Wonderful villa in Tuscany
Large villa in the heart of Tuscany. Beautiful area. Lots of space - wonderful kitchen. The roads to Radicondoli are winding, easy to drive, but take time. Siena, San Gimignano, and Florence are close drives. The host provided wine and biscuits upon our arrival - and this was greatly appreciated. Washing machine in the basement is a big plus.
Absolutely delightful place....
Simply the most helpful owner ever. Waited until 0100 in the morning when we finally arrived.
Lovely old place with a great walk to the village.
Will come back.
Authentic and relaxing
Our week in this beautiful villa met all our expectations and more. Francesca and Lorenzo made us welcome from the minute we arrived and let us enjoy the property without intrusion. Radicondoli is a very small town but it had everything we needed as we discovered by wandering into the tiny grocery store and by dining at two wonderful restaurants. The relaxing atmosphere here was hard to leave.
Hope to return here in the future
We had a most wonderful week here at this lovely villa. Stunning property, total peace and quiet. The view was spectacular. We loved just staying in but did venture into Radicondoli for groceries and dinners out. I highly recommend Agriteca and La Pergola, both had excellent food. Being here was so relaxing, it was hard to motivate ourselves to leave. We loved meeting Francesca and Lorenzo and hope to return someday. Thank you so much for sharing your family property.
We were very pleased to host Barbara and her friends in our home: we immediately felt that they would appreciate the authenticity of architecture and furnishings and and all the little details we love and we were happy to see them so curious and satisfied and happy to be there feeling like at home. They spontaneously took care of the house and the garden with love and great sensibility, exactly as if they were theirs. It was a pleasure to talk with them. They left the house (and the garden) in perfect condition and we would love to host them again
all our best
Francesca and Lorenzo
This was paradise
Thinking Radicondoli looked like it might be a good central location for daily outings throughout Tuscany, we chose this property for a one-week stay. We immediately fell in love with this villa and its location and began trimming down plans to travel out from here daily. This was paradise. We loved the villa, the owners, the peace and quiet and the spectacular view. We could walk/hike or drive into Radicondoli, just up the hill from the villa, buy groceries or have dinner. We ate at Agriteca and La Pergola and loved both of them. We spent as much time at the villa as possible and made ourselves visit Siena and San Gimignano feeling we had to take the opportunity while in Tuscany. For us (three friends), this was everything and more that we could have asked for. We spent a lot of time at the kitchen table looking out the window to the west. Saw spectacular sunsets every night. The villa is surrounded by farmland and we loved hearing the sheep with their cowbells moving from pasture to pasture. If I return to Italy, I would chose to stay here again for the peace and quiet, relaxation and beauty of this location.
If you are interested in venturing out daily to the smaller towns in the heart of Tuscany - Radicondoli is a great location. But beware- you might never want to leave the villa!
Lovely Villa in the Heart of Tuscany ...
There is not a week that has gone by without my mind returning over and over to this stunning property and the wonderful memories we made while spending a blissful week last August at this Villa.
Breathtakingly beautiful grounds surround this impressive Villa perched high on a hilltop with magnificent views of the valley and charming village of Radicondoli. The owners, Francesca and Lorenzo, welcomed us upon our arrival and were great to provide us with lots of information about local happenings, wonderful dining options and fabulous day trips.
After a restful night's sleep, we began each day sitting on the porch drinking a cup of Italian coffee and planning our day's activities while listening to Vivaldi and soaking in the spectacular views.
The Villa is beautifully decorated and offers all the comforts of home. Day trips were spent exploring the regions of Chianti, Montalcino, Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena and Livorno. Dinners at Agriteca and Le Pergola in the village were wonderful as was the Street Art Festival with live music set up on one of the cobble stone streets in the village one evening.
