  • Unbeschreiblich

    "- Tolle Lage mitten in der Region, aber schnell in alle Richtungen - Gut ausgestattetes Appartement mit allem was man braucht (Italien-Adapter für Nicht-Eurostecker einstecken...) - Erholung und Entspannung pur"

  • A piece of heaven in Tuscany

    "Stefano's place was a small piece of heaven. Tastefully decorated, it's situated 'off grid' in a lovely part of Tuscany. Surrounded by woods, olive groves and vineyards, our children loved to play in the outdoors. Stefano was accommodating and kind. We would love to go back and stay longer!"

  • Perfect

    "For our 50th wedding anniversary, we took all of our kids, spouses and grandchildren (15 total) to Italy for two weeks. The seven day stay at Villa Patrigone was the high point of the trip. This is a true Tuscan experience. Now if you are expecting a 4 or 5 star property this is not for you. V, Simon, and Simon's mom have restored a farm house that has been there from probably the 14th century. We stayed in the house part, that has 7 bedrooms. From the house it was the the perfect place to explore all the surrounding villages along with the larger Siena and Florence ( you have to have a car). Take Simon's advice and not try to fill every minute of you stay with site seeing. Sitting by the pool, drinking the house refillable Chianti, while enjoying a perfect sunset, can't be missed. Also don't miss V's dinner if she has it, but trust their restaurant recommendations. We did not have a meal in the region that wasn't a true eating experience. Even the local football club's pizza place. where we watched a couple of European cup matches, had some of the best pizzas I've had ever, and they were 6 to 8 euros for an 18 inch. We are thinking of getting 4 or 5 couples together and returning. One couple we met was back for their 4th visit. Also bring home some great Olive Oil."

  • Apartment Begonia

    "We spent a week in July at the Begonia apartment/ holiday home at Villa Il Borraccio. The friendly owner Gabriella spoke no English but we managed to communicate with our little bit of italian. There are 3 rental properties on the site, 2 having 2-3 bedrooms and the Begonia, a small bungalow with one double bedroom, lounge, kitchen an bathrooom plus a terrace. It overlooks vineyards and hills and the view from the kitchen window was to die for. There is a sizable swimming pool with loungers and large umbrellas which we had to ourselves most of the time. Villa il Borraccio is situated in very large and beautiful grounds on the main road between the small town of Tavarnelle val di Pesa and Barbarino Val D'Elsa. There is a pedestrian footpath aongide the road in both directions with superb vistas of the Tuscan hlls and valleys. To Barbarino it took about 10 minutes to walk. This is a very well preserved very traditional Tuscan village with beautiful buildings and church and fantastic views. There is a panoramic terrace in front of the church with a restaurant and pizzeria, both very good, but you may need to book in advance.In the small village square is another very good pizzeria.The weather the week we were there was extremely hot and the first night we got bitten by mosquitos outside on the terrace but we bought mosquito repellent devices and citronella candles the next day which seemed to work. The nearest large supermarket is just past Barbarino near Poggibonsi on the road to San Gimignano and is called PAM. It's open on Sundays too. The location of the property is excellent for visiting Florence, San Gimignano and Siena plus the Chianti villages. There is a bus to Florence and Siena from Tavrnelle and Barbarino, which passes the house. We decided to drie to Florence and parked at a free car park immediately after the motorway junction just before Certosa, then caught to bus to the centre. It cost 1.20 euros and you buy tickets at the cafebar just past the car park. The journey to the centre takes about 20 mins and stops at Florence main railway station. i would defintitely recommend this property if you like peace and quiet, apart from just the sound of birds and cicadas."
