“A DREAM IS OVER! But we will start dreaming again – next summer holiday!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The dream starts when you arrive at Villa Mondello, standing in front of that huge ion-gate between the stone columns. When you pass that huge gate, opening automatically, you are entering a different world. You drive along the way to the Villa through the old English garden with nicely trimmed box tree hedges, an old well, high trees and the sound of the broken stones on that way seem to say “welcome back, Earl of Mondello”. But that is only the beginning! Opening the old, high and heavy wooden entrance door to the Villa and entering the entrance hall you feel again that “welcome, Earl – haven’t seen you for a long time”. The Villa is renovated with great love to detail and history! In all rooms the old frescos are brought to daylight after years of coverage with white color, the old floors are shining brightly again on the ground floor and beautiful warm new wooden floors welcome you to walk on in the second floor. All rooms are illuminated with old chandelier. Historical furniture is rounding up the historical exclusivity. But don’t worry, Earl from the 21nd century! The kitchen is large and new, high quality and very well equipped. Also the bathrooms are new and best state of technic but in beautiful historical style. The beds are new and best quality, never seen in a rental house before! With these first impressions from inside “your” villa you enter the large sun terrace surrounded by stone antas to show yourself to your “Shire”.
In the large park (not only garden!) in front of you with those old cypresses there is the new, 16m swimming pool. It seems to melt together with the valley and the hills within your view. If your eyes are walking across the horizon you are looking towards the spring of the river Arno, the famous Etruscan living- and sacred area. You have an old anchorite monetary from 1600 and the holy forests with large monasteries, famous for Tuscany mushrooms, in front of you. The pool has a wooden pool house, equipped with kitchen, bathroom and indoor shower beside the outdoor showers at the pool.
Really everything is equipped in highest quality. The tables in the Villa are handmade with inlaid work; the sun loungers are individually designed and made out of wood instead of plastic… perfect! The villa was built as a summer residence from English Earls in 1905 and has been renovated for years. It was opened for guests in May 2012. Everything is well maintained and cleaned (Pool and Park daily and the Villa weekly).

Poor Earls from former times – they did not have that combination of historical exclusivity together with the nice easements of modern technique! And they cannot come back to Villa Mondello – but we will! – certainly!

We had the pleasure to stay for one week at Villa Mondello. And this week was a wonderful beginning in our summer holiday. We've had a very warm and friendly Welcome by Francesca, the owner's daughter, who also took care of us the whole week long. And if it was possible, we would have stayed for a longer time. What a pity to leave after the short 7 days. This holiday location is a quiet tip. The villa - lovingly restored by the owners during many years - is a wonderful piece of architecture. While living in these great house you can feel and see history in every single corner. But also the park with its old trees that surrounds the villa and even more the huge swimming pool area with its own bathing cottage are spectacular and the landscape is typically Toscany - just gorgeous.

Great place to stay, the room are really beautiful and well taken care of. The property is peaceful, with the shady garden to relax in (beautiful spring colours) and the larger garden and pool area to have fun even with kids. The surrounding area is ripe with history, with a million things to visit...wish we could have stayed there longer. Everywhere around the food is great...even if you just stop in a small "bottega" (the local grocery) you can get lovely foodstuff.
If you like driving on mountain roads, it's perfect...the mountain pass to Florence is just amazing to drive over...wish I'd brought my motorbike with!
