  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Amazing! Cristina and Enzo were excellent hosts and went far above and beyond to make our stay a special one. The villa is beautiful and has the most magnificent and uninterrupted views of the Tuscan countryside.

Enjoyed Most:

The views!! The pool and outdoor space - which included a grill, a pizza oven, and foosball and ping pong tables. The billiard table inside and the spacious garden room, which comfortably held our party of 16 for dinners.

Enjoyed Least:

There were a few challenges with hot water and internet, but Enzo was quick to do what he could to fix them.

Surrounding Area:

The villa was in a great location - only a few miles from Certaldo and Certaldo Alto which is a classic hilltop village with several nice restaurants. There was also a simple local bakery near Ortimino that we visited almost daily.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Certaldo - not within walking distance. Many restaurants, a large Coop grocery store, and a train station were convenient.

Tips or Restaurants:

Mosquito repellent.

Restaurant recommendations Ristorante L'Antica Fonte, Ristorante Il Castello, Osteria del Vicario

Directions:

Directions were fine. We did use a GPS and it worked because we knew where we were going and where to drop the pin.

Check In Out:

None - Enzo and Cristina made it very easy.

Overall:

Overall the villa was fantastic and the view amazing. Enjoyed that part of the stay in the villa.

Enjoyed Most:

Loved everything about the property. The view, the pool and the quiet surrounding.

Enjoyed Least:

It's important to be very aware of the extra utility costs, which were outlined for us. Beware that all rubbish must be thoroughly sorted.

Tips or Restaurants:

Need to get your own supplies for the kitchen, bathroom and washing before you arrive as there will only be 1 toilet roll for each room and 1 pod for the dish washer and no laundry to do a first wash.

Check In Out:

The check in and check out were great.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Lovely week's vacation with friends and family.

Enjoyed Most:

View, indoor/outdoor living area, spacious interior, many rooms, en suite bathrooms.

Enjoyed Least:

Unclear instructions about some aspects of the recycling (not clear whether paper recycling and trash were to be separate or combined) and not enough room in the trash and recycling bins.

Surrounding Area:

Beautiful views, nature walks, biking, swimming in the pool, proximity to towns in Tuscany.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Nearest small town was Certaldo it was not within walking distance.

Directions:

No problem finding the property--we used "Here You Go" app.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Our experience at Villa Pucci was absolute perfection! The house and view are spectacular.

Enjoyed Most:

The house is absolutely lovely and the view is beyond compare. We spent most of the time sitting out by the lovely pool and just enjoying the view. It was even better than the pictures. Our hosts were so welcoming and friendly. We had a group of 18 and everyone had their own space. There were plenty of bathrooms which was a huge plus! We were never crowded. The dining area was beautiful and we were all able to sit around one table which we really enjoyed.

Surrounding Area:

The house is perfectly situated to enjoy visits throughout Tuscany. We were able to visit a number of the Hill Towns and Florence -- all daytrips from the house. A few in our group went cycling on a few of the days while others in our group hiked on nearby roads.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Certaldo is the nearest town. We enjoyed the huge Coop supermarket for shopping and going into the old town for dinner one night.

Directions:

The GPS coordinates were the better way to get to the house. Google maps led a few folks astray.

Check In Out:

Enzo and Christina are so gracious and are wonderful hosts! They were very responsive and absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Great vacation experience. Setting, grounds, pool, location, view were all fantastic. Owners were responsive, very helpful and available at all times when needed.

Enjoyed Most:

Everything. Very conveniently located to major attractions in Tuscany and Florence. Having a pool with a view out over the hills and countryside was icing on the cake.

Enjoyed Least:

Initial orientation to the roadways (we all had vehicles) and in and out of the area took some doing, but once we got used to coming and going it was easy.

Surrounding Area:

Very quiet around the villa, but centrally located to make day trips to Florence, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano, other hill towns, wineries etc. Sunrise and sunset vistas were spectacular.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Certaldo was the nearby town. Some reviews said it was within walking distance. It is not. Access roads are narrow, and the return walk from town would be several miles up hill. It could be dangerous to try to walk them especially at night. Not much night life in this town that we could see.

Tips or Restaurants:

Had the greatest time at Osteria di Casa Chianti restaurant in or near Fiano, not far from the villa. Max, the owner was most entertaining, and the food was good. Buy toilet paper and bug spray on the way in.

Check In Out:

None whatsoever. Everything went smoothly. Renters should remember that there is a 1,500 euro cash deposit due upon arrival and you pay extra for consumption of water, gas and electricity. We were 11 people, used the heated pool for a week and our use of all of these came to about 350 Euro for the week.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Wonderful villa. The view is spectacular, the villa was quiet, large enough for 13 adults comfortably and very well situated near Certaldo. The rooms were large and comfortable, the kitchen was very user friendly, and the large glass enclosed sun room was great.

Enjoyed Most:

The quiet surroundings, and yet it was close enough to the train to get anywhere you wanted.

Enjoyed Least:

Too small a washer and dryer. That is my only complaint.

Surrounding Area:

Beautiful scenery. In the distance you could see the towers of San Gimignano.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Nearest town was Certaldo. It was not in easy walking distance, about 4 KM to get there. Certaldo is filled with good restaurants (inexpensive but food was excellent). Certaldo has a Coop (large grocery store) and has the train station. The train will get you to Florence, Pisa, Siena and lots of other places, quickly and comfortably. Park the car in train station lot and then ride the train.

Tips or Restaurants:

Everything we needed was there. Try the restaurants in Certaldo.

Directions:

There is no longer is a stoplight at the turn to go out of Certaldo up to the villa. That is now a roundabout.

Check In Out:

Super place. Wonderful owners. We had a cook come in on one night and cook a terrific meal for us. The villa is large enough and quiet enough for more than the 13 of us. The upstairs where the bedrooms are located is quiet even when people are having fun in the sun room. Never watched the TV, did not play pool or foosball, but they were available.
