On our arrival, Vittorio and Marina were there to welcome us - they were very helpful during our stay and recommended several great resturants. We stayed for a week in the downstairs villa which is fantastic and well maintained - the pictures of it do not do it justice. The grounds are surrounded by an olive grove, is well maintained...

Det var så 2. gang vi holdte ferie i dette fantastiske hus, med en fabelagtig beliggenhed og udsigt. Huset er utroligt velholdt, rent og meget italiensk indrettet, hvilket giver en meget hyggelig stemning. Udenoms arealet og pool er velholdt og bliver dagligt tilset af ejeren. Huset ligger ca. 10. min gang fra byen San Gimignano som er en by der... More

We spent a wonderful month here in October 2012 using the villa as a base for exploring Tuscany, some magnificent bike rides, and a wonderful place to relax and soak up the atmosphere. It is a stunning location and the hosts are so warm and friendly, and made our stay even more memorable. Thank you Marina and Vittorio, we will... More

It's our last night in Tuscany and our whole family is so sad to be leaving this Tuscan paradise. Not only is the location the best for traveling throughout Toscana and Umbria, but also it's an amazing house that makes you want to stay and just enjoy the world around it! Seriously, we have taken pics of the house to... More

Lovely house, perfect location, fantastic views, nice pool, very warm and friendly owners. San Gimignano is a 10 minutes walk: very pittoresque, many shops and restaurants - don't miss Le Vecchie Mura for a perfect italian dinner on a panaromic terrace! Many other very interesting places like Siena, Florence and Volterra within 45 minutes by car (you need one!). Tuscany... More

There is a pool with lovely views over the Tuscan countryside. The villa is set in 10 acres of land some planted with olive grove which guests are... More
