About The Experience

This quaint Tuscan accommodation is set high and a hill and surrounded by large, beautiful grounds with a gorgeous swimming pool. The views are divine, especially from the first floor balcony. The central location of this holiday rental in the Valdichiana will allow you and your family to easily visit many wonderful areas of Tuscany.

Location Description

The property is located six kilometers from Foiano della Chiana where you'll find a golf course, restaurants, and shops, but its claim to fame is its annual carnival which first began in the year 1539 and is the oldest in Italy. The four districts of the town (Bombolo, Azzurri, Rustici, and Nottambuli) compete for the Carnival’s Cup by trying to build the most impressive and creative float. The ancient Etruscan town of Cortona is a short drive away and is full of art, history, and culture. Tour frescoed churches from the 13th century; explore the original city walls, and then visit an art exhibit in the 16th century fortress. You are also sure to find restaurants featuring delicious Tuscan dishes and ancient sarcophagi dating back to the second century BC. There are plenty of local shops selling antiques, crafts, wines, and olive oils. Other great day trip destinations include Arezzo, Castiglion Fiorentina, Montepulciano, and Siena.

Nearby Attractions: Castiglion Fiorentino (hiking, biking, antique shops, Church of Saint Angelo, Church of Saint Francesco, Palazzo Pretorio), Cortona (13th century churches, art exhibits, restaurants, ancient tombs, shops), S. Albino (spas), Lake Trasimeno (wind surfing, boat rental), Siena

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Extremely satisfying. Very relaxing, so peaceful and the views are spectacular.
Enjoyed Most:
The views are spectacular.
Enjoyed Least:
Both kitchen and bathrooms lacked counter space.
Surrounding Area:
Easy to get to.
Tips or Restaurants:
Refrigerator is small, so we used sandwich and gallons bags for left overs. Prior guest left items behind (sponges, dish soap, spices, tea bags). And we did the same. Olive oil, salt/pepper, sugar.
Directions:
Mention that it is in the country, no street lights, signage is very small. GPS is a must.
Check In Out:
The process was smooth. No issues.

Overall:
We loved the property and the farmhouse. Loved having a pool and took a couple of days to just enjoy the house and pool area.
Enjoyed Most:
The house and the scenery. It was lovely. The family nearby was a blessing and we loved everyone. Cata cooked for us and Barbara was so available for all the questions and needs we had. They even arranged for a sick husband to see a doctor. Thanks and love to each.
Enjoyed Least:
We did not have the air on and we expected it to be a bit cooler. We opened the doors and windows, but kept getting a houseful of bugs and mosquitoes. No screens so we felt a bit closed up when there.
Surrounding Area:
We visited every town in the two weeks. Some places we had been but the smaller towns we had not seen. We revisited the places we had been several times and explored the smaller towns and found wonderful places to have lunch or dinner.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No, we had to drive in from the villa. We went often to the Coop for supplies and food.
Tips or Restaurants:
Get out and explore. Many good places to eat. Then walk and more walking. Good walking shoes are a MUST! We went prepared. First 3 days were cooler and the ladies bought jackets in Cortona. (Did not pack jackets that were warm enough). Did not need them after 3 days so they were packed away.
Directions:
No, we had a good man that was a good navigator. Actually one driver and two navigating.
Check In Out:
All of the emails and letter and studying maps worked for us. You all made it easy and we really appreciate all that time and effort. Good communication was the key.

Overall:
The villa was everything I expected and more. The pictures don't do it justice. It was immaculate and very comfortable for our family of 7. The family that owns it is fabulous. We can't wait to go back again!
Enjoyed Most:
The views of the surrounding area took my breath away. I would open the upstairs window every morning and just stare out at the views for about 10 minutes, taking it all in. The infinity pool was also magnificent.
Surrounding Area:
We totally enjoyed visiting all the small surrounding towns in our area, experiencing the food and wine in several of them.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Foiano della Chiana. It was about a 5-10 minute car ride.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring pool towels. We thought the villa came with them, but it didn't. We did not have one bad meal in Tuscany, so try all those in the surrounding towns - don't be afraid, you'll definitely be pleased.
Directions:
The directions we received from the owner were perfect. Due to the villa's location (on top of a hill), we saw the villa way before we pulled up to it's driveway.
Check In Out:
We just want to commend the owners on their friendly, open, pleasant way they had about them throughout our stay. Whenever we had a question, Barbara would text right back to us with answers or if we knocked on Catia's door, she gladly helped us out with whatever it was we needed.
