  • Perfection!!

    "Staying at this Villa for 7 days was the ending of our travels through Europe for the month. What a beautiful and relaxing way to wrap up our holiday. I chose this Villa based on the consistency of the 5 star reviews. I have never seen that level of consistent high ratings before so I was prepared for less than 5 star experience, however, I was so wrong. I was pleasantly surprised to find that all reviews were spot on!! The villa was immaculate upon arrival and exactly as advertised on the website. The property is very pretty and quiet, just as shown in the photos on this site. We took many walks to the small town of Citta della Pieve where we enjoyed friendly warm and welcoming individuals, excellent meals, and of course Gelato. This town is a charming quintessential small Italian town. In the evenings it comes alive with people who obviously know each other and fill the streets with laughter. You are enveloped in the feeling of a small art community with deep roots and historic tales to tell. Jacopo has his own line of wine and olive oil from his property which we imbibed and enjoyed nightly…. He leaves wine and olive oil in the Villa and operates on the "honor system". We commented nightly how amazed we were comparing his 8 Euro bottle of wine to our $30 wine bottle purchases in the states. Such a treat! Another review commented on lack of music options and I second that comment. Maybe Jacopo would consider adding a music option to the Villa. There is a lovely simplicity to the grounds. Every morning the pool and grounds are cleaned so you arise to a fresh sparkling environment each day. And while Jacopo is on site every day to attend to these enhancements, he is ultra-respectful of your privacy - most of the time he comes and goes without you being aware of his presence. The Villa is tranquil and quiet at night and in the early morning. We slept with windows open every night and rested to the subtle sounds of crickets and light breezes through the valley. The main views from the house offer only olive groves and Umbrian hillsides. There is a resident fox who visited us each evening as we enjoyed the outside dining area. We were shocked at the fox’s comfort in our company. Spending a week in an Italian Villa has been on my bucket list for years. This Villa met every detail of my imagined experience when I created my bucket list."

  • La Terraza In September

    "In September, my wife and I stayed for almost two weeks at La Tarazza, Cetona. Although our flight was late arriving into Roma Fiumicino Airport, the Property Manager, was still waiting for us when we arrived and took care of getting our luggage up to the house. When we took our coffee up to the garden next morning to take in the views, we knew we had made a good choice of place to stay. Cetona was clean, quiet and had all the local amenities, including two great restaurants (Nilo’s and Osteria Merio). Our home-away-from-home was very clean and had all the amenities (with exception of microwave, which taught you to do things the “old way” again). While English was not spoken by too many, everyone was willing to converse with you and try to help, which is half the fun for us. The Saturday morning market was a great place to pick up your fruits and vegetables, but don’t touch the fruit, they will select for you, depending on whether you want to eat it that day or in a few days! There are several day hikes from the town and maps are available from the town Tourist Office. If you want to rent bikes, there is a shop in Chuisi (15mins drive) called “Bruscino Noleggio Biciclette Chuisi”. Mountain bikes cost 12Eu/day, but not much selection. A couple of great rides right out of town. “Sentiero Della Bonifica” runs through beautiful countryside up to Arezzo (~40miles one way). Location is perfectly situated between Rome and Florence, with the A1 Autostrada running north/south only 10mins away. This is a toll road, so don’t lose your ticket or you’ll be paying the full 50Eu! There are so many beautiful towns and villages to explore in and around Tuscany and wine country. This time of year, the sunflowers start to die and are being harvested with many fields ploughed over. The contrast of soil colours in just 100 yards, was amazing to see and makes for great photographic opportunities. June/July are the months to see them in full bloom across the rolling hills. Montepulciano, Montalcino, Montefalco wine areas are 40-50 mins. Away. Avignonesi, near Cortona, is one of the better vineyards and does a great tour. You need to book ahead. Overall, we had a wonderful time, and the Property Manager was like a tour guide to us, helping is make arrangements for renting bikes over the phone, since our Italian was limited."
