"Tuscany at Its Best"
What more could one want to celebrate a 50th Wedding Anniversary than a Tuscan villa to comfortably house 11 members of one's family; Annagloria and Enzo nearby to assist; easy access to Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Pisa, Carrara, Collodi, and Florence, etc.; pool in olive grove for grandchildren; and Marta's wonderful meals--especially the Anniversary Dinner complete with Violin Duo on the patio. And don't forget the spectacular views of the countryside. Fantastico!

"Wonderful villa. Beautiful scenery. Excellent service."
We just spent twenty wonderful days enjoying this Tuscany villa with six to eight of our family or friends joining us each week. It was a trip to remember, and we are already thinking about when we can get back. Annagloria and Enzo are the perfect hosts...always quick to respond with answers to questions, requests for custom dinners, special rides to/from local destinations, etc. We had three beautiful weeks of weather and the villa was exceptionally comfortable and quiet every night.
I've never seen a more beautiful place than Tuscany, and I walked about 150 miles over the course of those three weeks enjoying every step. The grape and olive fields seem to go on forever, and I only wish I could be here this autumn when harvesting begins. That will indeed be a sight to see. But in the meanwhile, we discovered that both the food and wine is fantastic anywhere we tried, whether this was at any of the local wineries, restaurants or hotels. It is just a wonderful place to visit and I can't wait to come back again.
Both the villa and its owners were a wonderful discovery and I look forward to our return.
Regards, Brad C.

I traveled with my whole family 13 in all the ages 9 through 70(me) there was something for everyone you couldn't get a more beautiful setting and the villa was quite comfortable . Having the owner next door was a big plus, Anagloria was a big help in many ways mostly in suggesting thing to do. She also arranged for Martha to come in cook for us on several occasions it was a big hit with the family to come home after touring all day to a great home cooked meal. She also arranged for a great guide for florence. We filled every room to capacity I think we pushed it a little bit but who cares we were family. I would recommend this villa to any one especially families. I plan to return some day but next time I am just going to relax and enjoy the local area and soak in the culture. The villa is in a great location 5 minutes from the highway and many wineries and Tarvanelle was delightful in the evening.you can't go wrong with this villa but I suggest at least two weeks to enjoy it all.

This Villa is magnificent for a group of friends, plenty of room, bathrooms and private zones to take five. The views a just fabulous! There is great with a supermarket (Co-op) just 5 mins drive or 25 mins walk. The Villa owners are helpful with arranging tours or tips on directions or site-seeing. Cooking class, arranged through the Villa, was a hit, we are all "Master Chefs". Overall fantastic ambiance.
thank you for your nice review, it has been a pleasure to meet you n your friends n happy to know you enjoyed your stay so much
hope to have the chance to host you soon again

"Tutti insieme in una casa da sogno!"
Il bello di questa struttura è stato il fatto di poter passare dei giorni con gli amici condividendo gli spazi comuni come l'ampia cucina con attrezzatura adeguata per tante persone, la sala da pranzo e i vari soggiorni per il relax e nello stesso tempo avere la propria privacy nelle camere con bagno privato, il tutto arredato piacevolmente ed immerso nella bella campagna toscana. Abbiamo potuto assaggiare ed acquistare prodotti locali come l'olio d'oliva ed il vino Chianti, prodotti direttamente nella terra circostante di proprietà dei gestori della struttura. Abbiamo passato un Capodanno da favola! Ci torneremo senz'altro!
