The villa had a charming, rustic feel. beautiful old italian furniture and paintings and very comfortable rooms. a place where one could make themselves at home. very peaceful location only birdsong and crickets heard [ and cockcrow] . . the outdoor space, gardens and pool were a joy, lots of steps though and the pool perhaps wasn't young child friendly the owners were very welcoming and accommodating, thoughtfully providing a great welcome pack, washing facilities and good drying ground. all linen and bedrooms very clean and pretty. kitchen facilities very good. John from Chesterfield, Derbyshire (30 June 2018)
Rustic, clean, comfortable, owners very helpful. Only downside was number of mosquitoes & therefore bites. Ian from Winchester (27 August 2016)
Beautifully situated - view from the pool is stunning - perfect for watching the sun setting and then the bats. House well supplied with plenty of cooking utensils and crockery. Excellent bbq and outdoor seating in a lovely tranquil garden setting. Sunny paved garden and table in front garden for the morning rays too. . due to the house being the owners home it was full of personal touches and great artwork. . owners very friendly gifting produce from the garden including homemade jam. . it provided us with an ideal base for seeing many major sites of interest. Very hard to find though especially when arriving in the dark. The owner was a total star coming out in the early hours to find us when we had lost hope and thought we would be sleeping on the roadside!. . would use again. Mark from Cambridge (12 September 2015)
Very good sized property, very clean. Views from pool area were good. The location was very good for exploring the region. Towels and bedding were of poor quality. Jack from Surrey (22 August 2015)
A lovely, well appointed villa. Well equipped, spacious, comfortable. Could do with some better quality towels and pillows. Plenty of outside seating and beds by the pool. Pool area is lovely as is the view from the pool. The friendly owner is on site, but very discreet. Jennie from Newbury (15 August 2015)
Superb location overlooking the valley. the villa has large, excellent gardens with a clean and pleasant swimming pool. Distance to the main town was just 10 minutes by car (which is essential) and other towns of interest including the stunning gimignano are within a short drive and siena not too far either. In august, it was very warm at night and in the ideal world air con would be nice. . whilst the owners next door were as helpful as they could be, some more instructions on various matters in english would have been most useful (like how to get hot water in the kitchen !) and I would have expected one or two simple items being available on arrival (e.g. Washing up liquid, a dish cloth and soap in the bathrooms). a few things internally could do with an update and the towels provided were basic and hard. But overall the villa views outweighed the rest - but take mosi spray and watch out for biting ants by the pool !!! Nick from Stone, Staffordshire (09 August 2015)
Charming and delightfully old fashioned villa. Obviously a much loved home that was our privilege to share. Tracy from Redhill (01 August 2015)
We were disappointed with the villa. it would benefit from being completely updated. "rustic charm " was misleading and whilst one can appreciate it may be typical of an italian home, when paying a lot of money one expects basic commodities like safe electrics, sanitary fittings fit for purpose, air conditioning instead of noisy fans and adequate kitchen ware. However the owners were very unobtrusive and helpful. Jane from Lingen (11 July 2015)
Lovely villa, set in beautiful surroundings. Gardens and pool area were excellent and well maintained by the owners. The owners who lived below could not be more helpful and made our stay so much more enjoyable. Despite them not speaking english we were able to communicate well with them with our knowledge of french and italian. Would certainly recommend this villa which is well situated to visit the many places of interest including sienna, florence and pisa. My son flew in from perth to rome and connected easily with us via express trains to florence and coach to colle di val d'elsa a short distance from the villa. The fast train service to rome from florence enabled us all to visit rome twice at a reasonable cost. Rod from Stourbridge (13 June 2015)
Good supply of hot water. Lovely swimming pool. Good location for visiting surrounding places Jane from Leicestershire (27 September 2014)
Excellent friendly owners on site who were there if you wanted them but not intrusive. Very relaxing environment to enjoy your holiday in. Phillip from Colchester (02 August 2014)
Absolutely wonderful villa. The photographs do not do this fantastic place justice. Superb location and excellent accommodation. Would definately recommend to others. Mr Sibley from Rainham (August 2013)
