About Rita Kobrak

We both have worked in tourism for many years, taking tourists around Italy. My family is Italian and it was always my dream to own a place in Italy. We spend as much time in Italy as we can and hope to move there. We have started doing cooking and yoga breaks here too.

Rita Kobrak purchased this villa in 2005

Why Rita Kobrak chose Pergine Valdarno

We love the beautiful scenery and the fantastic people. There is such a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. We both fell in love with the house as soon as we saw it. There is something special about it and all our guests comment on how peaceful and relaxed they feel. It is great to drive down the lane and see boar, rabbits or deer.

What makes this villa unique

This is the real Tuscany. the people are fantastic and there are some great reasonably priced restaurants close to the villa. The scenery is stunning and Florence, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Cortona can easily be reached. Our villa is peaceful and relaxing , great for a family get together , child friendly and easily accessible for day trips to Florence, siena, Arezzo , Cortona , Assisi etc. It is a safe unspoilt part of Tuscany and you feel like you have gone back in time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Set at the end of a long gravel dirt track, we set eyes on the beautiful Villa Radicata. Peaceful and secluded, serene and atmospheric, we were mesmerised by the magnificent views and the homely feeling of the villa. It's a place you could quite happily spend all week without venturing out to the neighbouring towns and villages. At the end of your stay, you will definitely hate leaving its tranquil environment as much as we did. We will be back soon. Robbie and Stephanie - United Kingdom (received online Wed, April 25 2007)

What an unforgettable holiday at Villa Radicata! The villa is very comfortable and delightfully cosy, surrounded by stunning scenery and with a beautiful lake view. Especially enjoyed swimming in the large pool and dining out 'al fresco' under the pergola. Giovanna - United Kingdom (received online June 24 2007)

The villa was more beautiful than expected from the photos. We enjoyed our leisurely breakfasts outside with those incredible views.

Wonderful relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

I can highly recommend a stay at Villa Radicata. The location is ideal for a quiet relaxing stay with beautiful views or a short drive from the villa brings you to some beautiful towns with lovely markets and restaurants. The pool is great for some cooling off after a day sitting in the sun or walking in the towns. The house itself is beautifully presented with great facilities. Rooms are very comfortable. All in all, I was delighted with the holiday.

Fantastic rustic tranquil Tuscany with a pool

  • 5 of 5

We rented this out for all the family to meet and holiday together. What a fantastic find. This house is very authentic with marvelous views across at the mountains and a lake. This pool is a fabulous size , much bigger than ones we have had before. There is a lot of space here, both inside the house and outside in the garden. The nearby towns are beautiful and more real than a lot in Tuscany, a truly wonderful holiday. We had a cookery lesson and a yoga session , both of which were a marvelous addition to our holiday. A wonderful retreat for a family all together.

100% Authentic Tuscan Villa Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here Summer 2016. The house was a beautiful, rustic home full of all the mod cons we should require and loads of extras for the children. The pool was gorgeous and we truly felt we experienced the Tuscan lifestyle with our outdoor dining, visits to the local market in Arezzo and quaint festivals in Anghiari. Our hosts, Rita and Mike couldn't do enough for us - yet respected our privacy as and when required. Great to have onsite guides to advise, recommend and share local secrets with us. We've booked to return with our extended family for August 2018; can't wait!

So so relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful spot! I just loved being on the side of the hill with amazing views over the lake in the distance. A holiday with my young son is normally tiring but here I got the peace and quiet occasionally that I so needed with Rita and Fernanda babysitting and cooking and I even lost some weight into the bargain. Just delightful!

Stayed at Villa Radicata last year and enjoyed it immensely. The villa itself has lots of character, it is quaint but also had all the facilities we needed. There are lots of great restaurants in the local area and we also visited Assisi, Florence and Arezzo. What we enjoyed most were the amazing views from the villa gardens over the Tuscan hills and Lake Montedoglio, swimming in the private pool with a view and dining al fresco at the villa. Owners were very helpful and accommodating.
