“Perfect peace!”
Reviewed August 23, 2019 for a stay in July 2019

This is a gem hidden away in the countryside. One needs a car to get out and about but the scenery is so spectacular it makes even going to the local shop in Toano or Quara a joy! The accommodation is beautiful and we had privacy and lots of space. It was well equipped although lacking a dustpan and brush!!
We loved sitting on the terrace watching the butterflies on the Buddleia and beyond that the vineyard.
The pool was great; a tight squeeze for more than two people at a time but we just adjusted the times we went.
Richard and Janet were great and very helpful.
A lovely stay and we miss the accommodation, the area, the scenery and most of all the peace and quiet we needed.

“A wonderful Villa in tranquil surroundings”
Reviewed August 22, 2017 for a stay in July 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This was a wonderful Villa with spectacular views of the stunning Italian countryside. It was such a peaceful place to stay. Richard and Janet the local Managers were extremely helpful throughout and couldn't do enough for us,they recommended places to visit including organising an event to the local cheese producers which will stay with us for a long time. We enjoyed other activities such as an Italian cooking lesson which was amazing and would recommend as well as a watercolour painting session with a !oval artist fantastic. The villa is well placed for wonderful walks and emmersing yourself in the Italian culture. We are planning to return next year , and we have travelled a great deal around Italy but enjoyed it that much and cannot recommend it enough,it is a gem of a place!

“A Slice of Italian Heaven”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

OMG! I have just got back from a week I'll remember forever. A friend recommended La Stalla to me, and I was not disappointed. This picture postcard pretty part of Italy is a real hidden jewel. I normally visit Tuscany, but this region of Italy is far less crowded with tourists than its neighbour, the food is out of this world, and the scenery stunning.
We had planned to do loads of sightseeing, but La Stalla was so pretty, so relaxed, so unique, that most days we just hung out by the pool, tried our hand at some Italian cooking, or wandered around the countryside.
The house itself has a very special feel. By the end of the first day, it felt like my own home! Whoever decorated the rooms, has that special skill of being able to match odd and quirky pieces of furniture and ornaments to create something very special. It might look casual, but you can tell that a lot of love and care has gone into finding all these treasures.
I cannot say enough about this house. it was a very very special find, and I'll be going back next year for sure. Who needs Tuscany!
PS. Don't forget to buy some Parmesan cheese from the nearby cheese maker.,

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent 7 nights here and it just wasn't enough hence we have booked to come back next year. The property was beautiful and the information provided by Polly on the local area in particular the restaurants was spot on, we had many favourites, the only issue was we didn't get the chance to visit more. The local cheese factory is a must and we are still enjoying the amazing parmesan today. I would agree with the other reviews that the roads can be a little hairy but the view and picture perfect location is worth it. You really feel like you have experienced local village living.

“Great trip all round.”
Reviewed August 20, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

From start to finish, the service was excellent. From the initial information pack, to the help and information we received upon our arrival. We were really made to feel welcome.
The beautifully renovated property is in a very secluded area, so a car is a must. However, this doesn't detract from the fantastic location, fabulous views etc. There are small villages dotted around the area and certainly one really good restaurant a short drive away.
If there was anything slightly negative to say, it would be the condition of the local roads, they're poor to say the least. So my advice there is, don't use your own car to drive there, fly there and rent a car. This is only a minor point though, and it didn't take anything away from a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

“Idyllic location for a peaceful getaway”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed in La Stalla which is a beautifully renovated building at the edge of the vineyard. The views down the valley are breath-taking. The winding roads once you leave Toano are a driving joy but may not suit all travellers. The direction received in the advance pack are precise and ensure you find this unique property.
I cannot rate this place highly enough.
We were the only people renting any of the three properties on the site so the peace and quiet were unexpected but just what we needed. It may be different with others sharing the three properties but the private terrace overlooking the vineyard ensures your seclusion if required.
The welcome pack and indeed the personal welcome and detailed information of all the surrounding areas add to the total experience.
Excellent.
