We had the pleasure of spending a week at Villa Arbia (group of 8) and found our own little piece of heaven in Italy. On arrival we were astounded at the beauty of the property with Cyprus trees, grapes & figs ripe for the picking. We were warmly welcomed by the owner of the property Roz Conci and provided a tour of the Villa. The grounds are meticulously kept and once Roz opened up the Limonaia Room and Villa we knew we were in for a very special week. The Villa has been beautifully restored and we found the rooms very spacious and comfortable. Everything was spotless, beds comfortable and we had an ample supply of linens. The kitchen was well stocked for our purposes and Estate wines were plentiful! We had the privilege of having a wonderful cook, Carla, prepare dinner for us two of the evenings during our stay. The meal was simply spectacular and prepared with fresh local ingredients. The location particularly suited us as we were able to walk to the quaint town of Pianella for some fresh produce, drinks or gelato; enjoy quiet time by the pool; or tour the wonderful small towns that were minutes away by car. Of course, Siena is also a short distance where it was convenient to catch a train to visit Florence, Pisa, and many other wonderful places for the day. We must also mention what a wonderful help Valeria was with giving tips for areas of interest, directions & tour suggestions….thank you for your help Valeria!
We would like to keep Villa Arbia our own little secret…but of the time we spent touring Italy, Argiano in Chianti was a highlight and we wouldn’t hesitate to return.
Thank you Roz & Bruno for sharing your property with us (and for making our special occasion a memorable one)! We hope to make it back again one day soon!!
