"Our family of 6 arrived frazzled from weeks of touring.Sergio and his villa i leonie was the perfect paring to restore our spirits. The quiet, idyllic location provided us with relaxed family time, which was a major aim of our European travels. The very comfortable villa & grounds , was both large and clean, which enabled our four kids to enjoy the big pool, play family card games in the open space lounge room and chill out in their privacy of their own bedrooms, very important for teenagers ( and parents! ) The villa is nestled amidst vines and olive groves and overlooks hills, studded with beautiful Tuscan housing. Our family enjoyed many a meal on the terrace that overlooks the beautiful Tuscan landscape, we all agreed that the location gave us our authentic Tuscan experience.
Sergio is a non-intrusive host who cheerfully met all our needs. We had car trouble and Sergio cheerfully & efficiently organised a mechanic to attend us at the villa, which saved us hundreds of Euros. Thanks again Sergio.
Sergio is a thoughtful man so I enjoyed his observations about Tuscan society, local government and the Italian economy.
The villa is ideally situated for day trips to all major Tuscan attractions. After visiting teeming Florence, our return to the haven of Sergio's villa immediately settled our travel nerves. As the kids loved the pool and the short walks to the local shops we actually decided not to venture out on two days which rested the kids ( and us ) so that our trip days were all the more enjoyable.
Reflecting upon our time at villa i leonie our family agreed that the combination of location, spaciousness of the villa and the personality of Sergio added up to a dream come true. We recommend Sergio and his villa as the perfect place to relax and enjoy an authentic Tuscan experience. As regards our other family rentals we decided not to file any other reviews as they simply did not meet our expectations so Sergio was the exception, hence our review.
We are planning another return trip to villa i leonie which confirms our delight with the villa. So to all who read this review, rest assured that your time with Sergio and his villa shall fullfil your expectations."

"My family and I ventured to Italy for a trek across the country. We ended our trip by staying at Sergio's wonderful villa for the last week. It was like stepping into a storybook - the landscape and villa were breath taking. The location, amenities, and hospitality were extraordinary! We enjoyed day trips to Florence, Siena, San Gimgnano, and Cinque Terre and closed out our evenings by the pool at the villa. I am sure your family and friends will enjoy your stay at Villa I Leoni."

"A truly beautiful apartment. Look up, look down; everywhere you turn there's history. The frescoes on the ceiling or the beautiful wood floors. The apartment is very spacious by Italian standards and is nicely furnished. Can you believe two full bathrooms, plus a half-bath?
I'd give it five stars, but there are a few things that aren't so great. First, there is no AC in the apartment. That should be fine except for the months of June, July, and August. They do provide fans which helps, but only just a big. The other is that the mattress in the master bedroom has seen better days. I'm not sure why, but it almost seems as though it's on an incline. Also, the one television in the apartment is in the master bedroom. was a little odd. Finally, other than a french press, there's no coffee pot in the apartment. Hello! This is Italy!! :)
However, despite those small issues, the place is beautiful and Niccolo, the caretaker, was very helpful during our stay."
