The remote vale that stretches between the peak of Volterra and the etruscan coast. Situated among the villages , vineyards and golden hills of Tuscany . This is no Disney-fied version of Tuscany. This is one of the glimpses of our land . In spring, the fields are intense green with yellow spots of flowers. In summer, they are gold and black due to different kinds of wheat. This is an enchanting place, it seems from another planet. A hidden gem situated among the villages , vineyards and golden hills of Tuscany. All these things give rise to a magical place full of charm. This is partly due to the strict conservation rules but also a debt is owed to Tuscany Forever collaboration with artists, designers and craft mans. The landscape, history and local character were essential to our version for Tuscany Forever , as such, the aesthetic is crisp, clean and comfortable. An expression of human creativity and taste for beauty. Involved with great sensitivity to create the art and great esteem to restoration. Wooden beams, flagstones, marble were all sourced in Italy. Hand crafted cotto floor. Local ceramics line the shelves. From modernist porcelain collection to contemporary pieces. Unique furniture pieces from antique markets along the whole Italy. Natural textiles, pure linen , stone from Sicily and...a lot of passion . BEACHES  In 35 minutes you will reach the nearest beaches ... Etruscan coast, the sea is about 35 min. away and you can reach the beaches of Cecina, Marina di Bibbona, Donoratico, Castiglioncello and San Vincenzo. A line of the sea stretches from Livorno to Piombino - Castiglioncello, Quercianella, Rosignano, Vada, Cecina, Bibbona, Marina di Castagneto and San Vincenzo. Beaches of pale sand, like those at San Vincenzo and Baratti, alternate with the darker sands of Marina di Castagneto, Bibbona and Cecina, and wind-sculpted rocky shores where the water is deep and teeming with fish. Well-equipped marinas provide plenty of opportunities for yachting. Costa deli Etruschi with Populonia, Suvereto, Campiglia Marittima… SIGHTSEEING  This lovely apartment is perfectly located for exploring Tuscany. It is just a 10 minute drive to the wonderful medieval hilltop city of Volterra, a historic Etruscan city which can be viewed from the apartment. The immediate countryside around the apartment is absolutely stunning at all times of the year. Short drives will take you to the renowned cities of San Gimignano and Siena. Of course one cannot miss out on the Leaning Tower at Pisa - just an hour away. The nearest beaches of Cecina and Bibbona are about 30 minute drive, but there are further beautiful beaches and seaside villages within comfortable day trips.  Volterra – 10 km,

Het resort behoeft wel enige toelichting om aan de verwachtingen te voldoen, ik probeer dit zo goed mogelijk te schetsen. Vooropgesteld zijn de huizen smaakvol en hip ingericht. Met name de huizen zijn een aanrader. er zijn ook een soort appartementen die OK zijn maar geen airco hebben en een klein terras met trappetjes dat voor de hele kleintjes niet fijn is. Het resort is in 1 zucht gebouwd en neergezet dit zie je aan de locatie en af en toe aan het onderhoud. Het gevoel dat in eerste instantie naar boven kwam was: er is hier een vakantieresort neergezet, zo van hop...berg gekocht en huizen geplaatst. kunstmatig is misschien wel de beste benadering. Het staat op afstand van plaats, strand en stad., je hebt altijd een auto nodig en loopt niet zomaar even een dorpje in. de directe omgeving oogt industrieel en de laatste 2 kilometers gaan via een onverharde weg wat nog weleens een lekke band oplevert. Het management en de kok is niet Italiaans wat qua eten echt anders is (vind ik) dan dineren in een lokaal restaurant waarvoor je dan weer een auto nodig hebt. De zwembaden zijn modern en goed verzorgd met cabana's en lekkere bedjes. Het zijn er wel drie waarvan 1 niet actief was vorig jaar zomer. Ik vind dit een ideale plek voor gezinnen met kleine kinderen maar zodra de jeugd wat meer wil en alleen op pad wil dan is dit te beperkt en zit je vast aan het resort.

We were looking forward to our return visit to Tuscany Forever (TF). However we were so disappointed with the following: (1) the lack of air conditioning and insect screens. For a luxury resort this is something they should have invested in by now, especially when temperatures can be +40 degrees celsius as recently; (2) the lack of cleaning in the villa in spite of the 150 euros charge- the ceiling was covered in mosquitos on our arrival; (3) the charge of 5 euros for each pool towel which is unacceptable given how much customers have paid to stay there; (4) the 300 euros CASH deposit feels unnecessary and inconvenient, especially if guests are going straight home after their visit. It felt rather demeaning waiting on the morning of checkout for the apartment to be inspected before the deposit was handed back; (5) TF have cut back on so many little extras which they used to have, such as the welcome meeting for new guests and the central BBQ which used to be stocked with wood each evening and where guests barbecued and socialized. Even the Italian cooking class was a poor replica of what it used to be - last time we visited they had the authentic Italian cook who oversaw the children making loads of pasta during a two hour class; this time the children only got to roll out the dough for the pizza and the ‘class ‘ was over in 40 minutes! As with so many aspects of TF it felt like they were going through the motions and the whole place was rather soulless. Unless you have young children or toddlers and want to be in bed before sunset I would think twice before visiting.

Tuscany Forever is foremost a very solid online marketing & social media machine. Instagram, Facebook, even a split-per-apartment distinction on Tripadvisor (mind you, it’s still one resort). Quite a few reviews have been written by friends of the owners which is nice but also gives a diluted impression. I’m hereby taking the chance to objectify to this pristine image they’re trying to establish. THE APARTMENT: We just returned from a stay in Lavanda F, a 3bed/2bathroom aparment. The apartment was clean, has 3 decent beds with clean linen, plenty of towels and a well-fitted kitchen. Towels for the pool however need to be rented at €25/week which I think is quite high. Also, you will find 3 wine glasses, 5 large water glasses etc etc in an apartment for 6. Not quite handy but we were 2 adults and 2 kids so no problem for us. The linen is changed weekly, guests can basically pick a day which is good. The bathrooms were good and though the shower is small in size, it’s a good powerful stream. Biggest problems were the lack of air conditioning and the abundancy of biting/stinging insects. We were here in September but it was still warm (and humid) and opening the windows meant being bait for insects that, a week later, still left marks on our bodies. Yes, we had insect repellent but it didn’t matter. The resort provides baby cots (free of charge) but they’re quite old and ‘worn’. Better than nothing though. The mandatory cleaning at the end costs €150 which a. is outrageous and b. would imply the ceiling shouldn’t be covered in hundreds of insects that died on the spot. The WiFi might be free of charge but is unacceptable in terms of usage. It was so slow we weren’t even able to read news in the evening. THE GROUNDS: The tenniscourt is pristine and all 3 pools were clean. We saw the pool cleaners several times in the week we were there. The pools however, have been self-constructed(?) which is noticeable by the uneven rinkles in the foil used to construct the pool. The daybeds are ideal but why on earth they bought white plastic deckchairs and didn’t bother buying matrasses is a mystery. It’s basically ‘bring-your-own-towel-and-matress’. The gardens are well-kept and the views are stunning. Advertised as child-friendly it’s surprising how many stairs vs paths have been created. To go from the main pool to the restaurant directly behind it’s 20m if you take the stairs but with a stroller you need to go round which means ±200m(!). THE RESTAURANT: The restaurant is like Dr.Jekyll & Mr.Hyde; 2 nights the restaurant was closed without giving prior notice. We did eat here twice and daily got coffee and croissants for breakfast, both of which were good. We enjoyed the pizzas and the vitello tonato was delicious. The carpaccio however came directly from the freezer and was still frozen when it arrived on my plate. I didn’t mind switching to vitello after sending it back but the chef shouldn’t send this out to be served. The restaurant is nicely setup, good tables and chairs and we liked the young girl working there. Perhaps the nicest person there but I’ll come to that later. THE PEOPLE: I can be brief; I have never in my life met such uninterested hotel/resort owners. The owners aren’t unfriendly, they just don’t pay any attention. We have walked past the owner (m) at least 20-30 times and never, not even once, did he look up from his phone to greet us, not even a ‘hi’. The owner (f) I met twice but when my wife at check-out introduced herself to the owner as she hadn’t encountered her in a full week, she was met with a surprised “we’ve met before” which was a blatant lie. The beforementioned dead insects on the ceiling were “just lazy and very quiet” according to her. I’m sure insects can be lazy but they don’t stay in exactly the same spot for a full week. Again a lie. I understand that people try to maintain a certain image but I’d rather have someone tell me “you’re right, we’ll instruct the cleaners’’ then a lie about the dormant habits of insects or implying my wife wouldn’t remember the face of a resort owner. THE AREA: Tuscany is great and we’ve been here for years and years. This year we wanted to see a different part of Tuscany and we did. Tuscany Forever provides well-written and researched booklets and we visited many of the places mentioned. The downside is the fact that much of it is quite a drive. Volterra is nice and only a 10min drive up the hill but everything else was much farther away. A few examples (and I don’t drive slowly(!)); Siena 1h15m, Florence 1h35m, Barberino Val d’Elsa (1h), Cecina (which is a poor excuse for a seaside resort) 40min. Volterra and Colle in Val d’Elsa both are acceptable and nice to visit. By no means is the resort within half an hour drive from a beautiful beach as advertised. I’ll put money on that and race the person who claims differently. CONCLUDING: Being here mid-September the apartment was too hot to go without airco and opening the windows resulted in far too many insect-bites. It’s too far away from most larger places in Tuscany and some of the smaller places you might want to visit. If it’s just a nice pool and sunshine without leaving the premises you wouldn’t go to Tuscany. But the thing that has bothered us the most is the fact that the owners put so much effort in keeping up their social media appearances and absolutely no effort in caring for their guests. The fact that multiple requests (as we’ve heard from other guests as well) are being disregarded or met with excuses and lies has made me decide to write a review which I normally never do, at least not publicly. Not only wouldn’t I recommend staying here, I would also advise anyone to look beyond social media and be a bit more sceptical about who writes reviews and how they’re written. We sure learned our lesson.

I have been meaning to write a review since visiting. We just celebrated our second wedding anniversary and were reminiscing about our stay. We were there a week before memorial day and almost had the place to ourselves. They were is the midst of adding more buildings and we got to wander in to all of the existing apartments and the ones in process of being constructed. I loved all of the ones we saw and they were all unique. The design features were tremendous. Modern mixed with old (reclaimed elements). We were treated like visiting family. We had so much help with arranging visits to local wineries, recommending restaurants for us including directions,etc. When we first drove into saline de volterra...we got lost and Tom drove to us and had us follow him back. Everyone was very approachable and helpful. It is such a beautiful place.....you will never experience a backdrop like that on any tennis court in the US! We had a blast and are hoping to visit for our 5th anniversary! Thank you for the wonderful experience........

We had a lovely week here in late June. The apartment is part of a small collection of apartments and villas. Lavender F, where we stayed, is on the ground floor of the old farmhouse. The photos do justice to the standard of the apartment. It is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. Lavender F has a small but very convenient outdoor seating area. It's SW facing so you can sit outside in the evening and enjoy the sunset. There are two pools, a trampoline and a climbing frame/slide on the site which was very useful for entertaining our three year old. The location is stunning. It is situation on the top of a small hill with views over the surrounding feels and up to Volterra. It's about a 20 minute drive to Volterra but there is small village with a convenience store within 5 minutes. You can also make it to the coast, Bulgheri and San Gimignano in around 45 minutes.

This lovely villa is ideally located for exploring Tuscany.
