Customer Reviews

Overall:
We loved the villa. It was close to Capanne and the train station in San Romano. We road the train to Pisa, Firenze and Siena. It was also within an hour's drive to Volterra. We cooked most days and rested well in the villa. The view was gorgeous from the villa and each evening we sat on the patio and watched deer and pheasants while drinking wine produced on the estate.
Enjoyed Most:
It was so peaceful and comfortable. Everyone made our stay so enjoyable.
Enjoyed Least:
The main office was not open at the times we were coming or going so I did not buy as much wine as I would have liked.
Surrounding Area:
The sounds and sights of the hills around the villa.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Capanne was the closest and we could not walk but is was about 2-3 km distance, but a very easy drive.
Tips or Restaurants:
Clothes line. The washing and drying took about 2 hours per load. By hanging the clothes in the spare half bath I was able to dry clothes while on day trips. I also bought toilet paper and some bathroom cleaning supplies to keep it clean while there.
Directions:
The directions were explicit but I had Google Earth before I left and had a virtual tour of the area. We had GPS in our car and traveled with a WiFi so we had 2 references.
Check In Out:
All went smoothly.

Thomas, October

Overall:
Amazing! Wish I was still there!
Enjoyed Most:
The authenticity.
Surrounding Area:
Proximity to train station.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montopoli, yes.
Tips or Restaurants:
There is a really good bread place in Montopoli.
Directions:
We used a GPS and were able to find the property easily.
Check In Out:
Everything went smoothly!

Marjorie, October

Overall:
Beautiful setting, nice roomy bedrooms.
Enjoyed Most:
The view.
Enjoyed Least:
Cheap blankets on bed. The pool closes at 8.
Surrounding Area:
The beach at Viareggio and the walled city of Lucca within an hour's drive.
Check In Out:
A little more information would have been nice, such as where to put the garbage.

Phil, June

Overall:
A very relaxing location in a beautifully equipped property.
Enjoyed Most:
The location and setting were ideal. We were able to have easy access to the freeway and shopping, and yet appreciated the rural area and enjoyed walking on the estate.
Surrounding Area:
We loved to walk and explore the estate and the little villages nearby. We were also able to take advantage of the east and reasonable train access to Florence from the nearby station San Romano.
Nearby Events or Locales:
There was a village within walking distance but Montopoli was a short car drive away.
Tips or Restaurants:
We enjoyed Marti Lago and also the little yellow house just outside the main gates for a reasonable meal. It was within walking distance--about a 12-minute walk each way.
Directions:
We would just add to look for entrance gates to a property called Varramista.

Jan, July

Overall:
Overall it was a great week! The weather was perfect and we were able to absolutely relax! Our side trips were very easy and we were able to get back in time for a swim.
Enjoyed Most:
The pool area was very clean and very well kept. Sunset from the pool area was spectacular. Plus all the tree-lined roads leading up to our villa added to the charm. Bedrooms were spacious and bathrooms were well kept, air-conditioning was a nice perk.
Enjoyed Least:
There were lots of extra charges: Internet service, pool towels were 9 Euros per person, wine tasting and tour, which we didn't do, at 17 Euros per person. Also, we only had one change of towels during our stay, contrary to the daily change as listed. Also no DVD player as listed. We also had a problem with ants on our patio - but they took care of that after we mentioned it to them.
Surrounding Area:
Very accessible to many areas. We did Pisa and Lucca in one day, also did the Cinque Terre area in a day. Supermarkets and a nice restaurant were all near by. The estate was big enough to go on nice long runs in private, secure area.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Capanne was only about 2 miles away...you could walk 1.2 miles would be within the villa estate. We are a walking family so it was definitely doable for us.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring insect spray. Tuscan mosquitoes are big!!

Margo, August

Overall:
We loved it, and would go back any time. It was a little remote, but we would have driven a lot anyway.
Enjoyed Most:
The house we stayed in was perfect for our family. Very clean, inviting and very livable. The patios and pool areas were so peaceful.
Enjoyed Least:
There was wine tasting at the property from their own cellar, but only if there were 8 people. We had 6 in our party and no one else was staying at their property, so we never were able to taste.
Surrounding Area:
It was beautiful and very private.
Tips or Restaurants:
Beach towels if you want to use the pool. We had to pay for them.

Pam, June

Overall:
It was so much more than any of us had expected!
Enjoyed Most:
The view was beautiful. The property was absolutely breathtaking. The bedrooms, bathrooms were so comfortable and nicely done. The property was very upscale and exclusive.
Enjoyed Least:
The distance from towns we wanted to visit. Other than Pisa and Lucca, we were more interested in seeing sites south of Florence. It took us up to two hours each way to get to places. Also, I would have preferred to have been right in a town. We needed to drive to get to the nearest town. However, the beauty of the property made up for this.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty of the landscape. It was like nothing I had seen. When you looked out, it was as if you were staring at a painting.
Tips or Restaurants:
No, this place had it all and they provided us with a list of fantastic restaurants that we really enjoyed.

Denise, July

Overall:
I would go again and will recommend to others. Thanks for a great vacation.
Enjoyed Most:
Lots of space for 8 adults. Peace and quiet.
Enjoyed Least:
Kitchen was a little difficult to use with dishes in a different room. Washer-dryer was SLOW.
Surrounding Area:
Location was great between Pisa, Firenze and Lucca. We visited all... some twice.
Tips or Restaurants:
Taking the trains to and from Firenze was convenient and saved the frustration of traffic and parking. Make reservations ahead of time for the Uffizi and Galleria dell'Accademia in Firenze. Great restaurant in Palaia - Ristorante Il Pettirosso. Great views from the top of the mountain.

Debbie, June

Enjoyed Most:
Layout of the property, views and the peace and tranquility. Convenient to the many places that we visited during our stay.
Enjoyed Least:
Very little, Could have used some instructions on the items in the house, eg security system, use of the dish TV system.
Surrounding Area:
Location. As stated above it was very convenient to the major highway that served as a start to visit the Tuscany area.

Louis A., May

Overall:
Exceeded our expectations in almost every regard: surroundings, proximity to historical cities, furnishings, size, and external finish were first rate
Enjoyed Most:
Secluded location yet featured a pool, great views, open spaces, and only a 5 minute drive to the Autostrada.
Enjoyed Least:
Several small things having to do with electrical and electronics issues. For example, Internet access should be made available via reception (OK to charge and make it on a reservations-only basis at certain times of the day). The batteries in the AC remote control units appeared to need changing. A simple one page set of instructions for using the two TV remotes would have been good, and either a VCR or DVD player would have been ideal. The windows in the first bedroom (Mimosa) on the 2nd floor and kitchen door (leading to garden)leaked badly when there was a rainstorm in the night. The floor was totally wet and we had to do some mopping. Around the pool, the wooden deck is splintering and our sons got several slivers in their feet.
Surrounding Area:
Aside from the four dwellings in our immediate area, no other buildings were visible from our villa. The rolling fields gave the impression of deep countryside even though we were just minutes away from primary and secondary roads.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We did the standard tourist day trips to Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Florence, Voltera, San Gimignano and other similar towns. Each was less than an hour away.
Tips or Restaurants:
Matilde Palma and the security/ maintenance team provided a very good overall level of service -- at least on par with a 4-star hotel.

Bradley A., August

Overall:
We had the best time in the world at this villa.
Enjoyed Most:
We could not have been in a more beautiful spot. The villa had the best of everything. All the furnishings and services were top of the line. The manager, couldn't have been nicer. She made us feel very special. The view was spectacular. The vineyards and poplar trees were spectacular. Everything was spotless. They took great pride in running the vineyard. We were even given special buzzers to open gates. I would recommend this property to everyone who is looking for an experience in Tuscany.
