La Pieve Marsina Tuscan Retreat
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We stayed in April 2012 - TA doesn't let me choose that year. I was requested to repeat my review because the name was changed.

We stayed at this villa for four nights but it was just not long enough. We were two couples and really enjoyed the house as well as the location. We rented a car and drove from Florence, and explored Siena, San Giamagno and the wine country from this location. Unfortunately the weather was lacking when we were there (rain) so we did not get to enjoy the outside as much as we would have liked, although we did try out the spa (hot tub to us Canadians) and enjoyed the fireplace nightly. Gabrielle prepared the hot tub for us and brought us plenty of firewood for the length of our stay. This house is less than 30 minutes from Siena, which was great as we went there on Sunday to get groceries and again another evening. People staying here should be aware that you will need to bring your basics with you, which is apparently not uncommon in Italy however, most other places we stayed had sugar, salt, oil and toilet paper sufficient for a short stay. We thought the two single beds pushed together were more comfortable than the master, which would be my only criticism as being in need of replacement. The house is rustic, and I would probably compare it to staying at a cabin as it had the amenities but was not luxurious.

Gabrielle was very friendly and accommodating and his attention certainly added to our stay. The location was excellent and the surrounding area beautiful. The nearby town Gaiole had great restaurants and we ate out two nights. I would definitely return to this villa.

I spent 1 entire week in this microscopic village, a real ancient jewel.
The structure is totally renewed and the landscape...what to say...just AMAZING!!!
Even if you sleep in the middle of countryside, where the only rumor at nights is the chirping of crickets, with a car you can easily reach Siena in only 20 minutes and Florence in 1 hour.
Gabriele, the owner, and his funny dachshund "Bond" gave us a warm welcome and a lot of useful suggestions, in particular way for good meat restaurants.
