Very lovely place to relax and enjoy Tuscan history

  • 5 of 5

Via di villa Barberino is a very lovely Tuscan vineyard/villa. We enjoyed our stay very much.

It is a very old villa, but the flat is well appointed with 2 bedrooms. 2 bedrooms - perfect for our family of 4 (ages 12 & 18 year old girls). There is air conditioning in both bedrooms (master - queen, bdrm 2 - two twins) There are also fan(s) provided. The sheets and towels are CLEAN and CRISP. The bathroom/shower is clean and neat. There are towels provided for the the family for the lovely pool area that overlooks the vineyard scenery. The pool is well kept and clean. There are designated areas for chairs, etc based on which casita you are staying, but we were alone for most of our stay (nice) and when more guests arrived, no one seemed to care.... there were plenty of loungers, etc. for everyone. (not crowded at all). The caretaker (owner?) was very nice and provided us with a bottle of wine on check in (p.s. tried a LOT of Chianti Classico and this was truly my favorite - so bold and flavorful). I also bought a couple bottle of the Nunzi Conti EVOO - Yummmmmm & 8 Euros ea).

A couple things: there is not a LOT of correspondence for booking, etc., which made me quite nervous ( I didn't get the address until very soon before our trip, which I did not care for (I am a PLANNER)....However, there was no need to fret, as all is exactly as represented. Smooth transaction, lovely caretaker, well kept grounds/flats, and an overall positive experience. We have travelled extensively and used VRBO with mostly positive experiences - this was one of them This was our first European trip and this place was a 4.75/5. My only small suggestion is that. although there are cooking/eating utensils, etc there are no provisions such as the basic salt/pepper/cooking oil, etc. Many people may not cook at all on vacation, but in Tuscany, there isn't the opportunity to just pop downstairs for a quick ANYTHING..... so being able to have breakfast - or whatever - in your flat is welcome. Maurizio did point us to the COOP Fi for supplies - (8km away - quick trip), so we were all good - but buying salt, sugar, pepper, basil, etc.... well, we dealt with it and were just fine. It is no reason not to stay in this absolutely lovely villa. We would 100% recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Tuscany. Go to Florence, Siena (Duomo), and San Galano - must see....

Good location & views, shame about the noise

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was clean and offered stunning views. Unfortunately the lounge window overlooked the court yard which was used by the villa which was occupied for the duration of our stay by 3 families who drank & talked & sang into the early hours every evening which made it difficult to sleep. When we did manage to get to sleep, we were woken early to the sound of cockerels and hens and the occasional sound of a buzzing mosquito.

The photos on the website are of the 3 properties but it doesn’t show you which photos relate to each property. Was a little disappointed at the lack of basic provisions considering there are no local shops, you have to drive to Mercatale - 4 km away or San Casciano,8 km away. One toilet roll for 4 people, no basic ingredients eg salt, pepper & oil. Also mosquito nets over the beds would have been a great help

Nevertheless the location was great for exploring the surrounding area with little gems like Siena, Greve and San Gimignano. Florence was only a 35min drive away and is well worth the visit.

Antonio provided a list of restaurants and we visited two of them. Cinque Di Vino served fantastic Florentine steak and Il Gallo Giallo was simply stunning, small menu but great quality food.

Little disappointed that we didn’t get a tour of the vineyard (I did ask) nor did we get treated to a bottle of their wine as in the previous review.

Positives: Good location for exploring, stunning views, spacious and clean accommodation, great pool and outdoor dining area

Negatives: Too noisy (but I guess we were unlucky that week), no mosquito nets and no basic provisions

Idyllic Italian haven!

  • 5 of 5

San Casciano Val Di Pesa epitomizes all that there is to love and savor about Italian life. Each morning my four year old would dramatically throw open our wooden shutters, shouting out Bon Journo to the cockerel, hens and cuckoo birds that inhabited our stunning gardens. Our 280 degree view was framed by the Florentine mountains in the back ground to the rolling valley of vineyards and olive groves in the foreground. As we cooked, chatted and played with our children in the kitchen, this view peered in at us, catching our breath each time.

The villa is sensitively and immaculately preserved, the pictures show the interior as it is. The photos of the gardens however do not indicate how vast that space is. It is beautifully planted, with real privacy offered from each veranda. You also are free to wander throughout the proprietor's estate. Walks through the vineyards and forests provided my four year old with a great adventures. I also went for my morning run around the estate - a 4 km circuit, providing stunning views of the area and much safer than running on the local, narrow roads.

Maurizio and Antonio, were very gracious hosts. Always courteous and readily available to resolve any queries we had. We were also treated to a tour of their cellar and a bottle of their exquisite Chianti wine.

San Casciano, only 8 km away, (Mercatale - 4 km away, fine for grocery shopping and had a charming playground) was a real find. We went there nearly every evening, and we felt like we were the only tourists there. It's an affluent, effortlessly elegant town, with a sufficient array of restaurants, cafes and shops to create an ambient atmosphere. They playground had the most incredible view of a river valley, in the cool of the evening all the locals loved to amble along its edge; a perfect spot for people watching.

My only reservation was the road leading up to the villa, it was eroded quite severely in parts, making driving a hired car quite a precarious experience.

Lastly San Casciano, is the perfect spot for exploring Chianti. We were 30 mins from Florence, 40 from Sienna. Two other towns I must recommend are San Gimignano, home to the worlds first skyscraper and apparently the best icecream too. I loved it for its piazza that contained the best set of steps, far superior to the Steps of Rome, much more atmospheric. The other town is Panzano, a hill top town with a famously cultured butcher. Incredible views while there and enroute.

Geweldig huis en perfect om toscane te beleven

  • 5 of 5

Het huis is op de eerste verdieping en met grote kamers. Slaapkamers met airco (heerlijk). Zeer vriendelijke verhuurder en alles goed geregeld. Zwembad is goed met mooi uitzicht over de velden. We komen zeker nog een keer terug.

Idyllische Lage - perfekt für Ausflüge

  • 4 of 5

Um die Region zwischen Florenz und Siena zu erkunden ist die Lage des Objekts nahezu perfekt. Nach kurzer Fahrt ist man auf der Schnellstraßen, aber auch die übrigen Landstraßen sind sehr gut erreichbar. Die Ferienwohnung hat alles was man braucht, jedoch könnte sie etwas liebevoller eingerichtet, so würde man sich noch wohler fühlen. Da in der Wohnung diverse Treppen sind, ist insbesondere bei Kleinkindern besondere Aufmerksamkeit notwendig. Die Außenanlagen laden zum verweilen ein, jedoch muss man bedenken, dass die Wohnung im 1. OG des Gebäudes liegt und somit immer eine Treppe genutzt werden muss. Die Vermieter waren jederzeit erreichbar und die Kommunikation war reibungslos.

Un site exceptionnel, une vue superbe

  • 4 of 5

Cette magnifique propriété est idéalement placée et bénéficie d'une vue magnifique sur les collines tout en étant proche des principaux sites touristiques de Toscane. L'appartement est spacieux, bien équipé et très propre. Il y fait un peu trop chaud l'après-midi et la nuit . C'est dommage.Le jardin et la piscine sont très agréables et très bien entretenus. Le propriétaire est agréable et accueillant tout en restant discret. Le chemin d'accès est un peu "cahotique" mais le site est superbe. De bonnes vacances !!!
