“We loved our Tuscan home..and host!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed for one short week (last week!) in this villa and loved it! The location is absolutely perfect, the apartment is absolutely delightful and Antonella is absolutely wonderful. It's set high on a hill in an antique vineyard/farmhouse overlooking gorgeous Tuscan countryside; situated perfectly to visit Siena, San Gimignano, Florence, Pisa and the Chianti regions. (Note: Be sure to make a reservation to tour the winery right up the hill: Castello della Paneretta.) Antonella Stella is as lovely as her name sounds; she is the perfect host and provides a helpful guest guide with local tips for day trip, regional restaurants and shopping. If you are planning a trip to Tuscany--look no further than this little gem! Buon Viaggio.
