As a group of five women, we flew from different countries to meet in Rome. A teacher of Dolce Yoga and a teacher of Qoya led the retreat. We rented a car in Rome and drove to this magnificent villa. This isn't a castle - it is a retreat from the world. The only glitch in our stay was that... More

Our stay at Luca's place was a super experience. The restoration of the holiday house has been done with a lot of knowledge and makes the place very special. The garden and its pool is a very peaceful environment to feel at ease during our holidays. From the kitchen window we had a breath taking view over the Tuscan valley.... More

Stayed at Terzo di Danciano for a week. Lovely hilltop location overlooking the hills of Tuscany. They readily accommodated my no dairy and no pasta (in Italy!) diet and provided a perfect setting for rest and relaxation. There is a pool surrounded by gardens, with cherries just coming into season and figs not far behind. Luca, the owner, is a... More

I went the villa for the 10 days before my wedding, to relax with my fiance, my family and his and it was a fantastic family holiday. The villa is beautiful and very well renovated with an artsy touch. The views are stunning and Luca, the owner was a lovely, smiley and helpful host and gave us the privacy we... More

Luca's place is simply wonderful. This villa is pure, simple, real Italy. No frills, no extravagance. But more beautiful and peaceful than we ever could have expected. We stayed two weeks in Italy and our two nights at Luca's were, by far, the highlight. We arrived after dinnertime and were greeted by the housekeeper, who spoke little English but told... More

Yes this review is a little late, but better late than never. We stayed here in July 2010 for 3 nights and it was absolutely fabulous. We arrived late in the evening, after a lengthy drive from Pisa airport, hungry and tired. We were met by a very friendly host who recommended a place to eat and even called for... More

We stayed with 2 other couples for 3 nights, had a fantastic welcome and pure dinner the first evening at the open fire in the most beautifull hall you can imagine, enjoyed the best coffee in the mornings, and were charmed by the natural sympathie of Luca and Claudia. The last evening we had the great opportunity to join a... More

We spend our summer vacation on travelling through France and Italy. Terzo di Danciano was one of the first places we booked and we were not disappointed on arrival. The garden, house and views over the valley was so breathtaking that we found it hard to leave again. It will be difficult to find a more romantic and “classic Toscany”... More

We've had a fantastic holiday in this memorable B&B. We loved the house, the nature and the relaxed atmosfere. The place has been beautifully renovated (the internet site says it all) and the lady of the house works hard to give her guests a warm and welcome stay. I'm glad that we read the review of the Philadelphian couple as... More

Bottom line: do not fall for this place. They are good people, and they have restored a beautiful building in a beautiful manner. Our experience however would lead me to say that they are not cut out for running a B&B, it was simply one of his architecture projects. No signs no welcome no decent food for breakfast no hellos...
