We stayed in the villa last summer for few days. It's a prefect location for exploring Tuscany and having a nice glass of wine in the evening- amazing view. The pool area is amazing and it was nice to chill out there after a full day of trips. Highly recommend and will be back for sure;-)

They had an honour system bar / fridge where we could help our selves to a variety of bottles of whiskey, vodka, gin etc and... More

The villa was our most memorable and relaxing one during our 2 week Italy vacation. Giovani and staff were very friendly and made us feel like family. We loved the grounds and it was perfect for our toddler to walk around. The pool was great and with the views we couldn't ask for more. Florence was only about a 20... More

A really lovely 14th C villa - modernized in the 17th C. The staff were lovely and super helpful. Wonderful views of the Tuscan countryside from the terrace and (infinity) pool side. 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. There were a few issues with the chef on the first night but this only added to our experience...pots and pans flying around in the kitchen and... More

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

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.
