The trip of a lifetime!!!!
The villa was beautiful and well appointed. We loved our experience! We had a problem with the gas stove not being turned on, but were able to get it taken care of right away. The area is beautiful and the pool was gorgeous. It was the perfect place for us to be to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries and taste a lot of wonderful Brunello wines!!
Great house, great environment - would defintely book it again
We stayed for one week in this beautiful and recently renovated house with two families, 4 adults, 4 kids (15, 15, 13 & 11 years old). What can I say other then it fully matched our expectations.
The house was even bigger, better facilitated and located then expected. The private pool is nice and clean and well maintained by the gardener every morning. It gives a perfect view at the picturesque Tuscany hills, vineyards and olive trees. Due to lights it can be used at night as well.
The huge game room with table tennis, table football and archery was a big favourite with the kids and we played many competitions.
The kitchen is big and well equipped with a large fridge and excellent coffee machine. A large and comfortable table to enjoy nice meals with great company.
The bedrooms are spacious, beds and matrasses are of good quality. During our stay, mid August, it was extremely hot (35 to 40 degrees). Having no airco in the bedroom made the nights a bit short. Additional fans were promptly provided by the owner at our request.
For bakery and supermarket you need to drive to Montalcino (10km, 10 minutes drive). In Montalcino there are a large variety (in price, quality and service) of restaurants. The best diner experience we had in Camigliano. Only 500 meters from the residence in Osteria del Galletto. Great food, for a good price and unprecedented hospitality. I would advise to go there at the beginning of your stay, so you have the chance to go there again.
We visited a number of small authentic Tuscany villages (30 to 40 minutes drive) and Siena (ca 1 hr).
Tuscany is a great and large area. The house is a bit remote but a perfect place to relax and fully enjoy all the beautiful things that Italy and Tuscany has to offer.
Silvia Ghezzi and family, thanks for allowing us to stay in your house!
A fabulous property in a stunning location.
We spent two fabulous weeks in the VIlla and thoroughly enjoyed the stunning location, the impressive views and the fantastic pool. The pool was a perfect size for my 17, 12 & 10 year olds, myself and my wife to play "catch", to swim and to dive into and the depth was great (my 12 yr old was able to walk the full length). The sun loungers were comfy but the location, based on top of a hill within the Tuscan HIlls was so picture perfect, we must have taken one hundred pictures. The pool was also lit, so night time games were also enjoyed.
Even tho the pool is right next to the house, the house also has a fantastic courtyard, which allowed us to also opt to sunbathe right next to the kitchen (cool drinks, ice cream and the odd beer),,!
Wifi in the house was good (we are a mobile /social media hungry family), TV had a number of sports channels and the Playstation came in handy (especially to play DVD movies). The kitchen was very well equiped, the bedrooms were huge but for us, the table tennis table, the football table, swing ball, boxing bag and...the indoor Archery in the massive games room were brilliant...!
We loved the peace, we loved the serenity and we found lots of countryside walks and nature around.
The villa was perfect to visit Montalicino (15mins in the car) a beautiful town (with a great supermarket), but we also went to Siena (an hour) and indeed Florence (2hrs),a great base in Tuscany.
Would I recommend renting this villa,,,only one answer,,,,,Yes..,!
Prepared to be wowed by this amazing house in a stunning location.
We enjoyed a fantastic week in Montalcino from 28th July until 4th August 2018. as a big family of 6, with 3 children aged 10 months, 8 and 15 years we enjoyed plenty of space in this magnificent house.
Silvia left us a welcoming basket of her own fruit and vegetables and a lovely bottle of Montalcino wine.
It was extremely hot but with fans and mosquito nets on the window, sleeping was not an issue. If sitting outside in the evening don't forget to have some mosquito repellent.
The house is spread out and enormous. The pictures do not convey the space that can be enjoyed and used. The games room is huge with table tennis, a table football machine and a boxing area. We had lots of fun times. In addition on the 1st floor balcony is a TV area with comfy sofas where you can play playstation or watch DVDs. Also there is a large selection of board games and puzzles. Wifi is available could be stronger with so many of us using it!
The kitchen can seat 12 people and is extremely well stocked for home cooking. More plastic glasses for the pool area would be useful. The views from this house are wonderful and sitting at the pool absorbing the Tuscany scenery is pure heaven. You do feel that you are completely alone except within a 10 minute walk is the sleepy village of Camiigliano and for more excitement a 15 minutes drive away is the beautiful town of Montalcino. There is a great COOP/Supermarket catering for all your needs located there. There are many little shops and restaurants to visit. The pool is just the best and the pool man comes every morning to make sure all is well. The property is located on a vineyard and we did the highly recommendable brunch wine tour. Not to be missed!!!
Also in the village is an Osteria. We went one evening. The views were spectacular and the food amazing. We did a lot of sight seeing. Most places were about one hour away and Rome is 2.5 hours away. Would recommend an over night stay.
Silvia was a great hostess and was very helpful via WhatsApp. I would strongly recommend this beautiful house.
