We added two beautiful wooded sundecks equipped with comfortable sofas and chairs where to immerse in total relaxation!

Fabulous villa in stunning grounds
We were a family group of 10 and hired the whole villa (both apartments) for one week. We loved the property, had plenty of space and really enjoyed the surroundings and pool. The owners were great, really friendly and helpful. We took advantage of the locally cooked meal at the property which was excellent - very enjoyable. The villa is within easy distance of various restaurants for eating out and we visited San Gimingnano, Siena, Lucca and Florence during our stay. Would definitely recommend this property and would love to return. Thanks!
We loved every minute of our stay at this gorgeous property. It was beautifully clean and comfortable, wonderful setting and within easy reach of the beautiful hill towns. We visited Florence, San Giminiano, Voltera, Siena and Cecina on the coast - just over an hour away and a lovely beach. The swimming pool was gorgeous- the best we have had in a rental villa and the hosts charming, despite the language barrier. They very kindly left us some delicious home made tomato sauce (delicious) as well as gorgeous homegrown tomatoes. All in all a wonderful week, lots of space for the kids and different spaces to sit for age ranges 10 to 71! The only thing we would recommend is that it is made very clear before people book that air conditioning/heating etc is not included in the price. Other than that we loved it!
Italian Villa surpassed our expectations!
We rented both apartments for ten days in May, 2017. We were in Italy for my son's wedding in San Gimignano. From the minute we drove through the gates, we were mesmerized with the immaculate grounds and stunning two apartment villa. Everything was comfortable and accessible. The owners were kind enough to surprise us with a few additions in the fridge: proscuitto, milk, water and also two lovely bottles of chianti on the dining room table. The exterior grounds are very well kept. There were at least four places to gather outside in comfy living room type settings. The pool was a gorgeous shade of blue and the inifinity-like edge had water running over the rocks providing a very pleasing waterfall sound. The inside of the upstairs villa had two separate bedroom suites--one on each side of the villa. Each suite had a shower and large bathroom so three people could easily share the room together. My husband and I shared ours with our 27 year old daughter and we had a lot of space for all our individual toiletries in the vanity across from the sink. There wasn't much room on the sides of the sink to place items, but we made it work. The kitchen was fully supplied with dishes, many different types of glassware from wine glasses, juice glasses, beer glasses and water glasses. There were bowls of several different sizes and all the pans you would need to cook on the cooktop. There wasn't an oven, but we didn't really miss it. There was a microwave, toaster, blender/juicer and dishwasher. Fresh towels were delivered half way through our stay. Throughout our visit, we were contacted to make sure there wasn't anything we needed. The pool was not heated, so we weren't able to go in; but we spent many evenings drinking wine by the side of the pool relaxing in the sunshine. We made three family meals in the villa and Neva made us an amazing dinner the last night were were there. We felt completely safe in the villa and on the grounds as it was a completed gated villa. San Gimignano was a short 15 minute or so drive and there was a grocery store within 20 minutes. The hardest part was keeping track of the hours the grocery stores and restaurants were open. Both were closed several hours each afternoon. The restaurants on the sides of the road open at 7:00 p.m. We flew into Florence which was about an hour's drive to the villa. We made day trips to Pisa, the Ligurian Sea, Rome (by train), and Florence. We would definitely return!
Everything we hoped and wished for
Had an amazing week long stay in this villa with extended family. Gorgeous grounds and pool, lots of nice lounging areas, wonderful hosts, and perfect location. The apartments (the villa has 2 separate apartments, we rented them both) have all the modern conveniences and luxuries, but take you back to early Tuscan architecture.
We were able to do day trips to Florence, Pisa, Venice, and Cinque Terre very comfortably. The villa is out in the country with the nearest town being about 10 miles away. Perfect place to unwind and relax. We saw the spiral arm of the Milky Way while laying in the hammocks every night.
The only sad part was leaving. It was also nice to have Neva and Giovanni nearby for help and advice. We would recommend this villa without hesitation and hope to go back some day.
Beautiful villa, amazing location, welcoming hosts
This villa was everything we hoped it would be. Our hosts were warm and welcoming throughout our stay. Despite the language barrier, we were able to communicate with each other. They did everything they could to ensure we were happy and comfortable, from providing a table full of food and wine upon our arrival, to ensuring any problems we encountered were handled quickly (our stay coincided with some cool evenings and we had some trouble with the heating, which had to be fixed, but this was dealt with by our hosts). The villa is stunning. Our group of 8 adults and 3 children rented both apartments in the villa and both apartments were beautifully decorated with traditional Tuscan antiques. Both were very clean, with nice linens for the beds and comfortable towels for showering and using the pool. The beds were very comfortable. All cooking utensils we needed were provided. The grounds are impeccably maintained and so, so beautiful - very relaxing. Several areas for sitting and relaxing or eating outdoors. We would absolutely rent this villa again and would recommend to friends. The location is also great - San Gimignano is a 20 min drive, Siena is about 45-min drive, Florence 1 hr, Volterra about 30 min, Chianti region was about 1 hour. This is an experience we will never forget and hope to repeat someday soon!
Excellent villa & pool
Great villa. Excellent pool & outdoor areas. Quiet & spacious, a very high standard of accommodation.
The nearest town with shops for daily provides is Gambassi Terme only 10 minutes away or San Gimignano but is much busier.
We have one restaurant walking distance and one only 1 minute drive down the road in Castagno.
