About Petra

Why Petra chose Siena Province

Not a long time ago we decided to share them with people who, as we do, love nature, the tradition of simple things and appreciate the care for every little detail, typical of a domestic management.

... We warmly welcome you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We spent 2 beautiful weeks at this lovely villa at the end of May and could not have been happier with the property and it's lovely surroundings. It was secluded but within easy distance to many wonderful hill towns and vineyards. Our three young children enjoyed the pool, tennis court and running through the vineyards. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation in this breathtakingly beautiful part of Italy.

Lovely rustic Tuscan experience

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this villa in early September. The house is approached down a very long track through the vineyards and is truly secluded. If you're looking for a remote setting with fantastic sunsets then this is the place for you!

Two things really made our week here, firstly we had the pleasure of the lovely Maria Rosa cooking for us on a number of evenings, the food was amazing and it was great to see her at work in the kitchen. Secondly we made the most of the tennis court at the villa by arranging for Alberto the local tennis pro to come and coach us.

The house is well located for Siena and Florence and the nearby village Radda is very picturesque and has most of what you need however the supermarket is possibly a little limited with selections so bear in mind you might need to travel further afield for any specific items.

The bathrooms have been recently renovated and are quite stylish. Our only minor comments (which are easily fixed and which might not be important for others), it would have been great if there was a nespresso style coffee machine at the villa and if you're unfortunate to have a rainy few days the TV channels are fairly limited!

This truly is a very special location and to be in the midst of the vineyards in the beautiful Tuscan countryside was very memorable.

Beautiful, Peaceful location but close Siena and Florence

  • 5 of 5

This is a most beautiful, authentic Tuscan property for a family holiday in Tuscany. We stayed during a heatwave (100 degrees) and were in the amazing pool at least twice a day! Some of us enjoyed the tennis too! Very private, beautiful location overlooking vineyards. Flat lawn area and plenty of areas of shade during the day. No issues with mosquitoes at all here (inside or out) which was lovely! We enjoyed meals at the table outside during the evening. Owners very quick to respond to all communications in the run up to our stay. We had a WONDERFUL holiday here with no issues at all! We'd definitely book it again. Location very convenient to Siena and Florence as well as numerous hilltop towns. Furnishings very comfortable for a family and 3 bathrooms were a definite plus!

Our last stay in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

For a family hollidays, we've decided to search for a villa in the Siena region. We wanted both a place for fun (eg: swiming pool) and a central point for visiting. The villa Lisidor was perfect and exactly like the description within the web site. A warm welcome by the housekeeper was a important plus.

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa with our three college/post college age children and absolutely loved this location. The views were stunning, there were many places to visit nearby, and a few days we went to either Siena or Florence. There are excellent restaurants within a reasonable distance in every direction.

We played tennis every single day. The owner was very responsive and the property well maintained. An epic vacation. One definitely needs a car to get around the area. Though we didn't rent bikes, I can see that it would be an excellent, though challenging, place to bike. Another time!

Classic Tuscan villa

  • 5 of 5

5 women, ages 60+, stayed in this villa for a week in Sept 2013. It is a beautiful, classic Tuscan villa in the middle of vineyards. You breathe a sigh of relief, and all your tension dissolves once you step foot inside. A full size kitchen, large dining room table, swimming pool, comfortable furniture all add to the comfort. Petra, the owner, answered all our questions/concerns as we considered booking, and then as the date for our arrival approached. Although a little far from some of the more popular hill towns (Montepulciano was an hour+; Lucca almost 2 hours), it is quite close to Radda and Gaiole. Both have great restaurants and are lovely towns in which to stroll for an afternoon or evening. Petra put us in contact with a chef, who came to the house one evening and cooked a typical Tuscan dinner, which was one of the highlights of the trip! We had enough leftovers for another meal! My friends and I reminisce fondly of our week at the villa and look forward to returning.

Dear Petra

This was are 5th stay at Villa Lisador, which is an indication of how much we enjoy the house and where it is situated. We really like the swimming pool and tennis court. The accommodation is quite basic although very comfortable. I suppose someone way want slightly more modern kitchen and bathrooms, but this does not effect our enjoyment of the house.

One small area of improvement could be ensuring all of the "essentials" are there on arrival, like milk, bin liners, loo roll, olive oil, charcoal for bbq, dish washer tablets - salt and rinse agent.

My wifie Heidi is a architect and thought the property had scope to convert the downstairs which is currently storage and perhaps get more light in the property and improve the views from the living space. I hope you don't mind me mentioning this, but we thought it was an interesting idea. There would obviously be financial implications to do this and then the rental would be higher etc.

I will look at you other villas again and we will consider coming again next year.

Best wishes

Andrew

Owner's Response: Actually returning guests are the best indication of satisfaction and we are really very happy when it happens! Yes, the furnishing are very basic and simple: this because our aim is to keep the villa rustic with most Tuscan features, as we think that a very modern structure would lose the charm of typical local environments. So we try to maintain a compromise between modern and traditional. I appreciate a lot your wifes suggestions on how to improve the villa: in fact the windows are small and we could for sure try to exploit the ground floor: we often dream of this .. ! But besides the financial implications there are also the township restrictions which don’t allow to make any changes to the house, being this a 300 years old farm. We are trying to add more and more essentials for our guests for their arrival: such suggestions are always very helpful, thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to improve our service! So we hope to have you and your beautiful family back for the 6th stay at LisiDor!
