Amazing Place with Amazing Hosts...

  • 5 of 5

Le Ginepraie is a quiet place overlooking the Tuscany hills with wonderful, friendly hosts Val and Paola. We stayed a week with 5 couples and had Paola cook us some meals that were countyside Italian with homemade past and cherry tomato sauce and local raised rabbit.. We had a cooking class and enjoyed sharing the kitchen and talked about cooking and kids for and hour.. what a relaxing time we had.

The Villa itself was fantastic just as described with its sitting areas, pool and pizza oven. I found this place for our friends and they will be talking about this place for years to come and most are coming back to bring family.. Thank you Val and Paola for giving us the opportunity to share your place. I loved being so close to local towns but so far from it all..

Perfect Villa in Tuscan Countryside

  • 5 of 5

We just finished an amazing week at Le Ginepraie and can't wait to get back again. Valerio and Paola were gracious hosts and went far and beyond to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Valerio scrambled around constantly to deal with our various needs, from the trivial, like medical emergencies, to critical, like wine tasting.

Paola is an amazing cook who takes great pride in her creations. The house is beautiful, and the location facilitates day trips to a variety of cities. It was exactly what we were hoping for, and indeed much more.

Over seven days, we had lunches and dinners in Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, and other wonderful cities, but the two best meals we had during the week were the dinners Paola cooked at the villa. The patio overlooking the Tuscan sunsets is a beautiful setting and Paola's cooking is extraordinary. She went out of her way to accommodate a vegetarian and a gluten allergy -- not by taking key ingredients out of an already-planned dinners but instead by creating new dishes that were wonderful in their own right. She also moved her schedule around to teach us how to make fresh pasta, and shared her recipe for amazing nutmeg ice cream! Breakfasts were wonderful and it is difficult to imagine better ways to start the days than sitting on the terrace enjoying the great spread, which included a different cake each day. Really.

The house is beautiful and the three separate areas provide lots of privacy and comfort while the common areas are plentiful and diverse, with gathering spots both inside and outside. Each wing is unique and interesting, and even though we were there during an unusual heat wave, the rooms were airy, well ventilated, and very comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchens were all modern, and the house has a dishwasher and a laundry washing machine. The internet connection was fast enough to keep us with work, although in the Tuscan countryside it will never match a big city hotel. The pool is beautiful and meticulously maintained, and became an important part of each day. And the views...spectacular.

Can't wait to get back someday -- this was truly a special place.

La vita è bella

  • 5 of 5

Life is good at Le Ginepraie! It is an outstanding Tuscan villa - very beautiful and picturesque, and really spacious. It's quiet and private, and really well equipped and kept. The pool and pool area is great, with excellent wi-fi connection, and it is always kept very clean. But Le Ginepraie is more than all this: The owners of Le Ginepraie, Valerio and Paola, went to every length and beyond to ensure our 110 % satisfaction. We enjoyed fantastic yoga classes with Valerio, a brilliant yoga teacher, in the garden every morning for two weeks at 7:30. On two occasions, we took cooking classes for four-course-meals-to-die-for with Paola as well, learning how to prepare, and then to savour, the most delicious pies, pasta al ragu, risotto, saltimbocca, ossobucco, and an incredible cheese cake. Absolutely recommended!

Mille grazie - until next time!

(Both the appartments on the top floor are really spacious - like executive suites)

Outstanding Tuscan Villa and Restaurant

  • 5 of 5

What can I add to my previous review of Le Ginepraie? This was our third visit so that should be a clue to my thoughts. Another beautiful week, Paola and Valerio were as helpful as ever and this year we had the opportunity to try the restaurant on our final night. A light starter of courgette flowers and tendrils fried in a tempura batter. I'd seen Valerio collecting these from his vegetable patch earlier in the day so knew they couldn't be any fresher. This was followed by the best lasagna ever. I've no idea how Paola got the pasta sheets so thin! And then a bourguignon-style venison dish with polenta served to a perfect firmness. This was grand eating but the pièce de résistance was the most wonderful dessert. To call it a cheesecake would be to demean it, but ricotta is the main ingredient. Melt-in-the-mouth and pure ambrosia. All washed down with local wines and a rare home-made hazelnut spirit. Fa-bu-lous!

I've subsequently tried making the ricotta cake. The first was OK-ish and the second much better nut neither where anywhere near Paola's. Oh well – we'll just have to go back!

Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing break in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in June 2015, had a fantastic time. Accommodation is superb. The views over the Tuscan hills are spectacular, backdrop to the outdoor pool was amazing. Pool was cleaned everyday. Owners Paola & Valerio went out of their way to make the trip special. Organising horse riding, wine tours, mini-bus hire, booking restaurants, massage treatments, and authentic Italian home cooking for a large group of eleven - eating al fresco whilst watching sunset. We stayed in the Alabaster apartment which was huge, it had a dishwasher which made things a lot easier at the end of night. The owners are switched on to what guests expect from a luxury /relaxing holiday and deliver on this amazingly. Will certainly be back with the family.
