“Heaven on Earth ”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

I have made numerous reviews but until now never enjoyed making one as i have with this.
This place is above perfection! The house is full of antiques and frescos with the most well found furniture and beautiful original features. From the moment we were greeted (lovely glass of Chianti wine) to the overall experience, this is a place where no one is allowed to give less then 5 stars. EVERYTHING is just fabulous. Amazing 12th century manor house, lovingly restored and maintained to perfection. The rooms are far beyond what you would expect from an agriturismo. We booked 2 rooms and to saying we are happy with everything is just not enough. Comfortable beds, extremely well equipped and decorated with the most charming taste. The views from our room (#1) was just like a painting.. Absolutely amazing...the most perfect Tuscan experience, period!!
The manor house, gardens and swimming pool are so well maintained and all of the above made us re-schedule our itinerary and decided to spend a whole day enjoying it all.
Last to mention the most delicious food served for breakfast and dinner and the hospitality of the people working in Villa Il Leccio is second to none. Friendly, available, honest, really made us feel as the Villa was ours (I wish) ... Close to Florence (20 minutes drive ) also to Siena and San Gimignano makes it the perfect place to stay.
Arrivederci!

We can not rate Villa Il Leccio highly enough. We were fortunate enough that our wedding planner found this stunning venue for us and in August 2013 the Villa played host to our families for a week long stay and we got married at the property.
During our stay Gianda, Maria Lusia and Gregorio were absolutely amazing, incredibly welcoming and became like our extended family. We enjoyed a full board stay with the family also catering for our wedding and Gianda made our spectacular wedding cake. The food throughout the stay was sumptuous and plentiful and the family were very accommodating of a large group with mixed requirements. The Villa also arranged a wine tasting evening and pizza making class for our guests during the stay.
Gianda was an absolute angel on our big day ensuring everything went smoothly and flowers, table decorations, the ceremony etc. were set as we desired (even though she wasn't our 'official' wedding planner). We completely trusted the villa with our big day and wouldn't hesitate in recommending Villa Il Leccio to others considering it as an event venue or for a stay.
It is fair to stay we were left completely spellbound by our experience and can't wait to return one day!

We were very fortunate to be tipped off about this beautiful villa. The property dates back to the 12th century. They are doing a wonderful (and very costly) job of restoration. This is a family labour of love. The daughter of the current owner (Gianda), was our main contact. What a warm, wonderful person. Gianda and her mother ( Maria Luisa) do most of the cooking. Trust me, they know what they are doing! In addition to be a B+B, they also do dinners for larger groups, often on cruise line excisions. The property is very large.
We were very pleased with our large, very clean room. Gianda gave us a tour and some of the history of this beautiful villa, which was very interesting. They provided a really nice breakfast.
Overall, a wonderful stay. Highly recommended.
Below is a picture of a game hung on the wall. Obviously very old. They have no idea what is is or how to play it. Anyone out there have any idea??

Room Tip: Best if you have a car so you can travel to the nearby small towns and sights.

The Villa Il Leccio was the home base for our 5day wine tour of Chianti. The owners are so warm and welcoming that our group (15 in all) felt like family. The food was delicious, the accommodations comfortable and the Villa so clean one could eat off the floors. Our guide, Paolo, was delightful and very knowledgable of the entire region including Florence. Should you decide to stay her you will not be disappointed!!!!

We just returned from one of the best vacations we have ever taken and this was due in large part to our stay at Villa Il Leccio and the wonderful family who own it. We arrived for a six night stay after spending three nights in Florence. After the hectic pace of a city, Strata and especially the villa, were a breath of fresh air! We had a beautiful room, tastefully decorated, with two large windows overlooking the grounds. We loved hearing the history of the villa and seeing the furniture and unusual pieces that had been in the villa for generations. We felt most privileged to be able to stay in such a setting and become part of the family for a short time. Maria Luisa and her daughter Giada and son Gregorio made us feel so welcome. We took a cooking class at the Villa which was fun and toured the area with Paolo, a knowledgeable and friendly guide who really made all of our day trips fun, whether wine tasting or a trip to Cinque Terra. He anticipated everything and with his efficient and friendly manner, made our sightseeing smooth and stress-free. He was a real life-saver! Breakfast was delicious and bountiful with a variety of homemade foods as well as yogurt,cereals, fruit, etc. Meals in the evening were truly special and most of the ingredients were from the villa-olive oil, wine, jams,vegetables etc. On our last evening there, we were served a special dinner in the elegant dining room under a magnificent Murano glass chandelier with silver candelabras on the table. As the family gathered around we felt that we had known them for ages. We will most definitely be back. Anyone who wants the ultimate in luxury should stay in a five star hotel in a major city. Those who are looking for a true Tuscan experience in a beautiful villa with all the ammenities you need surrounded by warm and wonderful people should come to Villa Il Leccio. We'll be back!

Our stay here was simply wonderful! The host family all take the time to talk to you, give you advice on what to see, where to park, where to go. All the type of insider information you need to know when visiting the Tuscan area around Florence. Breakfast and dinner (reserve in advance) are a complete delight! All homemade with fresh fruits, vegetables, oils from the property. The rooms are quiet, and the windows open up to a fantastic view of the property.
To those that noted that they could not find the personnel, found the rooms were lacking a full length mirror, a soap dish, etc... I say: Do not expect a full hotel service from an Agriturismo! In return you get a personalized experience from a friendly family with a wonderful sense of hospitality!
