  • Beyond Description

    "It has taken time to write this review because we (four well-traveled adults from the U.S. and Brazil) wanted to do justice to the beauty of La Limonaia. It is one of the most special places we have stayed in in Europe. Located on a very large tract of land, adjacent to an old villa in Vitiano, La Limonaia, as the name suggests, was used to store lemon trees during the cold months before the building was completely renovated. Now the well-built large house has the look and feel of a villa and is even nicer than the photos on the site. The house is furnished with fine artifacts, paintings and comfortable beds (real ones), sofas and chairs. The kitchen, which looks out onto the spacious dining and living room area, has all of the utensils and spices that you need to prepare simple or gourmet meals (should you also be or have an inspired chef). Given the quality furnishings, the overall décor, and the inviting patio and gardens, La Limonaia would be a dream to live in twelve months a year. Thankfully, we got to spend a week there at the end of June. We spent our evenings on the patio admiring the surroundings and experimenting different wines from the region. During the day, we explored Tuscany. La Limonaia is located on a quiet, two-lane road off a main thoroughfare. It is a convenient base for visits to Castilglion Fiorentino, Cortona, Monte San Savino, Montepulciano and Arezzo. Florence, Siena and Assisi are also easily accessible on well-marked byways. Within a 10- to 15-minute radius by car, which you really do need, there are at least two supermarkets (we preferred the Coop), a small produce market, a great “panetteria” that makes bread without salt, a pharmacy as well as a nice coffee shop at the nearby train station. Margreth, the gracious owner of La Limonaia, compiled an extensive list of towns to visit and places to shop and dine. This list is available for guests along with useful guidebooks and a history-in-progress of the villa being written by her husband. A must restaurant for pasta, meat and fish is the “Antica Pieve,” which is very near (but not walkable from) La Limonaia. Margret was able to get us a last-minute reservation there on a Saturday night, which was lucky for us, because we had arrived late and hungry in the early evening on that same day, and the restaurant was fully booked by locals. We found Margreth to be very generous with her time. She was waiting for us when we got there, as were a welcome bottle of"

    "Bij aankomst werden we gastvrij onthaald door Christina, de eigenaresse met een fles zelfgemaakte rode wijn. Het huis beschikt over 3 ruime slaapkamers en 2 badkamers en is sfeervol ingericht. In de werkelijk schitterende tuin en bij het mooie zwembad kom je helemaal tot rust na een uitstapje naar b.v. Arezzo, Cortona of Perugia. Kortom deze agriturismo is zeker de moeite waard."

  • Sweet holiday for two

    "Elegant, secluded and comfortable are the words. This cottage offered us a real relaxing holiday in Italy and we can’t wait to do this again. Clean and even more beautiful in living colors than in pictures, La Chianina was such a great experience. It’s located in the countryside (which was perfect, as we wanted to run away from traffic and smog), it has a great garden and a fantastic pool you can relax in. Something that we really appreciated was the beamed ceiling in the bedroom. Made everything even more romantic. A big thank you to La bella Toscana for making this possible and to the owner, who hosted us with kindness."
