The rooms are clean and nicely designed. We stayed in the attic room and the ceilling was very low which made our stay less comfortable. The pool was clean, however there wasn't enough sunbeds for all the guests. I would rate the stay 4 stars if it wasn't for the disapointing breakfasts. Unfortunately, there was a very limited choice of food, with absolutely no vegetables and no warm meals. There was only white bread and one type of cheese. We were forced to buy tomatos in the nearby store and sneak it into the cantine. The worst thing about the breakfast was the rotten fruit they gave us. That's a shame cause Villa La Grotta is a very nice place to stay except that thing.

Dear Mikołaj, with reference to your negatively surprising review we want to point out that since the beginning of your stay we gave you the possibility to choose the room to spend your vacation in Villa La Grotta among the rooms available in that moment and with this review you are criticizing the room that you chose yourself…. Furthermore we point out that our breakfast includes everyday as follow: ham, fontina cheese, salami, many different kinds of hot croissant, many different kinds of marmelades and fruit juices, nutella, butter, honey, boiled eggs, fresh milk, sandwich bread, baguettes, two different kinds of cereals, FRESH fruit, different kinds of yogurts, crisp bread, biscuits and two different kinds of cake. Furthermore we always provide to any guest freshly prepared tea, coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate or whatever any guses wants from our cafeteria. Of course all of this is included with the stay. Is all of this a limited choice of food???? Take care. Edoardo Villa La Grotta

I miss the time spent in Tuscany in this unique Villa. I'm planning to come back soon. Gianluca, the owner, is a great guy. Generous and always available, is evident that he loves his work and Villa la Grotta.

We stayed 3 nights at the Villa La Grotta and the location was ideal for our stay as we had a wedding at Il Borro some 3 km away. Our experience was an excellent stay from the moment we stepped at the reception till we need to departed back to Malta. The accommodation was in the farmhouse which was ideal and served our purpose and the property has all the amenities one would require such as a large clean swimming pool/umbrellas/deckchairs and garden. The daily great breakfast was served by a sweet lady, an excellent service of Edoardo at the reception and Gianluca, nice gentleman and owner who greeted us and made us feel welcome providing all the information we required about the area and the town of San Guistino Valderno. Villa La Grotta can be reached easily from the town by a 15 min walk situated in the peaceful countryside. One can also enjoy a pizza/meal and a drink in one of the bars or restaurants but need would need personal transport for other nearby towns or places of interest. We were only troubled by some mosquitos during our stay as it was the hot season but we have to deal with that also in our country...For the rest, I really recommend this place if you need accommodation in this part of Tuscany as you are in great hands!

We were treated to an excellent service from the very helpful staff throughout our stay. The owner/manager makes everyone feel welcome; usually offering a local speciality soup on one of the nights...full of homely goodness from yesteryear in Tuscany. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and nothing seems too much trouble for them at any time of the day. Our appartment, like the swimming pool was cool...though a fan recommended in height of summer should the breeze from the nearest mountain not be forthcoming perhaps. Highly recommmended for a retreat into the Tuscan countryside, full of local tastings (wine/olive oil on bread) and lovely less well-known towns to visit. We would recommend going on the 'Da Vinci' exhibition outing with Guan-Luca to the next village (15 mins); follow him to a small volunteer-run building and learn things about the Mona Lisa, the genius artist/designer himself;...your short trip will end with a viewing of one of the painting's features in the village itself. Villa Notes: Good parking, spacious accommodation, bespoke cooking by owner if you order in advance. Good Pizzaria in village (10 mins walk)

We rented a car and drove from Pisa. We arrived at villa la grotta late at night, and were greeted by the charming owner, Gianluca. We stayed in the Franscesca suite, a beatuiful Italian little apartment. The villa has a really nice swimming pool with a cooling temperature which was nice because of the warm weather. The staff was always very welcoming and friendly and had great recommendations for restaurants etc.
