Lovely views from Tuscan hilltop villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and his parents and I rented Michele and Elisabetta's place for one week in late September. Even though we arrived late in the evening, the owners waited for us and greeted us with a bottle of wine, a jar of pasta sauce and pasta, so that we would have dinner if we needed it.

The location was lovely - quiet and rural, and fantastic views from each room on the upper floors, yet it was easy to get to many of the Tuscan highlights. We visited Florence, Siena, Perugia, San Gimingnano and more - all easily accessible day trips..

It was plenty of room for us (it's a perfect space for two families with three or four children among them), and was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was fairly well equipped (it did not have a cutting board so we bought one and left it there).

While the weather was warmer during the day than anticipated, the evening air did have a chill in it. We had wanted a property with a fireplace to relax in front of for the evenings we were "at home". However there was no firewood provided, though I believe the hosts would have provided it if we'd insisted on it.

Our security deposit was return as promised, in cash as we were "checking out".

We would definitely visit again, and would recommend Elisabetta and Michele's place to others.

Great Tuscan Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for one week in April, 2015. The property is very clean and spacious and had all the amenities. We used this place as a launch point to discover Tuscany, making day trips to Florence, Pisa, Luca, Bologna, Parma, Sienna and others. The owner is very friendly and helpful and met our every need. We especially enjoyed the welcome basket she provided. I highly recommend this place for families or small groups.

Immaculate and refreshing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for one week in mid August 2013. The property is located on a very quite neighborhood on a hill over looking breathtaking views of various farms and villages!! The property is very clean and spacious and we enjoyed the medieval design that is nicely preserved. We found, though late a beautiful restaurant in the neighborhood priced very reasonably. Check flyers in one of the drawers in the living room. Very friendly owner and staff. I highly recommend this place for families or small groups who plan to explore Italy by car.

Fabuloso ! Marvellous stay, a dream.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday: surroundings are beautiful with olive groves and vines and the little burgo of Brugnano (with clock tower you see from bedroom window), a dream! The house itself is magnificent, relaxing, large and has all the commodities you need (coffee makers, pots, pans, washer etc). Owner and employees were there to help all the time if we had questions or needs. We miss it already. We were two Canadian couples. Perfect location to explore area (Florence but also many medieval towns). Wish we were still there. Thank you Elizabeta!

Magnifique endroit

  • 4 of 5

Michele et Elisabetta nous ont accueillis magnifiquement dans leur belle demeure.

Typiquement toscan, faisant parti d'un très bel ensemble architectural d'une église, le logement est grand, original, bien agencé et équipé, parfait pour 7 personnes.

Le petit moins est la luminosité du logement, un peu sombre et le jardin pas attenant au logement... dommage car celui-ci est magnifique au milieu des oliviers.

Le logement se situe entre Florence, Sienne, San Gimignano... Pise n'est pas très loin également. Nous avons pu visiter ces belles villes avec un grand coup de coeur pour San Gimignano. Et de nombreux restaurants typiques toscans sont à quelques minutes en voiture.

Je vous recommande ce logement pour de beaux moments en famille ou entre amis.
