“Escellent base to explore southern Tuscany and to visit the Cascate in Saturnia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

This place is immaculate inside and out...we have stayed in 4 or 5 star hotels not as nice...I would highly recommend it if you want to visit this area. Lauro and his wife Allesandria are very helpful...but neither speak any English. Excellent breakfast.
We both thought that this part of southern Tuscany was beautiful.
Tip...When you go down to the The Cascate del Gorello (also called Mulino) Saturnia do not take any valuables...it is only about a mile from Villa Giulia. There are plenty of places to park the car. Buy some swimming shoes from Decathlon as it's pebbly, rocky and slippy. The temperature is a constant 37 degrees. 800 litres of water come down the waterfall per second. It's a phenomenon...and it is not man made but has evolved over millions of years...it's unique. There are no charges for parking and using the waterfall, pools and river...take a picnic. Lauro has free bikes if you want to bike it down. Be prepared to smell of sulphur...it's like rotten eggs. Have a mud bath.
There are a few places to eat in Saturnia...it is a village.
I would recommend Hosteria Pizzeria Il Cantuccio di Anastasia...it's just off the main piazza...Via G Ciacci.
We ate there 2 nights as all the locals were eating there whilst the other places were fairly empty...a good sign.
Fantastic food...we shared Antipasto and Chinghiale (wild boar)...for Contorni we had Fagioli All'Uccelletta (you must try it)...Lauro will give you a card that entitles you to a 10% discount.
Tip...to walk it into Saturnia from the hotel...go across the road to a track and go up it straight into the village...a 10 minute stroll...no need to take the car...coming back in the dark you will need a torch...(I picked a head torch up from Home Bargains for £1.49).
Visit Pitigliano and Sorano...both typical Italian hill towns...with a drive through picturesque southern Tuscany.
If you have time, visit Monte Argentario on the coast...it was an island but now is a lagoon and nature reserve...we have noticed it whilst flying in daytime and thought about going to have a look if we were ever in the area. We went for a swim in the sea and had a whole beach to ourselves. The two ports of Porto Ercole and Porto Sto Stefano are worth a visit.
The island of Giglio is within sight, they were trying to raise the Concordia whilst we were there. We will definitely stay at Villa Giulia again. Speriamo!

Room Tip: All rooms excellent.

We stayed in the Villa Giulia in July 2012. Me and my boyfriend were travelling with my parents. All of us loved Villa Giulia! The rooms, the service, the food, all was excellent.
The rooms are clean, spacious and really beautiful.
The owner is really kind and helpful and we were able to understand each other despite he doesn`t speak much english.
We also loved the breakfast, it was rich and tasty. We also got served some local products and a great coffee.
Staying in Villa Giulia was the best experience ever and we trully hope to come back.
