Absolutely wonderful house and location!
This is an exceptionally nice house, beautifully furnished and with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is really well equipped and the welcome basket was an especially nice touch!
And what a lovely outside area with a fantastic pool, many comfortable seats, a beautiful view, and surrounded by olive groves (although the mosquitos are a little troublesome, so it's a good idea to take a spray).
Thank you Marco for a wonderful holiday in your beautiful home!
Perfect, magical villa with a great pool.
We spent a week here and didn't want to leave! The villa is beautifully appointed with every care taken to detail. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated with amazing views across the hills and to the village of Pelago. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms are lovely. The village of Pelago is a 4-5 minute walk up a path at the rear of the house where there is a small supermarket, a couple of bars/ cafes and a cashpoint. It has a pretty square leading up to the church. The villa's garden is wonderful with a choice of places to sit. The large, comfy outdoor sofa under the gazebo was my personal favourite. This was especially nice in the evening with the garden/pool lights on looking over to the lights of the village. One evening a deer walked past only about 10' away from me. All communication with Marco was excellent and we were greeted and shown around by Lucia, the housekeeper, on arrival. We only ventured out twice - a short drive to Fiesole with amazing views over Florence and some interesting Roman ruins, and a trip to Florence itself. We took the train from S. Ellero for convenience and it was a lovely 30 minute trip into Florence. Once at the station it's only a 10 min walk into the main historical centre. All together a fabulous place to stay - thank you Marco and Adele.
Paradise in Tuscany
We are always sceptical when renting a home as I think most people are, is it as described, are the pictures deceiving, well I can say with confidence that this home was above and beyond our expectations! We booked months in advance and the communication from the owner Marco was absolutely fantastic, upon arrival we were met by the Housekeeper and her family who took the time to show us absolutely everything we needed to know about the villa. The property is absolutely beautiful and no detail was missed we had everything needed to enjoy a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. Just everything about this villa, the location, the amenities, is just perfect, we will be back and I would not hesitate to recommend Marco's home to friends and family. Experience this Tuscan Gem for yourself!
What can I say, other than excellent!! Hospitality couldn’t be better, everything was as a hotel, big pool equipped with sun beds and towels, nice out door places, you can spend your time together inside and outside or find several places outside for some time by yourself! Barbeque. Fully equipped kitchen with coffee machine!!
Thanks a lot for making our vacation a wonderful time!
