Beyond our expectations!
Staying at Villa Carmignani was one of the best parts of our trip to Tuscany. It was just far enough outside San Casciano to feel like we were in the country, but still close enough to run into town easily. The views all around were astonishing. It really looked like a postcard.
The house itself was in great condition, nicely upgraded wherever needed, but still retaining all the old touches. One thing that might help to understand, is there are actually 6 bedrooms. But one is in between two others, so it doesn't have its own separate entrance. But there is also a tower bedroom, which was pretty cool too. There are 4 full bathrooms as well, 3 of which are en suite. There is a powder room downstairs too.
It is worth mentioning that the bedrooms have screens on the windows (except the tower), and there are fans in each room. So nice to keep the mosquitos out!
The wifi was really good, which is pretty unusual in Europe based on our travels. The kitchen was nicely equipped with plenty of dishes and lots of cooking stuff. Plus an American coffee maker, which we appreciated. You will need to bring or buy all supplies, including salt, pepper, sugar, etc.
There is so much room in this house to spread out with a big group. We ate breakfast at the outdoor table in the morning, had happy hour under the big oak tree, and ate dinner in the room with the fireplace. It was chilly, but Sabrina was nice enough to bring us some firewood and we built a cozy fire each night.
It was too chilly to spend time in the pool, but I can see it being great for hot summer days.
One night we had two ladies, Lina and Moira, from ChefInTuscany.com (Sabrina's recommendation), come over and cook an amazing dinner for us. That was definitely a highlight!
Sabrina was so great to work with right from the start. She responded quickly to all of our inquiries beforehand, as well as while we were there. We got to meet her mother, daughter and father too! They gave us two bottles of their wine, Lunatico, which is made right below the house, and we loved it so much we bought two cases which we drank over the 10 days we were there.
I really recommend this villa if you are looking for the quintessential Tuscan country villa. We would love to return if we have a chance in the future.
We were thrilled to read your comments, thank you very much for taking the time to write such a thorough review.
It is extremely rewarding for us that our guests have a good holiday, we really hope to have you here again in the future.
Traumhafte Villa in perfekter Toskana-Lage mit riesigem Pool
Die Villa Carmignani ist ein Traum. Altes, perfekt restauriertes Landhaus inmitten von Weinbergen und Olivenhainen im Chianti Classico-Gebiet. Große geschmackvoll eingerichtete Zimmer. Und ein riesiger Pool. Das perfekte Ferienhaus! Die Vermieter sind äußerst freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir (2 Familien mit insgesamt 5 Kindern) haben unseren Urlaub sehr genossen.
Thank you for your comments, it was a real pleasure to have you here, we'd love to see you here again!
Authentic Tuscan Retreat in a Beautiful Setting
The property was well maintained and very clean and in good condition, including the pool. The property is not air conditioned but there are fans for your use. Be sure to bring your own hair dryer. They have provided an electric American-style coffee pot, you have to be creative with finding coffee filters, or bring your own. There is a very convenient grocery store in town where you can get anything you might need or want for your stay. The owners were very friendly and had a handyman available to address any issues or concerns. The grounds are beautiful, we spent every morning and evening relaxing while looking out over the vineyards and olive trees. We wanted to stay another week--We will return someday! The perfect Tuscan retreat!
Thank you for your beautiful review and most of all thank you for giving us the input (upon your departure) about writing the history of the house. We are happy when our guests enjoy the villa and we’ll be even more happy when they are aware of the history of the house, which is the history of the Tuscan countryside. I am sorry about the hairdryer, in the future we will provide them to our guests, along with some names of coffee brands for the American style coffee pot so it will be easy to spot them at the supermarket.
You are always welcome at our villa, we hope to have you back here soon!
Une maison de rêve !
Superbe maison idéalement placée pour découvrir la Toscane.
La villa est en tous points conforme aux photos et même la piscine est effectivement immense ! L'ensemble est de grande qualité et décorée et meublée avec goût.
A recommander sans modération
Thank you very much for sharing your comments about the villa, we are very happy to read your words. We look forward to having you back here in Tuscany, you are always welcome!
Beautiful villa, great vacation
8 of us shared a week at Villa Carmignani and we all loved it. The villa is only 5 minutes drive from San Casciano with all kind of shops and 1 supermarket (also open on Sunday morning). The view over the Tuscan landscape is spectacular, grounds are well mainteined and the house was spotless. Very peaceful location and helpful owners, we will be back soon! Robert
We are always happy when our guests enjoy their holiday at our villa!
We hope to have you here again in the future.
