This is a gem of an immaculately and tastefully restored farmhouse, set in spectacular olive trees and pine forest. Access is via a long driveway to a house that is about a kilometre from the village.
There is total peace at the head of the valley, sitting beside the excellent pool, looking down on the lovely village of Santa Maria dei Guidicci. Sofia and Pierre-Angelo were graceful and very attentive hosts and we highly recommend this unique holiday home.
I stayed 10 days in May with friends and then with family. Everyone was enchanted with villa Rook charms, garden and history. The kids loved running around from one room to the other. Despite a few rainy days, we were still able to enjoy the outdoor area and profited from the spacious saloons and kitchen. The villa is well equipped. It is also well located for day trips to Florence, Lucca, San Gimignano, the chianti area, Cinque Terre... We all had a great time! Thank you Eva.
