About Massimo or Loredana Minesi

Hello, we are the Minesi family: Loredana, Massimo and our daughter Marta.Originally we came from Milano in Nothern Italy. We bought Vallacchi in 1989 to make our dream reality to have a place for living outside the big city. At that time Marta was one and a half years old and we wanted to give her a place where she could grow up in harmony.In the year 1993 we decided to settle in Vallacchi, but unfortunately the work was not finished, so we had to live for eight months in a caravan until the first apartment was ready to move into.

Massimo or Loredana Minesi purchased this farmhouse in 1989

Perfect getaway in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quite, nice, welcoming house in a friendly, beautiful environment, and if you would like to depart from it with the feeling that you have not been on holidays but rather visiting some old friends, this house is the right choice. We have to thank Massimo and Loredana for the lovely time we spent there at the beginning of July. Their friendliness and all the attentions they had for me and my family (four children) contributed to make of these holidays in Tuscany a really nice experience.

Do not look for luxuries in Villa Vallacchi, the house is simple as it should be, respecting perfectly the atmosphere of an old modest farmhouse. Havind said this, the house has all you need, starting with the thick walls that keep the summer heat away and ending up with the nice swimming pool built in the garden. Green surroundings make the building fit perfectly in this beautiful countryside.

A number of interesting visiting places are to be found at not more than one hour ride: Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa, San Miniato, Vinci and so on, so the location is almost ideal if Tuscany is your target.

Another tip, ask Loredana at least once to cook for you.

Tuscan Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place to experience the real Tuscany. Loredana and Massimo were wonderful hosts and were very welcoming. It was very hot during our 2 weeks so the large pool was a godsend.The typical Tuscan house was large and cool. The village was a short walk across the fields with a nice little bar and pizzeria. A 10 to 15min drive to the nearest supermarket at Montaione was convenient.

We had excursions to Florence, San Gimignano, Certaldo and Castelfiorentino (great market) all with their differing attractions. Many days were spent either at the villa or close to it, exploring the local area. The wildlife was very interesting, especially when coming back at night! If you've never come accross glow worms, wild boar, little owls, deer and porcupines in your back garden, this is the place for you. This was our third visit to Tuscany - this villa was the best of them, and was very reasonably priced compared to many others.

Highly recommended!

Gorgeous. Quiet. Lovely. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We went for our honeymoon and our biggest disappointment was we only planned ONE NIGHT instead of our entire week there! The home is absolutely beautiful, classic tuscan home remodeled for comfort. Completely beautiful out every window. Lovely clear blue swimming pool, sweet smelling roses, blooms and fruit trees - hammocks, lawn chairs, picnic gazebo ... We will LOVE to take our kids (6) there - and we will DEFINITELY go back together for a quiet getaway! Food is wonderful, Hosts are genuine and so kind, it was our favorite place on our 12 day trip! It's a MUST STAY in our book for sure!!

Great vacation in beautiful Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Last July, we went to beautiful Villa Vallacchi in Tuscany for a week. We rented the comfortable 3 bedroom appartment for the five of us. The appartment was spacious and had everything we needed. It was the perfect spot to relax after a day in Florence, Pisa or Sienna. We would jump in the refreshing pool, play a game of ping pong or just enjoy a glass of wine on the patio. Massimo and Loredana were very welcoming, helpful and nice. We really enjoyed our conversations with them. We had the pleasure of having dinner with them and both the company and the food were very enjoyable. The kids had fun playing cards by the pool and petting the animals, especially the friendly dog Nina and Pedro and Mimi the donkeys. Many little things and details contribute to making this place peaceful to the eye, the body and the soul. We recommend it very warmly and will go back! Mille Grazie Loredana and Massimo!

"Podere Vallacchi" is real Tuscany!

  • 4 of 5

We where now the fifth time here at Vallacchi and we like the central position, to visit the famous cities in near 60 to 70 km (Firence, Pisa, Siena, etc.). We lived in all the rooms, except the big apartment for 6 persons and we love the details, in the art which Massimo rebuild the building with fine feeling for the architecture and the culture. The building is located in about 10.000 m2 ground with plants and the very nice, clean and big swimmingpool. It is about one km far from the street to Montaione and therefor at night it's very silent. The price for the rooms and the apartements are very inexpensive. Massimo and Loredana are a very nice and helpful couple. We are looking forward for our next trip to "Podere Vallacchi"! Ciao

Forget the time and relax

  • 5 of 5

We've been in Vallacchi in the year 2000 for the first time with our dog. Now we stayed here for the fifth time meanwhile without our dog gut with our 13 year old son and our six year old daughter. It's still the Same place.

There are no technological Substitutes like videogames, TV, ... just a whole lotta nature, animals and of course a perfect swimmingpool.

For myself I work in the IT Branche and it's absolutly recreative to let the electronical and Information Society for two weeks "in the bag". It's amazing that our kids had very much fun without their Electronic Equipment. And I can tell you: they loved it. The first question after our holidays was: "When we will come back to Vallacchi?"

Loredana and Massimo made us feel as we were Family Members. We chated very often on the beautiful balcony.

The location is perfect for trips to all you warnt to see there - it's simply just in the middle of everything - Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo....

The house itself has everything you need (except the mentioned TV, Video Games, ... but there is a perfect working WIFI without repeating Login Screens).

And of course: I've answered our children's question: "We will come back, I promise...."
