About The Experience

This ancient country villa offers an elegant Tuscan experience for large groups of families or friends. Situated just 25 minutes from the city of Florence, the location of this villa is convenient for visiting the towns of the Chianti region. While at your villa, your group can relax by the private pool or in one of the many indoor and outdoor common areas. Whether you would like to sit back and take in the views of the surrounding countryside or tour local wineries and towns, this villa is the right choice for your large group!

Location Description

This villa is located just less than five kilometers from San Donato in Collina, a small Italian village with a post office, grocery shops, butcher, and pizzeria. San Donato is located in the Florentine hills, very close to the city itself. After driving for about 20 miles, you will reach Florence, a majestic city world-renowned for its art and culture. Go here to shop the Ponte Vecchio, marvel at the statue of David, step back in time at the Pitti Palace, or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery. Of course, you could also simply relax in the Piazza della Signoria with a book or a refreshing drink. Of course you can also hop in the car and wander through the Chianti, tasting locally made wine and investigating many of the famed hill towns. Try Greve in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti. Day trips to other well-know Tuscan locales, such as Siena and San Gimignano, are also possible.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
A wonderful two weeks was thoroughly enjoyed by our entire family of 20 people aged from 4 years up to 70 years. Facilities were excellent in every respect and assistance was readily at hand with any questions we posed to Roberta who was fantastic.
Enjoyed Most:
Views from all upstairs rooms were amazing as the Villa sits on top of the hill amongst the Olive groves and vineyards.
Enjoyed Least:
The swimming pool was excellently appointed but would be more usable with solar heating. The kids did venture in on the hottest days but the water temperature was too low to be comfortable even for them.
Surrounding Area:
Scenery and ambience of the Tuscan region was the best and the relative isolation of the Villa made this a peaceful haven to return to after visits to the key centres within a days drive.
Nearby Events or Locales:
San Donato in Collina is not far away but not walking distance unless you are very fit and had no shopping to carry. Stores are quaint but produce limited. Coffee is excellent at all shops in this village and fresh local produce when available was beautiful including the bakery.
Tips or Restaurants:
Absolutely essential to have a car as the shopping could not be managed any other way for such a large group. Shopping at the coop.com in Regnano sul'Arno was excellent for all our needs including local wines at good prices. The restaurant 100 Palms is quite close by and has excellent food supported by great service and wine ion advice from Daniel. Travel by train to Florence is easy but parking at the Regnano sul'Arno train station is quite difficult especially with the large people movers (vans) that we had hired.
Check In Out:
All went smoothly as Roberta was well equipped and experienced albeit that her English is sometimes limited but her efforts to assist in every way were very compelling.

Overall:
A once in life time experience. All our 3 children and four grand children plus visitors from Australia and the USA ( 19 in all) had a fabulous time. Over and beyond all our expectations.
Enjoyed Most:
Its size. Its position up on a hillside in relative seclusion. Opening the windows at night time. It was very hot for the two weeks we there. An unusual heat wave affected the whole of Europe but at night time cool breezes were wonderful. Being able to sit on the patio in the evening. The large swimming pool which adults and children alike spent a lot of time in. The ensuite bathrooms The large dining areas and a great kitchen. The two banquets that Roberta the owner organized for us were wonderful.
Surrounding Area:
The peace and quiet. The ability for joggers and walkers in our group to keep up their morning rituals on quiet roads and pathways amidst the olive groves associated with the villa.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Rignano sull'Arno (FI). It was not within walking distance but it had a small supermarket and coffee shop. Because of the size of the groups we had four cars so that was not a problem. There are other great supermarkets and wine stores within a 35 minute drive.
Tips or Restaurants:
No. Most everything we needed was already available.
Directions:
Some of us had problems getting from the rental car area associated with the Florence airport. It was quite complicated. I think the coordinates we received (GPS Coordinates Latitude 43.738637 Longitude 11.416271) were a bit off.
Check In Out:
Checking in and out was perfect. Roberta and her staff who cleaned every day were wonderful, friendly and courteous.

Overall:
Superb location for a family reunion. The lovely bedrooms rooms and big communal areas allowed family time and when needed, quiet time. 19 people were accommodated most comfortably.
Enjoyed Most:
The beauty of the villa and size and layout and its ability to accommodate all of us so comfortably.
Enjoyed Least:
The lack of cooling in the hot weather we experienced in July. We were supplied with fans, which certainly helped. The upstairs rooms heated up but at least with the big windows some evening breeze helped out.
Surrounding Area:
The views were just stunning.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No towns were in walking distance. We had to shop almost daily in Rignano sull'Arno which was approx 6km away. The local shops were great but of course we had to get used to their opening times which were not always consistent.
Tips or Restaurants:
A car is a necessity. Pack lightly as you have to haul your cases up many stairs. Mosquito repellant in the summer. Nuovo Rancho and 100 Palms were family type restaurants nearby for hearty Italian meals.
Directions:
A GPS is a necessity for getting around the district as well.
Check In Out:
I would like to commend the staff on their pleasant service.
