I would echo the previous comments re the extras. We were grateful for the previous reviews and as such did not succumb to the charms of the complimentary drinks etc. As a result we did not incur any charges although, two young couples staying at the same time as us were stung!! As were a party of four Italian guests... More

To be honest, I'm rather mystified by these high ratings. We found this Villa lived up to its name, rather Grotty. The food was extremely mediocre, the so called 'romantic dinner' was a farce, more like Fawlty Towers than a 4* hotel. It was cold, and saucepans etc were brought to the table. The starter (no menu to choose from)... More

My girlfriend and I just returned home from an amazing visit to villa la grotta. Gianluca is the perfect host arranging events and recommending restaurants for us.

We stayed here in April and have delayed writing as we had been waiting to see what Secret Escapes would do about our complaint. We were not satisfied with either their or Villa la Grotta's responses, hence this review. On the plus side, the location is lovely and we had some excellent meals and extremely good and good value wine... More

We booked this stay as two couples through Secret Escapes. Gianluca and Daphne were amazing hosts who seemingly went out of their way to tell us about places to visit and things to do. The villa itself was charming too, but it was a shame that it felt very cold, but that may have had something to do with its... More

We have just returned after a visit to Villa La Grotta. Daphne and Gianlucca were fantastic hosts who work very hard at making your visit to Tuscany an enjoyable stay. They could not do enough for us including recommending great restaurants and will organise wine tasting trips if required. We ate at the villa and enjoyed the experience of true... More

Me and my husband have just recently returned from a 5 day break at “Villa La Grotta” in Tuscany, San Giustino Valdarno. Wow! What a delightful and exquisite Villa !

My wife and I had always wanted to explore Tuscany! Villa la Grotta is the perfect authentic Tuscan retreat, only 25 minutes from Arezzo, a 12 century fortified town with a beautiful hilltop park with panoramic views of Tuscany and a fantastic town square with great local food. And an hour away from Florence which didn't disappoint! The highlight however... More

My partner and I went to Tuscany to scout for an important film production, about the true aspects of Tuscany. We have been searching and scouting for the perfect locations for many days. Finally we reached Villa La Grotta, which visually appeared to be a wonderfully balanced combination of antique and modern Tuscany. We immediately felt to ‘belong’ to the... More
