About The Experience

With its location in the hills of the Chianti wine zone, this Tuscany villa is a great destination for the wine lover! Just three kilometers away from this Tuscany vacation rental is the renowned Wine Culture Center in Montespertoli, along with plenty of opportunities to go wine tasting. This lovely and classy villa has many antiques, oriental rugs, and two kitchens, making it ideal for a family or two couples and their kids. The whole family will love this Tuscany villa with a pool and satellite TV, as well as going to town and eating pizza. Depending on when you come, annual festivals are held throughout the year celebrating everything from wine to doughnuts!

Location Description

The nearest town to this villa is Montespertoli, and it is definitely filled with enough fun things to do so that you should never get bored. Here you can buy groceries, go wine tasting, visit medieval and ancient castles and churches, shop for souvenirs, attend food fairs, or eat at one of the many restaurants, pizzerias, or wine bars. Festivals are also held throughout the year if you would like to learn more about local and national cultural celebrations, such as the Chianti Wine Festival in June or the Doughnut Festival in March. Only a day trip away is Florence, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. See the Duomo, the Academy Gallery, and Palazzo Vecchio firsthand, then go shopping in one of the open-air or flea markets filled with antiques and other goods. For more high-end shopping, be sure to visit Via dei Tornabuoni. San Gimignano is also nearby and is one of the most visited villages in Tuscany. Here you can see the 12th century Duomo, the People's Palace, and visit museums dedicated to artwork and archeology. You can also go shopping for arts and crafts, as well as see the famous towers and castle. A train station in Florence can connect you to other Tuscan cities, such as Siena or Pisa, which also prove to be convenient and enjoyable day trips away from your villa.

Overall:
Our experience at Villa San Paolo was relaxing, comfortable, magical and breathtakingly beautiful.
Enjoyed Most:
The location, the view, and the peacefulness. The spaciousness, antique furniture and art throughout the villa.
Enjoyed Least:
The pots, pans, baking and serving dishes were somewhat limited in the kitchen. This was a minor issue and we made it work with what was there.
Surrounding Area:
The rural, agricultural nature of this location and the nearness of the cities we were able to visit on day trips from the villa.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montespertoli was charming with a Tuesday market in the Piazza. It was a short ride to town, but not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
The local Pizzaria, Osteria del Tempo Perso, "Wasted Time Tavern," was excellent with beautiful views dining on the outdoor deck.
Check In Out:
Our hosts, Ida and Renatto, were very charming and helpful during our stay. Ida saved us by connecting us to a local dentist in Florence when one in our party needed emergency care.

Overall:
Truly the best vacation place we've experienced - the villa and Tuscany!!
Enjoyed Most:
The multitude of amenities. There were nine of us - we had places to gather and enjoy each other's company, yet we had plenty of places to go for solitude.
Surrounding Area:
Oh Tuscany!! If you've been you don't need any details from me. If you haven't, get on the next plane to Florence! You'll see!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montespertoli. No, it was not walkable. Well, you actually could walk there, but there was so much to do and see in Tuscany, we didn't want to take the time. We wanted to get to Montespertoli quick and enjoy! You have to get to Paolini Pasticceria and enjoy an expresso and pastry, or even the Coop (grocery store) was great fun.
Tips or Restaurants:
DO rent a car and GPS - unless you are going simply to sit and sip wine and gaze out on the views!! If not, you can travel day trips all through Tuscany from the Villa. We even did a day trip out to the coast, to Cinque Terra!
Directions:
Yes, a GPS is a must. Actually we had a GPS and two or three smartphones. They didn't all always agree on which way to go. So, I cannot imagine driving the back roads without a GPS.
Check In Out:
Renato made check in and out quick and easy. And, she was a delight!! She even called for dining reservations for the nine of us the first night!
