We were graciously hosted by Paola and Fabrizio at Villa Calcinaia during our stay in Italy. This has been a second home for my boyfriend for many years when he visits the Florence/Tuscany area annually. It was my first trip and he insisted on giving me a true, authentic and utterly romantic Tuscan experience at Villa Calcinaia! As our car climbed the hill from Lastra a Signa, my heart swelled, taking in the landscape and the stone wall lined road; rolling hills of olive groves, vineyards, cypress trees, mimosa and magical umbrella pines. It was the scene you picture when you set your heart on seeing and experiencing Tuscany! The terrain naturally draws you in, with filtered light and color, but as the gate opens to Villa Calcinaia, you are officially welcomed to Tuscany! A cypress lined driveway leads you to their beautiful homestead, where you are tucked in to an olive grove. This is where your journey officially begins; with a beautiful place to call home while you explore this magical region called Tuscany. Paola made her home, Villa I Cipressi (a converted barn on her family’s property), our home for a week. Her heart was with us everywhere we went, with recommendations, tips and best wishes that went beyond any type of “hosting” an Airbnb would typically provide. It was a perfect blend of privacy, personalized guidance and genuine interest in giving us a memorable experience! Paola loves her home and her Tuscan roots and goes out of her way to bring that love to every guest she welcomes! It’s perfectly located; “moments away” from the village of Lastra a Signa, 15 minutes from the center of Florence and minutes from the train and Autostrada/Superstrada; making visits to neighboring Tuscan cities and towns easily accessible (Pienza, Montepulciano, Sienna, Lucca). Whether it’s your first time in Tuscany or you’ve been called back (and you will be), Villa Calcinaia is the place to call home while you explore this magical region; rich in history, architecture, people, food, wine that will create memories and friendships to last a lifetime.

I have never stayed in a guest rental as beautiful, accommodating and romantic as this one was for both my wife and myself. A short drive to Florence for the day, rest, wine and good company by the pool in the late afternoon. A terrific pair of hosts with cooking lessons thrown in for good measure. I want to return here every year.

We brought a group to Italy staying part of the time with Paola. She is incredibly gracious and kind. The Villa is beautiful and all had a wonderful time! I cannot say enough and would encourage anyone to stay there! It was a highlight of our trip and all look forward to returning! Thank you Paola, this group from South Jersey and New Covenant Community Church loves you dearly!

Buongiorno. I think that says it all for this beautiful place. My husband and I had been traveling the US for many years. Our dream was to do the same in Europe. So with airbnb today, it’s easy to get a fairly nice place. We traveled Portugal, Spain and then we came to Italy. Our first stop was Florence because we had to. You know all roads lead from Florence - Bella Toscana. Not one place can compare with the beauty and feeling of welcome that we have experienced here and especially the Florence Home Rentals villas. We want for nothing and our hostess and friend Paola makes sure of that. We have a hard time leaving this beautiful and serene 5 acres of olives and vineyards. The villa where we are staying is equipped with everything you would have in your home and more. Did I mention the infinity pool to cool off with. Of course, If you like excellent wine, the best olive oil and a friendly bon jgiorno, it’s all over here. It’s really a home “under the Tucson Sun”. Please don’t shortcut your stay here. There is so much to do and see and you are in the center of it all, while still having the peace and beauty of the Tuscan countryside. Sandra J.

I think this was our 5th stay with Paola and Fabrizio which obviously indicates our amazing experience with their property and them. We have stayed there with couples as well as by ourselves and can't speak highly enough. Ordinarily we have stayed in the villa apartment which has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, kitchen and family area which can be split with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths on each side. This was our first time staying in the cottage which is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, stand alone building. It has a kitchen and family area as well as a large living room. The decor is charming and lends itself to the old and new. Paola has equipped all of the apartments and cottage with all the basics including coffee, so you don't have to miss your morning coffee. She has thought of pretty much everything.The large property is nestled on acres of olive trees which is an amazing and beautiful setting as well as having a swimming pool available for all guests. Paola is also an excellent guide for what to do and where to go. I highly recommend this property no matter how small or large your group is. Kathy M

Paola and Fabrizio are fantastic hosts in an absolutely stunning villa in the beautiful hills of Tuscany. I’ve been here with family in the past during the summer and also a romantic getaway with my fiancé in the fall. Both times of year are perfect in their own way. They have a pool in their backyard amongst the cypress trees, and a large open landscape you can have the best evening walks through. They are so close to the city of Florence and all of the beautiful surrounding Tuscan glories you can easily drive to and explore. And even when you want to just relax for a day, their villa is so peaceful and comfortable, you feel right at home. Paola is so friendly, and keeps the villa and guest house very clean and comfortable for her guests. Thank you so much Paola and Fabrizio!

A group of 8 of us stayed at Paola's home for a week in June. I cannot begin to tell you how lovely this place was! The villa and estate is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly accommodated our group. We each (4 couples) had our own room and bathroom and shared a main area equipped with kitchen and living room. My favorite part of this villa is the beautiful outdoor space where we spent many days by the pool. Paola, the villa owner, is wonderful. She was such an excellent host, and went above and beyond to help accommodate our group. She provided the best suggestions for what to do and see while in Florence, and would even provide us with transportation to and from train stations and the local grocery store. She is such a wonderful person that made our trip so enjoyable. We absolutely would recommend this villa to others!

Paola and Fabrizio are great hosts in amazing apartementos in the middle of Tuscany. You don't need any quides, just ask Paola. Love the restaurants nearby. You just have to check Da Delfina, it is a must. And You need a car. The everything is perfect.

We stayed in Villa in spring 2017 for a extended weekend. Very good, silent location, nice owners and the best olive I have ever get. We came by plane to Bologne and then took the rented car. Villa in Lastra la Singa is great place to start one day trips to Florence, Siena and another sights in Tuscany. We also used train (5 min from villa to train station) to visit Florence, Piza and even Roma (2 hours with fast train). We recommend to visit local restaurant La Musica (dont judge it by the first impression)!

Our hostess Paola made this a week in a heavenly place for our group a 9 women traveling from Alaska. She met our every wish and anticipated so many things we didn’t even realize we would need - she introduced us to a tour/driving father and son team who made our travels a complete joy. I won’t elaborate on how many kind things she did for us as I would never want anyone to demand she provide as she did for us - please just allow her to be the gracious and fun host. Her Villa is magical and comfortable; enchanting really. I could not think of anything that would make this stay any better.
