Our family just got back from a 30 day stay at this villa. This was the most amazing place! We were so glad that we chose a traditional villa and not a modern one. We truly felt like we had a Tuscan experience. The villa is older but lovely. We had so many nice long dinners out on the veranda. The views are amazing. The villa is surrounded by vineyards. We saw horses walking down the trail and wild boars. There is a lemon tree and lime tree and apple tree on the property. The pool was fantastic after a hot summer day of being out and about. We got to enjoy the local town of San Casciano. The people there are so friendly and kind. A special treat was seeing the hot air balloons every morning around 6:30 am. Just magnificent! The air conditioning was cool and we were very comfortable sleeping. I can not say enough good things about the owner, Ubaldo and the Housemaster, Guilia. They were the most helpful and kind hosts.We had a medical issue and Ubaldo was extremely responsive and helpful. Guilia did an excellent job handling our large group. They both are truly amazing people and it was such a pleasure dealing with them. We made the most amazing family memories at this beautiful villa. I highly recommend you do the same.…
We had a beautiful stay at Acquapietra, it felt as home away from home. The location in the midst of the vineyards is stunning and the every corner of the house is decorated with so much love and care. Our room was very spacious, clean and pretty with comfortable beds plus we loved the delicious breakfast with homemade cakes and jams 💕. But most of all, Alice and Anna are amazing host - caring about all the small details - and we cannot wait to visit again soon.
The property looked exactly as described. Little ride through unpaved road took us to a very tranquil and unique place. Our room was ready and had stunning view. The nearby village has several great restaurants just 10 minutes drive with good quality of food and service. The house also has kitchen that can be used by guests. Florence is just 40 minutes drive and it’s perfect to relax at the guesthouse after sightseeing day in a busy city. If you are after hiking, this is the place with its hills and valley views. If you dream about authentic Tuscany’ experience, this is definitely the place to go.
A beautiful place to stay, relax and enjoy the italian way of life in the countryside. The host Alice is very nice and welcoming, the house is very cozy and the vineyards around the property are lovely to take a romantic walk through!
I have stayed only two nights in August and I wish I have booked more. Owner is great, very friendly and full of useful tips to make best of your stay. Her breakfast cakes are absolutely delicious. Also the surrounding is simply stunning. If you plan to stay in the area it's a place to be.
After 2 weeks of touring on a bike all the way from Scotland we finally arrived at this B&B...the moment we started to decent down in to the Vineyard valleys we knew this was going to be an experience we will never forget. The moment we arrived at the house...we were warmly greeted by Alice and then accompanied to our room (the whole house / room(s) decorated in a very artistic vibe), which was very neat clean and tidy...we loved it! We loved the view of the vineyards outside our window...and every other part of the property was just perfect. Breakfast spread was very nice clean and simple...especially when you are enjoying it from a balcony with an amazing backdrop of hills and vineyards....living the dream. We also had the opportunity to meet Alice's partner Carlo and Pietro, they were both amazing. Alice and Carlo were very helpful and went an extra mile to give us tips and information about restaurants,winery's, places to visit as well as nice roads to ride on as they are also bikers themselves...this was very much appreciated and we will never forget this experience! We will definitely visit again in the near future...and would like to thank the family and staff for an amazing stay which we will never forget xxxx…
We arrived to Acquapietra in the afternoon after a long ride and we were lovely recieved by the owner. She explained the property to us and showed us around. Her and her partner were very helpful, informative and great hosts. They have lots of tips on how to get to all the places and very good recomendations for food and wine. They have a dog and a cat who are super cool and friendly. The rooms are clean and very very nicely decorated with an artistic touch. Also the breakfast is typical mediterranean with home made bread and jam, we really enjoyed it. Overall our stay in Acquapietra was fantastic and we hope to come back next time to actually enjoy the peacefull property a bit more as this time it was a quick stay of two days. Thanks a lot
We stayed for two nights at Acquapietra during our tour around Tuscany. The place looks exactly as on the pictures, including stunning panoramic views of vineyards. It is a typical beautiful Tuscany house with modern facilities and unique spirit. Our room was spacious and clean. The homemade breakfast was fantastico. Alice gave us great tips for visiting exclusive and authentic places in Florence. Check-in and check-out went smooth. Thanks a lot to Alice and her team Kelly & Carren! We enjoyed our stay very much!
This place is great for peaceful holidays, far away from city crowds but yet not far from Florence or Siena. The room has a rustic decor and nice view on the vineyards, it is very clean and despite lack of air conditioning it is nicely cool at night, one can sleep with open windows. This is a place, where you can feel "like at home", the owners are very friendly and happy to give tips about places to visit in Tuscany. The breakfast is delicious, served on the terasse. We cooked our own dinner in the common kitchen (there are pasta and sauces available for a small charge) but you can also ask the owners to cook for you. Overall it was a great experience and we highly recommend this place.
Acquapietra was recommended by a friend and it exceeded our expectations. We stayed for 4 nights last week and our hosts Alice and Carlo were beyond helpful with travel tips and even printing maps for excursions. Our room was spacious and clean, the shower to die for and breakfast, including fresh fruit and a freshly baked cake, was served on the covered terrace overlooking the valley and vineyards. Little 17 month old Pietre was delightfully entertaining though unobtrusive. The drive down the 'white road' through the olive grove and vineyards gave a true Tuscan feel. The location close to the little township of San Casciano was a great central point for exploring the region. Thank you Alice and Carlo, we will remember our stay with much fondness. Sonia and John.
