What can I add to my previous review of Le Ginepraie? This was our third visit so that should be a clue to my thoughts. Another beautiful week, where even the clouds and rain could not dampen our spirits. Paola and Valerio were as helpful as ever and this year we had the opportunity to try the restaurant on our...

Le Ginepraie was the perfect location for our recent yoga trip. It offered both inside rooms for cooler morning classes and the great outdoors to take advantage of the stunning views of the Tuscan hills in the later afternoon. The property consists of a main building where the rooms are, and a separate dining building for meals. The pool is... More

This was our first time visiting Tuscany with a group of guests joining a "Yoga Retreat / Exploring Tuscany" Trip organized by RoxAnn Madera (yoga therapist) and myself. We had picked "Villa Le Ginepraie " after a thorough research and we were proven right in any aspect. The villa is nestled ideally in the beautiful and quiet landscape between the... More

From the 1-year old taking his mid day naps to the 74 year old (taking his mid day naps as well) - 3 generations, 11 people all in all, had a wonderful time at Le Ginepraie. We had the luxury of having the villa for ourselves and took advantage of the pizza making, the splendid daily breakfast + 2 delicious... More

This was our second time visiting with Paola and Valerio. Since our last visit, they have welcomed a darling little girl named Viola. Both visits have been outstanding. The location is a perfect base for sightseeing if you have a car. There is plenty of room for parking the car at the Villa and it is a flat parking area... More

There's a very good reason that there are no reviews of this place less than "Very Good" - everything about it is perfect. I'm not sure i can say anything that hasn't already been said, but i would echo all of the comments about the natural beauty, the impeccable hospitality of Valerio and Paola, the amenities of the villa, etc....

We've just come back from a glorious week spent with friends at Villa Le Ginepraie. The hospitality shown by Paola and Valerio prior to our departure and whilst we were there was second to none (be it a fantastic 5 course Tuscan dinner cooked by Paola to helping with taxis to and from wedding venues). Villa Le Ginepraie is set... More

3 families, each with a baby under one, spent a week at Villa Le Ginepraie and it was utterly incredible. Paola and Valerio are the fantastic hosts, in the run up to the trip they were super helpful and then once we arrived, although they live on the property, a short walk from the Villa, they have mastered the art...

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children rented the farmhouse in mid-April for 10 days. In the lead up to our holiday, our hosts were endlessly helpful and upon arrival Paola and Valerio continued to make our Tuscan adventure a seamless one. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable, the kitchen well stocked with a surplus of crockery, cutlery and... More

It’s our first time to stay in a farmhouse and we found that experience so special. You feel you have a small slope on your own & enjoy the space and open view of the farms & cypress. The host is very friendly & helpful, the breakfast is exceptionally good & prepared with heart. We enjoyed our stay very much... More
