“Idyllic Tuscan retreat set in stunning countryside managed by a delightful couple.”
Reviewed October 20, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

From the very first email contact to saying our farewell the service was top class. The property exceeded expectations from the images and description on the website. A Tuscan farmhouse with stunning views and its own swimming pool run by a friendly British couple set in a working hamlet. The property is tastefully furnished and fully equipped in the kitchen - also had a huge collection of books and DVDs to read and watch. We did several day trips as recommended in the visitors' book and all were really good. The highlight for us was the olive oil tasting which also included a delicious lunch and locally produced wines. A lot of time has been spent researching the best places to visit locally. It's also a great base for keen cyclists.

“A perfect taste of Tuscany”
Reviewed August 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I was lucky enough to stay here for my friends' wedding in June. Slightly off the beaten track but near enough to shops, it is an ideal Tuscan villa for a group of friends wanting to have fun, chill and take in the countryside.
The villa and it's grounds were big enough for us all to have our own space and yet we were also able to congregate around in the communal areas too. The pool is heated (if needed) and the lawns/grounds perfectly manicured by the owners.
The owners, Leigh and Diane, were THE best at recommending restaurants, helping my friends with their wedding, taxi service, keeping the grounds beautiful and being a very good concierge service.
As I sit in my office back in Blighty, I often think about going back to Casa Leana...and I hope it won't be too long before I'm back.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I don't have much more to add over the previous reviews. We were at Casa Leana for 2 weeks and we all thought it was perfect for our stay in Tuscany. Great, characterful house with sensational views of the countryside. Good base to explore main Tuscany highlights such as Florence and Siena as well as the pretty towns and villages nearer to home. Pool was brilliant for my 2 kids. Di and Leigh were great hosts.

“A superb find!!”
Reviewed June 25, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a magical week staying at Casa Leana with 8 of our friends and our baby son, where we got married in the beautiful local town of Anghiari.
The villa is fantastic, full of charm, history and pleasant surprises! From the games room to the wine cellar to the extensive (and beautifully kept) gardens and pool, it really does have everything you need for a super relaxing and fun holiday.
The house has spectacular views, and the peace and quiet, along with the birdsong really is a world away from the hussle and bussle of the UK! The (heated) pool is a wonderful place to be on a sunny day or evening.
Di and Leigh are superb hosts, and they work extremely hard to make sure you have the best possible experience. In addition to recommending and booking authentic local restaurants, and providing a great taxi service for those evenings you all want to drink Chianti Classico, Di and Leigh did a superb job of arranging our entire Tuscan wedding!
From sorting out all the legal matters with the local authorities, booking the commune (local town hall where we were married) to arranging pre and post drinks at a local cafe/bar, a wedding cake, a 5 course meal in a great restaurant, photo shoot, chauffeuring the whole party around all day (in decorated car of course), they put many hours into every detail. They completely earnt our trust months before the big day, and everything was PERFECT thanks to them!
A final word on the town of Anghiari, it is one of Tuscany's hidden gems. A stunning walled town on a hill with amazing views, cobbled streets and a very friendly atmosphere. It is a great setting for any celebration, and a great base from which to explore Tuscany and beyond.
Thank you Diana and Leigh for such a memorable holiday!

“A Dream Villa”
Reviewed May 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Within minutes of receiving our tour of this beautiful home, we were jokingly trying to figure out how we could live there forever. The owners have not forgotten anything in preparing their house for guests. There are bike helmets, wet suits for adults and children if the pool is too cool, children's toys (indoor and outdoor), a welcome basket in the kitchen to get you started,...I could go on and on.

The house is very large and very comfortable for large groups and a gem for families with young children. The nearby village of Anghiari is avery well preserved medieval village, yet not on most tourists' itinerary, so you feel as though you are discovering it alone.

There are a lot of day trips easily accessible from the house, but the house and grounds are so amazing that we wanted to spend some quality time there as well.

Overall, nothing but positive comments to say.

Thank you so so much for your lovely review. We knew you had a great time when we saw you at the house but it is so kind of you to put it down in words. We are absolutely delighted that you enjoyed your holiday at Casa Leana and we loved hearing the stories about what you had cooked (and how!) and where you and the children had been exploring. We are planning a trip to the Chocolate Factory in Perugia ourselves over the next few weeks under your recommendation! Thanks again and we really hope to see you and your lovely family in the future. Di and Leigh

“A great villa for a family, spacious and beautiful!”
Reviewed September 17, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from our family trip to Tuscany, and spent 8 nights at Casa Leana.
Everything in the villa is just amazing, it is well maintained and beautifully furnished, equipped with all the necessary accessories.
The owners are so nice and helpful, Diana answered so many questions we sent before the vacation, and she did it patiently and promptly.
The pool was a great fun for the kids! Although some of the days during September were a bit chilly and the water was not hot enough for us, but in the other days were weather was warmer the pool was perfect! It is kept very clean and tidy.
The garden contains tomatoes and strawberry that the owners are growing themselves and the kids enjoyed very much picking them directly from the bush and eating fresh strawberries that were so tasty!
We had a great time for all the family at Casa Leana and would definitely recommend it!
Thank you for everything, Di & Leigh!
