My daughter and I spent a wonderful week here. Lovely home and fantastic host. Paola took us to Florence for a day and showed us around her favourite places and she arrange a cooking class right on the property for us and couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was perfect. Thank you so much Paola. We even had the pleasure of tasting fresh figs from the fig tree. Wonderful!!!! The listing description is accurate and the home is well maintained and clean. I would recommend this place to friends and relatives. The location is spot on for getting around Tuscany. Easy access to a grocery store and we had a fabulous meal at the restaurant just down the road. We had the vacation of a lifetime!!! Thank you,ThankYou Paola! Hugs Kathy and Kelly (Canada)

A dream come true!!!

  • 5 of 5

Truly a villa in Tuscany! Paola the owner is absolutely wonderful, kind and attentive! We loved the villa from the moment we walked in, it felt like home! To the point that we extended 4 more nights!!! Warm & cozy with all the "home conveniences" one could ask for. Our teenagers were especially happy with the fast internet. The landscape, the drive up and the view is wonderful! If I could own a piece of Tuscany it would be like this one. Super convenient location for day trips around the area. 10 mins away from Firenze and 2 minutes from their huge local supermarket. We will definitely be returning, maybe for a couple of months! Paola, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful villa with us and making us feel at home! We will certainly miss the villa and most definitely miss you! We hope to see you again the near future!

Tuscan delight!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this 2B/2 Bath apt. hoping it would provide the peace and quiet one needs after spending time in nearby Florence. The train station is very close, and offers a means of transportation to get to/from Florence, and nearby areas, easily. Their property was far more than we anticipated. The owners are very kind, and the perfect hosts who organized everything we requested - even a chef to come to a private kitchen for a lesson in preparing delicate pasta with delicious sauces. The hostess introduced us to several relatives and friends, along with the local merchants to make our stay feel more like "home" than just a rental.

The apt. is well appointed for making meals, and the large windows offer views of their lovely olive gardens. The pool is an added bonus! You will find warm hospitality here, with memories to last a lifetime. Highly recommend.

Tuscany Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Paola was absolutely wonderful! It was a great spot for the four of us traveling together (2 couples). We especially enjoyed the kitchen which has everything needed to prepare a nice meal with all the fresh ingredients that Italy has to offer. Not only is the apartment nicely decorated but it has a wonderful floor plan with 2 full bathrooms, large windows and a nice sitting area. The grounds surrounding the house are lined with Olive trees. There is a small local store within walking distance as well, with fresh produce and bread. Paola is very helpful and knowledgeable on the areas nearby and has many great recommendations. Our stay here was exactly what I had pictured and more! A wonderful place to relax and experience Tuscany and Florence! The only thing more beautiful than this place is Paola herself, she went so far above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable!

Simply Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was absolutely incredible. The location could not be better, allowing the full experience of the Tuscan country side, but still being 20 minutes to Florence by car or bus. The hospitality of the hostess was second to none, the house was beautiful and the grounds were beautiful. I cannot recommend this as a place to stay any higher.

The hostess took us on a walking tour of Florence, giving us the locals perspective and telling us all the good places to eat. She left us wine on our check in night and brought us good from the bakery a few nights later, as well as directing us to all of the best attractions and places to visit.

The negative review is ignorant and blind. I am not sure what upset him but I don't see it at all. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment and it was clean and exceeded all expectations. We were able to tour the cottage and it was very clean and in excellent shape.

If I ever come back to Tuscany, I will be staying here again.

Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful apartment from June 28 through July 5, 2014. The apartment is as gorgeous as in the pictures and was very comfortable for me, my husband and our two teenage children.

The property is situated on the top of a Tuscan hill. There are olive groves & grape vines on the hill. The location is ideal for doing day trips to Pisa, Luca, Siena, Florence, Chianti, etc. There is a supermarket about 5 minutes from the base of the hill which made it convenient to pick up groceries on our way home. The kids loved having a pool to jump into after a day of sightseeing.

Paola is an exceptional hostess. She went out of her way to make us feel special and meet our needs. When she found out that we had arrived without time to stop for lunch, she whipped up a Tuscan dish for us to enjoy. She also took us on a walking tour of Florence to hidden places that most tourists would not find.

Paola's son Francesco was always available to answer questions too. He had a nice dessert, wine and goodies waiting for us in the apartment. He showed us where the local restaurants & grocery store were located.

I have already recommended this apartment to friends planning a trip to Italy. It's really a lovely place that I hope to visit again.
