A group of us spent a week in two of the villas that Ugo has and we could not have asked for more. Beautifully appointed villas with spectacular views across the plains. All the essentials for groups or families - great pools with loungers and day beds, lovely terraces for evening drinks and barbecues and only a short journey from... More

Our first time in Villa Ugo and we hope to return many times over. It has magnificent views, beautiful gardens, swimming pool, a trail and the villa's accommodations are very comfortable. It has all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the hospitality provided by Ugo. Also, we had a great Tuscan meal cooked by the villa's chef. The location is... More

from the moment we arrived, we felt as we were in paradise! Ugo made us feel like we were his family. The house (Villa Orlando) was exqusite and the tranqulity was just what we were needed. His private chefs Ada & Enzo were the icing on the cake... we cancelled reservations at local restaurants once we tasted the delicacies in... More

The near unanimity of positive ratings perplexes me. Granted, my family's experience was limited to Liliana and Nello, and thus I have no opinions on any of the other properties on offer. Based on my other experiences within Tuscany, I would rate the Liliana's accommodations as okay, no better than adequate.The Nello facility is, on other hand distinctly substandard by... More

Thanks for your review. As you also underlined Villa Ugo usually receives very good reviews, all of which are made spontaneously by our guests. I am not sure which other experiences you have had in Tuscany, but, unless you stay in a 5 star hotel, which of course differs a lot in price and service, our villas absolutely reach the... More

Our first time to Italy; 2 days in Rome then a fun drive to Cortona for a week at Villa Ugo-Orlando. The villa was an excellent blend of old world charm and modern conveniences. The Villa has four bedrooms with four full bathrooms which allows a lot of flexibility. All amenities are provided. Local grocery store jaunts were a fun... More

We spent a week in Vila Ugo on a yoga retreat last September. It was just the perfect place for relaxing and enjoy a peaceful holiday. The surrounds and view from the house are absolutely stunning. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Ugo and his wife are incredible hosts and we were very luck to have Ada cooking... More

We recently returned home after 3 weeks in Villa Ugo - Villa Orlando, and it was very hard to leave! Villa Orlando's large 4 bedroom/4 bath arrangement was perfect for family and friends. The house itself is beautifully restored, furnished and cared for with all the amenities provided. Separate living rooms on both the ground floor and upper level offered... More

There are simply not enough adjectives to describe Villa Ugo- Villa Nello. The setting is amazing, quiet, beautiful views and a superb villa with pool to boot! I had visited Villa Ugo with my late husband and friends some years ago and we stayed at Villa Liliana prior to the renovations. So when we started to plan a family reunion... More
