“Wonderful Truly Italian Villa”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2013

We have spent in Villa Della Rocca an amazing week last August. It was an unforgettable experience, everything here is wining your favour – comfortable and spacious house, spectacular and breathtaking view of a mountain valley, antique village filled with history, friendly neighbors and village citizens, striking nature and forests full of berries - all these peculiar points has made our holidays bright and unique. Living in a big city I was enjoying everything here… the atmosphere, the air, the sound of silence and so close starred sky. I would recommend it to everyone who is tired of spending all the time on the beach (while the sea is about one hour drive from the place), who wishes to see something absolutely different and not spoiled with crowds of tourists (while famous sights as Lucca, Florence and Pisa are easily reachable). If you want to plunge into typical Italy, walking through narrow stone paved streets, twisting around yards and gardens, feel the spirit of adventure and at the same time to spend some time in relaxing atmosphere far from the noise of the cities – this place is right for you.

“Incredible authentic experience of true Italian vacations”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2013

It was one the best holidays I’ve ever had in my life! I with boyfriend and friends were spending fantastic time in a true Italian Villa from the 18th century. Very stylish, all in flowers in both gardens with a perfect service we felt that were hosted like very special guests, actually like friends arriving to discover this still quite hidden but beautiful area. Every morning waking up and observing incredible mountain view or in the evening coming back from the sea, from sightseeing or from the cozy restaurant nearby we were sitting near the antique fire place with a glass of Italian wine and were thinking that now we truly know what Dolce Vita means. As you can see) was falling in love with this place so would want to come back and strongly recommend it to everybody searching for something Special!

“Stay of great dimensions”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2013

We made a trip at the beginning of November to catch the last moments of Toscana's autumn up. It was really hard to believe that we can find the small village and even the house in dark night - but we did! - thanks for the hospitality of the owner, the cosmopolitan-hungarian young professional, Balazs. I've already heard a lot about the Villa, but it seemed surprisingly palatial and spacious. Just try to imagine to have a living room-size bedroom and a ballroom-size dining room. In cities those buildings are "palazzi", in a village it is humbly a 'villa". Everything inside are very well-tailored: practical things (bath, kitchen) are useful, all the others are full of spirit, charm and humor. In the garden you can see the previous guest's work on rosemary bush - they intentioned to make a fence for the plant, so they did so. It seemed they felt home... The second surprise was the neighbourhood - a dozen of tiny, intimate village, with no turists and souvenir-shops. So, to have a brake, some fresh mountain-air, to imagine yourself back a better and more relaxed time - it is the place.
