“Just one word....Bellissimo!”
Reviewed October 14, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My fiance and I decided to take a relaxing 10 days break to his birthplace,Tuscany.
And we couldn't have chosen better,than Villa Bellavista.The villa lies in the heart of the tuscan hills with spectacular views overlooking the val di chio. (particuarly stunning by the pool at dusk with all of the little glittering lights of the nearest city) Timesless italian countryside,grapevines,olive groves,and lavender shrubs enfold around the villa,just beautiful!The villa itself is rather spacious,clean,very nicely decorated and well equipped.
Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the owner,Daniele.And what with some complimentary organic wine,olive oil and homegrown tomatoes & basil we honestly could not have felt more welcome.The location too is good.With a lovely town called Cortona nearby and the nearest city,Castiglion fiorentino is full of history and stylish shops plus a station,making florence and many other places within reach.I would recommend this place to anyone who would like a truly relaxing and lovely vacation and to anyone who would love to discover a little piece of traditional tuscan life.

“ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES ON EARTH”
Reviewed October 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Hi,
If u are looking for a place, where u can not only relax but also find some inner peace and love, this place is the perfect pitch for you. It was our first time to visit Villa Bellavista and Daniele Frappi in September 2014 and it was sure not our last one. The very warm welcoming, the homemade wine and olive oil and the very beautiful house. We ( me, my husband and my parents) feel very comfortable right at the very first moment. If you are a lover of Tuscany and a very nice touch of antiques, this is definitely your place. From the place you are able to visit many spots around Tuscany like wine regions, castles, monasteries or the famous historical cities like for example Florenz, Arrezzo or Siena. If you just want to have some quietness you will definitely find it there except for the visits of the wild boars at night which is such a great but rare adventure. But Lupa ,the very pretty German shepherd dog, was always there to protect guests and the houses and was always happy for some attention. Just the way driving up the hill to the house might be a bit of a challenge for the first time, but after some practice you are almost just as good as the locals....=) From the pool you can catch one of the most beautiful views , which makes any minute of the ride worth it. Any questions, insider tips or help we directly ask Daniele Frappi, who always tried to make our stay the very best. Standing in Daniele Frappis antique mixed living room make me realize how much i missed art, beauty and the touch of craziness in my studies. After this experience I changed my studies to history and art and I truly can say, that this holiday changed my life in a more precious way. This is a consistenly positive review, but from the very first moment I feel connected to the place and wish that we can return many more times. If there are any questions i can answer i ll be happy to help, also in german; tagalog and a bit of italian language...

“Very charming but with a surprise”
Reviewed September 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

For our holidays we are looking for remote and tranquil villas so we can be as far from the madding crowd as possible. Villa B v ticked all the boxes – perfect location on the top of the hill with superb views, nicely decorated and comfortable house with ripe grapes outside for picking up, very friendly owner with his wine and olive oil. The only surprise for us was the fact that there were two villas for rent on this farm – Villa Bellavista, 2 bedroom farm house and slightly down the hill was another villa, 5 bedrooms, sleeps 10. This important detail should to be mentioned in the description. Renting two houses could be ideal for a big family or a group of friends living close but being independent. It could be great for people who don’t mind staying with neighbors.
For folks like us who wanted complete solitude this fact was a little bit of a shock. Thank you Daniele for trying to sort this out! We have definitely recharged our batteries at your villa.

I do not agree with this review. The reasons are the followings:
1- My property is 90.000 sqm and Villa Principe and Villa Bellavista are far from each other about 70 meters.
2- Every Villa has private entrance, gate and pool so the privacy and indipendence is guaranteed.
3- I had a corrispondence with few mails with the guestes and they did not asked to me that they where looking for a remote location with complete solitude.
4- I provided them the GPS coordinates so they could check properly ( with google maps ) where they were going to spend their vacation. From GOOGLE MAPS is very clear the details of the Villas for rent.
5- I feel sorry for the guestes they expected something else( " Remote solitude"). So therefore the use of expressions " Surprise " and " little bit shock " are absolutely not correct.

6. It could be more correct to write that the three little girls of Villa Principe they were little bit loud sometimes playing around. They moderated the loudness anyway after my speech.



Thank you very much
