My wife, daughter, and I have just returned from a week-long stay at Villa il Pozzo, and we could not have been more pleased by our experience. The villa itself is superb - the apartment we rented (il volte) was huge and cool (temperature-wise), despite the 37º outside temperature, and cool (architecturally) with neat, brick arched ceilings throughout, and tastefully decorated.

Gianni and Alessandro are extremely friendly, enjoyable, and kind hosts. They hosted an interesting and casual wine-tasting session for my wife and I, introducing me to their fine Tenuta della Luia. If you read this review and stay at Villa il Pozzo, ask Gianni to let you try some of his "Hello, Kitty!" rosé ;-)

The villa is located on top of a hill, overlooking the Gori family's olive trees and vineyards. The vantage from the villa's terraces are breathtaking, with views of the green and gold rolling Tuscan hills as far as the eye can see, interrupted by the occasional medieval church tower and a splendid silhouette of the towers of San Gimignano.

The villa's pool is large, cool, and clean. If my nine year-old daughter had her way, we would have spent every one of our seven days just hanging out at the pool. When we weren't spending time at the pool, we were able to visit Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano, and Certaldo, all at most an easy 45 minutes away from the villa.

Villa il Pozzo is a picture-perfect little pocket of Tuscan paradise - highly recommended!

You know that sinking feeling when you have spent months planning your big vacation, researched everything, and then you are driving up and it looks nothing like the pictures? Well thats NOT going to happen at the fabulous Villa il Pozzo! Everything was even more beautiful than the pictures, and Alessandro was kinder, more helpful than we could have hoped, helped with dinner reservations, touring suggestions and even met us at 11 pm when we locked ourselves out.
Kitchen have enough to make simple meals, beds are very firm (I didn't mind this), and AC units worked wonderfully, even in the July heat
We were traveling with five children, and had the upstairs units. We enjoyed the beautiful piano, antiques, fabulous times on the patio with views of the tuscan hills. The pool is refreshing and lovely- hills surrounding with vineyards, olive trees and even a wild boar (a baby)
The drive from Certaldo was about 10 minutes, great restaurant down the street, wonderful, personal wine tasting that was educational for all. We are anxious for our wine to arrive by mail
but can it taste as good without the view?
I'm a picky traveler and I feel comfortable recommending this beautiful spot to a couple for a romantic get a way or a family for a great base to explore tuscany.

I have been to Villa Il Pozzo three times and every time our experience has been wonderful. We were lucky enough to stay at the villa for a week with our family and friends this June. We celebrated our wedding by having a garden reception back at the villa. The villa is seriously stunning. Each apartment is different,but beautifully decorated throughout. The views are breathtaking and all of our guests were blown away by the sheer beauty. The owners of Villa Il Pozzo are super helpful and very sweet. THe day after the wedding we josted a pizza party at the pool. Tasty pizzas were cooked in the wood burning pizza oven and wine tasting was enjoyed. A wonderful, wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Bella Vista has the most beautiful views!

My friend got married here in June, and we were lucky enough to stay - it is such a special place! It is a little further out of Certaldo than they say (about 6km), but it really doesn't matter - the views are breathtaking, and the owners are just so helpful & friendly. I would more than recommend this to anyone looking to get married or groups looking for a house to use. Wine is also very special (made on site) and facilities are great!

We stayed here for 5 days and found it a perfect location to explore Tuscany (within 30 minutes drive from Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano, Voltera etc.) Rooms are apartment like so self catering - recommended to keep overall costs down. Good wine is made on the farm and enjoyable winetasting was presented by Gianni (the one son). Service is typical laid-back Italian style. Huge pool, beautiful views and quiet country feel to round off a 9 out of 10 experience.
