“Wonderful villa, great location within reach of most major cities in Tuscany”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We enjoyed a truly wonderful week here with three generations of our family in August 2013. Our boys (aged 2 and 5 years) loved the pool which has spectacular views.

The villa is spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could need for your stay. We enjoyed day trips to San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Pisa, Florence, all of which are within an hour or so of the villa.

Most notably, Mary Ann was hugely attentive when we had a medical incident and needed her help in organising the delivery of a wheelchair. She organised a local liaison to speak with the courier company and couldn't have been more helpful.

Also worth noting is the fact that the Mosquitos were almost non existant here in comparison with Rome, possibly due to the hilltop breeze that you enjoy whilst at Azzurra.

We loved our sundowners overlooking the wonderful views across the hills whilst enjoying the lovely wildlife in the gorgeous lavender border - butterflies, geckos, spectacular hummingbird moths, bees, crickets and lots more.

We hope to visit again and would love to spend longer here next time as there was plenty more to explore.

Thank you Mary Ann for a wonderful and memorable week.

“Beautiful villa with lovely views of Tuscany!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Azzurra is a beautiful villa set in the heart of Tuscany, situated only 20 minutes from San Gimignano and Volterra. Perfect for a family holiday, the villa was immaculate and well-presented retaining traditional Tuscan charm and comfort. Mary Ann, the owner, was extremely helpful in providing information, and the villa's quiet and remote location offered a relaxing stay.

“Amazingly relaxful Tuscan villa”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is a great place to stay if you're looking for a real getaway in Tuscany. The villa, as other guests have said, is an amazing place to stay and very well presented - extremely comfy beds, a well stocked kitchen, wifi and amazing views. Mary Ann, the owner, sent us lots of really helpful information beforehand making it easy to find supermarkets, restaurants and of course the villa, which feels like its in the middle of nowhere but is perfectly positioned at the end of a dirt track halfway between the beautiful hilltop towns of San Gimignano and Volterra.

“Great place to relax with girlfriends!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

My 3 best friends and I travelled here in September and still think about it EVERYDAY! That is actually what brought me back to this site ....and I realized I hadnt left a review. Azzurra was the best part of our stay in Italy and has us day dreaming about it weekly over email. We had the chance to stay through the recommendation of a good friend. He told us we would love it more than anything, and we did. We spend our days there and did not leave because of the stunning views and amazing kitchen. We had all the dishes, pots, utensils we could need....and cooked the best meals we had in Italy. The owner provided us with such comprehensive details there was really NOTHING left out from where we could buy essentials to where we should eat in town. The directions and instructions were also perfect. I really cannot describe the relaxation you get here with words...we enjoyed a sunset daily with wines and cheese. The pool was great...! The sheets smelled like perfection...! ahhh...I want to go back, NOW!

“Perfect location and accomodations for a party of six to enjoy Tuscany.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

people found this review helpful

Azzurra seemed to be a good fit for our group of six - parents with adult daughters and boyfriends. And, it was. The three bedrooms are tastefully decorated, spacious, and comfortable. The house (apartment) spacious throughout and complete with all the amenities. The complete kitchen enabled us to have full meals and enjoy the patio for dining. I especially liked being able to harvest garden herbs for cooking. I only wished the laundry instructions were in English.

The location is ideally situated in the heart of Tuscany. From the pool you can see Volterra and you are only minutes from most other sites or trains. We took the train into Florence which proved to be perfect; no hassles driving into Florence and the train station is in the middle of town.

Overall a great experience punctuated by helpful and timely information from the owner.

“Azzurra - Tutto Bene!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Azzurra for a week in July 2012. It was a perfect getaway with great amenities, an amazing view and a fabulous pool. The central location in Tuscany made it easy to do day trips to San Gimignano, Volterra, Assisi etc.
The apartment was great for our family (two teenage girls), and we met some great people from the UK staying in an adjacent unit. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped, and the hilltop location provided nighttime breezes to keep the rooms very comfortable despite not having air conditioning. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this location and rental to anyone looking for a great Tuscan vacation spot.
