"Relaxing Holiday Place"
We booked this villa for a week to chill out and relax. We never really left the property only to walk to the shops for food and to replenish the wine rack. We were a large group of couples and all fo… More
Thank you so much for your kind review. Guests often tell us they found the villa has a real home from home feel. For people such as yourselves just wanting to have a complete chill out, relaxing holiday break it is perfect. Not far as you found out to go get supplies with great supermarkets selling good priced wines, and local produce and well as several nice restaurants to choose from too. Hope your drive back home went ok and thanks for recommending us to your friends. kind regards Antonio

"Amazing Tuscan Villa Rental"
We have just had a perfect family Holiday at Villa Rossa. When weopened the door we thought wow! The villa with its beautiful cottofloors and typical beamed ceilings was as we imagined our dream Tusca… More
Hello again and a big thank you for your kind review. The property as you found is perfect for family groups especially those with small children like yourselves. Close to the historic centre & with a lovely enclosed garden & pool area created with little ones safety in mind. We are happy to try help out where we can with any problems our guests might have however small. We are very conscientious when it comes to the running of our villa. Although technically we only rent out a property, we do like to give added value where we can. In your case we could appreciate your frustration, trying to sort out a problem in a country with a different culture & language. As you said "having us to rely gave you real peace of mind should further problems occur". Thank you also for your booking next year and we are so looking forward to seeing you all again. You were a joy to have as guests at our villa. kind regards Antonio

This house was very dusty with cobwebs and spiders everywhere. The floors were so dusty that you could see the dust getting kicked up when you walked around. We travelled with 4kids for three months a… More
We are shocked by your review and that you found the property lacking, especially as you gave no indication of this when we met saying "the villa was lovely!". The villa is checked prior to guests arrival and was not presented in the way you describe. With regards the table cloths, the dining table inside has a table protector on our antique table, which can be removed at anytime. In addition there are a choice of wipe clean table cloths for people with children and other fabric tablecloths for those who would prefer it. If the plastic table cloth was offensive you only needed to replace it with a fabric one! The main kitchen and living area is on the middle floor, however you didn't mention that on the ground floor leading to the pool area which houses our standard size pool and garden, there is also in addition a bathroom, second living area and kitchen which guests use when eating outside. We are devastated that you chose to raise issues in a review once you had left, as oppose to when you were here with us thus giving us the chance put right the things we could that were a concern to you. We did explain that we are not a hotel and that daily cleaning was not included or advertised, although this could be booked if required at an extra cost. People renting self catering usually clean as they go along! on reflection it might have been better for you to book a hotel as oppose to our villa. We do however wish you all the best in the future. kind regards Antonio

"2 Families with 4 kids under 5!"
We highly recommend this villa for anyone staying with young children. We were very impressed with this house! Two kitchens made it very easy for 2 families and the large lounge and dinner area were g… More
Thanks for your review, the villa has been designed for families to enjoy with children of all ages. With safety in mind it has the pool area gated as well as the garden. The local amenities are always handy and as you said have everything you need. As the restaurants in Italy tend to start serving at 7pm or after it can be a challenge for families with little ones, however as we pointed out when we met, we do have 2 restaurants that serve from 6pm which for groups with small children is a real plus. Thanks again for the review. kind regards Antonio
