We bought the house in 1996 and restructured it completely. We then built the bungalow with all amenities. Our family speaks 9 languages in all - we welcome people of all origins and cultures and do our best to make you feel at home.

FRANCESCA CAVIGLIONI purchased this bungalow in 1996


If you love the sound of the crickets, owls and other birds in the evening, the view of the setting sun in the Tuscan hills and the feel of the balmy wind in the afternoon to keep the heat from scorching too much, then you will enjoy the peace and quiet of the green surroundings around a magnificent pool with sun chairs and maybe a glass of white wine from Pitigliano to prepare for an evening in a local restaurant or at the water's edge by the sea .

What makes this bungalow unique

If you enjoy swimming, you will make the most of our 12 metre pool and its powerful jet of water to relax your muscles!

Lovely villa set in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

The villa is approx an hour and a half drive from Rome Fiumicino airport. It's set in beautiful, rural Tuscan countryside with amazing views and sunsets.

A rental car is definitely required to get to the villa and to explore the surrounding area.

It has a large swimming pool (a lot bigger than in the photos) which has steps at the shallow end and a diving board at the deep end, which the kids absolutely loved. The owners live in the main house right by the pool and the villa is a separate building located to the side. The villa was spacious enough for the five of us and had air conditioning which is a must. It consists of two bedrooms, bathroom, living room (with TV) and a small kitchen.

The villa owners were very helpful and knowledgeable, and were always willing to give us advice and tips. They do own a dog which our kids were a bit wary of at first but soon grew to like him. The villa is surrounded by olive trees, also they make their own olive oil.

There is a supermarket about a 10 minute drive away.

Mosquitos were a problem and they certainly took a fancy to my wife!! So a tip would be to take some anti-mosquito spray away with you.

If you're looking for a peaceful holiday then I would recommend this villa.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and the villa was very spacious. There is everything you could possibly need and the beds were comfortable. The pool is large and clean with a diving board - 3 metres at the deep end. Also has plenty of seating around the pool with lovely views. There are plenty of lovely towns and villages within 30-45 minutes' drive with stunning scenery all the way. Places of particular interest are the thermal waters at Saturnia but take water shoes as it is quite stoney, and Pitigilano which is built into the hillside. Francesca and her family were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back again.

Perfect Authentic Tuscan villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was spacious. We are a family of four that travelled from the UK to find a mixture of authentic Italian (Tuscany) countryside to relax in. The pool was amazing & so was our weather ! From this perfectly tranquill base we managed to visit the beautiful village of Marsiliana, the port of Monte Argentario, the many beautiful beaches of Tuscany to watch the sun down, the lovely town of Orbetello, the City of Rome, the beautiful town built into the italian hillside of Pitigalino, the lakes of Bolsena, Siena & Pisa. If your happy to drive these excurtions are achievable in a day. We thoroughly enjoy the peace & tranquliity of the pool at the villa on days where we did not wish to travel. Francesca & family were lovely & helpful in anything we needed & even gave us chairs & umbrellas for the beaches. The island of Giglio is a must as a day trip! beautiful. This has been an awesome much needed holiday for us all & Francesca & this villa comes highly recomended. Thank you ! We will hopefully be back.

Sehr ruhiges, gut klimatisiertes Haus mit riesigem Swimmingpool

  • 4 of 5

Wir, ein Ehepaar mit einem Hovawartrüden,

waren vom 26.05.-23.06.2018 in Marsiliana.

Wir haben im wesenlichen das Haus so angetroffen, wie es bei FeWo-direkt beschrieben war.

Das Haus der Besitzer befindet sich mit auf dem sehr großen Grundstück, was aber nicht störend ist, da diese sich sehr zurückhaltend und zuvorkommend verhalten haben.

Ein absolutes Highlight ist der grosse, ungechlorte und saubere Swimmingpool zur alleinigen Nutzung, in den sogar unser Hund hinein durfte.

Ein wenig getrübt hat den sonst sehr schönen Urlaub die Tatsache, dass auf dem Grundstück ein mittelgroßer Rüde der Besitzer seinen Wachpflichten nachkam und leider mehrmals mit unserem angeleinten Hund aneinander geriet.

Gegenüber Menschen ist er sehr frundlich.

Zusammengefasst eine gute Empfehlung für die südliche Toskana.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your postive review. We are so glad that you (...and your dog!) enjoyed the swimming pool. We are always happy to welcome dogs on the property. We regret our two male dogs did not always get on together but nature will have its way! We look forward to welcoming you again next year. Francesca Caviglioni

Mixed feelings about this comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

Very nice bungalow with a large covered terrace and a magnificent swimming pool on a very quiet location in the countryside.

There was one problem only. The guests before us had a dog and the hairs were everywhere. After we cleaned the house and put away all the rugs we had a very pleasant week. The lady of the house acknowledged the dog's hairs and apologized. But later she insisted that the cleaning lady had worked for four hours in the house. Anyway, she forgot the floors, the area around the toilet and the rather greasy shelves in the kitchen. An awkward situation for us all. A pity that we didn't see the lady anymore, not even when we came to say goodbye. The man is very friendly and helpful with many tips.

The hot springs at Saturnia are really worth a visit as well as the old medieval town of Pitigliano which is famous also for its white wine. Sorano and Sovana are two enchanting towns built in the rocks among the Tuscan hills that should not be missed.
