We absolutely loved our stay in San rocco a pilli in Sovicille. The accommodations were amazing with a beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside. It was the perfect place to relax after our whirlwind tour of Rome. We cannot say enough about our wonderful hosts, Letizia and Lucca. Letizia met us at the train station and drove us to the home, stopping along the way for us to pick up groceries. She and Lucca visited briefly that evening. The next morning Letizia picked us up and drove us to a fabulous winery in Chianti, and then gave us a tour of Siena. She is so sweet - we hated to say goodbye. If we could, we would give this place 10 stars! Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Florence/Siena areas.

Wonderfully welcoming hosts Luca and Letitia!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples staying here for 6 nights. The property is really well located - easy travelling distance to all the Chianti/Tuscan sights and also close to the supermarket and restaurants in the town. The pool is fantastic and we certainly needed it because the temperatures were so high. The facilities in the apartment were good (be aware that the showers/toilets aren't ensuite) and the environment was very quiet and relaxing. Luca and Letizia were incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming hosts and they each showed us special places in Tuscany. Even Luca's Mama brought us some of her homemade jam! And their friend's winery that we went to for tasting and lunch (Poggio Amoralli) was delicious, scenic and fair value. We had a great week, thanks!

Perfect Tuscan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Luca and his wife were beyond generous and kind to our family while we were away. We had a little hiccup with our car rental and Luca didn't hesitate to jump in and help us. The house was perfect. We were traveling with two small children and they had a blast in the pool. Staying here really made our trip awesome.

A great place to unwind.

  • 5 of 5

We were stopping between Rome and Lucca for a spot to stop, unwind, swim in the pool and just take in the beauty. This is a beautiful place and Luca was very helpful and charming. We will return.

Tranquility in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic is the best way to sum it up. Luca and Leticia were wonderful. They picked us up at the train station and took us back. Selected a terrific vineyard where we had a great lunch and tasted the best of Chianti-even drove us there and back! The villa was perfect for the ample space and view. Well equipped kitchen, pool, hot tub, comfy beds, good towels etc, easy day trips to all the sites. The local village had a nice grocery store, pharmacy and restaurant that was walkable. Luca even made us his own Lemonchello!

We loved staying here! The property is absolutely beautiful (and if you're a runner, there are miles of country roads to run on with fantastic views) and Luca and Letizia are fabulous!! We had a HUGE thunderstorm one night that caused a few issues...a quick text to Luca, and he came right out, and had everything fixed and perfect in under an hour! at 9 o'clock at night! The location of this property is also fantastic! It's walking (or super quick driving) distance to San Rocco a Pilli- which has a grocery, a yummy restaurant, coffee, etc.- which is so convenient. It's only a half-hour or so from Siena, and centrally located to so many places! We rented a car and did afternoon/day trips to Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Chianti (for fabulous wine-tasting at Luca's recommendation), and San Gimignano . It was absolutely wonderful, and meeting Luca and Letizia was a highlight of our trip (and their adorable bulldog William : ).
