“Great Location, property and near to everywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2009

We stayed at Il Guardia from the 10th to 20th May and we would like to share our wonderful experience with you.

Firstly, we were very impressed with the warm welcome at the estate and by how Patrick Spencer (Marketing manager) made great efforts to make our stay very enjoyable.

The villa is very well maintained and everything that was mentioned in the list was there. On the first morning when we noticed the microwave missing, we informed Patrick and one was sent to the villa within the morning.

On the first night of arrival, we asked for recommendations for dinner and we were pleasantly surprised by Patrick's recommendation. We had the best steak of our life and the prices were very reasonable. Throughout our whole stay, we were very pleased by how Patrick recommended good quality to price locations. Having travelled in other regions, we have had bad experiences of other PR persons recommending over-priced places.

The only time we experienced an "okay" dinner and mentioned it in passing to Patrick, he immediately brought us a bottle of wine the next day and we thought it was such a nice gesture.

The only negative point about the villa is the lack of washing machine as mentioned in the list. We thought there were coin-operated ones and did not bring as many clothes. Thankfully, Patrick solved the issue by helping us with the laundry.

The property was fantastically maintained and it had great toiletry ;-). Super charming place that is a not more than 100km from all the major sights, which is great as eating in the neighbourhood was much cheaper than having meals at Florence or Sienna.

The Villa Selva is absolutely beautiful! Staying there is better than any 4-5 star hotel. The hosts are delightful; the rooms and general location are ideal. I have sent many friends to the villa and everyone has loved it. My only fear is that it will be "discovered" by the masses and I won't be able to get a reservation when I need it.
