“Amazing Tuscan retreat that can cater for a whole family”
Reviewed August 7, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

What can we say, our family of 22 persons rented the entire place (3 houses) and we were not disappointed in the slightest.

From the wonderful views, swimming pool with kids area, sunbathing areas, sauna, outdoor pizza/bread oven, kids playing garden and outdoor chess board, we were kept amused.

Gianluca and his family are very welcoming and provided everything and more for our 13 adults and 9 children. The houses are safe for the children and very clean and spacious, allowing each family privacy, yet in stunning privacy.

This place is perfect for a romantic retreat for 2 or the whole family. We had chefs who came at 5pm each evening and cooked an array of amazing Tuscan dishes to cater for all, they even cooked us some birthday and wedding cake during our week stay.

A masseur visited over 2 days to provide a relaxing experience for our guests and Gianluca organised the shopping/groceries for when we arrived, as well as during our stay, essential for this hilltop retreat!

We stayed during our wedding week and the little house Fienile, separated from the two main houses by 150m beautiful wooded park walk, offered my wife and I privacy, despite staying with a large group, who stayed in both the large houses.

If you want a Tuscan retreat with breathtaking views, amazing food, great amenities and a safe and clean environment for all ages, this is the place.

We will definitely be back!!

“Supertuscan!”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very cosy house (Palazzino, left on the picture) with everything you need, regarding the kitchen, bathrooms, chairs, and so on. Very nice view and pool (shared with the other house). Clean house and a friendly owner. We were with a large group, nothing was impossible.
The road to the house is an experience on its own ;) Maybe a mark that you are on the right way could help in this....

“Fabulous setting, very friendly reception, spacious accomodation”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very well equipped (sauna, infinity pool with small pool for toddlers, plenty of things for the kids like swings, playhouse, open air chess board, private BBQ, dishwasher and washig machine)
We had a very warm welcome (included a homemade bottle of olive oil and red wine).Gianluca came regularly to see if all was allright.The house is well situated to visit Sienna-Florence-Arezzo.(Florence is accessible by train from nearby station for only 11€ return). The access road is surprising: after having left a tarmac road you continue on an old Etruscan earth track through the forest to get to the top of a hill with an amazing panorama that you can enjoy from anywhere in the house. very peacefull. We certainly would like to go back. Perhaps an extra signpost would be helpful after Dudova.
