“Looking for a place to stay in Toscana? This is it!”

First off, I am not really the type of person to write online reviews, but my incredible experience at this villa made it necessary to share my experience. Before my most recent trip to Italy I spent many hours looking for the right villa to rent on our vacation. I found Villa Talciona during my research and added it to the list of candidates. I was a little hesitant on reserving this villa because I usually book properties with many reviews and this one only had two at the time. I decided to go for it because it met our accommodation needs, was situated in the middle of Toscana, and had a great rate. I am extremely happy I decided to go with Villa Talciona because this gem might be the best villa in all of Toscana.

I have so many great things to say about this property that I am not sure where to start. When we arrived we were greeted by Francesco, Elena, and their family. We immediately felt right at home with them. They were such wonderful hosts during our entire stay. They were always there to offer advise and recommendations for our day trips and to just chat about our day. Punto, their dog, was always there to greet us after our day trips!

The property is absolutely beautiful. The views from the property offer you that classical rolling hill toscan countryside that you dream about. The area near the pool gives a great place to relax and unwind after a long day of sight seeing. You can swim in the beautiful heated pool while listening to music or relax on the hammock and loose yourself to the incredible view. The pool area also has an outdoor oven and an eating area so if you wanted to cook on your own you have the perfect place to do so. There are also many activities around the property to keep you busy. Soccer net, volleyball net, ping pong table - enough activities to keep you entertained for days. There is also a hot tub right outside the villa entrance to soak in after a long day. You can tell there was a lot of money and hard work put into this property to make your experience a memorable one.

The villa itself is extremely spacious. There are two bedrooms; one with a queen sized bed and another that can either be made up with another queen or two singles. A bunk-bed in the half also offers more sleep room. The kitchen, living room and dining area are spacious and provide you were pretty much everything you need for a wonderful stay. Francesco also has a nice wine selection that you are welcome to purchase from if you don't feel like going out (prices are extremely reasonable). Don't want to cook or go out for food? No problem! The owners generously offer a dinner menu from which they will cook for you (price varies on dinner). You just have to give them a days notice in advance. I wish our schedule wasn't so busy or we would have certainly done this. The washing machine was a huge benefit as it allowed us to pack less for the two week trip by washing our clothes at the villa.

Villa Talciona is conveniently located dead smack in the middle most tourist activities in Toscana. Siena, Firenze, Montalcino, Sam Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, Montepulciano, etc are more or less an hour or so away. It makes it very convenient and easy to plan day trips to these different cities.

Overall, myself and my family had an incredible time at Villa Talciona. The hospitality is second to none, the villa and property are wonderful, and the price is hard to beat. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone looking to stay in Toscana. We are looking forward to our next trip to Toscana and spending it here!

*This is an amazing place to stay at for a city runaway. You can relax as far as relaxation gets in this villa. I have all the positives starting the helpful amazing owners who made us feel at home to the great outdoor pizza oven we used :) Jacuzzi was amazing and spacious (didn't use pool because it was not open yet and cold weather). I don't have enough words to explain the beautiful view of garden and terrace, the most amazing fact that no obstacles were into the view of hills and green landscape.
*Close to most towns you need to visit.
*You must have a car.
*Amazing Owners
*Amazing preparation of the house with all cooking utensils and towels
*Clean house
*A good thing the 2-level beds and single bed is not in living room itself, but in a corridor where other bedroom doors are in, so if others wake up early or stay late at living room still the 3 beds will enjoy a quiet sleep. I advice owner to write this in description

*Also you can optionally pay for heating (50/week). We didn't know heating wasn't included. But when we arrived the house was freezing cold. So we instantly requested the heating. But then discovered no heating panels exist in one of bedrooms and no heating panel in the area where the 2-level bed and single bed are in. Heating was only in living room and one of bedrooms. I paid for heating yet 4 people were freezing the first night due to lack of heating panels in the bedroom and 2-level beds
*They gladly gave use an extra electric heater on the next day and proper covers (only bed sheet covers were originally there when we arrived)
*So another advice to owner to put proper bed covers on all beds since heating isn't included in the price. And open the heater for 1 day before the arrival of guests so apartment is a bit warm when they arrive. Ofcourse this is valid only in cold months

*Negative: you have to pay for cleaning fees of 15 euro per person which were not communicated earlier. We were a group of 6 and stayed 3 nights and paid 90 euros. We enjoyed the stay so much that we accepted the surprising fees lightly; because also villa price was not so high. BUT other people won't be happy to be surprised with extra fees.
So an advice to owner, they must write cleaning fees clearly in the description. Other people will not take it lightly like we did.

**I would RECOMMEND this villa and the very hospital owners.. really we couldn't have enjoyed more even with above small negative

BUONGIORNO
VOLEVAMO RINGRAZIARLA INNANZITUTTO PER I COMPLIMENTI ESTREMAMENTE POSITIVI CHE CI HA FATTO E PER LA SUA OTTIMA RECENSIONE.
CI FA PIACERE SAPERE CHE SI E' TROVATA A SUO AGIO COME SE FOSSE STATA A CASA SUA E CI DISPIACE MOLTO INVECE PER I DUE DISAGI CHE HA AVUTO, E PER QUESTO LE CHIEDIAMO SCUSA.
VOLEVAMO SEMPLICEMENTE FARLE PRESENTE CHE PER QUANTO RIGUARDA IL RISCALDAMENTO ERA LA PRIMA VOLTA CHE AFFITTAVAMO IN UN PERIODO NON CALDO E PENSAVAMO CHE I 18° INIZIALI DI TEMPERATURA DELL'APPARTAMENTO POTESSERO ESSERE SUFFICIENTI IN QUEL PERIODO PRIMAVERILE.
PER QUELLO CHE CONCERNE INVECE LE SPESE DI PULIZIA FINALI, LE AVEVAMO INVIATO UNA E-MAIL IL 23 DI FEBBRAIO DOVE ERANO ESPRESSAMENTE INDICATE, VISTO CHE IN QUEL PERIODO NON ERA POSSIBILE SEGNALARLE SUL SITO INTERNET DI TRIPADVISOR PER PROBLEMI TECNICI.
RINGRAZIANDOLA ANCORA E SPERANDO DI AVERLA NUOVAMENTE COME NOSTRA GRADITA OSPITE, LE PORGIAMO CORDIALI SALUTI.
