About Antonietta Russo

Buonasera from Antonietta Russo. I'm native of Genoa where I live but Tuscany is my second home and where my heart is! I purchased and fully restored the villa at the beginning of year 2000 since when I've the pleasure of meeting guests from all over the world! From my little paradise on hearth you can reach numerous sites in Tuscany within easy drive but I hope you're also planning to relax by the pool with a good local Chianti wine enjoying the extensive views of the countryside! My personal assistant, Serena will be taking care of your requests of information in English before and during your stay.

Antonietta Russo purchased this villa in 2000

First class property with excellent facilities and very friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Good location for travelling around area. Four double bedrooms - all well appointed. Large kitchen and living area with a covered patio for eating outside. Pool was a real attraction and was well maintained as was rubbish removal and generally keeping the area clean and tidy. A great place for a family to enjoy Tuscany.

The best place to rent in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The owner Antonietta and her assistant Serena were very quick to reply to our emails during the booking process. They even emailed a Villa Book which was a tremendous help in planning our vacation, we referred to it during our stay, too. The villa is very spacious and comfortable. It was very clean when we arrived and the mid stay cleaning during our 10 day stay also made it easier to keep up. The view is one of the best we saw, it is much better than the picture on the website. We had a wonderful stay and I recommend this beautiful villa. Thank you. Grazie mille!

Beautiful Spot

  • 4 of 5

The villa was more impressive in person than the pics on line. Beautifuly located on a hillside overlooking the Tuscan region with mountain range in the background. The grounds were impeccably kept with flower beds and plants. We enjoyed the private pool and the various outside eating spots. Close to Sienna, Florence and San Gimignano.

Antonietta was a wonderful host and took care of all our needs. We hope to return one day.

Excellent stay in the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week's stay at the villa with our grown up children and can recommend the accommodation and location very highly. A relatively short drive from Pisa airport and in easy reach of many places of interest, there was just too much to do in a week.

The pool was wonderful and we made full use of it when we we not visiting other places. Even a couple of days of thunderstorms did not spoil our holiday. Thanks to Antonietta for her welcome and kindness.

Lovely house in beautiful Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the villa San Pietro. Antonietta was a charming host and very helpful. The house was spotless and the pool a welcome feature in the heat . It was wonderful to have the place to ourselves. However the house is VERY close to the road with cars,trucks and motorbikes flying past at all hours. If you are a light sleeper beware. The proximity ot the road probably 2 -4 metres not apparent on the website. Beds in 2 of the rooms also Very poor with very hard sagging mattresses. Not good enough for the price paid. Otherwise the house was very lovely and we enjoyed our stay

Wonderful stay at Villa San Pietro

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the villa! Antonietta and Serena were very helpful both before and during our stay. The villa and the garden is so nice, and our kids loved the swimmingpool. Everything was as described, and on arrival the villa was superclean. We loved every minute of it, and hope to come again.

The villa is only 5 min drive to the centre of a town with shops and restaurants. There is no public transports from the villa so a car is essential. The road to the villa is fully paved and lit up. It's a secondary road and although some cars would be passing by, these can only be heard, not seen from the outdoor dining area or pool from where you will have open views of the countryside.
