WOW! Amazing Holiday!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 fantastic weeks here with our large family, and would have happily stayed longer! The views from the Villa were breathtakingly beautiful - to wake up and see that every morning was a blessing. Olive groves, countryside and sky - so much sky!! The Villa was very comfortable, well equipped and full of Rustic Charm, and came with Wi-Fi and Netflix.

Vincenzo was a very attentive and helpful owner, who was available at any time and responded immediately to any enquiries. His mother met us at the Villa and was lovely, we were provided with a sample of their beautiful Extra Extra virgin Olive oil, which was INCREDIBLE and some local wine which was also delicious. The Pool is as amazing as the photos suggest - we spent every day diving and cooling off in there - very well maintained. Amenities, local supermarkets and restaurants are just a short drive away - we had some lovely meals in Castiglion Fiorentino with amazing views over looking the hills and town below - oh and the Gelato is simply SCRUMMY!!!!

Would certainly recommend and would love to return for another amazing adventure - thank you Vincenzo!

Fantastic !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely large rustic farmhouse which is well equipped and furnished even with wifi and smart TV if needed but this is not why you would come here. The views from the house are astounding and uninterrupted .The terrace and outdoor veranda are wonderful places to enjoy eating or playing games day or night. The pool is excellent ,clean and well maintained with a splendid diving board to add to the fun. We managed to find hillside tracks for walking and also off road cycling close to the house and local towns like Cortona are only 20mins drive away . Vincenzo is a friendly and helpful owner and his mother who greeted us is a lovely and informative lady ,she even took us to a local wine producer down the road where we purchased excellently priced and tasting white and red wine. We are large family of 7 with a dog and this house accommodated us well , I cannot fault this lovely property ,location or stay in any way , and would highly recommend.

Super schönes haus im olivenhain

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten 3 Wochen Aufenthalt in einem sehr schönen Haus in der Toskana mit traumhaftem ausblick. Was ein klein bisschen gestört hat, war, dass das Bad oben nur durch eins der zimmer zu erreichen war, wenn auch eine Trennwand durch schränke gestellt wurde. Das bad unten hat in der dusche ein paar lose fliesen, hinter die natürlich wasser kam, was nicht richtig trocknen konnte. Es roch dadurch etwas muffig. Trotzdem: das haus hat sehr viel italienischen charme. Eine wunderschön, grosse, gemütliche essecke. Auch dei schlafzimmer sind sehr schön. Und natürlich der tolle pool! Der vermieter war sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Sehr schönes Haus mit großem Pool in ruhiger und schöner Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt wirklich sehr genossen. Das Haus ist wirklich sehr geräumig und sehr schön. Die Ausstattung ist nicht mehr die Neueste aber das stört den sehr guten Gesamteindruck nicht. Der Pool ist wirklich sehr groß was insbesondere unseren Kindern gut gefallen hat. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig mit einem wunderschönen Ausblick. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nähe sind ausreichend vorhanden.

Fantastic place - will certainly recommend it

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house and spend a fantastic week there with my family. The house, the pool, the surroundings totally lived up to my expectations and actually exceeded. The pool was big and clean, the house was nice and provided some coolness when it was 40+ degrees outside! The flowers were blooming event though it was very dry period which also showed us that the place was taken care of. Fantastic service from Vincenzo Califanos whenever we had a question or needed guidance. The house is beautifully situated in the olive fields and the hills and I simply cannot describe the view! We will certainly return to this place in future.

Altes Bauernhaus mit Charme und großem Pool

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten einen sehr schönen Urlaub in dem alten Bauernhaus. Es steht inmitten eines weitläufigen Olivenhains am Hügel und hat einen großen Pool. Der Blick von der großen Terrasse vorm Haus bietet beinahe Rundum-Panorama auf die toskanischen Hügel. Nachbarn gibt es, aber sie sind weit entfernt und weder zu sehen noch zu hören. Man ist völlig ungestört.

Die Ausstattung ist vollständig und funktionell, modernen Luxus braucht man nicht zu erwarten. Luxus sind die Lage und der Charme des Hauses. Es ist schon etwas besonderes, dreihundert Jahre alte Deckenbalken und die gut ins Wohnzimmer integrierten ehemaligen Futterkrippen zu betrachten.

Der Eigentümer Vincenzo ist sehr bemüht den Aufenthalt so schön wie möglich zu gestalten und per WhatsApp immer erreichbar. Als die obere Schublade des Geschirrspülautomaten kaputt ging, sorgte Vincenzo innerhalb kürzester Zeit für die Reparatur. Eine Stunde nach meiner Nachricht standen zwei Italiener vor der Tür, die das Teil gleich reparierten.

Der Pool ist ein Traum und hat sogar eine Sprunggrube. Man kann vom Sprungbrett springen und richtig tauchen - und nicht nicht nur an der Oberfläche rumplantschen. Besonders für die Kinder war das toll. Vorne befindet sich ein flacher Bereich, in dem auch kleinere Kinder gut stehen können. Im heißen toskanischen Sommer ist es eine besondere Erfrischung, nach anstrengenden Städte-Ausflügen schnell unter die einfache Außendusche und dann in den Pool zu spingen. Die Zikaden zirpen und man kann aus dem Wasser den Blick auf die umliegenden Hügel, das Haus und die Zypressen genießen.

Siena ist eine Autostunde entfernt, Florenz anderthalb bis zwei. Gut zu erreichen und lohnenswert sind auch die kleineren toskanischen und nordumbrischen Städte wie San Gimignano und Assisi. Pisa ist mit zweieinhalb Stunden ziemlich weit weg.

Alles in allem sehr empfehlenswert.
