VLG is a little taste of Tuscany but our dream stay ended there. Though the grounds, building, and rooms all had plenty of historic Italian character, ambiance, and cleanliness, we found VLG to be little more than a place to lay our heads at night. We booked our trip through travel zoo and were fully aware that our rooms were... More

Just had an amazing 7 nights in this beautiful Tuscan hotel. Set in a peaceful location with lovely gardens and pool , this was the perfect get away without the kids. We stayed in the Carvaggio suite which was spacious both downstairs and upstairs. As for Vlad, Simone and the rest of the staff, they couldn't do enough for you.... More

We stayed for 5 nights in July and loved every minute. Vlad and Simona were wonderful hosts, nothing too much trouble which made our stay even more enjoyable. You definitely need a car to get around and enjoy the wonderful scenery of Tuscany. Vlad will gladly draw you a map !! It was lovely to return after a day out,... More

I would go back just to see Vlad, Simona, and Luigi again!!! I don't care if I had to walk up fifty flights of stairs, the... More

Went in July and had a great time. We stayed in an attic room which was small but comfortable, and a great value since we used a travelzoo voucher. Found the staff collectively to be really friendly and helpful, which really made the stay nice. Overall just felt like it was a really pretty spot with relaxing ambience. other Pros:... More

We booked this gem of a villa after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and it was amazing. It was a bit of a trek from Pisa airport but that was all forgotten when we saw the beautiful villa including our spacious/amazing Michelangelo suite and the warm reception from Simona. Nothing was too much trouble for Vlad and Simona. They were... More

A few weeks ago we spent a lovely week at Villa La Grotta where I also celebrated my birthday. Upon arrival we were greeted by Simona and made to feel welcome. We stayed in the Michelangelo Suite which was lovely and spacious, there was ample parking space. Breakfast is relaxing and informal, with a great selection of continental meats, local... More

We had an amazing holiday based in Villa La Grotta. It is in an perfect location to visit Florence, Sienna and the Tuscan countryside. There are some great local restaurants, but you will need a car for most of them. The staff could not have been more helpful.

Unique location, in the middle of the quiet, the villa mantains the charm of the manor house where you feel at home, in a gorgeous home. Besides, the rooms are very cosy, large and bright, with the kitchen and even the fireplace. The elegant and familiar atmosphere and the sensation of well-being can be felt also thanks to the kind...

Despite a couple of initial doubts about the rural location and the complete silence around the pool, we soon fell under the spell of this lovely place. The villa is traditionally furnished and very comfortable. The only thing lacking was a balcony although we had big windows that could be opened wide and overlooked a wooded area behind the villa,...
