We just returned from our stay in "Il Nido" and the house lived up to all of our expectations and more! The house and surroundings are beautiful and 100% clean. The very friendly owners cleaned the surroundings and pool almost every day. Decoration and interior shows very good taste and very well thought through. It is visible to see everything... More

This stunning villa surpassed all expectations. Not only is it even more beautiful in real life than the photos, we were made to feel incredibly welcome and were well looked after by the lovely owners. This place is obviously their pride and joy and the care they put into it really shows. Stunning views (gave us the perfect setting to... More

Our recent stay at "The Nest" (Il Nido) was more than we expected in every way. Location was perfect, quality of the house/grounds was perfect, friendliness of the owners was perfect. The owners' attention to detail was evident from the moment we met them. Tucked on a hillside overlooking a Tuscan valley, we felt that our privacy was honored in... More

We spent one gorgeous week at Il Nido in early September with our six-year old son. The house is immaculately clean and uncluttered, and furnished with some beautiful Tuscan antiques. The house is just the right size for a family of three or four. It was very nice having two full bathrooms. The view is unbelievable - it was blissful... More

We stayed in this picture perfect villa atop a hill side with spectacular views. The owners welcome and embrace you like family. Eating home made pasta ( made the wonderful owner) under the clear blue skies with the backdrop of the rolling hills. It was a dream. I can not wait to return

We just returned from our 2 weeks vacation at Il Nido. The house is beautiful located, full of flowers, very well maintained and provides impeccable views to the breathtaking valley. We had an adorable, relaxing time in and around the house and the wonderful pool. All is very well maintained until the smallest detail. The owners are extremely warm, friendly,... More

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Tuscany with our teenage daughters. The villa is the most charming villa we have ever stayed in. The interior was beautifully decorated and furnished with a phenomenal attention to detail. The owners have put their heart and soul into the making of this property. Very clean and beautifully maintained. Perched high... More

We where recommended this villa from a couple that have a cooking business in Cortona and Australia. Absolutely fabulous. We were held up in a traffic accident and where late on arrival, but we were welcomed with open arms and a basket of goodies. The villa was all that you could ask for and more. The only down was the... More

Il Nido is a wonderful place to escape from busy lives to get away from it all. With seclusion and privacy the house and pool surround by olive groves is perfect. Breath-taking views across the valley toward Montepulciano and beyond make eating out on either of the terraces a joy. The house is located within easy distance of many of... More
