoor pool and gardens were well maintained with a beautiful view overlooking the small hamlet of Linari.

To our amazing chef Lucia...we thank you for three wonderful dinners served on the outdoor patio. We would strongly recommend that everyone should experience at least one meal prepared by Lucia...the mille foglie for desert one evening was squisito!

Vila Carolina, vacances de rêve!!

  • 5 of 5

Lors de nos dernières vacances en Italie, nous étions à Villa Carolina, ce qui est tout simplemente magnifique. Située dans les collines toscanes, entre les vignobles et oliviers, elle est dans un excellent emplacement car elle est proche de Florence, Sienne, Pise et à quelques minutes de la merveilleuse ville médiévale de San Gimignano. la courtoisie et la gentillesse des propriétaires Gabriele et Lucia, ont conquis nos coeurs et nous ont assuré que nous reviendrons bientôt. Ils nous ont reçus avec beaucoup d'affection et de gentillesse, ne nous laissant manquer de rien. La Vila a une belle décoration toscane, une piscine ouverte où nous avons fait apéritifs et dîners en profitant du coucher de soleil toscan. Enfin, nous avons passé des jours inoubliables avec nos amis à Vila Carolina, et bientôt nous planifierons notre retour dans ce lieu de rêve.

Great location and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Very welcoming and responsive hosts! They were always trying to help but not intrusive.

Pros: location and the marvellous view, garden, pool and kitchen space. Close to supermarket, highways and many villages.

Also you must book a dinner cooked by Lucia at the villa! The food and the service was great plus you are at home!

You’ll be staying on the lower level of the house which gives you direct access to the garden (Front entrance on the side of the villa). During summer expect mosquitoes... Also, kitchen has no basics like salt, pepper, olive oil, coffee to start... that being said, Lucia rapidly provided us with anything we needed and we had a nice welcoming gift: fruits and 2 bottles of wine: red and white!

Beds can be improved. We felt the springs...

I recommend it

Tuscany retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our favorite part of the stay was the cooking class we had with Lucia and then the dinner she prepared another night! They arranged a Chianti wine tour with Sonya and she took us to three very different wineries! You definitely need a car if you want to explore the surrounding towns as you are in a rural setting with no public transportation. One of our favorite towns was San Gimingnano. Don’t miss Sant’appiano....a 4 km walk ( hilly! So you work off all the vino!) ....call ahead to book a wine tasting at this very small winery. If you travel in the summer months, you need to bring bug spray with you for the mosquitoes. The pool was a favorite spot to relax and we enjoyed dining al fresco. Two couples celebrating out 40th wedding anniversary!

Gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a great location, easy to access lots of great spots with a car. The villa itself has everything you could possibly want and had plenty of room for the 8 of us. We had dinner catered and it was absolutely amazing! Definitely worth the investment. The price of the hot tub was a little more expensive then we would wish to pay but otherwise the villa was perfect.

Perfect For A Week Of Touring Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Only 45 minutes out of Florence, the six of us visited Villa Carolina for a week...what a treat. Gabrielle and wife..Lucia, were the best of hosts, fulfilling any need we had, immediately. Their hospitality helped make us feel part of their family. Lucia, a chef from a five star restaurant, cooked dinner for us on two evenings, and the meal was fabulous, complete with wine and terrific service. We asked for dinner at 8, and at 7:50, the table had been set, linens in place, and a lovely server began the dinner. After each course, Christine, left, and didn't return until we were done with each course. We found it best to have a driver take us each day to different towns, as driving in Tuscany can be "challenging" especially for a group of six. Would definitely return to Tuscany...and to Villa Carolina.
