                                                              What a great house. Plenty of room. The location couldn't have been better.Bendetta met us promptly nd gave us a tour along with great restaurants to visit in the area. Of course there was a welcome bottle of wine. Thank you. We enjoyed our short stay. The views were spectacular. Barberino val D'elsa is a charming little walled city with everything you need right there. Fyi. House is located next to restaurant (which we enjoyed) and also the church. Lived the atmosphere of the place.

                                                              We have no complaints but praises for the homeowners and the neighbors.

                                                              What a place to stay!!! Bernadetta was very welcoming to my family. We rented a car from a local Poggibonsi company. We were able to go around Chianti with no fifficulty. Such a lovely neighborhood and terrific food- the pizzeria and the restaurant across us. Such luck to be in Barberino during the Cinghisle festival. Wine was overflowing and food ( cinghiale) was terrific. We met new friends during the festival and we were welcomed by the locals. Bernadetta- grazii for helping me make this trip truly remarkable for my sons and my husband. Until we meet again...your friend, Teresa

                                                              Hi Teresa,

                                                              You and your family have been just perfect guests and I am very glad I had the opportunity to know you. I really hope to see you in the future.

                                                              All the best to all your family.

                                                              Wonderful Home in Beautiful Tuscan Village

                                                              Our host could not have been nicer, Bernadetta was friendly and welcomed us into her family home. The views are stunning and the village is just as stunning. Very relaxing and peaceful, we wish we could stay longer.

                                                              Florence is an easy (mostly highway) 45 minute drive from Barberino Val d'Elsa. Other hill towns are convenient to town also.

                                                              We ate at the Bijou and Il Campanellino in the village. Both had some of the best food we have ahd in Italy. The owners are gracious and extremely friendly. Both offer views of the valleys.

                                                              We are looking forward to returning! Thank you Bernadetta.

                                                              Il paesino Barberino Val d'Elsa è molto carino e si trova a circa 25 minuti da Firenze città e 25 minuti da S. Giminiano. La casa è situata nel centro storico della città, i parcheggi liberi sono a pochi minuti a piedi dalla casa. Maria, la proprietaria, ci ha accolto calorosamente nella sua casa mostrandoci ogni dettaglio e spiegandoci tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno: dove si trovava un supermercato, i 2 ristoranti della città, etc. La casa è piuttosto grande ed è situata su due livelli, la cucina molto ben attrezzata, un ampio salone con un divano letto, due camere da letto e un bagno. Ci siamo trovati bene e lo consigliamo per un soggiorno nella zona.
