“Home from home with a view to die for!”
A charming apartment in a wonderful location. There was plenty of room for 8 people to have their own space but to also get together for meals etc. There was more than enough equipment, both in the house and for outside (chairs and loungers). As a party of 8 adults we had to be creative with sleeping arrangements, as downstairs only has one true bedroom. This bedroom also has no air con and felt dark and stuffy in spite of the fans provided. Having said that, we had no complaints and the owners were very helpful in making suggestions to accommodate our needs. The views around the whole property are breathtaking, including Volterra on a distant hill. The pool is large and clean but was busy at times (mid August). The local town is only a couple of miles away but a car is necessary to explore further afield. Overall we had a relaxing holiday in a stunning location.
“Amaizing palace and lovely, helpful people”
In June we spent a fantastic week with 3 kids in Tuscan Skies. The booking process was incredibly easy and the owner is very helpful. Jill, the local representative was a great help all the way through. The apartment is great, very tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable and really well equipped. It truly felt like home. The kids enjoyed the pool very much. We spent lovely mornings and evenings in the pretty garden and enjoyed the barbecue too. It is a tranquil place and the view around is amazing. We would definitely recommend it to families with children. Beata
Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind comments, Beata. We are always delighted to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay. We promise you something special, and it is pleasing to us that 'Tuscan Skies' has been your base for a great vacation.
“Most beautiful and wonderful vacation for my family”
Tuscan Skies was absolutely lovely. The owners are incredible and Jill the manager was so helpful. This holiday rental has everything to include NO INTERNET which was wonderful for the family. The teenagers actually played games, took a swim in the awesome pool and talked. Location was outstanding. Very close to beach and awesome historical sites. Amazing area. I would recommend this location and Tuscan Skies to anyone wanting to get away while enjoying a wonderful vacation. I would highly recommend Tuscan Skies. Incredible rental.
Owner's reply: We are so pleased you enjoyed it so much. We tell people the area is wonderful, but they don't always believe our word! It's great to have your endorsement. You will be pleased to know we will be making the property even more comfortable in the next couple of months.
“A home away from home under the Tuscan Skies”
Myself and my extended family (7 adults, 3 children) spent a very plesant week in Tuscan Skies villa. From the moment of booking Chris was extremely helpful and this helpfulness continued in Italy with his Kiwi Representative Jill, who couldn't do enough to help. The villa has everything you need for a self catering holiday, or if like us, you mainly ate out, is not too far from the villages of Volterra or Saline de Volterra for some lovely restaurants (just beware the windy roads and mad drivers!) The bedrooms were all a good size, very comfortable, and the shutters meant you had a great nights sleep. The swimming pool was a much needed respite from the Tuscan sun. Very relaxing trip, and beautiful villas, will definitely recommend.
“Tuscan skies,Hidden gem in Tuscany”
Just came back from holiday staying at the wonderful Tuscan skies ,a beautiful split level holiday home very well equipped ,clean & spacious ,nice garden to sit & relax with some of the local wine on a night or use the upstairs terrace stunning views of volterra & the surrounding countryside.,lovely pool area Hiring a car is a must as you'll need to drive to get about,the nearest village is only 5mins away,volterra is bit further but still only takes 20mins I would recommend Tuscan skies to anybody wishing to explore tuscany & looking for a relaxing holiday in a truly stunning landscape
Owner's reply: Thank you. It's great that visitors to the website can see just how much our guests enjoy being at 'Tuscan Skies'. It's a wonderful place to be at any time of the year.
“How to chill in the heat”
We went to Tuscan Skies after a complicated house move and desperately in need of a break. The apartment is so well equipped and comfortable that we were able to start relaxing immediately. The pool helped too. It is situated in an ideal place as there are local shops for basic necessities a few minutes drive away and not much further is Volterra, a wonderfully interesting and historic hill town. The landscape is rolling and very agricultural: crops were being cut during our stay and the Spar shop in Saline offered locally grown apricots at a snip. We also loved the restaurant in the square at Montecatini; lots of local atmosphere in the evening there too. All in all a brilliant week; wish it had been longer.
Owner's reply: We can't imagine a more relaxing escape after you've moved house, especially after the delays! One of the joys of the farming landscape is that the colours change all of the time. Even though we know the view so well, we still want to keep taking n3ew photos of it because it changes so much with the season and the lighting conditions. We trust that you are now fully settled into your new home.
“Stunning views and everything you need.”
Spacious accommodation and well equipped. Very good location for visiting Florence, Pisa and Sienna, as well as many pretty and historic villages. Garden and pool pleasant to sit out in the sun.
Owner's reply: We try to equip it to make your stay as near perfect as we can. The one thing we resist is installing Internet access. Sorry, but we want Tuscan Skies to be an escape.
My wife and I stayed here with friends for 1 week, mid-august 2010. We flew from Gatwick to Pisa where we hired a car and drove the 45 mins or so to the barn conversion. The directions were good but our faith in our map reading ability wasn't. Definitely keep a picture of the front gates handy when travelling there for the first time. The accomodation was perfect for our needs. My partner and I stayed in the downstairs double room which had a bathroom and kitchen next to it and our friends with young son stayed in the double and single room upstairs which also had its own bathroom and kitchen. The whole appartment was furnished to a high specification which meant we ate in more than we expected to enjoyed our suroundings. The pool was great to cool off in whilst looking at the Tuscan hills. Considering there were other people staying in the development, we had the pool to ourselves on the couple of occasions we went down which we liked. The Location was perfect for my wife, who is a massive fan of the Twilight books, to see Volterra and fantasise about running up the bell tower. There was a festival on whilst we were there which took over the whole town and had a great buzz about it and there are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat and a souvenir or two. Montecatini and Sienna are also worth a visit if you can venture further than the appartment. I'd also recommend heading to the local vinyards to pick up a litre or 2 of the local wine which was delicious and well priced.
Owner's reply: There are still loads of Twilight lovers visiting. Volterra is known as the city of magic and mystery, and it suits the Twilight mood. Sorry about the directions! We keep on improving them to make them as easy as possible to follow.
“It's so good we booked it again for 2012.”
Less than an hour drive from Pisa airport and situated in a quiet/private area the property is an ideal base to explore this part of Tuscany from. Volterra (20 minute drive) is a wonderful, ancient town, which quickly became a favourite place to visit, day or night. The property itself "does what it says in the adverts" in that it was spotlessly clean and contained everything a holiday home could possibly need. A late afternoon swim in the outdoor pool soon became a favourite option, often followd by an early evening barbeque. All in all we would have no hesitation in recommending this property, and can't wait to be back there later this year.
Owner's reply: We're glad it was as good as we had promised. We want 'Tuscan Skies' to be a home from home, not just a holiday let, and it's good to hear you had everything you needed. We hope your stay this year is even better!
“The Dream Vacation in Tuscany!”
Fabulous Stay, Gorgeous, truly a dream on all levels. Location, setting, and the charm of the hills. We adored our stay in our dual kitchen apartment. Our young adults, 25,26 and 29 where upstairs and our evening gatherings where downstairs in the lower cucina. There was no need to leave except for a visit to Firenza, San Giminagno, Sienna and Volterra which were a lovely drives away. It was just pleasant to dine in ! We rented Motorcycles which added such flavor to pulling up to our charming ESTATE of a FARM and drive up the path to heaven!. Quite, and Gorgeous... The deer, rabbits and local farm animals surrounding us and the city of Volterra to our Backs lit up our Tuscan Skies !!! Can not wait to return! Our apartment kept all 5 of us completely content, relaxed and in love with our choice! TIPS: watch out for Speed cameras!! Wake up early and catch the View from each window, balcony, and courtyard! :) Buona Fortuna!
Owner's reply: The views really are marvellous from every angle. Because the light changes all the time, it's as if it's a fresh view every time you see it! We've seen the photos you posted of your stay, and you certainly seem to have had some fabulous meals.
