  • Wonderful Family Tuscan Holiday

    "This summer our family—two parents and four kids, aged between 14 and 21, plus my father—embarked on what we hoped would prove to be perfect Tuscan holiday. L’Olmo did not disappoint. The first evening, after a winding trip up the hillside, we were rewarded with a tree-lined colonnade entry onto the property that took our breath away. As you approach the property you get a sense of the quiet majesty and age of the place. We were warmly greeted by owners Martyn and Margaret. They were ever present but never intrusive for the remainder of our stay, extremely helpful with advice about day trips and at the ready to make reservations or help with anything else that might have come up. The farmhouse itself is spectacular. Dating back centuries, it has been tastefully outfitted with many modern conveniences. The rooms are large and bright and the beds all have comfy, crisp linens. We love to cook and had such a good time perusing the local markets, snipping the property’s abundant herbs, and cooking in the spacious modern kitchen. The kids enjoyed the wi-fi “booster” set up in the kitchen so it ended up being a busy place. Of course, we spent a lot of time outdoors exploring the property, dining al fresco, reading by the pool, swimming in the pool, playing ping pong, and just soaking in the unbelievable lavender-scented sweeping vista of the Tuscan hills. We went on to visit other places in Italy on this trip but our stay in L’Olmo was definitely the highlight of the trip and we hope to return some day."

  • We will return to Casa Rossa!

    "My husand and I stayed with my mother at Casa Rossa for 6 nights in November 2014. The accommodations were perfect for us and both Francesco and his mother were gracious and helpful hosts. The house is exactly as pictured - charming, clean, and comfortable. The views of the Chianti hills from the terrace are splendid indeed! The location is perfect for exploring this region of Tuscany. We made easy drives to Florence, Siena and Pisa, and Francesco recommended off-the-beaten path destinations in Chianti that we thoroughly enjoyed. The local hill town of San Casciano is charming and has excellent restaurants. Our favorite was La Cantinetta del Nonno, recommended by our host. We enjoyed it so much we returned for another meal the next day. One nearby site that we found fascinating is the Amercian World War II cemetery near Florence (only 20 minutes or so from the house). We have already recommended Casa Rossa and Italy Perfect to friends. We were very please with the information we received in advance from Italy Perfect and every detail was attended to. Overall we would give this property an outstanding rating."
