“Exceeded All Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Our group of six adults spent a week at Casale di Villore in September 2012. Overall, our experience exceeded all our expectations - and by a large margin. The property is simply beautiful and commands an incredible view of the Tuscan countryside. It is ideally located between midway between Florence and Siena and is an easy drive to many Tuscan towns. But the property is so pleasant that you hardly need to leave.

Our accommodations were outstanding - exceptionally clean, well furnished, and well stocked with cooking supplies. We rented the largest apartment because of the size of our group and it more than met our needs. In addition, it was a very good value.

Our host, Antonio, made our visit exceptional. He was friendly and accessible and provided excellent restaurant and sightseeing recommendations, driving directions, and information about Tuscany.

Our stay here was outstanding and we really hated to leave. I look forward to returning and would highly recommend Casale di Villore.

My wife and I shared a wonderful villa at Casale di Villore with four of our friends. Villore is beautifully situated atop a hillside looking west towards San Gimignano, which can be seen off in the distance. You can see beautiful sunsets looking out over olive groves and the Tuscan valley. While Villore is out in the quiet countryside, it's still a reasonable car ride to many great places - Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, wineries on the Chianti trail and many other places. Antonio is very friendly and helpful and has many recommendations for memorable things to do. He'll make arrangements for you, if you'd like. The villas are incredible. Old world charm outside and very nicely appointed inside. Internet access is hit or miss; but otherwise everything thing is great. We highly recommend it.

From the moment we arrived at Casale di Villore we knew that our stay was going to be unforgettable. There in front of us was a panaoramic view of paradise; an infinity pool surrounded by olive trees and a vineyard as far as the eye could see. Our accomodations were great too-we loved all of the decorating 'touches'. Antonio was always so helpful-from suggesting great restaurants nearby, to giving perfect directions to booking us at Monterinaldi, where we had a great lunch and tour of the winecellar etc. It felt so much like 'home' that none of us wanted to leave! We all agreed that we will return to Casale di Villore in the future.

I was lucky enough to recently stay at Casale di Villore. The place is beautiful. It is clean, the owners are so friendly and helpful, To sit there in the evening and watch the sun go down was spectacular. I would highly recommend Casale di Villore if you plan to visit Tuscany, you may never want to leave.

Our stay at the Casa de Villore exceeded our expectations way beyond our hopes. Antonio welcomed us really well in this wonderful place where we spent the greatest time of all ever. We strongly recommend this place which provide wonderful eyesights, and peaceful moments. Great for any family who wishes to discover Tuscany as Casa di Villore is nearby all the greatest location.
And, the food is outstanding, and the wines... there would be so much to say.

after hours of extending internet searching we discovered this little paradise on the web .Finally we found what we thought should be the vacation house in Tuscany.How nice it was to arrive and discover that the website of Casale Di Villore as well as all the reviews where what we expected. Location,Location,Location ! Perfect between Firenze and Sienna
The property is gorgeous,the view stunning,the sight at the swimmingpool phenomenal.There is a family atmosphere,The owner is always around and his presence shows how much he cares about the place, maintenance of flowers,swimmingpool...the good feeling of his guests, we especially appreciated the friendly advice for day excursions...The appartement we rent was spacious,nicely furnished.Only the bathroom was a bit old fashion and to small but that is unimportant if you see all the nice things this casa has to offer. We really hope to go back some day !

So, your children have left home and it is time for the long promised trip to Tuscany. Search no more.... Our life trip included Spain, France, Italy and the Greek Islands and we are constantly asked "what was the highlight?" Of course this is a question which is almost impossible to answer, but when pushed, we always come up with two places. Our week with Antonio driving through the Chianti area, getting lost over and over (and not caring because we were so in heaven that it didn't matter) then arriving home to Il Casale di Villore for dinner and that gorgeous Tuscan sunset each evening. Do not go to Tuscany without spending some time here :-)
(oh yeah, the other place was Annecy in France, but that is for another review)
