A beautiful place to rest and relax - but still only 30 minutes from Florence and not much further to Siena, San Gimignano etc Room was large and... More

Our stay in this villa was great. When you walk around in the villa you can really see and feel the history. There are some fresco's left from a couple of hundred years ago and they still have the old machines that used to make wine. It's really cool to see. The view is amazing, specially on the panoramic terrace... More

Talente has a great atmosphere and Andre and his family were lovely. My 12 year old son loved it here as it was away from the hustle and bustle of crowds and museums.

First of all the house is amazing! It's a 14th century villa that sits on a huge plot of land filled with olive trees and vineyards! And that's exactly our view from our room! Amazing! You can see that the house has a lot of history in winemaking (the wine that they produce for the villa is great btw) a... More

Well, we had some problems finding the villa. The house is on the main road, but our navigation system brought us exactly to a cemetery first. After that, try to imagine that we found the villa, stop the car right in the front of the gate and push the button that rings the bell. The gates slowly opened (automatically) and... More

Dear Ciprian, Thank you for your review and your choice of coming to visit us whilst in Tuscany.

We had the opportuity to visit the villa ad stay on for dinner. We remaind very impressed by the service and the resident chef's tastebud tickling recipes. The place is gorgeous and lands itself beautifully as a backdrop to a glass of wine at sunset. We really appreciated the selectionn of wines proposed and the personal attention given.

My husband and I were really satisfied with the whole experience in Villa Talente.
