Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful rustic villa located in the heart of the Chianty hills of Tuscany was the perfect setting for visiting some of the most amazing places we have always wanted to visit and more. The Italian family that owns the villa and live right next to it treated us like family and were incredibly helpful in giving us all type of travel information that made are visit even more special. If you are looking for an authentic Tuscany experience this is the place for you. We loved it!!!

My ideal Tuscan experience!

  • 5 of 5

The four women travelling with me to Tuscany and Rome were asked to rate their number one experience. All four said "The villa!". Situated outside the charming little town of Mercatale, the villa is just what you see in the pictures. Gianna and her family live next door in the family home. They were available for anything we needed and even made dinner reservations for us at a local restaurant. The villa is charming with beamed ceilings and tile floors. The plumbing was modern as were the appliances. There is a washer but not dryer, so unless it's really warm enough outside to dry your clothes, don't count on doing your laundry here. The beds were comfortable. It was a little tricky for those staying upstairs to get their luggage up the spiral staircase, but they made it! Don't count on internet. When it is available it's spotty, so just leave your social media at home. There is a COOP market in town that is a full service grocery store. The little town of Mercatale also has a cooperative central building with a bar in the front, game rooms on the side and a pizza parlor in the back. The food and service were wonderful. Take cash, they don't take credit cards.

This was a wonderful location to get to Florence, Siena and the unforgettable San Gimignano.

Gianna provided us with adequate linens. Bring your own bath soap and shampoo: this isn't a hotel! The dishwasher worked great as did the microwave and gas stove. A hair dryer is provided, you just have to add your adaptor. The three bathrooms were more than adequate for us. We loved gathering in the evenings sharing our day over a glass of the villa's red wine which we purchased at a very reasonable price from Gianna.

Would HIGHLY recommend and we will definitely be returning!

Great location, but biting dog. NOT for children

  • 3 of 5

House ok, utensils need upgrading, lawn area for children playing needs severe maintenance. Parking is outside of property which is not secure AND is not under lighting, so quite dangerous at night.

Dog NOT under control, and is very defensive of property, i.e. extemely snarly and attacking. I have two fang marks to prove it. Required one week of antibiotics. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple in our 40's travelling with our 16yr old daughter and her best friend. We used sat nav to get us from the car hire place to the house, and it was late when we arrived due to flight delays. There was a toll of €0.70 to pay on the way (you collect a ticket at one place, and pay for it as you exit the motorway by handing in the ticket). We were greeted on our arrival and shown around. Gianna doesn't speak much English but we figured it all out. Light switches are in random places. Use the yellow button on sky to change it to English. The wifi is intermittent but it was a good excuse for everyone to be on their phones less. The house is very rustic, so don't expect sleek edges and fancy electronics. It's an authentic farmhouse full of nooks and crannies, and we loved it! It was clean and had everything we needed (including washing machine). We enjoyed the upstairs outside dining area, and also the BBQ. We loved exploring all the different rooms and places to sit. The pool was clean and in a secluded area next to a lovely vineyard. The girls were in it all day. There are 2 friendly farm cats, and a dog.

Gianna had bought us cheese, bread, salami and water for our arrival and left us a bottle of their own wine (all of which was very good).

The co-op in town isn't open late so on our first night we found a little pizza place in town, and as the following day was Sunday we went to the larger co-op in San casciano as it was open till 1pm.

From the location we visited Florence, Cinque Terre and Pisa, and Siena. It's in a great position for all. Beware of the toll roads though; carry cash!

Out of all the places we visited, we all loved Siena the best. It was easy to park (Via Esterna di Fontebranda), plenty toilets, not so busy, pretty architecture and plenty places to eat without having to fight through big crowds.

We read the poor review about the house not being clean, and that it's in the valley so there wasn't a view. Honestly, we found the house perfect. And we loved the peaceful location. And I enjoyed lying by the pool and looking at the vineyard.

If I had to look for a negative, I'd say lack of aircon, but there are plenty fans, and once the lights were off we'd leave the doors open.

Don't forget your mosquito spray!

Rather old and very used. Swimming pool totally unusable.

  • 1 of 5

The property was very dirty when we arrived. It looked like nobody cleaned it since the last season. All the equipment were in line with the description, although bathrooms were rather used and not well maintained. The swimming pool practically does not exist and it was good we did not need it because of the weather. If everything is well maintained and clean it could be a nice place to stay.

Be careful, the house is rather in the valley not on the hill. You will not have a nice view from the most of the rooms in the house.

Owner's Response: The house is cleaned for several hours in more people. The house is restored with tipic Tuscan material : brick hand-made, stone wall The hand-made floor also is clean is not polished like a ceramic floor, but it is good and tipic for the house of countryside of Chianti The pool had the winter cover and is open about 10 May it is possible open before if the weather is warm. In this year the temperature in that week was about 2* in the morning. I had to open the heating that I included in the price even if it would not be included, for kindness I have gave them firewood I think that mister Piot has not understand the description of the house, this is a indipendenti house in the country, no a flat in the town The house is similar description and photo like is written in another recession.

"Accommodations were outs...

  • 5 of 5

"Accommodations were outstanding as were the amenities and the surroundings. We were very content with the entire experience. The owners, Giana and Giustino were great and very accommodating and spoke enough English for us to communicate. Overall, it was a great experience and I can not wait to return."
