  • Spectacular Tuscan Villa

    "Having been to Italy for several tours, five couples (cousins) rented Villa Giardo for two weeks this past October. We wanted a different kind of vacation, slower paced, with time to savor the area. The villa had been recommended to us by friends who had been there the previous year so we knew we were in for a treat. It exceeded our expectations. The view from the stone terrace was magnificent & much time was spent sitting there with a glass of chianti wine. We had rented a car in Rome and drove to Figline & found the road to Greve & thereafter used Silvia's very helpful directions (with photos)to find the villa. (A GPS becomes useless after you get on the roads nearer the villa). The dirt road the last few miles to the villa is bumpy and the driveway at the house is a bit steep but a fun challenge! The villa interior is spacious & spectacular...a combination of rustic and elegant with crystal chandeliers and a stone fireplace. 4 of the 5 bedrooms have queen or king beds with bathrooms. One upstairs room has 2 twin beds and a half bath nearby). The owners, Silvia & Stefano, live at the end of the villa in their own apartment so they are close by if you have a question for them; yet you never see them at your end of the villa. It was the perfect combination of privacy & assistance in case you had a question about a restaurant or directions. They are wonderful people who love sharing this beautiful property with others..we cannot say enough about them and their darling son! Our routine was to take leisurely day trips by car, to Greve, to Radda, to San Gimignano, wander around the town or market day kiosks, find a restaurant & have a fabulous mid day meal (seafood pasta & cinghali (boar stew) are not to be missed! Then back at the villa by night, we would play cards, sit on the terrace, & make our own light dinner. We went by train to Florence for a day (parking in Figline) and took a high speed train to Venice for an overnight trip during our 2 weeks there. We all said this was the best trip any of us have ever taken to Italy. The weather was lovely during our stay. We were lucky enough to see and hear wild boar several times. We felt like real Tuscans by the time we left, having made friends with several local merchants in Greve (the wine store) & several restaurant owners who were so friendly when we returned again. It was truly the trip of a lifetime for those who want to experience the heart and soul of Italy which is found in Tuscany."

Take in the history and culture of nearby Lucca.

Fly into Pisa’s Galileo Galilei airport or into Florence’s airport, known as Peretola. You will need a rental car in Tuscany, but consider taking the train from town to town for day trips.
